Name one actor you like that everyone else dislikes???

Besides my choice of actor, which most everyone dislikes Sylvester Stallone (Sly still has a fanbase who love him).

I'm just curious if anyone here has an actor you like that almost everyone doesn't like?

Other easy target actors who I can think of who are most hated are Tom Green, Kevin Costner, Leo Dicaprio and Ben Affleck, but they aren't my choices though, I was just giving examples of this topic.

NOTE: I do like Kevin Costner and Leo Dicaprio though as I said just giving examples of this thread.

Nicole Kidman
Adrian Brody
Robert DeNiro
Al Pacino
Marlon Brando

Everyone hates these actors, and i've yet to see a successful film (box office wise) from any of them. I can still say that I am their one true fan. When they finally get their big break, i'll be able to say I always knew who they were. Remember these names! Soon everyone will be aware of them.........

I like Al Pacino but a lot of people can't stand him.

I love Al Pacino, he is one of my absolute favorites.

See, it's same thing with Stallone. All those actors you listed above all made movies that were box office bombs.

I love Nicole Kidman, but most of my friends and co-workers hate her. Of course, none of them can explain why they don't like her.

I think people dislike Pacino because they think he is pretty much playing his Scent of a Woman character over and over (which he kind of is).

I will say that Pacino movie trailers are predictable. It will start out with him talking quietly, and by the time the trailer winds to a close, he's SCREAMING IN THAT OL' PACINO VOICE! HOO-WAH!!!

Kevin Costner - Brilliant performances in JFK, Thirteen Days, and Field of Dreams. Also played gleefully cold-blooded villain in an action movie just about everyone hates; 3000 miles to Graceland

Melanie Griffith, when she is in something good such as Something Wild or Working Girl. Unfortunately, she's not in good movies very often.

Wow. I really like most of the actors listed in here.

I don't have anyone new to add, I just have to confess that I also like a lot of Sly Stallone's performances. It's the movies he's been in that have been less than stellar.

So, I like nearly every actor listed here, and I'm a confirmed admirer of Stallone. Does this mean I lack taste, or am I open minded???

I've got nothing against Ben Affleck. I don't always care for the movies he's in though...

I've noticed a lot of Renee Zellweger hate in these forums lately, and I'll see a movie just because she's in it (and have yet to be disappointed).

Same for Reese Witherspoon (although a couple more like Sweet Home Alabama will change that).

She's not my favorite, but I like Julia Roberts in a lot of movies too.

Oh, and I think Matt Damon is a pretty good actor.

Well...not an actor, but Michael Bay.

Granted he's not my favorite director or anything...but I have found a few of his movies at least enjoyable.

I like Keanu Reeves. He is certainly not a great actor, but better him than some rap star wanna-be actor.

Most of you are naming off hugely popular actors.

I like Vin Diesel - well so do millions of other people - guess everyone around here hates him.

A good answer to this question would be something like Steven Segal - most people, both here and in the outside world, dislike this guy.

Al Pacino? Whatever, he's like one of the most popular actors ever.

It's difficult thinking of someone that alot of people really dislike in the first place. Unless the question is "which actor do you like that elitist snobs dislike?" Then the Keanu Reeves, Vin Diesel, Kevin Costner answers are acceptable.

I like Quentin Tarantino as an actor and it seems like most people think he's crappy.
