LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Director Michael Moore, whose anti-Iraq (news - web sites) war film "Fahrenheit 9/11" sparked a firestorm of controversy before becoming a post-election footnote, topped an annual list on Monday of Hollywood's "coldest" celebrities.
The outspoken documentarian, who seemed to be everywhere during the 2004 U.S. presidential campaign, urging defeat of President Bush (news - web sites), ranks No. 1 on this year's "Frigid 50" roster of lackluster stars published by online movie magazine FilmThreat.com.
The Web site, known for an anti-establishment take on the entertainment industry, said its list names the stars it found to be the "the polar opposite of the hottest celebrities: these are the least powerful, least-inspiring, least-intriguing people in Hollywood."
Ranked No. 2 was actress Halle Berry (news), who followed up her Oscar-winning turn in "Monster's Ball" with less critically lauded roles in such films as "Gothica" and "Catwoman."

Feh. Can we try not to give this lardy blowhard more than his freakin 15 minutes?
Ironically, he tops the list of stars in gravitational force.
One thru ten did not work.. for me
Walt Disney Co. chief executive Michael Eisner was ranked No. 3 on the list, which cited this year's revolt by dissident shareholders, a hostile takeover bid by Comcast, public spats with Pixar and Miramax and a string of such flops as "Home on the Range, "The Alamo" and "Hidalgo."
He was followed at No. 4 by director M. Night Shyamalan whose latest thriller, "The Village" and its "surprise ending" were widely seen as falling far short of the pre-release hype.
Comic actors and frequent co-stars Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson were jointly listed at No. 5 for their appearances in a recent string of "mass-produced mediocrity."
Rounding out the top 10 were: Reese Witherspoon (a "Little Miss Cutesy-Wutesy" whose recent "Vanity Fair" role offered a "disastrous full view of her limitations as an actress"); Jimmy Fallon (news) ("The guy most notorious for blowing his lines on 'Saturday Night Live' crossed over to the big screen in 'Taxi' -- and nobody cared"); Paris Hilton ("She's like a computer virus out of control and she must be stopped") and Ben Affleck (news) ("He's been cursed with the incredible shrinking career").
He had a cameo role in America's Team as a suicide bomber.
Sorry to see Mell and W on the list...
WOW! I have a 1975 Guinness Book of Records that has that picture. I haven't seen that since I was a kid!
I know...saw that too....
Julia Roberts should be on the list IMHO.
"FahrenBLIGHT 9/11" gives new meaning to the word disengenuous, and sets a new record for continuing 'disingenuousness' in a CRAP-umentary. Is there a Golden Globes category for that?
If you think "FahrenBLIGHT 9/11 was a 'disingenuousness' in a CRAP-umentary, wait for the sequel Moore is making..."FahrenBLIGHT 9/11 Returns"
