10 Actors That Absolutely Hate The Shows That Got Them To Stardom
In every A-list celebrity movie career there is always that one role that puts that actor or actress into the spotlight. In the industry it’s known as their “big break.” It is these roles that make them into who they are today and ultimately define their acting career for decades. However despite that role bringing them great fame and fortune, there are some actors and actresses who wish their fans forgot about those specific roles.
Over the years as various roles propelled actors and actresses to the higher ranks of celebrities, the more that is revealed how much some detested those roles. For example, Gossip Girl is probably the most-watched teenage drama. It stars Blake Lively as Serena van Der Woodsen and Penn Badgley and Dan Humphries. However, the stars behind those characters fervently wish for these iconic roles to be a distant memory, rather than the label they have for the rest of their career.
There are many other actors and actresses who feel the same way as this list below shows.
Blake Lively – Gossip Girl
As mentioned above, Lively wasn’t the biggest fan about her Gossip Girl character. In an interview, she admitted that, “I would not be proud to be the person who gave someone the cocaine that made them overdose and then shot someone and slept with someone else’s boyfriend. People loved it, but it always felt a little personally compromising – you want to be putting a better message out there.”
Penn Badgley – Gossip Girl
Similar to what we’ve mentioned before, Blake Lively wasn’t the only one displeased with their role in Gossip Girl. Dan Humphries was another dissatisfied actor and what bugged him the most was the overall show’s message.
In a 2015 tweet: “Lol s*** we are *reclining* in New York City. I’m posted up like a futon. Talk about an image of white privilege.”
Miley Cyrus – Hannah Montana
Several of the stars on the Disney Channel regretted their decision being on there. Amongst them was Miley Cyrus when she starred as the famous Hannah Montana for four years. It wasn’t until in 2015 when she admitted there were some definite problems with the role off camera:
“I was made to look like someone that I wasn’t, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn’t on that show, it was like, ‘Who the f—- am I?’”
