Actors who hate their own movies

Making a movie is a complex process and making a good one requires a lot of hard work, great script, good music, excellent directing and brilliant performance. Unfortunately, not all the films are good and sometimes even the actors can’t help but frown at certain movies they were in. In fact, some stars even hate the movies that were awarded and generally considered good. Check out the list of actors who openly hate their own movies. Some of them might surprise you.

Sylvester StalloneStop! Or My Mom Will Shoot








Despite co-starring with the delightful Estelle Getty, Stallone is aware just how bad the film was: “I made some truly awful movies. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot was the worst. 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.”

George ClooneyBatman & Robin








Sure, Batman & Robin made money. But by every other imaginable measure, the film was a complete failure, and a nightmare to the vast majority of the Batman most fervent fanatics. Star George Clooney recognized what a stinker he helped create and once plainly stated, “I think we might have killed the franchise.”

Alec Guinness, Star Wars








The fame Guinness won for the role as the wise old Jedi master took him somewhat by surprise and, ultimately, annoyed him. In his autobiography, Alec recalls a time he encountered an autograph-seeking fan who boasted to him about having watched Star Wars more than 100 times. In response, Guinness agreed to provide the boy an autograph under the condition that he promise never to watch the film again. During production, Guinness is reported to have said the following: “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.”

Kate Winslet, Titanic








Titanic won 11 Oscars, including the one for Best Picture and it had huge commercial success. But, despite all that, Kate Winslet just can’t stand this movie. Firstly, she hates her own performance, which the actress has cited as cringe-inducing. She has big issues with her American accent, namely, and the way in which she delivers her lines. “”Every single scene, I’m like ‘Really, really? You did it like that? Oh my God’,” she said. Winslet also insulted the movie’s iconic theme song, “My Heart Will Go On,” which she claims makes her feel like throwing up.

David CrossAlvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked








When actors have a movie out, it’s customary that they publicize the film by saying nice things about it. When it came to describing his new film Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, David Cross called the film a “big commercial for Carnival Cruise Lines” and told people not to go see it.

Christopher PlummerThe Sound of Music








The Sound of Music is considered a classic and has delighted many generations of fans. But the film’s own lead actor, Christopher Plummer, doesn’t feel that way. He even declined to participate in a 2005 film reunion and, according to one acquaintance, has referred to the film as The Sound of Mucus.

Katherine HeiglKnocked Up








Judd Apatow’s unplanned pregnancy comedy was a huge hit and helped cement her status as a bankable film actress. After the film’s release, however, Heigl didn’t have all good things to say. In fact, what she specifically said about it was that the film was “a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys.”
