"Actors" I can Not Bear to Watch and The Reasons Why

Kiera Knightly - She REEEEEEEALY needs a dialogue coach. Seriously, the next time you hear her say "really" you will know what I am talking about. When I see her clavicles my shoulders get very, very cold.
John Malkovich- The sound of his voice is so very... pedestrian. "Man In the Iron Mask" - ruined because of John Malkovich's voice. " Empire of the Sun" was the only thing I have head him where I didn't want to crawl out of my skin every time I heard his voice because his voice fit the character. I have always been curious about the film "Being John Malkovich" but I am too, too afraid.
Kevin Costner - Complete lack of acting ability - I do love "Robin Hood and the Prince of Thieves" but that was such a fun movie not even bad acting could ruin it, oh, AND Alan Rickman totally made up for Costner's ineptitude.

Angelina Jolie - I am jealous, she has wealth enough to travel the world and buy big houses, she is beautiful, she goes home to Brad Pitt, she has twins (2 for 1), 6 kids 3 of which she didn't have to bear, when the 6 kids are getting to be a little much she can just hand them over to the nannies, she is a UN ambassador, she helps all these poor people, I bet if she wanted to have chickens Brad would let her...the list goes on. But as my friend Deirdre points out Nutmeg is cuter than Shiloh and Brangelina are living in sin so I am 2 up.

I am SOOO with you on John Malkovich! I would have LOVED "Man In the Iron Mask" if not for him! I watched the film with the director's commentary and the director just GUSHED every time John Malkovich was on screen, saying how LUCKY he was to get him and how he just LOVED the way he acted. Ummm.... monotone. I can act monotone, too. Where's the talent?

And I like watching Angelina Jolie b/c she's so pretty. :)

I loved Kiera Knightly in Pride & Prejudice, although I never paid attention to her pronunciation of really. :)

Oh, and I think that Kiera Knightly looks like she could be Winona Ryder's sister. Seriously.

Okay...I'll have to agree with your list except for Kiera Knightly. I loved her in Pride and Prejudice! I also love Kevin Costner, he's so, um, whats the word, well I think sexy. Angelina Jolie is just irritating. I mean really raising six kids and acting, those kids will never be the same, living with a womanizing joke of a man, doesn't make her all that 'fantastic' in my mind. Well, you didn't ask but there are my very opinionated opinions :)

I totally agree with you on Kiera Knightly. She really has speaking problems and she constantly looks like she should have braces or a retainer on. As for pride and prejudice... I don't know how to describe my intense dislike of that ABOMINATION! I already didn't like Kiera Knightly and then she took one of my favorite characters and butchered it!!! Not to mention her horrible hair, the historical inaccuracies, the totally wrong, horrible and maddening ending! That movie make Keira Knightly totally irredeemable in my eyes.

As for Angelina Jolie... I agree with that smart friend of yours, Deirdre, Nutmeg is way cuter and more stylish than Shiloh.
