He even tells Esquire magazine
that the negative reviews of After Earth
were more of a blow for him than Wild Wild West
, which made a meager $57 million on a reported $170 million budget. At least After Earth
made a $113 million profit!
"Wild Wild West
was less painful than After Earth
because my son was involved in After Earth
, and I led him into it. That was excruciating," the 46-year-old actor
tells the men's magazine. "That was the most painful failure in my career."
