There are acting performances that make us laugh and cry, and then there are those that make us cringe, laugh for the wrong reasons, and even fall asleep. Many of these poor renditions came from the worst actors and actresses in Hollywood.
The worst actresses, often start in other avenues of fame. Some worked the runway before trying to emote on camera. Others were in the music industry before trying to become an actress. Many of them ended up failing and bailing on the dream of becoming an actress.
So which stars crashed and burned? Here are the 15 worst actresses of all time, ranked from the least to the most horrible.
15. Jessica Alba
The actress tried to make it in different film genres including romantic comedies, dance, and action. She got a lot of credits under her name, but many of those projects were terrible like The Love Guru, Good Luck Chuck, and Fantastic Four.
The actress later opened up to Elle magazine about how she was being directed as an actress and ended up leaving the industry.
I remember when I was dying in Silver Surfer. The director was like, ‘It looks too real. It looks too painful. Can you be prettier when you cry? Cry pretty, Jessica.’ He was like, ‘Don’t do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.’
She continued, “I’m like, ‘But there’s no connection to a human being.’ And then it all got me thinking: Am I not good enough? Are my instincts and my emotions not good enough? Do people hate them so much that they don’t want me to be a person? Am I not allowed to be a person in my work?”
