Jim Carrey’s Rant Against Kick-Ass 2 and 13 Other Stars Who Hate Their Own Films

After slamming Fox News and gun lovers—including the late Charlton Heston—comedic actor Jim Carrey took to Twitter to decry his upcoming film Kick-Ass 2. “I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence,” Carrey tweeted, adding, “I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.” In the film, Carrey plays Colonel Stars and Stripes, a masked vigilante who fights crime with the help of his ball-munching canine sidekick. Producer Mark Millar took to his website to issue a response, writing, “I’m baffled by this sudden announcement as nothing seen in this picture wasn’t in the screenplay eighteen months ago. Yes, the body count is very high, but a movie called Kick-Ass 2 really has to do what it says on the tin.” Carrey, however, joins a long line of stars who have hated on their own films. From Alec Guinness’s distaste for the first Star Wars movie to Katherine Heigl’s accusations of “sexism” against Knocked Up, here are the stars’ most scathing critiques on their own films.

20 Best “New York” Movies

We’re not talking about the twenty best movies set in New York, and we’re not talking about the twenty best movies where New York comes-up in conversation. We’re not talking about postcards or props. These twenty movies earned their places on the list because New York contributes to their look, feel, sound, dialogue, and development. These twenty movies show as much about The City as they show about their characters and plots. In each film, New York deserves recognition as the best supporting actor. You may dispute the rankings, but you cannot dispute the twenty movies’ reliance on New York for much of their distinction.

25 Best Coen Brother Characters

A classic Hollywood leading man who's duped into participating in his own kidnapping. An Esther Williams-like bathing beauty who talks like a Brooklyn dock worker. A happy hoofer harboring a secret. A studio fixer stuck in an existential crisis of faith. Not one but two chirpy gossipmongers, both played by Tilda Swinton. Like most Coen brothers movies, the siblings' latest — the old-timey Tinseltown satire Hail, Caesar! — is chock full of goofs, rubes, dames (of the daffy and determined variety), swells, thugs, mugs, and the occasional pure-of-heart innocent. But all of the singular creations in Joel and Ethan's new comedy come from a long line of unforgettable heroes and villains that have graced the cinema du Coen since the very beginning.

7 Hypocrites Who Call For Gun Control While Being Protected By Guns

One of the great ironies of the gun control debate is that everyone who calls for gun control still wants a man with a gun protecting him. Every governor in America has armed security. You have to go through a metal detector guarded by men with guns to get into the Capitol building. Barack Obama has hundreds of Secret Service agents carrying fully automatic weapons who protect his safety. Even run-of-the-mill Democrats who want to take guns away from everyone else will unhesitatingly put up the phone and call the police if they feel threatened — so that a man with a gun can show up and make them safe. But, if a man in a bad neighborhood wants a gun to make his family safe, a rape victim wants a gun to be protected, or just the average Joe wants a gun in case his life is endangered by a burglar, thug or the next Adam Lanza, these same people want to take their guns away. Pro-gun control Democrats may think we have an “upper class” that deserves to be protected with guns while it’s okay if the “peons” get shot, but that goes against the core of what America is supposed to be.
