Being a celebrity is just like being a normal person, except when you make a mistake or a misstep, everyone's watching. Most of us have a regret or two in life, but unlike celebrities, we usually don't have to relive those regrets on a daily basis.

These celebs let slip their biggest regrets in their careers (and lives in general). Though for many, they aren't exactly secret.

Kris Jenner regrets divorcing Robert Kardashian.

After splitting from her ex, Caitlyn Jenner in 2013, Kris said, "The one regret, if I had to do it over, would be divorcing Robert Kardashian. But then there wouldn't have been Kendall and Kylie, so that's the way I look at that."

Bella Hadid regrets getting a nose job.

Hadid got a nose job at a pretty young age (she was just 14 when she underwent her rhinoplasty surgery). She's since expressed her regret for that move, saying, "I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors."

Robert Pattinson regrets being in the 'Twilight' movies.

If you were ever a fan of the Twilight saga, you probably already know that Robert Pattinson famously hated the series with his whole being. Heck, if you were a Twilight anti, you probably also knew this.

Sophie Turner regrets not going to college.

Game of Thrones fans will probably remember that Turner, who played Sansa Stark on all eight seasons of the show, practically grew up on that set. As such, she didn't have a lot of time for school.

While she did love the acting experience, she did regret the fact that it took away from school.

In an interview, she said, "I wish I'd had the university experience. I wish I could have gone out and drunk a lot and thrown up in the middle of a club without it being photographed!"

Ryan Reynolds really regrets 'Green Lantern.'

Like Robert Pattinson, Ryan Reynolds hasn't been shy in his hatred for his leading role in 2011's Green Lantern. Though, he did meet his now-wife Blake Lively through that movie, so it can't be all bad.

Christina Applegate regrets not being a part of 'Legally Blonde.'

Before Reese Witherspoon got the role of Elle Woods, Christina Applegate was in talks for it. Though she ultimately turned it down for fears of being typecast, she admitted years later that she wish she'd accepted the role.

That said, she still loves her career as it is.

In discussing her career, Applegate said, "[I’ve] never really been highly successful. If you never make the A-list and stay at a nice respectable B, you can sustain it longer."

Katherine Heigl sort of regrets starring in 'Knocked Up.'

Heigl admitted that she found the film a little sexist: "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."

George Clooney regrets being Batman.

To this day, Batman & Robin is considered one of the lesser Batman movies (and that's putting it nicely). So, of course, Clooney himself would find it physically painful to go back and watch that performance.

Mariah Carey regrets making 'Glitter.'

That film was a flop after all. Reflecting on it, she said, "It was called the 'G' word, we couldn’t bring it up. In retrospect, I’m like, you know what, I learned something, and I’m grateful for that experience. But, it was a horrible couple of years, and then I had to get my momentum back for people to let it go."

Jennifer Aniston regrets her most iconic haircut.

Not everyone is iconic enough to have a hairstyle named after them. But while many women wanted to rock "the Rachel" on their own heads, Aniston hated it, calling it "the ugliest haircut I've ever seen."

Nick Lachey regrets having his own reality show.

Nick Lachey saying, "Obviously I'm Nick Lachey."

Before marrying Vanessa and having three kids, Nick Lachey was on a reality show with ex Jessica Simpson. He's since come to regret that move. He wouldn't want to star in another show like that now, especially not with young kids in the mix.

Halle Berry regrets acting in 'Catwoman.'

Catwoman is definitely... a movie that exists. To Berry's credit, though, she handled being a part of the strangely campy flick with style. She even gave a pretty hilarious acceptance speech when she won a Razzie for it.

Courtney Cox regrets getting work done on her face.

Cox got a lot of fillers done over the years, which she has since decided to remove. "There was a time when you go, ‘Oh, I'm changing. I'm looking older.' And I tried to chase that [youthfulness] for years," she said.

Miley Cyrus regrets everything about "Wrecking Ball."

Cyrus has stated that she regretted swinging around naked on a wrecking ball in the song's music video: "Once you do that… it’s forever. I’m never living that down. I will always be the naked girl on the wrecking ball."

Kate Winslet regrets being in 'Titanic.'

Though it may be one of her most iconic and career-defining roles some 25 years after its release, Winslet is pretty embarrassed by her own performance as Rose in Titanic.

She cites both her acting and American accent as things she hated.

"It sounds terribly self indulgent but actors do tend to be very self-critical," she said. "I have a hard time watching any of my performances, but watching Titanic I was just like ‘Oh God, I want to do that again.'"

Lamar Odom regrets how he treated Khloe Kardashian when they were together.

During the pair's 2009-2016 marriage, Odom cheated on Kardashian multiple times. He later admitted that he regrets that move, saying, "I wish I would have treated her the right way."

Viola Davis regrets acting in 'The Help.'

Davis admitted that The Help is in her list of movies she regrets acting in, saying, "I just felt that at the end of the day that it wasn’t the voices of the maids that were heard."
