A list of celebrities apologizing for their bad movies includes Brad Pitt on “The Devil’s Own”, Mark Wahlberg dissing “The Happening”, and Sylvester Stallone calling “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot” one of the worst films in the entire solar system.
It takes a lot to admit when you’re wrong. But when the entire world sees your screw-ups, at some point you pretty much have to fess up. Which is why usually years later actors will often admit they made a bad movie.
Here are five examples:
Brad Pitt played an IRA terrorist in the 1997 movie “The Devil’s Own”. He later called it, quote, “the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking, if you can even call it that, that I’ve ever seen.”
James Franco had a very simple take on “Your Highness” . . . quote, “It sucks. You can’t get around that.”
Mark Wahlberg thought the premise of “The Happening” was as ridiculous as the rest of us did . . . quote, “[Effing] trees, man. The plants. [Eff] it.”
“Red Sonja” was Brigitte Nielsen’s big break. But it was almost Arnold Schwarzenegger’s downfall. He calls it, quote, “the worst movie I have ever made.”
But Sylvester Stallone can one-up that. He called “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot”, quote, “maybe one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including alien productions we’ve never seen.”
