10 Famous Actors Who Were Forced To Appear In Movies Against Their Will

9. Shia LaBeouf - Transformers: Dark Of The Moon

Shia LaBeouf gets a lot of stick for, you know, being Shia LaBeouf. But even this controversial actor - one who may or may not have gone totally and utterly crazy in recent years - knows a bad movie when he sees one. Case in point: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Michael Bay's Godawful Transformers sequel; a motion picture so bad that it actually hurts to sit through it. Nonsensical from start to finish, it's a bloated, ugly cinematic mess. "When I saw the second movie, I wasn't impressed with what we did," said LaBeouf when asked about it. "We got lost. We tried to get bigger. It's what happens to sequels. went so big that it became too big; you lost the anchor of the movie." No kidding, Shia. Why, then, did he come back to the third (and arguably worse) second sequel, then, having seen the results of Revenge of the Fallen? Two words: contractual obligation. Despite all his efforts to abandon the franchise after the second film, LaBeouf had signed a three-picture deal and was forced to see it through until Mark Wahlberg took over come Transformers: Age of Extinction. Which, for the record, is the worst of the bunch.
