10 Hollywood Stars Who Hated Their Own Movies

What did you think of these movies?

By:  (cheatsheet.com) – Not every film can be a hit, as many actors know all too well. But some movie stars are more outspoken about their misses than others. When it comes to choosing projects, several A-list  actors — from Channing Tatum to Matt Damon — have openly admitted that they don’t always get it right, even going so far as to publicly insult their own films. Below, check out 10 stars who prove that they don’t have to like a movie, just because they’re in it.

1. Channing Tatum, GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra

During a recent radio interview with Howard Stern, Tatum wasn’t shy about revealing his less-than-positive feeling toward the 2009 film. “Look, I’ll be honest. I f***en hate that movie. I hate that movie,” he said.

The actor also explained that Paramount pushed him into taking on the film “(After) Coach Carter, they signed me for a three-picture deal … And as a young (actor), you’re like, `Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I’m doing that,’” Tatum said. Though he admits he thought “the script wasn’t any good,” he had “no option” but to move forward.

2. George Clooney, Batman & Robin

Joel Schumacher’s contribution to the Batman franchise has become the butt of many jokes over the years – some of which came from its own star, Clooney. The actor has been open about his disdain for the 1998 film. “I always apologize for Batman & Robin,” he recently said on The Graham Norton Show. “Let me just say that I’d actually thought I’d actually 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. Um, it wasn’t.”

3. Halle Berry, Catwoman

Critics harshly panned the 2004 action film at the time of its debut and apparently Berry agreed with them. The movie earned Berry the award for worst actor at the 25th annual Razzie Awards. “I want to thank Warner Bros. for casting me in this piece-of-sh–, god-awful movie,” the actress said during her acceptance speech when she picked up the “trophy” at the Razzie ceremony. She also added, “To give a really bad performance like mine, you need to have really bad actors.”

4. Katherine Heigl, Knocked Up

2007’s Knocked Up help elevate Heigl’s movie star status, but though the actress claimed she enjoyed working with Apatow and Rogen, she wasn’t a big fan of the film itself. “It was a little sexist,” she said of the comedy in a highly publicized Vanity Fair interview. “It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as loveable, goofy, fun-loving guys.”

Heigl also said the movie’s portrayal of women made it difficult for her to work on the project at times. “It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days,” she said. “Ninety-eight percent of…
