Annoying actors that need to find other careers

Some of them are just plain untalented, some could potentially have talent but make no real effort, and some have irritating real life personalities.

Michael Cera
Actor, Juno
Canadian actor Michael Cera was born in Brampton, Ontario, to parents who worked for Xerox. His mother, Linda, who is from Quebec, has English, Irish, Scottish, and Dutch ancestry, and his father, Luigi Cera, is Sicilian. Michael is the middle child between two sisters. He was educated at Conestoga Public School...
“ You've had a good run MC, playing the ingenue, soft-spoken nerdy kid. Now you're getting older and it's not so charming anymore. People are getting tired of you playing the same character over and over.

Please, either make a real effort to act or find something else. I have a hunch you'd like something artisan like jewelry design or illustrating books for kids. ” - ryansassy1

Kristin Chenoweth
Actress, Rio 2
Kristin Chenoweth is an American stage, screen and television actress, though, depending on who you ask, Cheno fans may disagree on what her most famous roles are. Since Chenoweth began her career, she has been credited with roles in musicals and plays on and off-Broadway, on various television shows and can be seen in movies on television and the big screen...
“ Egotistical "look at me!" type. I have a theory that the movie You Again was made solely as a vehicle for her to show off her "cuteness" and dancing skills. The problem with that is, she's not the star and it's ridiculous that the wedding coordinator would steal the show from a bride that way. Also, is there any character on TV more annoying than her character on Glee? Get over yourself Kristin. ” - ryansassy1

Kristen Stewart
Actress, Twilight
Though most famous for her role as Isabella "Bella" Swan in The Twilight Saga, Kristen Stewart has been a working actor since her early years in Los Angeles, California, where she was born. Her parents, John Stewart and Jules Stewart, both work in film and television. Her mother is Australian...
“ For the love of all that's holy please learn to CLOSE YOUR MOUTH!
And for the record, blinking, twitching and hair-tugging do not an actress make.

Kristen also reveals herself in interviews as a disconnected, self-involved Emo type whose personality isn't all that different than her Bella character in Twilight...except perhaps more arrogant. Yes, definitely arrogant.

Jonah Hill
Jonah Hill was born and raised in Los Angeles, the son of Sharon (Chalkin), a fashion designer and costume stylist, and Richard Feldstein, a tour accountant for Guns N' Roses. His siblings are music manager Jordan Feldstein and actress Beanie Feldstein. He graduated from Crossroads School in Santa Monica and went on to The New School in New York to study drama...
“ Made a comedy career out of being "the fat guy" in Seth Rogen movies. Now that he's lost the weight, suddenly he's not so funny it would seem. Could it be..he never was?..that his weight was what was "funny" (exploited in other words), not him?

Jonah, if you have any other capacity for acting or comedy (outside of the "funny fat guy" schtick), now's the time to prove it. Otherwise, I suggest you try your hand at writing. I seriously wish you luck dude, just not with the same old Apatow/Rogen acting gig that's allowed you to coast for the past 6 years. ” - ryansassy1

Tom Cruise
Actor, Top Gun
In 1976, if you had told 14 year old Franciscan seminary student Thomas Cruise Mapother IV that one day in the not too distant future he would be considered one of the top 100 movie stars of all time, he would have probably grinned and told you that his ambition was to become a priest. Nonetheless, this sensitive...
“ Egotist.

Wacko.

Wants to play rock star and action star and he's in his 50s.

Please just go away... ” - ryansassy1

Alec Baldwin
Raven-haired, suavely handsome and prolific actor Alec Baldwin was born on April 3, 1958 in Massapequa, New York, and is the oldest, and easily the best-known, of the four Baldwin brothers in the acting business (the others are Stephen Baldwin, William Baldwin and Daniel Baldwin). Baldwin is the son of Carol Newcomb (Martineau) and Alexander Rae Baldwin...
“ "Arric Barwin, the world's greatest actor!"

Hee hee, that's a great movie.

Comes across as sleazy and smug when he doesn't intend to. Thinks he's smarter, sexier, and funnier than he really is.

Career Suggestion: lounge singer, or insurance salesman. ” - ryansassy1

Zach Galifianakis
Zach Galifianakis was born in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, to Mary Frances (Cashion), who owned a community arts center, and Harry Galifianakis, a heating oil vendor. His father is of Greek descent and his mother is of mostly English and Scottish ancestry. Zach moved to New York City after failing his last college class by one point...
“ A character actor (another "funny fat guy" type) for years until he was "discovered" in The Hangover, suddenly his career's hot. But this is not deserved because of actual talent but rather it happened by association, with actors and writers that are much funnier and actually understand something called "comic timing". If Zach shaved his beard and/or lost the excess weight, he wouldn't be "funny" anymore (kind of like what happened to Jonah Hill).

Please quit embarrassing yourself by trying to be a leading man Zach. And if you ever lose the weight, be prepared to find another career altogether; perhaps auctioneer or reality show host. ” - ryansassy1

Shia LaBeouf
Shia Saide LaBeouf was born in Los Angeles, California, to Shayna (Saide) and Jeffrey Craig LaBeouf, and is an only child. His mother is from an Ashkenazi Jewish family, while his father has Cajun (French) ancestry. His parents are divorced. He started his career by doing stand-up comedy around places in his neighborhood...
“ He's really convinced of his own hotness. Built a career on playing the "young punk" character type. Now that he's 26, that's starting to seem less believable, and his acting skills aren't good enough to command meatier leading man roles.

Alternate career suggestion: lawyer. ” - ryansassy1

Megan Fox
Actress, Transformers
Megan Denise Fox was born in Rockwood, Tennessee, to Gloria Darlene (Cisson) and Franklin Thomas Fox, a parole officer. Megan began her training in drama and dance at age 5 and, at age 10, moved to St. Petersburg, Florida where she continued her training and finished school. Megan began acting and modeling...
“ All looks, no talent. Stop trying to convince us you're the brunette Marilyn Monroe; you just come across like you've been drugged/ half asleep all the time. It's sad.

Career suggestion: trophy wife. ” - ryansassy1

January Jones
Actress, Mad Men
January Kristen Jones was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, but for the first decade of her life, she was raised in Hecla, a small town of some 400 souls, in the Mount Rushmore State. She is the daughter of Karen Sue (Cox), a sporting goods store manager, and Marvin Roger Jones, a gym teacher and fitness director...
“ The only acting she is capable of is Ice Queen or Furious. Otherwise, JJ has no personality whatsoever onscreen and is reputed to be antisocial offscreen.

Career suggestion: trophy wife, Budweiser girl ” - ryansassy1

Owen Wilson
Self-proclaimed troublemaker Owen Wilson was born in Dallas, to Irish-American parents originally from Massachusetts. He grew up in Texas with his mother, Laura (Cunningham), a photographer; his father, Robert Andrew Wilson, an ad exec; and his brothers, Andrew Wilson (the eldest) and Luke Wilson (the youngest)...
“ You can tell he thinks he's adorable. Unattractive, yet he manages to snag roles that should go to more talented and better-looking actors. Another one-note actor that only plays himself in every film. Always talks like he has a mouthful of marbles. It's getting old.

Owen Wilson singlehandedly ruined Midnight In Paris for me.

Career Suggestions: country singer or host for a kids show on Nickelodeon ” - ryansassy1
