As an actor, you have to be adept on taking on various personalities, motivations, and even looks for different parts. But certain stars still deal with the recognition that comes with playing an iconic role—and some of them don't love that. Whether they hated their character or just hated the fame that came with it, take a look at the stars who definitely see their roles as a blessing, but sometimes also a curse.

ALLISON WILLIAMS WOULD BE DRIVEN CRAZY BY MARNIE IRL
"Marnie would drive me crazy if we were friends in real life," Williams told BuzzFeed. "But I have to put that out of my head in order to play her. Like, sleeping with Elijah (Andrew Rannells) is crazy, sleeping with Ray (Alex Karpovsky) is crazy, furiously hitting on Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) when he mentions his girlfriend in their first conversation is crazy; but I have to be on the couch with her and Elijah hoping they fuck, I have to be in that apartment with Ray kinda wanting it to happen, and I have to support her quest for Desi." But the thing Williams' struggled with most was Marnie's decision to sleep with artist Booth Jonathan (Jorma Taccone) in season 2 of Girls. "I was fighting that the whole time as Allison," she says, with a sigh. "I did not want her to go down that road. I thought Marnie was better than that, but she wasn't, so I had to be okay with it too. I had to believe Booth was a genius when I walked out of that TV tower, whereas I, as Allison, couldn't stop thinking, It puts the lotion on its skin."
ROBERT PATTINSON HATES EDWARD AND 'TWILIGHT' IN GENERAL
Robert Pattinson hates Twilight, hates Edward, and hates how everyone likes both. (P.S. There's even a Tumblr devoted to his interviews where he has to talk about Twilight, and ultimately makes fun of it.) Perhaps the best quote: "He's the most ridiculous person...the more I read the script, the more I hated this guy...Plus, he's a 108 year-old virgin so he's obviously got some issues there."
