Why would a famous actor want to be uncredited in a movie?

I'm watching Oceans Eleven, and I see that Don Cheadle is uncredited for his role as Basher, even though Basher is at least as important as the other non-major co-conspirators.
Why would he be uncredited? One Google answer was that he requested it ... why would an actor request that? It's not like people don't recognize him ... and don't the Actors Equity rules require you to be in the credits in order to get paid properly?
Clearly I know nothing about the entertainment industry. Somebody school me.
