CELEBRITY Curiosities

It seems everyone was talking about the 'Succession' series finale in May, but one voice was largely absent: that of Brian Cox, who starred on the show as Logan Roy. Cox recently told the BBC that he hasn't seen the episode.

“I’ve never liked watching myself, for a start,” the actor explained. But there was something to do with this show in particular that put him off as well: “Because of what happened to Logan, I’ve been disinclined to watch.” Fans of the show will know exactly what happened to Logan, and Cox added that he guessed in the end Logan still won, despite his untimely fate. He said he heard what happens in the finale and was seemingly satisfied with it, but he still had no plans to watch it. “It’s a strange situation," he said. "I don’t cling on to things. When it’s over, it’s over, and I go on.”

You might think that most actors like to watch their own work, even if only to review their performances, learn from their mistakes, and become better professionals. Well, while this might be true for many actors, not every single one of them likes to revisit their reel. In fact, many stars refuse to do so.

Click through this gallery to see why that might soon change for the actor, and find out which other big names in Hollywood don't watch their own movies and shows—and why.
