Nobody has mentioned Nicolas Cage.
Sorry if I hurt somebody's feelings but I think his acting leaves a lot to be desired. His expression seems to be always the same and his voice is rather flat.
To be honest I have not seen his latest works so he could so he could have improved with time...

I always thought Kevin Costner was okay until I saw 'Thirteen Days' and I heard his attempt at a Massachusetts accent. It was ridiculous. He got on his son about the bad grades on his "repoht caaahhhd"!!!

Gotta give a nod to Nicolas Cage as well. I never understood why he was (is?) so highly regarded.

I won;t say Angelina Jolie is the "worst", but she is highly overrated.

I'm surprised that so many people think that Jennifer Aniston has no class. I actually think she has it in spades, Brad (and yes, Angelina) are the classless ones IMHO.

And yes, Keanu Reeves might not be Oscar winning talent, but WOW what a great looking guy. Plus he has made many movies that I love (Hardball, Devil's Advocate, The Lake House, Walk in the Clouds).

I'm also surprised that so many people think that Kevin Costner is a bad actor. I think he is very talented. Some of my favorite movies (Dances with Wolves, For Love of the Game, Dragonfly, Open Range ) star him. Also I think he is a very good director and has great potential there. Same goes for Ben Affleck---he can act when he is in the right role. And his work as a director last year in "Gone Baby Gone" was amazing.

I have been told that I have strange taste in favorite actors, because my favorite actor is Sylvester Stallone. HOWEVER, I realize that he is not the best actor, just my favorite. My other favorite actors are: Charlton Heston, Denzel Washington, Jimmy Stewart, Tom Hanks and-----yes, when he acting and not in real life---Tom Cruise.

My listing of "worst" are:

Steven Seagal
Paris Hilton
Hayden Christensen
Tara Reid
Jessica Simpson
Jack Black
Ashton Kutcher
