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.
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."
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.
In showbiz, there are many lessons to learn about nepotism. One of them is Jaden Smith. With both his parents enjoying successful careers spanning two decades, the road to stardom was open to Jaden Smith. But talent is apparently one thing you can’t just inherit.
In “The Day the Earth Stood Still’, the film scored just 27% with audiences and 20% with critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Jaden Smith pulled off another incredible feat, turning out an even worse performance in “After Earth.” Smith was so senselessly overdramatic that he won a Razzie. We just hope that he doesn't try to emulate too many of her parents' characteristics.
One has to ask oneself why movies keep starring Hayden Christensen. “The Last Man” scored a 0% with “Rotten Tomatoes” critics. “Outcast” managed to improve on this low score, getting a whole 4% with the critics on this website.
Still not convinced about this Canadian actor being one of the worst, both “Little Italy” and “American Heist” got 13% with the same webpage’s critics. No matter the genre – whether it is Romance, Action, or Action History (huh?) – if Christensen is in the lead, it is destined to bring in poor reviews.
