10 Actors Who Admitted They Hate Their Iconic Roles

Every actor dreams of having an iconic role in their acting career but it’s not a piece of cake. Many actors have to take countless auditions, acting classes, and considerable efforts to make it to the top. They have spent their entire lives waiting for one role that will make them famous and most never find it.
In contrast, some actors finally get their big break and are forever linked to that magical part. However, several don’t actually like some of the characters they’ve played, even if those roles helped make them famous. While some hated their performance, others dislike their character’s views, actions, or beliefs. Many movie stars wait until filming is over, the project’s been released and any contrasts have expired to open up about their dislike of their work.
Here are actors who hated playing their characters but did it anyway.
