Top 10 Actors Who Hate Their Own Movies 10. Paul Bettany Has Never Watched Any Of
The Iron Man Movies Though Robert Downey Jr. is the star of the
Iron Man movies, Paul Bettany, who voiced his AI companion J.A.R.V.I.S., has received
praise for his on-screen chemistry with Downey. But according to Bettany, the work he did
for the three Iron Man films should be considered piracy (the old kind that involved stealing
money, not the modern “I’m too cheap to pay for this movie” kind). In his own words: “I turn up, read off of a piece of paper
for two hours and then they’d give me a huge bag of money.” While it seems like Bettany and Downey had
really good chemistry, they never actually read any of their lines in the same room.
In fact, Bettany never even got a full copy of the script. He instead came in at the last
possible moment during the production of each movie, recorded all of his lines and then
went home with the aforementioned bag of money. He’s never even watched any of the movies,
which he says makes him feel terrible when fans of the film tell him how much they loved
his parts and he has to look them in the eye and say “I’ve got no idea about Iron Man.”
Of course, if he feels so guilty we’re not sure why he doesn’t just sit down for six
hours and watch them, but maybe he’s really busy spending all that money. 9. Alec Guinness Hated Star Wars and Star
Wars Fans For our younger readers, Alec Guinness was
the guy who played Obi-Wan Kenobi before Ewan McGregor did, and he hated every second of
it. Guinness’ hatred of Star Wars has practically become Hollywood lore. According to some sources
the only reason he agreed to reprise his role was because George Lucas agreed to double
his pay, while according to others it was his idea to kill off Obi-Wan because he simply
couldn’t stand speaking his lines anymore. Guinness’ dislike of the movie and the fame
it brought him was so great that he absolutely refused to do any promotion for it and reportedly
threw away every piece of fan mail ever sent to him. According to Guinness, he also “shriveled”
at the mere mention of Star Wars and would be openly hostile to fans who approached him
in the street, to the point where he once made a child cry. But here’s the best part. Guinness was one
of the few people, along with George Lucas, who thought the movie would be a success.
He managed to secure a deal netting him 2% of the film’s gross box office for the rest
of his life, and his son is still cashing those checks. Guinness hated the very thing
that made him a guaranteed millionaire for life, which when you think about it just makes
him seem ungrateful. 8. Johnny Depp Hates Looking At His Own Face The list of movies Johnny Deep has been in
is so expansive that including it would double the length of this article, so we’ll just
save time and say that you’ve definitely seen one of his movies. If you haven’t,
you have and just didn’t realize it. Which means you have probably seen approximately
infinity percent more Johnny Depp movies than Johnny Depp has. As noted in this article,
Depp consciously avoids watching all of his own movies out of the fear that seeing them
would somehow “harm” him. There are even unconfirmed stories about Depp vandalizing
the posters to his own movies because he doesn’t like seeing his face staring back at him.
He must loathe mirrors. 7. Jackie Chan Tells Asian Fans Not To Watch
His American Movies Jackie Chan is like the working man’s Bruce
Lee. He’s starred in dozens of movies, but in the west he’s most recognized for the
Rush Hour trilogy, in which he features alongside human microphone Chris Tucker. Though Rush Hour and its sequels are arguably
Chan’s most beloved films, he himself doesn’t really like them. Stating that he doesn’t
understand the humor or like the action, which he described as “Americanized,” he even
went as far as suggesting that Asian fans of his movies should avoid his American ones
all together. Like The Forbidden Kingdom, which he openly admitted “isn’t that great”
on his own website before it came out. According to Chan, the only reason he even
bothered to make a sequel is because he was offered a ton of money for it, and when the
time came to film the third he only agreed to reprise his role because he felt he owed
it to his fans. Which at least makes Jackie Chan a much nicer guy than Alec Guinness. 6. Bela Lugosi Wasn’t a Fan of Dracula,
But Still Fought to be Him Before vampires were sparkly weirdos who played
baseball in forests and got in fistfights with werewolves, they were stone-cold bad-asses
who only cared about chomping necks and wooing ladies. And Bela Lugosi is the original vampire.
Throughout his career, Lugosi appeared on-screen as Dracula in dozens of movies and became
so synonymous with the role that he was able to trademark his characterization of the character.
People had to pay him if they wanted to dress up as the “real” Count Dracula, so if
you’ve ever put on a cape and tie Lugosi’s estate has probably been paid somewhere along
the line. That said, Lugosi was deeply frustrated by
how typecast the role of Dracula made him. You know, the same character he fought for
the rights to pretend to be in court. Lugosi came to resent the role and the movies it
involved, which didn’t stop him from being buried in his trademark cape at the bequest
of his family, who felt that it was definitely what he would have wanted. Either they were
very ignorant or they just wanted to screw him over one last time. 5. Danny Trejo Isn’t Even Aware of the Movies
He’s Been In Danny Trejo is so scary he can print his own
money by sending selfies to the US Mint, and as an actor he’s known primarily for two
things — dying like a champ in practically every movie he appears in, and his huge chest
tattoo. As we’ve discussed before, Trejo is a terrifying
man who’s led an incredible life involving prison, drugs and punching death row inmates
for fun. During his long and bloody acting career he’s appeared in more B-movies than
the second letter of the alphabet. In fact, Trejo has appeared in so many movies that
he literally can’t keep track of them. According to the Guardian, it’s not uncommon for Trejo
to watch a film and be surprised when he realizes he’s in it. Johnny Depp would kill to reach
the same level of indifference. 4. Tim Curry Never Used to Talk About Rocky
Horror Tim Curry is mostly known for his roles as
Pennywise the evil clown (It), Dr. Frank-N-Furter (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) and Nigel
Thornberry (The Wild Thornberrys). While he’s happy to talk about the first and last role,
his time as Dr Frank-N-Furter is something Curry seriously despises discussing. Out of fear the role would lead to type-casting,
Curry never openly discussed the movie in any interview (save for one promotional appearance
the week before the film was released) and he avoided going to fan conventions or appearing
in any media related to the franchise, even once famously retorting “not with me in
it” when asked if there would ever be a sequel. However in recent years, probably
due to the sheer amount of times people ask him about it, his attitude towards the role
has mellowed and he now fondly refers to it as a “rite of passage” for teens. That
said, he’s still very thankful when people don’t mention it in interviews. 3. Joseph Gordon Levitt Thinks His Character
In 500 Days of Summer Was An Ass If you’ve never seen 500 Days of Summer,
go ask the nearest girl or guy with a girlfriend for a copy (trust us, they’ll have a spare).
It’s a pretty good movie, but one thing that’s proven irksome for Joseph Gordon
Levitt, who played Tom, is that everyone he speaks to seems to think his character was
a nice guy who didn’t deserve to be dumped by Zoey Deschanel’s eponymous Summer. According to Levitt, he personally thinks
that Tom was a bit of an ass who selfishly and unfairly projected a fantasy onto a girl,
then reacted poorly when she didn’t seem to fit with his inflated expectations of her.
Though Levitt has mentioned that he likes the movie in past interviews, he’s said
that he’s troubled by the reactions to his character from fans, especially the ones who
seem to think that his character was some sort of romantic role model — an idea Levitt
was quick to quash, because he’s the real role model. 2. The Phantom Menace Turned Jake Lloyd Off
of Acting Yes, Star Wars is such a massive and apparently
hateful franchise that it gets two spots on this list. Before any of you fire up Google
to see who Jack Lloyd is, we’ll save you the eight seconds and remind you that he’s
he kid who played the young Anakin Skywalker. We’re not going to mince words here. After
the role Lloyd’s life became, in his own words, “a living hell.” He was teased
constantly by kids at school, was forced into doing upwards of 60 interviews a day, and
to this day faces harassment from fans who didn’t like the way he played the role.
Because screw him for not being able to act perfectly as a 10-year-old in a movie that
had far, far bigger problems than Lloyd’s perfectly fine performance. Llyod has only appeared in one movie since
(an obscure, semi-fictional film about hydroplane racing in 1970s small town Indiana, which
other than the racing is about as far from Star Wars as you can get) and has no intention
to get back in the game. Although he’s appeared at a few sci-fi conventions, he refuses to
watch the movie that made him famous because of all the bad memories it brings up. 1. Peter Dinklage Doesn’t Watch Game of
Thrones For A Very Silly Reason Peter Dinklage is mostly known for his portrayal
of Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, although he also featured as the villain in X-Men:
Days of Future Past, where half of the audience probably saw the guy as an evil, alternate
universe Tyrion. However, Dinklage has admitted that he doesn’t watch himself on-screen
in his most famous role. What possible reason could he have for not wishing to watch himself
in Game of Thrones? He doesn’t have HBO. Yes, Dinklage doesn’t watch his acclaimed
and beloved breakout role because he doesn’t want to pay 15 dollars a month for the channel
that plays it. Come on HBO, the guy’s helping you rake in buckets of money. Throw a free
subscription into his contact.

  1. I have to say. You only used the BEST pics of actors. They couldn't complain about your representation of them.
    OK. So some of these I guessed as much. I've never seen Dinkley in GOT as I've never seen GOT or want too! LOL

  2. 4:10 YOU'RE WRONG. Bela Lugosi was long dead for decades before HIS SON Bela Jr. was able to secure the rights of Universal monster stars images for their families. Karloff, Chaney, and Lugosi. Actors like Lugosi got screwed out of royalties back then….hell they never got any.

  3. Bela Lugosi didn't hate Dracula he loved the role and played it i believe more than 2000 times on the stage. Check your facts.

  4. Jacky Chen has never said that. The biggest box of these movies mentioned located in Taiwan, Asia. It’s impossible the film company allow statements hit Asia. And Asians do not fancy Jacky Chen that much.

  5. You're talking crap about Alec Guiness, he didn't hate the films at all, just the obsessive fans, and why exactly is he ungrateful for getting paid for doing his job?

  6. Yes, I have a copy of 500 Days of Summer, a movie I've never even heard about until now, lying around somewhere and my boyfriend definitely has a copy in his house as well.

  7. Random stupidly famous and overpaid Hollywood actor: I didn't want to do it at first, but then they offered me a bunch of money.

    How many time have we heard this before?

  8. All these people hate making movies but don't mind collecting the cash. Shut up don't make the movie and quit whining you don't have any money.

  9. They hated them all the way to the bank. Excuse me while I strike an artistic pose of revulsion and disdain while I cash these checks. If they really HATED them, why did they make them? Hmmm.

  10. Wait, he makes how much from GoT and yet he still thinks HBO should be FREE for him? Ah the entitlement attitude of some today. Considering his humble background I would of thought he has more sense. However, I don't know the real reason he doesn't subscribe to HBO, I personal am not a fan of that company. So if I'm off with the "entitlement attitude" my sincere apologies!

  11. Bela Lugosi only played Dracula twice. First for the 1931 Dracula and the second for Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Other Dracula films used different actors, and the other films with Lugosi as a vampire had him playing different vampires, not Dracula.

  12. Throwing away fanmail is really sad and disrespectful. I understand that, especially when receiving very much of it, you might just not have the time to read it all. But simply throwing it away just like that is actually unfair to the fans.

  13. All I got out of this video is that actors make to much money and most are snowflakes and or narcissists!

  14. Tim Curry doesn't hate Rocky Horror Picture Show. It is in fact Peter Hinwood, the guy who played Rocky, who hates Rocky Horror. Probably more than Alec Guinness hated Star Wars. He is embarrassed by the role and refuses to talk about. He stepped out of the public eye and keeps a super low profile. The only thing that is known about him is that he owns an antique shop. Apparently he even got mad at a customer and kicked them out of his shop for asking him about the movie.

  15. I agree with Jackie Chan. His American movies are pretty bad. However, to be fair, most of his movies were bad after he became a global superstar. (And I kind of like Forbidden Kingdom. )

  16. Im on board w Bea Arthur . Betty white always irritated me . Then furthered the distaste after G.G. with other tv appearances being vulgar and crude while still putting out that wide eyed , Im so innocent act . Yuck !!

  17. 4:07 Lugosi appeared as Dracula in TWO movies: the original Dracula, and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Look it up, people.

  18. Alec Guinness didn't hate the Star Wars movies. He was reluctant to play in the movie because he felt he was being cheapened in his twilight film years by doing cheap budgeted Sci-Fi and fantasy films. His last greatest note in the film world before Star Wars was in 1974-5's Scrooge, as Jacob Marley. For some reason that film was not well received or well liked, but has gained a cult following as being one of the best Christmas Carol's ever, and Alec Guinness's interpretation of Marley is probably the most innovative and enjoyable, yet. So you can see how he was JADED about the film world, until he actually began filming Star Wars: A New Hope. He approached Lucas and delightfully stated that it was a morality play. From then on, I can't recall anytime where he belittled or got down on the Star Wars films for becoming an international success.

  19. I also find it funny how Star Wars is being blamed for Jake Lloyd's bad memories. Seems to me that it's clearly stated in the video that it is more due to the @$$hole fans who have hatefully given him crap for being a kid who couldn't act as well as Haley Joel Osment. One more reason to despise my fellow Star Wars fans.

  20. This is concerning. You have 1.4 million subs and you are NOT accurate with 90% of what you say on here. Please folks research for yourself.

  21. Wow, who'da thought. I really don't like looking at Johnny Depp's face either!
    I guess maybe that's what the Mirror Saw… before it was given its Last Rights. 😀 And I can absolutely guarantee nobody here will get that one.

  22. The reason Guinness hated Star Wars is because he will forever be remembered for a lesser role that doesn’t compare with his storied career. Imagine if Robert Pattinson or whatever his name is became a Brando-level actor and was only remembered for being a sparkly vampire. You’d hate it too, especially if it came at the end of your career.

  23. Yo I'm a security gaurd and my wife is on SSI disability and we've got HBO how the hell does Peter dinklage not have hbo that's a cheap basterd a lanister pays his debts but Peter dinklage wants no debt

  24. ok. I have to stop watching the video. this dude's pronunciation is just going to make me kill a puppy. Owbi Wan (like the adjective, not wahn) kenowbi and then he says its practically part of hollywood law (should have been lore)

  25. Star Wars didn't make Alec Guinness a millionaire. He was a millionaire a couple of decades before, having been a film star for 43 years before Star Wars.

  26. Cher initially hated "Moonstruck".
    Co star Olympia Dukakis says when the movie wrapped she recalls Cher catching her attention to give her a 'gag me' sign. Cher didn't think it would be a hit and thought the dialogue was silly.
    Cher has also said she didn't like Burlesque, one of the few movies she's appeared in at all in the last decade.

  27. Not really. He had to tutor George Lucas in everything about this film. Alec was basically a shadow director for this movie as well. Without him the movie would be something like Star Wars 6 or even the sequel trilogy.

  28. "Lugosi appeared on screen as Dracula in dozens of movies."

    Two. Two movies. 'Dracula' and 'Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein'.

    Who the hell fact checks this crap?

  29. Do any of the actors like Star Wars… Harrison Ford hates it… Alec hates it… so 2 of the most beloved star wars characters hated it…

  30. I guess I'm in for a huge bashing but I have never seen a star wars movie either, always fallen asleep no matter how hard I tried.

  31. I don't believe everything they say about Alec Guiness hating Star Wars. You can watch interviews with him where he details his experience and its the opposite about what they state.

  32. $15 a month! You should live in the UK Dinklage. Minimum subs for SKY are £23 and we ain't wealthy actors!
