Actors And Actresses Who Regretted Taking On A Role
There can be many regrets in life, and for the most part, actors and actresses are no different when it comes to their jobs. There are multiple stars who have spoken up about a role that they now view negatively, as they did not end up enjoying the process or the result, or they simply regret ever having taken on the role of a character. Read on to find out who they are and what roles!
The actress spoke to Entertainment Weekly regarding the first two films of the ‘Transformers’ franchise, saying that “people are well aware that this is not a movie about acting”. She took aim at the director Michael Bay as well, saying, “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is, so he’s a nightmare to work for.”
‘The Wire’ is something that made the actor more well-known than before, despite this, he has some regrets as he said, “We’re all idolising Stringer Bell, but who are we really idolising? Are we idolising a smart drug dealer or a dumb narcotics dealer? What are we saying here? Is it ok to pump a community full of heroin but because you’re smart at it, that makes you cool? That was a problem for me.”
The actress revealed that she actually felt “embarrassed” playing Sam Puckett on ‘iCarly’. The show ran from when she was 13 to 21, and “by 15, I was already embarrassed”.
Halle Berry thought that the story of ‘Catwoman’ “didn’t feel quite right”. She said, “I remember having that argument: ‘Why can’t Catwoman save the world like Batman and Superman do? Why is she just saving women from a face cream that cracks their face off?’ But I was just the actor for hire. I wasn’t the director. I had very little say over that.”
The star who played Troy Bolton told Men’s Journal that being a Disney star was not the life he imagined for himself. He said, “I was like 17. And I said, ‘Guys, you know this is not at all what I want to do?’ And they were like, ‘Really?’”
The actor revealed that he would “mindlessly hate” ‘Twilight’ if he had not starred in the franchise as the character Edward Cullen. He said, “The more I read the script, the more I hated this guy.”
