One would think that actors who play career-defining roles have a certain liking for the character that brought them into the spotlight. But that doesn't have to be the case, and some Hollywood stars have been candid about why they dislike the iconic on-screen characters they're known for.

While legendary stars like Harrison Ford and Sean Connery have spoken about the roles they didn't like in the past, new actors have followed suit and shared their honest thoughts in interviews.

Here's a list of actors who shared their discomfort with portraying the roles that made them famous.

Rege-Jean Page

Rege-Jean Page, who gained popularity with Netflix series, "Bridgerton," opened up about how he is glad he doesn't have to play Simon Basset's character after the first season. Speaking with Variety last month, the actor called his character "horrific" and noted that the character wasn't really always a nice person.

Tyler Perry

Tyler Perry portrays the titular character of an elderly grandmother, Madea, in the Netflix movie, "A Madea Homecoming," which was dropped earlier this year. Ahead of the movie's release, the actor was asked about the character and he said, "My hand to God. I hated the costume, the wig, all of it," LEVEL reported. Here's a glimpse of his look:

Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig did love playing James Bond but not every time. Especially, the last few movies before taking retirement from the character. The actor was asked in 2015 if he'd like to do another Bond movie to which he responded, "Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists." In the same interview with Time Out, he confessed about playing Bond's character, "We're done. All I want to do is move on."

Sally Field

Sally Field, who played Aunt May's character in the Marvel movie "The Amazing Spider-Man," revealed that she wasn't happy with her role. During an interview with Howard Stern in 2017, the actress said, "It's not my kind of movie."

Moreover, she wasn't even fond of her own character as she said, "It's really hard to find a three-dimensional character in it, and you work it as much as you can, but you can't put 10 pounds of sh-t in a five-pound bag." Here's a glimpse of her character:

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus, who played Hannah Montana's character in the series of the same name, shared how the character caused her body dysmorphia. Earlier this year, the actress shared that character, where she played a teen girl who was secretly a rockstar, gave her an identity crisis.

"You've got, like, millions of fans, you're the biggest star in the world, and then the concept was that when I looked like myself, when I didn't have the wig on anymore, no one cared about me, I wasn't a star anymore," she said.
