Well Paris is dumber then a rock! She has no talent at all.. She just knows how top be in the news!

Miley should be #1 on this list. She is terrible! Johnny Depp shouldn't be anywhere near this list. He is the my favorite actor. The man can play any role. He is amazing!

Johnny Depp? Are you crazy? Captain Jack Sparrow is one of the best I've ever seen... Whereas miley cyrus is a complete contrast of johnny depp!

Miley... Please, for your and the world's sake... STOP ACTING! And get a life! You have no talent and you're like 19 and your greatest fans are like 3 years. WHY IS JOHNNY DEPP IN THIS LIST? And Miley, get a face.

Sorry but Miley Cyrus couldn't act her own self. I have tried to figure out what people see in her, but I cannot find anything more than ordinary, egotistical, not very bright; she seems to me to be one of those who just get a great manager and tells the world *I'm great, looky at me*, and so the world does. She couldn't hold a more fake smile either. She totally rides on her looks and name. - Bitchiecupcake

Most overrated actress ever. She brags about never having any acting lessons. Guess what? It shows! She needs to get some but I doubt if they will ever help her horrible acting even!

Its true and now she is married to Robert she is the worst person in the whole universe

She DESTROYED twilight! If I were Stephanie Meyer I would be disgusted that that personality-less, blank palette face got to play Bella

Talking about a poker face... She made twilight a challenge to watch. I can't even think that they still get her jobs in other movies...

She's got the thought capacity of a guppy. Ask her to show deep emotion at the same time as reciting a line from the script - now watch her start to seize and foam at the mouth as she tries to do so.

Not a fan of Twilight but my wife is a huge fan of it. So we watched the first movie and my wife actually apologized to me for making me sit through that. I told her that there's no apologizing in the world that could erase from my mind the fact that I'd just seen an entire movie with a 2"x4" cast as female lead.

She actually has got LESS acting prowess than Hayden Christensen! I did not think that was possible.

5 Steven Seagal Steven Seagal Steven Frederic Seagal is an American actor, film producer, screenwriter, film director, martial artist, Aikido instructor, musician, reserve deputy sheriff and entrepreneur.

Seagal is an actor? REALLY?!
Whatever. When I watch his movies it just doesn't seem like acting at all...
Always the same tough guy character...
BORING! - Condotierre

Even though Seagal can act, it's just the same thing over and over. - Nick-brick8

Steven Seagal has done way too many movies. And their all the same. Steven Seagal is stuck in the early 90's late 80's.

I don't really think that an explanation is needed.

6 Adam Sandler Adam Sandler Adam Richard Sandler is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and film producer. After becoming a Saturday Night Live cast member, Sandler went on to star in many Hollywood feature films that combined have grossed over $2 billion at the box office.

I used to think he was funny, but that was because I was in middle school. Now I think he's nothing more than a complete waste of time and money.

Seriously, how did this guy even get popular? I can understand why but in all reality, he doesn't deserve it. You know why? Because he's just another juvenile delinquent who has a bad habit of think he's funnier than we are. Not only does his films rely on the same damn formula, but they're just painful and unpleasant to watch. Sure he's made a few good movies (Hotel Transylvania and The Wedding Singer) but those are very rare and he usually comes out with a great big pile of crap. Even back in the 90s he still had some horrible movies.

I'm glad to see this guy's popularity is finally declining. I'm glad to see his fans have finally grown up and went on to find more better things than his bad taste excuses for comedies. If you're wack, you're not gonna last forever. And Adam Sandler is wack. He's gonna go in the same direction ...more

I used to think he's funny but now... I don't know what the hell I saw on this guy back in my teenage years!

He is extremely juvenile which can be funny at times but that's what most of his movies consist of. Most of his humor relies on farting, pooping, and hitting on girls. There's no subtlety in his humor and he tries way too hard to be funny that it's just painful to watch. It just baffles my mind how he's been able to grab the attention of audiences for so damn long and even have his hand and footprints on the cement walk of the TLC Chinese Theater.

It just pays to be stupid I guess.

@visitor-It doesn't matter. The point is that Adam Sandler is overrated and not as good as everyone says about him.

Adam Sandler is hated for good reason, he makes terrible jokes that you swore that a money with a typewriter came up with it. Are people even laughing at him? They must be, how else would he be popular? Adam Sandler used to be just hit and miss in the 90's though, even if you didn't get his jokes you still felt like he's trying. Adam Sandler now though, you would believe that he's a humanoid robot trying to be a human but failing horribly. Every movie he's in, it seems like he's the same character, not the character he's supposed to be playing. This makes every movie he's in called a "Sandler film" even though he's not even the director, you have to call that bad acting. The plots on his movies are horrible too, but this is just about Adam Sandler, so I won't get in to that. All in all, Adam Sandler should just stop, he's made enough money for a living and he should know by now that he's not going to get any better. - PinataonSugar

It's nearly impossible to watch him attempt to act without cringing. - CharismaticKat

7 Tommy Wiseau Tommy Wiseau Thomas Wiseau is a European-American actor and filmmaker. He wrote, produced, directed, and starred in the 2003 film The Room, which has been described by many critics as one of the worst movies ever made and has gained cult film status.

Oh Hai top tens. It's good, ha.

Seriously, this guy makes those people from twilight look like Humphrey Bogart. Granted he's only done 1 movie, and it was a self funded project, but come on, surely he must have thought to have taken acting lessons first?

But, as the "great" man would say, Don't worry about it.

The real number one.

His acting was so bad in "The Room" that it actually made it a movie kind of worth watching just because of how hilariously bad it is. He claims that he purposely made the movie like that, but I think that's BS, it was just bad acting. - Greedo

Conspiracy theories. - Luckys

Yes, Keanu Reeves. No diversity, same roles... Spewed out over and over. Plays a pretty good stoner/surfer though. But, when you put him in Dracula, with Gary Oldman, and he butchers an English accent that bad... No excuses. I mean, you can't say that he hasn't tried, but a piece of plywood could play Neo. Worst fims,

9 Pauly Shore Pauly Shore

If you've seen him once you've seen him one thousand times. He acts the same way in every scene and it gets old very quick. What people find entertaining about him escapes me.

Should be #1 on this list

Pauly Shore is awful and is a terrible comedian. A friend of mine a comedian was doing comedy at a place with Pauly Shore. When both of them were waiting to go up, shore asked to leave the room. My friend got his notebook of jokes and was about to exit the room when shore told him to leave the notebook. Shore wanted to steal his jokes, that ahole.

I was going to go with Kristen Stewart but her performance in Personal Shopper was Great. Hayden Christensen's facial expressions are brilliant and emotive, Angelina Jolie was incredible in Maleficent, Tommy Wiseau was so bad it's good, Adam Sandler was good in Punch Drunk Love and Happy Gilmore and Nicolas Cage has been in many great films. This guy, though has never had a good performance- I mean Bio-Dome. Come on! He's so obnoxious and irritating

10 Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen is a Canadian-American actor and producer. He began his career on Canadian television at the age of 13, then diversified into American television in the late 1990s. ...read more.

Hayden Christensen isn't as bad as people make him out to be, and honestly, he didn't come close to winning two Razzies for Worst Actor. Its really not his fault as much as its on the script of the Star Wars Prequel Films. He's relatively decent actually. - CrimsonShark

His facial expression is looking like he's frozen and trying to smile. Can't show emotion. It always looks like he's breaking down, when he tries to. In Star Wars when he looked angry it was like he's a little boy who didn't get his candy. He should work on it.

He is a great actor in Revenge of the Sith...
People just like to hate on literally everything in the prequels. His romance scenes weren't great, but that was mainly because of how bad the dialogue was, I mean, could anyone make dialogue that bad sound realistic? And his facial expressions are always on point, he is a master at looking evil. - owlro188

It's sad, because the Star Wars prequels, except for him, were pretty good. If only they had picked a better actor to play Anakin/Darth Vader. Typically, when you want to have a character who loses his wife and children and turns evil, you want a lot of emotion. Christensen doesn't exactly do that in any of his films.

The Contenders

11 Robert Pattinson Robert Pattinson Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson is an English actor, producer, model, and musician. He started his film career by playing Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a 2005 fantasy film.

Umm really? This guy is one of the douchiest actors out there. He is an incredibly boring actor who needs to seriously consider acting classes

In total agreement with this one! Personally, I believe he should have just remained as Cedric Diggory (what a shame he was killed... But he was far more attractive). I honestly can't stand the actor nor his character in Twilight. I won't even get started on that trash! I actually liked him when I first saw him in Harry Potter: The Goblet of Fire but when he chose to act in Twilight... Worst mistake ever of his acting career. I swore, by the first line he spoke I fell asleep which is only a good ten or fifteen minutes into the entire movie and by the time I woke up the credits were rolling. True story. I mean, he's just bland, not even attractive and not to mention WAY TOO overrated for that small role he plays in Twilight. Sigh, without fan girls, where would these actors be? - SheWhoLovesRamen

He should have been on the top of this list
Twilight remember me?
Come on guys pattinson deserves more votes

He's actually a good actor. Just because he was Edward Cullen (A role which he HATED) doesn't mean he should be defined solely by that role. Ever since Twilight ended, Pattinson decided to simply stick to indie/lesser known films to work out his acting skills. Fortunately enough, those have paid off, with his roles such as Cosmopolitan and Good Time having great acting from Pattinson himself.

Oh yeah, he's going to be Batman in 2021. Hopefully Matt Reeves can actually have Pattinson pull off a better Bruce Wayne than Ben Affleck. - CrimsonShark

I think people have misunderstood this list. It's not a list of "Actors You Hate" it's the "Worst Actors" Zac Efron sucks a lot more than Johnny Depp who isn't actually that bad. Furthermore, Lindsay Lohan would be completely awful if it weren't 4 her role in Mean Girls - TheGreatest

I find her to be very annoying. If you watch her movies she's always playing roles that are tough or just likes to show off her toothpick figure and so on. I still can't believe she has won an oscar for her terrible performance in girl interrupted.

Same facial expression all the time. You got the money and contacts. Take acting lessons for crying out loud. I suppose anyone who's mom or dad are famous actors automatically are actors even if they do not have talent.
Acting school!

She is the worst crappiest, porn star quality actress... Most overrated... Hard to believe she is still allowed to make movies... The industry is losing its shirt on her too.

She's too ugly and overrated. In fact, when I was watching Maleficent, I couldn't even look at her face because her cheekbones are so painfully sharp to look at...I thought that at any moment her cheekbones would poke right out of her face. - RedTheGremlin

This is wrong. JT is awesome. I'm not a big fan of pop but there are still songs that I like by him. Every movie I've seen him in is so awesome. You guys don't know what you're talking about. Black snake moan, social network, two of my favorite movies. Alpha dog. He's awesome and you guys are just jealous. Burn.

He a good actor. I saw many movies with him and I think he portrayed his roles perfectly. It was just awkward seeing him in Friends with benefits because he seems so friendly and cheery.

He was in a movie? I just knew he was in that movie about Troll dolls

15 Taylor Lautner Taylor Lautner

Unlike Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (Who have put as much distance from Twilight as they could and are trying to do better roles), Taylor is basically lost and I don't even know what's he doing nowadays. - CrimsonShark

Was literally the best actor in Twilight out of the main three, unfortunately that means absolutely nothing. He was the only one able to show one genuine emotion and didn't stutter through his lines, but that's because he was Taylor Lautner playing Taylor Lautner and that worked out for the role of Jacob because his personality in real life mostly fits Jacob (Mostly being the operative word because he was not good at portraying anger). But in all his other roles he's not so good. He was good in cuckoo and okay in grown ups, but the reason he works there is that nothing about his performance is supposed to be serious - he was supposed to be over the top cheesy. Right now he's alright on Scream Queens, but that's because he's forgettable - you barely ever know his character's there however it's definitely an improvement from his previous acting because unlike his fellow Twilight actors - he knows he can improve, doesn't think he's the best and stops there. I can weirdly enough actually ...more

Taylor Lautner is truly the worst actor of all time. People only care about his looks and not his acting talents. Abudiction was the worst movie and so was twilight. You could tell he was acting. It was so fake.

How Taylor Lautner is not the run away leader on this list is truly shocking! His acting was so bad in the Twilight movies I could see it in the trailers for the movies without even having to watch them. I watched twenty minutes of one of the movies just to laugh at how bad his acting is. It worked for about ten minutes, but my laughter quickly turned to anger an turned it off after twenty minutes! I could take no more.

Just watch Freddy Got Fingered and tell me this douche mongrel can act. This movie is seriously one of the worst movies I have EVER seen, and I watched The Room. I honestly thought this move was far worse than The Room. For him to be the main actor in this movie is just sad. It could be the worst movie of all time. He should be top 5 material on this list, at least. Also, the list of movies that he has been in is hilariously unimpressive.

The big joke is when they cast her as a beautiful woman. Not!

I don't think she's one of the greatest actresses of all time but I don't think she's one of the worst either.
She has some limits in her acting skills ( every role she plays does has more or less the same style ) and I believe that this actress is just too overrated. She's just an ok actress ( maybe a little more better than certain actresses ) but nothing special. In the looks departement however she's really overrated. They try to tell us that she's some kinda of femme fatale but in reality she's too ugly to be in that category. One of the most overrated actresses, that's for sure but one of the worst actresses, I doubt it. Too many other actresses are way more badly in their acting than she is.

Totally Over-Rated, she's Pretty Woman in all her roles.

This guy is living poof that you don't need talent to make it big. You just need the right people pushing your way for you. I tell you from the first time I saw this guy in Dazed and Confused and I don't mean the Led Zeppelin song. I knew he was going to someday make it really far in Horriblewood. He didn't even need fellow Bostonian Matt Damon helping him get over on everyone cause the executives in Horriblewood were primed waiting for someone like him without a shred of talent that they could mold into a block buster fool like this guy. Everything he does is suspect cause of his lack of talent it just goes to show that old saying is true," It's not who you know it's who you", well you can figure it out. If you actually think this guy can act then I know which one you have been doing also. Well anyway this guy sucks more than Sean Penn's brother did in all his scenes in Super Troopers.

In plenty of horrible movies. He still acts though. The people who signed him never saw Gigli. - booklover1

Doesn't deserve all the bad critics. The ones who are giving him critics are always the ones who comes with the same arguments ( Gigli and Batman ). He did some bad movies ( but not bad acting performances ) but he did a lot of good movies with very outstanding performances. Very talented!

He also pains me to watch. One word. Gigli.

Can she actually close her mouth?

Why isn't Megan Fox exclusively a porn actress? No matter what she's in, she's always grunting and breathing heavily like she's having sex anyway, and people only watch and hire her because she's hotter than hell (even if she's a putrid actor). So what's the difference between her and a porn star? Nothing.

Haters not always gonna hate, but when they do they will kill a fox, cut her pelt off and hang it by the wall of a wooden cabin.

22 Jessica Alba Jessica Alba Jessica Marie Alba is an American actress, model and businesswoman. She has won various awards for her acting, including the Choice Actress Teen Choice Award and Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television, and a Golden Globe nomination for her lead role in the television series Dark Angel.

Come on! She's not the bad actress like the media try to tell us ( once they spread the word it's like suddenly everybody agrees on that ). She was awesome good in the T.V. series " Dark angel " but after that she didn't get many chances to play descent roles because people just cared about her good looks ( and don't tell me that she's ugly ) and didn't care for her acting skills anymore. Saying that she's one of the worst actresses is in my opinion ridiculous because the few good movies she did were actually very well played by her. This proves that when she gets roles in worthy movies she actually got the acting abilities to give a very good performance.

She was only popular because she is slim and pretty, nonsense.

Jessica Alba is only cast to show herself half naked. She is just as bad as Tara Reid, but has a better body so people put up with her. It's shameful because women make of less than a third of speaking roles in Hollywood, and her horrible acting is taking up too much of that low percentage so that people can oogle her breasts. Did people forget that we have models to oggle at, and they don't have to open their mouths?

Beautiful, but horrible actress... I have never seen a mediocre performance of jessica alba... Only horrible and a little less horrible.

What in the hell is brad pitt doing on this list anyway the person who made this list is high, brad pitt is the movie he makes the movie better so what the hell, fix this list and fix it now

Forget his looks, he brings no depth to any character he plays. He fortunately gets offered good films but runs along the well written story lines like a desperate child searching for his identity. He so badly wants to be good but I feel no empathy in his films... There is nothing behind the eyes. Who forgets it's Brad Pitt during the film.. No one. There is no hate here, just a sadness that better actors rarely get the chance to play a juicy role because of the box office Brad

Brad Pitt should be the #1 worst male actor. His acting is unbelievable except for his crazy roles. So, this makes him a one-dimensional actor. I was shocked when he was nominated for an Oscar in 2012. However, as of late, the academy has terrible taste anyways.

Sunglasses on, sunglasses off, sunglasses on, sunglasses off, vomit on my shirt. - Ravergirl

He's a total disaster. I hate CSI and it's mostly cause of him. How can they cast the guy?!

Someone on SFGate brilliantly commented that his is a variation on the William Shatner method of acting.

Simply horrific. Tries to act like a tough guy, which is beyond hilarious. Just awful.

I have nothing but pure contempt for this guy's acting. He is painful and frustrating to watch. I can't imagine being a director trying to get a decent performance out of this guy. Brutal. It's truly amazing and a damn shame, that this guy has made it as an actor.

No one I mean no one is worse then this guy, my favorite comic book ghost rider was ruined by this guy and I can never forgive him for it

I've actually only seen him in the sorcerer's apprentice, but he made a moderately good film not worth watching. I, like, turned it off before twenty minutes because I just couldn't watch cage act like he's the greatest prodigy in the history of the world. And also,

What IS JOHNNY DEPP ON THIS LIST FOR?! All the people that say he is overrated in the comments obviously haven't seen him in absolutely anything. I mean, has anyone here even seen Pirates of the Caribbean? And if Johnny Depp is number 1 on greatest actors, then how can he be No.3 here? Everybody vote for anything below him so that he gets pushed down No.3!

I determine the effectiveness of an actor/actress by determining to what extent do they "trick" me into thinking that I am watching the character they are portraying, rather than an actor portraying a character. Mr. Cage never managed that. Not even close. Perhaps there are worse actors out there, but the fame and material compensation Mr. Cage has received for his "acting" is a stain on western civilization.

Unfunny moron.

Great comedic actor.

Over eating and falling down a lot is his entire acting abilty

Fat stupid guy + thin bitchy wife = I'm still not laughing.

33 Jean-Claude Van Damme Jean-Claude Van Damme Jean-Claude Camille François Van Varenberg, professionally known as Jean-Claude Van Damme and abbreviated as JCVD, is a Belgian actor, martial artist, screenwriter, film producer, and director best known for his martial arts action films.

His movies are fun to watch, and so is his acting... Just not for the right reasons. Regardless he still delivers entertainment.

The best actor in the history of the martial arts movies

Honestly, he sucks. When I see him doing the twine in those crappy movies like only in that position could he train. So overrated.

He's a great martial artist and his movies are quite entertaining, but I couldn't imagine him playing anything that isn't related to action-boom-boom-kick-punch films.

34 Hulk Hogan Hulk Hogan Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and rock bassist.

This guy looks like Kentucky fried chicken humanoid 2.0

HE has to go down as the worst actor on this list. The fact that he thinks he's good and that acting is easy only magnifies my contempt for the guy.

A buffoon who somehow got famous despite being horrible as a wrestler and worse as an actor.

Bad in Suburban Commando, Mr. Nanny, No Holds Barred, and the worst one Santa With Muscles.

Brings every movie he is in to a complete standstill with his hollow, grandstanding, all bark and no bite characterizations that are all one and the same. He is intolerable!

I don't see how he gets any work either and I can see why Hollywood is not doing very well these days. Just look at all the crap it's trying to push out there and finally folks have had enough!

Good actor when the movie fits his " mannerisms ". Otherwise he's very dull and boring to watch.

I Don't know why, I just REALLY hate this guy. Have you seen CONTACT & GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST, I nearly cried he was that bad. - Paolo2thepeople

Got all uppity with a French journalist who dared to say to his face that he didn't like one of his crappy films. The problem with these overpaid, overindulged celebrities is that they can't take the slightest bit of criticism without throwing a prima donna tantrum. - observer67

Worst actor ever.. Always looks same on movies or in real life... Pretentious person

If you want your film to tank, just cast Clooney in a leading role.

I hate you Clooney. You literally ruined batman.

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

She wants to be known for her acting, not her looks. But then, she turns around and just typecasts herself by only accepting roles that glamourize her, play up her looks, make her appear sexy and seductive

People are almost praising her like she's the new Katharine Hepburn. I mean, come on, she's not that good as an actress and she certainly doesn't have the glamour of the actresses of the thirties and forties ( I have read too many times that they're trying to compare her with the glamorous actresses of the past ). Her beauty is too overrated ( she has X-legs when she walks, her lips are too thick and her low voice isn't sexy at all whatever the media are trying to tell us about that ). I don't know how she made it but it's for sure that it has more to do with luck than talent.

Did Hollywood go out for lunch thirty years ago and never come back leaving all these pathetic no talents in charge? Thank god for DVDs of the classics. Pretty but a bland actress? Actress, no. Pretty, debatable. She's not even good enough to be bland.

Pretty but a bland actress
She's overrated and I wish she change expand her range

She has no talent. She has no Personality. Worst actor ever. She should be number 1.

WORST OF THE ABSOLUTE WORST. WHY IS SHE NOT NUMBER 1. STOP GRITTING YOUR TEETH THINKING IT MAKES YOU A BETTER ACTRESS.

She's a horrible actor in shamless, especially being that she's usually in scenes with Jeremey who's a great actor she looks even worse. Never even heard of her until she joined the show.

An overrated, over the top bore.

43 Sean Penn Sean Penn Sean Justin Penn is an American actor, filmmaker, and political activist. He has won two Academy Awards, for his roles in the mystery drama Mystic River and the biopic Milk.

This guy doesn't act at all. His method if you can call it that is just to let his inner self out. Like in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. He just does what he does best and that is be himself. His character Jeff Spicoli had Ray Walston wishing it was 1963 and back on My Favorite Martian with another no acting guy named Bill. If you have ever seen him in the movie Colors just go to the end and watch him try and tell the Robert Duvall joke he has to stutter his way through as he reverts back to himself like he is Jeff Spicoli again. This is him just being himself once again. Just ask Madonna why she left him. He actually tied her up and forced her to was Fast Times at Ridgemont High over and over till she had no choice but end the insanity. Once again he was just being his own self as he does over and over like when he appeared at the podium for the Kennedy Center Honors for some famous Beatles. The real Sean Penn comes out once again. It was like watching Jeff Spicoli all over again. I ...more

Really? Sean penn is a bad actor?
I hope this is a joke. Have you seen dead man walking?

Just look at the movie " Gangsters squad ". If you think that he's a bad actor in it you don't know what you're saying. Played so many diverse roles in a convincing way that it's ridiculous to put him on a list of worst actors.

Sean Penn can't act? Surely, you jest. He is one of the best, if not THE best, actor of his generation. Have you seen Mystic River? Dead Men Walking? Carlito's Way? The list goes on and on...

He sucks

This creep no talent is nothing but a slimy douchebag. Preferred hardcore porn with pathological degenerate Lars von Trier than his girlfriend of two years. Hell, what woman with any personal quality would want this turd anyway?

Terrible actor. he should be much higher on this list.

I agree. He had bad acting in Transformers

45 Kevin Costner Kevin Costner

Very bland. No versatility. He is boring to watch.

Same character and same wooden delivery in every movie. I feel like I'm listening to him read a script. If he didn't direct/produce his own work, he would've slipped off the radar decades ago.

Terrible actor cast in some really good movies. Could you imagine how good some of these would have been with a good actor. Kevin, you fooled Hollywood for years. You're a lucky man. They should have told you years ago, "don't quit your day job."

Not awful, but very wooden. I remember in The Bodyguard where Whitney Houston (the singer) was much better than you would expect, while Costner (the actual actor here) was far worse than you would expect. Says it all really, doesn't it? - Mrveteran

46 William Shatner William Shatner William "Bill" Shatner is a Canadian actor, singer, author, producer, director, spokesman, and comedian.

Come on! The Star trek series would never have been so good if he wasn't acting like some people think.

A egomaniacal, pompous buffoon who can't act. Actually, he was okay in that series where he played a pompous buffoon lawyer. Ugh.

Audiences completely lacked sophistication in the seventies otherwise, the Enterprise would have experienced the first interstellar mutiny!

Only love for the shats.

If you think he's a great actor you are half dead

47 Will Ferrell Will Ferrell John William "Will" Ferrell is an American actor, comedian, producer, and writer. He first established himself in the mid-1990s as a cast member on the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live.

He has no natural talent... he tries to be what he thinks is funny. To be fair, I tried to watch one of his movies and couldn't get through the first half. He was so disgusting!

Never has been any good never will be. Must have one helluva agent to get him any work, let alone movies. Total nonentity that should not be encouraged, don't know anyone who likes his 'childish, puerile, annoying' sense of humour(?) or his stupid face!

The man's a 2@...end of.!

This should be on #1

I really don't understand how this man made a movie. His cliche "random stupidness" is a disgrace. You know when something is so stupid over time it becomes funny? I'm still waiting since he first came out.

48 Drew Barrymore Drew Barrymore Drew Blythe Barrymore is an American actress, producer, director, author, model and entrepreneur. She is a member of the Barrymore family of actors, and the granddaughter of John Barrymore. She achieved fame as a child actress with her role in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

Her mannerisms are always the same in every movie and she has no real depth of character

One of those actresses that are too overrated for no reasons. In Drama she plays overdramatic and in comedies she is childish. Never understood why she gets so much attention.

I only liked her in " Donnie Darko " and she didn't even have the big role there, just about 20 minutes. She really can't act.

The only reason she made it is because her grandfather was john barrymore.

Of course anyone who actually believes that vaccines cause autism would be stupid enough to agree to work on Norm of the North!
