Actors get to become someone else practically on demand, so that sometimes it can be difficult for viewers to determine the true identity of the actor in question. And their awesome professionalism never makes it look like they hated playing some of their characters!
Here are 11 actors who wish they had never played in certain movies.
1. Jackie Chan in Rush Hour – 1998
The actor was worried about his career. In fact, he confessed that he hated this film, because he thought the stunts were too simplistic and the plot was too “American.” The movie was very successful, which made him feel a little better about being in it.
2. Benoit Poelvoorde in Une histoire d'amour – 2013
According to the actor, the atmosphere on the set couldn’t have been any more unpleasant. This greatly reduced his interest in the film, so he didn’t even want to promote it when it was released.
3. Jessica Alba in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer – 2007
After this movie was released, Jessica Alba admitted that she was totally devastated by this film, which she thought was horrible. She seriously thought about ending her career after this role, which left her with very bad memories.
4. Edward Norton in The Incredible Hulk – 2008
The actor was completely unhappy with the final cut of this movie, so he wanted to boycott its release so the directors would edit the film!
5. Terence Stamp in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace – 1999
According to the actor, Georges Lucas was too concerned about special effects and didn’t pay much attention to the acting. That made it a very mediocre film for Terence Stamp.
6. Nicole Kidman in Australia – 2008
Despite promises made, the movie Australia wasn’t very popular with viewers. As soon as it was released, Nicole Kidman confessed that she didn’t like the script at all, which people noticed in her performance.
7. Charlize Theron in Reindeer Games – 2000
When it was released, the actress didn’t mince words, saying that it wasn’t a good movie. She did not go into detail, but obviously, it seems that the script posed a problem for her...
8. Robert Pattinson in the Twilight saga – 2008 to 2012
The actor didn’t hide his despair, even before the last movie was released. He clearly called these films “rubbish” and said that he was well aware that from now on he would only be seen as a vampire and not as a full-fledged actor.
9. Marion Cotillard in The Last Flight (Le Dernier Vol) – 2009

10. Jeremy Renner in The Avengers – 2012
Taking on the role of Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner admits that he was very disappointed with the script.

To put it simply, Mila Kunis announced that she was extremely ashamed to star in this film which she considers boring and complete crap.
