A new study reviews the worst-reviewed actors in Hollywood.

Website GoCompare.com recently put a survey to see who had the worst record of movies among movie stars by analyzing Metacritic scores for each actor’s films over the last 20 years. As a result, Jessica Alba and Mike Epps were at the top of the list of the worst-reviewed actors of the previous 20 years.

Alba had an average Metacritic score of 39 out of 100, with 59% of her movies received a negative review to just 5% of positive reviews. The actress, who has starred in films such as Fantastic Four, Sin City, and Machete had a worse track record than other famous actresses including Jessica Biel, Heather Graham, and Radha Mitchell, who placed right behind her.

Meanwhile, Mike Epps topped the list of actors with a 38.3 average Metacritic score out of 100. Epps, who starred in hit movies such as Next Friday, Uncle Drew and Resident Evil: Extinction, was right ahead of Kevin Pollack, Josh Duhamel and surprisingly Robin Williams.

GoCompare gathered data from IMDb and to be eligible to appear not the list; the actor had to have appeared in at least 20 movies in the last 20 years. They also had to have a lead role in the film. An average calculated Metacritic grade based on the scores for each film.

The analysis of actors is not the first time GoCompare analyzed actors. The website previously completed a study of actors from the last ten years and tracked the highest ranking actors and actresses, with Adam Driver and Carey Mulligan topping the list. Vincent Pastore topped the list of lowest ranking actors in the last ten years.
