* KnowNothingKnowItAll: He boasted that he never read a ''Fantastic Four'' comic or seen a ''Star Wars'' film despite being cast as Reed Richards and auditioning for the part of Han Solo in ''Film/Solo'', basically stating that such films were beneath an actor of his caliber. This did ''not'' go over well with fans, who saw him as ignorant and arrogant if he considered not doing even basic research for his roles beneath him.
