Here, for your consideration, are the top five portrayals of one of the smarmiest young men ever to have graced English literature. I am referring, of course, to none other than Pride and Prejudice’s own Mr Collins, the distant cousin of the Bennetts who manages to mansplain his way into offending every female sensibility possible. Even 150 years later, this character is as relatable and repugnant to modern women as ever.
I am also limiting this to the top five portrayals of this iconic shitlord because there’s no way in hell that I’m listing all 100+ film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice. Ain’t nobody got time for that, especially for the much-loathed Mr. Collins.
May the best (worst) man win!
