10 Celebrities Who Hated Their Own Biopics

It’s all too easy to see a biopic somewhere on the internet and believe it’s historically correct. It’s much easier to believe that the people in the biopic will be proud of what they presented. Because their names must be popular enough to make a biopic on the internet and even turn that biopic into a movie.  However, numerous celebrities despise their biopics. In many circumstances, it’s difficult to blame people for not enjoying how their lives were portrayed, especially inaccurate biopics that modified the plot to make them more screen-friendly.

Then there are controversial characters who object to how they were portrayed because they appeared to be too much of a terrible man. In some situations, such as Mark Zuckerberg’s distaste of The Social Network, the outrage stems from their less-than-flattering portrayals, rather than the biopics themselves. Other times, like Lil’ Kim’s condemnation of the horrible Biggie Smalls film Notorious, she is in the right.

Today, we have compiled a list of 10 famous people who hated the biopics that were presented in movies.

#1 ‘Pain & Gain’ Caused Kidnap Victim Marc Schiller Actual Pain

Marc Schiller was abducted, tortured, and murdered by the Sun Gym Gang, a group of Florida bodybuilders. In Pain & Gain, Michael Bay’s attempt to parody the American dream was spruced up by some characteristic, frantic Michael Bay “humor.”

Schiller was not amused by Bay’s use of his tragic history. The real kidnappers ran him over with a car after attempting to “blow [him] up,” placing him in a coma. Victor Kershaw (Tony Shaloub), the Schiller character, is subjected to a similar treatment in the film, but it is played for laughs.

#2 MC Ren Played A More Prominent Role IRL Than He Did In ‘Straight Outta Compton’

So MC Ren didn’t truly dislike the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, but he wasn’t thrilled with how minor a role he played in the film; or, more precisely, the one the actor representing him in the film played.

Despite his small involvement in the film, MC Ren was a significant contributor to NWA. Ren, for example, authored four songs and co-wrote three others on the album Straight Outta Compton, ranking second only to Ice Cube in terms of contributions. Eazy-E did not compose any. However, Ren’s role in the film was exceedingly minimal, most likely because he was not involved in the filmmaking process, as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Eazy-family E’s were.

#3 Art Howe Wasn’t The Subject Of ‘Moneyball’ But He Was Sub-Pleased With It

Art Howe was the Oakland Athletics manager who was inaccurately portrayed by Philip Seymour Hoffman in Moneyball. According to Howe, the way he was portrayed was terribly unsatisfactory and perhaps opposed to who he is.

Howe clearly felt victimized, and rightly so. He went on to say that the film would be most people’s only exposure to him.

#4 Ike Turner Doesn’t Regret Anything, And Claims ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It?’ Is Total BS

“What does love have to do with it?” is the infamous marriage of Ike and Tina Turner. Ike is presented in the film as an abusive, drug-addicted monster who slaps, punches, and even rapes his wife. He even held a press conference to discuss the film and Tina’s book about their romance, I, Tina.

#5 Nina Simone’s Family Really Didn’t Like ‘Nina’

Nina Simone’s family believed that the appearance of whoever played Nina in a biopic was critical because the singer’s appearance was crucial to the difficulties she encountered. So they weren’t overjoyed when Zoe Saldana was cast as Nina. Nina’s daughter, Lisa Simone, stated that her mother was raised in a time when her nose was too big and her skin was too dark.

Saldana wore a fake nose and dark makeup to make matters worse for Simone’s family. However, Lisa later defended Saldana while explaining the film’s flaws as well as the greater social and historical backdrop of the project and her mother’s life.

#6 David Letterman Doesn’t See Himself As A Psychopath But Thinks ‘The Late Shift’ Portrayed Him As Such

The portrayal of David Letterman in HBO’s The Late Shift supposedly outraged him. Still, in his most famous assessment of the film, he sounded more unimpressed: “I’m sure the actor playing me is talented, but his version of me appears to be that I’m a circus ape. He appears insane, like a potential psychopath.”

Letterman actor John Michael Higgins believed the character was difficult to cast because no actor wanted to risk enraging someone as powerful as the late-night host. Higgins only accepted the position because he needed work and money.

#7 At Least They Got Mark Zuckerberg’s Clothes Right In ‘The Social Network’

Mark Zuckerberg is unconcerned about The Social Network, although he did point out that the most realistic aspect of the film was his outfit, joking that director David Fincher nailed it down to the identical t-shirt and flip-flops. However, he noted that the video made his rationale for launching Facebook appear less compelling.

#8 Lil’ Kim’s Notorious Indictment Of ‘Notorious’

Not only did Lil’ Kim believe Notorious B.I.G. got the facts wrong, calling “much of the story bullsh*t,” but she was also dissatisfied with Naturi Naughton’s portrayal of her. Kim claimed Naughton was the worst conceivable choice after watching audition recordings of numerous actresses who tried out for the part. Excellent work, gentlemen.

Kim also highlighted her concerns about the film’s portrayal of her connection with and importance to Biggie.

#9 Julian Assange Thinks ‘The Fifth Estate’ Is An Attempt To Discredit His Accomplishments

Julian Assange, an Australian “whistleblower,” as opposed to The Fifth Estate before the first scene was shot. He wrote a lengthy letter to star Benedict Cumberbatch in an attempt to persuade him not to take the part. He described the effort as “a work of political opportunism, influence, revenge, and, above all, cowardice.”

#10 Michael Oher Wasn’t Quite As Helpless As ‘The Blind Side’ Makes Out

Michael Oher, a professional football player, enjoyed The Blind Side for the motivation it provided, but he was offended by how he was represented. He claimed that the film made him appear uninformed about sports, despite the fact that sports were all he knew growing up.

Oher also believes that the film has harmed his career.
