(Newser) – Shocked when Angus T. Jones called his own show, Two and a Half Men, "filth"? Well, don't be: It's not all that rare for someone in Hollywood to trash his or her own project. Celebuzz rounds up nine more who did the same:

  • Katherine Heigl: First she called Knocked Up "a little sexist," then she withdrew her name from Emmy consideration due to sub-par Grey's Anatomy material the following year.
  • Christopher Plummer: If you thought The Sound of Music was immune to such criticism, think again: Its own star called it "awful and sentimental and gooey."

  • Richard Gere: If you've spent all these years idolizing Pretty Woman, prepare to be disappointed. Gere called it a "silly romantic comedy."
  • Halle Berry: When she received a Razzie for 2005's Catwoman, she admitted it was a "godawful piece of s--t movie."
  • Chloe Sevigny: Just two months after winning a Golden Globe for Big Love, she called it "far-fetched" and said the show was "really pushing it this last season."
Click for the complete list, especially if you want to know which star "hated" her film "with a vengeance."

We who pay to watch tv shows and movies are the only true judges.

You know, I can understand actors doing some gigs for the money and not agreeing with the message, but if you can acknowledge that the movie is a piece of shit why don't you speak up and offer advice? Not all directors or producers will listen, but it's worth a shot instead of just complaining about it after the fact. In the insert on the Simpsons movie soundtrack, Matt Groening tells a great story about how Hans Zimmer pointed out a portion of the script that didn't make sense. Groening realized he was right, and had that part of the film redone for the better.
