Making the wrong career move is something that can happen to the best of us from time to time. Whether you discovered that you majored in the wrong field in college after getting your first post-graduation job, or you take a job that pays well even though your heart’s not in it, you know the challenges of getting everything you want professionally. It may bring you comfort to know that even your favorite celebrities have been there a time or two.
There are a few stars who admit that they’ve starred in some terrible movies before. Some thought that the movie would turn out to be a good idea. Others were simply glad to be in “the business” and didn’t want to turn down work for fear of being blackballed. Many of these celebrities have gone on to have lucrative careers in Hollywood after movies that didn’t do so well in the box office. However, die-hard fans of the celebrity (and even a few haters), often bring up the fact that the star’s resume contains a few professional mistakes.
Just like your favorite celebs, there’s a chance for you to bounce back after a career-related flub. Here are 10 actors who admitted that they’ve chosen bad movie roles before.
10 Chris Pine (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit)
9 Alec Guinness (Star Wars)
8 Jessica Alba (Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer)
7 George Clooney (Batman & Robin)
6 Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music)
5 Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up)
4 Michelle Pfeiffer (Grease 2)
3 Jim Carrey (Kick-Ass 2)
2 Halle Berry (Catwoman)
1 Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck has appeared in several movies that weren’t exactly met with open arms at the box office. Aside from the disaster that was Gigli, Affleck appeared at the Marvel comic book character Daredevil, in the movie of the same name. Ben talked about how much he regretted the role during an interview with Playboy. He states that this is the only movie he’s actually regretted doing and that while he loves the character, he admits that the movie was “f**ked up.” He also stated that the disappointment of Daredevil may be why he was motivated to star in Batman. While he was met with some skepticism, he states that if he thought Batman would be as bad as Daredevil, he would have “picketed himself.” Maybe superhero movies are just not a good idea for Affleck.
