Subject: Most Overrated Actors & Actresses of All Time

Written By: woops on 10/23/07 at 2:00 am

The majority of today's young Hollywood (except a very, very few)
Sally Field (slightly too over dramatic, IMO)
Sarah Jessica Parker
Pamela Anderson
Tom Cruise (I like some of his movies, but haven't done anything good for a while)
Jody Foster (see Sally Field)
Mark Wahlburg
Any cast member from "Freinds"
Johnny Depp
Jack Black (annoying!)
Julia Roberts
Angelina Jolie
Reese Witherspoon
cast of "Desperate Housewives"

I love Johnny Depp also.  I think Leo is a Hack.  I also cannot tolerate Jennifer Lopez; she's just awful!

Dennis Rodman is an overrated actor? I didn't even know he appeared in a movie. I don;t think anybody thinks he's a great actor.
Whitney Houston? She did a couple movies in the 90's its been years since she has been in a movie.
Courteney Cox-Arquette-I did like her playing Michael J. Fox's(Alex P. Keaton's) girlfriend on "Family Ties"  I think she's an ok actress but a great actress? no way.
Rob Lowe-I actually felt bad for him since he appeared in that NBC flop "Lion's Den" a few years ago. Why did he ever choose that role?
Reese Witherspoon-I loved her in "Legally Blonde" her acting was spectacular in that movie but I have seen nothing from her since.

Dennis Rodman- Starred in a movie with Jean-Claude Van Damme, and I believe Hulk Hogan.
Whitney Houston- Should do a film about her drug addiction, called "Crack Ho".
Courteney Cox-Arquette- Was not in "Family Ties". That was Tracey Pollock.
Rob Lowe- Would do better in a role that lets him actually display more skill, which hasn't been seen since his film, "Wayne's World".
Reese Witherspoon- Don't know how to respond to that one.....

Being in a movie doesn't automatically qualify one as being an actor or actress



Courteney Cox-Arquette- Was not in "Family Ties". That was Tracey Pollock.



That was Tracey Pollan aka Mrs Michael J Fox

Courteney Cox-Arquette was in "Family Ties" as Michael J. Fox's girlfirend on the show I;m pretty positive. I know Tracey Pollen was also played Michael J. Fox's girlfriend on "Family Ties". What Michael J. Fox's character Alex P. Keaton only had one girlfriend througout the show's span? I don;t know about that.

I'll agree with you on Robe Lowe totally.

I thought reese witherspoon was good in "Legally Blonde".

The only thing I could tolerate him in is "Man In the Iron Mask".
Although I give him credit for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape".

Sorry Hawk but Courtney did appear in the last two seasons of Family Ties. She played Lauren Miller, Alex's co-worker (or boss) and potential love interest after Ellen left.

Woody Allen (that goes for his directing too)
Clint Eastwood (I hated everything he's done but Million $ Baby)
Leo Dicapprio
Liz Taylor

Oh Susan Lucci.... I love soaps but Susan Lucci has to be the most over the top Soap star there is... she sucks but everyone is afraid to say so.

Also can't stand Leo

Funny how the media kiss up on him, and the only movie I can think of is "Titanic", which isn't even a good movie to begin with and only famous because he appealed to teenage girls like Zac Efron & David Cassidy

Ever see "This Boy's Life" starring he and Robert DeNiro and...I think Ellen Barkin?  I thought is was a compelling story and well acted by all.  Although Leo's voice was a little squeeky in places in this movie.  ;D

When Leo was a kid he did alright but I think working with DeNiro affected him some how. Its like he's gone all squinty as if squinting in a scene is acting.... used mildly yes but used repeatedly it just over acting.

Oh Christopher Walken- I don't get the obsession with him but maybe I just don't like him because his initials are CW  ;D (If you don't get it you haven't been paying attention to some of my posts  ;) -*cough* veronica mars *cough*

And Willem Dafoe is totally overrated.  He nearly ruined the first Spiderman movie.
