1. Ben Affleck

2. Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl wasn't exactly a big fan of her 2007 film, Knocked Up. She called it "a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days."

3. Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey
Jim Carrey regretted the 2010 film Kick-Ass because of the violence. Before the release of the film, he tweeted "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence."

4. George Clooney

George Clooney wasn't happy with Batman & Robin at all. He was quoted saying, “With hindsight, it’s easy to look back at this and go, ‘Woah, that was really ****, and I was really bad in it!'"

5. Robert Pattinson

Despite its popularity, there are certainly plenty of people who opening hate on the Twilight Series. One of those people? Robert Pattinson.

6. Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba hated Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer so much that she almost quit acting because of it. Can you blame her?

7. Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx
Jamie Foxx didn't like promoting the film, Stealth, because he knew that well, the film was pretty bad. "Sometimes you do a movie and you have to go promote it, so on Stealth I was like, ‘Yeah, this is the greatest.’ And people would see me after seeing the movie and say, ‘I can’t believe you lied to me like that.'" Foxx said.

8. Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage
Nicolas Cage flat-out didn't want anyone to see his film, Dying in the Light. He, along with Anton Yelchin, Paul Schrader, and Nicolas Winding Refn, took photos of themselves wearing shirts with their non-disparagement agreement. A picture says a thousand words, right?

9. Michelle Pfeiffer

Remember Grease 2? Yeah, so does Michelle Pfeiffer. She was quoted saying, "I hated that film with a vengeance and could not believe how bad it was. At the time I was young and didn't know any better."

10. Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg didn't think The Happening was very good. At all. "It is what it is. F*cking trees, man. The plants. F*ck it. You can’t blame me for not wanting to try to play a science teacher. At least I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook," he said.

11. Colin Farrell

Colin Farrell
The 2006 re-make of Miami Vice wasn't all that great, and Colin Farrell agrees."Miami Vice? I didn't like it much," he said.

12. Halle Berry

Halle Berry went so far as to accept the Razzie Award for Worst Actress for Catwoman. Here's what she said when she accepted the award: ""First of all I want to thank Warner Brothers. Thank you for putting me in a piece of sh*t, God awful movie. It was just what my career needed."

13. Richard Gere

Even though it's the film he might be best known for, Richard Gere wasn't exactly a fan of Pretty Woman. He called it a "silly rom-com" and didn't like the way it portrayed men on Wall Street. "It made those guys seem dashing, which was wrong," he said.

14. James Franco

James Franco was simple and to the point when asked about his film, You Highness. "Your Highness? That movie sucks. You can't get around that," he said.

15. Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt was brutally honest about his feelings toward the 1997 film, The Devil's Own. "It was the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking -- if you can even call it that," he said. He also siad that he tried to walk away "when there was a week before shooting and we had 20 pages of dogsh*t."

16. Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum was not thrilled about G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. He told Howard Stern, "Look, I’ll be honest, I f****** hate that movie," and said that he was pushed into doing the 2009 film.

17. Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron was definitely not a fan of her 2000 film, Reindeer Games. She was quoted saying, "That was a bad, bad, bad movie."

18. Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis has several of his past films that he wished he hadn't done. He was quoted saying, About a dozen. I'd love to strike them off the list."

19. Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig never wants to play James Bond again. Like, ever. So much said, that he said he'd "rather break this glass and slash [his] own wrists" than to do it again.

20. Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzeneggar thinks Red Sonja is so bad, he's used it as a punishment. He was quoted saying, "It's the worst film I have ever made. When my kids get out of line, they're sent to their rooms and forced to watch Red Sonja 10 times. I never had too much trouble with them."

21. Shia LaBeouf

We all know Shia LaBeouf from the Transformers films, but by the time Revenge of the Fallen was made, he was over it. "I wasn't impressed with what we did," he said. "There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone."

22. Matthew Goode

Matthew Goode
Remember that movie Leap Year? Matthew Goode didn't take the role because he thought it was a good film. He was quoted saying, "The main reason I took it - so that I could come home at the weekends. It wasn't because of the script, trust me. Do I feel I let myself down? No. Was it a bad job? Yes, it was. But, you know, I had a nice time and I got paid."
