2. For me, Matt Damon in The Departed was so absolutely hateable that even when I see him in things like The Martian, for example, I’m still like “oh, absolutely not. Just leave him there.”
3. Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey as Christian Grey.
4. Kevin Bacon
5. I will never ever forgive Paul Reiser for betraying those Colonial Marines on LV426.
I have hated Paul Reiser since the 80s because of Aliens.
I remember Paul Reiser being on a talk show many years ago after he was in the movie Aliens. He talked to Jay Lemon or whoever it was about how he was doing standup once and before he even started people were booing him because they hated that character so much. He said something to the host along the lines of “they realize I’m not actually that guy, right?”
6. Sam Rockwell in Green Mile was so disgusting and off-putting and perfect in his role that I still don’t like to look at him.
7. Billy Zane in Titanic.
8. Rosamund Pike played a sociopath so perfectly in *Gone Girl* that I have only recently been able to watch shows or movies that she is in.
9. Adam Scott could play the sweetest guy ever but I would still wanta punch his face in because all I'd be able to see was Trevor from the Good Place.
10. I actually had this issue this morning.
I actually had this issue this morning. I was watching Breaking Bad and Jesse's AA leader was on. Perfectly softly spoken gentle man. Hate him on sight. Had to Google him. Turns out he was a character in Sabrina the Teenage Witch that I watched as a child (Zelda's husband) and he was such a bastard I've apparently carried a dormant instinctual hatred for him ever since.
11. Charles Dance in well everything... Golden Child, GOT. He could cure cancer tomorrow and he would still ring villain to me.
12. David Schwimmer
13. JK Simmons
14. Robert Duvall
15. Bryce Dallas Howard
16. Iwan Rheon as Ramsay Bolton. I tell a lie as he was so cute in Vicious as Ash Weston.
He freaked me out so much as Ramsay Bolton that I’m pretty sure I’d cross the street if I happened to see him out walking around. That’s a good actor.
17. How is Joaquin Phoenix not on here for Commodus in Gladiator
Took me quite a while to watch Joaquin Phoenix in anything after Gladiator, his Commodus was so f*****g evil I couldn’t stand him in anything for years
18. Ralph Fiennes in Schindler's List.
Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort also!
I've been scared of him all my life. I was so happy to see him play such a different character in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
19. Edward Norton
20. Tom Felton reportedly gets a ton of hate for his portrayal of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series.
But also a super chill dude in real life.
21. Jack Nicholson did such a good job as Jack Torrance that he gives me the creeps every time I see his face now.
22. Doug Hutchison
23. Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith
25. John Lithgow was so terrifying in Dexter that I kept expecting him to murder somebody in The Great British Bake Off.
26. Marcia Gay Harden
27. Jesse Plemons
28. Kiefer Sutherland
29. Chace Crawford as The Deep in The Boys. I see him in actor interviews and get the heebie-jeebies even though I know it’s just a character.
30. Angela Kinsey
I've never seen her in anything but The Office, but it's always such a mind‐f**k when I see an interview or something with Angela Kinsey and she's smiling and seems somewhat likeable.
I got to meet her at a convention once, and she is incredibly sweet IRL. So are Oscar Nuñez and Brian Baumgartner.
I went to the convention dressed as Dwight and, when it was time for my picture with Angela, she exclaimed “Dwight!” Then she told me she was going to go “full Angela” for the photo, and she did.
Brian was extra careful to make sure I got all the photos I wanted with him. We had already taken three or so when he asked me if I was sure I got everything I wanted with him.
All three of them are super nice people.
31. Lena Headey in GOT. She's actually super nice when I've seen interviews but damn she was too perfect as Cersei.
32. Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and as Kai Winn in "Deep Space Nine".
33. Jason Isaacs
34. Dean Morgan
35. Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring in Breaking Bad and as Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian.
When I saw Giancarlo Esposito in Community, I just about sh*t myself in fear.
36. Christoph Waltz in Inglorious Bastards.
See his role on Basterds influenced my perspective of him so much I spent the entire movie waiting for him to betray Django and when the credits rolled and he hadn’t my mind was in denial
I loved that movie because of him, but unfortunately if I ever see or hear him in something I am like this is the bad guy ... he did is sooo good!
37. Imelda Staunton, Mrs Umbridge in Harry Potter.
Honestly the biggest challenge for any new HP series is going to be matching the casting of the movies. Imelda Staunton is one of many who was absolutely perfect for her character and it's going to be hard to buy anyone else in the role.
I can't unsee Umbridge as her, even after reading the books again. She encapsulated Umbridge so well.
38. For me, it’s Joffrey Baratheon played by Jack Gleeson.
The ironic thing is I read Jack Gleeson is one of the kindest people and is active in volunteer efforts. I watched an interview where his co-star Sophie Turner said he was the greatest guy.
39. Samuel L Jackson in Django Unchained. DiCaprio had a certain insane charisma to him in that movie, not Jackson. Perfectly portrays someone who sold out their own.
40. Tobias Menzies
41. Kirsten Dunst
Good actors don't just portray characters; they become them. Through their performances, they forge connections that can make us forget we're watching a play of light and shadows on a screen.
It's in these transcendent moments that we lose ourselves in the story, and the magic of cinema truly comes alive. The ability of a movie to make us believe, even for just a brief time, that the impossible is possible, that dreams can be realities, is nothing short of miraculous, and it's what keeps us coming back to the theater, time and time again.
