Acting is a profession that requires a lot of versatility and willingness to test boundaries. In the act of immersion, sometimes the script calls for things that the actor himself would never even consider, yet they have to play it naturally. And sometimes that results in a complete nightmare for everyone involved. Here are some movie scenes that actors regret doing. A Titanic drawing Maybe the most memorable scene in Titanic is the one where Kate Winslet's Rose character asks Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack to "draw me like one of your French girls." It's a passionate moment showing her character overcoming the disapproval of her fiancé and mother to claim her own agency and embrace the man she's fallen in love with. "As a paying customer, I expect to get what I want." But now obsessive fans try to get Winslet to sign pictures of herself naked. And she'd love for that to stop. She told Yahoo! News, "I don't sign that picture. It feels very uncomfortable. Why would you do that?" Why indeed. Give that man a shirt Taylor Lautner played the werewolf character Jacob in the Twilight series, and his transformations usually left him shirtless, if not completely naked. Fans loved it, but Lautner worries now that his pecs might overshadow his acting. He told Ace Showbiz, "If I had to choose, I would never take my shirt off again in a movie, but I guess that's not very realistic. I certainly won't be asking to do it, though." A change of heart In the 2013 action comedy Kick-Ass 2, Jim Carrey plays a superhero called Colonel Stars and Stripes who's gruesomely murdered by supervillains. A few months after the film was released, Carrey publicly condemned the level of violence in the film after experiencing change of heart in the aftermath of the tragic Sandy Hook Massacre, which happened shortly after he'd wrapped up filming his scenes. "I did Kick-Ass 2 a month before Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.... I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart." While that's a respectable stand to take, the bosses at Universal Pictures probably wished Carey had figured that out before taking the role. Icky drunk sex Passengers is a science fiction adventure starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Despite the star-power of its cast, it didn't do very well at the box office, partly due to backlash against a crucial plot point that involves a startling disregard for the consent and personal autonomy of one of the characters. Which wasn't helped by Jennifer Lawrence admitting that she spent the sex scenes too drunk to remember doing them. She told CNN she had jitters about the shoot because it was going to be her first time filming a sex scene and also felt guilty about doing so with Pratt, who's married. "I got really drunk. But that led to more anxiety because I was like 'What have I done? I don't know'… And it was gonna be my first time kissing a married man, and the guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach." That leg cross In Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone plays writer-slash-murderer Catherine Tramell, who uses her wits and sex appeal to easily manipulate the men around her, especially in the iconic scene where, by simply uncrossing her legs and *ahem* "flashing the cash" during a police interrogation, she completely reverses the balance of power. "It's nice." Which is sort of ironic, because according to Stone, the scene itself turns out to be born of manipulation and a violation of consent. Stone claims she was asked by director Paul Verhoeven to remove her underwear because the flashes of white were messing up the shot. She was assured there would be no nudity visible on camera and didn't discover she had been tricked until she saw the finished film — in a room full of other people. She responded by slapping Verhoeven, who has publicly denied Stone's claims, saying, "it's a lie." There's a wall there In The Phantom Menace, Terence Stamp plays Chancellor Valorum, who's ushered out in favor of the secret Sith Lord Palpatine thanks to a vote of "no confidence" from Queen Amidala, played by Natalie Portman. It's about as exciting to watch as an actual Senate hearing, but it's important to the overall plot, or what passes for one. Stamp signed on to the movie for the sole purpose of getting to act with Natalie Portman. However, when he actually arrived on set, Portman was nowhere in sight, and Stamp was directed to aim his dialogue towards a piece of paper on the wall instead. He told IndieWire, "It was just pretty boring." Which, not coincidentally, also sums up the entire movie. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
