Why are mediocre actors praised and force fed to the public while truly talented actors are criminally underrated?

Hollywood does this all the time.

The mediocre actors fucked the producers or the investors.

Or, the mediocre actors are married to women who fucked producers for them.

Looks, OP...that's why. David Tennant is a Scottish actor who can play a wide range of roles. He has a niche on the small screen. Gerard Butler, who is a mediocre talent, has bigger name recognition and a Hollywood career of sorts.

Looks matter more than talent at times.

Talent rarely correlates with fame . Look at the popularity of the Kartrashians. Dan Brown novels sell like hotcakes despite being the literary equivalent of shit sandwiches. The entertainment industry is about making $$$, the casting couch, and nepotism, not artistic integrity. The 5% or so of the population that are genuine aesthetes are the only people who care about promoting real talent.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
