Jessica Alba tops list of actors in the worst reviewed movies

Her wellness brand Honest is worth an impressive $1billion, but Jessica Alba’s movie career doesn’t quite reach up to that standard.

A new report has placed the actress, 37, in the unenviable top spot for actors in the worst-reviewed movies of the past 20 years.

With just one positively review over two decades, 2005’s Sin City, Alba comes just ahead of Jessica Biel, 36.

The report, whose results were compiled on behalf of British comparison-research site Go Compare, saw Alba average a Metacritic score of 39.0 for the movies she starred in during the preceding two decades. 

Metacritic is the popular review site that assigns mathematical values first to a critic’s review and then to a movie as a whole.

Alba’s has starred in 35 films over the past twenty years, but has notched up a huge amount of flops including the critically panned Valentine’s Day (2010) and Good Luck Chuck (2007).

But the actress isn’t giving up on her acting. Alongside her billion-dollar wellness brand and being mum to her three children, Jessica has been working hard this year on NBC’s Bad Boys spin-off LA’s Finest. 

It marks Alba’s first small-screen role since Dark Angel, which ran for two seasons (2000-2002) on Fox, while her last big screen role was in 2017’s El Camino Christmas.

Jessica Biel wasn’t far behind on the list, earning an average of 41.6 percent – and an extra honour of the lowest percentage of outright positive movies than anyone on the list with just 4 percent. Along with Alba, Biel also stars in Valentine’s Day.

Over on the male side of the list Next Friday actor and stand up comedian Mike Epps was in the top spot, averaging just a 38.3 score.

Kevin Pollak, who has appeared in 80 plus movies throughout his career including classics like A Few Good Men and The Usual Suspects, came in second place for the men.

Rounding out the list of males were Josh Duhamel, Robin Williams and Gerard Butler while for the women Heather Graham, Radha Mitchell and Kathy Bates took slots three to five.

While the late Robin Williams was an Oscar winner, much of his later work failed to live up to the acclaimed Good Will Hunting, with duds such as Bicentennial Man and Patch Adams littering his resume.

Kathy Bates meanwhile has been nominated for an Oscar on three occasions, and won best actress, for Misery.

But in recent years she also has acted in such critically panned outings as P.S. I Love You, which also stars fellow list-maker Gerard Butler. 

Verve also looked at the highest-rated actors with recent Oscar nominees and British talents Carey Mulligan and Sally Hawkins top among women with 72.8 and 69.2 Metacritic scores and Adam Driver and Leonardo DiCaprio, with 71.7 and 69.3, top for men.  

To conduct the study, Verve looked at every actor who’s had at least 20 live-action roles in the past 20 years and included only those who had were billed in the top 10 of a film according to IMDB. The Metacritic scores were then collated to come up with an average.
