15 Celebrities Who Pushed to Get Things Done Like The Way They Wanted

When you’re A star celebrity, you don’t need to hold yourself to doing what you’re told. If you don’t like your lines, or your character’s attributes, or whatever, you don’t have to put up with it — you can make some calls and get that shit changed. Of course, this power has to be wielded responsibly — as Spider-Man says, the higher you climb a wall, the harder you fall or something like this not really sure. Check out some of the most significant examples.

CRACKED COM The Mummy Tom Cruise made the movie about himself. Cruise took complete creative control, making his own part bigger, to the detriment of the titular mummy. Also, turning his character into the mummy at the end? That was his idea, too.

New York, New Yark Robert De Niro caused the movie's iconic theme to exist. New York City owes its unofficial anthem to De Niro's meddling. He found the intended song too weak, and pretty much embarrassed director Martin Scorsese into requesting: a new one.

Air Force Dne Glenn Close wouldn't cry. Vice President Bennett was scripted to have a breakdown and cry- but Close said no to that. I thought we'd be doing women a disfavor if we had that cliche, she has said.

Cool World Kim Basinger made the movie PG-13. Director Ralph Bakshi was already unhappy with his horror script being rewritten- and then (according to him) Basinger said that she wanted the movie to be shown to sick children in hospitals, and the producer sided with her.

Batman/ The Green Hornet Bruce Lee refused to lose to Robin. During a show crossover, Burt Ward's Robin was supposed to kick Kato's ass - acompletely ridiculous outcome, which pissed Lee off. As a compromise, the fight ended in a draw instead.

Star Wars Harrison Ford saved Han Solo from looking goofy AF Han is a e-collar character- maybe that's why his original outfit included a literal blue Peter Pan collar. Luckily, Ford stood his ground and refused to wear that silly crap. CRACKED.COM

Shrek Mike Myers insisted on re-doing all his lines. Myers had already done his job, when he decided that Shrek should have a Scottish accent. DreamWorks obliged, and Myers re-recorded his dialogue- - at a total cost of $4 million.

Scooby-Doo Casey Kasem made Shaggy a vegetarian. Kasem, an avowed vegetarian, quit voicing Shaggy when he was asked to play him for a Burger King commercial. He only agreed to return to the role if Shaggy was made a veggie as well.

Clash of the Titans Sam Worthington had the mechanical owl banished. Worthington really hated Bubo the owl, a popular character in the 1981 movie, and had it written out, claiming that it would ruin his career. (The movie did that anyway helped by all the other changes he demanded).

Miami Vice Jamie Foxx forced the ending to be changed. After shooting in the Dominican Republic turned out to be too dangerous, Foxx refused to leave the U.S. again- SO the planned ending to be shot in Paraguay had to be scrapped.

Charlie's Angels Crispin Glover made his character a mute. Glover was appalled at how awful his lines were- SO he just refused to say them. He requested that his character be made a mute, and it was granted.

The Departed Jack Nicholson demanded to be a Sex beast. To get Nicholson on board, his character was pretty much made bespoke for him - -including lots of shtupping, as he said that was important. However, all but a few seconds of sex was cut.

Wanted Angelina Jolie had Fox shoot herself. Jolie didn't want her character to get away with murdering SO many innocent people - -SO she had the script rewritten, SO she'd shoot herself after learning the truth about her job.

Gone Girl Ben Affleck shut down production over a hat. Being a huge Red Sox fan, Affleck refused to wear a Yankees cap for a scene. As director David Fincher wouldn't back down either, shooting stopped until a compromise was reached (that compromise being a Mets hat).

Star Trek: The Next Ceneration Patrick Stewart got Captain Picard laid. Stewart kept complaining that Picard never got any f-ing and f-ing (fighting and fornicating) - so they gave him the Season 3 episode Captain's Holiday, where he engages in both.
