"Can you tell me about your worst regrets?" This is one of the most obvious questions a journalist can ask a performer, but the answer is frequently rather telling.

We all have disappointments, some major and some minor. Participating in the entertainment business puts you in the spotlight, and the pressure to maintain a certain image can result in tough choices as well as long-term consequences. In reality, almost every artist, no matter how talented they are or how excellent the level of project they generally sign on to, has expressed regret over a performance that didn't turn out as planned.

In retrospect, hindsight can be a tremendous pain in the neck. Just ask these Hollywood icons who wish they could go back in time and change some of their decisions.
