101 Daniel Day-Lewis Daniel Day-Lewis Sir Daniel Michael Blake Day-Lewis is an English actor. He holds both British and Irish citizenship. He has won 3 Academy Awards for Best Actor for My Left Foot, There Will be Blood, and Lincoln.

Possibly the greatest actor of our times without a doubt.

Not a great actor at all, he just is a weirdo trying to give a hyped pompous interpretation, thinking himself the greatest/ Falls into the same category as Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp, George Clooney and those others that aren't really actors, just disgusting individuals who believe they're the greatest thing on Earth.

Great actor BUT not greatest

Deserves the number 1 spot - Opium_Den

102 Frances McDormand

Incredible actress. One of my favorites. Almost Famous, Fargo, Laurel Canyon, she's so awesome. I can watch her in anything.

Now this lady is damn fine actress and not given enough credit for her abilities.
I am sure being married to a Coen brother (s) is not an easy role given their collective brilliance

Does she even have to do anything to prepare for her roles? I don't see much "acting" going on with her. Yeah... She had a Midwestern accent in Fargo and scored an Oscar for it. I fail to see any real talent here. Wildly overrated.

103 Elisha Cuthbert Elisha Cuthbert Elisha Ann Cuthbert is a Canadian actress and model. She became known for playing Kim Bauer in the series 24, Danielle in the teen comedy film The Girl Next Door, and Carly Jones in the 2005 remake of House of Wax.

RIDICULOUSLY BAD. Don't SEE HOW PEOPLE THINK SHES HOT EITHER. ALL SHE DOES IS TAKE HER CLOTHES OFF AN LOOK ANNOYED A LOT.

Great actress, but she hasn't been in any movies recently. The Girl Next Door is probably one of my all time favorite movies of the 21st century!

I would love to see her in a high quality T.V. series on Netflix or HBO like revenge, bloodline etc. I think she would be perfect for a T.V. series with a real good script. - ChatonNoir

104 Shahrukh Khan Shahrukh Khan

I hope he knows how to swim.

Too much overrated actor I have ever seen

Voted over aamir and amitabh in some polls. Laugh out loud!
Overrated in this case is an understatement.

Looking dashing...

105 Jaden Smith Jaden Smith

If his dad wasn't Will Smith, he wouldn't have an acting career.

After Earth was cringe-worthy.

Who even is jaden smith? He can't act and the only reason he is famous is that his dad is cool.

What the heck he was so cool in karate kid him and Jackie Chan totelly kicked ass together on set he is so cool

106 Andy Garcia Andy Garcia Andrés Arturo García Menéndez, professionally known as Andy García, is a Cuban American actor and director.

Gorgeous powerful actor with commanding presence

Amazing and wonderful leading man who never fails to command your attention as he lights up the screen

He was great in supporting roles such as the untouchables and black rain but he just can't hold his own as a lead. He's very stale when he's not cocky. -

107 Katherine Heigl Katherine Heigl

Great comedic and ironic actress. Actually very brilliant.

Gorgeous, sharp and funny. Love her so much.

Not necessarily overrated, but she's a terrible actress! She's not good in acting at all and she needs more improvement just to get things done. - sdravenson

I did liked her but when the truth about her ( annoying personality, stuck up attitude, don't care a bit for her fans... ) came out, for some reason I started to dislike her.

109 Bill Murray Bill Murray William James "Bill" Murray is an American actor, comedian, and writer. He first gained exposure on Saturday Night Live, for which he earned his first Emmy Award and later went on to star in comedy films, including Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Scrooged, What ...read more.

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.

110 Wesley Snipes Wesley Snipes

Gorgeous charismatic wonderful actor

Beautiful as hell and boy can he act

What an amazing actor. Could light up any screen

I absolutely love this guy. Gorgeous and talented. Great combo.

111 Jessica Biel Jessica Biel

Not the best actress in the world but certainly not the worst either ( lots of actresses on this list are by far less talented ). As a matter of fact, I think she's a really good actress in action movies ( " Blade 3 ", " Total recall ", " Stealth " ) and also in comedies ( " I know pronounce you Chuck & larry ", " Happy New year " ). It's only in more serious and dramatic roles where she's not that " Always " good. If she works to improve her dramatic acting skills she might be becoming a really good actress. She certainly got the looks ( one of the most perfect bodies in Hollywood ) to be seen on the big screen.

Even if she is very beautiful, she is not a good actress.
The only role for which she was known is the one in seven heavens and god knows how much that role sucks!

I would love to see her in a silent nude movie. That's about it. She is so painfully bad I get frustrated watching her. She barely seems to try and has a vacant look in her eyes. I literally won't watch films with her in them and dammit she's in the Hitchcock movie I want to see! Oh choices, choices.

Incredible body. Gorgeous face. Bad awful actress. She needs to quit now.

112 Richard Gere Richard Gere

Richard Gere is the whole reason I went searching for this list. I had just watched Primal Fear because I had remembered it as being a great movie... I was wrong. Laura Linney and Richard Gere ruined this movie. Richard Gere is a smug poor actor who thinks he is better than he is.

I guess what made this movie great to me 11 years ago was Edward Nortons performance. Otherwise this movie was garbage.

This guy is in my opinion the 1980's version of Brad Pitt. A pretty boy actor who does every role the exact same way and depends on his looks to get roles. Watch Pretty Woman, The Mothman Prophecies, and Yanks. The characters are interchangeable. No range at all. The only actor worse than him is Warren Beatty...

I just watched my first Richard Gere movie. How did this actor ever get to be popular? He was not convincing in the role (Mothman Prophecies), and did not bring credibility to the premise of the movie. I will not look for more movies with Richard in a lead role.

He was actually a very good actor in the 80's. " An officer and a gentleman ", " Days of heaven ", " American gigolo ", " No mercy "... After the 80's his choises in good movies became more and more doubtful wich didn't made his acting skills looking good.

His face is like a stone. Wouldn't change if he was banged by a gorilla

Same facial expressions. Not impressed by his acting.

114 Jennifer Garner Jennifer Garner Jennifer Anne Garner is an American actress and film producer. She made her film debut in the comedy Dude, Where's My Car.

I find her roes sweet and endearing. She clearly has depth of character and a lot of soul.

She's such a great and amazing actress. I simply love her and am so grateful.

Those lips should be sucking algae off dirty aquarium walls. What kind of idiot pays to ruin her face like that when the money would be better spent on those teeth that could eat corn on the con through slicker fence? I can't watch movies with her because of the weird suction device on an otherwise decent face-creeps me out entirely. And why does she want her picture taken so much? Freakish narcissist!

She would be good if she ever got to play someone besides the 'mom" character.

115 Mohanlal Mohanlal Mohanlal Viswanathan Nair, better known as Mohanlal, is an Indian actor, producer and occasional singer best known for his work in Malayalam films .

How can a guy with 50% body fat be called a hero in Indian cinema? These guys have absolutely no shape, even if you consider round as a shape. To make things better, they overact, too much to handle...
He should not even be on the bottom... Probably should be in the top 10 overrated actors in Indian Cinema

If you judge an actor by the amount of body fat he/she possesses, that itself says tonnes about what you consider "acting". Go watch some good cinema first, moron. - gaali121

WHO THE HELL IS HE? WHAT IS HE DOING HERE? This is about Hollywood actors.. God this Indian Bollywood thing is just too much.. Poking their fat noses everywhere.

116 Vilma Santos

Her career started going downhill after the Flintstones.

Always shouts when acting. Over acting as if there is no tomorrow!

Saw some of Vilma's films, she delivered an over acting pieces.

Seriously a second rate! She likes to buy her acting awards. Way over rated!

117 Eva Longoria Parker Eva Longoria Parker

Pretty face, emaciated body, and very little acting talent.

Gorgeous. Love love love her

She has to improve her dramatic roles ( sometimes she's overacting in that matter ) but in general she's not a bad actress. Just because she is popular doesn't mean that she is overrated. Very beautiful by the way.

Can't type busy puking

118 Salman Khan Salman Khan

NO ONE! I SERIOUSLY MEAN NO ONE! CAN BE EVEN BE A BIT OVERRATED THAN THIS MAN. LET GO ACTING THIS MAN JUST DOES NOT EVEN KNOW TO SMILE. A FAT OLD MAN STILL ACTING IF HE IS A TEENAGER.

This terrorist uncle should kill himself

He should be at the number 1 spot.

Sweet, happy and bad...the best

119 Glenn Close Glenn Close Glenn Close is an American actress, singer and film producer. With an acting career spanning over 40 years, she has been consistently acclaimed for her versatility and is widely regarded as one of the finest actresses of her generation.

One of the most underrated actresses ever are you kidding putting her on this list?

No one compares to this phenomenon.

The best there is.

Overrated? Glenn Close is a fookin legend, and a sorely underrated one at that! - gaali121

She is not that great an actress, she just got lucky. Plus, her face looks like a dump truck ran into it.
