Everyone makes mistakes. That’s why we have erasers on pencils and “delete” buttons on our keyboards. However, when an actor does a role they regret, they can’t just go out and make their mistake go away. Their only hope is that the movie they’re in gets buried, but with so many streaming services, movie podcasts, and articles like this one, it’s very unlikely for that to occur. So far there is no time machine for Ryan Reynolds to unmake Green Lantern

There are several roles an actor regrets saying “yes” to do. Sometimes the regretful role can cause a speed bump to a rising career. For a few, there is the rare occasion when a role gets so much acclaim that it becomes the dominant defining role of their entire working life. Even earning awards!

Take a look at some of the roles that for good, bad, or different reasons, actors regretted taking on:

Patty Jenkins wishes Wonder Woman had more small, funny moments. If I had my druthers, the movie would be longer with little tiny jokes and moments that were hard to lose, she said. CRACKED.COM


Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman says she would have changed so much. There are probably a hundred things I would have done differently, she said when asked what she'd do differently looking back. CRACKED.COM
