7 of Your Favorite Actors Who Criticized Their Own YA Movies
YA films can either become massive box-office successes (like The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner) or total failures (like The Mortal Instruments and Vampire Academy) with no possibility of a sequel. Even though young adult flicks have the ability to become widely popular among fangirls, the actors involved don’t always share the same enthusiasm. In fact, several actors will voice their complaints about their movie’s plot, character motivations and even physical characteristics of their own characters!
Filmmakers typically try to remain true to the spirit of the YA novel. But, in doing so, they incorporate such elements that the actors could sometimes do without. At some point, these unsatisfied actors will let it slip that they had a bone (or two) to pick with the potential blockbuster. From Twilight stars to Harry Potter cast members, click through the gallery below to find out who criticized their own YA flicks:
Kristen was part of the Hollywood movie industry before Twilight, but, LBH, she didn't become relevant until the vampire craze took over. Five movies later, KStew is SO DONE answering questions about the franchise, and she hinted that she wasn't even proud of the flicks!
In an interview to promote American Ultra, the actress played a game of "Never Have I Ever" with her costar, Jesse Eisenberg. When the words "never have I ever had a really sh*tty job" appeared on the screen, Kristen had to come clean about her past roles. "Well, I don't want to tell you what movie it is, but I've definitely done a couple of movies where I've been like, 'This movie's a piece of sh*t.'" Ouch! While she didn't exactly call out Twilight, there's a high chance that's what she was referring to.
During another interview, she was asked about her thoughts of a possible reboot of the YA saga. "Are they saying that they have to redo them? Like, we have to do them again?" was her response. Hmm, sounds like she's dunzo with the series.
