* ''Anyone'' involved with ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial'' feels this way about it, and as a result it only aired once, on TV, and hasn't seen the light of day since (not counting the [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes tapes]], mind you). Creator/HarrisonFord will completely deny the TV special's existence if you let him (which he infamously tried to do on [[http://www.dump.com/conanford/ The Conan O'Brien Show]]), and Creator/MarkHamill has gone on record claiming if he had the time and resources he would hunt down and destroy every last copy. If you're smart, you won't even [[BerserkButton mention]] it to Creator/GeorgeLucas, [[MisBlamed even though he wasn't directly involved in it]].
* Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio and Creator/TobeyMaguire sued to prevent the release of ''Don's Plum'' and won a partial success; the film can't be shown commercially in the United States or Canada.
* Creator/TomHanks feels this way about his film debut in a horror flick called ''He Knows You're Alone''. He also poked fun at ''Film/TheTerminal'' while hosting ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''.
** Hanks also feels this way about ''Film/BachelorParty'', ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'', and pretty much every other comedy film made during his "starving artist" phase of the '80s that isn't ''Film/{{Splash}}''. There's a reason TomHanksSyndrome is named for him.
** When asked in an interview what film he wished he could remove from his resume, his response was ''TheManWithOneRedShoe''.
* Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger's first movie, ''Hercules Goes Bananas'', [=AKA=] ''Film/HerculesInNewYork'', in which he appeared under the name of "Arnold Strong" and his voice was dubbed over. According to an old interview with Arnie, both were the result of ExecutiveMeddling. The film was so bad its rights were sold on '''eBay'''.
** Arnold has also mentioned that when his children would misbehave, he used to punish them by making them watch the ''Film/RedSonja'' film (in which he was a main character).
** As the Governator, he [[https://twitter.com/#!/Schwarzenegger/status/19303039793 threatened]] to force the legislature of California to watch ''Film/JingleAllTheWay'' 13 times if they couldn't come up with a budget.
** Speaking of der brawny man, take a look at the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcfI0gf9oDc Japanese commercials]] he did. He was apparently ashamed of them ''before'' he even made them: rumor has it part of the agreement for him to do them was that they ''never aired in the west''. Silly Ahnuld, you can't hide from the Internet!
* Although it's hard to believe now since the film is considered a classic, Creator/HarrisonFord had nothing but contempt for ''Film/BladeRunner'' for years -- presumably due to not getting along with director Creator/RidleyScott while filming and the fact that [[ExecutiveMeddling the studio forced him]] to record a terrible voiceover and film a new, happy ending. He's since "made peace with ''Blade Runner''" (in his words), which probably had a lot to do with the "Director's Cut" and "Final Cut" versions of the film, which got rid of the voiceover and restored the original ending.
* For a long time, Creator/TimCurry had pulled out all the stops to disassociate himself with Dr. Frank-N-Furter and ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', including gaining weight to escape the attention he had gotten from the role. In more recent years, though, he has become more comfortable with being linked to Frank-N-Furter.
** Though this was not due to the movie itself so much as the rather [[StalkerWithACrush creepy level of devotion]] some fans showed towards him.
* SylvesterStallone was in at least one softcore porn movie before he became beloved as Franchise/{{Rocky}} called ''Party at Kitty and Stud's''. It was re-released after the movie, re-edited and retitled ''The Italian Stallion''. He's so ashamed of it that he was willing to pay $100,000 to even block its release.
** Reports are that Stallone's management contacted numerous adult video stores and offered ridiculous amounts of money for their copies of the film.
** Stallone has also commented on ''Film/StopOrMyMomWillShoot'' as follows: "[[HyperboleAndAHalf Maybe one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including alien productions we’ve never seen]]. A flatworm could write a better script than ''Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot''. In some countries – China, I believe – running ''Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot'' once a week on government television has lowered the birth rate to zero."
** Stallone also deeply regrets ''Rhinestone'', though he did enjoy working with Dolly Parton.
** Same goes for ''Escape to Victory'': he enjoyed meeting Pelé (yes, [[TheBeautifulGame that one]]), but would like to erase the film from his memory.
* Creator/JackieChan was in a racy SexComedy in China called ''All In The Family'' long before he became famous.
** In his autobiography, he also expresses this attitude about his early American films ''The Big Brawl'' and ''TheProtector'', the latter of which had him swear gratitously and featured full-frontal nudity (Chan later re-shot new fight sequences and cut out the nudity and some of the violence for the film's Hong Kong release). He's also not particularly fond of the [[BruceLeeClone Bruceploitation]] films he made under {{Jerkass}} {{Triad}}-affiliated director Lo Wei, who [[ItWillNeverCatchOn tried to squash Jackie's desire to do action comedies]].
** He also bashed ''Film/RushHour'' and its sequels, stating that he [[MoneyDearBoy only did them because of the huge salary he was offered]].
* Creator/ChevyChase and Creator/DanAykroyd have these in the form of ''Cops And Robbersons'' and ''My Stepmother is an Alien'', respectively.
** Considering Chevy complained about the working conditions of ''SnowDay'' on ''The Rosie O'Donnell Show'', he isn't fond of that movie either.
** Creator/ChevyChase also made fun of ''Film/NothingButTrouble'' while promoting The Chevy Chase Show.
* Creator/KevinCostner's OldShame isn't ''Film/ThePostman'' -- or even ''Film/{{Waterworld}}'' -- it's a gem called ''Sizzle Beach USA''.
* Creator/BenAffleck's OldShame isn't starring in ''Film/{{Gigli}}'' -- it's directing a short film called ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a]] [[LongTitle Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal at]] {{Creator/Disney}}''. That said, he isn't fond of ''Film/{{Gigli}}'' either. On the season 38 finale of ''SaturdayNightLive'', Affleck appeared in an "HBO First Look" sketch about Iran making a film based on ''Argo''. Affleck states that the only reason he starred in it was so he can be in a movie that was worse than ''Gigli''.
* The MarxBrothers' first movie ever, ''Humor Risk'', is a cobbled-together silent mishmash of their vaudeville routines. Groucho apparently hated it so much that he burned it after viewing. At any rate, it doesn't exist any more.
* This is reportedly the case for MatthewMcConaughey and ''Film/TexasChainsawMassacreTheNextGeneration'', which also starred ReneeZellweger. They were both struggling actors at the time and needed the cash, but [=McConaughey=] was reportedly so embarrassed at having appeared in the film he attempted to block its release.
** In the same franchise, Dennis Hopper hated ''Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre2'' but admitted that he enjoyed his time on the set.
* Creator/RobinWilliams' first movie was an extremely un-PC 1977 sketch comedy film called ''Can I Do It 'Till I Need Glasses?''. Notably, his scenes were cut out before the film's first release; but just before ''Popeye'' came out, they were restored, it was re-released, and he was promoted as the star despite only having two scenes. He reportedly sued for wrongfully using his name and image, and subsequent video releases had him cut out again. It is now available on DVD uncut.
** Speaking of ''{{Film/Popeye}}''...
* Howard Hughes felt very guilty over his decision to film ''Film/TheConqueror'' miles away from the Nevada test site where nuclear devices are tested. It is believed that the location had dangerous material in the air that led to ''many'' of the crews' deaths, including JohnWayne. The film was poorly acted and was considered one of the worst films ever made. It is also believed that Hughes had watched this film ''endlessly'' on television during the last few years of his life (possibly due to his SuperOCD).
* PaulNewman's acting debut was in a historical epic, called ''The Silver Chalice'', which was a total commercial and critical failure. Years later the film was scheduled to run several nights on a Los Angeles TV station, and Newman spent $1200 on black-bordered newspaper ads reading "Paul Newman apologizes every night this week–Channel 9."
** He also admitted that ''Film/WhenTimeRanOut'' was another misstep in his career. When asked by Larry King on what was the worst film he ever did, Newman referred to it as "that volcano movie".
* Rob Morrow and JohnnyDepp apparently swore a pact to eradicate every copy of ''Private Resort'' (1985) from the face of the planet. Given that it was given a DVD release, it's clear that they have not yet succeeded in their quest.
* Creator/GeorgeLucas publically disowned ''Film/HowardTheDuck''. So did Creator/JohnBarry. As did just everybody that worked on it, save for Lea Thompson.
* Both director Tinto Brass and writer turned politician Creator/GoreVidal would like to forget about the horror that was ''Caligula''. In fact, pretty much anyone who was involved with that production (except Creator/HelenMirren and ''Penthouse'' publisher and ''Caligula'' producer [[http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/2005/02/guccione200502?currentPage=all Bob Guccione]]) would like to forget all about it.
* Creator/StanleyKubrick was embarrassed about his first feature film, ''Fear and Desire''; he called it "a bumbling amateur film exercise" and tried to obtain all known prints in order to prevent it from ever being seen again.
* Creator/QuentinTarantino doesn't like to acknowledge his directorial debut, a low budget comedy titled ''My Best Friend's Birthday''. In the publicity for ''Kill Bill'', that movie was referred to as Tarantino's fourth film, making the disavowal of ''My Best Friend's Birthday'' official.
* Jason Segel revealed in interviews that the Dracula puppet musical his character is writing in ''Film/ForgettingSarahMarshall'' is, in fact, based on a ''real'' Dracula musical which he began writing in his youth, and the song he sings in the karaoke bar is a real song from that musical. He claims to have played a demo tape for Judd Apatow, whose only response was "You can never let anyone hear this tape." [[http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=102232289 Listen for yourselves.]]
* In 1980, following the success rival gag magazine ''National Lampoon'' had had with ''Film/AnimalHouse'', William M. Gaines, founder and then-publisher of ''Magazine/{{Mad}}'', allowed the magazine's name to be used in ''MAD Magazine Presents: Up the Academy''. Gaines, upon the film's release, was so disgusted with the finished product (which included the non-ironic use of racist jokes, as well as coarse language and sexual content Gaines would never allow to be published in his magazine) that he paid $50,000 to have all references to the Magazine removed, including a statue of Alfred E. Neuman that was prominently featured in the academy square. Gaines even parodied the film in his magazine as ''[[http://technicolordreams70.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/mad_throw_up_the_academy-12.jpg Mad Magazine Resents Throw Up the Academy]]''. The spoof lasts just two pages before ending with a series of memos between Gaines and the editors (whose names are intentionally scribbled out) agreeing just to stop the article, even though they had only covered the first twenty minutes of the film.
* Creator/JamesCameron's first credited directing gig was ''Film/PiranhaPartTwoTheSpawning'' (which he only got after the original director was fired), although it's not clear how much of the finished product Cameron really created. It's alleged that at one point he even tried to break into the studio to either salvage or destroy the film. Eventually Cameron developed a sense of humor about it, having been quoted as saying it's "the [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative finest flying-piranha movie ever made]]." He also credits the film for helping him hone the puppetry that would be needed for the Facehuggers in ''Film/{{Aliens}}''.
* NaomiWatts has outright called some of her pre-''Film/MulhollandDrive'' films (which include the film adaptation of ''Film/TankGirl'' and ''Film/ChildrenOfTheCornIVTheGathering'') "pieces of shit". She also isn't fond of ''Diana'', [[http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/news/a561517/naomi-watts-diana-was-a-sinking-ship.html#~oAdfItpPz4JZHC dubbing the movie "a sinking ship."]]
* Going back to ''Franchise/ChildrenOfTheCorn'': Creator/EvaMendes' first role was in [[Film/ChildrenOfTheCornVFieldsOfTerror the fifth movie]]. She admits it's shameful.
* Creator/GeorgeClooney, Chris O'Donnell, JoelSchumacher, and Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger have all expressed disapointment in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''.
** Clooney even said in interviews that if anyone approaches him and says they saw ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' at a cinema, he will refund their ticket price from his own pocket. He's also said that he keeps a giant framed portrait of himself in the Batsuit in his house as a constant reminder not to let hubris and ego get the better of him.
** Joel Schumacher provided the DVD Commentary for the film. There's an awful lot of pauses and he ends the commentary 5 minutes before the credits roll. He sounds really embarrassed by this film.
* Roger Moore wasn't too pleased with his final ''Film/JamesBond'' film ''Film/AViewToAKill''. He said, "I was horrified on the last Bond I did. Whole slews of sequences where ChristopherWalken was machine-gunning hundreds of people. I said 'That wasn't Bond, those weren't Bond films.' It stopped being what they were all about. You didn't dwell on the blood and the brains spewing all over the place." His use of the plural "those weren't Bond films" suggests he also disowns other Bond films of his, though he didn't specify which.
** On the subject of Film/JamesBond, SeanConnery has publicly expressed being ashamed of how in ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' everything hinged on Bond being able to get into the pants of the villain's top henchwoman.
*** Connery is more ashamed of ''Film/{{Zardoz}}'', which he said he only starred in as an attempt to break away from the ''Film/JamesBond'' image, and ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', which he hated so much that he retired from making movies altogether.
* The Music/WeirdAlYankovic movie ''Film/{{UHF}}'' is a touchy subject for Michael Richards, who played [[EnsembleDarkhorse Stanley the Janitor]]. However, he was a good enough sport to do the commentary on the DVD (though he only did commentary for about half an hour's worth of the film).
* Creator/ChristianBale has not been subtle about his [[http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20054053,00.html dislike]] for ''{{Newsies}}'', which he starred in back in 1992, although he acknowledges the cult audience the film has.
* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Yeardley Smith]] is still extremely embarrassed by ''Film/MaximumOverdrive''. So is Creator/StephenKing, who called the film a "moron movie." Thus far, it has remained his only attempt at directing.
** As far as the fans are concerned, the feeling is mutual. Smith's character was [[TheScrappy so]] [[TheLoad obnoxiously]] [[MostAnnoyingSound annoying]] that the fans ''reviled her''.
** She also isn't too keen on ''WesternAnimation/WereBackADinosaursStory'', which she only did to break away from the Lisa Simpson image. Hell, ''We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story'' was an OldShame for ''everyone'' who worked on it.
* ''Film/LeonardPart6'' was so bad, Creator/BillCosby himself told everyone to avoid seeing it, before it even hit theaters.
** It should be noted that "William H. Cosby Jr., Ed.D." has story credit, and that the movie is "A Sah Enterprises, Inc. Production"... and [[Creator/BillCosby guess whose company that is]].
* Aasif Mandvi regrets taking part in ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', and actually mocks the film from time to time on ''Series/TheDailyShow''.
** Dev Patel didn't care for the film either nor did one of the show's creators, Bryan Konietzko.
* Creator/JohnBarrowman in the epically painful ''Film/SharkAttack3Megalodon''. In an interview with Jonathan Ross, he renounced the entire script as bloody awful and admitted that his one most infamous line was actually [[ThrowItIn an attempt at easing one of the actresses' stress that the director left in]]. He didn't find this out until he was watching it later on with his ''young nieces and nephews.''
-->''I'm still feeling pretty wired. What do you say I... take you home and eat your pussy?''
* {{Creator/Disney}} does everything in its power to make people forget about ''Film/SongOfTheSouth'', due to its UnfortunateImplications. This has led to some AdaptationDisplacement for their [[DisneyThemeParks Splash Mountain]] ride, which uses the characters from the animated segments. "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah" falls into the same boat; Disney still uses the song, and most people know it, but they don't know where it comes from.
** For many years, Disney was also deeply ashamed of ''Film/TheBlackCauldron'', a film that performed so horribly upon release that it nearly killed their animation department; and that's not even getting into the troubled production that saw it go through multiple edits to make it more palatable for audiences unfamiliar with its source material. A VHS release of the film was not granted until 1998, a full ''thirteen years'' after the movie's original release, and this was only after considerable pressure from the film's growing fanbase. Even with this and an eventual DVD release in 2010, the film remains virtually unseen among the studio's vast array of merchandise.
* Creator/BillMurray [[http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/movie-talk-bill-murrays-garfield-good.html admitted]] that, [[BlatantLies on account of]] [[WildCardExcuse his mistaking of Joel Cohen]] (writer of ''Film/CheaperByTheDozen'' and ''Money Talks''[[note]]though in his defense he also worked on ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''[[/note]]) for [[Creator/TheCoenBrothers Joel Coen]] (writer of ''Film/TheBigLebowski'' and ''Film/{{Fargo}}''), he regrets lending his voice to the 2004 movie ''{{ComicStrip/Garfield}}''.
** ''Film/{{Zombieland}}'' makes this clear.
-->'''Wichita''': "Do you have any regrets?"
-->''[[AsHimself Bill Murray]]''': "... Film/{{Garfield}}, maybe."
* TimothyDalton has a doozy in the form of the 1978 film ''Film/{{Sextette}}'', in which he's paired up with an 84-year-old Mae West in a film which misguidedly treats her like she's still a {{Memetic Sex God}}dess. He even made fun of it on a talk show.
* Given her decade-plus long career as an extremely capable ActionGirl (''Film/TheFifthElement'', ''Film/{{Ultraviolet}}'', the ''Film/ResidentEvil'' films), MillaJovovich prefers people not think too hard about 1991's ''Return to TheBlueLagoon''. She also hated ''Ultraviolet''. Can you blame her?
* AmyAdams has gone on to disown ''CruelIntentions 2'' but likes to joke about making it on occasion.
* JamieLeeCurtis is on record describing 1999's ''Film/{{Virus}}'' as "an awful piece of shit".
* John Landis, as everyone knows, inserts the phrase "see you next Wednesday" in each of his films, often as the title of an imaginary movie. He explains that it's the title of a script he wrote in his youth which shall never see the light of day.
* Creator/JenniferAniston's turn in the low-budget horror schlockfest ''Film/{{Leprechaun}}''.
* In his first autobiography ''Lucky Man'', Creator/MichaelJFox looks back on ''Film/TeenWolf'' with a great deal of embarrassment. Hence explaining why he refused to do the sequel (which, curiously, neither star [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Jason Bateman]] nor scriptwriter [[Series/{{Heroes}} Tim Kring]] talks about much nowadays).
** Fox also isn't proud of most of the films he made after his Parkinson's diagnosis, because during that time his thinking was, "I'd better do as much movies as I can before I can no longer act", and started accepting roles for movies that, in the end, weren't very good.
* Creator/MishaCollins of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' fame has stated many times that he regrets his participation in ''Film/{{Karla}}'', the 2006 film based on real-life serial killers Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo. He has explained that he was unaware how infamous and emotionally relevant the cases were in Canada at the time (to the extent that in an extreme case of CaliforniaDoubling, the movie - although a Canadian production - had to be shot in the USA with an entirely American cast and crew (Laura Prepon played Karla) because NOBODY in the Canadian film industry wanted anything to do with it). He also states that the director of the film took things way too far and would compliment him after shooting particularly horrible rape scenes, saying "[[{{Squick}} That was]] ''[[{{Squick}} hot]].''" He ended up having a phone conversation with one of the victims who escaped, and now tells people not to watch the movie, especially when it comes up at fan conventions.
* ''Film/WildWildWest''. In a 2009 interview Creator/WillSmith apologized to Robert Conrad for making it.
** Creator/BarrySonnenfeld, Creator/KevinKline, Creator/SalmaHayek, and even the majority of people at Creator/WarnerBrothers regret doing the film as well. Hayek, in particular, felt she was being underused and Kline felt he was too good of an actor to make the movie.
* Creator/JackBenny turned ''The Horn Blows At Midnight'' into a running joke.
* Creator/WhoopiGoldberg disowned 1987's ''The Telephone'' (she even tried to keep it from being released). As one American critic noted, this was the same year as ''Burglar'' and ''Fatal Beauty''. She was also ashamed by starring in ''Film/TheodoreRex'', which Goldberg tried to walk out of the project after reading the script, but was forced to stay on after its studio threatened her with a lawsuit.
* While promoting ''Film/ComingToAmerica'', Creator/EddieMurphy 'fessed up to hating ''Best Defense'' and ''Film/TheGoldenChild''; since he later refused to do any promotion for ''Film/TheAdventuresOfPlutoNash'', it's safe to say he has no warm feelings for this one either (a view shared by Alec Baldwin, who took his name off the credits). He also hates ''[[Film/BeverlyHillsCop Beverly Hills Cop III]]'' as he felt it ruined the character of Axel Foley and he admitted that money was his main motivation for doing that film in the first place. In fact, he's spoken negatively about all his pre-''[[Film/TheNuttyProfessor Nutty Professor]]'' films from the 90s. Besides ''Beverly Hills Cop III'', he has disowned ''Film/VampireInBrooklyn'', also an OldShame of director Creator/WesCraven. Murphy also admitted by regretting he did ''Film/HolyMan'' when he appeared on a talk show.
* Michael Madsen [[http://www.metro.co.uk/fame/interviews/article.html?in_article_id=1020&in_page_id=11 hasn't got good things to say about]] ''SpeciesII'' ([[Film/{{Species}} the original]], on the other hand, he says it's one of the few actual good movies he worked on).
** He also hated ''Film/BloodRayne''. Can you blame him?
* It shouldn't be surprising that DonaldPleasence once declared ''Film/PumaMan'' the worst movie he ever took part in.
* Creator/AndyLau publicly apologized for making the movie ''Switch'', and [[SelfDeprecation stated that his biggest flaw is his inability to discern whether or not a script is crappy]].
* Whenever anyone asked Bob Hoskins what his biggest regret about his film career was, he replied, "''Film/SuperMarioBros''" without hesitation. He was quoted as saying the production "was a hellish nightmare" and the ControlFreak directors were "arrogant and fuckin' idiots".
** He probably felt that being given a role in ''Parting Shots'' wasn't a career highlight either. Hell, '''anyone''' who was involved in ''Parting Shots''.
** JohnLeguizamo wasn't fond of the movie either. He also wasn't fond of ''The Pest''.
** That Dennis Hopper (who admitted [[MoneyDearBoy the paycheck]] was his only motivation) also had bad things to say about the film, its [[PrimaDonnaDirector directors]] and the TroubledProduction, is not surprising.
* Aaron Eckhart once encountered a fan ''buying a copy'' of ''Film/TheCore'' at a video store, and attempted to talk the guy into spending his money on something else.
* Mel Gibson was so ashamed of ''The Million Dollar Hotel'' that he fought to prevent it from being released to theaters in the U.S.
** He also wasn't too keen on his role in ''The River'', which he felt he was miscast for.
* After almost twenty years and several [[Film/{{Se7en}} much]] [[Film/TheGame much]] [[Film/FightClub much]] [[Film/{{Zodiac}} much]] [[TheCuriousCaseOfBenjaminButton much]] [[Film/TheSocialNetwork MUCH]] better films later, Creator/DavidFincher still hates talking about ''Film/{{Alien 3}}''.
* For the longest time, Creator/LeonardNimoy refused to even mention his participation in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'', to the consternation of fans. His complete disavowal of all things Transformers-related finally cracked when he was convinced to voice Sentinel Prime in ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon''.
** Orson Welles wasn't terribly fond of the movie either, having done it [[MoneyDearBoy for the money]]. When asked what role he played in the film, he said he was "[[MerchandiseDriven a toy]] who does horrible things to other toys."
* MarkWahlberg sees his earlier films and his singing career as this. Looking back, he found this era of his life rather shameful. (It even leads to a SelfDeprecation ActorAllusion moment in ''Rock Star''.)
** He later admits that his work on ''Film/TheHappening'' wasn't even that good as well.
** Wahlberg also said that ''Film/TheTruthAboutCharlie'' was the worst film he had ever done.
* Music/DavidBowie and Creator/JenniferConnelly aren't too big of fans of ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''. Both of them even get uncomfortable (in Bowie's case) or embarrassed (in Connelly's case) when their children are watching the film.
** Bowie also regrets 1978's ''Just a Gigolo'', his second major film, simply for its poor quality. In a 1980 interview with ''New Music Express'', he said "Oh well, we've all got to do one [bad movie] and hopefully I've done mine now."
* [[DawsonsCreek Michelle Williams]] has disowned ''Film/{{Species}}'' (her second film) due to the torment that she got from people at her school over playing a character that becomes a giant cocoon. She also hates her first film, ''Timemaster'' (even calling it ''Timewaster'' on set, which other cast members also took to calling it).
* Jason Flemyng [[http://www.metro.co.uk/film/868870-x-mens-jason-flemyng-i-think-january-jones-is-fantastic#ixzz1cEDFnBYy has said]] the only film he'd erase from his filmography is ''SeedOfChucky'' - "I was dressed as Santa, getting killed by a doll, on a set in Romania, thinking: ‘Where did it go wrong?’"
* If you meet [[MyNameIsEarl Jaime Pressly]], don't bring up ''Piñata: Survival Island''. Just ''don't.''
* Mickey Rourke admitted that ''Film/PassionPlay'' wasn't a very good film, though he did nevertheless praise MeganFox's acting.
** He also hated ''A Prayer For The Dying'' (as did director Mike Hodges; both have disowned this).
** Though definitely not as widely-panned as the films mentioned above, he is not fond of his experience working on ''Film/IronMan2'' either. He even publicly bashed the film while promoting ''Film/{{Immortals}}''.
* Both Creator/JackBlack and Creator/BenStiller have both publicly apologized for starring in ''Film/{{Envy}}''.
* On the topic of Creator/JackBlack, it would be a good idea to not mention ''The Neverending Story III'', as doing so will probably result in a punch to the face.
* KateMulgrew recently expressed regret for providing her voice for the recently produced documentary centered on Geocentricism entitled ''The Principle''. As she doesn't believe in said topic, she stated in her public statement that she was a voice-for-hire, and a misinformed one at that.
* Her ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' co-star Taylor Schilling would very much appreciate it if you didn't mention ''Film/AtlasShrugged: Part I''.
* Purportedly, mentioning the ''[[BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure Bill and Ted]]'' movies to Creator/KeanuReeves annoyed him greatly. Before ''Film/JohnnyMnemonic'' and ''Film/TheMatrix'' he was desperately trying to be remembered as ''anybody'', but Ted.
** Probably no longer an issue, since he and Alex Winter are doing a third ''Bill & Ted'' flick (and now Reeves is better remembered as Neo than Ted, anyway).
** Reeves also doesn't like ''Film/TheWatcher'', saying the reason why he did that film was that a friend of his forged a signature on a contract, and wasn't allowed to bash the movie while promoting it until after its release.
* After ''Film/WhatEverHappenedToBabyJane'' Joan Crawford starred in a string of B-horror films where she clearly kept [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously taking them too seriously]]. Eventually after her film career was over she admitted how dreadful they all were.
** For that matter, legend has it that a young Joan Crawford did porn before making it as a Hollywood A-lister.
*** Much of that "legend" is courtesy of the same source that also painted her as a crazed closet lesbian and murderer - her adopted daughter Christina.
* Music/{{Madonna}} would just as soon people forgot her first movie, ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Certain_Sacrifice A Certain Sacrifice]].''
* [[AmericanPie Shannon]] [[ScaryMovie Elizabeth]] would probably prefer people forget about the time she was ''raped by a snowman'' during her small part in ''Film/JackFrost1997''.
* [[Series/TheCarolBurnettShow Carol Burnett]] disliked her performance as HookerWithAHeartOfGold Mollie Malloy in ''Film/TheFrontPage'' so much that years later, when she was a passenger on a flight that had ''Film/TheFrontPage'' as its in-flight movie, at the film's end she ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny stood up and apologized to the passengers for what they had just witnessed]]''.
* When ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' was re-released in 3D in 2012, both KateWinslet and LeonardoDiCaprio [[http://thecelebritycafe.com/feature/2012/04/kate-winslet-and-leonardo-dicaprio-are-both-embarrassed-seeing-themselves-jack-and-r expressed embarrassment]] at seeing their younger selves on the big screen again.
* Joseph Mazzello, who played Tim in ''Film/JurassicPark'', apparently gets rather annoyed if one mentions to him, according to David Fincher who directed him in ''Film/TheSocialNetwork''.
* Jake Lloyd isn't fond of his role as Anakin Skywalker in ''[[ThePhantomMenace Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace]]'', in no small part due to it [[NeverLiveItDown being the reason he was bullied throughout middle school and high school.]] He even burned all of his ''StarWars'' memorabilia and did not watch a single ''Star Wars'' film again for some time, stating it was too creepy to watch them again. However, a later interview between him and a ''StarWars'' fan site has shown him to have mellowed out since and has confirmed that he does not hate ''StarWars'' after all that. Terence Stamp didn't like working on the film either.
* Creator/SarahMichelleGellar doesn't like ''Simply Irresistible'' any more than most other people who've seen it.
* Both Creator/ChrisColumbus and Creator/DarylHannah have less than warm feelings about 1984's ''Reckless'' (which he wrote and she starred in). Hannah is also probably very glad the box office returns for ''The Clan Of The Cave Bear'' meant films of Jean M. Auel's other books about Ayla were out of the question.
** If the box office hadn't sealed the fate of future movies, the fact that Auel (who was a consultant on the film and hated the finished result) sued the filmmakers and ''[[CreatorBacklash bought back the movie rights to the books]]'' did.
* Apparently, TomCruise doesn't like ''Film/{{Legend}}'' much.
* According to interviews, Creator/ChristopherLee actually apologized to director Creator/JoeDante while they were making ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch'' for his participation in the sequel to the director's ''Film/TheHowling'', ''The Howling 2: Your Sister is A Werewolf'' (aka ''The Howling 2: Stirba-Werewolf Bitch'').
* Margot Kidder didn't realize that ''Tribulation'' (the third movie in the LeftBehind knockoff ''Film/{{Apocalypse}}'' series) was Christian propaganda until she was nearly through filming. Apparently (and understandably) she didn't understand the plot until the end, when the Anti-Christ goes on a MotiveRant. Margot Kidder is an avowed atheist. People coming up to her and praising her work in said movie tends to be a BerserkButton for her.
* Piece of advice: don't mention ''Film/TheWizard'' to [[Music/RiloKiley Jenny Lewis]].
* According to Creator/RogerEbert's memoir ''Life Itself'', Chevy Chase mentioned how he didn't think too fondly of ''Film/ThreeAmigos'' when the two had a conversation backstage on ''TheTonightShow'' (Ebert gave the film a negative review and it was Chase's job to defend it on air).
* Creator/ColinFirth isn't too fond of the films ''Playmaker'' and ''Trauma''. He only made the former to be closer to his son (who was living in Los Angeles at the time) and with the latter, he was so embarrassed to be involved with the film that he attended a screening in secret just to see how bad it was (he was later relieved to find himself being the only one in the theater watching the film).
* What do Creator/HarlanEllison and Tony Bennett have in common? They both would rather not talk about ''Film/TheOscar'' (the former's only movie credit, the latter's only movie as an actor).
* Not only did Creator/RosannaArquette's RomanceOnTheSet of ''The Big Blue'' (with her co-star, not with director Luc Besson despite his track record) help end her marriage to [[Film/TheHungerGames James]] [[Film/BatmanBegins Newton]] [[TheSixthSense Howard]], she also hated the finished product (typical comment about the movie: "I see that scene and I want to vomit").
* For Creator/JimCarrey it was ironically also his StarMakingRole, ''Film/AceVentura''. Carrey was displeased with the sequel causing him to swear off ever doing a sequel for any of his characters (although he has now signed on to do a sequel to Dumb and Dumber) This had an arguably lasting impact on his career as well since this role is seen as the reason why [[AwardSnub he's yet to get nominated for an Oscar.]]
* Anthony Perkins was regretful of ''PsychoIII,'' which he directed and starred in. He also proclaimed that he made some terrible movies (pre and post ''Film/{{Psycho}}''), although kept mum about which ones he considered bad.
* Tuesday Weld hates ''Pretty Poison,'' a 1968 film that had a very limited release due to some ExecutiveMeddling. The irony, though, is that ''Pretty Poison'' is regarded as an underrated gem and cult classic, and many (modern critics and fans alike) find it to be one of her best performances that [[AwardSnub deserved an Oscar nom.]]
* Creator/BruceCampbell has loads of them, but he's at least open about them. Hell, he's been known to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCCr0C-5Hxw encourage audience participation]] when asked what his worst film is.
* Creator/AdamSandler's official website's filmography page doesn't include ''Film/GoingOverboard'', and when it airs on pay cable Sandler's name isn't even mentioned in the guide listings for the film.
* Creator/DenisLeary said this about the ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' franchise on his Website/{{Twitter}}-[[https://twitter.com/denisleary/status/243391718605590529 "National debt now equals $160,000 per American family. Do you know what that means? Time for ''Ice Age 5, 6 and 7''."]] He also isn't fond of ''Film/OperationDumboDrop'', ''Film/DemolitionMan'', or ''Two If By Sea''.
** While promoting ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' on ''TheDailyShow'' in 2012, he jokingly referred to ''Ice Age: Continental Drift'' as "[[FranchiseZombie Ice Age 12]]".
** Denis, like Creator/JohnCusack, has said that he doesn't like the majority of his movies. He actually said once that he's made "10 good movies and 30 bad ones".
** In his book ''Why We Suck'', he provides a side-by-side photo of himself and Creator/WillemDafoe, explaining that people seem to think they look alike. He goes on to comment "I apologize if every time I hear 'You were great in ''{{Film/Spider-Man}}'', [[note]] The first one, starring Tobey [=MacGuire=]. The book was written before his appearance in the reboot film[[/note]] he has to hear 'Why the fuck did you do ''Film/OperationDumboDrop''?"
* Creator/JohnCusack has said he's only made "10 good movies".
** Even within the category of movies not on that list, ''Film/ConAir'' is in a league of its own. He refuses to be interviewed about it.
** Cusack apparently saw ''Film/BetterOffDead'' while working on another Savage Steve Holland movie, ''Film/OneCrazySummer'', and wasn't pleased. He was reportedly furious with Holland, although other cast and crew members showed him the movie was getting favorable reviews.
* Quoth Creator/JaneaneGarofalo on ''Film/TheTruthAboutCatsAndDogs'':
-->I think it's soft and corny, and the soundtrack makes you want to puke, and everybody's dressed in Banana Republic clothing. The original script and the original intent was very different than what it wound up being when it became a studio commercial film. It was originally supposed to be a small-budget independent film where there would be much more complexity to all the characters, and [[spoiler: Abby ''(Garofalo's character)'' and the guy don't wind up together at the end.]]
* Creator/BradPitt is not a big fan of appearing in ''Film/TheDevilsOwn'', calling it "the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking - if you can even call it that - that I've ever seen."
** He also wishes he could wipe off the teen horror film ''Cutting Class'' off his resume.
* Creator/CharlizeTheron has less than fond memories of starring in ''Film/ReindeerGames'', as she calls it a "bad bad movie" (and considering some of the movies on her CV, that's saying something), but admits that she enjoyed working with its director Creator/JohnFrankenheimer, citing it as the sole reason why she did that film.
** And like NaomiWatts and Creator/EvaMendes above, Charlize has a ''Franchise/ChildrenOfTheCorn'' sequel on her CV (''Film/ChildrenOfTheCornIIIUrbanHarvest''). Do we have to tell you what she thinks of it?
* Creator/RolandEmmerich and Creator/DeanDevlin look back at ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'' with a great deal of regret, with them citing that their lack of research, the short time in which the film had to be completed in, and ExecutiveMeddling (the studio's refusal to test screen it) as factors that may have negatively affected the quality of the final product.
** MatthewBroderick doesn't like the film either.
* Martin Vidnovic, who voiced The King in the animated version of ''WesternAnimation/TheKingAndI'', admits it was pretty bad.
* Jamie Foxx has said that his time working on ''Film/{{Stealth}}'' wasn't even that amazing, but admits he was glad he didn't have to lie and say it was good while making this movie.
* Colin Farrell apparently does not like the film version of ''Film/MiamiVice''. He also made fun of ''Film/{{Alexander}}'' while on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''.
* Creator/SeanPenn did not enjoy working on ''Shanghai Surprise'' opposite then-wife Music/{{Madonna}}, saying that he made a vow to himself never to discuss that movie for the rest of his life.
* And now our Creator/MichaelCaine section:
** Sir Michael says that the three worst films he has ever made are ''The Magus'', ''Film/TheSwarm'' and ''Ashanti''.
** He also didn't like ''Film/JawsTheRevenge'' as well. Caine claims that he has never seen the film, and by all accounts it was terrible; but he adds that he has seen [[MoneyDearBoy the house the film paid for, and thought it was terrific.]] He also regrets being in the Bahamas shooting it instead of picking up his Oscar for ''Film/HannahAndHerSisters''.
*** Lorraine Gary, who played Ellen Brody, has expressed regrets for reprising her role.
** Mr. Micklewhite, in addition, ''utterly despises'' his work in ''Film/OnDeadlyGround'' - and the film's star/director Creator/StevenSeagal, who loved to talk down to the ''knighted'' Oscar-winning actor during production.
* JimCummings has stated at conventions that he does ''not'' think very highly of ''Film/TheGarbagePailKidsMovie'', one of his first films.
* Creator/JessicaAlba also gets a section to herself:
** She's on record as disliking several of her films, such as ''Film/GoodLuckChuck'' (not without good reason).
** In an interview with the British magazine ''Arena'' promoting ''Film/FantasticFour'' she badmouthed two of her pre-''Series/DarkAngel'' movies, ''Paranoid'' and ''The Sleeping Dictionary'' - ''and'' her performances in them.
** She isn't a big fan of ''Film/IntoTheBlue'' either, mostly because her character was rewritten during filming. Also scenes were shot with her stunt double in a bikini behind her back, forcing her to spend the majority of the movie without much clothes on.
* Creator/StevenSpielberg admitted that updating ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' for its 20th anniversary back in 2002 was pretty regretful, which includes scenes of the titular character in CGI and the policemen's shotguns being replaced with walkie-talkies. This can easily explain why recent airings of the film no longer show the scenes with the CGI E.T. and leave the shotguns intact, which can be the same for the recent 30th anniversary DVD and Blu-Ray release.
** The reason why he decided to edit the shotguns was because he believed they were too frightening for children, especially since he already became a father himself. He regretted making those changes when he noticed they were lampooned in the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Free Hat."
** Creator/StevenSpielberg is also ashamed of ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'', saying that his marriage to Kate Capshaw was the only good thing he got out of it.
*** Capshaw, an outspoken feminist, is ashamed of her role as [[DamselScrappy Willie]] as well.
** Spielberg is also ashamed of ''NineteenFortyOne'' to such a degree that in the original trailers for ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', it was the only Spielberg movie up to that point that wasn't mentioned.
* Creator/WoodyAllen didn't care for working on ''WesternAnimation/{{Antz}}''.
** And he doesn't get people's love for ''Film/AnnieHall'' at all, only being able to see how much it doesn't live up to what he really wanted it to be.
* Gwyneth Paltrow has said that she hates ''View from the Top'', calling it terrible. She doesn't care for ''Film/ShallowHal'' either.
** ''Film/ShallowHal'' is also an old shame for Jack Black. He said that he signed onto it because he wanted to make a film with the Farrelly Brothers but it wasn't what he expected it to be which made him feel like he sold out.
* Both JuliaRoberts and Nick Nolte reveal their hatred for working on ''I Love Trouble'', calling it the worst of their careers. Roberts also said that Nolte was the worst actor she had ever worked with.
* SandraBullock would probably like to forget her part in ''Fire in the Amazon'' ever existed. She also calls ''Film/Speed2CruiseControl'' "the biggest piece of crap" ever made. (In fact, while promoting said movie a fan told her she was looking forward to it and she replied "Well, as long as you don't expect too much...")
** Though oddly enough, she doesn't seem to regret ''All About Steve'' (despite accepting her Razzie Award on the film, she felt that the committee didn't see the film and gave everyone in attendance a DVD copy to let them judge if she was deserving or not).
* Matthew Goode dislikes his role in ''Film/LeapYear'', saying the only reason he did this movie was that he can visit his family more often.
** Goode also didn't like his part in ''Film/BridesheadRevisited'' as well.
* Music/IceCube admitted in an interview that ''Film/GhostsOfMars'' was the worst film he ever appeared in, claiming it was unwatchable in many ways, and said that the film's director Creator/JohnCarpenter really let him and his fellow co-stars down with the special effects, saying that it had looked like something out of a film from 1979.
** He also isn't fond of the family movies he did like ''Film/AreWeThereYet'' or ''Film/TheLongshots'' and says he only did them because it was hard for him to find acting jobs.
* Ray Liotta may not want to speak about his first film role in ''Film/TheLonelyLady''.
* You might think the words "shame" and PamelaAnderson don't go together. ''Snapdragon'' and ''Raw Justice'' prove you're wrong.
* Gerry Anderson was not proud of ''Crossroads To Crime'' (his only big-screen movie as a director).
* Creator/ChrisFarley hated ''Film/BeverlyHillsNinja'' and swore to never make another film like it again (sadly, AuthorExistenceFailure never allowed him to play the PlayingAgainstType roles he sought).
* According to Peter Farrelly, most of the cast of ''{{Film/Movie 43}}'' tried to get out of it.
** HughJackman, in an "[[https://screen.yahoo.com/hugh-jackman-interviews-himself-future-140216700.html interview with his past self]]":
-->'''1999 Jackman''': Is there an embarrassing movie I should avoid?\\
'''2014 Jackman''': When they come to you with a movie where you have testicles around your neck, with an ensemble of the funniest movies around, don't believe them. You might keep the testicles - they are funny to show in parties - but pass on the movie!
* Ashton Kutcher [[http://www.esquire.com/features/ashton-kutcher-photos-0313-3#ixzz2L6Tkaf6j admitted in Esquire]] that he made some poor choices.
-->"I know exactly what films I've done that fucking suck donkey. And I know the ones that are good, that people like. And I know it not because of the box office, because the box office is not going to tell you the truth. I know it because I have friends that don't hold back. They don't depend on me for money or employment. They're just friends. Friends tell the truth."
* One of the animators is ashamed of ''Foodfight'' and even said:
-->"I actually worked on this movie for a bit. It was one of my first jobs in the industry and let me tell you, if you think it was a train wreck viewing, you should have seen how terrible it was to work on it. The sad truth is there were plenty of talented people working there. many of those people moved on to major studios in both film, TV and games. The bottom line is the director, Larry Kasanoff is a talent-less, classless scumbag that should be banned from Hollywood until the end of time. All of the inappropriate innuendos are a direct product of his "creative hand". I cannot tell you how many times this moron derailed production with his brainless input. It literally has cost the studio millions of dollars. They eventually stepped in and removed him from the project. Unfortunately, that was a decade and millions of dollars late. I am so ashamed of this movie that I have completely left working there off of my resume. On behalf of the many artists that have had the dubious distinction of working on this dumpster fire, I apologize to all of humanity for our part in this."
** An animator for ''WesternAnimation/TheKingAndI'' has also said they didn't care for much it as have the animators of ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot'' including Lauren Faust.
* Raquel Welch made fun of ''Myra Breckinridge'' on a talk show (and on the film's ''DVDCommentary'', ruthlessly ripping into both it and her own acting).
* Linda Hamilton said in an interview that she thought her work in the film ''Shadow Conspiracy'' was "mediocre as hell", but admits that the movie was "really bad, really bad".
* Antonio Banderas wasn't proud of ''TheLegendOfZorro''.
* Creator/JohnCleese wasn't pleased with ''The Meaning Of Life''. He said "I always regarded that entire film as a bit of a cockup."
** The other Pythons are not too happy about it either. Terry Jones has said that the movie was one rewrite from being good, but by that point, everyone, Cleese in particular, just wanted to move on.
* Barry Humphries is embarrassed by ''Les Patterson Saves The World.''
* GuinevereTurner is ashamed of ''Film/BloodRayne''. She wasn't there on location to re-write the film. Uwe Boll decided to have only one draft of the script (and it shows). Guinevere saw the film in the cinema and she hated it.
* Richard O'Brien disowned ''Film/ShockTreatment''.
* OlderThanTelevision: Brigitte Helm, who is best remembered for playing Maria and the robot in Fritz Lang's silent film epic ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'', refused to talk about the movie in her later years, going as far as to deny that she was in it. This may have to do with the fact that the robot costume was extremely uncomfortable for her to wear, causing her several injuries.
* Subversion: You'd think Creator/GeorgeClooney would be embarrassed by ''Film/ReturnOfTheKillerTomatoes'', but he's if not proud of his role, is more than willing to discuss it whenever it's brought up, as he loved working with [[Series/TheAddamsFamily John Astin]], and by most accounts it was a fun shoot.
* His friend Creator/CindyCrawford is similarly, surprisingly, not all that ashamed of her ill-fated ''Fair Game''.
* Jack Coleman of ''{{Series/Heroes}}'' fame wrote about his Old Shames in [[http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/blogs/guest/the-hrg-files/the-hrg-files-volume-4.php this blog post]].
* While promoting ''Film/IronMan3'' on [[TheBBC Radio 2]], BenKingsley didn't like it when a listener mentioned meeting him while filming ''The 5th Monkey'', because he thought the film was dreadful (as do most people who've seen it).
* Ray Romano didn't care for ''Film/WelcomeToMooseport''.
* HarryShearer would rather people not know that he was a 'writer' for the movie ''Club Paradise'' (of which he claims the title was the only thing he wrote that got used in the final product). The pseudonym "Ed Roboto" is used instead of his name in the credits.
* JamieBamber clearly feels this way about the film ''Ghost Rig'', given his hilarious reaction in a YouTube clip--when an autograph seeker mentions having watched it, he buries his face in his hands and moans "Oh ''God''. Not that one." Even being reminded that it's where he met his wife doesn't change his opinion--"it was ''terrible''!" Despite the fan's repeated protests that it wasn't ''that'' bad, he insists on apologizing to her for having had to endure the experience of watching the movie and promises not to be in anything that bad ever again.
* Music/KylieMinogue has admitted that appearing in ''Film/BioDome'' was her worst career move, and said that it is the only thing she has done in her professional life that her father ridicules her for.
* KalPenn called ''Film/SonOfTheMask'' a terrible movie while promoting ''Film/TheNamesake''. It didn't help that they forced him to do an Indian accent.
* JamesFranco called ''Film/YourHighness'' a piece of shit in an interview. On his ComedyCentral roast, he likened it to the roast, saying it's "homophobic, vulgar, has untalented actors, is only a big deal to 15 year olds, and won't be remembered in three months."
** He also doesn't like ''Film/{{Annapolis}}'' very much either.
* Illusionist David Copperfield is on record as wanting "to rent every copy of ''Film/TerrorTrain'' and never return them."
* Creator/HughGrant has admitted that he regretted doing the film ''Film/NineMonths'', because it was distributed by 20thCenturyFox, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch after Grant brought down News of the World to scandal. He said that he would never work with the studio ever again.
* Jerry Lewis resented having ever worked on ''Film/TheDayTheClownCried'', and the film has since become infamous for never having been seen by more than half a dozen people.
* TomHardy has repeatedly said that ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' (and more specifically, the fact that it was a critical and commercial flop) was the worst thing that ever happened to him, and nearly killed his career before it got off the ground. To this day, he still refuses to talk about ''Nemesis'' in any significant detail.
** The entire [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]] cast, especially Gates [=McFadden=], Marina Sirtis, and Creator/LeVarBurton (who'd been turned down as its director), have also spoken negatively about ''Nemesis''. Though Sirtis also said that ''Nemesis'' wasn't as bad as ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'', claiming she fell asleep during its premiere.
* Natalie Wood hated ''Film/{{Meteor}}'', along with most of the cast involved with the film.
* Creator/BrentSpiner sarcastically called ''Film/TheMasterOfDisguise'' a "classic" on Twitter.
** Dino Stamtopolous, who helped produce the film, also regrets making it and blames Creator/AdamSandler for the final product.
** Creator/DanaCarvey has admitted that he doesn't care for most of the movies he's done (surprisingly, ''The Master of Disguise'' isn't one of them, maybe 'cause he wrote it..)
* Faye Dunaway genuinely thought she would win an Oscar for ''Literature/MommieDearest''. Needless to say she was not pleased with the ParodyRetcon and has been known to stop interviews if asked about the film.
* Creator/SethRogen called ''Film/TheGreenHornet'' a nightmare. The film's producer Neal H. Moritz and director Creator/MichelGondry didn't like it either.
* While promoting ''Film/ManOfSteel'', Creator/MichaelShannon said he wished he'd never been in ''Film/KangarooJack'', and found the kangaroo rapping and beatboxing very scary.
* Jason Alexander publicly apologized for his work on ''[[Film/RockyAndBullwinkle The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle]]'' while appearing on Howard Stern's radio show.
* Victoria Jackson (best remembered for playing DumbBlonde characters on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'') appeared naked in ''Casual Sex?'' (with Lea Thompson). Jackson is a conservative Christian. [[CaptainObvious She is not very proud of being in that movie.]]
* After the overwhelmingly negative reception of ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'', director Creator/MichaelBay himself publicly apologized for the film, admitting it was not his best work and even calling it "crap". He has expressed disappointment that he didn't have more time to put together a better movie in the aftermath of the Writers' Guild Strike of 2007-2008.
** Writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci also expressed regret in making the film as well as in the creation of the universally hated Autobot duo Skids and Mudflap.
** ShiaLaBeouf also has gone on to state that he was "unimpressed" with the movie.
** Megan Fox also didn't like the movie. Not to mention her feud with Michael Bay during filming.
* Hugo Weaving admits that he doesn't care for the whole franchise and pretty much phones in his performance whenever he does any of the movies.
* Shia La Beouf also didn't like ''WallStreetMoneyNeverSleeps'' or ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull''.
* Michael Beck blames ''Film/{{Xanadu}}'' for killing his career.
* Barry Gibb doesn't like Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
* Jon Stewart has made fun of Doogal on ''Series/TheDailyShow''.
** He's constantly poked fun at ''Film/DeathToSmoochy'' as well.
* MilaKunis is not proud of ''Film/SantaWithMuscles'' and ''Film/AmericanPsycho2AllAmericanGirl''.
* Ralph Bakshi is ashamed of ''Film/HeyGoodLooking'' and ''Film/CoolWorld''. The latter was ruined by executive meddling.
* Sam Raimi disowned ''Crimewave'' due the film's troubled production and it being recut by Columbia.
** He's also admitted ''Film/SpiderMan3'' was not very good. Part of the reason the franchise was [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan rebooted]] was because he demanded more lead time and creative control in order to make sure ''Spider-Man 4'' didn't have the same problems.
* Chevy Chase is also ashamed of his participation in ''CaddyshackII'', which he only took part in as Warner Brothers had pressured him and the other actors of the first movie into making a sequel. None of the others bowed to the pressure though, and Warner Brothers attempted to '''sue''' Rodney Dangerfield for refusing to participate after citing a lack of confidence in the script. When asked about it in a interview with David Letterman, his response was an apathetic "Yeah, Yeah I think I'm in that." Heck even his role in the film, he seems disinterested in being there.
** Harold Ramis, who wrote and produced the original ''Film/{{Caddyshack}}'' also hated the sequel; once again, he only participated after Warner Brothers continued to put pressure on him.
* Creator/ChristopherReeve was deeply ashamed of his last outing as the Man of Steel in ''Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace''. He declared the film to be "terrible" on the eve of its release, citing a haphazard scriptwriting process and the poor quality of the film's special effects.
** Co-star Jon Cryer also hated the film, going so far as to deem the film ''unfinished'' as a result of its ultra-low budget.
** Before ''Superman IV'', Christopher Reeve had felt so ashamed by ''Film/SupermanIII'' that he swore he'd never play Superman again. It took lots of persuasion to bring Reeve back for ''Superman IV'' which, as mentioned above, sadly didn't turn out much better.
* StanLee has disowned ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'', despite the fact that he only had a [[CreatorCameo cameo]] in it. Creator/BenAffleck also calls it the one movie he actually regrets (largely because he loves the original comics and is disappointed it turned out the way it did).
* In an interview with DavidLetterman in 1982, Creator/AndyKaufman admitted that he was ashamed to be in the 1981 film ''Film/{{Heartbeeps}}''.
* In response to a fan who mentioned watching ''Film/IKnowWhoKilledMe'' two times, one of Creator/LindsayLohan's posts on Twitter was "two times too many".
* Jamie Kennedy has admitted that he was personally affected by the negative critical response to ''Film/SonOfTheMask'', lamenting an apparent lack of control in any of the aspects regarding the film or his own involvement in it.
** Steven Wright also hated the film, it would be six years before he would act again.
* Creator/ForestWhitaker has publicly apologized for starring in ''Film/BattlefieldEarth''. Then again, JohnTravolta was probably the only one who didn't regret starring in it.
** Barry Pepper, who played Johnny, said that if he knew he'd win a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor, he would've accepted it in person.
** One of the two credited screenwriters has among other things, written an [[http://www.deadline.com/2010/03/battlefield-earth-scripter-pens-apology/ apology letter]] that ends with this:
-->Now, looking back at the movie with fresh eyes, I can’t help but be strangely proud of it. Because out of all the sucky movies, [[MedalOfDishonor mine is the suckiest]]. In the end, did Scientology get me laid? What do you think? No way do you get any action by boldly going up to a woman and proclaiming, “I wrote Battlefield Earth!” If anything, I’m trying to figure out a way to bottle it and use it as birth control. I’ll make a mint!
* Creator/KevinBacon mocked ''He Said, She Said'' on Howard Stern.
** Don't ask him about ''Film/{{Footloose}}'' either. He doesn't want to talk about. Or maybe not, [[AdamWesting as he hilariously spoofed Footloose]] when he appeared on ''[[Series/TheTonightShow The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon]]'' in March 2014.
* DenzelWashington wishes he had never done ''Heart Condition'', claiming that he was talked into making this movie by his agent and once it was slammed by critics and bombed horribly, Washington fired him shortly thereafter.
* RobSchneider said that he only did movies like ''The Reef'' because his friend works on them.
** He also didn't care for ''DeuceBigalowEuropeanGigolo''.
* Vanilla Ice doesn't care for ''Film/CoolAsIce''. Pretty much everyone involved, up to and including the director, has expressed regret over this film.
* RyanReynolds says he didn't have a good time making ''Film/GreenLantern'', and that he's unlikely to return for WB's proposed ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]]'' movie.
* Janet Leigh said she starred in ''Film/NightOfTheLepus'' because it was shot near her home, and meant less time away from her family, adding "I've forgotten as much as I could about that picture."
* Stars DanielCraig and RachelWeisz, and director Jim Sheridan disowned the finished product of ''Film/DreamHouse'', each of them not going out to promote the film after Sheridan clashed with the film's executive producer James G. Robinson throughout the production.
* Phoebe Cates refuses to talk about her role in the ''[[Film/TheBlueLagoon Blue Lagoon]]'' rip-off ''Paradise'' after she managed to bargain down the amount of nudity that the script called for, and was horrified to see that producers expanded the sex scenes that were additionally shot with body doubles.
* Vince Vaughn didn't go out to promote ''Film/FourChristmases'', after it was rumored in gossip columns and blogs that he and co-star ReeseWitherspoon did not get along throughout filming, plus he had to keep a low profile while the movie was in theaters.
* George A. Romero is not proud of his second film ''There's Always Vanilla'', he said at the time he wanted to do something other than horror, he considers it the worst movie he ever made and that his writer didn't know what he was doing.
* David Cross, who plays the main antagonist in the ''Alvin and the Chipmunks'' live-action movies, openly regrets his work on the third film ''Chipwrecked'', recalling it to have been a terribly "unpleasant experience" and one of the worst outings of his career.
** Cameron Richardson, who played the love interest Claire in the first film, refused to do the sequels because she disliked the first movie.
* Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, and Richard D. Zanuck didn't care for ''Neighbors'', mostly due to its post-production problems.
* Creator/JeffBridges admits he was underwhelmed by ''Film/{{RIPD}}'', stating that while he enjoyed making the film, he eventually disliked the finished product.
* Michael Chiklis apologized for ''Wired''.
* Alan Parker admitted he didn't want to direct ''PinkFloydTheWall''.
* Nicol Williamson did not have fun making ''Film/{{Spawn}}''.
* {{Cher}} says that ''Film/{{Burlesque}}'' was the worst film she had ever done, even criticizing her performance in that movie.
* Mikhail Baryshnikov hated filming ''Company Business'' so much, that he refused to go out and publicized the movie.
* Jeremy Irons doesn't care for ''Film/DungeonsAndDragons'' very much.
** He's also not fond of ''Damage'', saying he doesn't think the film's director Louis Malle writes upper class Englishmen very well.
* Most of the people who worked on ''Skidoo'' didn't like it. Otto Preminger and his family even refused to release it after its theatrical run.
* Alec Baldwin has disowned ''Film/RockOfAges'', calling it a "horrible movie", and stated he only did that film because he wanted to work with TomCruise.
* Pretty much most of the actors who did ''Film/{{Troll 2}}'' said that they were embarrassed by the movie when they first saw it yet have gotten over it as the years have gone by due to the cult following it's received. The only people who seem to always be proud of the movie are director Claudio Fragasso, his wife (who co-wrote the movie), and Margo Prey, who played the mom. Also Robert Ormsby, who played the Grandpa, said he likes bad movies so he was proud to see it turned out so bad.
* Mike Reiss regrets working on ''Film/AirplaneIITheSequel''.
* Creator/SandraBullock and sequels don't go together - she's 'fessed up to not liking ''Film/Speed2CruiseControl'' and ''[[MissCongeniality Miss Congeniality 2: Armed And Fabulous]]''.
