Movie Scenes That Actors Regret Doing

Acting is a profession that requires a lot of versatility and willingness to test boundaries. In the act of immersion, sometimes things are done that the actor himself would never even consider, yet it must be played as natural. Often, this bravery pays off with a critically acclaimed performance that's lauded for years or even becomes cinematic history. Sometimes, however, it results in a complete nightmare for everyone involved. Here are some particularly painful examples of the latter.

Burt Reynolds' Deliverance from a pain free existence

Deliverance is a classic drama about man against nature (and other man), but it's infamous for a scene too graphic to discuss here. Strangely enough, the only open regret from any of the actors comes from one who broke his butt a completely different way. There's a scene in which the canoe Burt Reynolds' character is paddling goes over a waterfall. Director John Boorman wanted to use a dummy, but Reynolds wasn't having it. Being literally the condensed essence of 1970s masculinity, he insisted on performing his own stunts and went down the waterfall himself, landing on rocks that shattered his tailbone. Adding insult to injury, all that verisimilitude didn't even create a more lifelike effect.

"He said his shoulder really hit a rock, and his head hit another rock," comedian Norm Macdonald told Howard Stern in 2016. "And then he said the next thing he remembered was he was way down stream, all of his clothes were torn off. [...] Next thing he remembers, he's waking up in the hospital, John Boorman's at his bedside. And he goes, 'I said to John, how'd it look... on the dailies?' And John Boorman said, 'It looked like a dummy falling over a waterfall.'"

Kate Winslet's autograph agony

Titanic was a massively successful romantic dramatization of the sinking of the titular ship. It's full of memorable moments, including a scene in which Kate Winslet's Rose character asks Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack to "draw me like one of your French girls." It's a passionate moment showing her character overcoming the disapproval of her fiancée and mother to claim her own agency and embrace the man she's fallen in love with. Yet even now, weirdly obsessive fans try to get her to sign pictures of herself naked, and she'd love for that to stop.

"I don't sign that picture", she told Yahoo! News. "It feels very uncomfortable. Why would you do that?" Winslet is now 41, a happily married mother of three and a multiple award-winning actress. She finds herself baffled by why certain members of her fanbase are so obsessed with this one particular image decades later.

Taylor Lautner would like his shirt back, please

Taylor Lautner played the werewolf character Jacob in the Twilight series. His lycanthropic transformations were accompanied with the removal of his clothes, giving fans of the series many opportunities to view his fit, muscular body. Many, many more opportunities than he was ever comfortable with.

"If I had to choose, I would never take my shirt off again in a movie," Taylor has elaborated, "but I guess that's not very realistic. I certainly won't be asking to do it, though."

While he takes pride in the effort he put in to get the physique shown off in the films, he worries that it gets in the way of people appreciating the work he put in to polish his acting craft. He doesn't want to be seen as "just a body," but a competent actor that's qualified for non-beefcake roles.

Even Eva Mendes gets intimidated

Once Upon a Time in Mexico concludes director Robert Rodriguez's "Mexico Trilogy" with Johnny Depp playing CIA agent Sheldon Sands and Eva Mendes as a sadistic AFN operative who betrays him. They wind up kissing before the former shoots the latter dead. It's a pretty epic scene.

Mendes does have one particular regret about that sequence, however. Seems she'd been harboring a long crush on Depp, and wishes the kiss had been drawn out longer. "I was so intimidated by him," she explained.

Terence Stamp's missing scene partner

In The Phantom Menace, the first of the much-maligned Star Wars prequels trilogy, much of the film takes place establishing various debates in the Galactic Senate that lead to the establishment of the totalitarian Empire that dominates the original trilogy. Terence Stamp plays Chancellor Valorum, who's ushered out in favor of the secret Sith Lord Palpatine by a vote of "no confidence" from Queen Amidala, played by Natalie Portman. It's about as exciting to watch as an actual Senate hearing, but it's important to the overall plot (or what passes for one).

Stamp was excited at first by the idea of working alongside Portman, confessing an admiration for her. However, when he actually arrived on set, Portman was nowhere in sight, and he was directed to a piece of paper taped to the wall and told that was for all purposes the "actress" he was expected to dialog with. His disappointment was palpable. "It was just pretty boring," he was reported to say later.

Jim Carrey's Kick-Ass regrets

In the 2013 action comedy Kick-Ass 2, Jim Carrey plays a superhero called Colonel Stars and Stripes who's gruesomely murdered by the supervillan group who become the antagonists of the title character. A few months after the film was released, Carrey publicly condemned the level of violence of the film after experiencing change of heart in the aftermath of the tragic Sandy Hook Massacre, which happened shortly after he'd wrapped up filming his scenes.

"I did Kick-Ass 2 a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence," wrote Carrey. "My apologies to others involve[d] with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart."

Jennifer Lawrence's soused sex scene

Passengers is a science fiction adventure starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Despite that megawatt cast, it didn't do very well in the box office, partly thanks to the revelation of a crucial plot twist that makes the film significantly darker than it looks. The disturbing fact that a crucial plot point involves a startling disregard for the consent and personal autonomy of one of the characters isn't helped by Lawrence admitting she spent the sex scenes too drunk to remember doing them.

She had jitters about the shoot because it was going to be her first time filming a sex scene and also felt guilty about doing so with Pratt, who was married. "I got really drunk," she admitted, "But that led to more anxiety because I was like 'What have I done? I don't know'... And it was gonna be my first time kissing a married man, and the guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach."

Sharon Stone felt Basic-ally deceived

In Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone plays writer/murderer Catherine Tramell. The character is performed as a classic noir vampy type, easily able to manipulate the men around her. That element is ratcheted up in a scene where she's interrogated by police, whom she completely disarms with wit, snark—and eventually just a simple crossing and uncrossing of her legs, revealing her lack of underwear. It's an iconic dramatic scene of power reversal, and Stone had no idea how it turned out until her first viewing of the finished film.

She later claimed she was advised on set by director Paul Verhoeven to remove her underwear because it was distracting the shot. The director advised that the scene would be playful innuendo and nothing graphic would be seen. This, famously, turned out not to be the case, and Stone was so shocked the first time she viewed the film she said she slapped Verhoeven.

Bruce Campbell has a bloody awful time

Evil Dead II was an absolute bloodbath on either side of the camera, and lead actor Bruce Campbell was constantly covered in gallons of sticky gore. In his memoir, If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor, Campbell wrote that all the fake blood made him pretty miserable — and also admits it was his own fault. "Out of sheer bullheadedness," Campbell said, "I had insisted on using the original, time-tested Karo syrup formula from the first Evil Dead film. The visual effect was nice, but I became the object of desire for every fly in Wadesboro."

Campbell had an especially hard time in the scene when a geyser of blood bursts out of a wall and slams into his face, drowning him in red goo. In the scene, it looks like Campbell is standing upright, but really, he's lying down, and the blood is being dumped from a giant drum hovering above his face. Campbell was more than a little worried about suffocating, but that didn't stop director Sam Raimi from dousing him in 55 gallons of fake blood. "I lived to tell the tale," Campbell wrote, "but every time I blew my nose for the next two weeks, the snot was bright red."

Elliot Page's character makes a bad joke

The 2007 hit Juno follows the titular pregnant teen (Elliot Page) as she decides to give her baby to a wealthy couple (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner). And it's during a scene in which Page's Juno is discussing potential baby names with Bateman's Mark that things get problematic. Speaking with Bustle, Page said they majorly regret this moment because their character makes a homophobic joke. When Bateman floats the possibility of naming the baby "Madison," Juno responds, "Isn't that a little gay?"

"It wasn't something I totally registered at the time," Page told Bustle. "But, of course, now that I'm older I do. So many movies I loved as a kid are just rampant with homophobia and transphobia and biphobia, and I'm not excusing it by any means." Page came out as transgender in 2020, and has been a vocal advocate for LGBTQ+ rights for many years. 

Several years after the release of Juno, Page did a reading of the Juno script for Planned Parenthood, and when they got to that bit, they skipped the line entirely.

Denzel Washington gets all wet

Based on a 1980s TV show, The Equalizer stars Denzel Washington as Robert McCall, an unassuming widower who works at a hardware store and reads classic literature in his spare time — not that he has a lot of it to spare, because he's always busy killing bad guys. An ex-CIA agent, McCall gets pulled back into action when a young woman (Chloe Grace Moretz) is viciously beaten by Russian gangsters. That kickstarts a war between McCall and the mob, one that eventually escalates into a tool shop showdown.

After luring the bad guys to his place of employment, McCall uses all manner of tricks and tools to pick them off one by one. Eventually, an explosion sets off the store's sprinkler system, giving us an awesome moment when McCall uses a nail gun to bring down the villain, looking incredibly badass as he gets drenched in the artificial rain and water rolls down his stone-cold face.

Speaking with CinemaBlend, Washington admitted that after three days of shooting for 13 hours a day, he started to disagree with the whole "tough guy stands there in the rain" concept. Absolutely soaked, he was more than a little jealous of director Antoine Fuqua and the rest of the film crew "because they got on raincoats, and they're dry." Movie stars get all the glory, but at least the gaffers and the lighting guys can stay comfy offscreen.

Michael Fassbender is his own fiercest critic

Michael Fassbender kills it pretty much every time he steps in front of the camera. At this point, no one questions his acting abilities... unless they're Michael Fassbender.

When he was played a clip from X-Men: Days of Future Past at a Toronto Film Festival fundraising event, he looked a little embarrassed. The scene involved Magneto (Fassbender) and his frenemy Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) getting into a heated discussion while on a plane. At one point, Magneto loses his cool, raises his voice, and starts the plane a-shaking. To most moviegoers, Fassbender is a fantastic supervillain, but the star himself wasn't pleased with this particular moment.

"I don't actually like that performance there, to be honest," Fassbender admitted (via Vulture). "I just think it's me shouting. It's just like some dude shouting." Of course, if you're going to be a shouty villain in an X-Men movie, you could get a lot hammier. (We're looking at you, Oscar Isaac.) Maybe the poor guy should stop being so hard on himself. As we've pointed out before, Fassbender might be the best X-Men casting choice after Hugh Jackman, so we think he's magnetic in every scene he's in.

Kurt Russell faces the music

Directed by Quentin Tarantino, The Hateful Eight was a lighting rod for hot takes and angry opinions. Some claimed the film was misogynistic, others blasted it for its use of racial slurs, and others couldn't get over the gore. But music lovers probably have the best reason to hate on The Hateful Eight, as Kurt Russell's character destroys a guitar... which turned out to be an expensive antique.

In the film, Jennifer Jason Leigh plays a shackled outlaw named Daisy Domergue who passes the time playing an old folk ballad. But her jam session is cut short when bounty hunter John "The Hangman" Ruth (Russell) yanks the guitar out of her hands and smashes it to bits. Sadly, Russell thought this was just some prop when it was really an instrument from the 1860s — one valued at $40,000.

The incident really shook up Leigh, as she'd fallen in love with the antique, and Russell was absolutely devastated by what he'd done. Speaking with Billboard, Leigh explained that Russell "felt terrible" when he discovered his mistake. "When he found out," Leigh said, "his eyes literally welled up. It ended up being great for the scene, but very sad for the guitar, and for my guitar teacher, and for me."

Chris Hemsworth would rather keep his shirt on

You'd think if you were built like the God of Thunder, you'd want to walk around without your shirt on all the time. But even though he plays the mighty Thor, Chris Hemsworth isn't crazy about getting undressed onscreen. Speaking with MTV News, Hemsworth admitted he was hesitant to film a topless scene for Thor: The Dark World. As he put it, after Joss told him to get his shirt off, "I said, 'Well, I don't know. What's the why? What are we doing?" But Hemsworth's questions fell on deaf ears, and Thor's amazing abs were put on display for the world to see.

The same issue came up in Thor: Ragnarok. Speaking with Access Hollywood, Hemsworth said he was really happy that originally, he could walk around fully clothed for the whole film. But eventually, director Taika Waititi decided the movie needed some eye candy. As the filmmaker put it, "I think we need to put some bums into seats." Hemsworth removed his top yet again, and while it's sad he was upset about it, he totally ragna-rocked that scene.

Josh Brolin feels bad for killing a god

It's fun playing the biggest baddie in the universe. Just ask Josh Brolin. He crushed it as Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, and he really enjoyed crushing the Hulk as well. Speaking with USA Today, Brolin admitted that using MMA moves on his green rival was pretty awesome. "I love that Thanos uses a knee," Brolin said. "That was great."

However, Brolin didn't have such a good time when it came to killing Loki. While the shapeshifting god of mischief does have a penchant for faking his own death, it seems Loki is gone for good this time. And according to Brolin, that knowledge took its toll on Tom Hiddleston.

"He had been with that character for so long," Brolin said. "And he's so lauded for doing it. Tom was so vulnerable at that moment. So choking him out wasn't the most fun thing I have ever done." But even though it made Brolin a bit wistful, Loki's demise — coupled with the vicious Hulk beating — immediately set the stakes for Avengers: Infinity War, established the dark tone, and let us know that the Mad Titan wasn't messing around.

Zoey Deutch has a problem with pizza

Romantic comedies are kind of rare these days, so it's always nice when a good one comes along. When Set It Up hit Netflix in 2018, critics and audiences were delighted by the story of two employees (Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell) trying to get their respective bosses to hook up. Naturally, the two fall in love themselves, and in the film's most famous scene, they bond over a cheese pizza.

Unfortunately for Deutch, filming that scene wasn't exactly romantic. In fact, speaking with HelloGiggles, she described the moment as "really not okay" and one with "real undertones of pain, physical pain." She and Powell took very different approaches to how they ate their meal. According to Deutch, Powell was "smart" and "careful" about nibbling on his "gluten-free pizza." Deutch, on the other hand, devoured four entire pies and "threw up violently halfway through the scene."

The show had to go on, of course. "I had to proceed to be very close to Glen Powell," Deutch said, "who now, I think, looks at me in a very different light." She hasn't lost her taste for the classic cheesy cuisine, but rewatching that scene probably makes her feel a little queasy.

The BDSM scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey were a nightmare for everyone involved

Fifty Shades of Grey is ultimately the product of a Twilight fanfiction session gone way out of control, becoming a series of novels and a film. Jamie Dornan plays the sadistic Christian Grey, and Dakota Johnson plays Anastasia Steele, the woman who submits to his interests and impulses. In lieu of more traditional romance and sex dynamics, a lot of the erotic tension is played out in bondage, domination and torture scenes which were apparently not a lot of fun to act out.

Shooting scenes like this isn't a one-take deal. This means Johnson spent hours tied up, blindfolded miming being struck with a whip. As she reported to Time, "Filming a sex scene is not a sensual or pleasurable environment. It's really hot — not in a steamy, sexual way. It's just sweaty and it's not very comfortable." She later referred to the experience as "emotionally taxing," but evolved from being miserable to thinking "Okay, let's just get this over with."

Margot Robbie gets messy

While the character of Harley Quinn is one of the best parts of a lackluster movie, Margot Robbie had a pretty unpleasant time making Suicide Squad. First, there was the skimpy outfit that made her feel "self-conscious." Then there were those spiky gold bangles which she hated because she kept accidentally poking herself with them. But when The Washington Post asked Robbie which scene was her least favorite in the film, she didn't hesitate for a second, naming the moment when Quinn throws herself into a vat full of white ooze that bleaches her skin Joker white.

"That chemical [scene] was the most unpleasant thing I've ever done in my entire life," Robbie said. It's all to prove her devotion to the Clown Prince of Crime, but behind the scenes, she was totally repulsed. She described the liquid as "gluggy paint stuff" that got inside her ears and nose. "I was choking on it underwater," she said, "and I couldn't breathe, and I tried to open my eyes, and it would glaze over my eyeballs, and I could only see white. It was horrible."

George Reeves should have never claimed to be bulletproof

Superman is the unequivocal superhero known for leaping tall buildings, outrunning speedy locomotives, and holding the strength of the yellow sun within his blue tights. Throughout the character's long history, the Man of Steel has shown off a whole assortment of superpowers, including freezing breath, X-ray vision, and producing miniature clones of himself from his hands. Still, one of Supe's most amazing abilities is his invulnerability, able to take the biggest of punches from the most powerful of enemies, and more relevantly, making him bulletproof.

In Superman's multigenerational portrayals on movie screens, it has always been a highlight to watch bullets bounce off his chest — and eyeball, in the case of 2006's "Superman Returns" when big blue was portrayed by Brandon Routh. Still, the first actor to give Superman a full-length feature film, "Superman and the Mole Men," regrets his character having a bulletproof physique.

George Reeves, who later portrayed Superman for many years on television, would often make public appearances throughout the 1950s. Unfortunately, during one of these events, a wide-eyed child decided to bring a loaded gun in hopes of testing the superhero's imperviousness. Thankfully, no one was harmed, yet Reeves would later retire the cape and instead make appearances talking to children about the importance of gun safety.

Rupert Grint did not enjoy kissing Harry Potter co-star

The stars of the "Harry Potter" franchise started their eight-movie journey when they were young, ranging from 14 to just 10 years old. By the time "Deathly Hollows — Part 2" wrapped up, the kids were in their early 20s. Spending those impressionable years together undoubtedly built a bond between the adolescent actors, especially the franchise's three main stars — Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson. Much like the characters on-screen, the actors developed a relationship equivalent to a sibling connection — which made things mighty awkward when their characters became romantically involved.

"I've known Emma since she was literally 9 years old and we had this very brother-sister relationship," Rupert Grint explained in an interview with People. In a beloved Hollywood love story, Grint and Watson's characters grow a connection over the franchise's eight parts inevitably leading to them embracing one another. "It just felt very surreal," Grint said. "I have a memory of her face getting closer and closer. Like, 'Oh my God.' I can't really remember anything apart from that." 

Despite the actors being aware of the inevitable kiss that they would share, it did not take away the awkwardness of the situation that Grint would rather forget happened. "I never look back at that scene," he said. "One take was enough. It was such a huge moment and there was so much expectation. Quite a lot of pressure actually."

Arnold Schwarzenegger struggled to become Hercules

Arguably, the biggest action star that ever was, Arnold Schwarzenegger was an unexpected star that took bodybuilding into the bright lights of Hollywood. Appearing in franchises like "Terminator" and "Predator," Schwarzenegger has always been adored by fans for his muscle-bound physique and uniquely intimidating accent. However, even the brawniest of superstars need to get their start somewhere. For Schwarzenegger, a young 22-year-old American newcomer, he had to stumble his way through his most forgettable feature, "Hercules in New York."

Going by the stage name, "Arnold Strong," and confusingly co-starring comedian Arnold Stang, "Hercules in New York" is a lot like what it sounds like: The Olympian is transported to modern-day New York City subsequently adapting to a new world while fighting off fantasy villains — including a massive grizzly bear. Unfortunately, Schwarzenegger (or Strong, if you prefer) admits that he was not camera ready and needed to learn some things about acting before starring in a big-budget movie. "I couldn't even understand all the sentences in the script," the action star wrote in his biography, "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story."

Unable to handle the seriousness of co-star Ernest Graves, who portrayed his godly father Zeus, Schwarzenegger regrettably couldn't hold it together for one particular scene. "He really got into it, and that was funny to me. But, of course, you're not supposed to laugh on set. You're supposed to help the other performers," Schwarzenegger wrote. "That is so important, but I had no clue. When something struck me as funny, I just laughed."

A bad cold killed the mood for the Water for Elephants co-stars

A romantic drama that takes place in a 1930s circus, seemed like a steep task for the stars of "Water for Elephants." Thankfully, Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson brought this lovable tale to life with their on-screen chemistry, despite a ten-year age gap. Regardless, the elephant-infused romance meant that Witherspoon would get to kiss one of Hollywood's most sought-after hunks. Unfortunately, the big moment was not all that it was cracked up to be.

While the pair shared the center of the ring in "Water for Elephants," the romance was killed by an awful case of the common cold. "I was doing it when I had a really bad cold," Pattinson told MTV. "My nose is running all over the place, and it was in one of the additional photography scenes. And Reese had this wig on, and literally, I was wiping my nose on her wig." Obviously not an ideal romantic moment, Witherspoon confirmed it was anything but lovable, "It wasn't appealing; it wasn't pleasant." Subsequently, the actress warned all the adorning fans of Pattinson that long to kiss the "Twilight" hunk: "Bring a Sudafed!"

Tim Robbins did not like the looks of his Howard the Duck co-star

Tim Robbins is arguably one of the most underrated actors of the generation, playing parts in some of the biggest movies in the last 40 years, including "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Bull Durham." However, before landing ground-breaking roles, Robbins thought he was hitting the big-time with one of Marvel Comic's first live-action adaptations ever made, 1986's "Howard the Duck."

"First of all, put it in perspective. George Lucas had just done the Star Wars trilogy. He was producing this movie," Robbins said in an AV Club interview. "The comic book was pretty great. I was thrilled to get the job. It was also more money than I'd ever seen." Unfortunately, the actor knew he made a mistake after the first scene. "Walking onto the set the first day, I realized they had miscast the duck." The pre-MCU Marvel movie was not what he expected. "Howard's a cigar-chomping, rude, skirt-chasing, weird-ass alien," Robbins recalled about seeing the Howard the Duck costume. "This was just a ton of cute."

George Clooney regrets one line as much as his anatomically correct Batman costume

The fanbase of superheroes can be quite critical of the actors that portray their favorite comic book characters. Especially when it comes to one of the most popular vigilantes of them all: Batman. With celebrated portrayals of Bruce Wayne-slash-Caped Crusader being delivered by A-list actors such as Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton, and Christian Bale, expectations are high for anybody playing the Dark Knight on the big screen. Unfortunately, one actor must be recognized as the worst Batman of all time, and George Clooney has volunteered himself for the honor.

To be fair, Clooney is not solely responsible for the forgettable imaginings of the superhero in his singular outing in the cape and cowl, "Batman and Robin." The film is riddled with problems that made it a critical disaster, including over-merchandising, studio involvement, and a Batman costume that featured too many body parts. "I don't want to get into all the bat nipples," Clooney told People Magazine.

Still, Clooney admits that he had a part to play in the failed comic book adaptation: "I did one superhero movie and I f*ed it up so bad." Admitting his part in it doesn't mean that the actor doesn't regret following marching orders, especially when it comes to specific parts of the script. "Having said I sucked in it," Clooney said in a GQ interview, "I can also say that none of these other elements worked, either. You know? Lines like 'Freeze, Freeze!'"

Jessica Alba did not have a fantastic time being Invisible Woman

For most actors and actresses that land a role in a comic book adaptation, bringing a superhero to life can be a dream come true. Unfortunately for Jessica Alba, who played Sue Storm, the Invisible Woman, in 2005's "Fantastic Four" and its sequel, the dream turned into a nightmare. Long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe hit its stride with "Iron Man," Marvel struggled to have their longlist of superheroes portrayed properly on the big screen. On the list of failed experiments are 2003's "Daredevil" and "Hulk." Still, one of the most critically panned adaptations of the early 2000s was Tim Story's "Fantastic Four," or worse, its 2007 follow-up, "Rise of Silver Surfer."

Reportedly, one of the biggest struggles with the "FF" movies involved Alba losing her confidence. For context, the Invisible Woman had previously found herself in hot water with filmmakers after stating that "good actors never use the script" unless they are amazingly written, upsetting writers at the time. With a disconnect between Alba and the creatives, directors would force her to read lines word for word to the point she nearly quit acting altogether.

The most regrettable scene for Alba came during "Rise of Silver Surfer." "I remember when I was dying," the actress exposed to Elle Magazine (via Access). "The director was like, 'It looks too real. It looks too painful. Can you be prettier when you cry? Don't do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.'"

Shia LaBeouf did not swing with the monkeys for Indiana Jones

Certainly, Shia LaBeouf has made many regrettable decisions in his tumultuous career. But the actor has been most vocal about one particular role that saw the budding star walk away from partaking in big-budget films. LaBeouf was a child actor who caught the attention of one of Hollywood's biggest directors, Steven Spielberg. Under Spielberg's tutelage, LaBeouf landed the lead role in "Transformers" before the pair finally worked together on "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

Unfortunately, the film disappointed fans of the beloved franchise and it didn't take long for LaBeouf to start pointing fingers and admit the movie was a mess. "I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished," LaBeouf said to the Los Angeles Times in 2010. The actor points to a particular scene that he regrets the most: "You get to monkey-swinging and things like that, and you can blame it on the writer, and you can blame it on Steven [Spielberg]. But the actor's job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn't do it. So that's my fault. Simple."

However, Ford did not share the same sentiments and instead criticized LaBeouf for his unprofessionalism, "I think he was a f***ing idiot," Ford candidly stated in an interview with Details (via NME). "As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete a** of myself."

Amanda Seyfried did not have the pipes for Les Misérables

Between appearing in films such as "Ted," "Mean Girls," and "Mamma Mia," Amanda Seyfried has shown a wide range of abilities as an actress. Her talents have brought her a slew of awards and nominations, including most recently picking up a Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy award for her performance in "The Dropout." Still, the actress has admitted that she has one significant regret in her career, and it has to do with her part in one of her biggest movies to date: "Les Misérables."

Starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Anne Hathaway, 2012's "Les Misérables" made a classic novel from the 1860s relevant again, collecting over $400 million worldwide as well as an assortment of accolades. However, the musical opted to film things a bit differently than other movies in the genre. "Les Misérables" recorded live singing performances of its actors, rather than studio-recording the tracks on a later date.

"I thought singing live was the best idea ever," Seyfried admitted in a 2023 interview with Vanity Fair. "I knew I wasn't where I wanted to be vocally because I had quit singing for many years." The actress was aware that singing live required some additional attributes. "I needed stamina, I needed strength. I needed to be able to sing in real-time — I was pretty weak," she said. "It's my one regret. I wish I could do it all over again."

Jessica Brown Findlay's Albatross regret

Best recognized for her placement in "Downton Abbey," Jessica Brown Findlay made a name for herself on the long-running series, despite only appearing in three seasons. However, the actress has done alright for herself after choosing to walk away from the franchise, landing some substantial roles, including a lead part in Netflix's "Castlevania." Unfortunately, Findlay does regret one scene in her career, and it has to do with exposing it all for her big-screen debut.

Before she was changing the tone of "Downton Abbey," Findley had her breakout role in 2011's "Albatross" alongside Sebastian Koch and Felicity Jones. Sadly, she has since looked back at her topless scene with much remorse. "To be honest, 'Albatross' was naivete and not knowing that I could say no," Findlay admitted in an interview with Radio Times (via Us Magazine). "I had no idea what was going to happen and thought I was going to be shot from behind." Although the actress later did another short nude scene in "Labyrinth" she does not enjoy the exposure. "I think it's awful that women get so criticized about their bodies," adding, "it's not something I would do again."

Roger Moore was feuding with his James Bond love interest before intimate scene

Although he may have been the third actor to portray British superspy, James Bond, Roger Moore may have the most celebrated run as 007. Appearing as the agent in seven separate films, including fan favorites such as "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Octopussy," Moore is often credited as saving the Bond franchise and making it the popular series it is today. And while the actor enjoyed his time as Bond, he does regret his behavior before a very intimate scene in his final outing.

"A View to Kill" was the 14th James Bond movie, featuring Christopher Walken as the villain and the eccentric singer, Grace Jones, as the unforgettable May Day. Unfortunately, as Roger Moore depicts in his memoirs (via Express), his relationship with the new Bond girl was tumultuous. "Every day in her dressing room she played very loud rock music that made the walls shake," stated Moore. "An afternoon nap was out of the question. I did ask her several times to turn it down, to no avail."

Things got out of hand from there. "One day I snapped. I marched into her room, yanked the plug out, then flung a chair at the wall. The dent is still there." Hilariously, after his explosion, the two performers were forced into their intimate sex scene, making for an awkward situation. "I slipped between the sheets. She slid in beside me, bringing with her an enormous black sex toy."

Ben Stiller wishes he had a body double for Along Came Polly

While many actresses have regretted baring it all for the sake of a movie, it is much rarer that a man has the same remorse — especially an actor better known for doing whatever it takes for a laugh. However, Ben Stiller, the comedian behind "Zoolander," "Night at the Museum," and the short-lived "Ben Stiller Show," has come out about his shame of showing his rear end in a 2004 romantic comedy.

"Along Came Polly" was unlike Stiller's previous filmography, which featured comedies like "Meet the Parents" and "Mystery Men." Starring alongside Jennifer Aniston, the romantically driven film involves Stiller's character reconnecting and falling in love with a former classmate. Yet, when the two connect for a romantic evening, Stiller was convinced to show his bare bottom.

"The scene was very quick to do. John [Hamburg] promised me that he would cut it out of the movie if it didn't get a laugh," Stiller revealed in a 2004 interview with BBC. "But to this day I still don't know if it gets a laugh because I've never stayed long enough to see it." Hilariously, it was only later that Stiller learned that his butt reveal was entirely unnecessary. "I could have had a double," he said. "But nobody told me that at the time."
