Famous Actors Who Refuse To Watch Their Own Films

Hollywood has brought us plenty of memorable films, but nothing brings a story alive than a fine actor! Some movies are so good that we can’t help but watch them repeatedly every few days. However, although it may seem strange to us, many top actors have never viewed their own films. Among them are the following celebrities:

1. Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp is one of the most well-known actors in the world! The guy has roles in films like Edward Scissorhands, Black Mass, and Pirates Of The Caribbean, yet he hasn’t watched any of them! In a 2009 interview with David Letterman, he stated that his children had seen more of his films than he has. “In a way, once my job is done on a film, it’s really none of my business,” Depp said. “I stay far away as I possibly can … I don’t like watching myself.” Depp wishes he could see how great his co-stars do, despite the fact that he plainly isn’t interested in watching himself.

2. Jared Leto

In a 2017 interview with SyFy Wire, Jared Leto stated that while he appreciates watching glimpses of himself every now and then, he will never sit through a complete film of his own. The actor also acknowledged that he hadn’t seen Dallas Buyers Club, even months after winning an Oscar for it. Despite portraying a unique and difficult part, he claimed that the filmmaking process is different for him than it is for other actors. Leto has also stated that seeing his own films is worthless since he already knows how they would wrap.

3. Reese Witherspoon

Since her debut in the 1990s, Reese Witherspoon has been killing the game. However, she has a compelling reason for not seeing her films: she claims that doing this would cause her to “spiral into a state of self-hate.” She not only doesn’t watch her movies but often also has trouble remembering which ones she has been in! She has, however, seen snatches of her work, but says she feels odd about it later on.

4. Andrew Garfield

Andrew Garfield informed reporters in an appearance with the Hollywood Reporter while promoting the film Never Let Me Go. He claimed that he hadn’t watched the film and typically doesn’t. He expressed concern that he may discover or find something about himself that will cause him to lose his balance. The makers of The Social Network, on the other hand, forced him to attend a showing of the film. “They made me watch that one,” he admits.

5. Joaquin Phoenix

Only two of Joaquin Phoenix‘s films have been watched by him: The Master and Her. The Hollywood A-Lister, who is most known for his role in Signs, reveals that he is actually curious to see how he appears on camera. But, in the end, he believes it will have a detrimental impact on his future works.
