Creative people aren’t always pleased with the results of their work.
Actors are no different.
Here is a list of 4 actors who hated their own films (via Mental Floss):
1. Alec Guinness, Star Wars. “Apart from the money, I regret having embarked on the film. I like them well enough, but it’s not an acting job, the dialogue – which is lamentable – keeps being changed and only slightly improved, and I find myself old and out of touch with the young.”
2. George Clooney, Batman & Robin. Regarding this film, Clooney is quoted as saying,“I think we might have killed the franchise.” Obviously not. But he did have a point.
3. John Cusack, Better Off Dead. John Cusack told the film’s director Steve Holland that it was “the worst thing I have ever seen” and he would “never trust you as a director again.” Harsh words.
4. Christopher Plummer, The Sound of Music. He declined to participate in a 2005 film reunion and is said to have referred to the film as The Sound of Mucus. Ouch.
