Do you ever see a trailer for what is clearly a bad movie and wonder how the stars can promote the thing with a straight face? They can’t. They’re lying about how good it is. And sometimes, after the fact, they come back and admit that the movie was bad, and maybe even apologize a little.
1. George Clooney is still very sorry about Batman and Robin.
“With hindsight it’s easy to look back and go ‘Whoa, that was really shit and I was really bad in it.’ In a weird way I was. Batman is still the biggest break I ever had and it completely changed my career, even if it was weak and I was weak in it. It was a difficult film to be good in. I don’t know what I could have done differently.”
2. Even Sylvester Stallone thinks Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is terrible.
“The worst film I’ve ever made by far, maybe one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including alien productions we’ve never seen. A flatworm could write a better script than Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. In some countries – China, I believe – running Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot once a week on government television has lowered the birth rate to zero.”
