Actors Who've Criticized Their Own Films

Updated September 15, 2020 368.7k views27 items

Opinions are like elbows, everybody has one, but no one knows what they’re for. Sometimes our opinions can ruin something another person loves. Case in point, when an actor comes out and says that he or she REALLY HATED a film that fans REALLY LOVED it can throw us into an existential quandary that lasts for days. So steel your nerves before reading this list of actors who hate their own films. It's definitely going to bum you out to learn that some of these actors hate their past roles, but don't worry. There's also a movie Ben Affleck hated that you probably do too!

On this list we have auteurs tearing apart some of their seminal work, aging actors dismissing fan favorites as “absolute rubbish,” and a few folks that are just calling it like it is (*ahem* Catwoman). If one of the movies on this list happens to be your favorite, don’t fret, you don’t have to have your Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked tattoo removed, just maybe don’t show it to David Cross... he’s kind of touchy about the subject.

Of course, some actors just hate to watch themselves in any film, no matter its quality. Meanwhile, some film stars and Hollywood celebrities are definitely regretting being talked into an awful role. These are the actors who came out and said so.
