Alright everyone, here we go! The moment you’ve all been
waiting for dreading. The worst actresses of 2012. These are the ladies that left our jaws hanging open in disbelief at just how awful they were. The worst female performers of the year!
Click through to she the ladies who were the biggest offenders of 2012!
Drew brings her lopsided style of delivery to a shrill environmentalist character. She plays an aggressive, vocal activist who loudly preaches her protectionist message. I’d typically lean towards her views, but even I wanted her to shut up! Drew does little to mitigate the pain. She also manages as many romantic sparks with co-star John Krasinski as a roll of wet paper towels. The only endangered species here is Drew’s acting career.
On the plus side, Greene’s performance was the scariest part of the movie. Not for the right reasons, of course, and not that that’s saying much. A “Twilight” alum, Greene brings her CW level talent to bear here in order to create a completely forgettable character. In a way, that’s good, I wish I could forget the rest of this film! Still, this was high school drama class stuff, her agent should get credit just for finding her work!
I took it much easier on “One for the Money” than most people (C), but even I can’t deny that Heigl was a detraction. Not that the material was pure gold or anything, but a more winsome leading lady would have gone a long way towards disarming some of the vitriol aimed at the film. Heigl just seems to bring out the hater in folks, and there’s not much that I can say in her defense based on her lackluster turn in this one.
I really liked “Resident Evil: Retribution”, but a big part of that was how much fun I had laughing at the acting. What would I ever say to Jovovich if I met her at an autograph signing? “I loved your movie, you were so funny!” I have a sneaking suspicion she wouldn’t appreciate it. As much as I enjoyed the latest “Resident Evil”, “Laughably Bad” is still Bad.
“Snow White and the Huntsman”
How bad do you have to be when you’re Snow White in a Snow White movie, and they announce they’ll be doing a sequel without you? “Pretty Damn Bad” is the answer you’re looking for. The movie actually tried to hide her in spite of the fact she had the titular role, giving her fewer lines, spending lots of time on other characters and minimizing the emotive work she’d have to do. Didn’t work.
[Note: It's a well-known fact that I've yet to witness a "Twilight" film, saving them all for the eventual, promised "Too Much Twilight to take?" blogging endurance marathon. So any actresses involved in that reputably poor acting fest is off the hook for contention here!]
There you have it, folks, the worst actresses of 2012!
Are there any that you think I’m picking on unfairly? Anyone you were really hating on this year that I omitted? Out of the nominees above, who do YOU want to see take home the lamp?
Let’s hear it!
