You know what’s great about actors? Sometimes they make a really good film. Then again, sometimes they make a really bad film. And sometimes, just sometimes, the same actor does both within a remarkably short space of time. Join us as we count down the ten actors who’ve flipped the classic/flop switch with incredible speed.
When the last trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 landed online the other week, I was temporarily lost in face-devouring wow. While I’m sure the finished film will live up to my own TOWERING expectations, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time I was enchanted by a trailer only to be left disappointingly underwhelmed by the finished film itself.
One minute you’re basking in rapturous applause, gratefully clasping the most coveted of all tiny golden men, and the next, well, you’re teaming up with Ashton Kutcher for yet another kooky road comedy. We explore the terrifying curse of the Best Actress Oscar, and pay homage to those poor souls struck down…
I’m not sure whether it is offensive or complimentary to be so good at portraying a stripper that you are offered a job in the lapdancing club you are filming in. I guess we should be thankful that Kristen Stewart wasn’t approached by Team Vampire after seeing her in Twilight to make her into a real life vampire girlfriend.
No, no, NO! This cannot be happening. Why can’t they just leave The Rocky Horror Picture Show ALONE? And why in the name of all things good would they let Glee creator, Ryan Murphy get his horrible eating, praying and loving mitts on it? Lock him in a Coca Cola freezer, I say.
Imagine that all that was once gold has turned to rusty iron. Yeah, it’s bad, but most of us have too many responsibilities and not enough in the bank, to just go swanning off for a year. But say if you were an unhappy, attractive American woman with money to spare who longs to “marvel at something”, then you probably wouldn’t find yourself laying about in your pjs, picking fluff out of your bellybutton. Most likely you would go galavanting off into the sunset. Puh-lease. Come back to the real world, Julia Roberts.
