Whether you’re watching an all-time classic or a new release, there always seems to be an unforgettably annoying movie character who makes you cringe whenever he/she/it is on-screen. The frantic urge to hit the mute button makes one want to seek stress relief from the dire comic relief provided…

The confusion of figuring out whether these character’s are purposefully meant to be annoying or whether it’s the actor’s performance which doesn’t do the character justice doesn’t seem to make a difference on how painful they are to watch. Whether it’s intended from the filmmakers or the cast, there’s no denying the pain these characters have caused viewers the world over.

Here are 10 of the most annoying movie characters of all time, characters that made us want to crawl into the nearest corner and weep, rocking back and forth until they weren’t appearing on screen. And then when they came back, we’d go and do it all over again.



10. Derek Zoolander in Zoolander (2001)

“I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is.”

OMG he is really, really, really annoying!

OK…Maybe Zoolander is a guilty pleasure of mine, but on a serious note, WHO would want to know a REAL-LIFE Derek Zoolander!? The dude needs a slap! He is so pretentious, even though essentially he is a walking canvas for designers to showcase their work on. Although Ben Stiller successfully portrays a satirical version of a painfully vain and dimwitted male model, I’m not sure I would be as amused if confronted with a spitting image of Derek Zoolander who puts Victoria Beckham’s pout to shame!
