15 Celebs Who Failed At Becoming Serious Actors

Not everyone in Hollywood is on par with the acting abilities of Leonardo DiCaprio or Kate Winslet. There is a long list of actors that wishes they could be serious and distinguished actors, but flat out failed at doing so - at least according to the critics, anyway. Of course, we mean this in the nicest way.

In fact, you might even be surprised to see some of Hollywood’s biggest and highest paid actors on this list. Spoiler (kind of): Ben Affleck almost made the list, but we decided to give him a break after he dove into a deep melancholia and heartache at the realization that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a rather poor film (YouTube the version with Simon & Garfunkel playing over the clip!). It currently has been given a “rotten” rating via Rotten Tomatoes. Let’s reel it back, though: it was still a box-office success and has already pulled in 170 million dollars. In other words, we probably should have put him on this list.

In celebration of everyone who has ever attempted something and failed, we raise a glass in your honor.

15 Mark Wahlberg

14 Adam Sandler

13 Tom Cruise

12 Arnold Schwarzenegger

11 Shia LaBeouf

10 Keanu Reeves

9 Jennifer Aniston

8 Ice Cube

7 Lindsay Lohan

6 Jennifer Lopez

5 Megan Fox

4 Vince Vaughn

3 Vanilla Ice

2 Ashton Kutcher

1 Nicolas Cage

No disrespect to Nicolas Cage fans but let’s take a look at Nicolas Cage’s most recent serious roles, shall we? Let us tell you: it is certainly a sight. We’ve got Pay the Ghost, The Runner, Dying of the Light, Left Behind, Outcast, Rage, which were all panned by critics. Many critics went so far as to comment on the atrocious acting in some of these films as well. None of them even have over 5 on IMDb. The Frozen Ground received mixed views. Stolen did poorly as did Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Same for Trespass. We’ve covered basically all the roles that Cage has done between the years of 2016 and 2011. At this rate, we might as well call Nicolas Cage the new Vanilla Ice. I know there’s an Oscar in there somewhere, but no one remembers it at this point.
