Daniel Day Lewis, won a shelf load of Oscars but I don't like watching him, thankfully he says he's retired.
Tom Hanks a close second.

The one that plays Hermione in Harry Potter. I'm not exactly alone here but she's worth millions and she's bloody awful at acting.

Clive Owen. He did that film Croupier where he played a sort of detached, emotionless, wooden character. Nobody noticed that this is actually his 'acting' 'style' and promptly cast him in a number of other roles.

Clive Owen is the very worst actor in the world!

He is worse than my eight year old daughter trying to convince me that she really didn't eat her brother's sweets.

Agreed on all so far! Surprising because I would have thought it was a very individual taste thing.
Maybe we're onto something.

Tom Hanks.

He seems to play the same unctuous slightly bemused earnest cnut every time.

Yes! I have always hated Tom Cruise as an actor. He is dreadful and thinks being completely over the top is good acting. He does this thing with his face too (or at least he used to pre-Botox) where he goes through the most astonishing facial contortions to demonstrate his dedication to being Ethan Hunt/Jack Reacher etc.

Watch the scene in the first MI when he's trying to break into someone's computer and the camera is just on his face for about 10 minutes. It's quite disturbing.

Most of the time I agree he is ropey as hell. But occasionally he can produce a good performance (eg Magnolia, though OTT was required so played to his strengths; Collateral; Live Die Repeat).

Saw him in some zombie thing or other. He was properly awful. (although to be slightly fair to him, the whole film was pretty dreadful in all aspects)

Never mind that Clown, as a woman do you think Julia Roberts is an attractive woman?

Same question to you Spanners.

I was going to say I quite like her, but then couldn't think of a film that she has been in that I enjoyed, so.

At the risk of looking like a massive -ist: Idris Elba.

It's not just that he's shit (he is really shit) it's his over-inflated (even by actor standards) sense of his own genius.

There's absolutely NO NEED for Roberts now, because Anne Hathaway exists who looks exactly the same but better and does better acting and is better at being funny and is much more likeable as well. And is better.
