HER "DISASTROUS" ACTING
Kylie Minogue has made history with her music but her acting has hit a few lows over the years. The pop-star admitted that most of the movies she acted in were "disastrous" including the set of the series she did as a child, which according to the singer "wobbled."
[Minogue's] acting debut was at 11 on the Australian series "Skyways" and she dropped out of school at 17 to pursue a career in acting.
Her acting diss came in 2012 when her latest movie "Holy Motors" was about to hit the cinemas. Many were surprised that the 52-year-old slammed herself rather than promote the movie.
Minogue has been in movies such as "Bio-Dome," "Sample People," and popular movies like "Moulin Rouge." She also co-starred with Claude Van Damme in "Street Fighter."
Before she became the "Princess Of Pop" Minogue was the star of the 80s TV series "Neighbours." She played the character Charlene Robinson alongside the actor Guy Pearce, who played Mike Young.
The pair were both 18 when they started the popular Australian show and Pearce confessed that he believed their acting was bad. The co-stars reunited in 2017 with their appearance in the movie "Swinging Safari."
