Joel Kinnaman has admitted he would've approaching 'Robocop' differently if he was starring in the movie today but didn't want to say much at the time because it was his first big screen US movie as a lead actor
Joel Kinnaman would've had "strong opinions" about "a lot" of decisions made on 'Robocop' if he was starring in the film today.
The 36-year-old actor has hinted he didn't agree with everything that took place while shooting the 2014 movie, but because he hadn't starred as a leading character on a big US motion picture before he didn't want to say too much.
He said: "On 'Robocop' for example, in hindsight, that was my first lead in a big American film and had I got that role today, there was a lot of decisions that were made initially in that project that I would have had very strong opinions about."
The 'Suicide Squad' actor finds it "frustrating" when his films get criticised but insists actors have to become "robust" when their motion pictures are slated because it happens so often.
He added to the Independent: "When it happens, it can be frustrating. You have your hopes that you have a film that you both feel proud of yourself, and that other people will like it. Most importantly, you have to have a film that you feel proud of yourself because that's the part you can control.
"Being an actor, means for 95 per cent of the time you're being told, no that's not right, so you have to be very robust when it comes to criticism."
