Which actor or actress is like nails on a chalkboard to you? Who do you avoid at all costs? In the September 1992 issue of Movieline magazine, the writers asked a bunch of random moviegoers which stars they found the most annoying. Some of the answers will probably surprise you. Some, not so much. Whether you agree with their selections or not, these fans came up with some pretty funny quotes about their least favorite actors.
