I've been planning to do this for a while but I never really got around to it. Surprisingly, it took A LOT more thinking for me to decide for my worst actresses list than it did my best actresses list. Acting is amazing for some people and unfortunately some lack any ability to act at all. And this will be my personal opinion on who I consider to be the worst and the best actresses I've ever seen. Now, keep in mind that this is all opinion based and feel free to create your own article on this subject. Also, eventually I will be doing my article of my top 10 best and worst actors, although that will be much harder than this one is for some reason. I will provide a link to each actress acting and please comment.

The Worst

link
She's not a very well-known actress and I think people are lucky for not knowing her because her acting is horrendous. I'll name one reason everyone will think so, though not a good reason for thinking she's a bad actress, she's a Disney Channel star. MOVING ON! She's an absolute HAM in everything she does. Anytime she tries to be subtle she fails at it because she always has to be over the top. Yes, I know she does Disney Channel comedy and they do tend to be over the top with the humor (for better or for worse, depending on how it's done) but even when she's not trying to be funny she's over the top. I mean, she's an even bigger HAM than Miss Piggy, and that's the QUEEN of hammy performers and is an actual pig for crying out loud. She can never deliver a line convincingly because she always has to try to steal the show and fails miserably at it. Her voice delivery is over the top, her facial expressions are over the top, and her movements are over the top. Horrible actress and was only able to get the part on Shake It Up because she's a great dancer, although that didn't help her much, considering the choreography for the dancing on the show is pretty much basic and takes little effort. The only reason she gets hired for anything was because Disney Channel gave her a name, and that's mainly because most of the stuff she does is Disney Channel related. I mean, Bella Thorne was also an actress on that awful show but she's expanded up horizon and is going outside her comfort zone, even turning down being a main character in the new Scream TV show because she's always wanted to play a death scene. Zendaya, though she has very little acting "talent" to begin with, isn't expanding herself and plays the same freaking character. This shows that she's not very versatile in her acting, which is never a good sign. But at least she shows more effort in her acting than the rest. Yes, she overacts and is still awful but the others pretty much underact (aside from a later actress we'll get to later).

It's really no wonder that Madonna is on this list, since she's never had a single hit movie, has won five Razzies for worst actress, two for worst supporting actress, and worst actress of the century. A lot of times with actors that are both singers and actors, they're either really good at one but also really bad at the other. She's definitely a great singer but unfortunately lacks any talent in the acting department. She's so bad that The Golden Girls made a joke after Dorothy accidentally called a priest a pervert, she said "I'm sorry father. I promise I'll say HAIL MARY until Madonna has a hit movie." She lacks emotion in both her voice and facial expressions, any emotion she has in her voice is just winning, she speaks in a monotone voice, she takes WAY too many breaths between lines, and a lot of the time just seems like she's doing a bad Marilyn Monroe impression. I like Madonna alright but it's definitely no wonder why she's considered to be one of the worst actresses of all time and she does deserve that title but I think the others are just worse than she is.

link
Her acting is absolutely HORRIBLE! She's emotionless and dead, she lacks the ability to do facial expressions, when she does it's unconvincing, her voice is always monotone and lifeless, she can't even scream convincingly, lacks charm and charisma, and always takes huge breaths between lines. She's untalented and I have no idea how she manages to get hired for anything. I mean, she's not talented or even pretty. When an untalented actress like Megan Fox gets hired it's because of their looks, which at least gives the excuse that the director only liked her looks. However, when a homely girl that is untalented gets hired, it makes no sense. If you think I'm being too harsh on her, well, do you know how Kristen Stewart's performance as Bella Swan was like, yet Kristen can still act when given a decent script? Yeah, Sophie's acting is like that (though slightly less awful), except that she NEVER gives a good performance. Her acting is basically like watching Bella from Twilight, except for the occasional unconvincing emotions. She's not higher because the others (minus one) are even more lifeless than she is.

link
Out of all the Disney Channel stars that have been hired, she's definitely the most untalented, especially when it comes to acting. Yes, I've said that I prefer overacting over underacting but she makes The Joker look subtle with how awkward her acting is. She has over the top reactions, lacks and charisma and stage presence, and doesn't seem to know how to deliver a line. I mean, whenever she tries to do her lines she starts of with one and then becomes something completely different. And it's not just with a line that has several sentences, she does this even when it's just one simple sentence, even one that barely qualifies as a sentence. No line she ever delivers is convincing and it completely awkward. It's not just when she does comedy scenes or shows, she does this even when she's doing serious scenes. I'm surprised Disney Channel even hired her because she's not talented or even very pretty. I mean, she's not ugly or anything and is definitely better looking than Sophie, but I'm just always surprised when an untalented actor/actress that also isn't good looking gets hired. I mean, when an attractive actor/actress that is untalented gets hired it makes sense, since Hollywood is very vain and shallow. It looks like Hollywoods tastes have really gone downhill. It's surprises me because, while I don't really watch Switched At Birth, Laura's sister, Vanessa Marano, is really talented. I guess Vanessa got all the talent. So yeah, her acting is horrendous but the others are just SO LIFELESS to the point where I can't take them seriously as human beings, or at least ones that are still living.

Yeah, everyone pretty much cringes when they hear that Megan Fox is going to be in any movie, except for guys who judge with their penis instead of with their brains. The only reason she gets hired for anything she's in is because of her gorgeous looks and her sex appeal. This is definitely clear when Michael Bay of all people knows that that's all she's good for in any movie, so he just has her do just that, not that Michael Bay would've gave her good direction either way. Her sex appeal is also shown within her acting when she pretty much just breaths heavily like she's trying to seduce someone but also sneers, to appear dangerous. However, what little effort she gives isn't a convincing acting performance but rather someone who does the same thing a porn star does, aside from being naked, much to the disappointment of the Bayformers fans. She's emotionless, just sneers, breaths heavily, and isn't convincing in anything she does because she puts SO LITTLE effort into her acting abilities. If she gave as much effort into her acting as she does in her trying to appear sexy, she might actually give a decent performance. She basically just plays the same character and isn't versatile or charismatic. However, the others are even MORE emotionless than she is and are basically just playing themselves (and not very well at that).

link
Pretty much everyone knows how awful of an actress she is after watching Sharknado. Admittedly, it was an awful movie that didn't have much going for it, but her performance in this movie is pretty much the same in all of her movies. Horrible facial expressions, poorly done projection, cannot deliver a line convincingly or have any real emotion, and always sounds SO WHINY! Her acting is completely horrendous and clearly only gets hired for her looks, like most of the actresses on this list. So if you ever hear she's in a movie, whether or not the movie is good, she will always give a horrible performance that makes children in a preschool play look like Hugh Jackman. She's not higher because, surprisingly, she's more human than the others.

link
You know basically everything I said about Megan Fox? Well, Pamela does the same but takes it to an even BIGGER extreme. She's so plastic, fake, and robotic in her acting, to the point where a robot is more human than she is. Her good looks and sexy body are the only reasons she gets hire, since unfortunately a lot of directors thing more with their penises than they do with their brains, much like how women (the only ones who read this trash) who read Fifty Shades of Grey judge it through the orgasms they have in their vaginas than they do their brains. Aren't we humans (especially ones making any forms of entertainment) a shallow and superficial species? Anyway, Pamela is known for giving one of the worst (if not THE WORST) performance in any comic book movie with her role in Barb Wire (if you want more info on that, go watch the Nostalgia Critic review of it). It pretty much describes all her roles, being just a sex object and never really a character but just a walking Barbie doll in REALLY TIGHT outfits that she CLEARLY can't breath in. She's so emotionless and clearly never really gives a crap about her performance, unless she's playing a lifeless zombie, but even then it's unconvincing. She's not higher because.... well, just take a look at my top three and you'll see why.

Yes, you heard right, Nicki Minaj has done some "acting." Thankfully she hasn't done much and let's hope it stays that way, her music is bad enough. First, I must share an unfortunate fact about the movie she was in called The Other Woman. Cameron Diaz, a very talented actress that I thought did really good in the clips I've seen of her, won a Razzie in this movie for worst actress but Nicki didn't even get nominated for worst supporting actress. WHAT THE HELL? Her performance is so fake, plastic, unconvincing, and she's basically playing herself and not very well. Plus her nasally voice doesn't exactly help her acting abilities. She has no real emotions and can't deliver a line convincingly. She's like a little kid trying to talk like someone from Flushing Queens and failing MISERABLY at it! On the plus side, her acting was so bad that I didn't even notice how HUGE her ass is, which isn't an easy job considering how ENORMOUS her butt is. However, the other two make her look lifelike.

link
Kim has pretty much made a name of herself as one of the most untalented celebrities in ALL of existence. Anytime she makes an appearance in a movie she always gets a worst supporting actress award. It's no wonder, her acting is fake, plastic, and lifeless just like she is. Surprisingly she's acted in some other things (though not as a main role for OBVIOUS reasons) and is always the same and everyone always says how awful she is and they're right. People, including Kim herself, make fun of the fact that she's untalented and yet she still got hired for acting parts. Are people really that desperate for views they'll stoop THIS LOW? I don't think I really need to explain much about her horrible acting because I think the clip and the name Kim Kardashian pretty much speak for themselves. However, believe it or not, there is one actress who is actually WORSE!

link

Paris Hilton, also known as the original Kim Kardashian. Yeah, I'm serious, Kim actually modeled herself after Paris, who also acted as a "role model" to Kim. Unfortunately, there was no one there to give either of them any acting lessons. She's pretty much considered to be one of the most untalented people of ALL TIME! Her acting is very similar to Kim's, except that she puts even less "effort" into her performance. She clearly doesn't give a crap about her performance or that she's untalented because she knows she'll get hired for whatever she wants to because she's rich. Whenever she's in anything, she wins a Razzie for worst actress and it's no surprise. She's not convincing as a human being and will ALWAYS be the WORST actress of ALL TIME!

The Best

link
Ever since I first saw her in the movie Titanic, I thought she was amazingly talented. I haven't really seen very many of her movies but I REALLY should. I've seen her in Titanic, Hamlet, and Divergent. She was amazing in all of them! She has so much emotion in her while also being classy and dignified in Titanic and Hamlet. She seems together but inside is truly losing her mind and you can see it. In Divergent, I'll be honest that I thought she would play a character that was a secret agent to help the Divergents (I've never read the books) and I was surprised that she was actually the villainess. But surprisingly she was fantastic as a villain. She is reserved but can show emotion and has such class, style, and charisma in her role as a character I hate. She can be subtle but also steal the show. There's no denying she's talented and I find that a lot of people that hate on her (along with some others on this list) simply because they're popular and hate that just because. Anyway, she's not higher because the other show more emotion in my opinion.

link
Probably the most underrated actress on this list and it's such a shame because she's amazingly talented. She's a British actress (you'll see a lot of those on this list) that's best known for her roles in Hollyoaks as Hannah Ashworth (where the won an award for best actress) and Once Upon A Time In Wonderland as Anastasia Tremaine/The Red Queen. In Hollyoaks, her character struggles with anorexia and you get to see SO MUCH emotion in her face and voice (though a lot of the times it's hard to understand her because her accent was so thick back then) that you can really feel the emotional struggle she's going through that you just wanna cry. As Anastasia, at first people thought she was terrible because she acted fake, emotionless, and over-the-top but that was just her character and it really explains why she acts that way when you get to know her character. She's very versatile with her acting while also having a lot of style, charisma, and is always convincing with every line she gives. She can be strong but also vulnerable, along with being subtle but also powerful. She's amazingly talented and I wish she got more attention for her talents. She's not higher because I simply think the others are more talented.

link
Yeah, you should figure that she'll be on a best actresses list, despite the fact that Tim Burton turned her from a talented actress that played a variety of different roles into a talented actress that pretty much plays the same character (usually an eccentric, gothic, stoner, and homeless looking person). But even with a lot of ridiculous roles she's been in, she's amazingly talented can clearly has a lot of fun with whatever she does while putting her heart and soul into the role. She's never given a bad performance. She's subtle but can also be powerful and insane, she's entertaining, she can have a lot of emotion in not only her face but also her eyes and voice, versatile, is always convincing with her line delivery (even with ridiculous dialogue), has a lot of class in her performance while also being real, and has so much charisma and style to her. She's just an amazing actress! However, I feel like the others have better facial expressions and take their careers more seriously.

link
You'll notice by now that there will be quite a few Once Upon A Time actors but they're just SO TALENTED! It's hard not to put them here! She's so talented, has great facial expressions, perfect projection of her voice, and is just such a natural. I love how a lot of times you don't have to count on her talking for her to tell you what she's thinking but her facial expressions just speak loudly enough for you. A lot of her characters come across as tough and badass girls but also have a lot of emotions in them that make them human, especially with Emma Swan. She's a strong and independent woman but of course she's not made of stone because it shows that, while her characters don't wanna admit it, she's scared and vulnerable sometimes, like a real human is. She portrays this absolutely flawlessly! I'm looking forward to seeing her as *SPOILER ALERT* the Dark Swan/new Dark One in season 5 of Once Upon A Time because she plays a villain now and the villains are always the ones played by the best actors. *END OF SPOILER* She's an amazing actress but the others just have more style and charisma to them.

link
She's just such a flawless and brilliant actress that does everything perfectly. She has so much emotion, passion, style, charisma, power, strength, and skill in her acting abilities. She really makes me feel sorry for her character Zelena on Once Upon A Time when we get into her backstory and her jealousy of Regina, so much that I wish she'd get her redemption. But she's not just a petty stick in the mud, she plays the villain so perfectly. She knows how evil she is and just relishes in it and loves every moment of it. She knows how to play such a manipulative character and that accent of hers makes her acting have even more style. Yes, she's definitely not like Margaret Hamilton's Wicked Witch of The West but she pretty much took the character and made it something all her own. While I adore the scenes where she plays a villain, I also love the scenes where her character gets to be more vulnerable and shows that villains are human too with emotions and feelings and not just wanting to be evil or whatever. Her performance is just so powerful and brilliant! She's not higher simply because I think the others are more talented.

link
I used to think she was overrated because I saw her in the first Hunger Games movie and she had some pretty poor facial expressions. But I learned more about her character and realized how great she was. Plus, whatever she lacks in her facial expressions as Katniss, she make up for with her line deliveries and her soulful eyes. Besides Katniss, she can give so much emotion in her face with every role. She gives her DANG HARDEST into every role she does! Some people say she's overrated but I disagree because she truly deserves the attention that she gets with her acting abilities. She's absolutely brilliant in everything she does with her phenomenal acting skills and that's not something that's about to change anytime soon. She's not higher because the others have better facial expressions.

link
Would you believe that after she finished Harry Potter that she took an acting class and considered quitting acting because she didn't feel good enough compared to her classmates? BULL CRAP! She's no doubt one of the best actresses EVER and the most talented of all the Harry Potter cast. She has great facial expressions, shows so much emotion in her face and voice, has perfect line delivery, and is very versatile. No matter what role she's in, I can always take her seriously. She's amazingly talented and I'm happy that Disney chose her to play Belle in the live-action remake of Beauty and The Beast. She'll do amazing! Her acting is just flawless and brilliant! She's not higher simply because the others are better.

link
It's hard to believe that a few years ago people thought she wasn't a good actress and hated her and now she's considered to be one of the best actresses of all time. I've always thought she was a great actress but after Les Miserables, I realized how brilliant an actress she truly is. She shows so much emotion in her face and voice and you can really see the emotional struggle of her characters. She's just such a phenomenal actress that for a while was seen as the same old character but is actually very versatile in her acting when she's given the chance. Everyone knows her best performance is the I Dreamed A Dream sequence of Les Miserables. Even if her voice isn't the prettiest of all the women who have sang it, her version is the best because she shows the most emotion while still sounding appealing to listen to. That is PURE talent right there and she deserves all the awards she's won for that role. She's not higher simple because I find the others to be more talented.

link
Everyone knows how much I ADORE Judy Garland and what a talented singer I think she is but she's also a really talented actress. She really brings her characters to life with so much charm and charisma. She really has a lot of emotion in her characters, which is shown in the link I used for her, along with scenes in The Wizard of Oz. She has so much passion and emotion in both her face and voice and clearly puts all the amazingly talented classic actresses to shame with her amazing acting abilities. She was completely ROBBED at the Oscars by giving the award for best actress to Grace Kelly, who is talented but nothing special, instead of this incredible actress. Such talent and now she's gone forever. Her talent will live on through all the accomplishments with her brilliant acting and singing FOREVER! She's not higher because there is just one actress that is SLIGHTLY better than she is.

link

There is no doubt that Lana is the most talented actress that EVER lived! She deserves a billion Oscars for her acting because it is absolutely flawless, perfect, and brilliant! Everything she does is PERFECT! The emotion, pitch, projection, style, charisma, charming, movements, facial expression, voice, and pretty much everything is absolutely FLAWLESS! She's so incredible that I can't put it into words. Every scene she's in is brilliant! No matter how small or minor it is, she steals the show and turns it into a total masterpiece. Lana just has such a natural ability to do anything and has instant chemistry with any actor she's with. OH WHAT AN ACTRESS! THE BEST ACTRESS OF ALL TIME!
