There are lots of reasons why actors take on certain movie roles. Some simply enjoy the script, welcome the challenge, or don’t want to pass up the opportunity to work with a specific director or actor. Others choose their roles based on how far the filming location is from their home or how the schedule fits around other projects. Or perhaps their agent told them to do it.

But despite this sometimes complicated formula, actors make mistakes. They pick movies they shouldn’t have. Sometimes we understand. Maybe it was something they did prior to being famous, and just took the role to pay the bills or because they have nothing better on the table at the time.
