Everybody’s got to start somewhere, and if you’re an actor, you’re probably going to get that start in some kind of bit part in a bad movie or TV show. Or maybe you did get off to hot start, but then suffered from a mid career slump that forced you to take a part that you’d rather forget. But when you’re on top, you can’t erase that line on your resume. Your low moment will live on. Even if it was straight to DVD, it still is on DVD. It can be found on YouTube. There’s no escape, so just learn to love and embrace your awfulness (George Clooney could give a master class on this).
The Fab Life has put together a gallery of this year’s Oscar nominees and their least award winning roles. Here are some highlights of their lowlights:
- “The Artist’s” Jean Dujardin as something that appears to be a French perception of the California surfer dude in “Brice du Nice.”
- Gary Oldman as some kind of deformed villain in “Hannibal.”
- Max von Sydow as the Emperor Ming in “Flash Gordon.”
- Meryl Streep with Roseanne in “She-Devil.”
- Rooney Mara in “Nightmare on Elm Street”–the remake.
- Kenneth Branagh in legendary box office disaster “The Wild Wild West” (not to mention his dreadful Frankenstein).
- Christopher Plummer in “Dracula 2000.”
- Brad Pitt in TV’s “Dallas.”
- And of course, George Clooney in every bad ’80s sitcom he appeared in. And there were many.
