Jennifer Garner was launched into the Hollywood arena when she took the lead role in the series “Alias.” The show was an instant hit and sprawled over five seasons and 105 episodes — a lot of screen time for a main character like Garner and probably the reason that she got the stardom status that she carries today. In 2005, she starred as the main protagonist in “Elektra,” which she apparently was not the biggest fan of.
Some critics have also dubbed this the worst Marvel movie out there. The film’s failure was a rare loss for Marvel Studios as it grossed a measly $57 million, which is low compared to some of their highest-grossing movies like “Avengers”, grossing a mighty $2.7 billion. Perhaps it was the film’s financial failure that put her off.
Jamie Dornan - Christian Grey (50 Shades of Grey)
Jamie Dornan is an Irish actor who got some minor roles in the mid-2000s but his real claim to fame happened with "Fifty Shades of Grey," when he starred as the main protagonist. The suggestive movie was the talk of the town when it came out in 2015, and rightfully so, as it was based on one of the first books that allowed women to explore erotic fantasy.
The book that the movie is based on was empowering, but sadly Dornan was not such a fanatic about his role in this controversial movie. Though he didn't claim to regret it altogether, he did note that it was a "mad thing" to get involved with this movie, and understandably so!
Jason Segel - Marshall Eriksen (How I Met Your Mother)
Jason Segel portrayed Marshall in the famed series "How I Met Your Mother," which ran for a mighty nine seasons. Marshall was adored by many of the series' followers, but unfortunately, Segel admitted to feeling a bit lost when the show was done.
Many years after the show had finished airing, the star revealed that he asked himself a lot of questions like, "So what do I do now? Who am I without this stuff?" Luckily, the star went on to achieve other great things. In 2015, he played the novelist David Foster Wallace in "The End of the Tour," which earned him a nomination at the Film Independent Spirit Awards for best male lead.
Jamie Foxx - Lt. Purcell (Stealth)
Jamie Foxx is one of Hollywood's most respected actors. He started his acting career in the early '90s but only got his breakout role in 1999 when he portrayed Willie Beaman in "Any Given Sunday." In 2005, he broke everybody's heart in the drama "Ray," which is the role that gained him an Oscar.
This was also around the same time that he portrayed Lt. Purcell in "Stealth," which was notably one of his least favorite roles, according to the star. Sadly the movie fell short of its $135 million budget, as it only raked in about $80 million. At least Foxx had other brilliant roles around this time to redeem himself.
Macaulay Culkin - Kevin McAllister (Home Alone)
In 1990, Macaulay Culkin starred as Kevin McAllister in the humorous flick "Home Alone." The movie gradually became a Christmas classic thanks to the quotable phrases, morals, comedy scenes, and, of course, the main character. Some even say that it's the best Christmas movie that's ever been made, and it's still watched by millions today around the festive season time.
Despite the film's immense success, Culkin does not feel very cheery about this film which made him a star. Reportedly the celeb felt that the film got way too much attention than it deserved and called all the fuss over the film "creepy and flattering." Come on, KEVIN!
