Most Hated Actors

I don't really get hating an actor, but for whatever reasons, these guys seem like they're hated the most:

Ben Affleck
Nicolas Cage
Josh Hartnett
Mathew McConaughey
Hayden Christensen
Paul Walker

who else is hated as much, or even more than?

But she's HOT. And a MILF.

Some of my "favorites":

Richard Gere (only good movies he makes are when something else hinders his woodenness - i.e. Malick's visuals in Days of Heaven, Edward Norton in Primal Fear, Louis Gossett Jr. in An Officer and a Gentleman)

Hayden "Mannequin Skywalker" Christensen
Orlando Bloom (the name alone puts me into a vengeful rage)
Zac Efron (nearly shat a brick when Richard Linklater cast him as the lead in his next movie)

Michael Rappaport. The only character he plays is himself.

I can see why Halle Berry is hated "she can't act" ((Catwoman)).

I like most of the actors listed so far.

Here is my list of hated actors. I don't know if this is how the general public feels about these people, but I certainly don't like watching movies with the following people:

Michael Douglass
Al Pacino
Uma Thurman
Julia Roberts
Tim Robbins
Susan Sarandon
Meryl Streep

Sure it's not most beloved actors?

I don't have any actors that I hate. I would say though that I have never been able to sympathize with any Julia Roberts character.

Is this politically motivated?

Anyway, on to me...

I loathe this person:
Tara Reid - and if she walked in front of me, I'd push her in front of a moving bus and then walk over and spit on her corpse.

I hate these actors:
Halle Berry
Hayden Christensen
Harrison Ford (everything post-regarding Henry)
John Billingsly
Paul Giamatti
John Goodman
Lucy Lawless
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Freddie Prince Jr.

I'll think of more later maybe. So much hate to go around.

He is still a damn good actor in my book

I don't hate him, but I think a lot of people do because of the things he says and the does.

Michael Douglas? Al Pacino? John Goodman?

Not by a long shot.

Michael Douglas is excellent at chewing scenery. Wall Street and Falling Down are fucking classics.

Pacino is a contemporary. He may do a lot of shit, but come on. He's Michael F'N Corleone.

John Goodman has done a lot of crap. A LOT of crap. But I still love him to death. All of his Coen Brothers collaborations stand out, especially The Big Lebowski, which is less a movie and more of a way of life and an answer to everything in existence. Also the best fuckin' thing ever...Goodman owns in this one. "OVER THE LINE!"

Most actors at least have one decent movie on their resume, even a good performance.

Maybe some people don't like him because he's such a huge movie star and yet not really a damn good actor. At least in my opinion.

You are correct. For instance, Michael Rappaport was decent in those episodes of Friends he was in.

Willem Dafoe


I've always hated him. I think Boondock Saints and his character in it just put me over the line to feel repulsed by whatever he acts in. It's at the point where if I'm looking at a movie to rent/watch and see he stars in it, odds are unless it got really good reviews/word of mouth, I won't watch it.

I can't recall any actors I REALLY hate, but some I find quite annoying. Like Nicholas Cage (he plays the same character all over again lately) and Bruce Willis (the same reason). After 'Before the Devil Knows You're Dead' I finally realised why Ethan Hawke have been irritating me so much always - he's just a bad actor. He can't play and just grimaces all the time.
Oh, and...

I'd be the second in the queue to spit, Trigger

Hate for acting abilities or otherwise? If the former, Madonna fits the bill. For the latter, Will Smith gets on my nerves.

Yeah, she's OK in Lebowski, but mostly because she didn't need to act for that role.

Will Smith because he thinks he was the reason ID4 was the hit it was.
George Clooney because it seems Hollywood & media is pushing this guy on the public as the man.
