In an interview with Vogue, Portman said that she was “completely consumed” by the role and that she “didn’t sleep for 10 days”.

She also suffered from bruises and scratches from all the rehearsals and filming. Despite the difficulties, Portman’s performance was praised by critics and audiences alike, and she won multiple awards for her work in the film. Even though she hated the experience, Natalie Portman’s role in Black Swan was one of her most profitable.


Michael B. Jordan: Black Panther

Michael B. Jordan is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. He’s appeared in films like Black Panther, Creed, and Chronicle. But there’s one role he hates more than any other: Michael B. Jordan in Black Panther. “It was the most profitable movie I’ve ever been a part of,” he told Variety. “But it was also the least creatively fulfilling.”

Jordan has spoken candidly about the pressure he felt to live up to the expectations of fans who saw him as a role model. Despite his misgivings about Black Panther, Jordan says he’s proud of the film and grateful for the opportunity to inspire young people of color.


Janet Leigh: Psycho

The film Psycho was a massive success, but Leigh hated the experience of making it. Hitchcock was notoriously demanding, and he put Leigh through hell on set. She was required to film scenes in which she was partially nude, and she was even sprayed with cold water to create the illusion of sweat.

Her fear and vulnerability are palpable, and she completely sells Marion’s transformation from a confident woman to a terror-stricken victim. It’s no wonder Hitchcock considered her one of his favorite actresses. Janet Leigh may have hated making Psycho, but audiences will always remember her incredible performance in the movie.


Christina Applegate: Dead to Me

Christina Applegate’s biggest role to date has been in the dark comedy series Dead to Me, in which she plays a grieving widow. In a recent interview, Applegate revealed that she hates the role. “It’s so hard,” she said. “I’m constantly crying, and I’m just so exhausted all the time.”

Applegate also spoke about how she struggles to connect with her character, who is “constantly angry and sad.” Despite her negative feelings towards the role, Applegate said that she is grateful for the opportunity to play such a complex character. Even though she may not enjoy every role she takes on, she always gives 110%.


Nicole Beharie: Sleepy Hollow

Nicole Beharie gave an outstanding performance in the role of Lt. Abbie Mills in Sleepy Hollow. Unfortunately, the actress reportedly grew to despise the character and the show itself due to the toll it took on her personal life. Beharie was reportedly unhappy with the show’s demanding filming schedule and she also struggled with the notoriety that came with being a part of such a successful show.

The pressures of the role eventually became too much for Beharie, and she left the show after just three seasons. Despite her struggles, Beharie’s work on Sleepy Hollow is widely considered to be some of her best and she remains one of Hollywood’s most talented actresses.


Adrien Brody: The Painist

Adrien Brody is no stranger to complex, intense roles. But in a recent interview, Brody revealed that there’s one role he regrets taking: the lead in 2006’s King Kong. “It was a miserable experience,” said Brody of the film, which was plagued by production problems and went over budget.

Although King Kong was a box office success, grossing over $500 million worldwide, it was clear that Brody wasn’t happy with the final product. In fact, he’s said that he would “never” work with director Peter Jackson again. Despite his misgivings about the film, however, there’s no denying that Adrien Brody gave an unforgettable performance as Kong’s human companion, Ann Darrow.


Eddie Redmayne: The Danish Girl

Eddie Redmayne was initially reluctant to take on the role of Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl, due to the film’s controversial subject. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Oscar-winning actor revealed that he was “terrified” of playing a transgender woman, and initially turned down the role.

He worked closely with trans activists and consultants to ensure that his portrayal of Lili was respectful and accurate, and the resulting film was both a critical and commercial success. While Redmayne has said that he doesn’t “particularly enjoy” watching himself onscreen, he has no regrets about taking on the role of Lili Elbe.


Kate Winslet: The Reader

Kate Winslet is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and she has won an Academy Award for her role in The Reader. However, it has been reported that she hates the movie and regrets doing it. The reason for this is that she feels that the character she played was a victim and she didn’t like how the story made her look.

In addition, she has said that the movie was very sexually explicit and she was uncomfortable with that. Nevertheless, it is still one of the most successful movies of all time and Kate Winslet’s performance was praised by critics.


Idris Elba: The Wire

Idris Elba appeared in some of the most popular films and television shows of the past decade. However, Elba has also been outspoken about the roles that he has played, particularly those that he believes have been derogatory to his race. In an interview with Variety, Elba stated that he “felt sort of trapped” by The Wire, and that he “didn’t like the way we were portraying black men on TV.”

He also said that he was “uncomfortable” with the way his character was written, and that he felt like he was “playing a cliché.” It is clear that, even though he may not have enjoyed it, Idris Elba is more than capable of delivering a powerful and profitable performance.


Tom Selleck: Christopher Columbus: The Discovery

Tom Selleck starred in some of the biggest television shows of all time, including Magnum P.I., Friends, and Blue Bloods. But there’s one role that Tom hates more than any other: Christopher Columbus in the 1992 film Christopher Columbus: The Discovery. Tom has referred to the film as “a disaster” and “the worst experience of [his] professional life.”

Tom’s co-star, Ross von Tager, has also spoken out against the film, calling it “a career low point.” It’s clear that Tom regrets ever taking on the role of Christopher Columbus. However, it’s also clear that he doesn’t regret making a movie that was so profitable.


Robert De Niro: Righteous Kill

Robert De Niro is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and he has played some of the most iconic roles in film history. But there is one role that he reportedly hated: his turn as a dirty cop in 2008’s Righteous Kill. In an interview with Parade magazine, he said, “I wasn’t interested in that kind of movie at that time. It was just bad timing for me.”

Despite his misgivings about the role, De Niro gave a great performance in the film. But it’s clear that he would have preferred to take on a different kind of role at that point in his career.


Reggie Jean Page: Bridgerton

Reggie Jean Page hated his role in Bridgerton. He played Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings, a character who was supposed to be cold and aloof but instead Reggie found him to be boring. Reggie did not like the long hours on set and he was not a fan of the corset he had to wear.

In fact, Reggie only agreed to do the show because his agent told him it would be a huge success and make Reggie a lot of money. However, Reggie does not consider himself a successful actor because he did not enjoy the role that made him famous and wealthy. Reggie would rather be doing theater or independent films where he feels more creatively fulfilled.


Scarlett Johansson: Rub & Tug

Johansson recently found herself at the center of controversy when it was announced that she would be playing the lead role in Rub & Tug, a biopic about the transgender crime boss Dante “Tex” Gill. Some criticized the casting choice, arguing that it was inappropriate for a cisgender actress to play a transgender man. Johansson eventually decided to drop out of the project.

In a statement, she said, “I have great admiration and love for the trans community and am grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues.” By stepping away from this project, she has shown that she is committed to creating opportunities for transgender actors and telling their stories with sensitivity and respect.


Alex Wolff: Hereditary

Not only was the role emotionally demanding, but it also required Alex Wolff to be in some pretty intense scenes. In one particularly harrowing scene, Wolff had to crawl through a tiny space while covered in fake blood. It was so cramped that he could barely move, and the blood made it even more difficult to breathe.

Wolff did an amazing job in the role and Hereditary went on to become one of the most successful horror films of all time. However, Wolff has said that he would never do another film like it. In fact, he has said that he hated the experience so much that he would never do another horror film again.


Kyle Richards: Halloween

Kyle Richards starred in some of the biggest movies and TV shows, including “Halloween” and “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” But there’s one role that Kyle Richards hates more than any other: her iconic role as Laurie Strode in the “Halloween” franchise.

Kyle also said that she particularly hates the scene in which her character is chased by Michael Myers, because it’s so intense and scary. Despite her hatred for the role, Kyle has continued to play Laurie Strode in subsequent “Halloween” movies. And given her success in other roles, it’s clear that Kyle Richards is a very talented actress who can make even the most hated role seem easy.


Kim Cattrall: Sex and the City

Cattrall played Samantha Jones on Sex and the City for six seasons, and while the role made her a household name, she has always been clear that she did not enjoy playing the character. Cattrall has said that she found Samantha to be “crass” and “self-centered,” and that she struggled to connect with the character on a personal level.

As a result, Cattrall has always been vocal about her relief at finishing filming on Sex and the City. Despite her personal misgivings about Samantha Jones, though, there’s no denying that Kim Cattrall’s performance was a major reason for the show’s success.


Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio: The Abyss

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio’s most profitable role came in the form of The Abyss, a film that she infamously hated making. Directed by James Cameron, The Abyss was a critical and commercial success, earning over $100 million at the box office. However, the film’s shoot was notoriously difficult, with conditions often described as “torturous” by the cast and crew.

In an interview, Mastrantonio spoke about her experience on the film, saying “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life…I never want to work like that again.” Despite her negative experiences, Mastrantonio’s work in The Abyss is widely considered to be some of her best.


Dakota Johnson: Suspiria

Dakota Johnson has spoken out about her experience filming Suspiria, revealing that she “hated every minute” of it. In a recent interview, Johnson revealed that she found the experience of making Suspiria to be “exhausting” and “mentally and physically draining”. She also spoke about how difficult it was to film some of the more intense scenes, saying that they left her feeling “traumatized”.

Despite her struggles with the role, Johnson gave a commendable performance in Suspiria, which received critical acclaim. It is clear that she is a talented actress who is able to overcome even the most challenging roles.


Bob Hoskins: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Bob Hoskins didn’t mince words when it came to his feelings about his most famous role. “The worst thing I ever did was Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” he said in a 2012 interview. “It was a Nightmare. I should never have done it.”

He later said that he felt like “a competent actor surrounded by geniuses,” and that the constant motion capture work left him feeling “like a hamster on a wheel.” Despite his misgivings, Hoskins gave an iconic performance as the hard-boiled detective Eddie Valiant, helping to bring alive one of Hollywood’s most beloved characters.


Penn Badgley: You

Penn Badgley played the role of Joe Goldberg in the hit TV show “You.” The role made him a household name and catapulted him to Hollywood stardom. In an interview with Vulture, Badgley said that he found the character “repulsive” and that he struggled to understand why people were so fascinated by him.

He also said that he felt like he was “selling out” by taking the role, and that it wasn’t genuinely reflective of his interests or values. Despite his misgivings about the role, Badgley says that he knows it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and that he is grateful for the experiences and opportunities it has brought him.


Edward Norton: The Italian Job

Edward Norton is one of Hollywood’s most respected actors. So it may come as a surprise that he once turned down one of the most lucrative roles in recent memory. The part in question was in The Italian Job, a 2003 heist movie starring Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron. The movie was a box office hit, grossing over $100 million worldwide. But Edward Norton passed on the role, citing creative differences with the director.

In the end, Edward Norton made the right decision-he stuck to his principles and avoided being typecast in a blockbuster role. And while he may have lost out on a big payday, he maintained his integrity as an artist.

In conclusion, it is interesting to note that many of Hollywood’s biggest stars have detested the most profitable role in their career. While this may be due to a variety of reasons, it goes to show that money and success do not always equate to happiness.

What makes an individual happy may vary from person to person, so it is important for each individual to find what brings them fulfillment in life.
