When it comes to Hollywood, many of your favorite stars do things that make people scratch their heads. Looking back, they may have more bad memories of their experiences than good. These five actors regret how they made it big. Fortunately, they’ve managed to overcome their faults to become superstars.

Rebel Without A Cause

Before being a huge movie star, many remember Mark Wahlberg from his model/rapper days. During that time, he was a bit rebellious. “I was the biggest punk in the world. I can’t say I’ve done worse things, but yeah, that was not one of my proudest moments,” he told Conan O’Brien. As a parent, he’s teaching his kids to head down a more positive route in life.

Way With Words

Titanic became one of the biggest movies ever with over $2 billion earned at the box office. Actress Kate Winslet simply can’t stand her American accent in the film. “It’s awful. Hopefully, it’s so much better now. It sounds terribly self-indulgent but actors do tend to be very self-critical,” she told The Telegraph. Winslet’s hard work has paid off with five Oscar nominations (and one win) since the movie.

More Than Meets The Eye

You couldn’t escape Megan Fox following her performance in 2007’s Transformers. The Tennessee native simply looks back on that role in shame. “I’m terrible in it. It’s my first real movie and it’s not honest and not realistic. The movie wasn’t bad, I just wasn’t proud about what I did,” she told Entertainment Weekly. Fox bounced back with performances in Jennifer’s Body and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Singing A Sour Note

Before being a smash on Broadway, Newsies introduced the world to Christian Bale. Unfortunately, the actor was unaware that it was a musical before it was too late.  “At 17, you want to be taken very seriously— you don’t want to be doing a musical … Time healed those wounds. But it took a while,” he told Entertainment Weekly. Bale hit his stride in drama films such as The Fighter, which earned him an Oscar in 2011.

With High School Musical, Zac Efron became a household name. Looking back, he’s not fond of how it put a damper on his adult acting career. “I try not to look at all of it. You can’t enjoy or celebrate it, it’s not a real thing. The face on the lunchbox…..you can’t share that with your friends,” he told The Independent. Efron has been turning heads with roles in NeighborsThe Greatest Showman, and The Disaster Artist.
