Heigl is pretty well known for having opinions about the roles she takes on. One part that she does not have a good opinion of is “Knocked Up.” The film has her appearing as an up-and-coming reporter that finds herself in a family way thanks to Seth Rogan’s character.
It’s one of the actress’s biggest regrets when it came to films. Still, the film did plenty well – grossing over two hundred million against a budget of thirty million. Heigl has said that the film made women seem humorless and uptight, while men appeared goofy and fun-loving.
Arnold Schwarzenegger — “Red Sonja”
The big muscle man who told everyone he would be back in the “Terminator” movies has been in lots of schlocky action flicks, but few of them are worse than “Red Sonja.”
Arnold had gone on record saying that it was the worst film he had ever made and that when he was a father of young children, he would threaten the tots with having to watch the movie if they misbehaved. Apparently, they didn't act up too much. The film was nominated for three Razzies and won one, which was Worst New Star, won by Brigitte Nielson.
Marlon Brando — “A Streetcar Named Desire”
For the movies that launch actors and actresses to stardom, one of the most famous was “A Streetcar Named Desire.” As soon as the movie hit screens, Marlon Brando was a star, and he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. However, he told “Time” that he detested his character.
Well, he's probably grateful for how much the movie did for his career. And the movie itself was a massive hit – it earned millions, has gotten a place in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress, and has been buried in praise from Roger Ebert and Rotten Tomatoes to Woody Allen.
Harrison Ford — the “Star Wars” Series
Harrison Ford didn't hate his role in the “Star Wars” series – he embodied the lovable rogue so much that he's still basically a stereotype when it comes to that kind of character. However, after the first movie, it was pretty much assured that Ford was going to have a long and successful career in Hollywood, and he was itching to get started.
He thought that his character should have died at both the end of both “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of the Jedi.” He was quite glad when the series ended (you know, the first time it ended) after asking George Lucas to kill the character off several times.
Sean Connery — “Dr. No” and the Bond Series
There are lots of examples of actors and actresses disliking for one reason or another the role that made them famous. One such example is Sean Connery and his famous James Bond character.
He starred in a total of eight Bond films, starting with “Dr. No” in 1962 and concluding with “Never Say Never Again” in 1983. However, he was getting fed up with the character and the series, despite it being the big reason anyone knows his name today. According to an interview with “The Observer,” he had always hated the role.
