** Regarding Disney's ''Star Wars'' films, many fans are of the opinion that ''Film/RogueOne'' is superior to the sequel trilogy. Of course, ''Rogue One'' was basically a side project intended to tide fans over between ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' and ''Film/TheLastJedi''.

* Doris Day didn't think highly of her now most famous song, the Oscar-winning "Que Sera Sera". After she recorded the single, she proclaimed, "That's the last time you'll ever hear that song." She didn't even consider it the best of her two new songs from ''Film/TheManWhoKnewTooMuch''. Instead, she picked, "We'll Love Again", which viewers can barely hear over the rescue of Day's onscreen son.

* Sir Creator/AlecGuinness had a long and varied career, first on stage where he held his own against Creator/LaurenceOlivier, then in a film career filled with tour de force performances that culminated in his own personal favorite, '''Adolf Hitler''' in ''The Last Ten Days'' (a proto-''Film/{{Downfall}}'', if you will). So what's he best known for? [[Franchise/StarWars A sci-fi quickie]] [[OldShame he lambasted as "fairy-tale rubbish".]]

* An episode of ''Series/{{QI}}'' brought up C.B. Fry, an ancestor of Creator/StephenFry's and a successful turn of the century British sportsman. He represented England in football and cricket, equalled the world long-jump record in 1893, and reportedly was offered -- and refused -- the throne of Albania following UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. He could also jump onto a mantlepiece backwards without losing his balance. Guess which one, much to Stephen Fry's irritation, was the only thing that anyone on the panel for that episode wanted to talk about? This does give pause for wonder as to what he expected, however, seeing as the panel was composed largely of comedians and aside from the mantel-jumping, C.B's other cited achievements, remarkable though they may have been, weren't exactly the stuff of potential hilarity.

* Creator/MarkTwain waffled between saying that his favorite of his works was ''Literature/HuckleberryFinn'', which has come to be his most respected novel, and ''Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc'', which few have even heard of.

* Creator/MarkTwain waffled between saying that his favorite of his works was ''Literature/HuckleberryFinn'', which has come to be his most respected novel, and ''Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc'', which few have even heard of. At one point, he claimed, "I like ''Joan of Arc'' best of all my books; and it is the best; I know it perfectly well. And besides, it furnished me seven times the pleasure afforded me by any of the others; twelve years of preparation, and two years of writing. The others needed no preparation and got none."

** This arguably applies to the whole of Lovecraft's work: While he's considered to be one of the greatest American horror writers, he considered himself to be mediocre at best.

* Ryan Sohmer made a name for himself with the... [[LoveItOrHateIt divisive]] ''Webcomic/LeastICouldDo''. Then, he decided to do a little side project [[AffectionateParody lovingly spoofing]] two things he enjoyed: ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' and ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. With a more likeable protagonist, a cool supporting cast, a good MythArc, some GrowingTheBeard and a [[EnsembleDarkhorse certain]] HeroicComedicSociopath warlock, ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' grew to vastly eclipse ''Least I Could Do'' in popularity and [[WinTheCrowd acclaim]]. Sohmer himself began to eventually view LFG as his magnum opus, as well.

** "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E2CapeFeare Cape Feare]]" was an episode none of the creators felt very confident about; they couldn't come up with enough material for it and had to pad it out (including giving it a long CouchGag). It's regarded as one of the funniest episodes of the series, and particular acclaim is lavished on the [[OverlyLongGag "Sideshow Bob steps on rakes" sequence]], which was originally added [[{{Padding}} solely to pad the runtime.]]

* In contrast with his successors Creator/DavidTennant, Creator/MattSmith and the concurrent doctor Creator/PeterCapaldi, Creator/ChristopherEccleston is not particularly fond of ''Series/DoctorWho'' and reportedly said that he didn't enjoy playing the main character yet the Ninth Doctor remains his most famous role.

To be fair, he has said that his displeasure was more due to friction with the show's producers behind the scenes, rather than any issues with the part itself.
