Anything with Keira Knightly.

'Is it still raining - I hadn't noticed.'

Granted, Judi Dench probably couldn't have pulled off such a crappy line but Andie McDowell really is abysmal

Nicolas Cage in Capt. Corelli has got to be up there.
Loved the book so yes it did ruin the film for me

Not from a film but just watched the first episode of Britannia and most of the actors in that could take the worst acting award. Absolutely dreadful!

Anything with Judi Dench standing bolt upright and reciting her lines like a robot.

It's cringey.

I'll happily watch poorly acted shite if it's entertaining but she takes it a step to far. ^Try, Judi. You might find you enjoy playing a different character.

Nicolas Cage in anything. I've never seen him act well!

Kate Beckinsale in Much Ado is atrocious.

Keira Knightley in anything.

Mark wahlberg in The Happening

'Is it still raining - I hadn't noticed.'

Yup, Andie McDowel is right up there.

Also Nic Cage in anything, Harrison Ford in anything, Keira Knightley in general - how they call themselves actors is honestly beyond me.

Oh and yes to Adam Sandler - cringe.

Keanu Reeves in Bram Stoker's Dracula. Just horrible.

Keira Knightley. She can’t act but she is pretty.

Natalie Portman. Always the same in every film. No depth.

On the other hand Jessica Chastian is amazing and I could watch her all day long.

Ed Westwick in Chalet Girl. He's like an actual plank of wood and has zero chemistry with Felicity Jones. I've never watched Gossip Girl but I have no idea how he's considered a heartthrob.

ShatnersBassoon Wed 07-Feb-18 18:28:59

Nicolas Cage in The Wicker Man is SO bad.

dustarr73 Wed 07-Feb-18 18:31:46

Adam Sandler just plays the same too.He now just plays the father gets.He is the worst actor

Bubblegumfan Wed 07-Feb-18 18:34:33

Kristen Stewart in anything! The faces she pulls really wind me up!

Any Troma film but they are supposed to be like that and part of the fun.

But I have to say Harry Potter (runs and hides)

LuxuryMilk Wed 07-Feb-18 18:36:30

Not saying he is a bad actor as such but Will Smith is Will Smith in every single film. So grumpy and miserable

Ca55andraMortmain Wed 07-Feb-18 18:36:37

Daniel Radcliffe on all of the potter films. And yes, it ruined them.

Knittedfairies Wed 07-Feb-18 18:37:35

I once read a review of a Keira Knightley film where the reviewer said her acting was so wooden he had re-named her Ikea Knightley...

SignoraStronza Wed 07-Feb-18 18:37:38

Emma Watson as Hermione. I know she was only a child but I thought her acting was atrocious. Really ruined the film's for me and I've only bothered watching one or two.

ShatnersBassoon Wed 07-Feb-18 18:38:05

The Weasley kids in Harry Potter. Surely they could have found some twins who passed GCSE drama.

Whisky2014 Wed 07-Feb-18 18:39:02

Oh god Room is so bad

LadyMonicaBaddingham Wed 07-Feb-18 18:39:52

Johnny Depp in From Hell. His supposedly 'British' accent was all over the place; cockney, RP, Irish, you name it. Even country Dorset at one point. Worse than Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins, who was at least consistent.
