Which Actors Do People Hate On, But They're Actually Really, Really Talented?

This is a Kristen Stewart fan account.

If you're anything like me, then you probably watch a lot of TV and movies, and that means you definitely have a few favorite actors.

Miramax Films

But sometimes the general public doesn't always agree on who's "talented" or not. Some people just don't have good taste, tbh!

Warner Bros. Pictures / Lionsgate

For example, people always discredited Blake Lively's acting skills because she was on Gossip Girl, but I remember watching The Town in theaters and being genuinely blown away by her talent. She then re-confirmed my correct assumption in A Simple Favor.

Maybe you think Kristen Stewart is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood, but some people refuse to believe it because they didn't like the Twilight series.

Paramount Vantage

I've never seen Twilight, but I have seen several other Kristen Stewart movies where she's a true tour de force. You can't watch Into the Wild, Still Alice, Clouds of Sils Maria, Seberg, or even the new Charlie's Angels reboot without recognizing her talent. You just can't!

And while we're here, the same goes for Robert Pattinson! We continue to stan.

Perhaps you watched a movie like Fences and were amazed by Viola Davis and Denzel Washington's performances, but you also thought Stephen McKinley Henderson was equally award-worthy.

Paramount Pictures

You'd be correct in thinking so! He's a criminally underrated actor.

Or maybe you fell in love with a few actors who basically carried an entire TV series on their back, and you're now waiting for the day they get their deserved praise.

MTV / Fox Searchlight Pictures

Dylan O'Brien did what he had to do in Teen Wolf! And let's please acknowledge that Shailene Woodley filmed The Secret Life of the American Teenager (lol) and her should-be Oscar-nominated performance in The Descendants at the same time...proof that she can do anything when she has a good script in front of her.

It's time to speak your truth. In the comments below, tell us which actors you think are SO much more talented than people give them credit for (and why you think so!!!!).

Annapurna Pictures / Netflix

I will defend Lakeith Stanfield, Rachel McAdams, and Zac Efron until the day I die!

The best responses will be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
