Most actors try to stay likable to keep bringing people back to the theater and make a living in the process. However, every so often an actor is downcast, receiving ill favor from their fans. Whether it’s their personal life or consistent poor performances, hated actors probably did something to earn the public’s disapproval. But who are these loathed performers of the big screen? Here are 25 Most Hated Actors In Hollywood.
Getting his start on High School Musical, Zac Efron became an instant heartthrob to millions of tweens, and that creates enemies. Many hated his pretty-boy persona and none more than Seth Rogen who flat out admitted he hated Efron before working with him on his movie Neighbors.
Jonah Hill got his start in a bunch of comedy movies before he slowly transitioned over to more serious roles. He’s known to be a total jerk to his fans. When anyone sees him on the street and asks him for an autograph, he gives them a business card instead.
No one really knows where it started, but over time, people started considering John Travolta as something of a creepy uncle. From mispronouncing a name at the Oscars to inappropriate touching, people just stopped liking Travolta. As a result, his movies have suffered, and he’s been making lots of direct to digital films. Plus, the fact that he’s a powerful member of Scientology kind of freaks people out.
Calling “Hulk Hogan” an actor is kind of a stretch, but he did have a short career in Hollywood back in the day. Acting abilities aside, Hogan has been hated by pretty much everyone for his arrogance, his infidelity, and his racist tirades.
Ever since she became an adult, Lindsay Lohan has had a reputation of being a diva on set, never showing up, making it on time, or you know, doing any of the functional tasks of her job. The consistent drama has pegged her as too risky to hire. So, she doesn’t get much work these days.
