All that glitters in Hollywood isn’t gold. There are actors and actresses who, no matter how successful, have been part of the box office failures, movies that didn’t do either because of their story, their low budget, or simply because they didn’t like the casting chosen. These films that will forever remain on the blacklist of the most strict moviegoers and that even their own protagonists regret having participated in. This is the case of Jennifer Lawrence who recently confessed that passengers -the story that takes place in space and stars Chris Patt- was the worst film he had made so far.
From George Clooney to Jessica Alba, we tell you here the case of five other stars who regret having worked on a project.
This franchise based on the Marvel comics had three releases but, for some reason, never achieved massive success. In 2005, Fox premiered the supergroup’s second adaptation, a production in which Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Julian McMahon and Chris Evans took part. To the hatred of the critics was added the embarrassment of the actors themselves, who more than once regretted having been part of this opus and its sequel in 2007. The most repentant is Alba, who had several clashes with director Tim Story, whom he accused of on-set abuse.
“I remember when I was dying Silver Surfer and the director said, ‘It feels too real. It seems too painful. Can you be more beautiful when you cry?“said the actress in an interview with Today. For his part, the filmmaker did not deny the accusation and assured that he had to put digital tears in post-production because “he did not cried nicely”. These crossings caused the third installment to fail and Fantastic Four be a bad memory for the actress.
Yes OK Arnold Schwarzenegger He starred in a lot of films which were box office failures, the only one he regrets is red warriora project which was filmed in 1985 and which told the fight of a warrior and a woman named Red Sonja against an evil princess and the powers of an evil talisman.
Such was his anger and disagreement with the film’s production and script that the actor was only on set for four weeks, leaving much earlier than expected. “It’s the worst movie of my life. When my kids misbehave, I send them to their room and make them watch ten times. I haven’t had any problems with them for a long time“, joked the star of terminator In an interview.
After Earth It was a 2013 apocalyptic movie that Will Smith starred alongside his son Jaden Smith. The actor not only starred in it, but also produced it, so the failure at the US box office was an even bigger blow for him. According to what he confessed, this experience was “emotionally devastating”. So much so that it led him to change his philosophy in the face of a new project.
“I had a huge revelation and experience with the failure of After Earth, for me, it was emotionally devastating. I’m destroying the box office, I’m number one! And it was very difficult emotionally. I had to take a step back, I let myself be defined by what others thought of my films.“, commented Smith in the promotion of his next film Focus: The masters of the scam.
If we think of Sylvester Stallone his character as Rambo or Rocky comes to mind, but the truth is that the actor who started working in the 70s has a long list of films under his belt. And of course, not all have been as successful as the franchises that propelled it to fame. Such is the case of For! Where my mother shoots, action-comedy movie where the overbearing mother of a tough police sergeant comes to visit and begins to interfere in his life and career. Despite the fact that the plot seems funny, the protagonist admitted that he was among the worst roles he played with that of Great speed Yes D-Tox, who are also on your list of regrets.
“It’s probably one of the worst movies in the entire solar system, including alien productions we haven’t seen yet.Stallone admitted in an interview. After assuring that “there is no greater torture than seeing it,” the action movie reference warned that just by watching the first 15 minutes, even the devil himself would all confess his sins. Reviews were so poor that the film won three Razzie awards for Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actress (for Estelle Getty), and Worst Screenplay.
There are several celebrities who brought the Night Knight to life, however, George Clooney does not remember this experience in the best way. In a recent interview with The Guardian, the actor confessed what he would do differently if he could live his life again and his response was straightforward: “Now the obvious answer to your question would be batman and robin“, said without hesitation the idol of Hollywood.
Not only did the film turn out to be a worldwide failure, but the protagonist himself was also unhappy with his performance. “Oh, it was really bad and I was very, very bad at it,” he confessed, apologizing to the audience. This film – which he starred with Chris O’Donnell (Robin) in 1997 – is among the worst in history. Even Clooney made a mea culpa about it: “I think we could have killed the franchise”, he launched while warning that it was “a waste of money”.
