81 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.

The one and only Terminator.

82 Hugh Jackman Hugh Jackman Hugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, producer and musician . Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters .

Beautiful brilliant and highly talented actor

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.

Fabulous actor. Multi talented.

I wouldn't say he's overrated. More likely underrated. You know, his career is not all about Wolverine. He is a multi-talented guy.

83 Tina Fey Tina Fey

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.

84 Jennifer Love Hewitt Jennifer Love Hewitt

I don't think that this very beautiful actress is overrated. She's very appreciated by many for her talent ( she's a good actress, she produces, she sings ) and that's hardly the same thing as to be overrated. A very adorable and down to earth actress in real life and she's certainly not just a pretty face with no talent or brains that's only be there to watching by.

Not overrated but underrated actress. Most people knows her from her popular movies and her T.V. shows but when you see her lesser-known work you will actually understand how talented she is. This adorable actress really don't deserve to be on this list. She's too talented for that!

The Kristen Stewart of 1997. How and why she keeps getting roles just when you think she's finally gone away for good is beyond me.

She played Audrey Hepburn and that's a joke? Meryl Streep playing Margaret Thatcher ( and getting a winning oscar for that crap ), Nicole Kidman playing Grace Kelly... That are really jokes! Just look at the Audrey Hepburn movies and compare the scenes played by Jennifer Love Hewitt afterwards. Details, mannerisms etc... are in fact very well played by Jennifer Love Hewitt. And what about movies like " A home for Christmas ", " Trojan war ", " The Suburbans ", " Can't hardly wait ", " Heartbreakers ", " Café ", the " Ghost whisperer " series etc... Are these jokes also? Jennifer Love Hewitt is a very talented actress. You don't know what you are saying when you concider this actress as a joke!

85 Tobey Mcguire

Love him. What a talented authentic actor

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.

So amazing and unique and eager to take on challenging roles. Always inspired by him

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.

86 Sandra Bullock Sandra Bullock Sandra Annette Bullock is an American actress and producer. She is one of Hollywood's highest-paid actresses, and is an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award winner.

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.

She has no personality. A "girl next door" kinda actress should be charming but she isn't. She looks like the pretty girl in high school that just was pretty and who everyone secretly thought was boring as heck... - ChatonNoir

Why do people like her? -she chews the scenary every role, total indication (overacting the part) I know she's very earnest - blah blah blah

87 Kevin Costner Kevin Costner

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! "

Plays the same character in every movie

88 Demi Moore Demi Moore Demi Gene Guynes, professionally known as Demi Moore, is an American actress, filmmaker, former songwriter, and model.

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.

90 Nora Aunor

The so-called Superstar of Philippine cinema, although she was great during the early part of her career (her performances in Tatlong Taong Diyos, Banaue, Himala, among others, were superb), by the late '80s her acting has been characterized by formulaic grunts and ridiculous hand gestures, facial gesticulations, and body movement. By the time she did the famous "I did not kill anybody! " line in The Flor Contemplacion Story, her acting prowess has started to decline.

She attacks all her roles with the same boring style. One you've seen one of her movies you've seen the all.

One style acting... She is not versatile... Lousy to look at on screen... Her ugly face is so distracting on screen...

91 Margot Robbie Margot Robbie Margot Elise Robbie is an Australian actress. Robbie started her career by appearing in Australian independent films in the late 2000s. 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

I can act slutty too

Yeah, I don't know what the big deal is with her. It seems like people are only obsessed with her because they think she's hot. Which is exactly what she wants you to think, seeing as most of the roles she plays are roles of characters that are supposed to be hot. You put on enough makeup, act all sexy, and maybe if you're so lucky as her, people will think you're perfect in every aspect-not just in beauty.
Any conceited being can be slutty.

TWOWS, Suicide Squad... She may seem humble but her actions and acting show her true self.

92 Aisha Tyler Aisha Tyler Aisha Tyler is an American talk show host, actress, comedian, author, producer, writer, and director.

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!

95 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

96 Julianne Moore Julianne Moore

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.

97 Kirsten Dunst Kirsten Dunst Kirsten Caroline Dunst is an American actress, singer and model. She made her film debut in Woody Allen's short film Oedipus Wrecks for the anthology film New York Stories.

The most forced, unbelievable performances ever. She made an otherwise good movie almost unwatchable: "All Good Things. " Watch it for Ryan Gosling, try to ignore her, and you might actually like the film.

Can't act and is definitely over rated on all counts. Should consider another career choice

She tries. She takes risks. Not my favorite actress. She's all right. Great boobs.

She was fine as a kid in Little Women and Jumanji. But that's just my opinion.

98 Robert Redford Robert Redford Charles Robert Redford Jr., known professionally as Robert Redford, is an American actor, director, producer, businessman, environmentalist, and philanthropist.

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 - ChatonNoir

100 Russell Crowe

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.

Can I buy a vowel? Like an "e" to put at the end of his last name, so it's spelled right?

He is one of those actors (Along with Tom Cruise, and Matthew M) that if I see them listed in a movie I won't go see it.
