16 Celebrities’ Best And Worst Moments

Throughout celebrities’ career, we all know that they must have their highlights and of course, lowlights as well. One cannot succeed and thrive all the time, simple to say.
A lot of actors must take on roles in small films before making a name for themselves in blockbusters, and the same number of musical artists must first perform in a small crowd before being able to enter a national tour.
However, there are still some parts that when celebrities have in their profile, they simply make us question how high they were when they signed those contracts.

The late director was most famous for helming the holiday classic A Christmas Story (1983). However, not many people know that he also directed The Karate Dog (2004), a 2.7/10 rating movie (on IMDb) that features Oscar winner Jon Voight combating a CGI dog.

2. Anthony Hopkins

The 2-time Academy Awards winner was known for his captivating subtlety of Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the 1991 movie The Silence of the Lambs. However, little shall be remembered of his phenomenal goofiness in his portrayal of Hitler in the 1981 movie The Bunker.

3. Tim Robbins

On Saturday, March 6, 2010, Sandra Bullock collected a Razzie Award for her performance in All About Steve. One day later, she collected an Oscar for her role in The Blind Side. That’s a turbulent weekend.

5. Halle Berry

Similar to Sandra Bullock, but the period in between two awards that Halle Berry received is 3 years. In 2001, she won the Oscar for best actress in a leading role for her part in the movie Monster’s Ball. In 2004, she collected the Razzie Award for worst actress for her portrayal in Catwoman.

6. Kit Harrington

For his role as Jon Snow in the TV series Game of Thrones, fans just hope Kit Harrington’s character does not die. On the contrary, in the movie Silent Hill: Revelation, Kit’s Vincent Cooper is simply disliked by fans.

7. Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman was highly appreciated for his role in Prisoners (2013), a tense thriller about a desperate man searching for his abducted daughter. But his role as a guy who doesn’t realize he has a BALLSACK on his neck in Movie 43 (2013), needs to be forgotten.

8. Sharon Stone

Sharon Stone received considerable praise for her performance in the 1992 neo-noir thriller Basic Instinct, which had a box office of $352 million. But with Basic Instinct 2, the ill-conceived 2006 sequel, Stone got a Razzie for worst actress. The movie only grossed $38 million at the box office.

9. Roberto Benigni

Roberto Benigni directed and starred in Life Is Beautiful (1997), a movie that won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film and Best Actor for Benigni himself.

David Carradine stars as Bill in Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, which received 85% and 84% on Rotten Tomatoes, respectively. None of us may have any idea why he shows up as the Museum Curator in Epic Movie.

11. Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp got his highlights in Black Mass (2015), a crime drama based on the true story of the most infamously violent and psychotic criminal in South Boston’s history turned FBI informant. For this role, Depp was nominated for Best Actor 7 different times. His lowlights were in Mortdecai (2015), a superficial action comedy in which Depp’s character must use his good looks and charm to retrieve a stolen painting. He was nominated for worst actor twice, winning the Yoga Awards for Worst Foreign Actor.

12. Charles Dance

Charles Dance’s role as Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones might be deemed among the best characters ever. But his part as Deputy Prime Minister David Carlton in Ali G Indahouse just caused people to say: “What the hell?”

13. Sylvester Stallone

Not only did Sly Stallone write, direct and star in Rocky (1976), but he also took home two Academy Awards for Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay as the quiet, iconic American boxer, Rocky Balboa. Once again co-written and starring Sly himself, he decided to try his hand with a modern, musical comedy in Rhinestone (1984). Spoiler: Mr. Stallone isn’t much of a singer and earned himself a Golden Raspberry Award.

14. Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx earned an Oscar for Best Actor in Ray (2004), before his movie Stealth (2005) suffered one of the worst financial losses in movie history, making $76 million on a budget of $135 million. And he got no Oscar out of the deal.

15. Dennis Hopper

Dennis Hopper’s highlights are possibly literally his performance as psychopath Frank Booth in David Lynch’s 1986 film Blue Velvet. His lowlights are his jaw-droppingly atrocious performance as King Koopa (seriously) in 1993’s Super Mario Bros.

16. Lawrence Kasdan

With Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Lawrence Kasdan wrote the screenplay for arguably the greatest Star Wars movie to date. With Dreamcatcher (2003), Kasdan wrote and directed the Stephen King adapted crapfest about aliens that come out of people’s butts.
