Although actors are supposed to be able to play any role, that doesn't mean they will be fond of them all. While some characters may be closer to their real-life personalities, others can be the polar opposite of their values and beliefs. Plus, actors can get tired of these roles, or frustrated that they didn't portray them properly.
The latest to sound in is Shailene Woodley, who has shared that she felt "stuck" on the series 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager.'
“There were a lot of things that were written into the scripts that not just me, but a lot of the cast, disagreed with,” she told Bustle. “There were belief systems that were pushed that were different than my own. Yet legally I was stuck there.”
Why was she stuck there? “I read [three] episodes and I signed a contract for six years.”
