10 Embarrassing Roles Of 2012 Oscar Nominees

Sure this year's Oscar nominees are at the top of their games now...but it wasn't always that way. A lot of them have some pretty shameful credits to their names. So while this may be a time in their lives that they will always want to remember, I'm pretty sure they'd rather we forget some of their more embarrassing roles.

 

Rooney Mara--Law And Order: SVU

Mara starred as a teen who, along with her boyfriend, beats up fat people, because she used to be overweight and hates fat people... for some reason? Yeah. I much prefer her kicking the asses of sexual predators and sadistic serial killers as Lisbeth Salander.  Although I do prefer her with the eyebrows she sported as the chubby hater.

 

Jonah Hill--Accepted

Jonah Hill pretty much spends this whole movie being humiliated, in character and IRL.  So I'm happy to see him as an Oscar nominee. Although I do miss him being chubby. But at least he'll be safe from chubby hater Rooney Mara. (I don't separate fiction from reality)

 

George Clooney-- Return Of The Killer Tomatoes!

The only thing more baffling than George Clooney starring in a movie this dumb, is the string of boring D-List bimbos he's constantly dating. HE'S GEORGE FRIGGIN' CLOONEY! He could get totally A-List bimbos if he wanted to!

 

Michelle Williams--Baywatch

Seriously? I thought Dawson's Creek was bad, but BAYWATCH? No wonder she was so good at getting her jiggle on as Marilyn!

 

Brad Pitt--Dallas

Hunky Pitt starred as a bad boy heartthrob who leaves the good girl for a sexy vixen on this 80s soap classic. Kind of like what happened to him in real life. But with 24 less kids.

 

Viola Davis-- Madea Goes To Jail

Any movie written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry should be considered a blemish on any actor's resume. Even for that dude who played Bucky Larson.

 

Gary Oldman-- The Scarlet Letter

The only thing more ridiculous than Demi Moore attempting to speak with a British accent, is Oldman trying to get his soft-porn on. Maybe I would buy it if he was in character as Sirius Black. That would be hot.

 

Melissa McCarthy--The Jenny McCarthy Show

It's gotta be a little humiliating to have your WAY less talented cousin throw you a bone by offering you a bit part on her crappy show. At least it prepared Melissa for the embarrassment she would one day feel when filming an explosive diarrhea scene. I'm assuming that was embarrassing for her. Maybe she's completely comfortable pooing in a sink, what do I know?

 

Christopher Plummer--Starcrashers

It took Christopher Plummer nearly 30 years to recover from the shame of starring alongside David Hasselhoff, in what has been described as a 'Z-movie version' of Star Wars. Which is probably still better than any of the Star Wars 'prequels'.

 

Octavia Spencer--Wizards of Waverly Place

I have no idea what her role on this show was. All I know is that because of this show, when you Google her name, you will find a picture of her sporting a deformed penis on her face. Ewww.

Which role do you think is the most embarrassing? Let us know in the comments!
