We all have our favorite actors. We pay attention to their newest projects, binge-watch their shows, and check out their movies. But what about actors that we can't stand to see in any show or movie? Entertainment fans in a popular online forum discussed the actors they really can't watch anymore. Here are the top 25, in no particular order.

1. Margot Robbie

Despite her significant roles in recent box office killers like Barbie, one movie lover said they simply can't stand to watch her. They can't explain why exactly but think it has something to do with how stilted she appears when doing more serious roles. 

2. Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman turned off at least one person who said they felt she was a great actress and a lovely person, but couldn't stand the plastic surgery. 

3. Renee Zellweger

Another person said Renee Zellweger picked up too much plastic surgery too, making it hard for them to watch her on screen. 

4. Helen Hunt

One participant admitted to having had a crush on Helen Hunt before she got plastic surgery. This commenter went on to clarify they have no issues with cosmetic surgery when it's done properly. 

5. Famke Janssen

One movie fan said that Meg Ryan's plastic surgery did not do much to help her, claiming she ruined her face for no reason. 

7. Jennifer Grey

Someone felt the same about their crush on the Dirty Dancing actress. While Jennifer Grey is still gorgeous, her acting simply isn't the same anymore. 

8. Eddie Redmayne

Another person said they can't watch Eddie Redmayne. They explained he gives them the impression of wanting to be praised for his acting rather than his ability to become a character. 

9. Mark Wahlberg

One forum commenter doesn't buy Mark Wahlberg's redemption. In fact, they think he detracts from any project he's in based on his presence alone.  

10. Jimmy Fallon

One person said Jimmy Fallon should stop breaking the 4th wall. Another commenter chimed in to agree, saying the host seems fake. 

11. The Rock/Dwayne Johnson

Another forum user wants to know if Dwayne Johnson can even act. The former wrestler has done a lot of big films while doing a startlingly little amount of acting. He shows up as The Rock, and that's it. 

12- Pete Davidson

Somebody wants to know why Pete Davidson is everywhere. He's not an actor, not a great comedian, and he only seems to have a talent for dating A-list celebrities for a few months. 

13. Pauly Shore

Another individual thinks Pauly Shore is probably a nice guy, but they just don't find him funny.  

14. Ansel Elgort

One person said Ansel Elgort gives them the ick. They offered no further explanation, however.

15. Ryan Reynolds

Another respondent feels that Ryan Reynolds is just on automatic repeat. He plays the same annoying character in every movie he does with a colorful vocabulary ready to fly. When he was new to Hollywood, the act was funny. Now, it's just boring. 

16. Anthony Mackie

For more than one contributor, Anthony Mackie tops this list. One person said they found him to be bad at acting. Another called his behavior in interviews off-putting. 

17. Kevin Hart

One person enjoyed the Jumanji movie but can't stand Kevin Hart. Like his friend The Rock, Kevin shows up as himself no matter the script. 

18. Will Smith

A few contributors actively avoid anything with Will Smith in it. That's a whole new level of dislike. 

19. Tom Cruise

One commenter isn't a fan of Tom Cruise but admits he has some good movies. It's his affiliation with Scientology that turns a lot of people off from his work.

20. Jesse Eisenberg

Several people listed Jesse Eisenberg on this list with differing opinions about why they can't stand him. One commenter cited American Ultra as his worst performance, while another expressed their upset about him being cast as Lex Luthor. 

21. James Franco

James Franco's creep factor has people turned off about his acting. Unfortunately, he's also not that great of a director. 

22. Ben Affleck

One movie fan said that Ben Affleck exudes lousy energy, calling him “smarmy.” Another person said he's “devoid of charisma.”

23. Seth Rogen

Several people said they were not fans of Seth Rogen for a slew of reasons. A commenter called him annoying, arrogant, and everything they dislike about stoner culture. 

24. Timothée Chalamet

One particularly disgruntled commenter is sure they've never seen Timothée Chalamet move into a role, saying he always seems to be half in and half out of his roles. Another described his performances as wooden.  

25. Chris Pratt

On examination, one movie fan thinks it's a fifty-fifty toss-up for Chris Pratt. In his more serious roles, his acting is terrible. In comedy, though, Pratt brings life and energy to the screen.
