Beautiful brilliant and highly talented actor
Fabulous actor. Multi talented.
Most of the times a good actor. But in very dramatic roles I think he needs to still improve his acting. I hope he does because otherwise he will never be a great actor to compete with the best.

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 romanticizedV 10 Comments
What idiot put this great actor on this list?
He was a fine character actor in the film noire genre
Great actor of the understating, he knew his genre.
This isn't serious! Robert Mitchum a overrated actor? He's a LEGEND and should not be in this list at all.V 2 Comments
Just because you can play the governor of Alaska doesn't make you talented!
She can do a lot more than just play dopey Palin. One of the all-time greats on SNL and then there was this show called Thirty Rock? One of the hardest workers in the industry. A very talented, industrious lady. Plus, she and Amy Poehler were hilarious hosting the Oscars together.
I think she so NOT funny. I don't like Amy p either - ChatonNoir
Love him. What a talented authentic actor
So beautiful and moving
Shouldn't be anywhere on this list. He is a wonderful and believable actor and convinces me in every single movie he's ever done. He's a true wonder.
Ok there is a bot or something doing these comments because Tobey Maguire sucks. Just watch this man cry in Spider-Man. It'll make you throw up.V 6 Comments
The female version of nick cage. Hollywood cookie cutter plastic.
Same with todays mainstream music, bunch of prefab, no talent, money grubbing, attention whoring crap with no soul.
I thank my parents everyday for bringing me into the world, long ago, when real music flowed like water and so called actors and actresses were real thespians.
So overrated. Always acting in the same manners. Maybe fair acting in comedies, but honestly,when you see three or four movies of that genre with her, you will get bored after that, just because she plays them all the same way. Conclusion : Overrated and not a great actress either.
I just don't get it either...
Always acts in the same annoying style, I acctualy liked her in the mid 90s, not now - gruppenfuhrerV 14 Comments
The same deadpan style in every film
Kevin Costner has some talent, but he's a very bad actor. He can play the sincere role, but he can't do much else. He also doesn't like to do any movie where he isn't the lead. Makes him kind of conceited in my book.
"Zzz, he's so boring on screen... Where are the old time greats! Give me William Holden, Humphrey Bogart, Greg Peck any day! "
Hate this guy. When the doctor slapped his butt when he was born I wish he'd removed the stick while he was down there already. I think Madonna emphasized it best when she made a gagging sound and a finger-in-the-mouth gesture when he was backstage at her Truth or Dare concert. (Ok, maybe I'm dating myself, but you all get the gist)V 2 Comments
Except for Ghost, A Few Good Men and maybe the 80s hit St. Elmo's Fire, Demi Moore's whole career has been a joke based on her looks and films such as Nothing But Trouble, About Lasr Night, Striptease, Disclosure, and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle which were all bombs at the box Office. She is known more for being with Bruce Willis and now Ashton Kutcher. - brettfan
Couldn't agree more. Ghost, that's it! A few good men movie was great, her performance was not. More famous for scandals, marriages, controversial pictures etc. No acting skills whatsoever.
If she had acting skills, she has lost them. They are gone. Sad
Horrible actress and looks like a man.V 5 Comments
Drier than plain burnt toast. Completely deadpan and flatlined performances - sounds like she is struggling to read lines without actually comprehending them.
Nothing but a hardcore porn whore.
She literally made me stop watching Criminal Minds this season. She is that awful.
She gets every T.V. secondary role there is, must have a great agent - what I would asked the shows that hire her- why? what is this person adding, are there not 100 unknown actresses who can bring the same or better?
What a phenomena. The best actress that ever was!
Her being abused doesn't make up for her lack of any real talent.
It's obvious you guys didn't see Still Alice. You wouldn't even consider putting her on this list.
I can't understand why this actress gets so many positive reviews by the critics and so much praise. Her acting skills are not that good ( sometimes really boring ) and she seems not to be a very good in playing different characters. She plays Always the same way when it comes to express emotions. What bothers me the most is that she's most of the time nominated, wins awards, Oscars when other nominated actresses who are really talented deserve to win. Is concidered also as one of the most beautiful women
( chosen by people's magazine in the top 50 ) when in reality she's one of the ugliest actresses of Hollywood. Why such a bad actress is Always in the spotlights is a mystery to me but proves also that she is really overrated. In terms of overrating,I believe that she's too low on this list. Should be at least in the top 10 if you ask me.
How is she on this list? She is a great actress. She looks stunning. Always interesting even in mediocre films. Maybe a bit on the boring side but not everyone can be funny - ChatonNoir
Definitely one of the ugliest A-list actresses in Hollywood, and hard-to-watch acting to boot. She ruined Hannibal, along with several other films. Every once in awhile she does okay, as long as she's not a main character.V 14 Comments
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!V 15 Comments
Has been an understated performer since time immemorial. An unbelievably brilliant actor and director.
Very good actor. I can name a dozen movies of his I like. Mostly from the 70's and 80's. He hasn't made many movies in the last 20 years - I think because he likes producing more. He produces and directs now.
Absolutely this love this siren of the screen. Underrated, if anything.
Good actor and one of the most beautiful human beings ever - ChatonNoirV 4 Comments
Russell Crow is one of my favorite actors.
I can't believe it people with comments below are such inadequate.
His role in Gladiator was one of the best in his career.
But in my opinion his best role was in Beautiful Mind and he deserved Oscar for this class act performance - Great Actor!
I agree. I hate him and I don't know why meg ryan screwed around with him. She ruined her career.
Prick can't act - gruppenfuhrer
Can I buy a vowel? Like an "e" to put at the end of his last name, so it's spelled right?V 2 Comments
POP STAR PRINCESS! SARAH G.
Great actor, not every role he's played has suited his style of acting. He has talent. I once listened to an audio book "The Great Gatsby" narrated by Tim Robbins, it was powerful. I had read the book & since watched the latest movie incarnation, nothing came close to the power he could wield in his narration.
Brilliant, deep, insightful and powerful actor. Probably the best there is.
What a cutie - lucky Susan Sarandon (as long as it lasted) - BrendaRenee
I think he's hot in shawshank and he's really a good actor who never overdoes it. - ChatonNoirV 9 Comments
