10 Actors Who Cannot Stand Their Movies
As a rule, actors speak positively of their works, even if their ratings are low. Yet there are exceptions: some celebrities cannot stand their movies regardless of their success.
Bright Side will tell you about the actors who, for whatever reason, don’t like their movies.
1. Daniel Radcliffe — Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
The actor has literally grown up on a movie set because the production of 8 Harry Potter movies took 10 years. Daniel got into the role of the young wizard so much we can hardly imagine anyone else in his place. However, the actor himself treats his work much more critically than any spectator. He said he hates the 6th movie because his acting there was awful.
2. Robert Pattinson — Twilight
Surprisingly, Pattinson, who became known thanks to his role in Twilight, simply cannot stand this saga. There’s even a blog dedicated to the actor’s statements, where he comments on his movies in the most unflattering manner. "The more I read the script, the more I hated this guy. Plus, he’s a 108-year-old virgin, so he’s obviously got some issues there."
3. George Clooney — Batman & Robin
It’s hard to argue with the fact that Clooney is a great actor. Yet you can find failures even in his impressive filmography. For example, the 1997 Batman & Robin was so unsuccessful that no one dared to shoot new Batman movies for 8 years. And George Clooney himself decided to apologize to those who watched it. "I met Adam West (Batman from the series of the ’60s) and apologized to him. Sorry about the nipples on the suit."
4. Halle Berry — Catwoman
The movie caused a lot of criticism and, as a result, won several Golden Raspberry awards, one of which went to Halle as the worst actress. Unlike most of the award winners, Halle Berry appeared at the ceremony in person and gave a speech that included the words "I want to thank Warner Brothers for putting me in a piece-of-shit, god-awful movie."
5. Alec Guinness — Star Wars
Sir Alec Guinness once called Star Wars "fairy-tale rubbish," but we forgive him for that. After all, he received his first Oscar 20 years before the first movie of the original trilogy came out. Guinness didn’t consider Obi-Wan’s role to be a serious work, and the dialogues of the characters irritated him.
6. Sean Connery — James Bond movies
"I have always hated that damn James Bond. I’d like to kill him." These words belong to Sean Connery himself. According to Sir Sean, James Bond quickly became a parody of himself. It’s believed that the actor’s dislike of James Bond made him donate all his money from Diamonds Are Forever to charity.
7. Sandra Bullock — Speed 2: Cruise Control
The actress regrets participating in this not-so-successful movie and thinks she shouldn’t act in sequels: "If you look back on my illustrious sequel work, nothing has proven successful."
8. Bill Murray — Garfield
The actor thought the script (that he didn’t even read to the end) was written by Joel Coen and immediately agreed to the role because he’d always liked movies by the Coen brothers. In fact, the author was not one of the brothers but another scriptwriter with a similar name (Joel Cohen). As a result, Murray agreed to work on a movie that turned out to be quite different than he had expected and regretted it.
9. Jim Carrey — Kick-Ass 2
Jim Carrey rethought his participation in this movie after the Sandy Hook tragedy, when a young man started shooting at an elementary school. The actor said that, though he’s not ashamed of the role of Colonel, he doesn’t support violence, especially on this scale.
10. Chloë Grace Moretz — Red Shoes & the 7 Dwarfs
This animated picture hasn’t yet come out, and it already received a deluge of criticism. Including from Jim Carrey’s colleague on Kick-Ass 2, Chloë Grace Moretz. And all because of the slogan of the advertising campaign, ridiculing appearance shortcomings: "What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 Dwarfs not so short?"
And here’s another reason why actors sometimes hate their movies:
Margot Robbie told how her Suicide Squad outfit gave her a lot of trouble. Not only because it was cold wearing it — it was sticking to her body and showing. The actress even tried to convince the director to change Harley’s suit for something more comfortable, but he didn’t agree, saying that other clothes don’t match the character’s image. Well, this is an actor’s fate: they always have to sacrifice something for the sake of art.
