Regret always comes later. When it happens, we will curse ourselves for making wrong decisions or acting stupid.
Including those experienced by the actors on this list. They regret or feel ashamed because they have played a character in the film.
Jaka has collected a lot of famous actors that you must know. So, which actors regret their roles in movies?
Fortunately, the careers of the actors below did not fall because of roles in films that they considered disgraceful. In fact, there are those whose careers actually skyrocket and laugh at stupid decisions in the past.
Reported from various sources, here is the list of actors!
1. George Clooney (Batman & Robin)
The movie Batman & Robin which was released in 1997 is often regarded as one of the worst superhero films of all time.
Bruce Wayne and Batman actor, George Clooney, even apologized profusely for how bad the film was.
Clooney honestly said that the film really killed the character of Batman. In fact, he even contacted Adam West, the actor in the 1966 Batman film.
Initially, Clooney took the role because it was considered able to increase his career. Unfortunately, the execution of this film is very bad.
Fortunately, Christopher Nolan managed to save the superhero thanks to his brilliant trilogy. Clooney's career was safe until he won the Academy Awards.
2. Zac Efron (High School Musical)
Are you a fan of the character Troy Bolton, played by Zac Efron in the musical drama High School Musical?
Surprisingly, it turns out that Efron really doesn't like the character he plays. He considers the character as an annoying child.
Even if he could, Efron wants to go back in time and kick himself ass playing Bolton.
3. Kate Winslet (Titanic)
If you were asked to name one of the most romantic films of all time, you would definitely mention the legendary Titanic.
We are fascinated between the romantic story between Jack (Leonardo Di Caprio) and the beautiful Rose (Kate Winslet). Well, it turns out that Winslet has some regrets about the Titanic!
More specifically, Winslet deeply regretted her nude scene when she asked Jack to paint her. He was worried that the scene would haunt him all the time.
Winslet also said she couldn't bear to watch Titanic because she heard herself accented with America, which she thought was terrible.
4. Megan Fox (Transformers)
Megan Fox's dislike of her role in the Transformers franchise stems from a dispute with the director, Michael Bay.
After playing in two Transformers films, Fox decided to leave. Fox said that Bay seemed to want to be Hitler while filming.
Fox also felt the film didn't give him a challenge and didn't show his acting skills.
Maybe he realized that the film was not meant to show his acting talent, but to highlight his sexy appearance.
5. Robert Pattinson (Twilight)
As one of the box office films inspired by best-selling novels, Twilight has many fans.
One reason is the presence of Robert Pattinson who plays a handsome vampire named Edward Cullen.
As the main character, Pattinson is actually very vocal in throwing criticism. He sees the Twilight film as having a plot hole and a lack of creativity.
He also admitted that the more he read the script, the more he hated Edward Cullen's character.
Furthermore, Pattinson was disturbed because the film turned him into an instant celebrity to describe the screams of fans like a voice heard at the gates of hell.
Even so, Pattinson should not feel discouraged because his career is not over yet. Moreover, he will play the latest version of the Batman character.
6. Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter)
Surprisingly, Daniel Radcliffe who played Harry Potter also did not like the role that made his name.
It's not that he hates the Harry Potter character, he just hates how young he was when he took on the role. He also regretted how lacking his acting was at that time.
Radcliffe has also stated that his acting in the sixth Harry Potter film, Half-Blood Prince, was terrible and could not bear to watch it.
He also closed the possibility of returning to play the character if Harry Potter would have a sequel.
7. Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern & X-Men Origins: Wolverine)
We all know that Ryan Reynolds didn't like his role as Green Lantern, another one of the worst superhero movies.
In fact, in Deadpool 2 there is a scene where he goes to the past to kill himself who wants to sign the film contract.
Besides the film, it turns out that Reynolds didn't like his role in Deadpool either! It's not Deadpool that we love, but Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
According to him, it was a frustrating experience. Throughout filming, Reynolds felt that the Deadpool in the film was the wrong version.

The regrets made by the names above do not necessarily make them slump. Instead, it motivates them to work even better.
