When you watch a movie, you don’t think about the work conditions the actors must have endured during filming. Because of their contracts, they can’t walk off the set. Many actors, including these five, nearly quit their most famous movie roles mid-shooting. Could you imagine the movies without them?

Brad Pitt Was Miserable In ‘Interview With A Vampire’

Brad Pitt is well-known for his charming role in the 1994 film Interview with a Vampire. But if it looks like he was miserable while the film was being made. Pitt revealed he was always in the dark and was forced to wear contact lenses and make-up he hated. Pitt wanted to quit, but he didn’t want to pay $40 million to be released from his contract.

Emma Watson Valued Her Education

Emma Watson has always valued her education. She wasn’t going to allow her famous role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise to stop her from pursuing a college degree. At one point she even considered quitting the franchise, knowing the decision would make her public enemy number one. Luckily, the studio worked its schedule to accommodate Watson’s educational aspirations.

Jim Carrey’s ‘Grinch’ Costume Was Too Stinky!

Jim Carrey didn’t enjoy playing his iconic role in the 2000 live-action film The Grinch. It’s all because of the costume and make-up. He endured itchy green hair, extensive facial prosthetics, and yellow contact lenses. It took the actor eight hours to get into character. He was ready to quit before director Ron Howard hired CIA operatives to teach Carrey how to comfortably deal with the long hours of getting into costume.

Salma Hayek Was A #MeToo Survivor

Salma Hayek was excited to portray muralist Frida Kahlo in the 2002 biopic Frida. But unfortunately, she worked for Harvey Weinstein, the now-disgraced Hollywood producer who has been accused of sexually assaulting many stars, including Hayek. According to the actress, Weinstein asked her to shower with him, massage him, and pressured her for sex. If she denied him, he threatened to kill her. We don’t blame Hayek for wanting to quit.

Al Pacino Wasn’t Needed In ‘The Godfather’

The 1972 film The Godfather is one of the greatest movies of all time. But Al Pacino almost didn’t appear in the film. The then-unknown actor wasn’t Paramount’s first choice to play Michael Corleone. Director Francis Ford Coppola had to convince the studio to cast Pacino. But the actor almost quit. He said, “I don’t want to be where I’m not wanted.” Can you imagine the iconic movie without him?
