Have you ever started working on a project, only for the result to not go as planned? Famous people always have this issue; Hollywood is littered with producers whose motivation is the bottom line before art. A recent online discussion shares names of celebrities who felt ashamed of a project they worked on.

Michael Caine: Jaws: The Revenge

Sir Michael is a goldmine for deadpan one-liners, and few can top his thoughts on the abject disaster otherwise known as Jaws: The Revenge. The fourth sequel in the Jaws dynasty is not Caine’s finest hour on screen. However, a commenter reminds us of what he said about the film: “I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific.”

Robert Pattinson: Twilight

Considering this franchise sent Pattinson into the fame stratosphere for a decade, you might think he would be more of a champion. However, the English actor has roasted Twilight several times. “There’s a lot of stuff in the Twilight world that doesn’t make sense,” Pattinson once said in an interview. “It’s like, why are they still going to high school? Like, up until last year? They’re a hundred years old.”

Florence Pugh: Don’t Worry Darling

This scenario was more a case of disowning the director than the project, but Florence Pugh was unenthused during the press tour of Olivia Wilde’s movie. Accusations of a toxic atmosphere, mainly driven by the director’s love affair with co-star Harry Styles, were rife. “I don’t think Florence disowned the movie or felt bad about it,” argues a Pugh follower. “I think she was proud of the film and her work in it, but sadly, the behind-the-scenes shenanigans overshadowed everything about it.”

Mark Hamill: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Aging Star Wars diehards almost passed out when Luke’s flickering cameo in Episode VII: The Force Awakens happened. They were even willing to forgive the first sequel’s brazen pastiche of Episode IV: A New Hope if it meant the baddest Jedi in the galaxy would be stepping up against The First Order. But (sigh) it was never meant to be, and Mark Hamill made no secret of his disdain for them butchering his beloved character. “There are interviews where you can see how painful it was to him at how his character was treated,” writes an observer. “In all the interviews, he said that it’s not his character anymore, and you can see his frustration.” We are with you, Mark; we are with you.

Viola Davis: The Help

I was surprised when I first read Davis felt ashamed for appearing in the Oscar-nominated movie set in Jim Crow-era Mississippi. However, when I reflect that Davis felt like she’d let her people down, I can see her point. “She described it in her memoir as essentially a movie about black people for white people,” a Davis fan explains. “She said she doesn’t regret doing it, but she feels like parts of it are wrong, like the maids refusing money for the interviews.”

Zac Efron: High School Musical

“I think I remember Zac Efron saying he regretted High School Musical because he was afraid of being pigeonholed,” recounts a moviegoer. High School Musical made Mr. Efron’s career, though he definitely should be scared of the dreaded typecast actor label. The good news for Efron is that he successfully rebranded himself as a comedy actor and is now moving into more serious territory.

Jenna Ortega: Wednesday

“She said in an interview she would make suggestions to change the dialogue and hinted that sometimes it wasn’t the greatest writing,” explains a commenter. When Wednesday dropped its first series, the young Latina superstar became a screen icon overnight. However, her opinions on the show’s writers have unnerved groups of fans. I am with Ortega on this; an actor needs writers to understand their role as they do; some of the plot doesn’t match her character.

Emilia Clarke: Game of Thrones, Season 8

Game of Thrones wowed fans for seven years before its inexplicable capitulation in season eight. When asked what she thought of the final chapter at a red carpet event, Emilia Clarke gave a tongue-in-cheek, “Best season ever!” response. “There’s a video of the cast doing table reads for the final season, and the facial expressions say it all for some moments,” adds a fellow disenfranchised Game of Thrones fanatic.

Elizabeth Berkley: Showgirls

The Saved by The Bell star took the Hollywood plunge in 1995 with the controversially acclaimed Paul Verhoeven striptease flick Showgirls. Sadly, the film tanked, and the media blamed the actress for its failure. “No one associated with the film spoke up on my behalf to protect me,” said Berkley in an interview some years later. “I was left out in the cold, and I was a pariah in the industry I had worked so hard for.”

Tommy Lee Jones: The Fugitive

Hilariously, Tommy Lee Jones made a huge P.R. misstep after completing production on his breakthrough movie, The Fugitive. “Tommy Lee Jones, when doing press for The Fugitive, said the film ‘wasn’t going to win any awards,'” jokes another contributor. “It got seven Academy Award nominations — including Best Picture — and a win for Jones for Best Supporting Actor.”
