    Saw A-Team over the weekend and while I liked it, Jessica Biel has got to be one of the worst A-list actresses working.

    I don't know if she's worse than Jessica Alba and Cameron Diaz is only slightly better than those two.

    Jennifer Aniston, outside quirky indy films, is putrid in every other movie she's ever made. She got lucky with Friends but her big movies have all uniformly sucked.

    Megan Fox is bad as well.

    Biel seems to specialize in "the hot girl" role in movies where being hot is seemingly the only requirement. I'm just glad you don't hear her complain about not getting better roles.
  4. Megan Fox is tearing ass toward the on-ramp to soft-core porn.

    Hard not to go against Cameron Diaz. Horribly overrated, but still gets major run.

    Is Tori Spelling big enough? She's bad. Is very bad.

    Don't think Julia Roberts is a bad actress per se; I just can't stand her.

    Fox is awful. I agree on Aniston. Other than The Good Girl, she's been bad or forgettable in everything she's done.

    Apparently, Alba is great in the movie she's in with Casey Affleck. I'll believe it when I see it.

    I would say A-list only... Spelling would be lucky if she's on the D-list.

    I'm having a hard time coming up with someone who is both the worst actor and actress.

    I think it depends on what the expectations are, and how one defines A-list. Biel is horrible, but I'm not sure her inclusion in A-Team as a piece of eye-candy, or her relationship with Timberlake, elevates her to the A-list. Looking IMBD, there are two movies she made in between "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" and "A-Team" that I've never even heard of, and I've only heard of the third because she was naked in it (Powder Blue) not because I've seen it.

    I still say Halle Berry is the worst truly A-list actress out there.

    Alba is very, very, very bad. But is she A-list?

    Julia Stiles remains my pick for worst B-list actress, although she might have slipped to the C-list or D-list in recent years.
  10. I would have nominated Cuba Gooding, Jr., but he's no longer A-list. I keep waiting to see when he'll tap out and hit one of VH-1s "reality" shows.
