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.

Michelle Pfeiffer Reveals Her Reason For Passing on 'Silence of the Lambs' Role

Michelle Pfeiffer is recalling the reason why she passed on starring as Clarice Sterling in the iconic movie, The Silence of the Lambs.

She did reveal that there was a regret with not taking the role, but not what you might think.

“The thing I most regret is missing the opportunity to do another film with Jonathan [Demme, director]. It was that evil won in the end, that at the end of that film evil ruled out. I was uncomfortable with that ending. I didn’t want to put that out into the world.”

Michelle and Jonathan had previously worked on 1988′s Married to the Mob together.

The stars of Silence of the LambsAnthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster – just recently reunited for the 30th anniversary of the film.

The movie follows the two stars as Melanie and Jack, busy single parents who are forced together by fate.

George recalled one scene they had together, which he had to film while drunk. He admitted he didn’t think he had work the next day, and went out and had a “few vodkas” with his longtime pal, Rande Gerber, the night before.

“I woke up… and I was like, ‘I feel OK!’ And I looked in the mirror and I was like, ‘Ah, I’m still drunk.’ And I got to the set and walked into the trailer and you looked at me and you go, ‘What,’ and I was like, ‘I didn’t know we were going to work today,’ and you go, ‘You’re still drunk,’” h e explained.

“I kept trying to spray whatever mouth spray I could because I smelled like a distillery,” he continued.

“And then you showed up one day with a broken face,” she replied.

“Yeah, I was playing basketball with the crew at lunch time and I took an elbow in the face from a guy, one of the crew members and broke my eye socket. My eye, it kept swelling and I was like, ‘I can still shoot.’ Remember, we actually shot scenes where we blocked half of my face with a kid?”

He also pointed out that the movie was not well received at first.

“Now people look at that film and they like it, but they were really tough on us at the time,” he said.

“My wife and her friends can’t believe that One Fine Day wasn’t a big hit. They love it. So don’t you think there should be a sequel to One Fine Day? An Older Fine Day, and the kids are all grown up now?”

“It could be called I’m Tired Today,” Michelle said.

He also revealed why he’s never starred in a major motion picture franchise.
