Or Michael Caine in, for example, Jaws 4?
I always liked Michael Caine's comments about Jaws IV in interviews:

No matter. As Caine, 77, tells it, he’s never had a big problem doing a turkey so long as the money’s OK, and he’s playing a supporting role and not the lead. “That way you can't be blamed for its failure,” Caine says.

In 1987, Caine missed the chance to accept his Oscar for Hannah and Her Sisters because he was off filming Jaws 4. “I haven’t seen it, but I did see the house it bought for my mother and it was very beautiful,” he says. “They said here’s a million bucks for a week’s work. It’s fine.”
