You could also call these lists "Actors and Actresses with the Worst Agents." Because it could be that too in some cases.
Seriously, on the actors list, Cuba Gooding, Jr. is not a bad actor. It's just post-Jerry McGuire his choice of projects has been terrible. Statham has appeal in his lane as an action star. He'll never win an Oscar, but he's good at what he does. Vince Vaughn, a decent enough actor, over the years has gotten fairly lazy and phones in a lot of performances these days. Stallone is a good actor who has been in a lot of turkeys over the years. Slater and Hartnett are also pretty good actors, who fair much better on TV--Slater on Mr. Robot and Hartnett on Penny Dreadful. And you could write a book about the life and films of Nic Cage, a really fine actor and the best one of this list, who because of his poor financial dealings, will do any script at all for money. Butler is sort of like a low-rent Cage. He's a good actor with some range, but his choice of projects is poor. The rest of the folks belong on the list.
As for actresses, Love Hewitt, Silverstone, Parker, and Lopez are better TV actresses than film actresses. Sharon Stone is perhaps underrated, but again, she never was picky about good projects. Hayek, Berry, and Kunis are in that same boat--once an Oscar/Golden Globe nominee but poor choice of films. Cameron Diaz has some big-screen appeal, but her choice of films has been really scattershot. And then there's the case of the very-appealing-on-screen Katherine Heigl who is just such a nasty person in real life that no one wants to work with her or see her films. The rest of the folks belong on the list.

I have to disagree with Statham, Stallone, earlier Charlie Sheen, Hartnett and Jennifer Lopez being on that list. I haven't seen much of Charlie Sheen lately, other than a few episodes of Anger Management, which really wasn't that great of a show. I am not really a fan of Lopez, but she is a decent actress, and I enjoy the tv show Shades of Blue (Ray Liotta actually drew me in) which has season 2 coming up soon. Crash, I agree with everything you said.
