It’s usually a proud moment for actors when their movies are released and hit the big screen. It is customary that they publicize the film and speak positively about their work. They look forward to attending the premier and seeing the end product of their effort and numerous sacrifices. While this is the usual reaction, there are actors not cut from the same cloth and aren’t fans of their movies. Here are five actors who hate their movies and wouldn’t mind them being erased from their resumes.
1. Jackie Chan Discourages Asian Fans from Watching His American Movies
Jackie Chan is a well known Hong Kong actor, filmmaker, stuntman and martial artist who is no stranger to American films. Chan is known for starring in the Rush Hour Trilogy alongside Chris Tucker. These movies were well liked by Chan’s fans; however, he wasn’t a fan. He confessed that he didn’t appreciate the action nor did he understand the humor. The movie was too Americanized for his liking. He did the sequel because he was offered millions. He openly told his Asian fans that they shouldn’t watch his American films.
2. Sylvester Stallone Thinks Watching This Movie Could Make a Guilty Man Confess
Sylvester Stallone is a highly successful actor who has starred in numerous movies and he has been quite honest about the films and his roles. He co-starred with Estelle Getty in the movie, “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot,” and by his own admission it was the absolute worst. He was aware that it was a total fail. He once said, “If you ever want someone to confess to murder, just make him or her sit through that film. They will confess to anything after 15 minutes.”
3. The Phantom Menace Turned Jake Lloyd Off to Acting
You may be wondering, “Who’s Jack Lloyd?” He was the child who played the role of Anakin Skywalker in the 1999 movie, “Star Wars Episode 1- The Phantom Menace.” Being a kid actor isn’t what it’s all cracked up to be. According to Lloyd, life after that movie was a living hell. He was teased by children at school; he had to undergo numerous interviews daily, and even as an adult, he is still being harassed by people who didn’t like his role. After dealing with all this, who can blame Lloyd for not liking this movie?
4. Joseph Gordon Levitt Thinks Negatively About His Character in 500 Days of Summer
Joseph Gordon Levitt played the role of Tom in the movie, “500 Days of Summer.” Fans describe him in the movie as a nice guy who was treated badly by his girlfriend. She did away with him and fans felt he didn’t deserve that. Levitt saw things quite differently as he didn’t like his character. He believed Tom was a bit of a jerk who set extremely high expectations for a lady out of selfishness and unfairness, then acted unfairly when she didn’t seem to meet them.
5. Alec Guinness Hated Star Wars
Alec Guinness was the first actor to play the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the “Star Wars: A New Hope.” Guinness’ disdain for Star Wars has essentially entered Hollywood folklore. Guinness apparently tossed away every piece of fan mail ever received to him because of how much he despised the movie and the popularity it brought him. He also reportedly refused to perform any advertising for the film. Why would someone with such negative feelings accept the role? The answer is simple- money.
