Friends On Set, Mortal Enemies In Real Life


Leighton Meester vs. Blake Lively

Both of these actresses shot to stardom thanks to their roles on hit TV show “Gossip Girl”. However, they didn’t exactly enjoy each other’s company during filming. The pair maintained a convincing friendship on screen but offscreen was another matter altogether. In fact, these two couldn’t be more distant in real life if they tried! Rarely did they reach out to each other for anything that wasn’t work-related, and both admit that they never really “clicked”.

Jennie Garth vs. Shannen Doherty

These two “90210” beauties had a pretty rocky relationship, that’s for sure. Whilst they did consider themselves friends, occasionally their insecurities meant that they struggled to get along with each other without feeling resentment. Often, they’d chat like friends who had known each other forever but other times they couldn’t bear to be in the same room! Fortunately, both Shannon and Jennie say they get on much better today. It sounds like these actresses are much more mature these days!

Jennie Garth vs. Shannen Doherty

Claire Danes vs. Leonardo DiCaprio

Whilst the rest of the world seems to have been in love with Leonardo DiCaprio for years, his “Romeo and Juliet” co-star Claire Danes was a little less enthusiastic about him. The pretty actress considered him very childish and grew tired of his prankster antics, which means they never really became friends during filming. It’s a good thing they’re such brilliant actors as they had to play star-crossed lovers on screen. Sparks certainly weren’t flying on-set!

Claire Danes vs. Leonardo DiCaprio

Bill Murray vs. Lucy Liu

Bill Murray was meant to star in “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” but because he and Lucy Liu didn’t get along, he was replaced. We’re putting in gently when we say they didn’t get on. Between takes, Murray would criticize Liu’s acting and their fighting became quite intense. The actors needed to be separated into different corners of the room whilst they verbally attacked each other. It sounds like it was in everyone’s interests that another actor took Bill’s role!

Bill Murray vs. Lucy Liu

Reese Witherspoon vs. Vince Vaughn

Witherspoon’s arguments with Vaughn were mostly a result of creative differences during the filming of “Four Christmases”. She wanted to prepare and practice before a scene whereas Vince liked to jump straight in and ad lib. They were reportedly able to compromise, and she even claims to have had fun working with Vaughn on the movie. However, many people have noticed that the pair go out of their way to avoid each other, which has raised eyebrows.

Reese Witherspoon vs. Vince Vaughn

Marcia Cross vs. Teri Hatcher

Whilst it’s common knowledge that Teri Hatcher wasn’t really friends with anyone on the set of “Desperate Housewives”, she particularly clashed with Marcia Cross. When the ladies went for a photoshoot with Vanity Fair, Cross was angry that Hatcher was getting more of the spotlight than the others and made her feelings known. Eva Longoria once discussed the awkward and uneasy dynamic between the two ladies, explaining that “Teri was just a loner. I don’t know. Me and Marcia and Felicity were a lot closer”.

Marcia Cross vs. Teri Hatcher

Sophia Bush vs. Chad Michael Murray

Unlike most of the co-stars in this article, “One Tree Hill” actors Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray had some genuine chemistry. That’s why they got married! However, it didn’t last, and they divorced within five months, pretty acrimoniously by all accounts. Unfortunately, they had to hold it together on screen and pretend that they hadn’t just endured a nasty divorce. Imagine the tension! Still, these guys are professionals, so we’re sure they made it work for the sake of the show.

Sophia Bush vs. Chad Michael Murray

 

Alyssa Milano vs. Shannen Doherty

The girls looked like they were having the time of their lives on TV show “Charmed” but looks can be deceiving. Doherty is a notorious troublemaker, and we reckon her co-star can probably testify to that! Milano has said that it wasn’t the easiest experience on set, and there are rumors that Shannen left the show as a result of the tension. The good news is, these two have now reconnected and settled their differences.

Alyssa Milano vs. Shannen Doherty

 

Billy Baldwin vs. Sharon Stone

During filming of the 1993 thriller “Sliver”, Stone reportedly enjoyed “torturing” her co-star, just for fun! Her antics included nipping the poor man’s tongue during a kissing scene, leaving him unable to talk for a week. We knew there was a reason we felt so uneasy during the kissing scenes in this movie. The whole thing was just incredibly uneasy for both actor and actress and we reckon they were glad when filming was finished!

Billy Baldwin vs. Sharon Stone

William Shatner vs. George Takei

These two “Star Trek” legends didn’t exactly work in harmony during the filming of the show, and reportedly gave everybody on set a hard time for it! Takei called Shatner “self-centered” and also believed that he wanted to sabotage his role by changing the script. Meanwhile, Shatner has accused his co-star of having “psychosis issues” and claims that he is simply an unhappy individual who was desperate to take his anger out on someone on set.

William Shatner vs. George Takei

Josh Hartnett vs. Harrison Ford

If you love action movies, then chances are you’ve seen the 2003 blockbuster “Hollywood Homicide”. However, if you prefer dramas, then you may well have preferred what went on offscreen between the two leading actors. Ford and Hartnett did not get on at all, approaching each other with an awkward and icy reluctance. It’s reported that Hartnett considered Ford to be too old to connect with, whilst Ford thought Hartnett was little more than a “punk.”

Josh Hartnett vs. Harrison Ford

Rachel McAdams vs. Ryan Gosling

“The Notebook” became a monster hit over a decade ago. But did you know that the film’s two leads Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling hated each other during filming? The pair may have had amazing chemistry on screen, but the Canadian hunk actually wanted his co-star kicked off the movie altogether. Things must have been bad between them! Strangely enough, the pair actually went on to date each other on and off for four years after filming had finished.

Rachel McAdams vs. Ryan Gosling

David Duchovny vs. Gillian Anderson

Mulder and Scully were the perfect duo on the hit TV show “The X-Files”, but the actors who played them didn’t get on quite as well. Duchovny and Anderson just didn’t get on, particularly during the filming of the later seasons. Anderson said, “There were definitely periods when we hated each other. Hate is too strong a word. We didn’t talk for long periods of time. It was intense, and we were both pains in the arse for the other at various times.”

David Duchovny vs. Gillian Anderson

Sarah Jessica Parker vs. Kim Cattrall

These two were closer than close on “Sex & The City”, but offscreen, their relationship was much more fractious. Envy and resentment lurked behind the facade, and according to Cattrall, there was an element of bullying on set. Cattrall is not in contact with the other SATC girls either, saying, “We’ve never been friends. We’ve been colleagues and in some ways that’s a very healthy place to be because then you have a clear line between your professional life and relationship and your personal.”

Sarah Jessica Parker vs. Kim Cattrall

Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Clint Eastwood

We’re sort of breaking the rules here as DiCaprio and Eastwood were actor and director, rather than co-stars. The two clashed violently during the filming of the movie “J. Edgar”, with DiCaprio apparently angered by Eastwood’s refusal to reshoot a lackluster take. Instead of attempting to compromise with his director, DiCaprio became furious and had to leave the set to calm down. Fortunately, the film was completed, despite the pair being at loggerheads throughout the shoot.

Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Clint Eastwood

Bill Murray vs. Harold Ramis

Bill Murray and Harold Ramis were close friends and worked on various films together. But unfortunately, creative differences made things difficult between them during the making of the movie “Groundhog Day”. Although it’s unclear exactly what the issue was, the shoot was clouded in so much ill will that their once close friendship deteriorated completely. It was to be the last collaboration between the two movie legends. They made up in 2014, but sadly Ramis died shortly after.

Bill Murray vs. Harold Ramis

Cybill Shepherd vs. Bruce Willis

These two were a convincing duo in the ‘80s TV show “Moonlighting”, making it through four seasons together. However, things weren’t so rosy offscreen, with Shepherd and Willis bickering often. Some of their disagreements were minor but it was enough to turn the experience sour for them both. Rumor has it that there was tension over Shepherd becoming a mom and Willis launching a movie career. What’s more, there was a serious personality clash going on!

Cybill Shepherd vs. Bruce Willis

Wesley Snipes vs. Everyone

Unlike the rest of the actors in this list, Wesley Snipes didn’t just feud with one or two of his co-stars. His general behavior and air of self-importance meant that he clashed with many people on set. Many say that he caused a toxic filming experience. Apparently, the “Blade: Trinity” actor let his role go to his head, even referring to himself as Blade. He refused to speak with the director via phone or email, preferring to write out notes and send them to him!

Wesley Snipes vs. Everyone

Patrick Swayze vs. Jennifer Grey

In his autobiography, Swayze talked about filming “Dirty Dancing” with Jennifer Grey. But if you were hoping that their on-screen passion bubbled over into real life, you’ll be sadly disappointed. In fact, there was little chemistry between the two and he just didn’t “get” Grey’s fun yet overly emotional personality. It was a fractious relationship which led to friction on set, making filming difficult on occasion. Fortunately, this didn’t affect the outcome of this classic movie!

Patrick Swayze vs. Jennifer Grey

Shia LaBeouf vs. Alec Baldwin

Things didn’t quite go as planned whilst making the Broadway play “Orphans”. Baldwin claims that Shia LeBeouf verbally attacked him, and that’s what led to their bust-up. He says that the “Transformers” star ‘began to sulk’ because Alec hadn’t learned his lines before rehearsals, and that he attacked him in front of everyone. LeBeouf was apparently very difficult to work with and ended up being sacked from the show. He was replaced by Ben Foster.

Shia LaBeouf vs. Alec Baldwin

Robert Shaw vs. Richard Dreyfuss

“Jaws” actors Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss clashed regularly whilst making this classic movie in 1975. The two fought regularly and often teased one another, with Shaw apparently doing much of the teasing. Dreyfuss admits that his co-star often goaded him – usually when he was drunk, which Shaw frequently was. He said, “[Shaw] was a perfect gentleman whenever he was sober. All he needed was one drink and then he turned into a competitive son-of-a-bitch”.

Robert Shaw vs. Richard Dreyfuss

Bea Arthur vs. Betty White

Who could possibly dislike the woman who became America’s coolest grandma? Well, it seems that Bea Arthur wasn’t very fond of her “Golden Girls” co-star. In fact, apparently there wasn’t anything resembling a friendship between the two ladies. There was an underlying tension and occasionally downright hostility between the actresses. The reason for their feud isn’t clear, but at least they were able to get on well enough to film this now legendary TV show.

)

Tom Hardy vs. Shia LaBeouf

Oh, it’s Shia LaBeouf again! The actor got into a bit of a tussle with Tom Hardy whilst filming the highly acclaimed crime drama film “Lawless”. Of course, LaBeouf claimed it was just good fun, but Tom Hardy thought otherwise. He told the media that LaBeouf had “totally knocked him out”. Hmm, we’re not sure we believe him! Tom Hardy is a pretty big guy and we reckon it would take a lot to floor him.

Tom Hardy vs. Shia LaBeouf

Bette Davis vs. Joan Crawford

These two ladies never failed to display their utter disdain for each other whilst filming “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?”. Not only would they regularly insult each other whilst on set, but they would also call their director each night to let them know just how much they disliked their co-star. We feel really sorry for the other actors on the show as we reckon the atmosphere on set must have been very toxic indeed!

Bette Davis vs. Joan Crawford

Jamie Dornan vs. Dakota Johnson

“Fifty Shades of Grey” co-stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson may be madly in love on-screen, but apparently, they’ve been feuding behind the scenes. The chemistry they shared in the movies wasn’t there in real life, with many people saying that they could never tolerate each other. This may be down a personality clash, with one source revealing that whilst Dakota is fun loving and goofy on set, Jamie is more serious at all times.

Jamie Dornan vs. Dakota Johnson

Bjork vs. Lars Von Trier

The relationship between this director and actor/singer is as icy as they come, with Bjork not quite appreciating Lars Von Trier’s work on the 2000 movie “Dancer in the Dark”. Things were so awkward between them that she apparently never wanted to look him in the eye. Fortunately, it didn’t prevent them from making this heartbreakingly classic film. The movie sees the Icelandic musician playing the role of an immigrant factory worker suffering from a degenerative eye condition.

Bjork vs. Lars Von Trier

Charlie Sheen vs. Selma Blair

Selma Blair was fired from “Anger Management” after falling out with Charlie Sheen. Their relationship was complicated and although he was highly attracted to her, his feelings turned from lust to hate when he discovered that she had been criticizing him. As a result, he fired her from the show. And he didn’t do it gently either, as he let her go by text message. What better way to create tension with someone that to sack them by SMS?!

Charlie Sheen vs. Selma Blair

Julia Roberts vs. Nick Nolte

Their characters loved each other in the 1994 rom-com “I Love Trouble”. Sadly, their relationship was much less amicable in reality, with the two disliking each other to such an extent that they had to shoot some scenes separately. Roberts called her co-star “completely disgusting”, whilst he said that she is simply “not a nice person”. Their mutual hatred for each other seems to have resulted in a lack of on-screen chemistry as this movie never really set our screens alight.

Julia Roberts vs. Nick Nolte

Janet Hubert vs. Will Smith

Here’s another story of hostility after a firing. This time, it took place on one of the most popular TV shows of the 1990’s. Janet Hubert played Aunt Viv on “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and blamed Will Smith for the decision. She still harbors a lot of resentment for her former co-star and won’t do any future projects with him unless he says sorry. Well, we can honestly say that the show was never the same once Janet was replaced!

Janet Hubert vs. Will Smith

Sean Young vs. Harrison Ford

The love between these two in the movie Blade Runner is another example of forced romance. It’s a good job they’re such great actors, as while the scenes may have looked real enough, they couldn’t possibly have been colder towards each other on set. Some of their other cast members even referred to the love scenes as “hate scenes”. In the ‘80s, Sean Young had a bad reputation as a difficult co-star, and it may have started on the set of this classic movie.

Sean Young vs. Harrison Ford

Anthony Daniels vs. Kenny Baker

On-screen, the “Star Wars” robots bickered a lot, however, underneath the sly digs, it was clear they were friends. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about their real-life relationship. These actors didn’t care for each other, with Baker finding Daniels insufferable. In 2008, the pair were invited to be interviewed on the show “Bring Back Star Wars”. Baker said, “It depends. If you invite his lordship, the one with the golden balls. If he comes, I won’t be there”.

Anthony Daniels vs. Kenny Baker

Lea Michele vs. Naya Rivera

The “Glee” actresses may appear to be BFFs in this photo, but their real-life relationship was a little more ill-natured. It seems there was a lot of tension on set, with these two actresses at the very heart of it. Their friendship turned sour quickly, and they reportedly tried to make the whole filming experience miserable for each other. Rivera said, “Lea and I definitely weren’t the best of friends, and I doubt we’ll ever sit on her couch and eat kale together again”.

Lea Michele vs. Naya Rivera

Reese Witherspoon vs. Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson was a sparkly vampire in “Twilight”, but sadly that sparkle wasn’t quite there between him and Reese Witherspoon whilst filming “Water for Elephants”. Whilst the pair never erupted in shouting matches or wanted to pummel each other, the whole experience was just uncomfortable for them both. Poor Witherspoon had to endure a series of awkward sex scenes with a bleary-eyed and stuffy-nosed Pattinson. To be fair, it would be difficult to find passion in that!

Reese Witherspoon vs. Robert Pattinson

Ariana Grande vs. Victoria Justice

You might think that Nickelodeon is all sunshine and smiles both on and off screen. However, you’re about to be sadly disappointed. Grande and Justice may have been inseparable on “Victorious”, but this wasn’t the case in real life. The show, which aired from 2010 to 2013, fell through when Justice decided to pursue other opportunities in her career. Fans were disappointed, and Grande used this as an opportunity to turn them against Justice, essentially blaming her for the TV show’s demise.

Ariana Grande vs. Victoria Justice

Jim Carrey vs. Tommy Lee Jones

There are few duos more iconic than Batman and Robin. Certainly not Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones, who famously clashed on the set of “Batman Forever”. The main problem was that Jones just didn’t like Carrey. Not only did he refuse to be around Carrey offset but he also went out his way to make filming difficult. He apparently told him, “I cannot sanction your buffoonery”. Poor Jim, we still think you’re a legend!

Jim Carrey vs. Tommy Lee Jones

Woody Allen vs. Mia Farrow

These two stars were already in the midst of a romantic storm before they began filming the 1992 movie “Husbands and Wives”. The media was speculating like crazy about just what was going on between the couple behind closed doors. As it turned out, Allen had been having an affair. But Farrow had a starring role in the movie and continued shooting even after she found out. As you can imagine, it wasn’t a pleasant experience for anyone!

Woody Allen vs. Mia Farrow

T.R. Knight vs. Patrick Dempsey vs. Isaiah Washington

Here’s a troublesome trio for you. The tense atmosphere on the “Grey’s Anatomy” set began when Washington was fired for his brutal, uncalled for insult targeted at Knight. But there was a lot more going on too. Fists were flying when Dempsey got into a fight with Washington on set. They apparently squared off in a so-called “violent brawl”. Reportedly, Isaiah grabbed his co-star by the throat after arguing about cast members turning up late for work.

T.R. Knight vs. Patrick Dempsey vs. Isaiah Washington

Ashley Judd vs. Jason Patric

These two actors starred in the play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” back in 2003. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing, unfortunately. The pair didn’t get along at all, with Patric being very vocal about his disdain for his co-star. He said, “I didn’t like my leading lady. Ashley is just a lazy and arrogant actress. Let’s just leave it at that.” How charming! We imagine these two won’t be working together again anytime soon.

Ashley Judd vs. Jason Patric

Balthazar Getty Vs. Everyone Else

Yup, here’s another actor who annoyed everyone on set. Getty made a made the laid-back atmosphere on the set of “Brothers and Sisters” feel like a never-ending plod towards nothing. Not only was his performance not good enough but he apparently forgot his lines and never turned up for filming on time. The actor created much tension amongst other members of the cast – tension that didn’t exist before he arrived on the show. Needless to say, he was given his marching orders pretty quickly.

Balthazar Getty Vs. Everyone Else

Tisha Campbell vs. Martin Lawrence

It seems that actors refusing to be on set at the same time as their enemies happens more often than you might imagine. Campbell agreed to return to the set of “Martin” for a one-hour finale despite there being much bad blood between her and Lawrence. However, there was a catch. She’s wasn’t prepared to shoot any scenes with him. We feel sorry for the director who had to deal with these two clashing co-stars!

Tisha Campbell vs. Martin Lawrence

Archie Panjabi vs. Julianna Margulies

Usually, when actors dislike each other, they slap on a fake smile for the cameras and pretend they’re best buddies. But these two stars of the “Good Wife” couldn’t even bear to do that. They always kept a distance from each other to the extent that they refused to be in a single shot together. Eventually, Panjabi made the decision to quit the show as a result of all the animosity. Can’t say we blame her!

Archie Panjabi vs. Julianna Margulies

Marilyn Monroe vs. Tony Curtis

Most men would have given anything to touch lips with the beautiful Marilyn Monroe. However, actor Tony Curtis quickly learned that he was not one of them. He didn’t feel any passion or lust whilst filming with her on the set of “Some Like It Hot”, and even said that kissing her was “like kissing Hitler!” Reportedly, Monroe was a difficult person to be around whilst making the movie, being continually late and ruining scenes.

Marilyn Monroe vs. Tony Curtis

Luke Wilson vs. Kate Beckinsale

Few people are likely to remember the 2007 film “Vacancy”, but we reckon the two people most eager to forget it are Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale. The two butted heads during filming, making the experience difficult for everyone involved. According to Beckinsale, Wilson regularly turned up late and hungover and constantly bragged about all the girls he’d met over the weekend. It certainly sounds as if he was a bit of a diva whilst filming this movie!

Luke Wilson vs. Kate Beckinsale

Debra Ringer and Richard Gere

“An Officer and her Gentleman” actors Debra Ringer and Richard Gere argued like cat and dog both on and off set. Ringer has discussed their feud several times, saying that she was very relieved when it was the movie was finished as the experience was so miserable. The actress was a notoriously difficult actress to work with in the 1980s at the height of her career, which could have something to do with her on-set arguments with Gere!

Debra Ringer and Richard Gere

Angelina Jolie vs. Johnny Depp

Jolie and Depp are Hollywood legends, and so you would think that putting them together on set ought to result in a cinematic masterpiece. As it turned out, these two have zero chemistry, despite being great actors individually. During the filming of “The Tourist”, these movie icons clashed often and are even said to consider each other arrogant. We reckon this pair should stay away from each other when it comes to making movies from now on!

Angelina Jolie vs. Johnny Depp
