Actors You Just Can't Stand

The problem with putting him in All-American hero type roles is that he reads so much as a smarmy douche that I just don't buy him in them.

I haven't followed Wahlberg's career, but this. There was some retrospective show I was watching once where they were talking about '90s songs, and they showed that video for "Good Vibrations", and all these women were talking about how hot Wahlberg looked in the video and everything.

Meanwhile I'm sitting here being turned off by how he so obviously thinks he's hot stuff and his whole "obnoxious frat boy" look.

It's kind of like how Adam Devine keeps getting cast as the likeable Joe Schmoe next door (similar to Jack Black or Seth Rogen a decade ago) but his face is so incredibly punchable.

I thought all of Adam Devine's characters were smarmy douches.

I am perhaps embarrassed about this (or not, I don't have a lot of use for shame), but those Calvin Klein ads really helped me figure some stuff out.

Bradley Cooper - I always thought he was a bit dry and humorless but I really went off him during last seasons award rounds with that whole fiasco with Lady GaGa. Don’t get me wrong I found her insufferable but I think that’s par for the course with her. I just think he came off as such a tool. Not to mention disrespectful to his partner and mother of  his child. The whole thing was just so inappropriate and he got so carried away in the praise and popularity of the both of them it’s like he lost touch with reality and how moronic they both ended up coming across.

OK, this may be an UO but here goes. I'm not quite of the 'can't stand' POV but more of a 'side-eye' one re Demi Moore. Yes, I know she's made some rather sensational claims in her autobio and I'm not disputing any of them. Moreover, I feel sorry for those actual times she was indeed victimized (especially in childhood and adolescence).

 However; she seems to have a very high opinion of herself to the point of being utterly humorless. Also, she seems to be unwilling to accept that the time has come to play older characters rather than trying to  pretend she's still the hottest young woman in any room she walks into! Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Jessica Lange and even Cher have managed to keep their careers afloat by embracing playing interesting older characters rather than holding out to keep playing hot ingenues decades younger than their actual ages! Regardless, I hope she finds her peace and learns to deal with her demons via non-destructive means (and I'm glad she and her daughters seemed to have grown closer in recent years despite near tragedies that happened).

Is it bitchy of me to hope that the rise of Florence Pugh will finally make Chloe Grace Moretz obsolete? I think she's going to wind up having the acclaimed career that people thought Chloe was going to have.

I can't really explain it, but god I cannot stand Chloe. Hollywood's determination to make her a thing when she's flopped so many times is absolutely inexplicable to me.

When she was in her late 40's, she starred in a movie called Keeping Up with Jonses, about a fake family funded by marketers to product place in a real neighborhood. Her character said something about eventually wanting her own real kids and family, and I was like, "What? Am I supposed to pretend this woman isn't nearing 50?"

So are you saying she the Sally Kirkland of the New Millenium? Yeah Miss Kirkland is okay but despite her onetime Oscar nomination Anna (1987), I've never considered her 'all that' despite Hollywood trying to hype her for decades.

As the trailer to The Prom reminded me, James Corden.  Even if his "awww, shucks, I'm just a goofball" persona wasn't just an act, I'd still dislike him, but knowing how nasty he is off-camera just pushes it into utter loathing.

But that's not really happening, though. While she still has movies and TV shows on her IMDB page, they are not big projects. Marvel and DC aren't knocking on her door. She's not being offered any other big blockbusters. She mostly acts in small projects.

Well, IMO Jon Voight seems to have joined the 'better to be silent and be thought of as a dim fool than to speak and be thought of as an alarmist  and inane kook' club. I'll leave it at that.

Just joined?  Nah, he's been in that club so many years I'm pretty sure he's on the Board.

Well, IMO the latest stuff put out Mr. Voight was a bit much- even for him!

He and the-then child performer Ricky Shroder starred in the 1979 remake of The Champ!  If those two  ever decided to do a sequel, they could call it The Chumps

I'm not sure this is the place to post, because it's not that I can't stand her, but Emily Blunt is one of the dullest--if not the dullest--actresses I've ever seen.   

Granted, I've only seen her in a few movies--Sicario, The Girl on The Train, and A Quiet Place, but in all of those movies she was just.....dull.  And she always looked bored.

Well, to be fair, I think that's just her face.
