    I really like the MCU movies but every time I see her in it I can't help but be reminded of what a horrible person she is. Not just crazy, but an outright scammer.

    Her acting isn't terrible?
    She's a female entrepreneur and that's a big deal apparently?
    There wouldn't be an amusing Jontron video without her?

    She's basically a snake oil salesperson. Conning tons of vulnerable people into buying her crap. And the weirdest thing is she has no reason to do any of this, she's probably financially set for life and even if she wasn't, with her skills it wouldn't be difficult to find a partner who would support her.

    It's like scientology and other weird cults in that part of the world, I guess. Ego and fame do crazy things to people.

    I think she actually believes the complete rubbish that she tries to peddle. Not a reason to like her though, so that doesn't really answer your question.

    She's vegan and her Jackie Danny smells like candles. What's not to love?

    I quickly looked up what she's done. Seems like she has starred in some of the Marvel films, Avengers, Iron Man etc.

    What has she done wrong as per OP?

    The whole "wellness" industry is a big scam.

    But it's a legal one, so people do it.

    Cheers fellas.

    The wellness industry does seem to have MLMs and influencers written all over it. Forever Living, Juice Plus, Younique, Avon etc.

    @4k4uNuNu Do you rank every single well known person on a likeability chart?

    she stole the ops husband and let Tony Stark die. that's reason enough to hate her i'd have thought.
