Reader Poll: Name an Actor Who Should Give Up Already!

Amanda_bynesAmanda Bynes fit in the weird space of time between me knowing who she was and my stepson knowing who she was.  And as such, she has decided to throw in the towel.  But the internet has been speaking, and while they're not exactly pleading Amanda to stay, they are begging others to retire as well.

Amanda_Bynes_Got_Milk_ad.preview Gawker did a fabulous piece on Ms. Bynes' decision to put the whole career of acting aside .. and really, while she may only be 24, she's been in the biz since the tender of age 12, if math serves me correctly. (It usually doesn't.)  So maybe she's earned the right to move on to bigger and better things.  Personally, once I checked out her IMDB page, I got really excited because I did know who she was! and then got really sad because I really kind of liked her.

BUT!  Not why you're here!

You're here to tell me who you believe needs to go ahead and retire as well.

Here's the five that Gawker suggested:

  1. Megan Fox
  2. Chace Crawford
  3. Miley Cyrus
  4. Jaden Smith
  5. Kristen Stewart
But that SURELY CAN'T BE ALL.  Who are you tired of seeing? (And it needn't be only teens/preteens!)

Sarah Lena feels that Betty White should retire so we can keep her in a bubble as the Remaining Golden Girl.

Nicholas Cage and Kevin Costner. They've both had good times, but I feel pretty confident in saying that they are over. Forever. Also I really hate Nicholas Cage, so, I've wanted him to disappear for awhile.

Nanette

Can I nominate Speidi? Do they technically count?

tonya

I have hated Jennifer Love Hewitt for a long long time, so I would like to see her go peacefully into that good night.

Tracey

Lyndsay Lohen! Really what does she do anymore?

Hil

Gwyneth Paltrow.

Emily

I second Nicholas Cage. Took me a millisecond. Aw.ful.

Mary Beth (Cats, Books, Life is Good)

I'd love to see someone give Kate Goselin some self respect and get her happily retired somewhere and let her pay attention to HER KIDS!

AmyC65

Darn, I keep waiting for Amanda to find her sweet spot. I have always liked the stuff I had to sit through with my tween daughter. I admire her actually SAYING she's retiring. Lest we think she's just unemployed.

Those who should follow suit?

Rob Schneider, because you can only star in your best friend's movies so many times before it's kinda pitiful.

Everybody mentioned above. Especially Cage, Costner, Lohan and Miley Cyrus. She's embarassing us all now with her "defiant transition to adulthood" that is so blatently not adult.

Kate Gosselin. It's not acting, but really neither is Lindsey or Miley's stuff either.

Suzy Q

Robert Pattinson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Tom Cruise, David Spade, Jim Belushi, Ray Romano, everyone on "The Hills," Charlie Sheen, oh god, I could go on and on...

Rachel

Charlie Sheen. GET OUT.

JellyBean

Katie Holmes. Please stop singing, you can't. Please stop your awkward dancing. Please stop acting. Please stop being photographed. Please stop being Mrs. Tom Cruise.

Issa

Gwyneth Paltrow. Uma Thurman. Ben Stiller.

I know I have others. But those three are my, I can't watch this movie because they are in it and I really don't want to have to throw something at my pretty TV, list.

Sarah Lena

OHMYGOD, y'all, I disagree with not a SINGLE comment on here! In fact, I heartily agree with all of you and will buy you a beer later, because you clearly have good taste.

Also: we watched Saw VI last night (judge if you must, but it was AWESOME), and Costas Mandylor should retire and give those CONSTANT DUCK LIPS a rest.

Kari

Nicolas Cage was my first thought as well.

Major Bedhead

Nicholas Cage - check
Ben Stiller - check
Tom Cruise - check

I'm going to add Demi Moore, Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey to my list. If they disappeared tomorrow, I would not miss them in the slightest.

LizzieV

Also agree with everyone here. (Tom should have retired before he made "Cocktail," but I'm old like that.)

And as much as I like him, Tom Hanks. Let's call TS3 a franchise wrap, and let him enjoy his laurels. Before Dan Brown writes another book!

nicole

Jennifer Lopez, go away!

Julie

Billy Bob Thornton, John Travolta and Eddie Murphy.

Christine

I would have said Nick Cage first---but I just saw him in Kick-Ass and he channelled Christopher Walken pretty well . . . though I suppose we still have Christopher Walken for that.

diamondcait

I nominate Melanie Griffith.

Darla

Can I nominate the Kardashians? All of them? PLEASSEEEE!

Jayme

Without a doubt, John Travolta. He's played the same character in the last 5 or so movies he's starred in. And they all sucked. I'll throw another vote for Tom Cruise too. Actually, as I'm tallying my list, its becoming apparent that it may be a general Scientologist thing.

Becca

I'm going to have stuff thrown at me, but Sandra Bullock. I've never liked her. She's always irritated me. The only movie I've ever seen with her in it is Ya-Ya Sisterhood, and she was just an unfortunate byproduct.

And Meg Ryan. Meg Ryan and Sandra Bullock are the two people whose movies I refuse to watch simply because they're in them. I've never seen a Meg Ryan movie (unless the last ten minutes of City of Angels counts, during which I laughed hysterically because it was so obvious).

Elizabeth

Kathy lee Gifford
Kirstie Alley
Mario Lopez

Am I right? Anyone?
