There's no doubt that Pattinson's most famous role is Edward Cullen in "Twilight," but the actor is clearly not a fan of the series. It's hard to nail down specifics on why. This quote sums up part of the problem fairly well, though: "He's a 108 year-old virgin, so he's obviously got some issues there."
"The Sound of Music" may be one of the most-beloved movies ever, but that sentiment is not shared by Plummer, who played Captain Von Trapp. The actor declines all film reunions, and reportedly referred to the film as "The Sound of Mucus."
Halle Berry was on the top of the world in the early 2000's, but she almost lost it all when she starred in 2004's "Catwoman." The terrible superhero film almost ruined her career. At the Razzie Awards that year, Berry accepted her award by thanking Warner Bros. for "casting [her] in this piece-of-sh**, god-awful movie."
Pfeiffer is a legendary actress, and "Grease" is a classic movie musical, so when the two came together for "Grease 2," people assumed it would be brilliant. Sadly, it wasn't and Pfeiffer hates to be reminded of the film. She looks back on it with hate, and calls it a bad dream that she wants erased from her memory.
Much like Halle Berry, Affleck was almost ruined by a terrible superhero movie in the early 2000's. His flop was "Daredevil," which featured the talented actor as a blind superhero. Affleck hasn't been shy about bashing the film, calling it a huge mistake and poorly made. Now, Affleck is set to play Batman in a new movie, so hopefully it won't be another super mistake.
If you had eyes in 1998, you saw "Titanic." But star Kate Winslet, who played Rose Dewitt Bukater, sort of wishes that you hadn't. She's sick of people drawing her like one of their French girls, after being famously depicted nude.
Matt Damon portrayed the titular Jason Bourne in "The Bourne Ultimatum." He's said that he hated this script so much that it was "unreadable". Apparently he still couldn't read by the time the script for "We Bought A Zoo" came to him.
Katherine Heigl found her role as Alison in "Knocked Up" to be extremely sexist. This is why she currently works semi-exclusively in romantic comedies. Anyone hoping to see Heigl reprise her role in more Judd Apatow movies should stop holding their breath.
Shia LeBeouf will largely be remembered as polarizing to audiences. And saying dumb things. To date he's slammed some of his biggest films, including: "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."
Carrie Fisher is a goddess to hordes of "Star Wars" fans across the globe, but it turns out that she hates being Princess Leia. Although she said that "George Lucas ruined [her] life" with his ridiculous costuming, she's recurring the famous role next year.
Most actors will look back on their big movie roles with fondness and pride, but that's not always the case. These stars are not fans of the movies that they starred in and they have no problem talking about it.
