Video: Why 10 famous actors hate their iconic roles that viewers love
2023 Author: Richard Flannagan | [email protected]. Last modified: 2023-11-26 05:58
Actors are known to become famous for their talent and the roles they have played. A successful role in a successful film can raise an actor to the heights of fame, and therefore the images embodied on the screen in cult films are usually loved, and the memories of them are filled with warmth. Surprisingly, some artists literally hate their iconic roles.
At one time for Marlon Brando, the role of Stanley Kowalski in the film "A Streetcar Named Desire" became a landmark. Millions of women began to almost deify the actor after this work. Brando himself was extremely annoyed about this, because his hero was a scoundrel and a drunkard who did not hesitate to raise his hand against his wife. Subsequently, Brando admitted: his contempt for his own character was so great that it prevented him from getting used to the role, and as a result, he simply imitated guys like Stanley.
It's hard to imagine a better James Bond than Sean Connery. This image brought the actor worldwide fame, but became a complete disappointment for him. However, his dislike for the superhero is explained by the lack of mutual understanding and sympathy for the producers of "Bondiana", and the reason why he nevertheless agreed to shoot over and over again was a very substantial fee. In 1971, the actor decided to punish himself for the ongoing work on the series and gave all of his royalties to charity. At the same time, he once again angered the producers, who hated big gestures.
The actor showed complete solidarity with his colleague and even announced that he could once again star in the role of James Bond solely for the sake of a very high fee. Fortunately, unlike the same Sean Connery, he never said that he was ready to kill his hero if he had such an opportunity.
Christopher Plummer's character from The Sound of Music - Georg von Trapp, a retired officer and a single father - was neither a superhero nor a villain. But the actor could not come to terms with the fact that the film itself turned out to be too sour-sweet, like his character. And if we take into account the fact that the events in the picture are developing on the eve of World War II in Austria, then such a syrup seems completely inappropriate.
Many viewers will remember the actor for his role in the cult film by George Lucas "Star Wars". Guinness himself was ashamed of his character Obi-Wan Kenobi, because he, the actor of the Shakespeare theater and the winner of the Oscar for the role of Colonel Nicholson in the film "The Bridge on the River Kwai", had to utter very stupid remarks from the screen. He starred in Wars only to support Lucas, whose project was initially considered a failure.
Surprisingly, Woody Allen did not like his role as Isaac Davis in Manhattan, although he was not only an actor, but also a director and screenwriter of the film. Immediately after the end of filming, he was so disappointed in his creation that he even wanted to shoot another film for free, if only "Manhattan" did not reach the viewer. The director called the picture his personal fiasco and could not forgive himself in any way for allowing himself "self-confident preaching."
Who would have thought that the role of Rose DeWitt Bukater in the cult film "Titanic" would be the most disliked for the actress. She explains this attitude by her own "disgusting" acting and inconclusiveness on the screen. And she just hates the song My Heart Will Go On, recorded by Celine Dion specifically for the film. At the same time, the actress considers the picture itself to be her lucky ticket, because it was thanks to the "Titanic" that many doors opened for her in the world of cinema.
The role of the enamored vampire from "Twilight" made the actor famous and became the most unloved in Pattinson's entire career. Glory desperately interfered with his normal life, and he had to constantly resort to tricks to avoid meeting the paparazzi who were waiting for him at every corner. He even sighed with relief when he was no longer recognized on the streets. But, if in relation to his own popularity, Pattinson flirts a little, then he frankly does not like Edward Cullen. This character seems to him to be a frightening psychopath, and not at all the romantic hero that many see him as.
This is not to say that the actor treats his most famous character too badly, but still he wants to break out of the tenacious embrace of this image for a long time. It seems to him that he has long outgrown Harry Potter, but the audience still associates Radcliffe with him.
The whole world learned about this actress after the release of the series of films "Fifty Shades of Gray", where Dakota Johnson played Anastacia "Ana" Steele. And, if Dakota Johnson is proud of the film, then she frankly dislikes her heroine, which she has repeatedly said in an interview.
Surely, in every film there are shots that are remembered the most by the viewer. Especially when it comes to pictures that have become real hits. It seems that in such film masterpieces, each scene is thought out in advance and rehearsed a thousand times. But in the collaboration of talented directors with equally talented actors, there is always a place for improvisation. AND cult movie scenes sometimes appear completely by accident.
The acting profession is to skillfully transform into different roles, which are sometimes radically different from each other. But, unfortunately, sometimes one image is attached to the artist, which accompanies him from film to film. Directors invite actors to exactly those roles that correspond to their usual roles
Behind the scenes of the film "Formula of Love": Why the actors refused roles, and what the song "Uno Momento" was about
On June 17, the theater and film actress, People's Artist of Russia Alexandra Zakharova celebrates her 56th birthday. The springboard in her film career was the legendary film of her father, director Mark Zakharov - "The Formula of Love". Many believed that she became an actress only because of her family ties, but did not know that her father was always her most severe critic and doubted whether she would cope with the role. But those in whom the director did not doubt themselves stubbornly refused to shoot. The audience was also unaware of
It is known that in ancient times only men took part in theatrical performances, who had to play both male and female roles. However, even today, some actors have the experience of reincarnation. After filming, celebrities admit that it was difficult for them to play women, but interesting. The audience is watching with interest the wonderful transformation, noting how bizarre the actors look in an unusual role for themselves
The cards we are used to are usually very positive in nature - they depict something very beautiful or carry the most pleasant wishes. But there is another type of this type of printing - the Hate Mail cards of hatred, created by the London artist with the pseudonym Mr. Bingo
The history of cinematography is replete with cases when actors found themselves "at arm's length" from roles that later became cult. But for one reason or another, they refused to shoot. However, who knows, could they have made these roles as bright and successful
