There is probably no one actor out there who is liked by everyone. We all have our own personal idols, as well as movie stars that we just do not like. Surprisingly enough, our attitude toward artists doesn’t always depend on their talent and skills. Oftentimes we feel some kind of weird dislike for very unexpected reasons.
We at Bright Side couldn’t pass by the threads where users were sharing which actors they don’t want to see on the screen and why. Much to our surprise, we found a lot of A-list actors among them.
Tom Hanks. He’s a great actor. But I just can’t see him as anything other than Tom Hanks in different clothing. I love his personality and values, but I cannot get past that it’s just Tom Hanks. Respect, but I can’t watch him. © kutbakfiets / Reddit Kevin Bacon. His face freaks my wife out, so I haven’t seen a Kevin Bacon movie in over 6 years. © thereisnotry_11 / Reddit Michelle Rodriguez. She always gets typecast as the most annoying, “I’m not like all the other girls, I’m one of the guys,” girls. © Expensive_Historian / Reddit
Jennifer Lopez. I start falling asleep whenever she appears on the screen. © Kelvin_Inman / Reddit Ben Stiller. I don’t know what it is, I’ve just never enjoyed him in anything. I’m sure he’s an awesome guy and I respect his work, as well as his reputation, but his films just aren’t funny to me. © charronald / Reddit Angelina Jolie. I’ve thought she was a homewrecker since the Brad & Jennifer break up. No matter what good she does in the world, I can’t unsee it. © thatsterrible42 / Reddit Leonardo DiCaprio. I used to like movies he was in and I consider him a dignified actor. But I got this feeling that he has been working too hard all these years in order to get the “Oscar.” I got a bit tired of it. I even felt some kind of relief when DiCaprio finally got his award because now he can perhaps relax and act without any pressure.
Beyoncé. Hollywood is determined to make her a leading lady, but her acting is just awful. © AmiIcepop / Reddit Mark Ruffalo. He always says his lines in a monotone voice. © obbybop1 / Reddit Shailene Woodley. I was in middle school when Secret Life of the American Teenager came out and her character, the lead, was so whiney and unlikeable that it’s ruined everything she’s done ever since. © DevoutandHeretical / Reddit Will Smith. He plays himself and ruins my suspension of disbelief. I don’t see his character, I see Will Smith. © GMU2012 / Reddit
Ryan Reynolds. He’s like the jock who begrudgingly agreed to be in the school play. © ShaddowLad / Reddit Rebel Wilson. Her entire shtick is putting on tight clothes and falling over. © RedRocket05 / Reddit Johnny Depp. He used to be interesting, but now it’s a lot of the same. I still have no idea why he was cast in Black Mass — he looks/looked nothing like Whitey and he didn’t embody Whitey’s real spirit. © Beachy5313 / Reddit Renee Zellweger. She’s so squinty. © snackpack3000 / Reddit
Chloe Grace-Mortez. I feel like I can tell she’s acting, something about her voice or maybe her facial expressions. © Schwenn / Reddit John Krasinski. So glad he’s directing now. Please stop trying to make him a beefy leading man. © Unknown author / Reddit Anne Hathaway. It feels like she’s trying to play her role, rather than making me believe that she is the person she is portraying. © Unknown author / Reddit Dwayne Johnson. He may be a good actor, but whenever I see him in a movie it just feels like he plays himself. Maybe it’s the writers’ fault though for not writing good characters for him. © Kattnos / Reddit
Robert Downey, Jr.. He comes off a bit too weird in his interviews. © GoldPisseR / Reddit Emma Watson. I don’t exactly dislike her, but the love for her kinda confuses me. All I see is someone pretty, who is a good-not-great actress, but not worth all the hullabaloo. © henry_tbags / Reddit Will Ferrell. A grown man acting like an 8-year-old can only be SO funny. © CertifiedPreOwned / Reddit Kristen Stewart. She often plays similar characters. She usually relies on subtlety in her acting, especially in emotional moments. © Unknown author / Reddit
Scarlett Johansson. I feel like she just plays the ’attractive character’ with no emotions and isn’t allowed to make facial expressions because expressing emotion might make her not look 100% perfect. Maybe she’s a great actress when she’s allowed to actually act and not just look pretty for the camera. © LBertilak / Reddit Sandra Bullock and Adam Sandler. They keep playing the same role over and over… movie after movie. © il_doc / Reddit Nicolas Cage. I’ve just associated his face with memes so much, that any and every movie he is in, feels like a parody of an actual movie to me. © Sinclairlim / Reddit
