“Will Ferrell, I know a lot of people think he's funny, but I just think his jokes are dumb,” a contributor shares. I guess it simply takes a lot or zero effort to be funny. Ferrell's “childish” humor only seems to get on people's nerves.

For Ben Stiller, many contributors note he is a pretty decent actor, and their problem with not wanting to engage his presence in a movie only comes from the place of genuine dislike for some features he plays. A movie buff explains: “He's pretty much typecast as an awkward bumbler who gives the audience anxiety with one mistake after another. Meet the Parents was awful for this reason.”

13. Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg desperately wants to forget that he was once a rapper in the 1980s, but the internet never forgets. Now to his acting, Mark seems to no longer be welcomed by the viewers because of his violent lifestyle and strong racist stance. It's difficult for people to forget or forgive that he punched a guy in the eye for being Asian.

14. Alec Baldwin

Someone, please tell Alec Baldwin that you don't command respect by being violent or aggressive. It's no news that nobody wants anything to do with an aggressively violent person, hence why fans are reconsidering their loyalty to this actor. “If you even dare to take a photo of him or from what I[‘ve] heard, even call out his name, he might go into a tirade on you,” a person shares.

15. Nicolas Cage

He might be a good actor, but something about his face further frightens prospective fans.

16. Adam Sandler

His repetitiveness of a similar character portrayal leaves people wondering if Adam Sandler is talented or if he's simply afraid of trying out different, more challenging roles. A critic writes, “It's always about any or all of the following subjects: One, he's angry; two, childhood nostalgia; or three, he's Jewish. It gets old fast.”

17. Jennifer Aniston

18. Shia LaBeouf

People complain about how Shia LaBeouf leaves the actual acting for shouting everyone's eardrums to a pause. Humorously, someone thinks the name Shia LaBeouf would be a perfect name for a stripper or drag queen. But viewers think that, unlike drag queens, LaBeouf brings an unwelcoming drama to the scene.

19. Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy's sense of humor and how she delivers it in her movies has been described as abysmal and bland. “I can't stand her performance,” blurts a movie critic.

20. Will Smith

21. Steven Seagal

If throwing a bomb on someone you don't like was legal, surely thousands of people would wait in line to throw bombs on Steven Seagal. Seagal has been accused of a lot of sexual harassment and brutality. Also, his egotistical behavior has left people further estranged from anything related to him.

22. Natalie Portman

Oh, if beauty could save. Despite being one of the most beautiful actresses, Natalie Portman has yet to gain the loyalty of a vast fanbase. This is because quite a several people believe she lacks the talent required to make her one of the most sought-after actors. “Any part she has in any movie I watch immediately takes me out of it and reminds me that I'm not in an immersive fantasy world but one where actors are reading scripted lines,” says a movie critic.

23. Jennifer Lawrence

Several people hate Lawrence by the day and do not want to hear about any movie she stars in. According to some, she comes across as phony and to others as untalented. There's been a drastic reduction in the quality of the movies she appears in recently, notes another person.

24. Vin Diesel

Besides car race scenes, critics think Vin Diesel knows nothing about acting. For a man who changed his name from Mark Sinclair to Vin Diesel, you might've expected something thrilling with the new identity. Perhaps, the name “Diesel” only works in favor of fast car scenes.
