Hollywood is full of famous people with millions of fans who adore them. But do you ever stop and think why certain people are famous and why do people obsess over them? A lot of them have earned their fame thanks to being talented singers, actors, or directors. But some of these famous Hollywood celebs seem to be famous, but for what? Let’s take a look at the most overrated Hollywood celebrities.
1. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian may now have a line of shapewear and makeup but think back to where she started. She cleaned up well, but if you look at photos of her in the past you’ll quickly realize that she didn’t even have a sense of style back in the day. She’s famous for being rich and famous. But what is her actual claim to fame? Well, a sex tape that most of us have forgotten about. But who is she? What’s her talent?
2. Angelina Jolie
Angeline Jolie is a gorgeous woman, but is she a brilliant actress that everyone claims she is? Not really. If you watch her movies, you’ll see that in most of them she doesn’t act as much as walk around saying lines and looking pretty. The most you can expect from her facial expressions is raising an eyebrow. In most of the cases she doesn’t even have chemistry with her colleagues on the set. So how did she become a Hollywood celebrity? Actor parents and the genetical advantage of being pretty
3. Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise might’ve been a sensation in the ’80s, but at this point, he’s just a short guy who believes in Scientology and keeps playing the same role over and over, and that role just has him running around for most of the film. How many Mission Impossible movies are there at this point? Aren’t you tired of it yet?
4. Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow is often called a beautiful and talented actress, but her roles are quite simple and almost two-dimensional. Having rich and famous parents who were already in the industry gave her a good start in Hollywood. Now she just keeps promoting her weird company Goop that sells you plant dust and some goo and tells you that it’s the only way to look as good as Paltrow and be healthy. Does anyone believe that?
5. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp certainly is gifted when it comes to looks. Or at least he used to be. These days he gets by on just being Johnny Depp and dressing like a mix between a pirate and a hippy rockstar wannabe. Playing Jack Sparrow made him a world star, but it seems like he’s stuck in that role because he seems to do the same thing in every movie now, which is act drunk, a bit dramatic, and slightly camp.
6. Chrissy Teigen
Chrissy Teigen is adored online for the fact that she occasionally says something funny and the rest of the time she just posts stories on Instagram about what she does at home. And honestly, it’s not much, she walks around the house, chills with her kids, eats food prepared by her home chef and occasionally she cooks something herself and gets praised for that. Her only claim to fame is marrying John Legend, before that she was a model, but not even a super famous one.
7. Ryan Gosling
Ryan’s acting is mostly stoic, but he does have decent comedic timing. The guy also knows how to get a set of abs to make girls drool over him, but is he actually hella handsome and sexy like everyone seems to think? He just looks like a regular guy, but now he’s famous, so gets treated like royalty.
8. Chriss Pratt
He used to be this goofy guy from Parks and Rec, and then somehow he got to be in Guardians of the Galaxy. He lost weight, go buff, but he’s still playing the same goofball. We don’t see him doing anything special in his movies. So how come he’s now the new sex symbol and misted big shot? His career in Hollywood is honestly confusing, but at least he seems to be one of those celebs who are actually nice people, so that explains why people like him.
