29 Actors Who Weren't Fans of Their Most Famous Roles
There's an undeniable excitement you have as an actor when you land a meaty and interesting role in a major movie-- It's the kind of thing you call your parents about, trying to keep it together while also rubbing in their faces that they wanted you to throw away your dream of being on the big screen and go into the family dentistry practice. Suck it, Dad! Teeth are for suckers!
Still, at the end of the day, acting is a job. You punch in, you do what you're told, and you get your (possibly lucrative) paycheck. Despite some of these amazing performances that have wormed their way into the consciousness of the movie going public… It doesn't always mean it was the performer's favorite day at work. Some, in fact, would very much prefer you didn't bring them up when you bump into them on street.
Who knows, maybe dentistry wasn't such a bad idea.
