The overwhelmingly unsuccessful FIFA film United Passions has received its fair share of bad press, poor reviews and financial failure.
With Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini banned from football-related activity on Monday, per BBC Sport, and the £17 million film making just $918 in cinemas before being pulled, per the Guardian, the movie could have done without damning criticism from its main actor.
But Englishman Tim Roth, who played Blatter, told a Reddit Ask Me Anything (via Harry Sherlock of Goal.com) that he hated his role in the lowest-grossing film in U.S. history, and he only did it for the money.
"The film is awful (can't say that because I haven't seen it)," he said. "I hated doing it, it was the wrong film for the right reasons."
"I had two kids in college so I had to make a decision and it was probably poorly judged, but once you make that decision you have to follow through," he continued. "It's a hard road, being in something you don't want to do, but I'm glad I did it for my family."
