What do you mean by “overrated”? That they aren’t as talented as the media makes them out to be? That they’re overexposed?

I never thought Angelina Jolie was that great of an actress, or Halle Berry. They’re very pretty, though. And James Franco is very overexposed at this point, though, but he’s an excellent actor.

And if Lady Gaga got off the autotuned Madonna ripoffs and did something closer to how she started her career on the Lower East Side back in the day, when she actually sang and played piano, everyone would see how talented she really is.

@aprilsimnel You’ve got it. Celebrities that aren’t as good as the media plays them out to be.

All of them.

@aprilsimnel I strongly agree with you about Lady Gaga!

Katie Price and Kerry Katona are two of the most overrated celebrities here in the UK. Both are talentless, media whores.

In all of Don Rickles years of attempted humor, I think about one of his attempts made me laugh.

Gene Simmons.
He can’t play bass for shit and he’s a money grubbing asshole. And KISS blows.

@Michael_Huntington I couldn’t agree more.

@Brian1946 Frank Sinatra overrated? You’re joking! Ya, he was a dick, but he was immensely talented.

My list would include Spike Lee, Matthew McConaughey, Lady Gaga, Paul Reiser, and Charlie Sheen.

Brian1946's avatar

@filmfann

I’m referring to his singing, which I guess was surpassed by his acting.
IMO he had a pleasant voice, but I prefer Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Jim Morrison, and Steve Perry.

filmfann's avatar

@Brian1946 LOL You had me hooked, until you mentioned Steve Perry ! You’re hysterical!

I never understood America’s obsession with celebrities. I am an American and I don’t know who half of them are. I don’t watch much tv and even in high school I didn’t know or even care for most celebrities!. I’ve never been “with it”.

Aster's avatar

I think most of them are very talented but I’ll give it a try:
Burt Reynolds
Don Rickles
Suzanne Somers
John Ritter

woodcutter's avatar

@aprilsimnel Yeah, he still has a gig on “Family Guy” playing himself. So, still viable I think.

Aster's avatar

Yes; I forgot Ben Stiller. He also looks like his spine is twisted or something.

Kardamom's avatar

@Aster It’s too bad about Ben Stiller, because his folks are a hoot!

GracieT's avatar

How ‘bout ANY of the “reality stars” and any of the just famous for being famous people? Also Tom Cruise and Justin Bieber. I don’t know why
precisely but they irritate me…
