12 Celebrities Who Have Publicly Dissed Their Own Projects
It often rubs me the wrong way when celebrities criticize projects they were voluntarily involved in. It's unfortunately pretty common in Hollywood to witness A-list stars biting the hands that fed them. Even if a movie or TV show was critically panned or made fun of by the general public, it still A.) was a project they chose to take on, B.) probably made them a lot of money, C.) likely helped their career, and D.) required plenty of hard-working people behind-the-scenes. And it's not usually just a critique of their own performance. On the contrary, it usually includes the suggestion that their talent is too good for such crap.
I think it's different if the project involved questionable working conditions or abuse of power or something similarly serious. But most of the time it just seems to be a general lack of pride in the quality of something they've been involved in. Most people have had jobs they didn't enjoy, but not everyone goes complaining to the press about it. These are just twelve of the many stars who've dissed their own projects. Some are definitely more ugh-worthy than others, but they all kind of leave a bad taste in my mouth.
1. Joe Jonas
In a seemingly endless tell-all for New York Magazine published earlier this week, Joe complained about the Disney system. One of his complaints was that the Jonas Brothers' sitcom just wasn't high-brow enough:
“But the thing about the show was that some of the writing on it was terrible. It just ended up being some weird slapstick humor that only a 10-year-old would laugh at.”
