Top Ten Most Overrated Actresses of Today

The Top Ten

1 Kristen Stewart Kristen Stewart Kristen Jaymes Stewart is an American actress. Born into a film-oriented family, Stewart began her acting career in 1999 with uncredited roles and a minor character appearance in several films before gaining prominence in 2002 for playing Jodie Foster's daughter in the thriller Panic Room, which garnered more.

No one thinks she's a great actress. I think the overwhelming majority of people are just wondering when she will finally go away.

A terrible actress, but Meryl Streep, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Uma Thurman, Penelope Cruz, and Emma Watson are all good actresses.

I was beyond surprized to see her become the new face of the Chanel...why, why, why?

2 Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Shrader Lawrence is an American actress. Lawrence began her career in television, playing her first major role as a main cast member on the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.

Unconvincing. Her emotions seems suppressed, for example I don't think she can express believable emotions with her face. There seems to be a serious lack of depth.

Still young and beautiful though, but extremely overrated.

She's okay. Okay does not equate to great or award winning. Neither are most of these women on the list. She's pretty as are most of the "actresses" on this list. Apparently, Hollywood thinks pretty means talented. It's refreshing to watch average looking actor's from British films who are actually fantastic.

She's deserves to be number 1 not 2. Kristen is overrated, but a LOT of people know that. While this blonde actress here, people just fall over her rude humor. And even dare to say that she's the best actress of this generation. So, for me, she's the most overrated actress of today

There is just one role she can act more or less: itÂ's the tough fighter from hunger games (not the emotionally parts there)
With out it, there is nothing but her ignorance that she is so normal and stayed on the ground. And thatÂ's only because she doesnÂ't thinks about what sheÂ's doing, about the follows of her actions, that she is a role model, that a actor has to renounce some thing not only at her personal live but also while acting (at X-man the refused to sit at the mask for some hours for mysticÂ's blue form, some one else had to play these scenes)
After all she is too conceited now to try to really get into a role, immune for criticis and so mutch overhyped for her ''I'm so normal'' interviews
And if you thing about it, that the is so ignorant, arrogant towards other actors and immune for critics is one of the most, well, not stayed on the ground things at all

3 Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie

Angelina is running out of fame because she playing more cheap movies that people can't stand! The movie "The Tourest" is the worst so far during her career! Also, why is Megan Fox doing on the list? She didn't do nothing wrong!

Ghastly, actually resembles La Muerte nowadays. Never saw her as "beautiful" either, looks too much like her father. Have a very good friend who used to work as a production assistant back in the day in two of her movies and she describes her as "certifiable" and "phony". I believe her. No wonder she won an Oscar, she was playing herself.

Angelina Jolie has never done a good job acting in anything. She does a stupid smirk after she thinks she's delivered a line well, that ruins the line. She is awful.

OVERrated with a Capital O. The perfect cure for constipation; That face always manages to scare the crap out of me. Her 65 lbs frame is also horrendous.

4 Anna Kendrick Anna Kendrick Anna Kendrick is an American actress and singer. She began her career as a child actor in theater productions.

Her acting is so-so, its not all that great in my opinion. She is so cringe worthy and every time I watch Pitch Perfect, I feel like puking. Her singing is overrated too. Okay body. Ugly face. And sure, you might say " well, it's the inside that matters", but does she have a good personality? No, I don't think so. She's rude (even to her fan) and tries so hard to be funny. She just really annoys me. And I don't like her acting.

Her voice and her smile are still giving me nightmares. Worst actress in history for sure. And how about the way she's laughing? I can't really understand how she manages to get main parts next to so accomplished actors? It's a disaster for them and for the directors, too.

I'm sure 98% of her fans are under 25 years old. More experienced movie goers can see the obvious lack of acting talent in this actress. If Hollywood is hurting so bad to fill a role to hire Anna Kendrick, I beg of you, don't give her a "crying" scene.

The absolute worst actress. Her 12-year-old body frame and toothpick legs are far more suitable to a childrens role than any young woman's role available. Why they are pairing her up with experienced actors is evident: they're looking for a demographic of tweeners. LOL. What she calls acting is licking her lips or slurping a milkshake. The movies she does have been brought down a dozen notches at least. Leading actors should put their foot down when it comes to casting THIS person who believes herself to be an actress. Not. Thank goodness for fast-forward!

5 Salma Hayek Salma Hayek Salma Hayek is a Mexican-American film actress, producer and former model. She began her career in Mexico starring in the telenovela Teresa and starred in the film El CallejĂłn de los Milagros for which she was nominated for an Ariel Award.

Average looking, terrible actress & very arrogant. She' s the worst of all.

How did she even get her roles with that awful acting and manly face?

These commenters are calling her UGLY? - 445956

Looks like a transgender man.

6 Emma Watson Emma Watson Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson is a British actress, model, and activist. Born in Paris and brought up in Oxfordshire, Watson attended the Dragon School as a child and trained as an actress at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts.

Her acting is too over the top and makes it painful to watch anything on the big screen. Fine, forgiven whilst she was a child in Harry Potter but unfortunately she's not improved one bit. Sure, as a person she seems lovely but as an actress, she has a VERY long way to go - no depth, no individual character. The speeches she makes seem very rehearsed, like a monologue in a play. So sad to see they cast her as Belle.

She's mastered the art of eyebrow acting. She's a pretty girl (saw her at the premiere for the last Harry Potter) but could use a bit more skill and polishing up when it comes to acting. That said for my part I prefer to watch Emma any day over that Luis Miguel/BoJack Horseman looking hybrid Daisy Ridley.

I am sorry for saying this but Emma Watson is so terribly overrated! Her face expression consist in arching her eyebrows, she's as bad as Kristen Stewart. She has two good movies though, Harry Potter 1st and 2nd movies...

She is very motivated kind generous caring positive and hard working

7 Leighton Meester Leighton Meester Leighton Marissa Meester is an American actress, singer and model. She is mostly known for her starring role as Blair Waldorf in the drama series Gossip Girl.

Wish she was really overrated. Fiancé and I saw her live when she was touring to promote her equally underrated album Heartstrings a few years back and she has great voice and is so gorgeous. That skin. Jealous. He joked that he’d leave me for her if given a free pass,
I said he’d have to fight me for that honor. Would rather see her be everywhere and in all magazine covers instead of Mrs. Ryan Reynolds Blake Lively.

8 Amy Adams Amy Adams Amy Lou Adams is an American actress and singer. She is the recipient of two Golden Globe Awards, and has received five nominations each from the Academy Award and BAFTA Award ceremonies.

Can't stand this extremely average woman and her brand of whisper acting. Have heard that she and Isla Fisher are often mistaken for one another and that's a head scratcher because Isla is actually quite pretty and feminine looking unlike Amy LOU Adams Apple.

She's gotten worse as her fame has grown. She's the worst Lois Lane ever.

As annoying as her fans. The Academy owes her jack.

I simply cannot relate to Amy Adams as an actress. She reminds me of an uppity extra on Gossip Girl.

9 Zooey Deschanel Zooey Deschanel

She plays the same character all the time.

Typecast always

10 Anne Hathaway Anne Hathaway Anne Jacqueline Hathaway is an American actress and singer. Born in Brooklyn, New York and brought up in Millburn, New Jersey, Hathaway was inspired to act by her mother and as a high school student, was nominated for the Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star Award for Best Performance by a High School Actress more.

She's annoying.

The Contenders

11 Cate Blanchett Cate Blanchett

She always seems to be playing an affected woman who was raised with a silver spoon in her mouth. No vulnerability, no real feeling or emotion. Fairly transparent mimicry of feelings/emotions.

Cate Blanchett is ridiculously overrated. She over acts in every film. It's embarrassing. I don't understand it when people praise her acting. It's so unnatural and forced like she's focused on an award rather than the character. Hopeless.

Don't understand the heaps of praise she receives for her performances that are not very good at all.

Lady? Seriously Looks more like a Dude. Third rate Judy Davis wannabe (her mannerisms and attitude in the Streetcar Named Desire rip-off Blue Jasmine is Pure True Australian Treasure Judy Davis) No surprise a certain no-taste demographic twitter Stan Group views her/him as their acting and beauty goddess. Very questionable taste. Even more annoying and hypocritical that those nimrods want to forcibly cram this tranny down everyone’s throat while bringing down other women in the same sentence.

12 Meryl Streep Meryl Streep Mary Louise "Meryl" Streep is an American actress. Cited in the media as the "best actress of her generation", Streep is particularly known for her versatility in her roles, transformation into the characters she plays, and her accent adaptation.

Best actress ever I doubt anyone that says she is overrated has not seen all her work.

It's almost becoming a obsession to some people to praise her like she's some kind of goddess. Every time she moves or speak before a camera is perceived as work of genius. People should stop to praise her because I saw movies of her where her stage partner really stands out instead of her ( Amy Adams in "Julie & Julia ", " Doubt " ), movies where she's bad and overacting (" The deer hunter" ) and many movies where she's so boring to watch ( one of the ugliest actresses of all time ). It's not because a majority thinks she's the best that it means that it is true. THE MOST OVERRATED ACTRESS of all time.

Meryl Streep is a good actress, just not as great as everyone seems to think. She's made bad movies and delivered wretched performances. She's not infallible. She just good.

A good actress, but she is the the Oscars what Megan Fox is to Michael Bay. - 445956

13 Cameron Diaz Cameron Diaz

Her acting skills aren't the greatest and I will never understand why anyone would find her physically attractive nowadays. What, just because she has blonde hair? Give me a break, guys.

14 Caity Lotz

I saw her in Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow...probably the weakest actor in the whole universe. But everyone loves her.

15 Emily Bett Rickards
16 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Cyrus is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Miley Cyrus's voice is contralto. She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus also starred in the show.

The only reason she ever gets a movie part is because she is extremely famous. That's all she is, something to make money off of. Which is funny, considering that she isn't very pretty.

17 Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) is an American actress, model, and singer. She made her film debut in North. more.

Horrible unbelievable actress with a sexy face. A sexy face but a thick body.. Just look at the legs and butt while she's in a bikini and her future is clear.

Overrated for everything. Overrated for her curvy body as in fact she's a fat girl in thight clothes to cover that up. Overrated for her beauty but people should take a real look at her when she's not putting tons of make-up. Overrated for her talent when in fact she's Always playing the same way without change. The only fact why she still get so many publicity is because she's Jewish and that's Always a pluspoint in Hollywood whether you got talent or not. So overrated that the rank of her on this list is way too underrated.

WORST ACTRESS EVER! The only reason why she's "famous" is because of her "beautiful" looks!

Terrible attitude she has...

They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from more.

She should stick to what she's good at - singing. - observer67

Shes not an actress point blank

She is an AMAZING singer, but as an actress, she sucks.

Without tons of makeup, airbrushing and photoshop she's ugly. She can't act so I don't even know what she's doing on this list.
She's much better off singing songs that people have written for her and flailing her arms around on stange. Nope, she can't dance either.

19 Megan Fox Megan Fox Megan Denise Fox is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the Hope & Faith television sitcom.

Yes, she is beautiful but is it the reason to call her an actress?
Megan is the most stupid actress nowadays. Her interviews are ridiculous!
Her acting is horrible too - no emotions, no feelings, no mimic. Like Robot - Alexandr

the only reason transformers is a good movie is because shes in it shes hot thats the only reason people like her. yes she is HOT though - 7beach77

She'd make an excellent playmate centerfold but nothing else.

can't act

20 Jennifer Aniston Jennifer Aniston Jennifer Joanna Aniston is an American actress, producer, and businesswoman. The daughter of Greek actor John Aniston and American actress Nancy Dow, Aniston gained worldwide recognition for portraying Rachel Green on the popular television sitcom Friends, a role which earned her a Primetime Emmy Award, more.

You don't need much talent playing dumb characters in cheesy comedy films. She isn't serious actress and never will be - Magnolia

If that woman had never married Brad Pitt, she would have faded away along with the rest of her "Friends".

She's a terrible actress. None of her movies have done well. I think she played herself in Friends and that just doesn't fly in every movie role.

She is literally the same character in all of her movies.

21 Natalie Portman Natalie Portman Natalie Portman is an actress, film producer and film director with dual American and Israeli citizenship.

Pompous, self righteous and thinks she is gods gift

22 Uma Thurman Uma Thurman Uma Karuna Thurman is an American actress and model. She has performed in leading roles in a variety of films, ranging from romantic comedies and dramas to science fiction and action movies.
23 Keira Knightley Keira Knightley Keira Christina Knightley is an English actress. She began acting as a child on television and made her film debut in 1995. She had a supporting role as Sabé in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and her first significant role came in the psychological horror film The Hole.
24 Penélope Cruz

She's not a bad actress. Her only flaw to make it big in Hollywood is her accent ( unless she's playing stereotype roles ). But when you see her movies she made in Spain she's actually a very talented actress.

Same expressions and acting style in everything. I don't feel she is even that good looking!

25 Kathy Bates Kathy Bates Kathleen Doyle "Kathy" Bates is an American actress. She began her career on the stage, and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Play in 1983 for her performance in 'night, Mother.

Extremely overrated

26 Nora Aunor
27 Zoe Saldana Zoe Saldana
28 Tilda Swinton Tilda Swinton Katherine Matilda "Tilda" Swinton of Kimmerghame is an Anglo-Scottish actress, performance artist, model, and fashion muse, known for both arthouse and mainstream films.

All she can manage is sounding posh. Her heart seems to be in be right place and I'm sure she tries to be convincing but she always just comes across as Tilda. Bless her.

29 Sarah Jessica Parker Sarah Jessica Parker Sarah Jessica Parker is an American actress, producer, and designer. She is best known for her leading role as Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO television series Sex and the City.

Sarah Jessica Parker is the most overrated actress in the 15th century, and yes, I did saw 15th. Because she is a walking dinosaur. Sex and the city was okay but the movies were just a contest to see how many penises you can put in one movie without it becoming a porno.

Sex and the city was okay? Are you serious? A stupid show about three ugly yuppies who takes their clothes off more than prostitutes. If you call that acting,than you must have a poor taste in recognize talent.

Can't stand her horseface

30 Gwyneth Paltrow Gwyneth Paltrow

World's most arrogant actress! Honestly, how many rich kids from talented parents do we have to tolerate!

She is stiff as a board on film. Horrible actress and terrible person.

I agree! Worst of all is that she really thinks we should listen to her advice how to live our lives. She thinks she's the best and the rest is beneath her.
Typical spoiled rich kids attitude. Typical Jewish snob with an elitair attitude.

31 Emma Stone Emma Stone Emily Jean "Emma" Stone is an American actress. One of the world's highest-paid actresses, she has won the Academy Award Best Actress Award, been nominated for two British Academy Film Awards and two Golden Globe Awards, and has won two Screen Actors Guild Awards.
32 Holly Hunter
33 Kate Hudson Kate Hudson
34 Jennifer Love Hewitt Jennifer Love Hewitt

She's not really overrated and she's not a bad actress either. We're talking about their acting abbilities here and I don't think you can only Judge for their maybe overrated private lives. In this case the pregnancy of Jennifer Love Hewitt. After all she still remains a woman, and a pregnancy is a important part of a woman's life.

She really deserves to be " overrated ". Meaning, that this actress is very talented. She can play every role possible. The more I see her on T.V., cinemas, magazines, the better it is! People should stop hating her for ridiculous reasons ( when she was pregnant ). Did you know she stopped her twitter because of you haters who even don't know this woman or ever met her. Think about it!

What have you people against this woman? Jennifer Love Hewitt is one of the most joyful, adorable likable actresses of the movie / T.V. industry.

Hated seeing her everywhere in the '90s, hate that she's now a main cast member on what had been one of my favorite shows, don't give a crap about her "magical" pregnancy. Why can't she just fade away already?

35 Emma Roberts Emma Roberts Emma Rose Roberts is an American actress and singer. After small roles in films such as Blow, she rose to prominence with her role as Addie Singer in the Nickelodeon television series Unfabulous, for which she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award and six Young Artist Awards.

No way! Emma Roberts is very talented and certainly not overrated. Was nominated several times in her teens but as an adult she rarely gets credits or nominations for her acting skills. One of the best today's new generation actresses. Doesn't belong here!
