Sam Worthington has said he regrets certain career decisions after winning the lead role in avatar.
The Aussie star was brought out of obscurity to play Jake Sully in James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster, which was followed by several Hollywood roles.
One such figure was Perseus in the 2010s battle of the titans. Worthington returned to play the character again in the sequel Wrath of the Titanswhich was released in 2012.
Worthington doesn’t look back fondly on the experience, however, and in one instance admits he made the situation quite difficult himself.
“You can’t create a character if there’s nothing there,” Worthington said in a new interview. “That was the problem with the Clash movies.”
He said diversity: “You got new pages every day, and it’s too complicated. The films I did right after that avatar were great big spectacles, but I should have looked for films that dig a little deeper into the human condition.
“I bored myself with what I was doing. And if I bore myself, I’m sure I’ll bore the audience.”
Worthington says that prior to filming the sequel, he gave up the gym and “developed a father body” to reflect Perseus’ lifestyle changes in the film.
“I saw it as if Perseus was half god and half father, and he had decided that he didn’t want the god part anymore,” he said, adding, “So I decided to develop a father body, and that would.” I don’t care how I looked.
“Of course, that’s contrary to what a studio wants when they’re paying X dollars to make a film about a chiseled hero.”

He said that his “arrogance collided with the studio and the director’s vision and it became a terrible battle.”
“I could have handled things differently instead of showing up on day one with a big belly,” he said.
Elsewhere, he also explained how he lost the role of James Bond to Daniel Craig.
The actor whose recent credits include TV shows Under the banner of heavencan currently be seen in Avatar: The Way of WaterCameron’s first sequel since the 2009 blockbuster.
