agree with all everyone has stated.
My list would be shorter to type of those I do respect for their work.

I know his time has come and gone, but I never understood why Dane Cook had such a burst of popularity. Not funny, not talented.

Kristin Stewart was great in Panic Room, but now her dead eye look is stupid.

I liked Cameron Diaz in Being John Malkovich, but otherwise, I don't get how she has a career.

Sharon Stone, one crotch shot and she thinks she's Meryl Streep.

Julia Roberts

In Lindsey Lohan's defense, she showed great acting talent potential when she was a kid playing twins in a remake comedy movie. Her British accent was very good for one so young. If she could ever become clean and sober again perhaps she could reinvent her career and acting talent like Robert Downey Jr. did. What is Dane Cook famous for? I happened to catch him on Comedy Central when he was doing stand-up comedy. Most boring comedian I've ever seen and yet some in the audience acted like they were on laughing gas,...perhaps they'd just gotten high on some good weed. I'd rather ugly, plain, and or average looking actors and actresses who act great than models trying to act (which applies to at least half of Hollywood). If you're a young guy looking to get into acting it seems you must have a 6 pack abs, kicking body, and access to a hair gel factory. If you're a young lady looking to get into acting it seems you must have breast implants, cutting board flat stomach, and bleach blond hair (regardless of your hair's natural color). It would be fantastic if there were young people with such bodies who also had acting chops like Cathy Bates, Meryl Streep, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Spacey, William H. Macy, and F. Murry Abraham for example. I'm sure there are more actors and actresses who actually can act than the ones I labeled above.

I remember an episode of some acting show where they asked this accomplished actor what it is about today's young actors that troubles him ... he said that unlike actors of his generation (Pacino, Matthau, Lemmon, Bogart, etc), today's actors, DeCaprio, Wahlberg, Spacey etc, you can't do imitations of them because they are boring.

Never understood the whole Brad Pitt thing. He looks like he has the mumps and I heard he rarely showers.

Also Matthew McConnaughy...every time I see his leering, tool-ass face, I want to slap it.

Scarlett Jo...why? She's not even that good looking...? What's the deal there?

I was just thinking that I liked Dane Cook in Mr. Brooks with Kevin Costner. Have you seen it? I suppose anyone could have played that part, but I did enjoy the quirkiness of the movie.

And I agree with you on Sharon Stone...so wanted to like her in the beginning but she was in the cheesiest movies...then, you nailed it, one "oh my" shot and she got very popular. What I don't understand now though is that she is hardly ever in any movies but still acts like a diva. I guess image is everything...as long as you think you're awesome, what else matters?

I do like some of the other actors/actresses mentioned but in selected roles. I've grown wary of the over hype, but then there will be a great part and I enjoy it...try not to let the hype get in the way.

Maybe he thinks he smells like roses even after not showering for a week!

I agree with most that've been listed.

One that hasn't been listed is Sandra Bullock. She always plays the same types of characters, I find her kind of irritating and I don't really see her as attractive at all.
