Stars Who Regret Their Roles in Movies & TV

Not every actor likes to see themselves on the big 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 various magazine interviews and through assorted 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 to date.

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.

A Long-Rumored Story About Princess Diana Was Just Confirmed by Loni Anderson

Loni Anderson is opening up about some long-standing rumors!

The WKRP in Cincinnati actress made a virtual appearance on Andy Cohen‘s show Watch What Happens Live and addressed a rumor about her ex-husband Burt Reynolds and Princess Diana.

One viewer asked Loni if it was true that the then-Princess of Wales sent Burt a thank you note for helping to keep her out of the tabloids by monopolizing headlines with news about his divorce.

“Yes, that’s true,” Loni confirmed.

“No way!” exclaimed Andy.

Loni and Burt‘s separation was one of the uglier divorces in Hollywood. The pair married in 1988 and adopted a son together, Quinton. They announced their split in 1993 and a contentious legal battle ensued that played out in the media, with Burt slamming Loni‘s parenting and accusing her of infidelity.

Princess Diana also had a tumultuous year in 1993. In January the infamous “Camillagate” tapes surfaced, phone recordings of Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla. By December of that year, Diana had announced her plans to retire from public life.

Andy then asked Loni to address another long-standing rumor that she once maxed out Burt‘s credit card with a $45,000 limit in 90 minutes, one of the claims her ex-husband had made against her during the divorce.

“No, I never had an Amex from Burt,” she replied. “I only had my own, so no, that would be completely false.”

Prince Charles is reportedly “devastated” over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s tell-all interview.

Burt Reynolds Finally Laid to Rest Over Two Years After His Death

Burt Reynolds has finally reached his final resting place.

Two and a half years after his death, the beloved actor was laid to rest at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Thursday morning (February 11) in Los Angeles, the Associated Press reports.

Burt‘s ashes were placed in a grave next to a lake while a small, private ceremony was held via Zoom for his relatives.

As of right now, a temporary headstone with “Burt Reynolds” marks the grave site, but a bronze or stone bust of him is being commissioned. The Hollywood Forever president and co-owner Tyler Cassity told the press site that they are planning on unveiling the bust to the public in September on the third anniversary of Burt‘s death.

Burt died at the age of 82-years-old back on September 6, 2018 at a hospital in Jupiter, Florida. Burt was cremated a few days later and a memorial with a small group of his friends and family was held in Florida two weeks after.

As of right now, it is unclear why it took over two years for Burt‘s ashes to be buried.
