10 Actors That Went From Their Best Movie To Their Worst

From critical acclaim to box office pain.

We all have a bad day at work from time to time. Whether it's mixing up colleagues' lunch orders or accidentally breaking your boss's favourite mug in the staff room, it can happen to the best of us. Even some of Hollywood's finest aren't impervious to the occasional slip-up every now and then, too.

After impressing audiences with their talents in roles that have ultimately helped define careers, it's not uncommon for the same actor to follow it up with something that isn't reflective of their abilities at all.

In fact, sometimes it could be some of the worst work they've ever produced.

This isn't to say that any of these performers are objectively bad in any way, but occasionally the pieces don't fit as they were expected. It could be because they were too ambitious for their own good, securing a part that was never right for them to begin with, or they were obliged to be in something they knew would sink and gave as minimal effort as possible, saving energy for a more promising production.

Even Hollywood's finest need to work for a living, after all.
