Stars Who Regret Their Movie & TV Roles

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.

George Clooney Says He Almost Starred in 'The Notebook' With Paul Newman

Ryan Gosling and James Garner were perfect as Noah Calhoun in The Notebook, but it turns out that the iconic movie could’ve starred George Clooney and Paul Newman instead.

During an interview with Deadline, George revealed that he and Paul had eyed the project together so they would work together in something.

“We were going to do The Notebook together,” he shared. “Basically, I was going to play him as a young man, and it was funny. We met and said, ‘This is it. It’s going to be great.’”

But it never came to be after George realized he didn’t look anything like a younger Paul.

“He’s one of the handsomest guys you’ve ever seen. We met up [again] and I said, ‘I can’t play you. I don’t look anything like you. This is insane,’” George added. “We just wanted to do it because we wanted to work together, [but] it ended up being not the right thing for us to do.”

Paul died in 2008 after a long battle with cancer.

Paul Newman Dead at 83

Legendary actor Paul Newman passed away last night at the age of 83 at his home in Westport, Connecticut.

A former chain smoker, Newman had been diagnosed with lung cancer in June of this year and ultimately died of it.

He appeared in over 60 movies including: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting. Nominated nine times for an Oscar, he won best actor for the 1986 film, The Color of Money.

Also known as the founder of Newman’s Own food company, his daugher Nell will most likely take over. Profits and royalties from the company are donated to charity and have exceeded $220 million as of last year.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul’s family and friends.
