The 10 Worst Young Actors


The Top Ten

1 Jesse Eisenberg Jesse Eisenberg Jesse Adam Eisenberg is an American actor, author, playwright, and humorist. He made his television debut with the short-lived comedy-drama series Get Real.

I have started to watch The Social Network twice, but stopped after a couple of minutes, because Eisenberg is so annoying. Thought I would give it a third try, but decided to watch the trailer first. Had to stop that as well because Eisenberg just sounds and looks and feels like an idiot...

I was going to see the new Superman and batman movie until I noticed jesse Eisenberg was in the movie. I don't understand why Hollywood insist on using this actor in any movie. I refuse to watch the movie for that reason alone. You might as well have Jonah Hill play superman. Because that would make more sense being as Jesse Eisenberg plays lex luthor. Will Smith would be a better Lex Luthor. Or even Tom hanks. SO THANK YOU JESSE FOR RUINING THE MOVIE FOR EVERYONE!

He has no range at all. He is only capable of playing one character: himself.

He sucks because he just neurotic ally explains everything. Not really acting.

2 Jonah Hill Jonah Hill Jonah Hill Feldstein, professionally known as Jonah Hill, is an American actor, producer, and comedian.

Who decided this guy has a funny bone in his body? I'd rather watch people getting high on periscope than any of his garbage movies. He must have a relative in showbiz. He's just horrible. I repeat horrible. It's a sad day when we have this loser punk instead of the likes of Rodney Dangerfield or Bill Murray. What happened to comedy?

Really do not understand how he gets cast in movies. His character is always the rude fat guy sidekick who nobody ever acknowledges is an ass. But in real life, if someone acted the way he does in movies, people wouldn't put up with him, and still call him a friend. Have never understand why he's portrayed as sympathetic, who the hell identifies with his characters?

Yeah he got in as the token fat guy. He's just an unfunny brat with no talent.

Can't stand the guy.

4 Chloe Grace Moretz Chloe Grace Moretz Chloë Grace Moretz is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2004 at the age of seven, and her first award nomination came the following year for The Amityville Horror.

This is just a personal opinion, but here it is:
She seems to show a preference for violent characters, but she clearly lacks the acting skills to flesh them out. Screaming, swearing, and shooting people does not make her believable, it just makes her what she is - a rich kid who probably screamed and swore at her well-connected, moneyed relations until she got the role.

Annoying leftist snob!

She is out twice on this list. This is proof how pathetic and annoying she is

5 Shia Labeouf Shia Labeouf Shia Saide LaBeouf is an American actor, performance artist, and director who became known among younger audiences as Louis Stevens in the Disney Channel series Even Stevens.

I can't stand him on screen. He was the most annoying thing in transformers 2,3. His antics off screen make him look even worse.

In all honesty, the 4th Indiana Jones movie might have been a lot better without Shia.

How come that Hollywood don't realized that Shia can't act, stop waisting money paying him.

Awful, can't stand him

6 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.

Jesse Eisenberg is a horrible actor. What he does isn't even acting. The only reason he's famous is his "background".

He should stick to the cheesy teen fairy-tale movies and STOP trying to sing.. Also I'm sick of hearing about how hot he is! He looks apish, like some part human, part animal creature that lives in a cave, especially with that dumb, vacant look on his face all the time.

Shame this list isn't more recent because he now has a significant amount of respect (from me at least) for one of the best performances of the decade in 'Good Time' - DysenteryGary

He's ugly. there I said it. someone had to say it to break all the groupies out of the spell. He has a really awkward looking face. That alone distracts me as he is stereotyped as the handsome lead in every movie. Which is a contradiction my brain does not compute. excuse me while I go barf.

7 Ariel Winter Ariel Winter

Sucks at acting. I hope she is ashamed of watching herself!

She sucks and is really slutty for 18 years old!

8 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.

Excels at playing the moody main character simply because she is one moody cow. Crack a smile woman!

She's literally the worst. She has no personality and just comes across as so unpleasant.

Much higher

Slut! Cheats with a married man that she knew was married and then has the nerve to suck up to his wife. This girl has more bedmates than fans

9 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.

Why is she here. Hate her anyway. Thinks shes so smart and hot. Talk about tickets on yourself. She so fake. And can't act for peanuts.A lot of people that I know think shes so over rated. Just I did harry potter. Wow do you want a pat on the back from that. If she wasnt in that. She wouldn't be so well known. And have to work for it. What she has most actors don't have that in there life time. Who work hard for it. And don't get everything given to them because I was in harry potter. Her radcliffe ate nothing but a running joke. Lol.

See with her she says one thing then next thing she does is the thing she doesn't want to be. Look at the way she does anything. Not cool. And her acting. No don't go there.

Wow look at all the make up. She looks better without it plaster on her face. And her acting no I don't like it. Please explain. Some of the things I have read about her from her native home land. She is two faced.

Why does most people in Hollywood have bad things to say about her. Also most of her movies are flops now. And her acting. Good no.

This girl can act. She just does the wrong movies. She should be in porn.

I just don't get her as a main female protagonist, can't she like be, bystander number 3 or something..

Can't stand her presence, look & terrible acting. Lots of bad young actors these days, she's definitely one of the very worst.

So overrated and shouldn't be allowed to be in Hollywood movies.

11 Taylor Lautner Taylor Lautner

He was good on Danny Phantom - 445956

He's the male Megan Fox

I hate him on Grown ups 2

I liked when he played Youngblood in Danny Phantom.
He is a good actor compared to the others in Twilight, but he still needs to learn about expressing his emotions even more.
All I've seen him do in Twilight, is being stoic and angry

Just saw his first couple of "serious movies" at any price, the paperboy, and the lucky one and each one sucked and his performance in each one was horrible

Pretty good at looking good. He'll never do Shakespeare though

Beautiful guy but can't act.

Ug. Go away, guy. Go away.

Bad actor hate anything from harry potter.

14 Jaden Smith Jaden Smith

He's a brick wall, but if he were cast to play a brick wall, he'd still collapse from a lack of talent. He's also dumb as a brick. His parents did such a wonderful job filling his head with crap, that if you were to ask him which hand was his left hand, he would respond, "Yeah, that's cool, but that's just labels. I don't label things, because that's a conspiracy against the greater truth, like, like, like totally, uh made up (looks at Will), by the Thetans."

I'm happy to see that jaden smith made the list. He's should just go to college or better yet live off his fathers money for the rest of his life and spare the world of his terrible acting and music. Time better served.

Watching his lackluster performance in "After Earth" was more than I could endure. It was as if he had never been in front of a camera before.

The whole lot if them can't act. They are in with the same group tom curse is and we all know who that is.

17 Abigail Breslin Abigail Breslin

Come on, this girl is very talented. She was awesome in " Zombieland " as the teen sister of Emma Stone. Very good in Rom-Coms and her role as Chanel number 5 in " Scream Queens " is outstanding and very funny. She doesn't belong in a "worst actor / actress " list.

Liked her a lot in the movie " Final girl ".

18 Daniel Radcliffe Daniel Radcliffe Daniel Jacob Radcliffe is an English actor who rose to prominence as the title character in the Harry Potter film series.

I for one think he's humble and a good actor. One of the more believable ones

Not a bad actor. Horns was actually watchable. I don't know about that Frankenstein movie though.

He's finished now after potter finished - gvats

Bull with out potter he be a nobody he is the worst.

20 Jake Gyllenhaal Jake Gyllenhaal Jacob Benjamin "Jake" Gyllenhaal (born December 19, 1980) is an American actor, known for his work in films like "Donnie Darko", "Brokeback Mountain", "Prisoners" and "Nightcrawler". He is the son of director Stephen Gyllenhaal and producer/screenwriter Naomi Foner. Jake and his sister Maggie have been more.

Jake Gyllenhaal definitely shouldn't be on this list. Have you seen Enemy, Southpaw, Nightcrawler, Jarhead, Prisoners, or Brokeback Mountain? He most definitely can act.

Jake gyllenhaal is turning out to be one of the finest actors ever. Take a look at his recent work.

I actually like him. He's been good in a lot of bad movies. He just needs some more good parts. This guy has got the goods.

He's 50/50. his skills aren't really bad at all. He just needs to evolve a little and seek better scripts.

If she wasn't at the right place at the right time the world wouldn't give a damn about her. One role doesn't make her that good

So smug and self centered! She puts herself out there. That's how she got her role. Doesn't deserve anybody's attention

She has to realize life's is never that easy. She has to know she won't get what she wants at every whim of hers

She caught a lucky break and is snobbish and think she owns the world. Shut your face bitch!

26 Michael Cera

No, no, no--Cera can act and he's a funny guy. Eisenberg though, is a movie killer; every scene is disrupted by his own personality rather than the character he should be portraying.

Why is he on the list?! He's a great actor, especially when it comes to his performances in Superbad and Arrested Development.

Okay my bad, I posted the thing about him being in batman v superman, and I just realized that it was Jesse Eisenberg, they look so much alike. But Cera would have done better as Lex Luthor.

I thought he did good in batman v superman

27 Ross Lynch Ross Lynch Ross Shor Lynch is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and musician. He is one of the founding members of the pop rock band R5. As an actor, he is known for his debut role as Austin Moon on the Disney Channel original series Austin & Ally, and for his role as Brady in Disney Channel's Teen Beach more.

Ross Lynch drives me to the point of insanity with his arrogant, over the top personality. I cannot watch anything he's in and I am clueless as to why he has so many fans... they're all 11 year old girls though. It's like- you're not the center of the universe and if it weren't for your dumb ass show on Disney no one would know who you were!

No clue who this even is. So I can't say she should be on this list.

28 Heath Ledger Heath Ledger Heath Andrew Ledger was an Australian actor and director. After performing roles in Australian television and film during the 1990s, Ledger left for the United States in 1998 to develop his film career.

30 Zendaya Zendaya

What a two faced cow! Oh I am sorry strong African cow...Zendaya is such a turd

Terrible actress and has to play the race card every time she gets a bad review or doesn’t get her way

She has the appeal of a mop rag and can’t sin to save her life. Sorry Zendaya is not at all what she is made out to be

She is a bitch who loves attention way too much. She creates all these lies to get it. She has got to go!

Such a snob and diva! Doesn’t deserve to act and not that great a singer either. I don’t know who is worse: her or Zendaya

39 Fátima Ptacek

Gets preferential treatment because she’s famous and gets away with vaping. Such a bitch incarnate!
