15 Actors Who Played Villains So Well People Now Hate Their Guts In The Real World

Most people who are into movies root for the leading heroes. This admiration is obvious considering the selfless and heroic personalities of such characters. However, very few people appreciate the villain for his intelligence, looks, or any other attribute for that matter. Although, it bodes well to say, the more intensely you hate a character, the better villain they turned out to be. Actors who play such villains take these emotions in compliment. Tom Felton once revealed in an interview that the kids who visited the set didn’t want to meet him. He took this response positively towards his role, and why not? He’s the best bully ever! However, there are also certain cases where the impact of a particular character is so profound that people can’t help but feel repelled by the actors playing them.
