It's easy forget that to actors, acting in movies is ultimately a job. Sometimes that means you end up taking on a role that you're not all that happy with because you need the money. We typically think of this happening with unknown actors, but it turns out plenty of the big ones have some regrets too. Here's just a few of them!

George Clooney - Batman & Robin

Warner Bros.

“I always apologize for Batman & Robin. Let me just say that I’d actually thought I’d actually destroyed the franchise until somebody else brought it back years later and changed it. I thought at the time that this was going to be a very good career move. Um, it wasn’t.”

Charlize Theron - Reindeer Games

Dimension

“That was a bad, bad, bad movie. But… I got to work with John Frankenheimer. I wasn’t lying to myself — that’s why I did it.”

Michelle Pfeiffer - Grease 2

Paramount

“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."

Sylvester Stallone - Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

Universal

“I made some truly awful movies. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot was the worst. If you ever want someone to confess to murder, just make him or her sit through that film. They will confess to anything after 15 minutes.”

Ben Affleck - Daredevil

Marvel

"The only movie I actually regret is Daredevil. It just kills me. I love that story, that character, and the fact that it got ****ed up the way it did stays with me."
