Actors Who Really Didn't Enjoy Some Of Their Most Famous Roles

If actors are lucky, they take on many roles during their careers.

This ranges from the Oscar-worthy roles to the very, very bad ones. And then, there are the ones the actors despise most, despite it being one of their famous roles.

Here are 10+ of those. We never imagined some of these actors would feel that way...

Emilia Clarke - *Terminator Genisys*

While the actress enjoyed her time working with director Alan Taylor on Game of Thrones, it wasn't the same experience filming Terminator Genisys.

She told Vanity Fair that "no one had a good time."

Megan Fox - *Transformers*

The actress didn't enjoy being the eye candy on the Michael Bay film.

She told Entertainment Weekly that it's very obvious that the movie isn't about acting. She also later called out Bay for his "nightmare" actions.

Penn Badgley - *You*

While the role of Joe Goldberg reignited his career after Gossip Girl, Penn isn't a fan of people having a crush on his serial killer character. "“He’s a pretty reprehensible guy," he told Today.

Gwyneth Paltrow - *Shallow Hal*

If anyone knows that the film centered around fat-shaming didn't age well, it's Gwyneth.

She called it a "disaster" an interview with Netflix, adding that it was "disturbing" when people wouldn't make eye contact with her with the fat suit on.

Charlyne Yi - *The Disaster Artist*

On Instagram, she wrote that the producers tried to "bribe" her in staying on the film when she tried to leave because of Franco, who she called a "sexual predator."

Katherine Heigl - *Knocked Up*

In a 2007 interview with Vanity Fair, she didn't hold back. She slammed the movie, calling it "sexist." This ended up upsetting co-star Seth Rogen and director, Judd Apatow, putting them on bad terms.

Allison Williams - *Girls*

The actress disagrees with basically everything her character, Marnie, did on the show.

"Marnie would drive me crazy if we were friends in real life," Williams told BuzzFeed. In the end, she had to put her personal feelings aside to play the character.

Colin Farrell - *Miami Vice*

The actor didn't mince words when it came to his role of Crockett opposite Jamie Foxx in the 2006 film.

“I thought it was style over substance and I accept a good bit of the responsibility," he told Total Film.

Cher - *Burlesque*

"It could have been a much better film. It was always sad that it was not a good film," she told The Guardian.

She also took shots at the director, Steve Antin, calling him a "really terrible director."

Jim Carrey - *Kickass*

The Canadian actor didn't enjoy the film for a good reason — it was released less than a year following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. He ended up later tweeting his detain for it.

Adam Brody - *The O.C.*

Playing Seth Cohen was definitely Adam's most famous role — but don't tell him that.

"It gets boring, that's all," he told the Huffington Post about having to constantly talk about Seth. He compared it to Harrison Ford having to constantly talk about Star Wars.

Jason Bateman - *Horrible Bosses 2*

If you felt like the second film was garbage, Bateman feels you.

During an episode of Marc Maron‘s WTF podcast, he called the film "a paycheck for [the cast]" and said that it "was garbage as far as box office goes."

Sally Field - *The Amazing Spider-Man*

The actress didn't have a lot of nice things to say about the sequel.

She told Howard Stern, “It’s really hard to find a three-dimensional character in it, and you work it as much as you can, but you can’t put ten pounds of [expletive] in a five-pound bag

Zac Efron - *High School Musical*

Troy Bolton fans, cover your eyes! The actor revealed to Men's Health that he wants to kick his character's butt sometimes.

Maybe it was the flippy hair or that awkward basketball dancing scene?

George Clooney - *Batman & Robin*

The actor has actually apologized for his role as Batman in the film. “Let me just say that I’d actually thought I’d destroyed the franchise until somebody else brought it back years later and changed it."

Mark Wahlberg - *Boogie Nights*

The actor has so much disdain for the film that he literally prayed to God for forgiveness. “I just always hope that God is a movie fan and also forgiving because I’ve made some poor choices in my past," he told Chicago Inc.

Dev Patel - *The Last Airbender*

The highly-anticipated film didn't receive good reviews — including from Patel.

He said that playing the role of Prince Zuko felt like he "saw a stranger on the screen that I couldn't relate to."

Ben Affleck - *Daredevil*

While the actor clearly loves one thing from the early '00s — Jennifer Lopez — Daredevil is another story. He once told TimesTalk that he hates it "so much." That about sums his feelings up!

Blake Lively - *Gossip Girl*


As glamourous as playing Serena Van Der Woodsen was (did you see the outfits she got to wear?!) Lively told Allure that it was also "personally compromising" at times.

"I would not be proud to be the person who gave someone the cocaine that made them overdose and then shot someone and slept with someone else's boyfriend."
