Actors Who Regret Their Roles in Movies & TV

Not every actor likes to see themselves on screen – but some don’t even like to remember that they participated in a production altogether.

Over the years, many different stars have revealed in magazine interviews and through podcast and TV appearances that they don’t always love the movie and TV roles they took on in the past…even if the roles might be some of their most iconic and memorable works.

Sometimes, the stars have doubts about their performance. Or, they had poor experiences with their co-stars or directors. And in other cases, they just decided that the script wasn’t all that good looking back. In any case, they’ve all since come out and said they don’t necessarily love their appearances in certain films and TV shows.

Idris Elba Says Racist Movies & TV Shouldn't Be Censored

Idris Elba is speaking out about the recent discussion surrounding what to do with films and television shows containing controversial racist content.

The 47-year-old actor spoke out in an interview with Radio Times.

“I’m very much a believer in freedom of speech. But the thing about freedom of speech is that it’s not suitable for everybody. That’s why we have a rating system. We tell you that this particular content is rated U, PG, 15, 18. To mock the truth, you have to know the truth. But to censor racist themes within a show, to pull it — wait a second, I think viewers should know that people made shows like this,” he said.

“Out of respect for the time and the movement, commissioners and archive-holders pulling things they think are exceptionally tone-deaf at this time — fair enough and good for you. But I think, moving forward, people should know that freedom of speech is accepted, but the audience should know what they’re getting into. I don’t believe in censorship. I believe that we should be allowed to say what we want to say. Because, after all, we’re story-makers,” he continued.

An episode of this beloved show was recently pulled from streaming for blackface.
