What famous person gets on your nerves?

I don't hob nob with celebrities or the movers and shakers of the world. I lead a very quiet life.

Jill, 60

Bobcat Goldwait, Paula Poundstone, Fran Dresher all have annoying voices. If I thought about for a good deal longer, I am sure I could come up with at least 3 dozen.

President Bush. Listening to him speak annoys me because it seems that he has had to be so intensely coached so as not to make a grave error in his speech...such as "they have misunderestimated me," (this one quoted during a speech in Arkansas in November). Come ON. I cringe when Isee (hear) him speak. It's like waiting for the next blooper. Dana Carvey could and probably

Most PEOPLE don't get on my nerves but lately George Bush has been bothering me with his holier-than-thou attitude but I don't know if that will continue.The only thing I can think of that really bugs me is professional wrestling. (My apologies to those of you who enjoy that kind of stuff, especially you-know-who-you-are.) When that comes on the TV, I ASAP.

Cameron Diaz

Strom Thurmond
Jesse Helms
Al Sharpton

Jim Carrey.

Karen, 21

There are so many. I guess a short list would include Richard Simmons, Rosie O'Donnel, pro wrestler Chyna, film critic Micheal Medved, talk show host Craig Kilborn and the obligatory Kathie Lee Gifford.

Alias Irrelevante

Sarah Jessica Parker. I used to think she was OK, but she was so annoying on the awards show last night that I've see enough of her for quite a while!

Tracy, 24
Ocean City

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Carrot Top, Jerry Springer, Taylor Dane, Ben Stein, Ally McBeal, Rush Limbaugh, Emenem, Howard Stern, Hitler, Linda Tripp, Julia Roberts, Julia Louise Dryfuss, Jerry Seinfield, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Axel Rose, Joan & Melissa Rivers, Alan Alda, Paula Abdul, Terri   Garr, Pauley Shore, Gabe Kaplan, Dennis Miller, Janeane Garofalo, Gary Shandling, John Lennon

Not that there's only one, but the answer I'll give here is Regis. I don't think I have to explain why.

Firelady, 23

Well, she's not exactly famous, but Judge Judy gets on my nerves a lot...she's evil... lol

Jeremy, 13

Melanie Griffith really annoys me with that soft, ditzy voice and the fact that she still thinks that she is the hottest thing ever. I think her husband...I can't even think of his name right now....is a complete dork and a bad actor. She is so protective of him, like anyone would want him anyway! I liked Joe Lieberman when Gore first chose him as a running mate. Now he really bothers me! He has that whiny, smarmy voice and those disgusting thin lips remind me of the Grinch or a lizard! Yuck! I can't remember the details, but I thought his little speeches to the media during the voting disaster were whiny, unfair and unprofessional. I wanted to slap him upside the head! His remarks definately did not help me feel sympathetic toward  Gore's situation! I turn the channel when he's on tv now!

Susan, 32

Britney Spears

Melodi, 19

Calista Flockhart, ick.

Maggie, 20

Anyone who's really fake, or a sell-out.

There are a few famous people that get on my nerves.  I'll start with Brittany Spears, and all those other teeny-bopper people. LLKool J has always gotten on my nerves. Ricky Martin is sexy, and he has a great smile, but when I watch him perform, he seems so...puppet-on-a-stringish. You know? I think if he really got to make his own music or write his own songs, I believe he would have a totally different image. And the most annoying of all is preachers that get on television to make money, running around with pink hair and toupes, and so much make-up, that they have to chisel it off at night, dressing like a beauty queen, and skipping around acting like a little girl.  Not to say that some of them don't mean well. But do they really need their church, their studios, and their houses to be so extravegant? I could go on for hours, but I won't.

Lisa J., 22

George W. Bush :)

Talia, 23

Dubya. He's an idiot.

A-Dog, 18

Off hand I would say Barbara Streisand, because she emits a strong air of arrogance about her, and Richard Gere, who is always talking about Tibet, and seems to be rambling about something. I think this Hollywood types should take a less from the Rock: "Know your role, and shut your mouth!"

Bruno, 31
, CO   USA

Kathy Lee Gifford- She is just creepy happy.

Stephanie, 25

Al Sharpton. When I see him on TV, I have to change the channel.

Janet, 42

All of those boy bands and pop singing girls. They piss me off with their fake images.

Angela, 16
, SC   USA

Jennifer Love Hewitt. I don't know what it is about her, but I avoid everything she's endorsed with. I don't think she's all cracked up to what everyone believes she is.

Karen2, 15

I hate Kathy Lee Gifford more than I ever want to hate anyone. . .I'd actually take pleasure out of kicking her in the teeth repeatedly. . . (Kelly Ripa Forever!!!!!!)

mothmc, 36

I would have to say...Britney Spears. There's just something about her that makes me cringe.
