We present you with the list of the most hated characters and villains in movies ever. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice. People say that you should hate the game, not the player, but sometimes actors’ performances are so dead on, it’s really hard for the public to discern between fiction and reality.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of most hated characters and villains in movies ever from their list.
The first one is Alex DeLarge – A Clockwork Orange. What is hate? Baby please hurt me, please hurt me, some more. He’s charming and intelligent and got one hell of a look, but if you’re not soft on any of that, then you must have HATED this guy. Yes, he’s annoying AF, and an absolute creep, but he’s smart, and funny, and super yummy, I guess that’s where the dilemma hits. It took me years to understand that the sick feeling I felt towards Malcom McDowell was a mixture between teenage horny-ness, pity and disgust. Self-disgust, mostly. The next one is Scar – The Lion King. If you weren’t molested by your own uncle as a child, then Scar is definitely your most hated uncle. If you were, I’m really sorry. It was Jeremy Irons, one of my all-time favorite actors, who gave life to this unholy character, and it’s really not the first time he’s made himself severely hateful. In fact, you might remember he was quite a lousy “uncle” to Lolita, too. In any case, Scar is, by far, the most disliked Disney character and definitely one of the most hated characters and villains in movies ever. At last, but not least, we are mentioning Col. Hans Landa – Inglourious Basterds. I sure love a good psycho. This charismatic bastard is most likely the best thing about this film, and that’s saying a lot because this film is damn awesome. Christoph Waltz delivers an impeccable performance, depicting this complex and inscrutable individual. No one (not even you) can ever decipher what this extremely polite and at the same time odd character does or doesn’t know. He’s always backing his conversation partners into a corner with unsettling delicacy and subtle mockery. You can see this very clearly in this scene where he catches everybody lying through their teeth and ridicules them about it, meanwhile acting like nothing’s off.
