It’s very often seen that a role propels an actor to fame and makes him well known for many generations. This sounds like the fulfilment of a dream since the actor could walk easily into auditions, remind directors of their previous body of work and grab the next role. However, this isn’t always the case. Would you believe it if I told you that some actors detest the fact that they are famous for particular roles! The fact that they are remembered because of that particular role is met by umbrage. Actually, the actors are afraid of being typecast and feel that the chances of displaying their best becomes minimised. Quite clearly this leads to frustration. We have here a list of a few child actors who are living proof of the same. Whereas, there are many actors who are still known for their iconic roles and benefit financially from the roles they detest till date.
5. Megan Fox
This hot actress has featured in a couple of films and TV shows including Holiday In The Sun and Hope And Faith. What’s more is that she was also a part of the first Transformers movies which was produced by Michael Bay. Furthermore, she was candid enough to express her distaste for the movie even though it was this particular film which won her lots of attention in Hollywood. According to her, the movie wasn’t “really about acting” but about running, screaming or a mix of both. She is also known to have called Michael Bay a madman. Now, that’s something!
4. Christian Bale
This dude faced a lot of flak after he lost his temper on a movie set some years back. He doesn’t have a lot of complaints about the roles he has chosen and is also quite pleased with his performance in American Psycho. In fact, he doesn’t have any negative comment about his appearance in the Batman trilogy either. However, his role as Jack Kelly in the musical Newsies at 17 is disliked by him. He states that he wanted the audience to take him seriously and therefore, he felt that a being a part of musical show wouldn’t be good for his status. He was dramatic enough to have added that “time healed the wounds”. Now that certainly doesn’t sound like music to my ears.
