    I’ll start.

    I liked Samuel L. Jackson as an actor.

    I used to think that he was a very good actor and had a cool personality.

    Now as i am older, after watching some of his interviews and his attitude, i just see him as an incredibly arrogant and deeply insecure person who thinks to be a way better and more versatile actor than he actually is.

    Also a huge hypocrite, he once said how winning an Oscar is not important to him because according to him, he’s a very well known actor worldwide who puts butts in seats for his movies which are seen by the general public, and that is a bigger achievement for him, but then as soon as he had an opportunity, he was shamelessly campaigning everywhere for an Oscar nomination for The Hateful Eight.

    Plus, I found his comments in 2017 regarding the casting of Daniel Kaluuya in Get Out, about Afro-American actors vs Black British actors, deeply ignorant and incredibly dismissive of the racism black brits face in the UK, it’s like he thinks only black people in America are oppressed.

    So that’s my pick.

    I never liked or loved an entertainer, but I can admire their talent

    once you separate the art from the artist then you can truly enjoy the work

    * I remember lol when the HCA group gave her “actress of the decade award”

    Lol what? There must be a mix up. You meant Kristin Scott Thomas, right? Kristen Chenoweth? Because……

    I must say other actresses should learn from her, you don’t need to be good at your job you just need critics on your side.

    I’m literally in tears. The comments have me dead 💀😂

    I never like or love an actor or actress. Usually I only like and love my favorite Directors. BUT I dislike some actors:

    1.- Mark Ruffalo: he is TOO Political. He only talks about Politics in his Twitter. The worst of the worst.

    I used to really admire DeNiro’s acting, especially in the movies he made in the 1970s, and he did a lot of great work to support film in NYC, including helping to set up the Tribeca Film Festival, but then he made SO MANY crappy movies, which was bad enough, but I became thoroughly disillusioned when he publicly questioned whether vaccines are linked to autism, and promoted the anti-vaccine film Vaxxed, and partnered with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in a press conference for the World Mercury Project (now the Children’s Health Defense), a nonprofit organization known for its anti-vaccine stance.

    Well, I mean, Scarlett Johansson certainly took a hit in my eyes with her film roles. Now when I rewatch films where I originally thought she was great I’m like “yeah…anyone woulda done better…”

    Funnily enough re: the Mark Ruffalo comment lol, I actually think that the way actors get me to stop admiring their work is usually by making political statements that I find awful. I quite like Ruffalo, though he can be a bit dim. No such thing as “too political” for me, just “bad politics.” Mostly I can separate the artists from their art, but sometimes I just can’t. Kelsey Grammar and Dennis Quaid, e.g. Matt Damon has taken a slow toll on me over the years.

    There’s others who I used to love but I’ve gotten tired of their shtick. Jack Nicholson, Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Chastain come to mind.

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    The Power of the Dog / Jane Campion / Benedict Cumberbatch / Kristen Stewart / Kirsten Dunst / Troy Kotsur

    I’m apolitical so a man(Mark Ruffalo) who only talks about Politics in his Twitter is insufferable to me

    Rami Malek seems to have lost his mind playing Freddie Mercury, and the winning an Oscar seems to have both stripped his talent and turned him into a kind of self-important recluse. He was incredible in Mr. Robot and The Pacific.

    Chris Pratt, Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson can only play one character (themselves). Even when you love that early incarnation, it’s super tired after the nth outing. Plus they all seem like they’ve got their heads up their patooties.

    Alec Baldwin for obv.

    John Cleese and the many formerly adored hippies but now aging white men of the UK (Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, et al) who are of the anti-refugee, anti-climate action, rich asshole, vote Leave, Covidiot cohort.

    Bill Hader and Barry in everything (2 babka)
    The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.

    Jennifer Lawrence. I LOVED that girl. I was so happy when she won and overall I just really liked her personality. I lost my interest not long after she got cancelled, not because of the cancelling but because the films she did were just bad.

    After mother!, I regained interest and I hope her break has been good for her and she will now pick roles more wisely.

    Annette Bening.

    Used to like her as an actress, but in recent years she revealed herself as who she always has been.

    Incredibly arrogant, snobby, full of herself, big headed and quite frankly a limited actress.

    And miss Chastain. She’s just gotten so stale and repetitive. Anyway
