61 Will Smith Will Smith

He is an arrogant idiot. I remember in a "song" of his in 1999 that he said "Millennium? Nah, willennium". As if 2000 years of history has led up to this man declaring himself the centre of history. This arrogance (unjustified - he's not good looking or good at acting) comes across in many ways, both subtle and blatant. Get a life, you moron! Praising yourself is ugly, not cool!

Okay, you guys need to get a grip. Let's put you in Will's shoes and see the absolutely wonderful (note sarcasm) job you do on the big screen. Just please shut up. Do you not have anything better to do?

He is so annoying included his son and daughter, who they think they are? Untalented family. they are a waste of space!

Very inconsistent

62 Vince Vaughn Vince Vaughn

Undeserved critics that he is a one-dimensional actor who plays over and over the same characters. Maybe true for some part but even so, the characters he's playing are very well performed. Just because he is not versatile as an actor doesn't mean that he is a bad actor. Overrated? Nobody ever said that he was an exeptional actor who can play everything. So?

63 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has ...read more.

I seriously believe that Madonna would have been the mother of all publicists. She can't sing (even though when I was a kid, I loved her first four albums), she can't act and yet has managed to stay in the spotlight. She knows how to promote herself and she actually looks better now than she did 30 years ago. The mother of reinvention but the worst "singer turned actress" ever... Yes even worse than Beyonce.

How did Madonna fail to make first on the list? No talent except for selling herself and over hyping everything she does. Someone needs to tell Grandma that she's too old to sell her bod.

I don't understand how someone in front of millions of people for YEARS at this point can still be so wooden in her interviews & when she tries to act. Why can't she relax & be more fluid & expressive? She's just a plank board. It's painful watching her try to act.

Okay I really I'm tired of everybody hating on Madonna okay because she is actually I really decent actress and an amazing singer. She even won a golden globe for her performance in Evita and she was nominated for awards in her roles in Four Rooms, Desperately seeking Susan and Dick Tracy so yeah her awards speak for themselves

64 Cara Delevingne Cara Delevingne

Screw Paper Towns. She hooked up with Nat Wolff and Selena Gomez. She seemed rather miscast as the Sorceress in Suicide Squad. Does anyone want bleach this instant?

The only rason she is famous is because of her modeling career. No one cares much for her as an actress at all. Plus the only reason she gets roles in films is because of her modeling career. She's a good model, she just has no acting talent at all.

She ruined suicide squad that's an enough reason for her to be on that list

65 Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Kate Hudson is an American singer, actress and spokesperson. She rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist on the third season of American Idol, coming in seventh place.

Her commercials make me want to stick forks in my ears. Make her voice stop, or teach her better pronunciation.

No talent, acts more like a Jewish princess. Certainly not like her mother Goldie Hawn who is a fabulous comedic and dramatic actress!

Laugh out loud... I like 'Almost Famous' but HATE every other movie she has made. She's okay as an actress but never takes risks. So its hard to rate her.

Jennifer Hudson is not Goldie Hawn's daughter. Kate Hudson is.

66 Amy Adams Amy Adams Amy Lou Adams is an American actress and singer. She is the recipient of two Golden Globe Awards, and has received five nominations each from the Academy Award and BAFTA Award ceremonies.

Great actress with huge range. Great voice, as well. Need to see much more of her.

Love this superb highly underrated actress. She's so lovely

Look at the movies "the fighter","big eyes", "enchanted", "Sunshine cleaning", "leap year", "julie&julia", "her", "the wedding date "... If you're still thinking that she has no talent and that she is an overrated actress than something must be very wrong in your judgement and your point of view.
A top actress. There's no doubt.

How in the name of all what is Holly can you concider Amy Adams as an overrated actress? Rarely nominated for her movies ( she really deserves to win awards and Oscars ) and most of the time unfairly unnoticed for her talent against less talented and overrated actresses ( Jennifer Lawrence in " American hustle " did get better reviews than Amy Adams when in fact the real talent was Amy Adams in that movie ).
This very beautiful woman is rather underrated than overrated and for that matter she really doesn't belong on this list at all.

Cannot act, his worse role is Jen's boyfriend

68 James Franco James Franco James Edward Franco is an American actor and filmmaker. His first prominent acting role was the lead character Daniel Desario on the short-lived cult hit television program Freaks and Geeks.

Intense intelligent and the best

I'm losing interest in the acting career of this man...

I don't get it. He looks stoned all the time.

69 Marion Davies Marion Davies Marion Davies, born Marion Cecilia Douras (January 3, 1897 – September 22, 1961) was an American film actress, producer, screenwriter, and philanthropist. ...read more.

You know she is overrated when she is #5 Best actress and you know the same person keeps voting for her. Nobodys ever heard of her.

Very Overrated. Many of her contemperaries were more talented ( Louise Brooks, Dolores del Rio,Mary pickford... ).
She had even a stutter problem. Sad and not her fault, but a fact that can't be ignored when you put her on the best actresses list.

70 Jean-Claude Van Damme Jean-Claude Van Damme Jean-Claude Camille François Van Varenberg, professionally known as Jean-Claude Van Damme and abbreviated as JCVD, is a Belgian actor, martial artist, screenwriter, film producer, and director best known for his martial arts action films.

Van Damme is has made some of the best most legendary martial arts films of all time and Van Damme (no offense to Seagal) compared to Seagal is a better actor. He was meant for making great action/martial art movies and they are better than Seagal movies by far. If you can't appreciate movies like Bloodsport and Kickboxer then you have no business judging movies of that type. Keep in mind that martial arts is his primary skill and that goes for all martial artist gone actors. They have good enough acting and awesome athletic martial art abilities to showcase which is why they make great movies or their genre. You simply cannot compare them to actors like Kevin Spacey or Tom Hanks. It's unfair and not what they do. You have to respect them for what they do well.

I like him when he's in movies where he kicks ass. He's very well known for having sex with girls in his car. Haha. He's a Hollywood cliche.

Absolutely the worst ever... His movies are unwatchable. Love Seagal compared to this clown.

This is great actor

71 Sarah Michelle Gellar Sarah Michelle Gellar Sarah Michelle Gellar is an American actress, producer and entrepreneur. After being spotted by an agent at the age of four in New York City, she made her acting debut in the made-for-TV movie An Invasion of Privacy.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is Buffy! How can anyone not love this woman! She's so sweet and a wonderful wife and mother, she's one of the few female actresses I can actually watch without cringing.

Sarah is perfect. - DecodeThis

An actress who seems to be good in some types of movies or in some types of scripts. Outstanding performances in " Harvard man" ( her best ), " Possesion " and " Veronica wants to die ". Other movies are unwatchable because of her bad acting skills. I think that she has to choose movies that really fits her because she's not the versatile actress that she believes she is. As a matter of fact, this is an actress who is difficult to Judge for her acting skills. The only sure thing about her is that she's really cute.

She was actually very good in the movie " Harvard man ". I'm not a fan of her acting, so I was really surprised. Why can't she act like that all the time?

She's cute, she's pretty, she's beautiful, she's hot, but that's about it!

72 Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Shrader Lawrence is an American actress. Lawrence began her career in television, playing her first major role as a main cast member on the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.

I don't understand why she so low on the worst actors? She sucks as Katniss. 1) she too old to play the main character and 2) her acting remind me of kristen stewart acting on Twilight. No emotions what-so-ever. Boring. She make Peeta look interesting and the actor is one dimension. At least she look cute than stewart but I can imagine several actress make better katniss than her.

Deserves to be at the TOP of this list. She's the most overrated actress of all time. Doesn't deserve half of her awards, and much less the Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook. Her only good performance was in Winter's Bone, all the rest was just a huge package of overrated performances. It's funny cause she beats Kate Winslet to become the youngest actress with more Oscar nominations, while she's not even CLOSE to Kate Winslet talent as an actress. Very, very, very overrated.

When I saw the movie "American hustle" and later on read the critics it was like that suddenly she was the greatest actress alive in this world. Honestly, she doesn't stand out against the real talented Amy Adams in this movie.

Her acting is so medicore nothing special! Oh and an oscar for silver lining? Really?

73 Robert Downey Jr. Robert Downey Jr. Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.

One of my favorite actors. See 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang'. Great movie.

This guy should be in the first spot. Other than a couple of decent movies, his career has went downhill repeating the same Tony Stark formula for his characters.

Very egotistical. His father was a film director. Nepotism strikes again.

I just can't stand him. The new Johnny Depp, sans the extense interesting filmography before becoming so painfully overrated. Chaplin and maybe Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and that's all. After Iron Man, his career has consisted in repeating Tony Stark-esque roles.

74 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto .

I'm not a fan of her singing, but I think she has a potential to become a good actress. She's still learning because she is very young and for that matter I believe it's too soon to Judge her acting capacities. Time will tell us if she's too overrated or not.

Miley Cyrus could learn from her.

I prefer her singing career more than her acting career.

What is wrong with u people Selena Gomez was amazing in the part o beatrice in Romona and Beatrice she is positively amazing inside and out

This girl has not got a great acting bone in her body. That nauseating, vomit inducting, high pitch voice she puts on just makes my stomach wrench in agony as I weep for humanity.
The only real reason people like her is because teenage girls propel this people into the media.

In the T.V.-series " Scream Queens " she did get no more than a few lines and they killed her character after 3 episodes. It says all about her acting capacities. Also in " Zoolander 2 " she says a few words and is in the picture for 20 seconds. Where are her " I have proved my amazing acting skills as an actress " movies?

She's overrated. - Anonymousxcxc

She was awesome on nickolodean as cat so funny and she was a rally good singer like who can not like Her I loved it when she found that machine that made a beep noise and kept on pressing it so I went beep

She can't act her way out of the paper bag plus she has zero personality...

Absolutely gorgeous looking. But I've never liked anything she's done. Annoying. Thank God she never became an A list actress.

Just watching Deep Impact and her rang is incredible. Same face for distress, happy, sad, concern. She makes Haden Christian look practically Oscar worthy

Oh Tea owa wow. So pretty but can't act.

Always takes chances. He can do serious. One of the funniest, most talented people on the planet. Groundhog Day, Caddy shack, and Lost in Translation. Pops up in small roles occasionally and nails it, remember Tootsie?

Just look the movie " St. Vincent " from 2014 with co-starring Naomi Watts. If you 're still saying that Bill Murray is an overrated actor, than you have obviously no taste or judging capacities for seeing what talent is. Not overrated. This list isn't right with him here.

78 Mark Wahlberg Mark Wahlberg Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg is an American actor, producer, businessman, and former model and rapper.

Good. I loved him in 'Boogie Nights'. I also loved him in 'The Departed'. 'The Fighter' wasn't bad. I think he's very smart. He produces a lot of stuff and succeeds at almost all of it. Very talented.

I can't think of a single movie I liked because of him, but can think of a few movies that were passable or even good movies where he didn't have a role that hinged on his abilities or that gave him proper support and role.
I also can't think of any movies that couldn't have replaced him with another actor and survived. I've watched far too many bad movies with him to not use his name as a warning sign when it has top billing.

Each film with him as a lead should have a disclaimer: Warning Marky Mark has likely ruined this film which was also likely green lit for all the wrong reasons with the top priority to take your money and sell you that since it made a lot of money it is a good film or that if it fails is not his fault.

For someone that has made so many big movies, he has managed to not have gotten more nominations for awards. I think Mark Wahlberg has had an amazingly successful career and life considering the sum total of his talents. However he did have a very strong physique that he honed to a sharp instrument after almost falling into a life of crime. If he really wanted to make himself look better, he should look for the couple of Asian men he maimed as a kid and give them a few million dollars for their injuries suffered...
I think his career was definitely helped by having a bit of good luck and being in the right places at the right time. After all he almost was on one of the flights that flew into the WTC Buildings on 9/11.

I think he's fabulous and have enjoyed every movie he's ever been in. He's the best there is

Maybe not the worst actor out there but he is for sure too overrated. He's good in some movies ( but I can't decide if that is because the film is good and he's Lucky to be in it or because he is good ) but he's also in much movies where I find him boring and annoying to watch.

I'm in love with him really he he and my husband know

He sucks and good will hunting is one of the worst movies of all time

80 Gwyneth Paltrow Gwyneth Paltrow

Great actress in terrific movies? Emma was one? Look for the " Emma " movie version with Kate Beckinsale ( Real British actress with no fake bad British accent like Gwyneth Paltrow and most of all, better looking and more talented than Gwyneth Paltrow! ). This movie alone proves already that Gwyneth Paltrow is too overrated when you see the Kate Beckinsale version.

The worst actress ever. Worse than Lindsey Lohan!

A inside and outside ugly snob actress! Overrated in everything she does and overrated in everything she is! She's the typical " Lucky connected " Jewish fake person with an arrogant attitude towards others.

Great actress in some terrific movies. Emma was one. Country Strong another. Give her a break already
