Who is the worst actor of all time?

People are always debating about what the best things are, and for actors and actresses, it’s no different. Names like Daniel Day-Lewis, Marlon Brando, Meryl Streep and Katharine Hepburn are always tossed around as the highest of the high–but how about the lowest of the low?

This brilliant piece of WOAT-data journalism courtesy of Vox tries to settle the score once and for all using critic rating data and a few other markers to determine who is really, really bad at their jobs. Topping the male list are Rob Schneider and Adam Sandler, which is probably what everyone expected when they read my headline. For women, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jessica Alba have the dishonor of starring in the worst movies.

There are some quirks in these lists–Nicolas Cage makes a surprising appearance–but on the whole this piece is a great read and worth checking out.
