When it comes to celebs people adore, there are always some folks who simply aren't fans.

So, when redditor u/PythonButSnake recently asked, "Who is a universally loved celebrity who you don't like?" people shared popular celebs they can't stand — and WHY — and honestly, it's pretty fascinating.

Here are the surprising results:

1. Zooey Deschanel

"I find her ‘gee golly, I’m quirky’ personality to be off-putting. I also just frankly dislike her singing voice."


2. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

"I actually enjoy The Rock as an actor, but his offscreen personality reeks of selling out. I think he realized he’s 'The Guy' right now and can pretty much put his name on any product or movie and make a killing. Do I blame him? No, but it’s incredibly annoying and has made me like him much less."


3. Shaquille O'Neal

"I pissed off Shaq one time when I was 18 and working at Target off I-95 back in, like, 2009 or 2010. He was looking for a cord to go from his phone to a TV in his tour bus. We unfortunately did not have one, and he got PISSED. Being only a 5’6" dude, I was terrified. His friend/security guy with him had to calm him down. Me and a few other associates starting calling every store around us, trying to find one for him. He called me 'Big Dave' before I pissed him off, and I was too afraid to ask him for a picture or autograph after, LOL. I hated him for the longest time. I don’t hate him anymore, but I'm still not a huge fan. I still want an apology from him, LOL."


4. Chip and Joanna Gaines

"They have F**KED with housing decor and trends so bad. Everything looks the same now. I work in preservation, and it’s depressing seeing the beauty torn out for the same garbage gray floors, gray walls, white lights, open floor concept, etc."


5. Beyoncé

"Everyone talks of her like a queen. Honestly, my personal opinion is that her songs are sh*t, but that's just me."


6. Zac Efron

"I was a worker at a hotel where they were filming a movie, and Zac Efron was there. Treated us like doormats and was completely belittling. Made a housekeeper cry. F**k that guy."


7. Maya Rudolph

"While everyone seems to adore her, Maya Rudolph was pretty nasty to me when she came into my shop with her friends (or family members? No idea). And I want to add, I was just a dumb kid who didn't immediately recognize her and didn't gush over diamonds, which seemed to offend her for some reason. This was a jewelry store, she was looking at every stone that was decidedly not a diamond, and I was trying to agree that other stones could be more beautiful and meaningful than diamonds. Apparently, that was the wrong thing to say and warranted going out of her way to make me look bad in front of everyone. Great job — I was, like, 19. Sure learned a lesson from that."


8. Jim Carrey

"Everyone thinks of him as a lighthearted goof who makes funny faces on camera. It was a shock when I found out he's so good at being a dumbass on film because I think he's a dumbass in real life. Pre-COVID, he promoted misinformation about some childhood vaccines, incorrectly suggesting that they may cause autism. I've lost all respect for the man."


9. Oprah

"I used to be indifferent, but when I watched her Markle interview, she came across as so fake."


"Her voice. The way she puts herself on the cover of every issue of her magazine. Something about her feels fishy, forced, and narcissistic."


10. Keanu Reeves


Steve Jennings / Getty Images

"I wouldn't say that I 'don't like' him — by all accounts he seems to be a fantastic person. Honestly, though, he isn't a particularly good actor at all. In some roles, however, his bland, robotic style can add a little something."


11. Will Smith


Paras Griffin / Getty Images

"People hate on his kids, but if you listen to how he talks to/about them, it’s a wonder they came out functioning at all. That, and the constant articles about his and Jada’s sex life."


12. Zoë Kravitz


John Shearer / WireImage / Getty Images

"Worked in a shop that Zoë Kravitz came into. She was an a-hole — snotty and pretentious."


13. Will Ferrell


Dominik Bindl / WireImage / Getty Images

"So annoying. He plays essentially the same character in every movie and has no depth. I cannot stand Elf. You heard me."


14. Leonardo DiCaprio


Taylor Hill / FilmMagic / Getty Images

"If you really fell in love with a woman that’s half your age, fine. But if the only category of people that you are willing to date are women in their early 20s, even though you are almost 50 now, this really makes me doubt your character."


15. Adele

"She is always f**king screaming in every song. I cannot listen to her anymore."


16. Lin-Manuel Miranda


Bruce Glikas / Getty Images / Getty Images

"I have zero reason to dislike him, and this is 100% a me thing — he just puts me off."


17. And finally: Ryan Reynolds


Theo Wargo / Getty Images

"I find his whole vibe obnoxious. His smirk and attempt at humor. 'Look at how normal my wife and I are. We’re just like you!' Everyone sees him as a down-to-earth guy, but it has always felt disingenuous to me."


"Ryan Reynolds’ brand of humor is really annoying and unoriginal. Went to high school with several guys who were just like him, and they made me want to shove kebab skewers into my ears."
