30 Onscreen Pairings That People Believe Have The Worst Sexual Chemistry Of All Time

The passion in this post is about as hot as last night's leftover pizza.

Recently, we took a look at some of the absolute best chemistry between two actors to ever grace our screens — but this, of course, led us to wonder...which actors had the absolute WORST onscreen chemistry of all time?

So we decided to ask movie lovers in our BuzzFeed Community, "What two actors had the worst onscreen chemistry in any movie, ever? Like, the worst onscreen chemistry of all time?" and they came through with answers ranging from universally agreed upon to incredibly controversial!

So, without further adieu, here are just a few of the actors people believe could've used one or two extra chemistry screen tests before being cast together:
