20 Terrible Actors Who Can’t Actually Act
There is actually a film called ‘Bad Actors’ and all of these listed below should be made to watch it for crimes against cinema, until they recognize their guilt. What qualifies any of them to call themselves actors is beyond me. But there’s still something in them or something they have done made them stay well in Hollywood, it’s crazy truth but you have to accept it.
20. Kate Beckinsale
Beckinsale is sparkle-eyed and delicately beautiful. But can you honestly – honestly – remember a single thing she’s said in any of her films? Us neither.
The blooper reel is maybe a little mean. But… what did we just say?
Why We Don’t Care: Look at her. Just look at her.
19. Kristen Stewart
Filling the role of Bella is a tough gig: R-Pattz has to carry the crushes of a squealing generation, but Stewart has to be the audience.
Well done Twilight producers, then, for using someone so incapable of expressing any emotion more profound than “sulking in a hoodie” that she’s basically a wobbling greenscreen void where the lusting tweens can imagine themselves instead. It’s genius really.
Why We Don’t Care: A brilliant actor in Twilight would stand-out like a vampire at a werewolf convention. We’ve got a feeling Kristen will come out of her shell once the Twilight Saga has finally reached its conclusion (if indeed it ever does).
18. Ewan McGregor
Less like can’t act, more like just doesn’t act, anymore. Only a madman would claim McGregor is talentless following the likes of Trainspotting and, uh, Moulin Rouge.
But equally, only a really mad madman would suggest he’s anything like good in Star Wars, The Island, and especially Woody Allen’s confusingly dreadful Cassandra’s Dream.
Why We Don’t Care: He’s owed at least ten Oscars for Renton. Until he gets those, he can do what he wants.
17. Pauly Shore
There, but the for grace of God, goes Keanu Reeves. While Keanu graduated from early ‘90s slacker mumblings, Shore ended up doing the pathetic clinger-on act until, well, forever.
Why We Don’t Care: He is very, very easy to ignore.
