Kylie Minogue is one of Australia's finest singers with over a decade worth of experience and many awards to make her an A-list entertainer. She is also known as a fashion icon, an occasional actress, and a TV personality.

The 52-year-old continues to win the love of millions of people to date with her powerful vocals, however, her skills as an actress are up for debate. Minogue has tried to break into the movie business over the years and she's well aware of her faults.

HER "DISASTROUS" ACTING

Her acting diss came in 2012 when her latest movie "Holy Motors" was about to hit the cinemas. Many were surprised that the 52-year-old slammed herself rather than promote the movie.

Minogue has been in movies such as "Bio-Dome," "Sample People," and popular movies like "Moulin Rouge." She also co-starred with Claude Van Damme in "Street Fighter."
