Macaulay Culkin, Hayden Christensen and Edward Furlong should get honorable mentions although I do think Furlong is a good actor.

Yes yes YES! Goddamm mo**fu**ing YES! There's only one film with Sean Connery I hate, and this is The League of Extra Bordinary Gentlemen

Connery started losing his memory, believed to be from the first stages of Alzheimer's soon after. His career had previously been harmed by his appearance in the so-bad-it-was-unwatchable Avengers, with Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurton, both of whose careers also took a hit, Fiennes' fatally in Hollywood.

Disagree fo Kevin Kostnet. Waterworld is not a good movie, but what does it matters a movie in a so bright career?
Halle berry. Sounds like a poisonous fruit.

"Waterworld" starring Kevin Costner did eventually recoup its huge production costs, taking worldwide TV broadcast sales into account and home video sales it actually made a healthy profit overall, so it is not quite the financial bomb it is made out to be, it was not the box office smash the studio had hoped for.....but it made good money over time.

where do you people get your information? I would bet that most of it is made up just to make this video...

I don't think Kevin Costner was ruined by any means. I think he just got older.

I like topher Grace , but casting him as venom was akin to mr. Bean playing superman.

Sean Connery was ending his career after "The League.." afaik. He didn't like the movie himself, but it wasn't what ended it, he was just old. Halle Berry has had many good roles since Catwoman. Actors aren't all DiCaprio who manages to have hit after hit. Halle Berry didn't have more hits before Catwoman either. I agree Waterworld was catastrophic for Kevin Costner, but I don't think it was an entirely uninteresting movie. It got more flak than it deserved. Can't say too much about the rest, I'm pretty sure Elizabeth Berkley never had the chops for the big screen. She seemed like a bad actor willing to compromise by showing skin.

Kevin Costner should not be here plus water world is a movie that you can watch possibly a 3rd time

Ok but...how are these types of videos even made? Does someone just write down a list of movies and actors that they "kinda" don't like and then boom, "TOP 10 ACTORS WHO RUINED THEIR CAREERS!"

I'm sorry but League was fucking amazing and everyone loved Catwoman.

I thought it weird and disappointing that Neve Campbell didn't go nude in Wild Things. Then years latter she did go nude in I Really Hate My Job and it all made sense. It wasn't that she didn't want to go nude in Wild Things it was just that the director knew no one was going to want to see that train wreck.

Wild Things wasnt a bad film 64% on RT, but it did hurt Campbell's career, "League" wasn't a bad film, and absolutely did nothing to tarnish Connery's 60 year career, Waterworld did hurt Costner, ALOT, look where he was and what he did afterwards...
Willie Beal (29 days ago)
It fucking was a bad film

I'm surprised they didn't choose Finding Forrester for Connery, the "You're The Man Now Dog" scene at the end is so cringeworthy it became it's own internet meme
Mason Hawks (1 month ago)
Sean Connery intended extraordinary gentleman to be his swan song, that's why he asked for 16 million up front and cut of the box office.
Alex Crowder (1 month ago)
Its a bit ironic to call "man of steel" a blockbuster, considering its probably too new to have ever been in an actual blockbuster store.
Shaun Pearson (1 month ago)
Showgirls is heavily satirical and tongue-in-cheek like Verhoeven's other films and it's also hilarious.

Completely disagree with Sean Connery and League of Extraordinary Gentleman being on this list. Good movie and in no way harmed Sean Connery's career. He was great in that movie.

A lot of actors whos career's got "ruined" by a certain movie, will be able to pay bills from the royalties of those movie for the rest of their life, so, i consider that a success xD

Loved water world and league of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Looper is pretty shity for this video. Quick let's celebrate people's least finest hour. is Looper the YouTube equivalent of the National Enquirer? I don't know but after their video about actors whose careers were ended with a single movie they faded Into Obscurity when it comes to my interest.

There are so many people they missed that actually flopped

I would consider Robert Deniro's career more ruined that at lot of these actors. When he started doing stupid comedies like Meet the Fockers and terrible kids movies, I decided that I wasn't interested in anything else he was just mailing it in on. Wesley Snipes ruined his career but that was more to do with off-screen stuff. But, hands down, it has to be Hayden Christensen. His acting, if you can call it that, in Star Wars showed that he is just dreadful.
Brian Daleske (1 month ago)
I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THE IDEA OF ACTORS CAREERS BEING RUINED BY PLAYING ONE ROLE: An that is I strongly think it is very hard to believe that any actor could ever get ruined after playing just one character role. I truly think that an actor’s popularity would only be really ruined by playing more then one bad role in more then one movie. Plus to add I strongly think that the only way an actor’s career popularity is ruined by only just one movie is if they got hook on intensely addictive drugs, and to add got caught doing those dangerous drugs; You know the ones these three Harrowin, Coccane, and Crystal-Meth.

Things in all your videos are presented as absolute facts while the truth is constantly twisted into your own personal opinion ? (Not even sure if this is your opinion cause its also narrated with a static computer voice). This is half work on both ends . Just because some actors never reached there former glory again doesnt mean there careers are ruined . As an actor you also need to have some luck and after a really succesful movie/series it is near impossible to ever reach this level again. Sean Connery and Halle Barry in this list !? Are you serious ? Doesnt take a genious to figure out theyre fine .

Kevin Costner? Sean Connery? Halle Berry? Seriously?? They're some of the most acclaimed actors of all time! This video is ridiculous!
Mary Smith (1 month ago)
Well, acclaimed may be too strong a word, Dee McGee. But I agree they have kept on working, except for Sean, who at his age can be forgiven for retiring on his laurels and fat stack. The commentator for this piece is wack. I am not even sure I like the idea of declaring an actor out of commission unless their IMDB shows no activity for at least 4 or 5 years. It's almost like picking on an actor. Or, is it meant to be flattery? Any publicity is good publicity?
Scott Cozart (1 month ago)
Kevin Costner is still one of the best actors in the world.
