10 Actors Whose Credibility Suffered The Most In 2015

Bad reviews and big flops for a lot of talented people. Hey, it happens.

There's no real way to predict how a career in the movies is going to go. One minute you're on top of the world, winning endless plaudits and Oscars and everybody loves and adores you; the next minute you've produced three flops in a single year and have fallen into relative obscurity (both Halle Berry and Adrien Brody can absolutely testify to that, okay?). An actor has no proper control of the quality of their given filmographies, either; nobody sets out to make a bad film, after all, so when the flops and bad reviews start coming in it must be both shocking and heart-breaking in equal measure. Each and every year a whole bunch of movies are released that outright prove that a career in Hollywood is a super fickle one. What follows, then, are 10 actors who have each had a notably bad year in 2015, with most - or all - of their feature film releases having come under fire from the critics and/or failed to make an impact at the box office. What's surprising about the actors listed here is that many of them are hugely talented and famous - some of the world's biggest movie stars, even. All certified proof that, in the movie business, you never know which way the tide will turn...
