I've never liked one of his movies and it seems like he's made the same movies over and over but people still keep watching them.

What a pretentious, Know-it-all windbag. To say what he does is "News" is offensive to all the hard-working objective reporters of the world. He is the epitome of self-serving jackass in my book.

I guess her first song rubbed me the wrong way and I'm just not a fan of her voice.

Talentless Hack. And apparently yet another "singer" trying to cash in on girl on girl action.

Not a fan at all. Some of her movies are okay in spite of her, but I don't get her appeal.

Even all done up she still appears skeletal to me.

Picture of Angelina Jolie

Rate:

NOT because she ruined Twilight.
I haven't liked her since Speak. I find all her annoying little quirks to be obnoxious rather than endearing. The blinking, jittery acting, over emoting, and lip chewing, not to mention all the stupid little hand gestures. She always plays the same character so I've never seen any range from her.

Plus, she resents Twilight for making her famous. Probably shouldn't have chosen actor as a career then.

Because I don't want people to think I looked for the worst picture of her, here's one of her smiling. She looks better, but these are few and far between.

She's pretty, sometimes but she's so thin it scares me.

I hate it when people resent the things that make them famous.
tersanay's rating:
Rate:
He scares me. What can I say. It's hard to like a guy that seems like he'd molest you if given the chance. He comes across like a jerk in interviews and I've never really liked him in anything I've seen him in (which admittedly isn't a whole lot).

I know people hate this one but it's my personal opinion.
Give me Tommy Lee Jones or Anthony Hopkins over him any day.
tersanay's rating:
Rate:


She can be pretty sometimes, but I find her acting emotionless and boring.

Edit: I still am not a fan but I've given her a thorough chance. She's almost off this list.
tersanay's rating:
Rate:

These are the celebs who I can't figure out why people like them. I mean intellectually I get that at some point someone found them attractive or interesting but that I myself don't get it. I wish them all the best (except maybe Kristen) but just curious why people like them.

Remember, it's just my opinion. Not trying to make people mad.

I don't think this is a very nice list but I will agree on number 10. However, it seems like you couldn't find an ugly picture of Zooey, she's very pretty.
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at Jun 16 4:12
Before you post a comment, please read the about this list. I'm interested in why people like these people and am interested in broadening my horizons. I myself don't understand their appeal, but I don't expect everyone to agree with me. If you would like to reccommend somthing or agree then feel free, but please don't just insult me. I'm entitled to my opinion.
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at Jun 16 5:00
i thought i was entitled to my opinion too. i don't dislike any one just because they don't live up to my expectations. i just don't care to see people insulted either. saying get over yourself --is not an insult-- its good advise- i got over myself long ago. --broadening your horizons involves acceptance of other opinions and behavior-- there are a lot of fish in the sea, all colors and species and actors for every taste.
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at Jun 16 10:34
Exactly my point. And your comment did nothing to broaden my horizons except to make me feel like just because I myself don't like someone or something I'm somehow a bad person. Sorry, we all have things we don't like in this world and I was just sharing mine in hopes that someone might help me like them. This isn't just a bashing list, it's a "try to help me see them your way" list. I've already recieved several recommendations on movies to watch and am willing to give it a try. And get over yourself is an insult no matter how you think you meant it.
Posted: 8 years, 2 months ago at Aug 14 15:58
I like zooey, but I agree with you when you say that Emily is much better.
Posted: 8 years, 1 month ago at Aug 23 12:52
I agree with a lot of these people, others I just don't care about, but I do like Keira Knightley. I think she is beautiful just too skinny and I loved her in Pirates of the Caribean
Posted: 8 years ago at Oct 13 6:41
I have no idea who 1 and 12 are and have only ever seen, one Nicole Kidman movie, the Batman one and I only ever watched that once in cinema's when I was a child

I don't like Will Feral either
;P
Posted: 8 years ago at Oct 13 15:52
I agree with Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel....But no one else..... okay list though.....wont say i hate it....cuz i don't.......:) :) :) :) U shud check out that list where the guy/gal goes that colin farrell hasn't showered since he's been born! LOL! How about Michael Cera?
Posted: 8 years ago at Oct 13 19:39
@Vivica, I guess I can't get past the fact that she's a homewrecker. I know she does a lot of humanitarian things and I totally respect that, but she built her life by tearing apart someone else's and she's not even modest aobut it. I was totally turned off by her when she said she couldn't wait to show their kids Mr. and Mrs. Smith cause that's where they fell in love when he was married to another woman at the time.

And for the record, I'm not a Jen Aniston fan.

Hey, No Knocking Off Zooey Deschanel... She Is Amazing!
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Feb 27 9:39
OK, please don't feel the need to defend yourself. You weren't insulting anyone. Your list is called "I don't get it." Not "I hate the ground that these terrible people walk on." You are not insulting anyone...merely stating that you don't understand the appeal. I myself don't understand the appeal of many of these, and therefore, this has earned my vote. Of course...I also have an openly insulting hate list out there, so I'm not one to make comforting remarks! Sorry!

GOD, I totally agree with you.

What is Mr Nicholson doing in this list??
Posted: 7 years, 3 months ago at Jun 24 18:33
I agree with most of these (I do find Will and Seth usually funny) and I like that you DON'T hate Kristen for Twilight which is a refreshing change, but I'm sick of people calling Keira 'too' thin. The girl cannot help how God made her. People throw tantrums left and right when you call a chubby or fat celebrity (Mae Whitman, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt who ironically used to gush all the time about how she loved staying fit and healthy) exactly what they are (chubby or fat). It's so hideously hypocritical it makes me sick.

and Surey- my GOD too =)
Posted: 7 years, 3 months ago at Jun 25 4:32
I guess we can agree to disagree about Kiera Knightley. I think the same way that a celebrity with curves can diet to be stick thin, a thin celebrity can eat a little more to have a more healthy figure. It's about choices. God made me to be a little thick around the middle but that doesn't mean I have to be. In my opinion Kiera is scary thin and no matter how natural she says it is I think it promotes an unrealistic idea of how women should look.

And for the record I am a proud lover of curves and thick girls. I liked Jennifer Hudson better before the weight loss and think Jessica Simpson and Scarlett Johanson, while overrated, are beautiful examples of a woman's body.
Posted: 7 years ago at Oct 3 0:02
I pretty much agree with this list.
Especially on the Sarah Palin thing.

I like Zooey Deschanel a lot. She isn't
the best actress, but there are far worse
out there. I just like her style, big blue
eyes, and her music.

And I like Jack Nicholson as an actor, I think
he's very talented. He is very scary, also though.
His facial expressions/gestures and such are what
really get me, with him though.

I agree with all others just not particularly those
two. So good list. :P
Posted: 7 years ago at Oct 3 16:39
I think it is a great list and I agree for the most part with all of them except Jack. Jack has to me proven over the years to be a terrific actor and person. Personally I like Katy's voice (and looks) but the huge stardom that has fallen on her I don't get. Keira in my opinion is so popular because of her exotic look, she is WAY to skinny I agree. Nicole is merely average, same with Angelina, she has big boobs and I think that and the movie Gia put her on the map. Also who her Dad is didn't hurt. Not really sure about exactly how to put in to words Bill OReilly! His is beyond awful, a womanizer,a two faced piece of shit and a terrible person on all levels!

Great list Tersanay.

Jack just creeps me out.
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Nov 16 9:17
I like Jack Nicholson.

I agree that Will Ferrell plays the same chararcter in every movie that he makes, but they are always successful at the box office. He did a drama called Stranger Than Fiction and it flopped, so he went back to his old formula.

I think Vince Vaughn is a good actor. Before making a name for himself in the Frat Pack comedies, he played a lot of bad guy roles in dramatic movies including Norman Bates in the Psycho re-make, which really sucked, but he was especially creepy in The Cell.

I don't get Jolie, either.

I agree with your assessment of Dane Cook.

I think Seth Rogen is funny.

Nicole Kidman is a good actress, but she does appear to be a snooty ice queen in real life.

Sarah Palin is one dumb B. I can't believe anyway takes her seriously, either.

And I agree that Jessica Beil is not that hot.

Posted: 6 years, 8 months ago at Feb 18 2:36
I agree with you about Angelina Jolie being a homewrecker. She completely broke apart a family. I took it more personally than you did because I like Jennifer Aniston. Also, I don't think Jolie's that great an actress.


I also agree with Ke$ha. She's too trashy and vulgar for my taste. Ugh! But looks like she's stopped her attention-seeking ways now. Or is she just planning more? :P
Posted: 6 years, 5 months ago at May 15 5:18
i can't stand will ferrel. but you should watch Elf. it's amazing :D
Posted: 6 years, 5 months ago at May 15 13:50
I've seen parts of it cause they used to show it in the breakroom at work. I wont say I hated it, but I didn't like it either.
Posted: 6 years, 5 months ago at May 19 15:42
i don't agree with 7 11 and 15, but all the rest you got bang on! I HATE KATY PERRY! she can't sing and she has an annoying everything!

ewww i cant stand ke$ha or katy perry. if ke$ha can be a singer then anybody can

You're crazy. Nicholson? Really?
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Aug 6 2:12
Agree with all except for Jack Nicholson. Srlsy tho, wtf!! He's one of the greatest, most talented actors of all time and you don't like him because he's scary? Dafuq.
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Aug 6 5:20
I'm not allowed to have my own opinion. I don't find him all that impressive since he acts the same in every movie I've ever seen him in and he makes me think of those creepy old pedophiles. I can't help how I feel any more than anyone else. I'm sure you hate people I love.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 22 10:15
Tersanay, you of course are entitled to have your own opinion. It just happens to be completely different from most people's opinion.

Jack Nicholson is an incredibly talented versatile actor.
Have you seen The Shining? He's creepy.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest? He's crazy.
Prizzi's Honor? He's the honorable mob henchman.
The Bucket List? He made me bawl my eyes out, and I'm a 44 yr old male.
Batman? Did I say Joker?
A Few Good Man? Most probably his best role ever?

I'm an avid rock/metal fan but I happen to like, horribile dictu, Katy Perry's songs.

Vince Vaughn had quite a few good roles.

Nicole Kidman is one of the most stylish women of Hollywood and has a pretty impressive resume with quite a few memorable roles, I should say. She chose to devote most of her time to her family, and that's understandable.

I would put Sarah Palin onto your list twice. With your other choices for this list I fully agree.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 22 14:02
I will give him credit for A Few Good Men. That was a good movie and he was good in it. But the other's that I've seen were just meh to me. The Bucket List was just fine for having two veteran actors.

Katy Perry has had one song I kind of liked but it's her image when she first came out that made me hate her.

Vince just doesn't do it for me. Ever. Maybe in Dodgeball. I always feel like he's just playing himself.

And Nicole, I'm not sure when exactly I stopped liking her, but somewhere along the line she just started to seem so cold. It's another personality thing for me with her. I don't deny she is a good actress.

And Sarah Palin is almost irrelevant now, which thrills me.
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Oct 29 15:19
Good List! i agree with most, The jack argument has had enough mileage so i wont bother going there. Zooey bothers me, but her appeal is that she picks good movies to be in so you have to see her. Katy Perry is just very overrated, but not completly talentless. The music industry needed a new Britney so they rammed her down our throats faster than we could realize she was only moderatly entertaining.

Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 3 6:45
did you seriously rate Jack Nicholson a 1 because he's "scary"? How can I possibly value your opinion when you do something like that. That's absolutely ridiculous.
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 3 14:03
I am so sick of all you people complaining about Jack Nicholson. I've addressed it like 10 times to people and I've even clearly said here
"I'm not allowed to have my own opinion. I don't find him all that impressive since he acts the same in every movie I've ever seen him in and he makes me think of those creepy old pedophiles. I can't help how I feel any more than anyone else. I'm sure you hate people I love."

I just don't even think he's that good of an actor. With the exception of a few good men I've NEVER liked a movie he was in. That's why he gets a 1 from me. The fact that he creeps me out is just why I don't like him.

I mean, you gave Hannah Montana a 5 and like wrestling and I'm not over here judging you for that and not valuing your opinion. Oh, wait. Now I am.
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 7 19:36
Have you seen "The Shining" ?
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 7 21:03
I don't do scary. That's one of the only ones I feel like he could have impressed me with but I have bad dreams really easy so I tend to stay away from anything too creepy, especially if there are creepy kids in it.

But thanks for the recommendation.
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 7 23:05
Have you seen Chinatown?
Have you seen One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?
Have you seen The Departed?
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 8 17:21
Hated The Departed
Never seen OFOTCN but it's on my too be watched queue so I'll get back to you after that one
Never even heard of Chinatown.
I've only seen 6 movies that had him in it. The others just don't appeal to me and I'm not going to watch them just to please people on here. I work and volunteer and am a writer and don't have time to sit and watch every movie he's ever made just to try to find some I like. If he's in somthing I want to see I wont not see it just to avoid him but I'm just not a fan of him. Get over it.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jan 1 4:21
Ok erm yeah you find Jack Nicolson scary..ok well that's probably because they're the kind of parts he plays. GET IT!?
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jan 3 22:10
Actually, I meant in real life. I've never really seen him in a scary role cause I don't do scary. I find him pervy and creepy in real life. Admittedly I don't actually know him, but perception from interviews and appearances is what I"m using.

Again I say,
"I'm not allowed to have my own opinion. I don't find him all that impressive since he acts the same in every movie I've ever seen him in and he makes me think of those creepy old pedophiles. I can't help how I feel any more than anyone else. I'm sure you hate people I love."

If you would have read the comments you would have already seen that. GET IT!?
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 1 2:42
People do love to jump all over someone without taking the time to get the whole story, don't they? ;P

Personally, I think it's a great list. Anyone who speaks their mind (and does so intelligently, at that) will always have my respect. The way you have fielded the storm of unkind comments here is commendable; even moreso because you're dealing with people who, obviously, didn't bother to read the other comments at all.

I agree with you about most of these, too. I liked Katy Perry's first album but nothing since. I like some of the performances of Jolie but not most of them. I found her role in Gone in 60 Seconds rather good and liked her in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. I do however see your point there.

Vince Vaughn I like. He and Owen Wilson are the only two out of a crowd of comedy actors that usually specialize in stupid comedies that I do like. But I can see how he would rub someone the wrong way.

Kiera Knightley I find both beautiful and talented, though she is startlingly thin. And Jack...well, I can see where Jack would make anyone nervous or creep them out. The guy's got chops - he's not my favorite but he's got chops. Yet everyone raving over The Shining just kills me. I didn't like that movie at all. (lol)

Anyway, I love the list and obviously a lot of others did, too. My vote makes 50!!! ;D
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 1 2:50
You get my vote for including Angelina Jolie and Nicole kidman. Hate them with a passion.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 1 3:05
Agree with you on Bill O' Reilly but I can suggest to put him off the list since there's nothing anyone can say to make him look like a decent human being and because the reason ppl like him is because they eat his bullshit and are as mentally deficient as him. As for the others I think Vince Vaughn is actually not that bad, have you watched Swingers, Old School, Wedding Crashers? He's great on Swingers so if you watch that and still feel the same then there's really nothing that can make you like him as an actor.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 1 3:53
Will Farrell just sucks the humor out of EVERY movie he appears in and Seth Rogan's Jewish slacker shtick just bores me silly.

did you seriously take the time to make an entire list of just bitching about stuff? grow up.i agree with you on some points but im not gonna make a list a bout it.
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at May 30 3:38
Wow, yet another pretentious asshat who wants to act like they don't have time to waste bitching about things. You had time to waste on listal, time to waste reading a list you didn't care about and then time to bitch about my right to bitch about things. Hypocrite.

This is one of my top voted lists and numerous people have created their own. Plus, I made this list over 4 years ago. Pretty sure I grew up without you having to tell me to. Instead the better advice would be to yourself. Get a life or realize that people online could care less what you say. You'll waste a lot less of your precious time.
