Actress Jennifer Lawrence

Is there an A-list actor or actress you think honestly cannot act? You’re not alone. After someone asked, “Which A-list actors and actresses can’t act?” These were the top-voted responses.

1. Chris Pratt

“Chris Pratt,” replied one. “I like him as Andy on Parks and Recreation and Star-Lord on Guardians of the Galaxy, but he has no actual range. He keeps putting out terrible action star, military tough guy movies that are so one-note and awful. He can only play funny moron types convincingly. It makes me think he’s a funny moron in real life.”

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger

“Arnold Schwarzenegger is an excellent example of an actor whose charisma more than makes up for their not-so-great acting skill.

He’s best as a baddy who regularly spits out one-liners that are cheesy on paper but sound hilarious because Schwarzenegger says them,” another suggested.

3. Gal Gadot

“Gal Gadot. She looks fantastic, but that’s the extent of the talent,” alleged one. Another agreed, “She’s a gorgeous woman, but the only movies she’s made worth the watch are her Wonder Woman movies. She lacks a lot of star quality,” another suggested. Finally, a third argued, “I loved Wonder Woman, but Gal Gadot was terrible in it.”

4. Keanu Reeves

One concerned Redditor warned, “Don’t kill me, but Keanu Reeves.” “Agreed,” said another. “His line delivery is so monotone and sounds like he is in 8th grade and having to read out loud. He can do the physical work and facial expressions, but his vocals fall short.” Despite several people agreeing with this sentiment, even more acknowledged he’s an incredible person, so he gets a pass.

5. Vince Vaughn

“Vince Vaughn reads his lines as Vince Vaughn in every film. He casts himself into roles where he can live out real-life fantasies as if being a Hollywood A-lister isn’t enough,” replied one.

“How cool would it be if my best mate and I got a job at Google, returned to college, or crashed weddings, became the most fantastic guys in the company, on-campus, or at the wedding, and got the girls?” I don’t know; he played a funny teenage girl in Freaky.

6. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

“Dwayne Johnson,” another suggested. “Making the same facial expressions and always being the hilariously buff guy doesn’t mean you embody the character you’re playing.” Another added, “I’ve always thought Dwayne Johnson can’t act. All of his acting roles are just him acting as himself. They all have the same personality.”

7. Diane Keaton

“Diane Keaton. Her only character is Diane Keaton. I just don’t get it. She comes across as an over-actor to me, but I may not be watching the right movies. Father Of The Bride to Marvin’s Room, I get the same impression,” another confessed. She did her thing in Looking for Mr. Goodbar.

8. Seth Rogan

“I’ve said it before, Seth Rogan always plays Seth Rogan in all his movies. He has no depth.” Another agreed, “He is one of those actors whose voice kind of dooms him. With the right makeup, costuming, etc., it seems like he can have a lot of physical range, but then he opens his mouth, and you remember that he is Seth Rogen. No matter what he does in his performance, he will always be Seth Rogen.”

9. Adam Sandler

A final person commented, “Adam Sandler and his entire friend group (Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and others) can’t act that well. His movies are hilarious at times and are entertaining to watch, but their acting isn’t all that impressive.” Several others agreed that Adam Sandler can’t act but is a funny guy.

Uncut Gems, Punch Drunk Love, Hustle, Reign Over Me, and Funny People proved that he could be an incredible actor with the proper script and director.

10. Jennifer Lawrence

“I will get a lot of hate for this, but Jennifer Lawrence is not a good actress. Mystique went from being one of the best and scariest comic book villains to cringe,” someone stated. Finally, another added, “Jennifer Lawrence. She always plays the same role every single time: A strong female character who looks dead inside.”
