Channing Tatum - GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra
The film adaptation of the popular US comic series went the distance at the global box office, earning $302 million, but no amount of money could have convinced Tatum that he hadn't made a mistake by starring in the turkey.
Tatum claims he only took the role after being prodded into it by Paramount, with whom he had signed a three-film contract earlier in his career. "I f------ hate that movie," he said in a radio interview. "I hate that movie", adding that "the script wasn't any good".
George Clooney - Batman and Robin
Even now, 20 years later, Clooney makes a point of "always apologising for Batman and Robin", which he thought was so terrible it had killed off the franchise - until it was revived by Christopher Nolan a few years later. The saddest part? He genuinely thought it was a good idea at the time: "I thought at the time that this was going to be a very good career move. Um, it wasn't."
Halle Berry - Catwoman
The DC Universe fared even worse for Halle Berry, who, three years after collecting her Best Actress Oscar, picked up a Razzie for her efforts in the ill-fated Catwoman. She gamely turned up to the worst films award ceremony, though, and thanks Warner Bros "for casting me in this piece-of-s---, god-awful movie".
Robert Pattinson - The (entire) Twilight Saga
While Pattinson won the attentions of teenage Harry Potter fans after playing Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, it was landing the main part in the blockbusting Twilight Saga films that made him a Hollywood star.
As tragic vampire Edward, Pattinson gained some considerable body shimmer for the role, several million dollars, and a girlfriend in co-star Kristen Stewart, but he never became a Twi-hard in the process. "When I read it, it seems like a book that wasn't supposed to be published," he said of the series. He later admitted that the ending of the series was only bittersweet for the fans.
Christopher Plummer - The Sound of Music
The Sound of Music is an internationally beloved feel-good film, but Christopher Plummer was not a fan from the off. In 2011 he told The Hollywood Reporter that the movie gave him his most challenging role: "I think the part in The Sound of Music was the toughest. Because it was so awful and sentimental and gooey. You had to work terribly hard to try and infuse some miniscule bit of humor into it."
He reviles the movie so much that Plummer's even taken to calling it The Sound of Mucus.
Matt Damon - The Bourne Ultimatum
The Bourne Ultimatum went on to win three Oscars and give Damon his biggest box office earner at the time, but that doesn't mean he liked the third film in his action trilogy. Damon, who, let's not forget, wrote the Oscar-winning script for Good Will Hunting while he was still a student, took greatest umbrage with The Bourne Ultimatum's writer Tony Gilroy and his script.
"I don't blame Tony for taking a boatload of money and handing in what he handed in," Damon told GQ. "It's just that it was unreadable. I could put this thing up on eBay and it would be game over for that dude. It's terrible. It's really embarrassing. He was having a go, basically, and he took his money and left."
Ben Affleck - Daredevil
Affleck also won an Oscar for co-writing the script of Good Will Hunting, which was easy to forget during 2003, when he was best known for getting prematurely engaged to Jennifer Lopez and appearing in the video for her hit song Jenny From the Block. He also starred in the catastrophically bad Daredevil.
Affleck disliked the superhero film so much that it spurred him on to star as Batman in Zack Snyder's marginally better Batman Vs Superman. In 2016 he admitted that his motivation for taking the role was "I wanted for once to get one of these movies and do it right – to do a good version. I hate Daredevil so much."
Kate Winslet - Titanic
James Cameron's juggernaut romance, Titanic, made "Kate from Reading" a star. But the film's success has resulted in overkill for Winslet, who says that even the film's soundtrack makes her feel a little seasick: "I feel like throwing up when I hear it. No, I shouldn't say that. No, actually, I do feel like throwing up," she told MTV in 2012.
Marlon Brando - The Freshman
The Hollywood great had little to say about Frank Oz's 1990 comedy, but what he did wasn't good, dismissing it as "lousy".
The Freshman, however, was far better received by critics, making it a unique offering: usually when an actor hates a film, the critics agree with them.
Nicole Kidman - Australia
Kidman is famed for not watching the films she appears in, but she did see Baz Luhrmann's big-budget blockbuster Australia, and she wasn't too happy.
She told a Sydney radio station: "I can't look at this movie and be proud of what I've done… It's just impossible for me to connect to it emotionally."
