The list of famous top 10 Hollywood movie villains is purely evil, but truth to be spoken, a movie is incomplete unless there is at least one bad boy to root against. Indeed they are despised by everybody and nobody respects their agenda, but it’s a matter of fact that our babble about a movie always contains the character description of baddies. Scroll down to check who got the rudest deals of all and shed your opinion in the comments.

1. Mr. Potter (It’s a Wonderful Life)

A coldly analytical and indisputably a remorseless man, Mr. Potter is the perfect reference for your all questions regarding the traits of a villain. In the movie It’s a Wonderful Life, Mr. Potter is a mean banker as well as an apathetic, heartless and out-and-out evil man. The major motives of Mr. Potter are greed, money and to rise to the top in business by crushing all his competitors. To rise above the rest, he can do almost anything but his methods are never praiseworthy.

2. Wicked Witch of the West (The Wizard of OZ)

The Wicked Witch of the West is indeed one of the most famous villains of Hollywood movies you’d love to hate. Considered as the cunning female villains in Hollywood movies even today, the Wicked Witch of the West is the reason for everything that goes wrong with Dorothy Gale, the protagonist of the historical movie The Wizard of OZ.

3. Nurse Ratched (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest)

However, Nurse Ratched is disguised as someone good but her methodologies are contrived to change the complete happiness of patients to utter destruction in a fraction of a second. Comprising a plethora of villainous and evil traits, Nurse Ratched knows the power that she has over her patients and has no hesitation whatsoever to do what it takes to keep intact her authority. Her evil deeds and humiliating characteristics are enough to make her a popular villain of Hollywood movies around the world today.
