The results are in, and Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen have netted the 'most unconvincing on-screen chemistry' title. Their performance in Attack of the Clones failed to have you sighing in your seats. The film buffs among you subjected the list to much discussion:

Entrapment. Although Connery can still walk unaided, surely he is still within (the lower end of) her target age range?

Perfectly believable :P

The inclusion of Eyes Wide Shut is particularly significant because Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were actually married at the time. I guess signs of a divorce were already showing! I haven't seen it, mind you.

Only first? I would have imagined that Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen should secured at least the top three slots. I personally thought it was that bad.

Personally I found her love-interest more believable in Leon. But maybe we shouldn't go there.

Colin Jackson


Let's break it down:

1. Hayden Christensen = can't act

2. Ben Affleck = can't act and Jennifer Lopez = can't act

3. Orlando Bloom = can't act

4. Madonna = can't act

5. Catherine Zeta Jones = can't act and Sean Connery = can act but only 1 character in different forms.

6. Hugh Grant = bloody irritating and Andie MacDowell = can't act

7. Ben Affleck = can't act

8. Tom Cruise = can't act

Come now, Lloyd. If being able to act was a requirement to be an actor there'd hardly be any left. Hang on, maybe it's not such a bad idea after all. Similarly, perhaps being able to write should be necessary to be a journalist.

...I'd better shut up before I put myself out of a job. ®
