25 famous co-stars who didn't get along in real life


25 famous co-stars who didn’t get along in real life

Even when they were all loved-up onscreen

By Kayleigh Roberts  September 18th, 2017

If you saw the PDA that the Big Little Lies cast shared at the recently concluded Emmy Awards, you’d be forgiven for thinking that actors are just having the time of their lives on set. Co-stars describe each other as a second kind of family, some of them even end up falling in love.

But often enough, famous onscreen relationships quickly disintegrate when the cameras stop rolling. Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan famously struggled to complete the shooting of their iconic film, Jab We Met, since the couple had broken up half-way through the filming. Which is why if you’ve been holding your breath waiting for a sequel, we suggest moving on to another dream. Game Of Thrones may be currently beset with icy monsters, but that’s nothing compared to the cold vibes shared by Lena Headey and Jerome Flynn. The former couple have never shared screen space, and even the NIght’s King can’t make that happen. 

Here are some famous co-stars who infamously didn’t get along behind-the-scenes.

25 famous co-stars who didn’t get along

Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn

Gosling and McAdams had red-hot chemistry in 2004's The Notebook and it eventually translated into a real-life romance. But, early in their time working together, the co-stars couldn't stand one another. At one point, things got so bad that Gosling asked the director if they could bring in another actress for him to read against for his scenes.

"Maybe I'm not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not," director Nick Cassavetes explained. "And Ryan came to me, and there's 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, 'Nick come here.' And he's doing a scene with Rachel and he says, 'Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off camera with me?' I said, 'What?' He says, 'I can't. I can't do it with her. I'm just not getting anything from this.'"

Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion

Before Castle came to an end, the off-camera relationship of its leads was notoriously tense. "Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion completely despise each other," a source told Us Weekly. "They will not speak when they are off set, and this has been going on for seasons now."

Will Smith and Janet Hubert

Smith and his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air co-star Janet Hubert had an infamously strained working relationship, which ultimately led to her character being recast in Season 4. Hubert has said she would never reprise the role for a reunion show.

NBC

 

 

Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross

Teri Hatcher reportedly didn't get along with her Desperate Housewives co-stars (Eva Longoria called her a "loner"), but things were especially tense with Cross.

ABC

Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson

Though rumours that the actors outright hated each other behind-the-scenes don't seem to be true (thankfully), Luke and Lorelai's onscreen chemistry didn't translate to an awesome relationship off-camera. "It's fine," Graham explained to TV Guide when asked about her relationship with Patterson. "I think these characters have great chemistry and that does mirror our chemistry as people. We're not intimates."

When the reporter asked if they were "best friends," she gave a quick and definitive "no" as her answer.

WARNER BROS. TELEVISION

 

Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano

Doherty faced co-star drama again on the set of her WB series, Charmed. After several reports of behind-the-scenes drama with Alyssa Milano, Dohery left the series after Season 3. "There was too much drama on the set and not enough passion for the work," Doherty explained in an interview with Entertainment Tonight about her departure from the series. "I'm 30 years old and I don't have time for drama in my life anymore."

The co-stars have since made amends, however. In 2017, Milano told E! that they were in regular contact. "Shannen and I talk a lot on Twitter via [direct messenger] and I spoke to her maybe two or three days ago," she said. "She was on vacation and we decided that we're going to get together. That date has not been set yet."

SPELLING TELEVISION

Blake Lively and Leighton Meester

The Gossip Girl co-stars reportedly had a strained relationship behind-the-scenes. Sources attributed the tension to long working days on set.

THE CW

Jerome Flynn and Lena Headey

Despite having ample opportunity (and good plot reasons) to have met in Westeros, Flynn and Headey's Game of Thrones characters, Bronn and Cersei, have conspicuously never shared the screen. Why? Sources have said that the former real-life couple aren't on speaking terms and refuse to work together.

"Jerome and Lena aren't on speaking terms any more and they are never in the same room at the same time," a source told The Telegraph in 2014. "It's a pity because they appeared to have patched things up for a while, but now the word is they should be kept apart at all costs."

HBO

Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush

In the case of One Tree Hill co-stars Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush, love came first and then came the on-set awkwardness. The co-stars married in April 2005 and separated just a few months later, in September 2005. They both continued as series regulars through 2009.

THE WB

Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio

While filming 1996's Romeo+Juliet, Danes and DiCaprio reportedly didn't get along on set. According to reports, DiCaprio's habit of pranking the cast and crew annoyed Danes and he thought she was too "uptight."

20TH CENTURY FOX

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams

Gosling and McAdams had red-hot chemistry in 2004's The Notebook and it eventually translated into a real-life romance. But, early in their time working together, the co-stars couldn't stand one another. At one point, things got so bad that Gosling asked the director if they could bring in another actress for him to read against for his scenes.

"Maybe I'm not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not," director Nick Cassavetes explained. "And Ryan came to me, and there's 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, 'Nick come here.' And he's doing a scene with Rachel and he says, 'Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off camera with me?' I said, 'What?' He says, 'I can't. I can't do it with her. I'm just not getting anything from this.'"

Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall

Rumors swirled that the two Sex And The City actresses weren't great friends in real life, with claims that Cattrall had become upset when she learned that Parker earned more than her costars.

In November 2009, Parker publicly denied the feud, however, telling ELLE, "I don't think anybody wants to believe that I love Kim. I adore her. I wouldn't have done the movie without her."

HBO

Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp

The actors reportedly didn't hit it off on the set of their 2010 film, The Tourist.

"Their chemistry was supposed to fly off the charts, but in private, they're not getting along. She was disappointed that he didn't get in better shape for the role and that he didn't want to cut his hair. Johnny retreats to his own trailer until he's called out again. He think she's really full of herself," sources said.

COLUMBIA PICTURES

Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande

When their Nickelodeon show, Victorious, was cancelled, Grande took to social media to subtly point blame at her former co-star.

"Sweetheart the only reason Victorious ended is because 1 girl didn't want to do it," Grande wrote. "She chose to do a solo tour instead of a cast tour. If we had done a cast tour Nickelodeon would have ordered another season of Victorious while Sam and Cat filmed simultaneously but she chose otherwise. I'm sick of this bs."

NICKELODEON

Lea Michele and Naya Rivera

In her memoir, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up, Rivera addressed her long-rumoured feud with Glee co-star Lea Michele. "One of the Glee writers once said that Lea and I were like two sides of the same battery and that about sums us up," Rivera wrote. "We are both strong willed and competitive—not just with each other but with everyone—and that's not a good mixture."

FOX

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny

Familiarity breeds contempt. Duchovny admitted that off set, the two couldn't stand each other and barely hung out, even though fans shipped the two since the season began.

America Ferrera and Lindsay Lohan

When Lohan guest-starred on Ferrera's ABC hit Ugly Betty, the actresses reportedly didn't get along. There were even rumours that Ferrera lobbied to have Lohan's arc cut short.

ABC

Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj

The pop superstars infamously butted heads when they served as judges together on American Idol.

"Mariah has been saying little things to jab at Nicki from day one of shooting," a source told People of the feud. "Mariah doesn't think Nicki can sing and doesn't think she should be judging folks. Nicki has been taking all of the jabs, but on this particular day she lost it."

Joan Crawford and Bette Davis

Crawford and Davis' feud on the set of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? was so infamous that it was the subject of the first season of Ryan Murphy's anthology series Feud.

WARNER BROS.

 

Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth

Gosling and McAdams had red-hot chemistry in 2004's The Notebook and it eventually translated into a real-life romance. But, early in their time working together, the co-stars couldn't stand one another. At one point, things got so bad that Gosling asked the director if they could bring in another actress for him to read against for his scenes.

"And Ryan came to me, and there's 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, 'Nick come here.'

Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif

''It will never happen again''. said Katrina Kaif in an interview while promoting her last movie, Jagga Jasoos, with Ranbir Kapoor. When the actors called off their relationship after almost six years, the film was beset with rumours of numerous delays and on-set friction. The actors finally completed their professional commitment, even presenting a united public face during the film's promotional schedule, but the chances of watching their crackling chemistry again on-screen are slim to none.

Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor

The Jab We Met couple were part of the iconic on-screen pairings of all time, but what the movie didn't betray was the fact that they had parted ways half-way through filming, with Kareena Kapoor moving on to date, and eventually marry, Saif Ali Khan. It was rumoured that they had decided not to work together after their break-up. Recently, they were both cast in Udta Punjab, but didn't have any scenes together. When asked about a possible sequel to their blockbuster romantic comedy, Shahid said"If it was to happen, then it would have happened earlier. I think Imtiaz Ali has moved on."

Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Kapoor

"No, I will not work with Kareena again. because you either get along with people or you don't," Bipasha Basu once declared, adding, "I believe that if you get along with people off-screen, you gel with them on screen. I didn't have any interaction with her, so I don't know.'' After having worked together in the 2001 thriller Ajnabee, Bipasha and Kareena have chosen not to share screen space ever since.
