61 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.

62 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?

Not bad.

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.

64 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.

65 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

66 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.

Ok Madonna cannot act. Shanghai surprise was a disaster - ChatonNoir

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

They don't get any hotter

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

She got her big break in 2013 with The Wolf of Wall Street, where she was acclaimed for her performance, and being hailed "the hottest woman I've seen in a while" by ...read more.

She's only so famous because people think she's pretty. SHE'S NOT EVEN THAT HOT! IT BOTHERS ME SO MUCH! Flat breasts and ass. Stomach's a bit big. Hardly has a waist. Her face bugs me out

Only famous for Nudity in TWOWS. Her acting is soap opera standard and her only range s - IheartMac

Ugly with makeup, even worse looking with no makeup. She is good at taking her clothes off, but she lacks acting talent, her true life's calling was to be a stripper. She lacks the body to be a stripper, so now she plays one on the big screen.

Not a good actress, lacks talent.

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 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.

72 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

73 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

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

Nickelodeon's Selena Gomez. She will force you to like Justin Bieber. She makes Jar Jar Binks easier to listen to.

75 Sylvester Stallone Sylvester Stallone

Stallone makes great movies hands down. He is meant for Hollywood. After all he wrote Rocky. That movie is his movie by every means possible and that movie franchise amongst Rambo as well are American Classics for a reason. They are original and awesome. It's hard to believe anyone under 25 would not like him. For those under 25... No offense but most of you are deprived of the movies that evolved Hollywood in to what it is and need to watch more classics.

Biggest whore in all of Hollywood. The violence in his movies are obscene pornography. Retire already.

Terrible actor, why he can't make good drama films that he used to be in the 70's and 80's when he was a small-time porn star?

He became an A list actor for one part. 'Rocky'. He's Tom Cruise before Tom Cruise. God do I hate his movies except for 'Rocky'. If I met him I'd laugh my ass off.

76 Steven Seagal Steven Seagal Steven Frederic Seagal is an American actor, film producer, screenwriter, film director, martial artist, Aikido instructor, musician, reserve deputy sheriff and entrepreneur.

He only knows how to play the same kind of role : some guy who can do martial arts and is out for revenge. I can't even sit through five minutes of any of his movies. Poor thing.

It's really not fair to over criticize Martial Artist gone actors. Acting was not there first choice of occupation or skill to master. It's Martial Arts. Once they do perfect there skill over many years of practice and training a window opens up for them to showcase their abilities and some of these martial artists are lucky enough to have enough acting skill to make a good action movie. It's not like they are trying to take on roles like Tom Hanks in Philadelphia for example. In that case then you can bash but at that point you should probably bash those who cast someone like Seagal for that role. He is good for what he does. Action movies.

worst excuse for an actor ever. - danajs24

Same movie, same acting. And only shoot him from the chest up cause of the gut.

77 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.

That whole family can't act.

78 Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, investor, author, philanthropist, activist, former professional bodybuilder and former politician.

Best in his role of the Terminator. In other words, his best work is when he's portraying a cyborg; void of facial expression, emotions and any general characteristic traits...

I agree he's not a great actor but the accent thing? Think about it.. His first language was dramatically different from English... That's like having an American actor in a Japanese movie and criticizing them for not having an authentic Japanese accent...

Doesn't take seriously roles. Most of his movies are as an action star. He's the king of the one liner. I like him, but I don't see him as a true actor.

Kindergarten Cop. enough said. Blech

79 Marilyn Monroe Marilyn Monroe Marilyn Monroe, born Norma Jeane Mortenson Baker (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress and model. Decades after her unexpected death, she has remained one of Hollywood's greatest sex symbols with her eye-catching style, champagne blond hair, and breathless manner of speaking. She ...read more.

I can't believe she's not on the top ten. She should be number one. She can't act. Neither can Audrey Hepburn and most 50s fads. But with Marilyn it's not just the acting. Her looks and dare also way overrated. And I don't know what Paris Hilton's doing on this list. Why is she overrated? No one even likes her acting. And Kristen and Miley aren't really praised for their acting. They just have a lot of young fans. I agree Meryl Streep is "overrated", but not bad. And Marlon Brando, definitely overrated.

Nothing special actress with very little talent and mediocre looks. She was famous because she was a whore, because she had curves, and because she looked kinda cute with her pancake makeup, bleached out hair and fake nose. Not a good role model for girls or women at all. But then, most celebrities are extremely overrated and should not be glorified the way they are. Makes for a sick society.

I agree - Marilyn Monroe was all about teasing men and looking pretty and happy all the time - to attract more men! Even if they were already taken! She couldn't act! Too "breathy" all the time - too drunk and drugged out all the time. That's SPECIAL? And how much bleach do you really need? And was that mole even real? There are older pictures of her where there wasn't even a mole on her face. Who's idea was that? She should be the #1 OVERRATED Actress HANDS DOWN!

Pure garbage. She would have no accolades or praise had she lived and given us the chance to really assess her talentless overrated performances rather than the ridiculous way she was romanticized

He is the best :) I like him so much. He's one of the best actors EVER.

As brilliant as Robin Williams.

He can act, but most of his roles and movies are horrible, and everybody loves him so much for some reason. That's what you call "overrated".

He is my childhood favorite! I love him and I still do!
