Born Mary Cathleen Collins, who would later be known as Bo Derek, took the easy route to stardom. She married director, John Derek who starred her in his not-erotic not-R-rated romantic “Fantasies.” Bo Derek is a case in fact that you need the talent to get to the top.
Two of her highest-rated films on “Rotten Tomatoes” have been given 54% and 41% by the website’s critics. And these are her mostly highly rated! If stardom was what Derek wanted, then she certainly got it. Three Razzies decorate the actress’s cabinets. Derek most recently showed up on the Spanish edition of “The Masked Singer.”
Her cringe-worth performance in “Gigli” has gone down as the worst in film history. With the exception of embarrassing seduction scenes, the actress seems to be out of place and wanting enthusiasm in much of the film. While “Gigli” is certainly her worst to date, there are several contenders for the no.2 spot.
These include J-Lo’s role as Marisa Ventura in “Maid in Manhattan,” Ramona in “Hustlers” and Claire Peterson in “The Boy Next Door.” She has been nominated four times for a Golden Raspberry for Worst Actress, making her a regular Razzie contender. Nice to see her on the same list as her husband.
She had one good performance playing herself which put her on the showbiz map and that was not in “The Bling Ring” – if you know what I mean. Unfortunately, it was aimed at “adult’ audiences and not the kind that enjoys a mature production, with meaningful character development.
Paris Hilton just may be the graveyard of all movies. “The Hottie and Nottie” with its laughable lines and lack of storyline scored 6% with “Rotten Tomatoes.” And what is worse, is “National Lampoon’s Pledge This” fared even worse, achieving 0% on the website. To be honest, it's a bit of a stretch to even call Paris Hilton an actress.
Director Michael Bay may have tried to reverse the stereotype of the brainless bombshell in the “Transformers” franchise, but he certainly failed in this endeavor by casting Megan Fox for the role. We can blame Bay for creating the shallow character Mikaela Banes which Fox got a Razzie nomination for.
There have been three other Worst Actress nominations including Fox’s roles in “Jennifer’s Body,” “Jonah Hex” and “Midnight in the Switchgrass.” More indicative of Fox’s acting failures are box office figures – the latter dismally coming short of $100,000. If it wasn't her relationship with Machine Gun Kelly, we're not sure if we'd still be interested in her.
The “Twilight” franchise did not exactly cement Kristen Stewart as an outstanding actor. Year after year, Stewart was nominated for worst actress as Bella Swan in the saga. Interestingly, it was in the final installment that she went home with the Golden Raspberry for Worst Actress.
Vacant stares, pouting, mouth-biting, and heavy breathing are not exactly signs of strong acting abilities. To add to her repertoire, there is “Seberg,” “Anesthesia,” and “On the Road” – all of them flopping with critics, audiences, and the first two, massive box office busts. We have a feeling that Stewart might end up becoming a good actress with time. After all, she's still young.
