I was inspired by Abbi over at Where the Wild Things Are to put together my top 10 most irritating actors, so I just had to follow it up with my top 10 most irritating actresses. And do you know what? I think they might be even more annoying…
In no particular order, are my own top 10 most irritating actresses.
Malin Akerman. Just. So. Irritating! Seriously, I’m not sure what her deal is, but for some reason she makes me twitch.
Elizabeth Banks. Malin and Banks are cut from the same cloth, perhaps why I find them both so very annoying. I’m really not sure what discernible talent either of them has. Plus, there’s all those shitty rom-coms. Urgh.
Gwyneth Paltrow. No list of irritating actresses would be complete without Gwynnie. She has a lot to offer, being that she’s equally annoying on and off screen – she dated Brad Pitt, married rock’s most insipid front-man, named her first born Apple (ffs!), uses the term ‘consciously uncoupling’ and goes on endlessly about macrobiotic food. What a massive snore. Frankly I was glad when her head ended up in a cardboard box.
Julia Roberts had to make the list purely because of the sheer vastness of her dodgy rom-com back catalogue. I’m surprised she hasn’t given herself diabetes, she just seems so, nice.
I had to include Kate Beckinsale because I can’t help but think she’s successful at the expense of other British actresses, who have more talent in their split ends than she has in her whole body.
Kristen Stewart made the grade because of her perpetually sulky expression – talk about a face like a slapped arse. There’s also the whole R-Pats thing which multiplies her irritation quotient exponentially.
Amy Adams because I’m not even sure why, just argh!
Rachel McAdams. OK, so by this point I’m realising that my dislike for these actresses is actually pretty irrational. I mean, it’s not really founded on anything much, other than a primal, gut instinct. Like how a lot of people are scared of spiders.
Argh! It’s a McAdams – quick, flush it down the toilet!
Jennifer Garner. One half of one of Hollywood’s most annoying couples. Do I need to say any more?
Keira Knightley. Oh, Keira. Where did it all go wrong? With your incessant pouting? Your infuriatingly plummy accent? Or the fact you basically play the same character over and over again.
So, there we have it. What do you think? Who gets your goat…?
