That is how Megan Fox ended up nearly blacklisted. She **** all over Michael Bay, even if he deserved it. Though she managed to somehow make a comeback despite her limitations.

At least not while they are in theatres. Actors talk about their bad films all the time at a later date.

I remember when Chris Evans was doing press for Fantastic Four 2 and you could tell he really didn't want to be there and wasn't enthusiastic about the movie.

There are also times it is refreshing to see an actor state they didn't feel the movie they were in was good. If an actor can't put pride in their work on a film, they should be able to say as much. Tactfully of course. This idea that you should promote a bad film for publicity shouldn't be above honesty.

Hard to believe this thread began with us talking about racist cereals. Or something like that, I don't remember anymore.

Oh yeah, that's fine and dandy. George Clooney joking about Batman & Robin is hilarious. But if he were doing that back in 1997, he would have been shooting himself in the foot. But at the end of the day, LaBeouf is a special case. Franco was an ass for dogging on Rise of the Planet of the Apes then he looked like an even bigger jackass when the film made bank.

the reason why actors dont bring up their bad movies because every moment they are talking to the media they are promoting themselves...no need to bring up bad movies

I was thinking that too. Although I'd rather talk about the acting or lack of acting skills of celebrities than racist YouTube comments that should not even be newsworthy.

Saying someone on YouTube was racist is like saying a man in a white hood and bed sheets burning a cross in your yard is racist. You kind of expect it.

I don't respect any actors dogging their own movies. You make the most money out of most ego worked on it and probably do the easiest part. That goes for Chris Evans as well a kid I followed.since teen movie. No one told you to do crap. You could have quit. People work hard on that. I just can't respect that at all, especially when you weren't that good in it as well

They have interracial families in commercials like this in the UK and no one makes a peep.

They brought it back, and I didn't notice it was an interracial couple.

I think their lives were a disaster before the "reality" show, we just got front show viewings.

I hate interracial couples. Not because I'm racist, but because its such an egotistical thing to do. "We have different skin color and look how happy we are!"

One does not give a fu**!
