The lengths some actors are willing to go to just to have a movie made are both impressive and insane.
Making a movie takes months of filming, travel, press tours, and mental exhaustion, but that hasn't stopped some actors going a step further to ensure they're happy with their work.
Actors such as Daniel Day-Lewis and Robert de Niro are known for their crazy method acting techniques; others, such as Tom Hardy and Ryan Gosling, are less about the method acting and more about taking risks with the film itself, switching up genres with every picture they star in.
The following actors fit both of these categories, either taking their role preparation to new heights or trying something totally different in hopes of shedding their previous image. The difference with these actors, though, is that the lengths they went to for their roles were all ruined by the awful films they ended up making.
Whether an actor who took their role preparation to new extremes or an up-and-comer felt like taking a major risk to prove themselves to audiences, here are 9 actors who sacrificed everything for terrible movies.
