10 Truly Hateful Movie Characters Who Made Your Skin Crawl
8. Tommy DeVito (Goodfellas)
Tommy DeVito is essentially a wild animal masquerading a sly mobster. Ruthless, unpredictable, and terrifyingly explosive, Joe Pesci's thoroughly memorable Goodfellas character is so hot-headed he makes Kanye West look like a man with the patience of a saint. What makes DeVito quite so hateful is that he is evidently unmoved by his own fearsome anger, bobbing along through the mob world in Goodfellas with a chuckle and squeak that demonstrates a complete lack of remorse for any of his actions. Pesci's performance as DeVito was so convincing that the actor was rewarded the Academy Award For Best Supporting Actor for the role, a far cry from his comedic performance in the likes of Lethal Weapon and My Cousin Vinny.
