This list of the most overrated actors of all time, has been 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. Hollywood 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. Some believe that overrated male actors, like Tom Cruise and Will Smith, bring in the big box office bucks, but 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 receive. Even more overrated celebrities have no talent at all, but are famous because of their looks and personality. Bottom line: some of the actors and actresses from classic movies aren’t as gifted as many claim.

Who are the most overrated actors and actresses? This list features current and old Hollywood actors who are rated far more highly then they deserve (for their acting skills). Make your opinions heard by voting below!
