Regretting something from your past is a terrible feeling. The only thing that could be worse is if that mistake followed you around everywhere you went. These 15 stars have to deal with their biggest regret being on their resumes, their Wikipedia pages, and in $5 movie bins all around the world.
It’s an issue that even the best of the best have to face at some point or another throughout their careers; Bruce Willis has said that he would like to strike about a dozen of his past projects off his list of attributes, while Johnny Depp reportedly cannot stand to watch his own movies because he doesn’t like seeing his own acting.
Often this scorn comes from the embarrassment of a movie being poorly received, others times it is because the actor doesn’t feel like they did a good enough job in the film. In certain cases these actors have been nominated or have won awards for their performances, or the film was extremely successful at the box office and the award circuit, and yet the actor still passionately dislikes the film.
Whether they blame it on themselves or others, here are 15 actors who were very vocal about their hatred of their own movies.
15 George Clooney – Batman & Robin
14 Katherine Heigl – Knocked Up
13 Mark Wahlberg – The Happening
12 Sylvester Stallone – Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot
11 Daniel Radcliffe – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
10 Ben Affleck – Daredevil
9 Alec Baldwin – Rock of Ages
8 Jim Carrey – Kick-Ass 2
7 Halle Berry – Dark Tide
6 Matt Damon – The Bourne Ultimatum
5 Shia LaBeouf – Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
4 Kate Winslet – Titanic
3 Arnold Schwarzenegger – Red Sonja
2 James Franco – Your Highness
1 Sean Connery – James Bond
Sean Connery has been the star of several James Bond films. Some actors would consider that the role of a lifetime, and yet Connery has publicly said that he hates the franchise. “I have always hated that dammed James Bond. I’d like to kill him.” He’s been in a legal feud with the producers on the films, continually asking for more money, and refuses to make any public appearances that have anything to do with his famous 007 character. Some say the pressure of such an iconic role was too much for Connery, hence his distain, while others believe the actor is guilty of being greedy. It’s a pity that Connery has so much resentment towards the role that changed his life.
