10 People Who Hated Their Own Biopics

You would have to be excited to have Hollywood make a movie of your life. But then sometimes the finished product doesn't live up to the expectations of the subject. Some for good reason -they were made to be "the bad guy." Ike Turner was not pleased about the way he was portrayed in What's Love Got To Do With It.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Turner announced his plans to hold a press conference in order to win back his good name and that he would be writing his own autobiography, entitled That’s What Love’s Got to Do With It. “The only time I ever punched Tina with my fist was the last fight we had,” Turner admitted. “I hit her after she kneed me in the chest. Prior to that, our fights, or our little slaps, or whatever they were, were all just about attitude. Me and Tina never fought about other women or about her not keeping house or her not taking care of the kids. It was always because she was looking sad and wouldn't tell me what was wrong with her. She would take that attitude with her on to the stage and that would really depress me. So after the show, I'd end up slapping her or something. But then we'd be okay.”
