AUGUST 10, 2015

The 60 Most Hated Men in Hollywood

Whether it's been terrible performances on the big screen or bad behavior off-screen, here are 60 Hollywood dudes are far from being fan favorites. You won't believe the stories some of the stupid stunts and putrid portrayals these celebrity bros have tarnished their legacies with. Read on for more.

When it comes to Hollywood, being famous is not the same as being liked. Not all men are as beloved as say, Jimmy Kimmel or Michael Strahan: talk show hosts that people just adore because they are funny and relatable. These 20 actors are are hated by the media and masses, and in some cases even their coworkers and peers. None of them can hold down a steady reputation as likable men, no matter how hard they try. And some of them definitely aren't even trying. Read on and find out which Hollywood hunks are least liked and why.

1. Joaquin Phoenix

When Phoenix made the announcement that he was no longer interested in being a movie star and that he wanted to focus on a new career as a rap star, people were a little shocked. In fact, he began wearing dark glasses, sporting a crazy long beard, and acting a little out of sorts-- which was a part of a sort of performance art project, merely a stunt. People did not like that.

2. Jonah Hill

Jonah
  Hill

SheBudgets

Despite his success in Hollywood, the hilarious actor has been less than well-received recently. He's been nominated twice for an Academy Award, and friends say it's changed him. Reporters complain that he's not willing to answer their questions and others say that he's angry and hateful and that he's taken to treating people poorly in the Hollywood circles in which he runs. None of which is doing much for his reputation.

3. Ben Affleck

When it was announced that he would be the new Batman, the people revolted, sure that he would not make a good Bruce Wayne. That kind of casting upset for a movie that hadn't been made or released yet is not a good indicator of a beloved actor.

4. Keanu Reeves

Keanu
  Reeves

SheBudgets

I'm often surprised as to why a lot of people don't seem to like Keanu, but for some, it's simply because he was the subject of an internet meme that made him out to be constantly sad. As silly as it seems, that image stuck and spiraled out of control. Now it's gone so far that people constantly accuse poor Keanu of being an angry, hateful jerk who hasn't been cast in any good movies for a long time.

5. Charlie Sheen

After Charlie Sheen's very infamous break down that made him look like a complete lunatic people realized he probably just wants a very nice person. Allegations of spousal abuse with his most recent wife didn't help matters nor did the fact that his meltdown was coming at a time when he should be with his kids. But then he does have tiger blood...and that is kinda cool.

6. Adam Sandler

Adam
  Sandler

SheBudgets

The simple answer as to why many dislike Adam Sandler is that many are simply bored with his overused film formulas, relying on stale comedic routines and silly voices. The shelf life on his movies seems to have expired a decade ago.

7. Seth Rogen

Seth
  Rogen

SheBudgets

Most people who don't like Rogen say they do so because they see him as a terrible actor and they hate the fact he keeps getting jobs in blockbuster comedies. Others dislike his openness about weed smoking.

8. Jaden Smith

Jaden
  Smith

SheBudgets

If you've ever looked at Jaden Smith Twitter account, you'd understand well why he rubs people the wrong way. His outlandish claims on science and conspiracy theories confused even more people when he did an interview with his sister and began discussing things that rally make no sense at all.

9. Shia LeBouf

Shia
  LeBouf

SheBudgets

Shia LeBouf fall from grace came after years of portraying the good kid in wholesome family movies, and his desire to start portraying more questionable characters in often very artsy movies. News of some legal troubles and behavior issues dirtied up his image even more.

10. James Franco

James
  Franco

SheBudgets

James Franco is definitely very educated when it comes to acting, even setting up an acting course to teach others. But a lot of people started questioning his work ethics when he was photographed sleeping through one of his high-profile classes.

11. Justin Bieber

Justin
  Bieber

SheBudgets

Justin Bieber started out as a good boy but somewhere along the line, his image took a wrong turn, making him appear to many adults as a celebrity that is now setting very bad examples for kids. Young male teens all seem to dislike him for his massive fame with the opposite sex and the fact he was dating Selena Gomez. Having said that, the Biebs still has a massive group of followers who adore him more than anything.

12. Chris Brown

Chris
  Brown

SheBudgets

People have a very good reason to be a bit upset with Chris Brown. He was one of the biggest singers around when an altercation with his then girlfriend Rihanna came to the limelight. He was accused of beating her and verbally abusing her on multiple occasions. Chris later was sentenced to one year in jail in connection to a fight he'd had in a club.

13. Tiger Woods

Tiger
  Woods

SheBudgets

It seems like some are beginning to forget and forgive Tiger Woods' very famous indiscretions, but that doesn't change the fact that a huge amount of people first think of a serial adulterer when his name comes up in conversation.

14. Tom Brady

Tom
  Brady

SheBudgets

Tom Brady is far from the most popular quarterback in the NFL right now. Many obviously dislike his talent and success which came at the expense of their teams, but what angered many were his comments to the press, where he accused people of simply being haters who could never amount to talent likes his. Too be fair, he isn't wrong.

15. Michael Vick

Michael
  Vick

SheBudgets

Michael Vick is one of the most famous hated men in the world, and with VERY good reason. He was accused and eventually sentenced for running a dog-fighting operation. Not only is that highly illegal and inhumane, but you don't mess with man's best friend and expect people to ever forget or forgive what you did.

16. Barack Obama

Barack
  Obama

SheBudgets

Barack Obama isn't technically in Hollywood, but he's one of the most famous faces in the world right now, being the leader of the free world. He's one of the most controversial Presidents in history who has Republicans disliking him for all sorts of reasons. Many have even falsely accused him of being a Muslim or not having a US birth certificate.

17. Val Kilmer

Val
  Kilmer

SheBudgets

Val Kilmer is infamous for being a very hard person to deal and work with in Hollyood. It's something that has made him less than popular in the film industry and within the Hollywood circles which he belongs to. Many reporters, producers, directors and other celebrities have voiced their dislike about working with him, and it seems like the public has noticed it and now shares a dislike for him.

18. Mike Myers

Mike
  Myers

SheBudgets

There is a lot of people in Hollywood that state he is a jerk, a high-maintenance control freak and that he is a perfectionist. They state that he's demanding and rude, and there have long since been rumors that people just do not like to work with him, which has caused his reputation to fade a bit. But on that note, the same people also state that he is a complete genius, and that they will work with him begrudgingly out of respect for his craft. We have to go with that one; you can hate him all you want, but he is hilarious.

19. Tom Cruise

Tom
  Cruise

SheBudgets

When asked why people hate Tom Cruise, most of the responses are about his Scientology

believes. Other answers are about dishonesty about his personal life and a general aura of creepiness. These might be no reasons to hate a man, but it's the image that seems to have stuck with many.

20. Kanye West

Kanye
  West

SheBudgets

If there is one person everyone just loves to hate, it's self proclaimed Messiah of music, Kanye West. He's very outspoken about his God given talents which gives people the impression that he's a self-centered jerk. This image was confirmed when he rushed the stage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards and grabbed the microphone out of Taylor Swift's hands and aired his objections to the teenager winning an award.
