    I was reading some Sissy Spacek’s quotes and discovered she thought she was bad in Carrie!

    ”I enjoyed the idea of a sequel, but I hated my role in the first film. I was awful.”

    I was curious, does anyone know of any other examples of this?

    The first example that comes to mind for me is George C. Scott in Patton and also just about everything else he did. He rejected the Oscar because he felt that the other nominees were better than him. He had a very low opinion of his own acting, even though he was brilliant in just about everything I’ve seen him in.

    Holly Hunter dislikes her performance in The Firm. She received a nomination for it.

    Elizabeth Taylor does not think much of her first Oscar win for Butterfield 8.

    Ingrid Bergman said she didnt think she deserved her Oscar for Murder on the Orient Express, and I think she meant it.

    I believe he calls it “The Sound of Mucus”

    I remember Liam Neeson saying he thought everything about Schindler’s List was wonderful except for him. I disagree, but some people are very self-critical. 

    Also Kate Winslet to herself on Titanic: “Really? Really? You did it like that?”

    I’m shocked by Spacek’s comments on Carrie!

    Wow, that’s crazy that Spacek thought she was bad in Carrie.  I can’t imagine it being done any better.

    I guess actors know better than anyone else when they’re “faking it”.

    I remember hearing that Denzel Washington once said that he thinks he’s an overrated actor and that he thinks he just does the same thing over and over again a lot of times.

    I also remember reading about Nicole Kidman thinking she was horrible in Australia.

    Gene Hackman also really hates to watch himself on screen.

    Christopher Plummer has come round in recent years. He appeared on Oprah a couple of years ago for a Sound of Music cast reunion. He said something along the lines of his views of the film have changed due the enduring widespread love of the film that has lasted over the decades. Of course that doesn’t mean that he has changed his opionon of his performance in the film.

    When and where the hell did he ever say that?

    Honestly, I can’t even remember if it’s something I read or just heard someone say they read/saw (who could have been wrong).  So don’t take my word for it on that one.

    I found more…

    Cary Grant hated his performance in ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’, saying it was to over the top and it was his least favourite film.

    James Stewart hated his performance in ‘The Philadelphia Story’ and thought his Oscar should have went to Henry Fonda.
