Daniel Craig, James Bond Movies
Just weeks before the theatrical debut of Spectre, Daniel Craig made his true opinion on the James Bond movies known. The British star, who previously appeared in 2006's Casino Royale, 2008's Quantum of Solace, and 2012's Skyfall, told Time Out London in an October 2015 interview that he'd "rather break this glass and slash my wrists" than do another Bond movie in the immediate future. "No, not at the moment," he added. "Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on."

Halle Berry, Catwoman
Halle Berry took the stage at the 2004 Golden Raspberry Awards to accept the dubious honor of Worst Actress for her turn in Catwoman. The Oscar winner took the chance to poke fun at her own project, thanking Warner Bros. for putting her in a "piece of s---, godawful movie."

Jim Carrey, Kick-Ass 2
Jim Carrey spoke out against his own movie in June 2013. Six months after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the actor said the violence changed his view of the film, tweeting, "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence... My apologies to others [involved] with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart."

Ryan Phillippe, Most of his Filmography
"I've made 30-plus films over 20 years," Phillippe said in an October 2014 interview with the Los Angeles Times. "And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you’re an actor for hire." The star earned his first credit of his "30-plus films" for 1995's Crimson Tide, going on to appear in Cruel Intentions, Crash, and The Lincoln Lawyer, among others.

Channing Tatum, G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra
Channing Tatum hit the big screen as Duke in 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra, but admitted six years later that he was hardly happy with the end result. "I'll be honest. I f---ing hate that movie," Tatum told Howard Stern of the action flick. "I hate that movie... I was pushed into doing that movie... [After] Coach Carter, they signed me for a three-picture deal... The script wasn’t any good. I didn't want to do something that I thought was 1.) bad, and 2.) I just didn’t know if I wanted to be G.I. Joe."

Marlon Brando, The Freshman
The 1990 crime movie The Freshman is one of Marlon Brando's highest-rated projects to date, but ahead of the film's release, the acclaimed actor did not have high hopes for his movie or even his future. "It's horrible," he told a reporter from The Toronto Globe and Mail, the New York Times reported in 1990. "It's going to be a flop, but after this I'm retiring. I'm so fed up. This picture, except for the Canadian crew, was an extremely unpleasant experience. I wish I hadn't finished with a stinker."

Brad Pitt, The Devil's Own
Starring Brad Pitt and Harrison Ford with director Alan J. Pakula (All the President's Men) at the helm, 1997's The Devil's Own had all the makings of a blockbuster hit. The tide soon turned on the critically panned box office blunder, however, with Pitt along for the bashing. "We had no script. Well, we had a great script but it got tossed for various reasons," he told Newsweek in 1997. "To have to make something up as you go along – Jesus, what pressure! It was ridiculous. It was the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking – if you can even call it that – that I've ever seen. I couldn't believe it. I don't know why anyone would want to continue making that movie. We had nothing. The movie was the complete victim of this drowning studio head [Mark Canton] who said, 'I don't care. We're making it. I don't care what you have. Shoot something.'"

Katherine Heigl, Knocked Up
Katherine Heigl, who previously made headlines for her less than flattering words about Grey's Anatomy, dissed another one of her own projects in 2008. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the actress took on the comedy Knocked Up, telling the outlet that she thinks the movie is "a little sexist." She went on to add of the Judd Apatow flick, "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. I'm playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you're portraying women? Ninety-eight percent of the time it was an amazing experience, but it was hard for me to love the movie."

Charlize Theron, Reindeer Games
In February 2000, Reindeer Games hit theaters, making just $32 million at the international box office in the entirety of its theatrical run, and earning widely negative reviews from critics. The movie's star, Charlize Theron, acknowledged the blunder in a 2007 interview with Esquire. "Reindeer Games. That was a bad, bad, bad movie," she said. "But even though the movie might suck, I got to work with [director] John Frankenheimer. I wasn't lying to myself – that's why I did it."

Shia LaBeouf, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Shia LaBeouf has a habit of trashing his own projects, doing so with 2010's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, 2009's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Of the latter, he told LAT, "I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished... I think the audience is pretty intelligent. I think they know when you've made [a bad movie]... We [Harrison Ford and LaBeouf] had major discussions. He wasn't happy with it either. Look, the movie could have been updated. There was a reason it wasn't universally accepted."

Megan Fox, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Megan Fox famously feuded with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay, and went so far as to admit she didn't get the movie, even after filming wrapped. "I'm in the movie and I read the script and I watched the movie and I still didn't know what was happening," she said in an interview with CBS. "I think if you haven't read the script and you go and see it and understand it, you may be a genius. This is a movie for geniuses."

Mark Wahlberg, The Happening
While promoting his much better-received movie The Fighter in 2010, Mark Wahlberg took a swing at one of the earlier lines on his filmography. Speaking at a press conference about his costar Amy Adams, Wahlberg explained, "We had actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie, and it was a really bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet." He went on to name the movie, adding, "I don’t want to tell you what movie…all right, The Happening. F--- it. It is what it is. F---ing trees, man. The plants. F--- 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."

Bill Murray, Garfield: The Movie
Bill Murray signed on for 2004's Garfield: The Movie, but revealed in a 2014 Reddit chat that his involvement in the project was a bit of a mistake. "I had a hilarious experience with Garfield," he began. "I only read a few pages of it, and I kind of wanted to do a cartoon movie, because I had looked at the screenplay and it said 'Joel Cohen' on it. And I wasn't thinking clearly, but it was spelled Cohen, not Coen. I love the Coen brothers movies." The mix-up lead to the making of an "odd movie," which involved Murray rewriting his lines, asking "Who wrote this stuff?" and "Who edited this thing?," and dubbing the film "Fantastic Mr. Fox without the joy or the fun."
