The Most Overrated Actors of All Time

List Criteria: Highly praised A-list actors and actresses who maybe don't deserve quite so many accolades

List of the most overrated actors of all time, as ranked by critics and fans from all over the world. Actors are seen as the face of the movies, television, and other media products in which they star. Extra attention is paid to them, as if they are infallible people. Actors and actresses have become like gods to many people around the globe, and they are worshiped with praise, money, awards, and gifts. However, many of the actors receiving the most accolades are extremely overrated in their raw talent, charisma, and chemistry with other actors. While many actors, like Tom Cruise and Will Smith, bring in the big box office bucks, they have little to no acting range and often phone in their performances.

 

Many of the actors who get the most praise gave one or two great performances but then rested on their laurels for the rest of their careers. Others are pretty good actors, but nowhere near as talented as the overwhelming praise they get states. Even more actors have no talent at all, but are famous because of their looks and personality. Even some of the actors and actresses from classic movies aren’t as gifted as many claim.

 

Who are the most overrated actors? This list features current and Old Hollywood actors who are higher rated then they deserve for their acting skills.
