Actors and actresses go through quite a process before deciding on what acting roles to take. When big stars attach their name to a project, it instantly drives anticipation, excitement and a much higher level of expectations. For one reason or another, some films have turned into disappointments for the stars who then refuse to promote the movie, or worse, publicly slam it. For some of these stars it easy to understand why the stars turned their backs on it because of a poor script or it bombed at the box office, for others it was personal. From known divas to the nicest in Hollywood, many have not held back their true feelings about some of their projects, resulting in a lot of public bashing.
11. Mark Wahlberg
After the hate and numerous Razzie awards, most would think that the one film Mark Wahlberg has shown disdain for would be Transformers: Age of Extinction, but that isn’t the case. At a press conference for his film The Fighter in 2010, two years after the box office flop The Happening came out, Wahlberg discussed working with his Fighter co-star Amy Adams, who had been in talks to star in the disaster film as well, and ended up slamming his older film. “[We were] having lunch before to talk about another move and it was a bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet. And then I was still able to… I don’t want to tell you what movie…alright ‘The Happening.’ F–k it. It is what it is. F–king trees, man. The plants. F–k 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.”
