Brie Larson's a good actress, right?

She even won the Oscar for Best Actress for the absolutely gut-wrenching Room back in 2015, the movie which, quite rightly, launched her career into the stratosphere.

But it seems she didn't impress everybody. Oh, and neither has Amy Adams. Or Michael B. Jordan. Or Bradley Cooper. All rubbish.

That's according to a brief but unequivocal list piece on US site Jezebel which is currently raising a few eyebrows on social media.

It lists a group of Hollywood stars who 'are not really good actors, contrary to what you might think'.

Here's the list in full:

Brie Larson

Jennifer Lawrence

Michael B. Jordan

Nicholas Cage

John Travolta

Kristen Stewart

Daniel Radcliffe

Adam Sandler

Gwyneth Paltrow

Vin Diesel

Chloë Grace Moretz

Emma Watson

Anthony Mackie

Jessica Alba

Amy Adams

Armie Hammer

Mark Wahlberg

Kevin Costner

Bradley Cooper

Scarlett Johansson

Ashton Kutcher

Chris Evans

Ansel Elgort

Gal Gadot

Angelina Jolie

Sienna Miller

OK, some of this lot are better than others, but nonetheless, the almost exclusively brutal court of public opinion has been uncharacteristically generous on this occasion.

Ooof.

That said, we can perhaps agree that Vin Diesel's Oscar speech isn't coming out of his top pocket any time soon.

But no one - NO ONE - disses Nicolas Cage. Not on our watch.
