The Worst A-List Hollywood Actors

List Criteria: Only living actors that are currently marketed as huge stars in lead roles

We can't all be Meryl Streep and not every actor can win an Oscar, let alone be in the conversation as a great actor. The "actors" on this list of the worst living A-list Hollywood actors prove this fact with every new film they release. You won't find the men on this list among the best actors of all time. Way too many actors who have parts in movies are average, if that. This is a list that pays tribute to those A-list actors whose status as lead actors needs to be reconsidered, to put it mildly. These A-list actors somehow continue to get jobs in big blockbuster films even though they may not have the acting chops to carry an entire movie as a lead character. In short, they're the worst actors, but Hollywood hasn't realized it yet.

Many of the A-listers on this list are some of the most recognizable names in film. There is a mix of aging action stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone (both of whom's best days are behind them) and funny men like Chris Rock and Kevin James (their appearance in Grown Ups 2 alone lands them on this list). There are other terrible actors on here who may have been considered top actors at one point, like John Travolta, but they haven't had a hit movie in many years. Actors like Keanu Reeves, Jean Claude Van Damme, and David Arquette aren't exactly known for their range as thespians, yet continue to be considered bankable stars by the movie-going public. Who's the worst actor? It's these guys.

This list of actors isn't for the talented, award-winning stars. And, this list of the worst A-listers in Hollywood isn't limited to the actors already here. If you think of any bad actors who deserve to be on here, feel free to add him to this list. Vote for who you think deserves the title of the worst A-list actor in Hollywood.
