Keep reading and find out who these celebs are!


1. Robert Pattinson, Twilight

It is no secret that Robert Pattinson hates Twilight and the character he played, Edward.

This might be the most hilarious quote: “He’s the most ridiculous person…the more I read the script, the more I hated this guy…Plus, he’s a 108 year-old virgin so he’s obviously got some issues there.”


2. Kate Winslet, Titanic

Although she never said she hated the film, Winslet confessed she was not too thrilled with her performance as rose.

During an interview for Telegraph, she said:  “Every single scene, I’m like ‘Really, really? You did it like that? Oh my God…Even my American accent, I can’t listen to it. It’s awful,”.

“Hopefully it’s so much better now. It sounds terribly self indulgent but actors do tend to be very self-critical. I have a hard time watching any of my performances, but watching Titanic I was just like, ‘Oh God, I want to do that again.’- she added.


3. Allison Williams, Girls

“Marnie would drive me crazy if we were friends in real life,” Williams told BuzzFeed. “But I have to put that out of my head in order to play her. Like, sleeping with Elijah (Andrew Rannells) is crazy, sleeping with Ray (Alex Karpovsky) is crazy, furiously hitting on Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) when he mentions his girlfriend in their first conversation is crazy; but I have to be on the couch with her and Elijah hoping they f***, I have to be in that apartment with Ray kinda wanting it to happen, and I have to support her quest for Desi.”

Actually, the thing Allison struggled with the most was Marnie’s decision to sleep with the artist Booth Jonathan. She said: “I was fighting that the whole time as Allison,”


4. Adam Brody, The O.C.

Well, he doesn’t really hate the character he played in the show, he just doesn’t want to talk about him now. During an interview with the Huffington post, he said he gets annoyed when he talks about it.

“It gets boring, that’s all. The only way it bothers me – it’s not that I’m not proud of it – it’s that I’ve exhausted the conversations about it, in my mind,” Brody said. “Forgive me for comparing myself in any way – and I’m not – but Harrison Ford, I understand why he would be crotchety talking about Star Wars.”


5. Blake Lively, Gossip Girl

“It’s a weird thing when people feel like they know you really well, and they don’t,” Lively said. “I would not be proud to be the person who gave someone the cocaine that made them overdose and then shot someone and slept with someone else’s boyfriend.”-said Blake Lively in an interview with Allure.

“People loved it, but it always felt a little personally compromising – you want to be putting a better message out there,” she said. “The lines become blurred… It doesn’t help when everybody is dating who they’re dating on the show, and you’re also saying to the costume designer, ‘Hey, can I take that home?'”


6. Megan Fox, Transformers

Fox is being pretty honest when she talks about this movie.

When she was asked if she’d star in the third part of the movie, Megan answered: “Sure. I mean, I can’t sh** on this movie because it did give me a career and open all these doors for me. But I don’t want to blow smoke up people’s ass. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting. And once you realize that, it becomes almost fun because you can be in the moment and go, ‘All right, I know that when he calls Action! I’m either going to be running or screaming, or both.'”


7. Colin Farrell, Miami Vice

“Miami Vice? I didn’t like it so much,”

“I thought it was style over substance and I accept a good bit of the responsibility.”-said Colin, clearly stating he wasn’t a huge fan of the film.


8. Justin Guarini, From Justin to Kelly

On a 2013 episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? Guarini called the 2003 film “abysmal,” although he did call the production an “unbelievable experience.”


9. Kelly Clarkson, From Justin to Kelly

Clearly, Clarkson wasn’t a fan of the movie either.

When she was asked if she had burned all the copies from the movie in an interview with Rolling stone, she said: “No, I think I would have to own it first. But that is something I will look into. I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, ‘My roommate and I used to watch it all the time! I’m totally going to show your daughter From Justin to Kelly.’ I’m like, ‘I will fire you.'”


10. Brad Pitt, The Devil’s Own

In a 1997 issue of Newsweek, Pitt stated the thriller/drama released the same year was “the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking, if you can even call it that, that I’ve ever seen.”


11.Penn Badgley, Gossip Girl

He didn’t say he hated his character on the show. However he did reference the show and its flaws: “Lol s*** we are *reclining* on New York City. I’m posted up like its a futon. Talk about an image of white privilege.”

What he said in an interview with Salon in 2013 was: “To be proud of something is a really nice feeling…and it’s a new feeling. It’s something that I wanna keep going with.” (Gossip Girl aired from 2007-2012.)


12. Cher, Burlesque

“It could have been a much better film. It was always sad that it was not a good film,” she told The Guardian in 2013.

“I remember [Antin] saying to me, I don’t care about what you say, I just want to shoot the dance numbers.”-she added.


12. Jim Carrey, Kick-Ass 2

“I did Kick-Ass a month before Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.”- tweeted Carrey about Kick-Ass 2, which was released less then a month after Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.


13. Katherine Heighl, Knocked Up

When she was asked about the movie during an interview with Vanity Fair, the actress said: “It was a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight. I had a hard time with it, on some days. I’m playing such a b***h; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women? 98 percent of the time it was an amazing experience, but it was hard for me to love the movie.”


14. Jennifer Garner, Elektra

She called the movie “awful,” according to her ex-boyfriend Michael Vartan. During an interview with Us Weekly, Vartan is quoted as saying, “I heard Elektra was awful. Jennifer called me and told me it was awful. “She had to do it because of Daredevil. It was in her contract.”


15. Shia LaBeouf, Indiana Jones

LaBeouf played Mutt in the 2008 film, Indiana Jones. He told the LA Times: “I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished,” “You get to monkey-swinging and things like that and you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven [Spielberg]. But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it. So that’s my fault. Simple.”


16. Jamie Foxx, Stealth

“Sometimes you do a movie and you have to go promote it, so on Stealth I was like, ‘Yeah, this is the greatest.’ And people would see me after seeing the movie and say, ‘I can’t believe you lied to me like that.’” – said Foxx during his promotion for the Kingdom, for which he didn’t have to lie and say it was a good movie.


17. Sarah Jessica Parker, Sex and the City 2

Let’s admit Sex and the City 2 wasn’t as good as the series was. Speaking at Vulture festival, Parker admitted that she “can see where we fell short. I understand, I actually get it. I will say, I also understand how much frickin’ money it made,” she added. “I feel like that is forgotten in the discussion.”


18. Jason Bateman, Horrible Bosses 2

“The second one was garbage, as far as box office goes,” said Bateman of the movie. “Who knows whether it was on the merits or when they released it, but it did not do any money.”


19. Channing Tatum, G.I.Joe: Rise of Cobra 

On Howard Stern’s radio show, Tatum decided to be brutally honest: “I’ll be honest. I f***ing hate that movie. I was pushed into doing it. The script wasn’t any good. And I didn’t want to do something that I – that I was a fan of since I was a kid and watched every morning growing up – and didn’t want to do something that was 1) bad, and 2) I just didn’t know if I wanted to be G.I. Joe.”


20. Shailene Woodley, The Secret Life of the American Teenager 

The actress played the character Amy for five years.

“Towards the end, morally, the things that we were preaching on that show weren’t aligned with my own integrity,” she said. “So that was a bit hard to show up to work every day knowing that we were going to project all of these themes to thousands, millions, of young adults across the country, when in fact they weren’t what I would like to be sending out.”


21. Charlize Teheron, Reindeer Games

When asked about the 2000 movie Theron just said: “That was a bad, bad, bad movie.”


21. Sally Field, The Amazing Spiderman

Explaining that she was not a fan of her character, Field told Howard Stern, “It’s really hard to find a three-dimensional character in it, and you work it as much as you can, but you can’t put ten pounds of s**t in a five-pound bag.”


22. James Franco, Your Highness

“Your Highness? That movie sucks,” Franco admitted during an interview with GQ. “You can’t get around that.”


23. Zac Efron, High School Musical

Although there isn’t a teenager that doesn’t love Troy Bolton, Efron certainly doesn’t. “I step back and look at myself and I still want to kick that guy’s ass sometimes,” Efron told Men’s Fitness. “He’s done some kind of cool things with some cool people – he did that one thing that was funny – but, I mean, he’s still just that f***ing kid from High School Musical.”


24. Shia LaBeouf, Transformers: The Age of the Fallen

LaBeouf said: “I wasn’t impressed with what we did…there were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone. It’s just a bunch of fighting robots.”


25. Mariah Carey, Glitter

Carey played herself in the film Glitter and said she was definitely not a fan of the movie. She told Andy Cohen it was her biggest regret. “It was a horrible couple of years and then I had to get my momentum back for people to let it go.”


26. Cara Delevigne, Paper Towns

When she was asked if she had anything in common with her character, Delevigne replied “No, I actually hate her”.


27. George Clooney, Batman & Robin

“Let me just say that I’d actually thought I’d destroyed the franchise until somebody else brought it back years later and changed it. I thought at the time that this was going to be a very good career move. It wasn’t.”- said Clooney about the film.


28. Mark Wahlberg, The Happening

Wahlberg starred in the 2008 film and admits, “I was such a huge fan of Amy Adams. We’d actually talked about another movie, and it was a bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet. I don’t want to tell you what movie. All right, The Happening. F*** it. F***ing trees, man.”


29. Daniel Craig, James Bond

Craig admits being tired of the series. When asked if he could imagine doing another Bond movie in 2015, Craig told Time Out, “Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”


30. Jennifer Lawrence, Mother!

Lawrence admits her first reaction to seeing the film wasn’t what everyone would expect.

Lawrence told Variety, “I was really shaken. My first reaction was that we took it too far,” said Lawrence. “But then after the images died down a little bit, the movie’s exactly what we’re supposed to be doing and what we need to be doing. We have a message and if we watered it down to make people comfortable then what’s the point? Why even make it?”


31. Jessica Alba, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

In 2010, Alba told Elle she almost quit acting after working on the superhero sequel because the director Tim Story said she wasn’t “crying pretty enough.”


32. Lindsay Lohan, I Know Who Killed Me

34. Christian Bale, Newsies

”Time healed those wounds. But it took a while,” Bale told Entertainment Weekly about the 1992 film.


35. Ben Affleck, Daredevil

36. Halle Berry, Catwoman

In 2005 the actress accepted an award on stage stating, “I want to thank Warner Bros. for casting me in this piece-of-sh**, god-awful movie.”


37. Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

In an interview with Playboy, the actor revealed he doesn’t like watching the 2009 film because, “I’m just not very good in it. I hate it…my acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across. My best film is the fifth one [Order of the Phoenix] because I can see a progression.”


38. Carrie Fisher, Star Wars

Fisher admitted to Today, “I wish I’d turned down Star Wars.” Strange, since the film was a huge success.


39. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Red Sonja

Schwarzenegger starred in the 1985 film revealing,”It’s the worst film I have ever made. When my kids get out of line, they’re sent to their rooms and forced to watch Red Sonja 10 times. I never had too much trouble with them.”


40. Ben Affleck, Gigli

When asked about the movie, Affleck revealed, “It could have been a bad movie no one cared about. Angelina Jolie had a bad movie that year and no one cared. But it was because I was dating Jennifer Lopez that made it a big f***ing deal. So not only was it just a bad movie, but ‘they dated each other.'”


41. Alec Baldwin, Rock of Ages

Baldwin told TheWrap the 2012 film was a “complete disaster” and that “a week in you go, ‘Oh God, what have I done?'”


42. Matt Damon, The Bourne Ultumatum

Damon admits hating the third film in the Bourne series. “I don’t blame Tony for taking a boatload of money and handing in what he handed in. It’s just that it was unreadable. This is a career ender…it’s terrible. It’s really embarrassing. He took his money and left.”


43. Bruce Willis, on multiple films

Even though we are not quite sure which movie he hates exactly, when the actor was asked if he regrets starring in any of his movies, he said:”about a dozen. I’d love to strike them off the list.” He also admitted he’s “bored of making action movies.”


44. Michelle Pfeiffer, Grease 2

Pfeiffer revealed in 2007, “I hated that film with a vengeance and could not believe how bad it was. At the time I was young and didn’t know any better.”


45. Miley Cyrus, Hannah Montana

“I was told for so long what a girl is supposed to be from being on that show,” Cyrus stated during an interview with Marie Claire in 2015. “I was made to look like someone that I wasn’t, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn’t on that show, it was like, Who the f*** am I?”


46. Harrison Ford, Blade Runner

Before the 2017 release of Blade Runner 2049, there was the original Blade Runner, which was filmed in 1999. Harrison Ford was not very satisfied with his role: “I didn’t like the movie one way or the other, with or without. I played a detective who did not have any detecting to do. In terms of how I related to the material, I found it very difficult. There was stuff that was going on that was really nuts.”


47. Matthew Godde, Leap Year

Godde admits he didn’t really like role:”The main reason I took it is so that I could come home at the weekends,” he said. It wasn’t because of the script, trust me. Do I feel I let myself down? No. Was it a bad job? Yes, it was. But, you know, I had a nice time and I got paid.”


48. Rooney Mara, Pan

She revealed in 2016 she hated the lack of diversity in the movie: “I really hate, hate, hate that I am on that side of the whitewashing conversation. I really do. I don’t ever want to be on that side of it again. I can understand why people were upset and frustrated.”
