25 Most Overrated Actresses

Overrated actresses happen. It’s usually because of an over-reliance on looks or just lacking the emotional depth to make characters believable. For a variety of reasons, the following 25 women made the list as the most overrated actresses.

25. Julia Roberts

25. Julia Roberts

25. Julia Roberts

It’s the same smiling, over-the-top laughing, feigning to be taken serious acting job in every role. She is constantly playing herself like every movie is a documentary about her life. We get it Julia, you think you’re hot and amazing and super-fantastic but you could at least learn how to do a proper fake kiss, instead of the old-woman, smudged lip job you pulled in the Ocean’s movies.

24. Scarlett Johansson

24. Scarlett Johansson

She has Mona Lisa looks but with coloring book acting skills. No one watches Johansson in a movie because they enjoy her acting. They’re all just hoping she has a wardrobe malfunction and might get a little boob action. Let’s face it; those things were her meal-ticket, not her acting ability and pouty bottom lip.

23. Katherine Heigl

She is the “queen” of the rom-com that doesn’t make any money and is only capable of playing the frazzled, damsel-in-distress who is constantly searching for a man. She cries, she whines, she complains and cry-laughs until a nice man comes to the rescue. Then she is Pharrell “Happy!” #puke

22. Drew Barrymore

I used to like Drew and then she went and tied her career to the sewage drain that is Adam Sandler. She was doing Hiegl before it was fashionable to play dim-witted, emotionally bankrupt blondes who fall in love with slovenly slobs. She is like a comedian who thinks a joke is funny even if no one else is laughing and no one is laughing anymore Drew. The jig is up. Get a new shtick, because always playing dumb has gotten dumb.

21. Ellen Page

Oh, but she’s cute…yeah, so are kittens, what’s your point? Ellen is the hipster generations “it” girl with the dry-humor that isn’t funny and the angsty energy that makes you believe she is sincere. Don’t even get me started on Juno, the film that made her famous and she’s been riding that overhyped tripe for seven years. Then again, every single character she plays is Juno! The sheen is gone and all that remains is field fertilizer.

20. Malin Akerman

Malin Akerman

In revealing tight leather, no one is better that Malin. Otherwise, can you even name one movie she was in? Another “celebrity” based more on looks and less on talent.

19. Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley

19. Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley

She is a robotic line reader who is more suited to high school plays than major motion pictures where expressing emotions is in the job description.

18. Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep

18. Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep

She has a single preset facial expression, just one that shows up during every moment. She has an overbearing, annoying, hamming it up acting style. It’s all very cringe-inducing.

17. Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson

17. Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson

Her best role is a band groupie. When that’s the apex of your IMDb page, you have problems. She is one of many examples of nepotism gone wrong on this list.

16. Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan

16. Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan

She used to be an actress, and then she went train wreck crazy and will probably be remembered more for her sexual conquests. A once bright career was thrown away in favor of being a D-List hack.

15. Abigail Breslin

Abigail Breslin

15. Abigail Breslin

Abigail Breslin

A wholly manufactured child star who became famous for a dancing scene in a terribly overrated movie, and we were fooled into buying the hype. Her moonlighting as a philosophizer on Twitter doesn’t help the cause.

14. Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts

14. Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts

Another example of nepotism gone wrong. She is bland, stale and destroys franchises! Yes, I’m talking about Scream! No one is buying this prissy pampered princess as a killer!

13. Ellen Pompeo

Ellen Pompeo

13. Ellen Pompeo

Ellen Pompeo

It’s always whiney, deer in the headlights blank stare and woe is me with the Meredith Grey actress. She is pull-your-hair-out, I’d rather stab myself with a fork than watch her annoying. She’s just always rude, selfish and needy.

12. Megan Fox

Megan Fox

12. Megan Fox

Megan Fox

Ms. Fox has one job in a movie and it’s certainly not talking or acting. It’s showing cleavage and looking sultry, because any attempts to actually act are swiftly met with derision and being replaced by an even less capable actress.

11. Sienna Miller

 Sienna Miller

11. Sienna Miller

 Sienna Miller

When your claim to fame is dating another famous actor, whilst manipulating the press with your golden locks and inane babble about monogamy being overrated, it’s time to check into overrated rehab.

10. Hilary Swank

Hilary Swank

10. Hilary Swank

Hilary Swank

Being honest, I just don’t like Swank as an actress or any movie she is in. She makes this face like someone just stole the jam our of her donut, jaw all sagging and face all scrunched in awkward annoyance. She is the original scoff face.

9. Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel

When the most common defense of your acting ability is someone saying, “yeah, but she is hot,” there might be a problem. She is frustratingly vacant as if her looks will deliver the lines themselves.

8. Melissa McCarthy

 Melissa McCarthy

8. Melissa McCarthy

 Melissa McCarthy

Maybe not overrated, but there has been a McCarthy saturation happening so much so, that I’m starting to choke on it. Then again, maybe I just don’t find exploding fecal matter funny.

7. Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway

7. Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway

She is bratty, smug and turned into a diva that had to shave her head to be taken serious as an actress. Anytime that happens, you might need to reevaluate your talent level and realize you’re at the bottom.

6. Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow

6. Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow

Insufferable is the word you’re looking for to describe Paltrow. There’s a very hollow, doe-eyed pretentiousness about her acting that makes all her films mediocre and average. She has one setting and it’s dull.

5. Hayden Panettiere

Hayden Panettiere

5. Hayden Panettiere

Hayden Panettiere

The generic blondes most famous role, a cheerleader who can’t die, is also where she lets you know she will forever be a pestering little petulant brat who wants it all about her. It’s just the same selfish behavior every role out. Whatever talent she has is hidden behind that constant grumpy glare and stare of death.

4. Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle Rodriguez

4. Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle Rodriguez

A cement block has more expressions. She delivers every single line in every single movie like she is a tough chick, even when the role doesn’t call for it. She is balsa wood, just playing angry girl over and over and over Ad nauseam.

3. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence

3. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence

She is mechanically one-dimensional, emotionally artificial, and is only really good at being childishly pouty. What you call naturalistic, I call empty, blank and vapid.

2. Halle Berry

Halle Berry

2. Halle Berry

Halle Berry

Quick, name her most famous role! The one where she finally took her clothes off right! If taking it all off is Oscar worthy, then Berry is the greatest actress of all time! Being sexy and hot does not make a great actress. Stop whispering and get a more expressive face that will help.

1. Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart

1. Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart

The original scoffing, scowling, stammering, stuttering, gapping open mouth, temper-tantrum throwing, lip-biting, hair-flipping, plank of wood moody actress. She is stiff, surly, and as emotionless as a corpse. A tape recorder in a mannequin could do her job.
