Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins, surely!

I know it's not a film (sorry) but fiz from corrie is the worst actress ever IMO. That pretend crying makes me cringe.

Daniel Radcliffe gives me the shivers <yeuch>

I think Scarlett Johansson ruins good films.

MorphineDreams Tue 05-Aug-14 14:49:14

Fiz I just can't watch her when she's on telly!

Jim Carey in everything. I can't stand the man

And Tom Cruise has ruined some excellent films for me

Can I be the first to mention Andie McDowell in 4 weddings?
"Is it raining? I hadn't noticed"
Shit acting.

Keira Knightly in anything

Keanu Reeves in Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing.

He is unwatchable.

I wish Keira Knightly would stop pouting.

I was going to say Keira Knightley in Bend it like Beckham, Love Actually etc. Not a fan.

Jason Isaacs in West Wing. Awful, truly awful Belfast accent. Irritates the life out of me even thinking about it.

there are so many very famous actors who don't appear to be all that good at it really. But then if you flick over to the SyFy channel (or similar) of an evening and see some of the efforts on there, suddenly everyone on Hollyoaks and Holby City looks like a gifted interpreter of stories

Sean Connery in Darby O'Gill and the Little People.

Supposed to be an Irish accent.

Absolutely no change to his Scots tones.

(plus it's a deliriously CRAP film!)

Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter.

Sofia Coppola Godfather 3.

Mel Gibson in Braveheart. Looked and sounded like he was auditioning for a hobbit role.

Mr Potato (Russell Crowe) in anything. I just can't take my eyes off the flobby face.

MorphineDreams Tue 05-Aug-14 14:57:52

Everyone in Hollyoaks. They overact everything

Shia Tue 05-Aug-14 14:58:14

Robert Carlyle the beach

Michelle Pffeifer as cat woman

Gary oldman in Sid and Nancy

Nicholas cage in wild at heart.

All hammed it up dreadfully.

littlewoollypervert Tue 05-Aug-14 14:58:19

A lot of Nicholas Cage's roles - he's as wooden as anything.

Yet was brilliant in Leaving Las Vegas?

Heels99 Tue 05-Aug-14 14:58:49

Keira knightly in everything

NutcrackerFairy Tue 05-Aug-14 15:00:07

Every role that Keira Knightley has ever played.

Also her 'role' playing herself on Graham Norton's chat show. My God she is a pretentious tiresome creature. Talking about her 'bad sex faces' with lots of horsey face pulling and forced laughter.

She must be just about the most irritating 'actress' ever.

FatherReboolaConundrum Tue 05-Aug-14 15:00:29

Drank wins: no-one has ever been worse than Sofia Coppola in anything, ever.

treaclesoda Tue 05-Aug-14 15:00:32

anything where someone non Irish tries to do an Irish accent. It never ends well.

FatewiththeLeadPiping Tue 05-Aug-14 15:11:26

No worries OP.

Ginny Weasley. Awful.

sezamcgregor Tue 05-Aug-14 15:13:33

Keira Knightley in anything. ever.

ThisFenceIsComfy Tue 05-Aug-14 15:15:30

Ewan MacGregor. God has ruined a few films. Followed closely by Tom Cruise.

ThisFenceIsComfy Tue 05-Aug-14 15:16:28

God he has that should be. God is a fine actor I'm sure.
