We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which great actors have landed horrible roles. Here's what they had to say:
1.Robert De Niro as Lieutenant Colonel Richard "Dick" Kelly in Dirty Grandpa (2016)
"I love silly, underdeveloped comedy... but this was painful to watch. De Niro has done some good comedy, but Dirty Grandpa almost feels like a bad spoof of a bad comedy."
More
2.Jeremy Renner and Gabrielle Union as Ned and Rachael in Neo Ned (2005)
Suggested by: logostones
In this romantic drama, Jeremy Renner played a young white supremacist while Gabrielle Union played a woman who believes she is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.
More
3.Al Pacino as himself in Jack and Jill (2011)
"Who would have thought it would be so hard to play yourself and make it fun? He just didn't fit into the movie. Although for the Dunkaccino commercial it almost made it worth it in the end.”
More
4.Adam Sandler as Jack and Jill Sadelstein in Jack and Jill (2011)
"I don't know what he was thinking making this film. It was terrible."

5. Meryl Streep as Mary Fisher in She-Devil (1989)
"I love Meryl Streep's weird comedy, but things like this and Death Becomes Her feel pretty inferior to what she's known for."
More
6.Emma Watson as Sam Button in The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)
"Her American English sucked and, well, her performance was okay by my friends, but after hearing her American accent, I lost interest in the film."
More
7.Emma Watson as Belle in Beauty and the Beast (2017)
"I don't care what people say, she's a great actress and I really enjoyed the film, but IDK... her character could have been done better."
More
8.Millie Bobby Brown as Madison Russell in Godzilla (2019) and Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)
"Apart from the special effects, I find the plot and basically everything else about the films to be either very strange or sloppy and just not thought out. She's a great young actress on TV shows and while I don't like the films, she enjoys her performance in them and I wish she would do a better film project that showcases her talents more."
More
9.Viola Davis as Aibileen Clark in The Help (2011)
"She's a great actress, but this movie, ugh. I thought it was more about black nannies in America than white people's problems."
More
10.Jennifer Lopez as Ricki in Gigli (2003)
"That turkey line that Jennifer Lopez did... totally cringe."
—akatb720
Released by Sony Pictures
11.Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne and all the other actors in Jupiter Ascending (2015)
"It's the worst movie I've ever seen."
-selap
Warner Bros.
12.Sir Patrick Stewart as a poop emoji in The Emoji Movie (2017)
"He played the poop emoji. THE poop emoji.”
—eclipsecat14
Released by Sony Pictures
13.Every actor in Cats (2019)
"For me, it was the moment Sir Ian McKellen started licking milk. What kind of blackmail did someone put on these people to get them to make this film?”
More
14.Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan in the Twilight movies
"I appreciate the show for making it as famous as it deserves, but holy shit it's a mess. In the first film alone, her love interest haunts her character, emotionally manipulating her and isolating her from other people. The rest of the series ends in a mess of abuse, further emotional manipulation, and inappropriate 'relationships' (e.g. Jacob and Renesmee).”
More
15.Jamie Dornan as Christian Gray in 50 Shades of Gray (2015)
"I know 50 Shades of Gray gave Jamie Dornan the opportunity to do other films that he really cared about, but man... those films were so bad. But he's so good. Don't look, look! He's brilliant !"
More
16.Scarlett Johansson as Francesca Curtis in The Perfect Score (2004)
"I'm not saying the movie was a total flop, because it wasn't per se ... but it didn't live up to my expectations for her because I think she's a really good actress."
More
17. Penélope Cruz as Valentina Valencia in Zoolander 2 (2016)
"She's an amazing actress and has made some incredible films, both in English and in Spanish. She even has an Oscar! So it amazes me that she keeps agreeing to such questionable roles as the stereotypical hot woman.”
More
18.Natalie Portman as Isabel in Your Highness (2011)
“Natalie Portman really felt out of place in Your Highness. It's a stoner comedy. She won the Oscar for Best Actress for Black Swan a month and a half before that movie came out.”
More
19.Will Smith as Daryl Ward in Bright (2017)
"This movie wasn't good, but Will Smith did his best to make it good."
- embarrassing mistakes
More
20. Robert Downey Jr. as Dr. John Dolittle in Dolittle (2020)
"He gave one of the most entertaining performances as Iron Man in 11 years, so it's amazing that he has this role with Dr. Dolittle would take over. That accent was bizarre and this movie was one of the worst movies of 2020."
More
21.Melissa McCarthy (as Michelle Darnell) in The Boss (2016)
"I love Melissa McCarthy. She's incredibly talented and versatile, but The Boss is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I couldn't even finish it. Just sad and also very boring.”
More
22.Ben Kingsley as Guru Tugginmypudha in The Love Guru (2008)
"I'll never understand how they got Ben Kingsley to star in 'The Love Guru.' This movie was disgusting and just not funny, fun way to make money or what."
More
23.Saoirse Ronan as Melanie Stryder/Wanderer, aka Wanda in The Host (2013)
"She's such a phenomenal actress, but this is by far the worst role I've seen her in. The film was spasmodic and boring and just plain bad. Since then, thank goodness, she's made much better decisions."
More
24.George Clooney as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman & Robin (1997)
“All of his other films and TV shows have been so good. He even apologized for being in the worst Batman movie."
More
25.Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews in Divergent (2014)
"She is an amazing actress but I was so disappointed to see her in a role like this that doesn't show her amazing skills."
-Coffee shop
More
26. And Tilda Swinton as Dianna in Trainwreck (2015)
"Don't get me wrong, I loved the film, but after seeing Tilda play unique characters in film after film, it was harrowing to see her as the stereotypical boss bitch in tan spray and a pencil skirt."
