Stars Embarrassing First Films
Madonna - A Certain Sacrifice
Released after Madonna rose to fame, and notorious due to the fact that Madge appears topless in two scenes, this was a forgettable thriller made in 1979, involving prostitutes and Satanic sacrifices. And it was as bad as it sounds!
Arnold Schwarzenegger - Hercules in New York
At 22 years of age, former bodybuilder Arnie starred in this badly made 1969 comedy about Ancient Greek hero Hercules who suddenly finds himself plonked into modern day New York city! It was all Greek to Arnie!
Jim Carrey - Earth Girls Are Easy
Jim Carrey’s first film was this 1988 musical comedy co-starring Geena Davis & Jeff Goldblum about three sex-starved aliens who crash land into Geena Davis back garden. Must have seemed like a good idea at the time...
Clint Eastwood - Revenge Of The Creature
He'd go on to play western heroes and rogue cops like Dirty Harry but Clint Eastwood's movie debut saw him in this weak 1955 sci-fi in a minor role as a lab technician named Jennings.
Sylvester Stallone - The Party At Kitty And Stud’s
The man who brought Rocky Balboa and Rambo to the screen, started his big-screen life in this 1970 softcore porn flick - later re-released as The Italian Stallion to cash in on Sly's fame. He earned $200 for 2 days' work.
Courteney Cox - Masters Of The Universe
Friends TV star Courteney Cox made her cinematic debut in this 1987 superhero 'epic' which saw He-Man rescuing an Earth Girl (Cox) from the clutches of Skeletor after she unkowingly found the 'Cosmic Key.' Sadly it wasn't her cosmic key to success, yet!
Nicole Kidman - BMX Bandits
In her first screen role Nicole Kidman starred in this bike-based 1983 thriller as one of a trio of teenagers who become entangled with some bank robbers after they discover a box full of walkie-talkies that can pick up on police radio frequencies. Sadly the cinema-going public weren't on the same wavelength...
Jodie Foster - The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane
Jodie Foster was already an established child star in various roles, including Freaky Friday, Bugsy Malone and Scorsese's Taxi Driver when this little known 1976 movie came along starring Foster as a child whose parents divorce and as a result is hidden away by her father so her mother can't gain custody.
Jack Nicholson - Cry Baby Killer
Hollywood 'ledge' Jack Nicholson made his screen debut as a young delinquent with a panic attack problem in this 1958 movie that only resurfaced on DVD in 2006, which gives you a clue to its quality.
Tom Cruise - Endless Love
Featuring the hit of the same name by Diana Ross & Lionel Ritchie, Cruise had a minor, thankfully forgettable role in this debut before going on to find mega stardom in films such as Risky Business and Top Gun.
