People Share The ‘Universally Beloved’ Celebs They Think Are Overrated (20 Posts)

You know the old adage: “Opinions are like a–holes—everyone has one.” And for whatever reason, people dedicate entire segments of their brains to celebrities and famous people, then commit that to text on the good ol’ internet.

Redditor u/crystalmethanyh recently asked:

“Who’s a celebrity everyone loves except for you, and why?”

And people spilled some serious tea. Please note, obviously these are all just opinions — we don’t know any celebs and they may all be delightful people!

1. Beyonce


“Beyoncé. I don’t get why everyone is supposed to love her and if you don’t, you’re some sort of satanist. I find her music average, nothing groundbreaking, and I don’t care about her personally.” —u/Vynger

2. Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard

“Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard. Everything I have learned about their marriage has been against my will.” —u/goodvibess

3. The Rock

“The Rock. I’m so tired of hearing his, ‘I had seven bucks in my pocket’ spiel while completely ignoring the fact that he has a well-connected wrestling dynasty family and is genetically gifted. Yes, you work hard, but people are out there dying because they can’t afford healthcare and food, so preaching to them to work harder in every interview while he hasn’t had to cook his own meal in literal decades is condescending as fuck.” —u/cperillo84

4. Meryl Streep

“Meryl Streep. People think she’s an acting goddess, and I’ve just never been impressed.” —u/iamveryweeb

5. Gal Gadot

“Gal Gadot. Can’t act. Still annoyed about the ‘Imagine’ fiasco.” —u/StevesMcQueenIsHere

6. Vin Diesel

“Vin Diesel. He is so boring. Every single movie he plays the same type of character. Same tone. Same everything. There is no range. No diversity. Watching him act is fun the first few times, but then after that I feel like I need a change of pace and would rather watch paint dry as it would give me more variety. The only different role that man ever played was as a tree whose only line was, ‘I am Groot.'” —u/DuckingGolden

7. Lizzo

“I think Lizzo counts. At least it feels like there was a moment everyone was just in love with her. The songs I’ve heard from her are fine, but she’s praised Chris Brown a little too much to be likable.” —u/S_rene_jg

8. Elon Musk

“Elon Musk. The dude is just the front man of science. His engineers get no credit and the dude flaunts around like an idiot. He is smart, don’t get me wrong, but he does it in the wrong ways. And I have a belief that if you tell someone they’re the smartest for so long, they lose the passion to continue to learn and stop being the smartest. So yeah, dude is just the lead singer of what his team does.” —u/wokntaknstephenhawkn

9. Ariana Grande

“Ariana Grande. I swear to God I want to love her as much as most 20-something-year-olds do. I’ve bopped to so many of her songs and ‘thank u, next’ singlehandedly got me over my high school heartbreak. But whenever I see her on TV or in an interview, her voice/appearance/attitude feels like a new performance every time. IDK, it’s borderline uncomfortable to watch.” —u/fufthers

10. Oprah (and a big ? to this one)

“Oprah. She doesn’t seem very genuine or like she has good intentions.” —u/bitchcallmegoku

11. Zooey Deschanel

“Zooey Deschanel. She always seems super bored and tired in her scenes. She has no acting range. She’s quirky for the first movie then she’s just dull. What is everybody seeing that I’m not?” —u/evilmonkey9361

12. Adele

“I just don’t love Adele…I know, I know, everyone talks about what an amazing talent she is. Maybe, but her voice and her songs make me feel down and hopeless. Every. Single. Time. I. Hear. Them.” —u/mamameta

13. Leonardo DiCaprio

“Leonardo DiCaprio. I do believe he is a great actor, but damn if there isn’t something about him that pisses me off. My feelings aren’t justified in anyway! They are irrational and unexplainable. There is just something about the man that can be a real bummer for me.” —u/TheFloofAndi

14. Anna Kendrick

“Anna Kendrick…pushes the ‘so quirky’ thing a little too much for me.” —u/uhhshlay

15. Ryan Reynolds


“Ryan Reynolds. He’s just the same character in every movie, and that character is himself. Makes anything he’s in boring because you know exactly what kind of character he is and what kind of movie it’s gonna be.” —u/Joshalow25

16. Kristen Stewart

“Kristen Stewart. Speaking as a gay girl, so many gay gals thirst after her but something about her rubs me the wrong way. She seems a little full of herself and seems fake.” —u/rosewoodian

17. Kevin Hart

“Kevin Hart. Can’t STAND his need to scream his lines in a childlike nasally voice. His serious movie that he made recently wasn’t terrible though.” —u/Joka0451

18. Neil Degrasse Tyson

“Neil Degrasse Tyson. He’s so f-cking annoying. Stop being a dick and understand when people are speaking socially and when they are meaning something literally. Also, stop with your unsolicited science rants — you’re the astrophysicist version of mansplaining.” —u/ssb1001

19. Lin-Manuel Miranda

“Lin-Manuel Miranda. Terrible actor yet feels the need to insert himself in everything. And he’s a one hit wonder in my opinion.” —u/dcrowl1192

20. Jerry Seinfeld

“Seinfeld. He seems to be a comedy god to a lot of Americans. He’s just not very funny, and worse is the constant one-upmanship he does with comedians. They’ve generally said something very funny, then he has to add something less funny. I know that’s what happens when comedians get together but you know, make it funnier. Don’t get me wrong, the show Seinfeld has its moments and I enjoy it. It’s not his character I dislike, it’s him. I just don’t think he deserves the kudos!” —u/IAmDadNerd
