Actors Who Hated Movies They Starred In

Alba accused male stars of "Good Luck Chuck" of turning the sets into porno shoots, tricking female stars to strip for sex scenes.

She fled the studio every night to escape Dane Cook's behaviour and other male stars, who would end each day with filming two sex scenes that never make to film.

She quoted: "It's porn. There were these actresses who got conned into being completely naked. Some were strippers, probably. But every day when I was done, I ran away. I was like, 'Bye.' As long as they didn't disrespect me, I could give a rat's butt."

In an interview in 2006 on Inside the Actors Studio, he felt the third film was "atrocious" and such a disgrace that "the character was kind of banished for a while [from Hollywood]." He said he felt the third film did not reveal enough of the "edginess" of Axel that was present in the first two films.

During an interview with Rolling Stone, Eddie Murphy gave a reason Vampire in Brooklyn was a failure. "The only way I was able to do Nutty Professor and to get out of my Paramount deal, I had to do Vampire in Brooklyn. But you know what ruined that movie? The wig. I walked out in that long-haired wig and people said, 'Oh, get the f--k out of here! What the hell is this?'"

Both Wesley Snipes and Kris Kristofferson, who at the time had become good friends after working on the two previous Blade installments, were reportedly unhappy with this movie and with David S. Goyer's script decisions. They felt that too many new characters were added to the universe, and that Blade did not need any sidekicks besides Whistler.

In 2005, Snipes sued New Line Cinema and Goyer, claiming that the studio did not pay his full salary, that he was intentionally cut out of casting decisions and filmmaking process, despite being one of the producers, and that his character's screen time was reduced in favor of co-stars Ryan Reynolds and Jessica Biel.

Snipes contends that Goyer, his fellow producers, and New Line kept him out of the project's decision process, which ended up harming the film's performance (it made just $52 million, compared to the previous installments that had made $70 million and $82 million respectively). He says that a portion of his salary - $3.6 million - was withheld as punishment.

There was much on set drama between Wesley Snipes and director David S. Goyer in regards to certain decisions made with the film. This is evident in the making of featurettes as Wesley Snipes has little to no participation.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, David Cross has spoken critically of the film, calling it "the most unpleasant experience I've ever had [during production]."

While Cross noted that it wasn’t the actors or directors that made it that way, he added “a couple of people” made it a “really awful, unpleasant experience.” Cross doesn’t have the same attitude about his current IFC series The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret — “…like a paid vacation" — or the upcoming return of Arrested Development: “[The entire cast is] verbally committed. No one wants to be the a–hole who ruins it for everyone else. But no one doesn’t want to do it, everyone’s excited.”

Thirteen years after the release of Judge Dredd, Sylvester Stallone discussed his feelings about the movie in an issue of Uncut magazine in 2008:

"I loved that property when I read it, because it took a genre that I love, what you could term the 'action morality film' and made it a bit more sophisticated. It had political overtones. It showed how if we don't curb the way we run our judicial system, the police may end up running our lives. It dealt with archaic governments; it dealt with cloning and all kinds of things that could happen in the future. It was also bigger than any film I've done in its physical stature and the way it was designed. All the people were dwarfed by the system and the architecture; it shows how insignificant human beings could be in the future. There's a lot of action in the movie and some great acting, too. It just wasn't balls to the wall. But I do look back on Judge Dredd as a real missed opportunity. It seemed that lots of fans had a problem with Dredd removing his helmet, because he never does in the comic books. But for me it is more about wasting such great potential there was in that idea; just think of all the opportunities there were to do interesting stuff with the Cursed Earth scenes. It didn't live up to what it could have been. It probably should have been much more comic, really humorous, and fun. What I learned out of that experience was that we shouldn't have tried to make it Hamlet; it's more Hamlet and Eggs..."

In his memoir, "With Nails," Richard E. Grant diarises the production of the film in detail, noting the ad-hoc nature of the production, extensive rewriting and replotting during the actual filming.

In a radio interview, when the host mentioned liking it, Grant replied: "It was a steaming pile of donkey droppings and you are an idiot."

Christian Bale has acknowledged that while it was not a commercial success, its fanbase is surprisingly large, saying: “You say something bad about Newsies and you have an awful lot of people to answer to.”

Adam Sandler to this day disowned it, even removed it from his official website.

When asked in an interview about whether the film's negative critical reaction had damaged Kennedy's morale in wanting do another project like this, Kennedy replied to the interviewer:

"Yes. You got me right after a batch of bad interviews so I’m going to be honest with you about this. It does because I’m just being killed, absolutely killed...But honestly, doing this movie is an interesting experience because I just came off my show and “Malibu’s Most Wanted” where I had a good amount of control. And then in this movie I didn’t have any control. I just can’t do that. I have to have my voice in there. If I can’t, I’m just going to be like I’m doing someone else’s thing. I have to have some of my voice because I have my own experiences that I lived through. All I can do is just try to make things independently. That’s the only way you can do it. The only way you can do that is if you’re a huge, huge, huge star. I’m not there yet. I’m just like a working actor."

Bob Hoskins has spoken critically of Super Mario Bros., saying that it was "the worst thing I ever did" and that "the whole experience was a nightmare" in a 2007 interview with The Guardian.

Dennis Hopper was also disparaging of the production, "It was a nightmare, very honestly, that movie. It was a husband-and-wife directing team who were both control freaks and wouldn't talk before they made decisions. Anyway, I was supposed to go down there for five weeks, and I was there for 17. It was so over budget."

John Leguizamo also admitted in 2007 that he too disliked his role as Luigi in the film, and expressed dissatisfaction with the film's direction

Academy-award winner Seasn Connery had arguments on set of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen with director Stephen Norrington. In an interview of Britain's Daily Express he stated: "There have been difference of opinion on almost everything. Professional differences, personal differences, you name it. But my philosophhy has beeno shoot the movie and talk right and wrong afterwards. I just want to complete the picture."

A co-star who remained anonymous, said: "They both have really strong personalities. Sean has really strong feelings on how he wants things to be done. He wants to get the shoot done Stephen has not been around much long. Connery was not pleased with how this is going. He's not used to be kept waiting on set."

After all the disputes, Sean Connery retired from acting.

At a 2010 Dragon Con panel, Star Trek co-star Leonard Nimoy asked "Seriously, was the movie interesting? Was it a good movie?" Shatner answered "No."

On Late Night with David Letterman on November 17th 1982, Andy Kaufman quoted: "When I made that movie Heartbeeps and it got terrible reviews, and I'm rightfully so. It was a terrible movie. I'm embarrassed that I was in it and I just wanted to say about that, is that I did not write it, direct it, produced it; I had nothing to do with it. I was hired to act in it and cause my name was up there, people think it's "Oh, my movie." I just wanted to say to any of my fans, if they're out there, that err... I like to personally apologize to each and every one of you for being in that movie."

Ice Cube stated that Ghosts of Mars is the worst film he starred in.

On MTV Movies Blog, Mark Wahlberg explained why the remake of the Planet of the Apes failed. Wahlberg attributes the failure of his "Apes" film to reboot the franchise to the studio's desire to crank out the movie before it was ready.

"They didn't have the script right. They had a release date before he had shot a foot of film. They were pushing him and pushing him in the wrong direction. You have got to let Tim do his thing."

Actor Michael Madsen called BloodRayne "an abomination... a horrifying and preposterous movie."

Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis didn't think highly of the film. In an IGN.com interview, she had the following to say about Virus: "That would be the all time piece of shit...It's just dreadful... That's the only good reason to be in bad movies. Then when your friends have [bad] movies you can say 'Ahhhh, I've got the best one.' I'm bringing Virus."

Despite being a fan of the cartoon, Channing Tatum wanted to play Snake Eyes, but got the role of the lead. He further commented that the script's awful.

James Franco would later poke fun at the film's poor reception during his Comedy Central Roast, saying “I agreed to do this roast because I wanted to do something I’ve never done before — something that has zero artistic value, something nobody will remember three months from now, something that’s offensive, homophobic, and stars horrifically untalented people and something that’s only a big deal to a handful of teenage stoners on Twitter. You might say, ‘James, didn’t you just describe Your Highness?' I wouldn’t know, I didn’t see Your Highness.” On his first-ever interview on The Howard Stern Show to promote the film Spring Breakers, Franco was surprised to hear Stern compliment Your Highness, asking incredulously, "you liked that?" He attributed the film's lackluster performance to its "tricky" blend of lowbrow humor and medieval swords and sorcerers, a combination that hadn't worked well since Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

Ciaran Hinds was reportedly unhappy with the final cut of the film, which trimmed down the backstory and characterization of Steppenwolf.
