When I picture two co-stars behind-the-scenes that get along in the movie they're in together, I assume that they are close friends in real life as well. It seems to only make sense. But, even the best of friends can get sick of each other when they're together too much - and, clearly, when you're on set with each other non-stop it can grind the gears of your friendship.
These are some celebrities who gave the illusion that they were happy working together, but who actually did not get along.
1. Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio, Romeo + Juliet
Claire Danes and Leo DiCaprio are two of Hollywood's brightest stars currently, but when they were at a more youthful stage in their careers they didn't really get along. They were co-stars in the modern adaptation of Romeo + Juliet (which was an awesome movie by the way) but the love they shared on camera didn't really seep into life off-camera. Apparently Danes wasn't a fan of DiCaprio goofing off on the job and avoided him whenever she could.
2. Lucy Liu and Bill Murray, Charlie's Angels
Bill Murray doesn't seem like a mean guy - he's a hilarious comedian who has made a name for himself after a long successful career and recent legendarily fun antics. He's blunt, though. He told Lucy Liu she wasn't a good actor, and it certainly annoyed her quite a bit. Murray was replaced with Bernie Mac in the sequel and Liu was happy with that decision.
3. Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy, Lawless
This is definitely one of the weirder ones. Obviously, Shia has proven to be a bit strange (read: awesome) with some of his antics recently and this story backs that up for sure. Apparently it came to blows on set. Hardy told the media that LaBeouf got physical and knocked him out behind-the-scenes. LaBeouf's side of the story is that it was just part of the “brotherly bond” they shared on set. Now, I've heard of brothers getting into fights, but this doesn't seem like one of those kinds of tussles to me for some reason. Seems pretty unprofessional.
4. Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett, Hollywood Homicide
This one isn't even close to surprising. Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett are two guys who, for some reason, I could never imagine getting along. Apparently, they fought throughout the entirety of the production of 2003 drama Hollywood Homicide. The two barely made eye contact, according to Hartnett, and bickered throughout their promotional tour. Talk about an awkward experience. Unsurprisingly, the movie didn't do so well, yielding a net loss.
5. Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross, Desperate Housewives
This one is tough, mostly due to the fact that these women had to operate on a TV SERIES whilst hating one another. That's years of work, as opposed to a movie, which can be shot over the span of a few months. Apparently, Hatcher wasn't really a part of the group of fictional girlfriends off-screen. Eva Longoria called her the "loner" of the group, and the drama didn't stop there. On the set of a Vanity Fair shoot, Cross was upset that Hatcher was front and center and left Hatcher's name off of a goodbye gift at the end of the series.
6. Naya Rivera and Lea Michele, Glee
You would like to think that on a show like Glee everyone would get along. Apparently, according to rumors, that wasn't the case for Rivera and Michele. Allegedly, Michele got Rivera written off the show. This hasn't been confirmed, but she was written out of the final two episodes of season five around the same time that Michele was apparently not getting along with her.
7. Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall, Sex And The City
If Cattrall is anything like her character Samantha it isn't all that surprising that Parker and Cattrall got into it a bit. This is another example of a TV series (plus two movies) with on-set drama, which means this was truly drawn out. Apparently they clashed often, and once Cattrall found out Parker made more money than the rest of the cast it got even worse. Parker was quoted on the tension, telling Marie Claire that "sometimes feelings get hurt."
8. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, The Notebook
This one really hurts. I mean, their chemistry in this movie seemed legit, and I'm sure many people are not so happy to be reading this. The real-life Noah and Allie were, according to director Nick Cassavetes, not so friendly with one another. Apparently they hated each other on set and fought constantly. However, there may have just been some sexual tension there that needed to be acted upon because they obviously went on to date IRL.
9. Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, American Idol
They say a picture is worth a thousand words... I think the photo above pretty much explains this one perfectly. At one point, Minaj called Carey a "bitter, insecure woman" and Carey taunted Minaj for never having a number one single. Later, Carey said working on American Idol with Minaj was like "working in Hell with Satan." I think this is just a case of two literal divas not feeling each other. Nothing more, nothing less.
10. Will Smith and Janet Hubert, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
You may remember when Daphne Reid replaced Hubert for the role of Aunt Viv on the show in 1993. Apparently, that was Smith's doing. Hubert has since called Will Smith an "egomaniac" and said that the way he treated her is the sole reason she would never do a reunion for Fresh Prince.
11. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, The X-Files
This one is kind of unfair to include because the two consider themselves to be like siblings now. But, Duchovny and Anderson a.k.a. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully got into it a lot. Duchovny attributed it to that same thing I mentioned before - working alongside the same person for years can get exhausting.
12. James Franco and Anne Hathaway, The Oscars
This one is kind of the opposite of working on a long-running TV series. In this case, with the Oscars, it's a lot of work in a short period of time. Franco got after Hathaway on the Howard Stern radio show (of all shows), calling her a "goody two-shoes." He refused to defend her when the radio DJ went on to talk about "Hathahaters."
A lot of people were actually a little bit upset with Franco for his lackadaisical hosting performance, and I can't really blame them. I could see how the two might not get along backstage.
Yikes. Wake up James! You're on national TV!
