15 Movie Stars Who Just Could Not Stand Their Own Roles
11Jennifer Garner as Elektra in Elektra
Jennifer Garner only accepted the role of Elektra because it was in her contract as a Daredevil spinoff. A friend of Garner said that she had called him to tell him that the movie was “awful”. In fact, Garner was of that opinion even before she started filming and it’s quite understandable why she never had any tender feelings for her role.
12Jessica Alba as Sue Storm in Fantastic Four
Playing the character Sue Storm in Fantastic Four was very dissatisfying for Jessica Alba, and her own perception of her character was completely different from the way the director saw the character. The experience and the role in this movie also made her want to quit acting. Alba said that she was constantly told by the director to not make “that face”, to try to “cry pretty”, and she just needed to keep her face flat since they were going to use CGI to put in the tears later.
13George Clooney as Batman in Batman & Robin
Playing the role as Batman in Batman & Robin is one of George Clooney’s regrettable experiences. This is mainly because he thinks that the entire franchise has been ruined by him and for this reason he keeps apologizing for it.
14Christopher Plummer as Captain von Trapp in the Sound of Music
Plummer definitely hated The Sound of Music to go as far as calling it “The Sound of Mucus” and even referring to it as “that movie”. Despite being one of USA’s most loved movies, Plummer never did like his character and said that Captain von trap was boring and that trying to make him more interesting was the same as “beating a dead horse”.
15Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Tom in (500) Days of Summer
Contrary to what people saw, the actor had a very different perception of what his character was like. Gordon-Levitt says that he thinks that the character Tom is selfish and therefore, doesn’t like him. In his opinion Tom is obsessed with the girl and despite knowing her position from the fact that she told him about it, he still goes on to project all of his personal expectations on her. He thinks that Tom is no good guy either and says that he is concerned about the girls who see Tom as one.
