7 Actors Who Made Fun Of Their Works

Getting started in acting as a profession is challenging. It's not uncommon for male and female performers and actresses to be the target of ridicule from the media and the public. One thing that always stays the same in the acting industry is that everyone is made fun of at least once or twice (or a thousand times). It's unusual to witness a famous person criticizing their work, but the folks on this list can easily poke fun at themselves without blushing.
This quality may be positive and detrimental depending on the context: it's never good to be too hard on yourself, but it's also good to see when you're making mistakes and work to improve. The ability to laugh at one's foibles is also a valuable trait. Today, we give you a list of actors who made fun of their works.
