Top 10 Worst Acting Performances of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Arnold Schwarzenegger - Batman and Robin

Actually, it's so bad it's good! It pains me to say this, but he's actually the only enjoyable thing in the movie.

Arnold Schwarzenegger deserves better than a few ice puns!

2 John Stockwell - Dangerously Close (1986)

John Stockwell is unconvincing in a villainous role, coming off as forced.

3 John Travolta - Battlefield Earth

John Travolta can be a good actor, but in this movie, he is awful, just awful. "When you were learning to spell your name, I was being trained to conquer galaxies." Worst acting.

Why is Zac Efron number one? He wasn't even a little bad in that movie. Now, this would definitely get the top spot from me.

4 Adam Sandler - Jack and Jill

Adam Sandler acts poorly in all of his films!

5 Dev Patel - The Last Airbender

They were all bad, but that guy who played Aang was far worse. At least Patel had a few less-horrendous lines. That Aang kid never got another part in anything.

Everybody in this film was terrible. The only exception is probably the actor who played Iroh.

6 Robert De Niro - The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle

I loved him in Goodfellas and Raging Bull, but why in the world would he even consider doing such a role like this?

De Niro's movie career really went from good to bad to worst.

Terrible. Just the worst De Niro performance ever.

7 Nicolas Cage - The Wicker Man

No, not the bees! Not the bees! Ah! They're in my eyes! My eyes! Argh!

Agreed. But it's so funny that it gets a pass.

8 Elizabeth Berkley - Showgirls

At least you got to see our favorite Saved by the Bell girl unleash her sexy side.

9 Jake Lloyd - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
10 Bob Hoskins - Super Mario Bros.

Even Hoskins stated that he hated this performance.

The Contenders
11 Christopher Walken - The Country Bears

Why did the world let this movie exist? I think this is proof that God is dead.

Walken's worst performance ever.

12 Mariah Carey - Glitter
13 Ahmed Best - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
14 Zac Efron - High School Musical

Oh man, Zac's attitude in this movie! It just bugs me to the point of disgust. But I actually have a bigger gripe - after this movie, a lot of girls seemed to fall in love with him. A Justin Bieber-related problem?

15 Tom Green - Freddy Got Fingered

The absolute best worst acting performance of all time. "We can live like kings!"

16 Halle Berry - Catwoman
17 Tommy Wiseau - The Room

The guy directed, produced, and performed in "The Room" and made possibly the most infamous movie of all time. It's so bad that it's fun to watch how bad it is. Seriously, just YouTube it and watch his completely off timing and pronunciation of sentences in the English language.

This is the worst acting performance ever. Period.

18 Sandra Bullock - All About Steve

I think this proves that Sandra Bullock is so overrated.

19 Sylvester Stallone - Spy Kids 3-D
20 Marlon Wayans - White Chicks

Any Wayans brother can be added to this category. Terrible performances in terrible movies!

21 Hayden Christensen - Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
22 Orlando Bloom - Black Hawk Down

His voice was all over the place. I didn't know whether he was American or English. The worst acting performance. All the acting in this movie is bad, except for Josh Hartnett.

I love how he tries to do an American accent. He should never act in an American movie unless he is playing an Englishman. He definitely messed up his role.

Worst performance ever. I couldn't watch this movie because the bad acting threw me off.

23 Kevin Costner - Waterworld
24 Mike Myers - The Love Guru
25 Jared Leto - Suicide Squad
