George Clooney – Batman and Robin:“I am the least qualified person to comment on anyone playing the role of Batman since I so terribly destroyed the part.”
Matt Damon – The Bourne Ultimatum: Damon screwed screenwriter Tony Gilroy in the press, saying its script was “unreadable” and “embarrassing.”
Sam Worthington – Clash Of The Titans: “I think… we kind of let down some people. I think I can act fucking better, to be honest,” said Sam after this blockbuster bombed at the box office.
Jessica Alba – Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer: Alba claims director Tim Story asked her “Can you be prettier when you cry? Cry pretty, Jessica” on set of this Marvel flick. “He was like, don’t do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.” The experience made her want to quit acting. “I just said, fuck it. I don’t care about this business anymore.”
Daniel Radcliffe – Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince: “I’m just not very good in it. I hate it… My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across.”
Lindsey Lohan – I Know Who Killed Me: “I seriously watched I know who killed me twice last night. Two times too many!”
Jim Carrey – Kick Ass 2: Jim disowned this recent blood-splattered comic book sequel shortly before its release in light of the tragic killings in Sandy Hook, where 20 students were shot dead by a gunman. “My apologies to others involved with the film,” Carrey told the press “…I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”
Katherine Heigl – Knocked Up: Judd Apatow’s pregnancy comedy was “a little sexist,” according to its lead actress. “It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days. I’m playing such a bitch. Why is she being such a killjoy?”
Colin Farrell – Miami Vice: His months spent wearing designer Italian apparel and smooching Gong Li in a variety of tropical locations was doubtlessly a enjoyable process for Farrell, but the Irish hell-raiser wasn’t so sure about the final outcome, dubbing this Michael Mann thriller “slow and hard to relate to.” Ouch.
Arnold Schwarzenegger – Red Sonja: “It’s the worst film I have ever made,” the Terminator reflected on this sword-and-sandals flop. “Now, when my kids get out of line, they’re sent to their room and forced to watch Red Sonja ten times.”
Alec Guinness – Star Wars: The classic example of an actor hating their own film is the brilliantly ill-natured disdain British thesp Alec Guinness had for Star Wars – which the Shakespearian actor would often refer to as “that silly space film”. Guinness, who played space monk Obi Wan Kenobi in the 1977 original, dismissed the film as ‘fairytale rubbish’ and its dialogue as “mumbo jumbo.”
Bob Hoskins – Super Mario Brothers: Our beloved Bob once told the Guardian that the film adaption of the iconic video game was the “worst job I’ve ever done.” The bizarre movie tie-in, set in an alternate universe where New York is a perma-nocturnal dystopia, shared little in common with the actual video game, and is routinely slammed as one of the shittest films ever.
Mark Wahlberg – The Happening: “It was a bad movie that I did,” said Mark. “… fucking trees, man.”
Kate Winslet – Titanic: “Every single scene, I’m like, really? You did it like that? Oh my God… Even my American accent, I can’t listen to it. It’s awful.”
Shia Le Beouf – Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen: “There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone. … It’s just a bunch of fighting robots.”
Robert Pattison – Twilight: “The more I read the script, the more I hated this guy, so that’s how I played him, as a manic-depressive who hates himself. Plus, he’s a 108 year-old virgin so he’s obviously got some issues there.”
