This list will be on going,recently I seem to have been unfortunate enough to watch a lot of bad celebrity acting,to qualify for this list you must have starred in entirely bad movies,the odd small part in a good movie does not count.
If movie success was based on good looks and Twitter followers Ashton would be the De Niro of the movie business,unfortunately it’s based on acting talent and charisma,all of his movies are evidence that Kutcher has none of these,to name a few…..

2, Cuba Gooding Jr
OK Cuba your time is up, you have graced us far too long with your terrible acting skills, and im using the word skills very loosely. It all started so well for Cuba back in 91 with Boyz n the Hood, let’s be honest it did for many of those never seen again actors in that movie.
1992 brought us A Few Good Men, now we’re thinking this boy has something. After this movie though the rot started to set in, his choices where clearly altered by pay checks. One that really made my jaw drop was Jumping Jack flash, what the hell was this. I stuck by him for a couple more years where he played smaller roles and did OK jobs. After Jerry Maguire and As Good As It Gets his career choices were desperate. There is only so much you can blame on a director, the guy looks unconvincing what ever he is asked to do. I just wonder how many director’s careers he has ended?
I’m writing to the BFI and asking for a new certification for Cuba movies CA(Cuba Alert) don’t watch if you like acting!!
3. Jennifer Aniston
Everybody loves Rachel from friends,she was funny,attractive and slightly dumb,some people think friends finished years ago,most of it has,but if you are missing your friends,fear not,because Jennifer Aniston performs this character in EVERY movie she makes,you could argue that she has been type cast, but she is not a struggling financially,she should have taken the brave step and ventured into some independent roles which didn’t involve her playing the love interest of some geeky guy who suffers from shyness or low self-esteem.
Reason for enforced retirement request =
Wanderlust,Horrible Bosses,Just go with it,The bounty hunter,The Switch,Love happens,He’s just not that into you,Marley and me,The break up,Derailed,Bruce Almighty,Rock Star,Picture perfect……………………..
Conclusion : She doesn’t have the range or the acting ability,Rachel if we are missing you,we can download Friends at anytime,please stop making the same crap!
4. Eddie Murphy
The man was a legend in his youth,when he was on stage he was dangerous and when he was on-screen he was wild and exciting,full of energy as well as being very funny,now he spends his days making incredibly bad movies,Eddie turns up on-screen but there is no longer any spark,no quick wit,he is just going through the motions each time,please Eddie,give it up and let you classic films be you memory.

5. Dane Cook
When I first came across Dane Cook I was blown away,he was performing as a comedian in front of thousands and connecting with the audience,that’s why it’s surprising that he fails every time to appeal on the big screen,good actors look very natural and let you escape into the story without any hesitation,Dane is a terrible actor who reminds you of a college play, he looks like a man who is performing in a solo scene even when he is surrounded by actors,he does not react to his co-stars,he is just waiting to say his line and finish the scene,if he had not had his success on the stage there is not a chance in hell any director would have cast him.

6. Justin Timberlake
I remember enjoying some of Justin’s solo music back in the early 2000’s, as much as I fought the temptation to box him into the boy band box I was impressed with his collaboration with Timbaland.
When I saw him in Black snake moan I went in with an open mind but the alarm bells started to sound pretty loudly, he would get by as an extra but he has no star quality as a lead actor, his general role to date includes him playing the love interest of a confused or angry lady, he delivers every line with a look of surprise across his face, and if you watch a scene which requires a high degree of emotion Justin fills this with a teenager having a mood swing and not a man a having a breakdown, some people can make the transition from music into film, ( Andre Benjamin) for instance, sadly for Justin he will continue to take roles based on his fame, looks and his music career.
