When it comes to giving their unapologetic opinion about every topic, nothing comes near Reddit. You can ask literally any question, no matter how absurd and weird it is, you are gonna get a lot of different opinions in a matter of minutes or at least hours.
So recently, a Reddit user by the name of trpclshrk uploaded a question asking, “Who is a well known actor/actress that you never see having chemistry with their co-stars?”
From all the answers that were commented on in this particular Reddit thread, we here at GetTheFeed selected the top 20 most popular ones. So all you need to do is scroll down below to know who these celebs are.
1. Dwayne Johnson With Emily Blunt – Jungle Cruise
“The Rock [is an] extremely charismatic guy but has zero romantic/sexual chemistry with any leading women. He does have good platonic chemistry with other co-stars though.”
2. Lauren London With Jonah Hill – You People
“Such a terrible movie. Honestly, it felt like the other actor was turned off by Jonah Hill the whole movie. I’ve never [seen] worse chemistry between two actors playing a couple. The chemistry was so bad that they CGI’d the kiss at the end of the film.” – u/Tomorrowsup
3. Mark Ruffalo With Scarlett Johansson – Avengers: Age Of Ultron
“I feel like Johansson could have sexual tension with a brick wall, but Mark Ruffalo is giving absolutely nothing here. Their relationship comes out of nowhere and makes no sense, especially for Natasha. It just falls so flat for me, and it’s no wonder they dropped the relationship after this film.”
4. Keanu Reeves With Carrie-Anne Moss – The Matrix
“The Matrix ‘love story’ was always a bit out of left field. We never really see Neo and Trinity bond over anything or have any type of connection. I was also like ‘love him? You’ve barely even talked and most of your interactions thus far have been aggressive and cold.’ I guess a lot happened off screen that the audience isn’t aware of, but it would be nice to have been shown as well.” – u/Charosas
5. Ansel Elgot With Rachel Zegler – West Side Story
“[Ansel’s] turn in West Side Story was simply awful, IMO. I found his scenes with Rachel Zegler so flat and boring that they almost spoiled the whole film for me. Then, the film cuts to Ariana DeBose and she is electrifying in every scene in the film, reminding you what charisma actually looks like. The contrast between the two could not have been more stark.”
6. Jennifer Lopez With Owen Wilson – Marry Me
This rom-com plot was pretty standard and formulaic, but sometimes that’s what makes rom-coms great. Sometimes you just want to turn on a silly, cute movie and turn off your mind for a bit. But that only works if the two leads are charismatic and have good chemistry. In this movie…that just wasn’t the case.
J.Lo is believable as a superstar, and Owen Wilson is believable as an everyman, but they are NOT believable at all as a couple. I know that’s kind of the point, but I can’t get past it. They’re supposed to have chemistry and a connection against all odds, but they just don’t. – u/Visible_Writing7386
7. Cara Delevinge With Dane Dehaan – Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets
“The CGI alien girl in the first 10 minutes was more compelling [than Delevingne]. By far. And as bad as Dane DeHaan was, he was much better than her. Most of my problems with him would disappear if he stopped trying to convince us that his voice was an octave lower than it really is.” – u/DeylanQuel
8. Daniel Radcliffe With Bonnie Wright – Harry Potter
This always frustrated me because they have SO MUCH CHEMISTRY in the books. Harry’s temper is a lot worse in the books, and Ginny is the only one who matches how fiery he is. She’s such a great character in the books, and then she’s completely bland in the films. The relationship isn’t built up at all, and it just feels like Harry’s kissing his sister. – No-Victory-94
9. Natalie Portman With Chris Hemsworth – Thor
“I like [Portman]. She’s a good actor. But if you don’t have chemistry with Thor (among others in her filmography), then I dunno. She just seems like she doesn’t really want to be around any of her male co-stars?” – u/preferstheaisleseat
10. Cate Blanchett With Brad Pitt – The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button
“Cate Blanchett sometimes. It makes sense when she’s cast for a more powerful, aloof, or icy role (she’s wonderful in all). But something like her role in Benjamin Button, she and Brad Pitt had no chemistry.” – u/TacoBellWerewolf
11. Natalie Portman With Hayden Christiansen – Star Wars
I mean, the dialogue isn’t doing them any favors here, but they’re also not selling it (though I’m willing to blame the direction as well). Their relationship isn’t believable at all, and every scene with them slogs on and makes you bored. Considering Anakin’s entire arc is centered around worrying for Padmé’s safety, their flat chemistry is just glaringly atrocious. – u/WiFiForeheadWrinkles
12. Katherine Heigl With Alexis Bledel – Jenny’s Wedding
“If you want to see the unsexiest movie possible, try Jenny’s Wedding, with [Katherine] Heigl and Alexis Bledel. They are supposed to be lovers. They seem like acquaintances in the film. I think I have never seen such a nonsexual ‘lovers’ couple on film.”- u/LucyRiversinker
13. Anne Hathaway With Christian Bale – The Dark Knight Rises
“[Hathaway] is a very good actor with incredible charisma, but to me, she never seems to have a spark with her romantic on-screen partners. Her casting as Catwoman was the weirdest one, as Selina is a character who is supposed to have chemistry with anything bar noble gas.” – u/MoonlightHarpy
14. Katherine Heigl With James Marsden – 27 Dresses
“[Heigl] is my choice. I’m even prepared to ask people to reeeaaaalllly think about the bar scene in 27 Dresses. It’s cute. It’s sweet. But chemistry? Ehhhh.” – u/idontwantanamern
15. Tom Cruise With Demi Moore – A Few Good Men
“Tom Cruise was the first person I thought of. I like his performance, but I am very aware that he is an actor; he just doesn’t seem genuine. And his intensity comes into play. I am very conscious that he is pretending to be what he thinks a good dad would be like in War of the Worlds.
In Cocktail, Edge of Tomorrow, etc, I don’t buy his relationships. I think this may be a reason why there was no relationship between him and Demi Moore in A Few Good Men. I just don’t think he can pull it off.” – u/BookerTea3
16. Chris Evans With Ana De Armas – Ghosted
“That one movie with Chris Evans seems like a two-hour charisma vacuum.” – u/——–rook
17. Tom Cruise With Renée Zellweger – Jerry Maguire
“I watched Jerry Maguire recently, and well, one, that movie is a lot weirder than I expected, and two, Renée carried that romance subplot on her back. I didn’t believe Cruise was into her at all, and the ‘you complete me’ scene is so cringe and unbelievable to me.”- u/t_town20
18. Tom Cruise With Nicole Kidman – Eyes Wide Shut
“I don’t ever see any romantic chemistry with Tom Cruise and his female leads. I see more romantic chemistry with his male costars — Top Gun, for example.” – u/Nobodycares2022
“Cruise really doesn’t do romantic chemistry well. He didn’t even have any on screen with his own wife at the time in Eyes Wide Shut.” – u/davidsverse
19. Jennifer Lawrence With Josh Hutcherson – The Hunger Games
“This one is stranger to me because Josh and Jennifer seem to have such good friend chemistry, and I figured that would count for at least something onscreen. I know the whole point is Katniss is doing it for the show in the first film, but she’s supposed to really fall for him eventually, and I never felt that. It was just never believable that Katniss had any sort of romantic or sexual feelings for Peeta (though I do buy she cared about him).” – No-Victory-94
20. Arnold Schwarzenegger With Sharon Stone – Total Recall
“I love [Arnold], but I’ve never believed him in any of his romantic scenes. His ‘chemistry’ with Sharon Stone in Total Recall is particularly memorable for it’s hollowness.” – u/Linsel
Well, there you go; this is what happens when you propose a question to the black hole of endless opinions that is Reddit.
