18 Creators Who Hated Their Most Famous Work

Regardless of how tiny or enormous our works are, the majority of us are delighted with them. There is an undeniable thrill to the act of creation. Whenever we discover that somebody enjoyed or admired our effort, it brings us great joy. However, it's worth noting that this isn't the case for everyone. Some people just utterly loathe their inventions.

The best performers aren't hesitant to confess that they might not always make the right decisions.
