Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt might have bonded over these embarrassing early films! They snagged two of the spots on this list of terrible roles from the early careers of A-list actors.

5. Brad Pitt: Cutting Class (1989) — Brad wanted this horror flick "wiped off his resume"! At the time, the cutie was a fresh-faced 25-year-old with "big goals." Fortunately, he'd eventually end up achieving them… but not before filming this '80s treasure.

4. Angelina Jolie: Cyborg 2 (1993) — Angelina Jolie was 17 years old when she filmed a super-awkward topless sex scene in this sci-fi flop, compounded by terrible dialogue. "After I saw it, I went home sick," Angie would later tell the New York Times.

3. Kate Winslet: A Kid in King Arthur's Court (1995) — Bonus: Daniel Craig with a bowl cut.

2. Sandra Bullock: Fire on the Amazon (1993) — The Gravity actress' semi-nude sex scene in this '90s flick was so awkward to film that she and her co-star had to needed a little help from tequila to get through it.

1. George Clooney: Return to Horror High (1985) — George's mullet is the real star of this film.

To see clips from all these films — including an honorable mention for a 1985 Johnny Depp-starring film grossing a mere $300,000 — watch the video above!
