Top 10 Creepy actors that are probably creepy in real life!

What actors do you think are just so naturally creepy no matter what film they are in?

These actors listed below just scare the hell out of me no matter what films they are in. They are just so damn creepy, and they seem like they would be pretty creepy in real life as well.

1. Michael Pitt
2. Vincent Gallo
3. Eddie Marsan/David O'Hara
4. Crispin Glover
5. Elijah Wood/Toby Maguire
6. Nick Stahl
7. Leo Fitzpatrick
8. Lili Taylor
9. Sean Penn
10. Colm Meaney/Colin Firth

(And I used to think Willem Dafoe, Gary Oldman, and Steve Buscemi were creepy. Dafoe, Oldman, and Buscemi are just too likable in movies and in real life.)

Your list of 10 has 13 people in it. The right answer to this question by the way is Gary Busey.

Yeah...what's up with doubling people up? If it's going to be 13, just make the list 13.

The first person that popped into my head was Crispin Glover.

1. Michael Pitt - Yeah, he seems a little creepy

2. Vincent Gallo - Definitely. The guy creeps me the fuck out!

3. Eddie Marsan/David O'Hara - don't know who they are.

4. Crispin Glover - Used to think he was creepy, then I saw him on Letterman. He may be a little off but he actually seems like a nice guy.

5. Elijah Wood/Toby Maguire - Both seem like nice, normal guys to me.

6. Nick Stahl - Used to think he was weird, liked him in T3, he's OK in my book.

7. Leo Fitzpatrick - don't know who he is. Even after looking him up on IMDB I still don't know.

8. Lili Taylor - Got that weird bohemian look, but I find her oddly attractive; She may be creepy as shit for all I know.

9. Sean Penn - Good actor but a bit of an anger management problem, that's all.

10. Colm Meaney/Colin Firth - Both these guys actually seem pretty cool to me.



I'll add:

Cillian Murphy
Jeff Goldblum
Nicolas Cage
Ted Levine
Jared Leto

After working in L.A. over the years I've heard about some of these people.
I've a met a few as-well.

Cillian Murphy - Creepy looking but evidently a really nice guy

Jeff Goldblum - Super nice guy, willing to talk and take pictures. If you mention knowledge of Jazz music he will talk your ear off.

Nicolas Cage - Super nice guy, takes himself too seriously but doesn't degrade others while doing it.

Jared Leto - Super ASShole!

Crispin Glover - Dresses in disguise while shopping, and very standoffish

Sean Penn - Another Super ASShole!

John C. Reily - is a MORON in person

And before anyone mentions him, Christopher Walken is one of the nicest guys I have EVER met.

Crispin Glover is the one answer that has me nodding in agreement.

Sean Penn definitely. There really isn't anything likable about him besides his acting.

Jeff Goldblum
My mom was delayed in the airport for a few hours once with him. She said he seemed very nice, never got irritable when people came up to him.

Crispin Glover is actually quite nice in person, still odd though.

Crispin Glover... probably more weird than actually creepy, though it can be a very fine line.

Vincent Gallo... definite creepy vibe there, though I don't know whether it's something Gallo intentionally cultivates, or if he's really like that.

John Hurt seems like he could make you uncomfortable.

Ummm, Christopher Walken anyone? Jenny McCarthy said he keeps a rotten apple in his pocket. Although, I'm not sure how she would know that.

Jeremy Sisto - He has this Patrick Bateman (American Psycho) meets Buffalo Bill (Silence of the Lambs) quality that creeps me out
