Stars' embarrassing movie moments picture thread

A colleague just forwarded this to me - I can't help but wonder if Sean Connery sees this and thinks 'What was I thinking' or 'Man, I used to be hot' or 'I look like Borat in a bondage movie'. Any movie stills you can find that would embarass you if you were that star most appreciated.

Zardoz was directed by John Boorman who also directed Deliverance and Exorcist II. Exorcist II and Zardoz were huge disappointments. I walked out of both movies long before they were over.

@wandeljw,
I don't know if the still is particularly embarrasing, but the film was. Streep, who I always though was a good actor, is absolutely appalling in this. They should never have made the film and left it as a BBC drama which was quite good. BTW I quite liked Zardoz, but I was tripping my nuts off when I watched it.

Steve McQueen in a film version of an Ibsen play, adapted by Arthur Miller.

Ali MacGraw had told McQueen that he should be doing serious films.

oh lord - Sly looks like a muscled up Steve Gutenberg. I've never seen the movie(s) (really!) so looking at it I was wondering if was a camp remake of a Funicello/Avalon beach movie.

I can imagine this scene taking quite a few takes - and having to change into dry tops over and over while the director pleaded 'really show us the love'

@hingehead,
It just doesn't sit well - two well muscled men dressed in the horrible style of the 70s - running and prancing in the surf and about to embrace....

and they are not gay and shown on the Spike channel to top it off.

@Linkat,
the socks complete the ensemble.

I used to have socks like that.

Paul Newman made his film debut in a costume quasi-Biblical epic called "The Silver Chalice." Personally embarrassed by the movie (which he called "the worst motion picture produced during the 1950s"), Newman took out a full-page ad in one of the trade papers to apologize for his performance, which he considered awful, when the movie was shown on TV in 1966. Although the ad urged people not to watch the film, it backfired and the broadcast received unusually high ratings. In 1980 he received The Golden Turkey Award from Michael and Harry Medved for Most Embarrassing Movie Debut.
