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.

Here's Why the Best Actress Category at Oscars 2021 Is So Unpredictable

The 2021 Oscars are this weekend and while there are frontrunners in plenty of categories, there’s one category in particular that is still very unpredictable.

The Best Actress award could go to any of the five nominees and there is no clear winner right now. Leading up to the Academy Awards, there are four big awards shows that serve as pre-cursors to help predict who will win the Oscar. These four awards are the Golden Globe, the Critics Choice Award, the SAG Award, and the BAFTA.

All four of those awards went to different women this year!

The five nominees are Nomadland‘s Frances McDormand, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom‘s Viola Davis, Promising Young Woman‘s Carey Mulligan, The United States vs. Billie Holliday‘s Andra Day, and Pieces of a Woman‘s Vanessa Kirby.

We’re breaking down each actress’ chance at winning the award.

Viola Davis Says It Was 'Temporary Insanity' That She Said Yes To Michelle Obama Role in 'The First Lady'

Viola Davis is opening up about her upcoming role as Michelle Obama in Showtime series, The First Lady.

The 55-year-old actress was cast as the wife of the 44th President in the upcoming show that is described as “a revelatory reframing of American leadership, told through the lens of the women at the heart of the White House.”

Previously, Michelle reacted to the news of Viola‘s casting, saying that she feels “that I’m not worthy…Anything Viola does, she does it with passion and vigor, and I know she will do no less for this role.”

During an appearance on The Tonight Show, Viola says that taking the role was part of “temporary insanity. I lost my damn mind for about five minutes, and I made a decision I can’t take back.”

Then, she also returned the praise Michelle gave to her.

“The woman is a damn goddess. Everybody knows her. Everybody feels like they want to protect her. Here’s the thing: I’m just going to do the best I can,” Viola adds, and revealed that she has spoken to Michelle for many hours about portraying her on screen.

“It’s terrifying,” Viola said. “Here’s the thing — Sometimes, someone doesn’t live up to whatever image you have of them in your head. But when they do live up to the image, it’s quite frightening.”
