15 Times Actors Accidentally Spoiled Their Own Projects


It’s harder to keep it all under wraps than you’d think.

It’s so fun to see actors excited and passionate about their upcoming projects, especially when they’re ready to share them with the rest of the world.

On occasion, that excitement can spill over and before you know it, spoilers slip out.

Sometimes, it’s not that big of a deal and it goes relatively under the radar. In this day and age, it tends to blow up a bit bigger though.

Most people only slip up once or twice, but some actors have reputations as serial offenders. Here are the best of both.

1.

Tom Holland, spoiler-in-chief, has reportedly had information restricted from him for fear he might slip up during a press tour.

“This whole journey of him going to become the king,” Momoa said, without realizing what he’d said. “I think the last, last frame of this movie of this movie, you’re gonna see him actually become what he’s destined to be.”
