When we see these co-stars in their movies and shows, it’s no doubt that their characters have some major chemistry. Sometimes they’re friends and sometimes they are lovers. It’s common to see them sharing a kiss, a handshake, or a hug. But off the screen, the story is totally different: they actually can’t stand each other.
Despite their visible on-set chemistry, these famous co-stars just cannot seem to get along in the real world. A lot of their falling-outs end in screaming matches. Some even end in blows. In the coming pages, we’ll take you through a tour of the most drama-fraught, bad vibe relationships of celebrities that worked together. But be warned – it ain’t pretty.
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Actress Janet Hubert Says Her Feud With Will Smith Damaged Her Career
The bitter feud between Will Smith and Janet Hubert (who played Aunt Viv) from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air started back in 1993. What happened? And why didn’t they get along? Of course, the usual euphemism is cited: “creative differences.” Hubert felt that she was already an experienced actress and that she didn’t need to be subordinate to young and fresh Will Smith, who was just starting his showbiz career.
Hubert once said, “I’ve been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.” Years later, however, Smith revealed that some of the blame falls on him. Hubert, who left the show following the feud, was pregnant and going through a hard time at home. And Smith was just generally being mean. Just recently, in November 2020, they made up. But Hubert does say the feud hurt her career.
Clinton Kelly Says He Feels “Slapped in the Face” By His What Not to Wear Co-Host
What Not to Wear fans were traumatized in 2017 when Clinton Kelly revealed that his co-host, Stacy London blocked him on Twitter. Instantly, he was bombarded with media outlets on their knees begging for interviews and pleading with him to spill the tea. It’s a little confusing cause on the one hand it seems like London and Kelly have major beef, but on the other hand, Kelly himself says there’s no tea to spill.
Tea or no alleged tea, Kelly has opened about animosity between him and London in his memoir. He wrote “There’s a part of me that will love Stacy London forever, and a part of me that would be just fine if I never saw her again for the rest of my life.” But when the hosts were asked what’s the real reason they clash, they both said some version of “we were just together in a close environment for too long and fights are bound to happen.”
Meryl Streep Says That Dustin Hoffman Was Overstepping When He Slapped Her in Kramer vs. Kramer
It’s true that in this photo, taken from a scene from Oscar-winning film Kramer vs. Kramer, Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman look like they’re in love. But in real life, things couldn’t be farther from that. They have some major issues. As the 1979 blockbuster was in production, there was one physical scene in which Hoffman took the “creative liberty” to slap Streep in the face. It was totally unplanned.
Streep acknowledges that physical scenes can be tricky, but she also said, “this was my first movie, and it was my first take in my first movie, and he just slapped me. And you see it in the movie. It was overstepping.” Hoffman has said that due to his real-life divorce from his wife at the time, he snapped and his anger manifested towards his co-star. Things haven’t been right between Streep and Hoffman since.
Marlon Brando Accused Sophia Loren of Having Bad Breath When Shooting The Countess of Hong Kong
During the filming of the 1967 film The Countess of Hong Kong, Charlie Chaplain, the director of the movie, had to work hard to calm things down between his two star actors. Apparently, the first time Brando ever met Loren, he walked into her room, took a look around, saw her paintings on the wall and said “You’re sick. Emotionally disturbed. You should see a psychiatrist.”
The acrimony continued: when they had their first kiss scene, Brando apparently told Loren she had long nose hairs. And he allegedly said that due to all the Italian food she ate, her breath “smelled like a dinosaur’s.” Yikes. Needless to say that these two on-set lovers were anything but lovey-dovey in real life. Why was Brando so mean to Loren? Well, no one really knows, but we know it wasn’t uncommon for him to be unkind to women.
Ahsley Tisdale Says She and Lucas Grabeel “Hated Each Other” on the Set of High School Musical
High School Musical, which came out in 2006, was full of optimism, smiles, and warmth. But behind the scenes things weren’t as warm and fuzzy. Two of the prominent actors, Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel, who played Sharpay and Ryan Evans just could not get along. Over a decade after the film’s release, they opened about the anger and indignation they had toward each other during the moviemaking process.
Tisdale said, “We were not close… We were not good friends. We hated each other.” Grabeel claims that a good deal of their beef was because Tisdale was super obnoxious. He says right before they auditioned, Tisdale insited on giving him a bunch of unsolicited pointers and critique. “Who is this girl telling me how to do my own audition?” he wondered. These days, though, they seem to have reconciled to some degree.
Rumors Have Been Going Around that the 50 Shades of Grey Stars Can’t Stand Each Other
When it comes to the actors that bring bring to life the tumultuous relationship between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the 50 Shades of Grey franchise, it really seems like there are 50 shades of truth. For years, all sorts of rumors have been circulating about how Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan hate each other. It’s kind of funny because though their characters’ connection is a lot of things, it’s not hate.
For this one, you just have to look at the evidence. Despite the widespread rumors, it looks like Johnson and Dornan do not really have a problem with each other. Johnson said, “[When filming] There were no inhibitions, and it was very honest, very trusting. But I mean, what a gamble! What if he had turned out to be a total d**k?” So it seems that all is ok. But still, sometimes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
One Tree Hill Stars Are Lovers on Set But Divorced in Real Life
Fans of One Tree Hill in the noughties went for an emotional roller coaster when Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush, who were romantically involved in the show and in real life, divorced. This happened just a few short months after they got hitched. Whoa, talk about awkward vibes with your co-worker.
They were very young, only in their early 20s when they married. Bush said, “It was not a thing I actually really wanted to do.” She said she felt pressured into the marriage with Murray, her ex on-and-off-set lover. Murray has since stated that these claims are “ludicrous.” Whatever went down, things weren’t the same between the two co-stars.
Miley Cyrus and Emily Osment Were Besties on the Set of Hannah Montana But Enemies in Real Life
Miley Cyrus and Emily Osment definitely know how to put on a show. In Hannah Montana, their characters were the best of besties. Their on-screen friendship was convincing enough because no one suspected that behind the scenes they had major friction. In her memoir, Mile to Go, Cyrus opened up about the bad vibes between her and co-star.
“Emily and I tried to be friends, we really did, but it always ended in a fight,” Cyrus said. It’s not that they had some major blowout, but they worked so closely together for so long that they just ended up getting up on each other’s nerves. And it got to a point where on-stage they were best friends, and then as soon as they stepped off the set, they pretty much became enemies.
Debbie Reynolds Felt Like Her First Kiss Scene in Singin’ in the Rain With Gene Kelly Was ‘an Assault’
A lot of the warm energy in Singin’ in the Rain was made to look real thanks to Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly. As the below photo reminds us, Reynolds’s and Kelly’s characters were love birds. But when the cameras weren’t rolling, the love was nowhere to be found. And it seems that the two never did manage to bury the hatchet afterward.
Reynolds didn’t have that much experience in dance (as opposed to Kelly who did). One scene took them over 15 hours to film and Reynolds’s feet were bleeding by the end of it. Still, she said, Kelly was all criticism and zero encouragement. There was also unpleasantness during their first kiss scene. Reynolds said, “Gene took me tightly in his arms…and shoved his tongue down my throat. ‘Eeew! What was that? It felt like an assault.”
Lauren Graham Has Repeatedly Said That She and Her Gilmore Girls Co-Star Scott Patterson Are “Not Intimates”
There’s not a doubt in anyone’s mind. Lauren Graham’s and Scott Patterson’s characters in Gilmore Girls were deeply in love. But it came to the surprise (and for some, the dismay) that in real life the two co-stars weren’t that into each other. For years, nasty rumors floated around that the two loathed each other. But in reality, it seems to be more benign and it looks like indifference – rather than indignation – is the name of the game.
When asked about their relationship off-set, Graham curtly and non-elaborately said “it’s fine.” End of discussion. In a separate interview, when asked if she and Patterson were best friends for real, she quickly exclaimed “no” and urgently moved onto the next question. She has also repeatedly stated that she and Patterson are “not intimates.” Maybe “hate” is a strong word, but love and friendship seem like kind of distant concepts here.
Jay Mohr Said Filming Picture Perfect With Jennifer Aniston Was “the Worst Experience of His Career”
As the characters of Jay Mohr and Jennifer Aniston brought their characters’ romance to life on the set of Picture Perfect, trouble was brewing off-screen. Jay Mohr says it was a terrible experience and he blames it on the behavior of his co-star. Mohr was surprised he even got the role because some of the other guys that auditioned were really famous.
By this time, 1997, Aniston was already a superstar because of her role in Friends. But from the start, Mohr claims, she was hostile to him. In between takes, when tensions flared, he overheard her saying stuff like “No way! You’ve got to be kidding me.” When the “big woman” of the movie is hatin’ on you, it’s not a good time. He said that he felt so bad sometimes, that he went to his mom’s and cried.
Leighton Meester Thought Blake Lively Was an Egomaniac During the Making of Gossip Girls
Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were incredibly close on-screen in Gossip Girls as they slipped into best friend duo Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf. But in the real world, they did not get along. Sources that have followed their off-screen relationship have blamed the bitterness between the co-stars on the long and arduous days of working side by side.
By all accounts, it seems like they had some pretty bad blood. “Leighton thinks Blake is an egomaniac who views her time on the TV set as slumming,” said one source. When fans were perplexed and reached out to Lively’s publicist, she didn’t sugarcoat the situation. “Blake and Leighton have never been best friends, and never professed to be,” she said.
William Shatner and George Takei Have Been in a Harsh Feud Since Their Days on Star Trek
Onboard the USS Enterprise in Star Trek, Captain Kirk and Hikaru Sulu shared a blazingly strong camaraderie but on planet Earth in reality, the actors behind the iconic spacemen could not stand each other. In the years since they starred together, each one has done his share of bashing the other. George Takei has said that William Shatner is extremely self-centered.
Takei also does not appreciate that Shatner has appeared on shows and roasted him over the years. They never got along during the filming. “All that is bile. He’s had that same kind of relationship with everybody,” Shatner said about his co-star. “…it’s so painfully obvious that there’s a psychosis there,” he added. Today, they still don’t get along. Their latest heated exchange was in August 2020.
Naya Rivera and Lea Michele Were Too Competitive to Get Along With Each Other While Filming Glee
Maybe it says something about how good the late Naya Rivera and her Glee co-star Lea Michele are at acting. Though their characters were tight in the show, their relationship was a train wreck behind the scenes. They often clashed and the tension was palpable. The problem was inherent in their personalities.
Both actresses are very strong-willed and highly competitive. So it’s not hard to see how two people with these traits can clash. And apparently, Michele is just really hard to work with in general. Other Glee actors have complained that she’s disrespectful to her co-stars and that she should be called out for it. If this is true, we can see why she got on Rivera’s nerves.
Lucy Liu Physically Attacked Bill Murray on the Set of Charlie’s Angels
True, in Charlie’s Angels, Bill Murray’s character is kind of a big brother/father figure to Lucy Liu’s character and the rest of the angels. But in real life, there was no fatherly or brotherly love as they shot Charlie’s Angels. According to Liu, during the shooting of one scene, Murray told her flat-out, “You can’t act.” Sources say she then got furious and started throwing punches.
But according to Murray, the frustration he expressed was due to the lines that Liu had been given. He hated the lines and he claimed Liu also hated the lines, so he asked her how in the world could she agree to say them. This, Murray says, triggered her and she got violent. Murray refused to play in the movie’s sequel. These days, 20 years after the altercation, it seems the two stars have calmed down a bit.
Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer Clashed on the Set of Magic Mike Because of Rent Money and the Silent Treatment
In Magic Mike, the characters of Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer had sort of a mentor-apprentice relationship with tons of good feelings. But off-screen, there was resentment. Years later, Pettyfer stepped forward and took the blame for creating the bad vibes. He said that when he got to the set, he refused to socialize with anyone.
In between scenes, he just sat there in a chair, put in headphones and listened to music, tuning out all his co-workers. This frustrated those working with him. Pettyfer attributes his anti-social ways to how he felt during the filming; insecure in his own skin. With Tatum in particular, tensions were high because Pettyfer owed his friend rent money and failed to pay up. Tatum told him, “Pay the f***ing money. Don’t be a clown.”
Terms of Endearment Co-Stars Debra Singer and Shirley MacLaine Never Got Along Again After a Very Bizarre Incident
Terms of Endearment came out in 1983 and it went on to win an Oscar for Best Picture. Central to the film was the loving mother-daughter relationship between the characters of Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger. But in reality, the two lead actresses could just not get along. Friction between the two was already rubbing them the wrong way, but then something truly strange happened.
In her memoir, MacLaine recounted that on a particularly tense day, Singer turned around, bent down, and purposefully passed gas right in MacLaine’s direction. This was, understandably, the gust that broke the camel’s back. Since the incident, the two never really got along again. Years later, when Singer was asked about it in an interview, she pleaded the 5th, thus confirming MacLaine’s story.
Patrick Dempsey from Grey’s Anatomy and His High Maintenance Requirements Reached a Breaking Point
Sure, the cast of Grey’s Anatomy looked like a close-knit medical team. They were all about brotherhood and sisterhood and working together to save lives. But when they weren’t on-screen, their relationships were pretty horrendous. There’s something shocking to be said about all of the cast and their connections to one another, but Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo were especially at each other’s throats.
Everyone was on each other’s nerves. And as the show progressed, Dempsey became more and more high maintenance. Though Pompeo’s character was in love with Dempsey’s, in real life she couldn’t stand him. Eventually, Dempsey hit some kind of boiling point and his character was shockingly (spoiler alert) killed off. Some have speculated that it’s because of his bad attitude.
Tisha Campbell Filed a Lawsuit Claiming That Martin Lawrence Harassed Her On and Off the Set of Martin
When you watch Martin, it looks clear that the characters of Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell have some major chemistry. But as it turns out, that’s far from the truth. The truth is a lot more vile and sinister. Campbell has repeatedly alleged that Lawrence harassed her. She even filed a lawsuit against him in 1997.
We don’t know all the details because the case has a gag order. But we know that following the fallout from the allegations, Lawrence left the show. Needless to say, the two co-stars were never friends after the fiasco. In interviews since the 1990s, Lawrence has shut down claims that there was ever any harassment, dismissing them as “bulls**t.”
Ryan Gosling Urged the Director of The Notebook to Fire Rachel McAdams Cause He Hated Her
The irony here kills us. The pivotal aspect of The Notebook is the blazing romantic relationship between the characters of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. But in reality, as the film was in production, the two leading actors hated each other. We’re not sure what the source of the acrimony is behind the two fictional lovers, but things got super tense.
At one point, the director even recalled that Gosling came up to him and urged him to fire McAdams. Following that climax, the director held an impromptu therapy session in which the two leading stars screamed at each other. This seems to have worked because afterward, Gosling and McAdams managed to get along decently. Surprisingly, after the movie wrapped up, they even dated on and off for a couple of years.
Teri Hatcher Only Spoke to Marcia Cross and Other Desperate Housewives Co-Actresses Through the Directors
When you watch Desperate Housewives, you think to yourself “Wow, those ladies are such good friends!” But that’s not how things went down outside of the picketed white fence neighborhood of the set. By most accounts, Teri Hatcher, who played Susan (right) was just an awful person to work with. Marcia Cross (left) took it particularly hard and was hurt by how mean Hatcher could be.
After the second season of the show, Hatcher won a Golden Globe. Cross and another co-star, Eva Longoria say that the tension with Hatcher started after that. At some point, when things were sour between Hatcher and the others, Hatcher would not even speak to the rest of the ladies. She only communicated to them via the directors, which other actresses say was both obnoxious and funny.
Golden Girls Stars Bea Arthur and Betty White Had Major Personality Clashes
It came as quite a surprise to fans of Golden Girls that the lead stars’ relationships in real life did not reflect the rock-solid friendships their characters had on the show. The rockiest of them all was that of Bea Arthur and Betty White. There were two main points of turbulence between the two star actresses. First, Arthur didn’t like White’s upbeat, cheery attitude.
Arthur was the buttoned-up type and she took her part very seriously, never stepping out of character. To be fair, this worked for her because her performances are all top-notch. White merrily chit-chatted with people between scenes, even befriending members of the audience. Second, Arthur didn’t like that White won a Golden Globe before the rest of the cast all won Emmys. Despite the tension, White and Arthur interacted cordially.
Harrison Ford Though Sean Young Was Unprofessional on the Set of Blade Runner
You can feel the romantic tension in the air between the characters of Harrison Ford and Sean Young when you watch the original Blade Runner in 1982. But any of the chemistry you see is pure acting because on-set, they were kind of miserable with each other. This might have been exacerbated by the intense working environment created by Ridley Scott, the director.
Some sources say that Young was, well, young, and she was prone to partying a little too hard and breaking character. Meanwhile, Ford was super serious and played his part with a real no-nonsense attitude. So Ford just got kind of fed up with Young messing around too much. The tension between them made the filming experience not so enjoyable. Their famous love scene became to be known on-set as “the hate scene.”
Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth Almost Had a Fist Fight During the Shooting of Beverly Hills 90210
Everyone knows that the drama in Beverly Hills 90210 was intense as can be. But did you know that the drama off-screen was just as crazy? Two of the stars of the hit show – Shannen Doherty (left) and Jennie Garth (right) were big-time bellicose with each other. Others involved in the production attribute their beef to be 14-16 hours together under a tight schedule.
At one point, things even got so heated between the two co-stars that they had to take it outside. They were about to start brawling and the guys had to hold them back. And for the remainder of the original Beverly Hills, the two didn’t manage to get along. Now, decades later, the two seem to be fine and have been able to let bygones be bygones.
Patrick Swayze Says He Hated Working With Jennifer Grey During Dirty Dancing
There’s no denying that the iconic characters of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing had some explosive chemistry. But as we watched them bust move after move and share kiss after kiss, little did we know, that the off-screen vibes weren’t all that great. In fact, Swayze has literally said he hated working with Grey.
Prior to Dirty Dancing, Swayze and Grey worked together on the set of Red Dawn. This is where their tension began. Swayze was always super confident and able to deliver the exact same take time and time again. But Grey, Swayze says, could get into silly moods and end up laughing and causing the production to have to shoot multiple takes. He also didn’t like how she would sometimes break down and cry if someone criticized her.
Ironically, Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair’s Tempers Flaired During the Making of Anger Management
In Anger Management, Charlie Sheen’s and Selma Blair’s characters were romantically involved, but the actors could not stand each other. After agitatedly working together on the show for a while, Sheen snapped (oh, the irony) and offered the producers a brutal ultimatum: either fire Blair or he quits the show. In the end, they let Blair go.
So why were these two co-stars at each other’s throats the whole time? Well, apparently, Sheen is not that easy to work with. Both in this show and in Two and a Half Men, he would often miss critical meetings and table readings. His lax work ethic seems to have gotten under Blair’s skin and she probably made it known. Anyway, after some texts from Sheen dripping with vituperation, Blair and him no longer work together.
Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker Never Managed to Bond on the Set of Star Wars
True, even on-screen in Star Wars, C-3P0 and R2-D2 have a complicated relationship. They bicker quite a bit and are not always on the same page. But at the end of the day, they’re brothers in arms and they have a deep bond. Too bad the actors that play them, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker didn’t share the same closeness.
Years after the filming, Baker (R2-D2) was asked about his relationship with Daniels. He said that they didn’t quite hate each other, but they certainly weren’t friends. He blames this on Daniels’s attitude. “Daniels never really seemed to get along with anyone — it wasn’t just him.” When Baker passed away at age 81 in 2016, Daniels tweeted condolences but many people pointed out that it was not the warmest message.
Ariana Grande Blames Victoria Justice for the Discontinuation of Victorious
Before she was a mega pop star, Ariana Grande played in Victorious. On-screen, she and the eponymous actress, Victoria Justice, were tight. Though it’s never been said out in the open, it seems Justice and Grande have some bad blood. The first clue to their bitterness came in an interview with the Victorious cast. It looked like Justice was a little exasperated by Grande always singing between scenes.
Next, in a series of tweets, Grande strongly alluded to the blame being on Justice for producers deciding to discontinue the show. Also, when Grande was scheduled to play at Coachella, Justice made sure to leave prior to her performance. As of today, Grande has a close relationship with all of her castmates from Victorious except for Justice. Coincidence or major beef?
Freddie Prinze Jr. Said He Hated Every Minute of Working With Kiefer Sutherland on 24
In the 8th season of the hit show 24, Kiefer Sutherland and Freddie Prinze Jr. teamed up to fight terrorism. Obviously, this required a good deal of understanding and teamwork between their characters. In real life, however, the truth is less friendly and team-oriented. Prinze Jr. apparently could not stand working with Sutherland. He said that Sutherland was “the most unprofessional dude in the world.”
We don’t exactly know what rubbed Prinze Jr. the wrong way while working with Sutherland, but we know he hated every minute of it. In fact, he said it almost made him quit acting. As for Sutherland, his publicist released a statement and mentioned “Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.”
Hate Turns Into a Crush for Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio on the Set of Romeo and Juliet
This is irony at its finest. When you watch Rome and Juliet, it’s clear that Claire Danes’s and Leonardo DiCaprio’s characters have some real electricity. After all, Shakespeare’s lovebirds are probably the most famous lovers in all of history. Off-screen, however, the love was not as genuine. DiCaprio was in his early 20s and he already had a reputation for pranking his fellow actors.
Danes did not appreciate the pranks and she though DiCaprio was too immature. For his part, DiCaprio said he thought she was too uptight. So during the filming, there was some major tension between the two. But in a twist of events, Danes later revealed that the tension between them wasn’t all bad. By the end of the filming, she had a little crush on DiCaprio.
For the First Few Years of Filming The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley Got on Each Other’s Nerves
Speaking of blood-sucking, two of the stars of The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley totally did not get along when they were not acting. This contrasts sharply with their loving on-screen connection. For the first few years of filming, they completely clashed.
Paul Wesley says that it’s probably just because they were exhausted all the time and spent too much time together. Unlike a lot of other co-stars in this article, Wesley and Dobrev do have a happy ending. After years of fighting and bickering on the set, they finally managed to settle their “creative differences.” Today, they are friends.
Will & Grace Stars Megan Mullaly and Debra Messing Just Unfollowed Each Other on Social Media
Megan Mullally (right) and Debra Messing (left) are some seriously good actresses because although they’re best buds in Will & Grace, when it comes to real life, it seems like they have a serious rift. Fans of the show probably remember with sadness the poignant absence of Mullaly in the final season of the show. Some have claimed this is because of her falling out with Messing.
In an interview, Mullaly didn’t mention any names but she alluded to the problem being that she was bullied during the filming. “I’ve been bullied – I’m 60 and I’m being bullied right now, so you know it’s a very insidious and dangerous thing and I never want to lose that happy and innocent part of myself…” Also, in what many have taken as a confirmation of the co-stars’ rift, Mullaly and Messing recently unfollowed each other on social media.
Tom Hardy and Charize Theron Went Into Survival Mode During the Filming of Mad Max Cause They Couldn’t Get Along
As the characters of Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron raced across the desert wasteland united in their fight against their enemies, the two co-stars were at war off-stage. Both actors were extremely nervous about taking on their legendary roles, especially Hardy, who was trying to fill Mel Gibson’s shoes (Gibson starred in the original Mad Max). And this made them edgy.
Theron said, “And I think because of my own fear, we were putting up walls to protect ourselves instead of saying to each other, ‘This is scary for you, and it’s scary for me, too. Let’s be nice to each other.’ In a weird way, we were functioning like our characters: Everything was about survival.” According to co-star Zoë Kravitz, Hardy and Theron “didn’t get along.”
Stana Katic Had to Lock Herself in the Dressing to Cry During the Making of Castle
In the case of Castle, art does certainly not mimic reality and reality does not mimic art. In the show, the long-running crime drama, the characters of Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion were in love. Fans were delighted when they got married in the show’s seventh season. But in the real world, the two lead actors would not even speak to each other when they were off-set.
No one knows the full extent of the bad vibes, but most accounts put the blame on Fillion, who had allegedly been “nasty to Stana for a long time.” Things got so bad that sometimes Katic escaped to her dressing room to go cry. Some followers of the show have even claimed that the terrible relationship between the two lead actors is what led producers to rush the ending, leaving fans unsatisfied and disgruntled.
Lindsay Lohan Had to Leave Ugly Betty Early Because She Repeatedly Clashed With the Star Actress
Ugly Betty was a great show and it had lots of guest appearances. But one of them, in particular, was extremely problematic for lead actress America Ferrera; that one Lindsay Lohan. On-screen, of course, Ferrera and Lohan were pals. But behind the scenes, it looks like they loathed each other. Ferrera said that Lohan, who was constantly smoking, would show up with an entourage of people every day.
Ferrera also said that Lohan had eccentric habits, like cutting out pictures of herself from tabloids and that she was prone to trashing the rehearsal room. A source close to Lohan has refuted all these claims and said the problem was that Ferrera was mean to Lohan because she felt like her thunder was being stolen. In any case, Lohan did not complete all the episodes she was scheduled for and decided to leave the production early.
Bette Davis and Joan Crawford Had One of the Longest and Most Bitter Feuds in Hollywood History
Out of all the famous Hollywood feuds that have gone down over the decades, that of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford is a candidate for the most notorious. There’s a lot of info and the feud has been well documented. Let’s have a look at some of the highlights. It started in 1933 when The New York Times saved only a tiny slice of the paper for a review of Davis’s role in Ex-Lady but they devoted several pages to covering Crawford’s divorce.
Then, in 1935, Crawford married Franchot Tone, an actor with whom Davis was madly in love. Next, in 1936, Davis won an Oscar and Joan was unimpressed (and most likely jealous). In 1943, Crawford attempted a truce with Davis but was snuffed. In 1945, Davis turned down a role. Crawford swooped in, took the role (in Mildred Pierce) and went on to win an Oscar for it. The bad blood kept flowing until Joan Crawford’s death in 1977.
The Bitterness Between Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte During the Making of I Love Trouble Ruined Their On-Set Chemistry
People that have seen the 1994 romantic comedy I Love Trouble might notice something odd; the two leads – who are supposed to be total lovebirds – don’t seem to have such great chemistry at all. This is because the actors, Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte reportedly hated each other, thus impacting the on-screen believability of their connection.
According to some sources, Roberts just could not get on board with Nolte’s manliness (toxic masculinity?) and she often gave him a hard time. In response to being derided, Nolte turned his attitude up a couple more notches. The co-stars completely clashed. Directors even had to go to great lengths to accommodate them filming some scenes separetly. And in one intimate scene, Roberts even refused to kiss her co-star.
Power and Jealoust Made Sex and the City Stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall Super Bitter
It came as quite the news to fans of Sex and the City to find out that in real life – in contrast with the show – Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall were far from best friends. In addition to sharing the experience of filming one of the most loved shows on TV, they shared a good deal of animosity. Some sources say it started when Parker was promoted to executive producer, thus receiving a pay raise.
Cattrall tried (seemingly unsuccessfully) to also negotiate for more money. This kind of ticked off some of the other actors and crew. At some point, Parker and Cattrall (and there are pics to prove it) had a fight on the set of the show. When Cattrall’s brother passed away, Parker reached out to offer condolences. But Cattrall told her to save her words and that she didn’t need it. Also, in a long Twitter message, Cattrall really went off on Parker.
After Flashes of Anger and High Salary Demands, Terrence Howard Was Fired from Iron Man
In the first film of the Iron Man franchise, we were all introduced to Marvel Studio’s newest superhero actors. Among them, of course, was Robert Downey Jr. Terrence Howard was also on the roster. Throughout the film, his uptight military character and Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) were super tight. At the end of the film it even was pretty much promised to us that Howard would become War Machine, Iron Man’s sidekick.
But behind the scenes, trouble was already rearing its ugly head. Howard is a self-proclaimed difficult guy to work with. He’s infamous for his hot-headed temper and his refusal to utter certain lines. So he and Downey Jr. clashed big-time. Also, Howard was kind of a big deal in the early noughties. So he demanded a way bigger salary than the other actors. After repeated collisions with cast and crew, Marvel fired him from the franchise.
