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."
