15 Movie Stars Who Just Could Not Stand Their Own Roles
A fan who had proudly said that he had watched Star Wars a 100 times was once asked by Alec Guinness who starred as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the movie, to promise to never watch it ever again. This was because Alec wasn’t exactly a fan of his character and neither was he a fan of the franchise. Surprisingly there are many actors and celebrities like him who for certain reasons are not very proud of the roles they were made to play. Here are some such actors who despised their own roles:
1Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen in the Twilight Series
If there was anyone who hated his own character in a movie the most, it would be none other than Robert Pattinson. He had said that it felt like his progressed stopped while he was playing his part for the movies. Pattinson thinks that the perfect character of Edward Cullen is actually ridiculous, and as he went on to read the script, it just made him hate his character more.
2Evangeline Lily as Kate Austin in Lost
At the beginning of the show Lost, Evangeline Lily thought her character as Kate Austin was cool, but as the show progressed, Lily’s opinion changed as she confessed that her character was becoming “predictable and obnoxious”. She didn’t like the development of her character from an autonomous and interesting person with a story of her own turning into someone who was simply “chasing 2 men around the island”.
3Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars Franchise
These were Alec Guinness’ words which he wrote in his diary when he was shooting for the popular saga- “Apart from the money, I regret having embarked on the film”. As surprising as it may be, the actor was never really fond of the movies, and only thought of them as “fairy-tale rubbish”. He particularly despised his role as Obi-Wan and the dialogues because it made him feel a rift in between himself and the younger generation and also made him feel old.
4Sean Connery as James Bond in James Bond movies
It is no doubt that Sean Connery gained worldwide fame and a huge fortune from his character as James Bond; however, he had to pay for it by being linked to that character forever. Sean sees no character development in James Bond ever since the first movie and described his thoughts about always hating the character clearly. He even expressed that he would like to kill James Bond.
5Halle Berry as Catwoman in Catwoman
Halle Berry definitely deserves a reward for hating her role as Catwoman the most. She even went as far as appearing to pick up her “Worst Actress” award for this role and also thanked Warner Bros. in her speech for making her play this character in such an “awful” movie.
