Here's another actors thread you can jump onto. Whose is a celebrity (be it actor, singer, figure in the public eye, etc.) whose fame you can't understand. Someone who when you see, you think to yourself "Why the Hell are they famous."

I know I can go with the obvious ones, but for me, one person whose popularity I can't understand is Ryan Reynolds. Why the Hell is this guy considered funny. I see him in a movie and I can only think to myself that he's kind of a poor man's Jason Lee. If you look closely, Jason and Ryan have a lot of the same characteristics. The same verbal tics and body language and such. But Lee just have that extra thing. That little bit of subversive attitude that makes him who he is. He plays dicks, but you can't help but like them.

On the other hand, when Ryan plays a dick, he's a dick and no amount of mugging or whatever the Hell he does can change that.

Please tell me I'm not alone in this.

So whose a celebrity whose fame mystifies you?

yeah, that is my pick too...
she can't act
she has no talent for anything

South Park did a whole show about the fact that she is only famous for being a stupid wh*re

not to be all judgemental, but it kills me to see her on TV all the time. Nothing makes me change the channel faster...
well, also Donald Trump...I change the channel when I see him too.

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to jump on the Paris Hilton bandwagon here. That is the first person who lept to mind when this was posted.

Then Britney Spears is a close second.

And for me.. Jessica Simpson is third.

Not to be totally female-centric in my answer too, Tom Cruise gets my vote. Sorry, just don't see it, nuh uh.

Simon Cowell.

Odious, noxious, superfluous little man.

His fame is based entirely on sitting ther with his trousers cutting off his brething at the neck, insulting people too damn stupid and pathetic for it to be anything but shameful that a grown man has nothing better to do. His insults ain't even entertaining, funny or witty. My 5 year old niece can make more cutting remarks than he does. (not that she feels the need to make herself look superior to the cretins that audition for shows like that by making fun of them)

And lets face it, has the music he's introduced to the world made it a better place by even one iota?

oh, he also stands as living testament to the shameful fact that some women will anything with a bit of money and 'power'.

oh, yeah, and Paris Hilton. Oxygen Thief.

Not to make this thread totally negative (I was aiming for slightly funny), I'd like to say the obvious in that most of our pop culture is a celebration of mediocrity. Now, the good news it that sooner or later, people realize said mediocrity and give them their cultural walking papers. Time is normally the best judge of that.

But all I gotta say is this. If this is a society where true talent is rewarded and idolized, then the paparrazzi would have spilt more ink over the nuptuals and new baby of Maggie Gyllenhall and Peter Sarsgaard than fucking Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Over two people who can not only act but act incredibly well. Whose names are synonymous with quality.

oh, credit to dan brown though. His writing may suck and his work may be hanging around like a fart in a spacesuit, but he has got the church and all these historians and academics so riled up and self righteously flustered over one little paperback bit of fluf that every time I see one of them, I just have to laugh my little ass off.

I'm sorry, I did aim for humor, but I find It very hard to see the funny when it come to Mr Highpants.

Apart from his hair - road kill, its the worse hair since donald trump. You just want to offer both of them (the 'do's) some food and water. That makes me giggle.

the last one was Catherine Zeta Jones. I've never found her particularly remarkable, looks or talent or other wise (oh she's good looking, but blandly so) she only seened to make it major league when she started boinking the old dude.

Have you seen the Pink vidoe for 'stupid girls' thats funny.

Though what you were saying misses the point very slightly. These people are all famouse, the press go after them and their babys, because the 'celebs' are attention whores and make it really easy for them. Actors like Maggie are very private about their lives basically cause beyond the exhibitionism inherant in almost all actors, they are normal people. They go to premiers and press junkets as part of their jobs, then they go home and be normal.

Paris Hilton doesn't have a job, Simon cowells was nearly so interesting, Toms was in decline (after all the scientology madness dented his popularity) (mind you, he hasn't really helped that, but TomKat got him through to the opening of MI:3) so being papped is pretty much all they have.We set up a culture where useless oiks hang around like the aformentioned farts because the people we are really interested in don't whore themselves out for us, and the human mind thrives on new information and gossip.

Though whoever said tom and brad were crap - one exception - i liked them both in Interview (Kirsten acted them out of the room, but they were still good in their own right) and both of them used to be the very epitome of 'star quality' - they were there when that was what was needed.

99.9% of all UK 'celebrities'.

Jordan, Chantelle, Jodie Marsh, Tara P-T, Simon Cowell, Every 'big brother' retard, Chris Martin, Kerry Katona, etc... etc... etc...

The whole concept of celebrity completely astounds me. I mean, Jade Goody became famous for being an idiot on big-brother. She didn't even win but then she did celebrity wife swap and now Jeff Brazier as an extention is apparantly a celebrity... They broke up... He doesn't have a job... The only TV he's done is on celebrity versions of reality shows... How does that work???

I love my captain


I'm going to chime in here with a few people who aren't that big any more but who used to be huge. I'm widening the topic to anyone whose celebrity has ever baffled you.

Kevin Costner. I just never understood it. How did this man win any Oscars. Not only can he not act, he can't even do an english accent, not of any kind (his Robin Hood had me gagging).

Hillary Duff. Thank god she seems to have fallen of the face of the Earth into those stupid "liquid ice" commercials. Mediocre singer, mediocre actress, unmemorable cookie cutter barbie doll. Her fame really upset me and made me fear for humanity. For that matter, so do most of the most of the folks named on this thread.

Jerry Seinfeld. I'm sure that many people will disagree with me and I'm not looking to start an argument, but I never found him or his show to be funny. More like painfully stupid and often boring.

William Hung.
...
...
...
Just why! This one actually made me want to stab someone in the face. What I could never figure out was why he was singled out to laugh at. Yes he was horrible and faintly amusing in a sad, disturbing kind of way. But so are a lot of the people that try out for that show. From what I've seen of American Idol (which isn't much) he wasn't anything special as far as the horrid and the embarassing go. Now we're not only celebrating mediocre talent but mediocre suckage as well. What does that say about our culture?

The fact that he and Alanis Morrissette are engaged makes me want to

I really don't get Kate Hudson at all. How to lose a guy in 10 days was ridiculously dumb. I guess there was Almost Famous, which was a good film, but not because of her. I really wouldn't have minded another actress in the role at all. Kirsten Dunst was considered, and I think she would have been much better.

Tom Cruise. I don't like him, I just don't like him. Even before it was popular to not like him, I didn't like him. I don't like Top Gun. Risky Bussiness annoys me. Arrg. I hate Tom Cruise.

I agree with that. It's easy to dismiss him as being popular because he's pretty, but he gave some good performances. I liked him in 12 Monkeys, Fight Club and Troy, and I thought he was excellent in what is probably my favourite movie, Seven.

The three that have puzzled me the longest, nearly 20 years are...

Michael Douglas. ewwwwwwww, sleezy, oily scuzball with no chin.

C. Thomas Howell. Why? There's nothing even vaguely interesting or talented or good looking about that lump of mashed potatoes.

Tom Cruise. Midgets don't get to save the world unless you're shooting them out of a cannon *at* the bad guy.

As for more recent craptastic vapid losers:

Paris Hilton. Look at me, I'm a silver spoon whore with no apparent talent for anything besides amateur porn.

Britney Spears. Look at me, I'm a trailer park slut who breeds fantastically well with lower level primates.

Jessica Simpson. Look at me, I have HUGE tits and not a single brain cluttering up my skull.

Ashlee Simpson. Look at me, Jessica is my big sister and I have HUGE tits. *hoe down dance*

Katherine Zeta Jones. Look at me, I sleep with Michael Douglas. (whole new level of oookieness)

Lindsey Lohan. Look at me, no you can't see me 'cause I'm a stick figure waiting to die of heart failure.

The Bush Twins. Look at us. We're drunken bimbos but our daddy can bomb you if you aren't nice to us.

Donald Trump. Look at me, I have the worst rug in the world and my lips look like bad liver. Let me feel up your college age daughter.

Celene Dion. Look at me. Better idea, go find a caterwalling coyote and have it sing in french to you.

Okay, I'm done for a moment.

Apparently he's actually good in the up and coming Scanners (and it not animated, its rotoscoped or something, so they're just colouring in his actual performance.

But yeah, based on some of the things he's done, over-rated.


Talking of reality t.v. stars, the single one I'd not object to seeing more of is Darius Danesh. After the crazy unbelivable random patheticness of his auditions. He actually managed to turn it into something good and beat Simon Cowell at his own stupid game, he made an album, which considering the pop-muppets who won Idol were still covering other peoples songs badly, was ok for its level and original at least!

Plus, seeing him on tv, he actually has a personality, he's got the joke now, and he's a laugh a minute (ok, so I 've only seen one appearence, but he amused me)

I think someone should give him a job presenting something, he's got the makings of a decent t.v. personlity, then when his tastes start wandering, he may start making music for grown-ups, and I for one will give it a listen.

oh, sorry, that was my essay on Darius. You'd actually think I liked the guy wouldn't you?

Pretty much all of the previously mentioned , plus:-

Jeremy Paxman
Most 'celebrity' chefs, even the 'sainted' Delia
Garry Shandling. Maybe I'm missing something, but ???
*Alec* Baldwin. Get a diet and some anger management classes already.
Jeremy Clarkson - should be made to wear drag forever in punishment for being a misogynistic dinosaur
The Spice Girls - just retire, now.
All boy bands - ditto
Eminem and most rappers - silencing order!
Most modern R&B stars - ditto

Trinny and Suzanna.

Yup, (maby its cause I recognise to much or my self in them) (but) first against the wall when the revolution comes.


I have to nominate the one true oxygen theif fake celeb though - Chantalle, 'fake celeb' in big brother, and in some cruel self-fulfilling curse 'fake celeb' in life.

Does anyone find her absolutely nausiating? She's like a cheap-seconds Paris Hilton clone fed through a chav-itiser.

That "lump of mashed potatoes" as you call him, happens to be a dear friend of mine and he's the most sweet, kind, nice, generous, charming and talented guy I've ever had the pleasure to know.
Sorry to hear you have such a low opinion about him...but alas! You have the right to express your feelings.

I agree about Tom Cruise, though.

I'm Ba-aaaack!

Yes I've thought of someone else!!!

First though, allow me to add my support for everyone else's comments with the possible exception of Brad Pitt and Jeremy Clarkson (I can't help it... he makes me laugh!)

The new people for my list are two people I have hated since the moment I found out how much money they were making.

... Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

I mean, all they're famous for is being identical. That is biology, not talent or skill. I would be perfectly happy if I never saw either of them ever again. In anything! Grrrrr

Rove Mcmanus - the host of an Australian interview show ('Rove', of course). I just don't know how this unfunny and annoying little man got a tv show and why he is still on the air. He gets all the big stars as well. His show isn't even in the top 100 yet he is this celebrated Aussie icon.


Julie Roberts definetly. Why do people go watch her movies?

As an aussie its hard to say this but Nicole Kidman
She can't act at all yet she is in every big Hollywood movie.

Matthew McConaughey - Can't act. Rides on his looks more than any other Hollywood star

One day.
One mission.
One army of Browncoats.

I wasn't going to chime in here, but there is one name that hasn't appeared yet and as far as I'm concerned it should be at the top or tied for the top with Paris Hilton. That fact only kind of scared me into posting.

First, I have to say I don't agree with every mention, but if a name has popped up more than 3 times, (and several have...) I can't argue with any of those.

Pamela Anderson is the poster child for everything that is wrong with Hollywood.

I was going to write this post in response to the one about Ryan Reynolds. But I'm going to start by sticking up for Ant and Dec.

Their popularity may be mistifying in a country where people get on tv for breaking up with their girlfriend to marry Chantelle or for cheating at Who wants to be a millionaire. I for one am glad that people will tune in every Saturday night to see nice normal people like Ant and Dec. They may not be the most talented people in the world. But their SMTV live for children made a nice change from bbc one rubbish for kids and who couldn't love them after Let's get ready to rumble (from one of their three succesful albums). Anyway my point is I think they're sweet so leave them alone .

Also if you don't like Ryan Reynolds and haven't seen Two guys and a girl (formerly two guys, a girl and a pizza place, also starring Nathan Fillion) then you should check it out. If you have and still hate him, ok.
