These people, according to me alone, are the most hated celebrities. And not just any celebrities, but movie actors. Those “famous for being famous” people do not matter to me or anyone else, so they do not count. They have done nothing anyway to attribute to their fame; the media is the cause in their case.
My list of actors, however, have no real reason to be hated. I just hate them. Too smug or too perfect, I cannot say. But I hate them. Here are a few.
First on my most hated celebrities list is Matthew Broderick. He was cute as a kid, and was loved in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off because he came off as an annoying jerk that always had his way. The problem is that it carried into his adult years and he is hard to take seriously. Seeing him as Inspector Gadget just makes you want to punch him in the face.
He can only play one type of character, and dressing him up in any other outfit does not change that fact. For example, how of earth did he manage to grab the lead role for Glory? He does not come off as tough at all! He comes off as a whiny man-child, like he did in movies like Godzilla or Election. In Election though, he was a perfect fit. His natural character of trying to seem tough but actually being weak made the whole movie, and the place he wound up at the end was perfect.
Another softie that tries to come off as hard is Shia LaBeouf. He has got to be one of the most hated celebrities. He was cast well for Transformers, where he played a scared and puny kid who was not very slick with the ladies. Now jump to that Indiana Jones Crystal Skull movie and he is all of a sudden a bad-ass? Or in that train-wreck sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. And to think that someone like him could bag a cutie pie like Carey Mulligan (from An Education fame) makes my blood boil. But at least he is not a non-talented piece of crap like…
Another clueless-faced punk kid that made a great character during the 80s, but now comes off as an annoying douche. His legacy works for movies like Hot Tub Time Machine, but fails for films like Runaway Jury. Are we really supposed to believe that this idiot-looking guy who looks like he God slapped him across the face with the moron-stick somehow has the ability to sway a jury single-handedly? I mean sure, we will always remember him for Sixteen Candles, but come on. The next time he gets hired for a movie, someone needs to prank-phone-call the casting director and impersonate Cusack and say that he needs to cancel to get a rhinoplasty or something. Or an entire-face-plasty.
