Shia LaBeouf vs. Tom Hardy

Hardy is known to be an intense guy, and LaBeouf is anything but conventional. As such, it wasn’t a complete surprise to see the two get involved in a bit of a skirmish on the set of Lawless. Intoxicated on moonshine, LaBeouf reportedly knocked Hardy out cold. Though Hardy routinely plays scary characters, LaBeouf proved not to be intimidated.
Kevin Smith vs. Bruce Willis

Smith directed Willis on the 2010 film Cop Out. However, ‘directed’ is a loose term — as the two constantly got involved in verbal spats. A very jaded Smith appeared on Marc Maron’s podcast after the film had concluded. He had this to say about his experience working with Willis:
“It was difficult. I’ve never been involved in a situation like that where, one component is not in the box at all. It was f****** soul crushing. I mean, a lot of people are gonna be like, ‘Oh, you’re just trying to blame the movie on him.’ No, but I had no f****** help from this dude whatsoever.”
Tommy Lee Jones vs. Jim Carrey

As one recalls, the two co-starred in the 1996 blockbuster Batman Forever. While Jones holds more of a serious persona, Carrey is eccentric — to say the least. Jones reportedly hated working with Carrey on set. Knowing this, Carrey wasn’t shy about awkwardly approaching Jones one random night whilst he was eating dinner. According to Carrey, Jones vocalized his distaste for Carrey right to his face.
Debra Winger vs. Shirley MacLaine

Though MacLaine played Winger’s mother in the iconic film Terms of Endearment, the two allegedly did not get along. MacLaine detailed this in a memoir she wrote about her life in entertainment. During filming, Winger allegedly lifted her skirt and farted in MacLaine’s face over a disagreement with placement marks.
Kim Cattrall vs. Sarah Jessica Parker

The former Sex and the City co-stars have widely been known to not like each other. Tabloids have constantly been documenting issues between the two. There are even long-winded articles breaking down timelines between Cattrall and SJP — and where the discontentment originated. Cattrall was critical of SJP in a recent interview with Piers Morgan:
“This is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker in that I think she could have been nicer. I really think she could have been nicer. I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.”
Will Smith vs. Janet Hubert

Will (Smith) and Aunt Viv (Hubert) had tremendous chemistry on-camera. Behind the scenes though, things weren’t as rosy on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Hubert has publicly blasted Smith on a number of occasions. Things got so bad, that Hubert left the show. I have to admit… it was a bit strange seeing a ‘new’ Aunt Viv (Daphne Maxwell Reid) chumming it up with Uncle Phil (James Avery).
Harrison Ford vs. Josh Hartnett

The Hollywood Homicide duo reportedly were not fond of one another. Whether it was the age gap or differences in culture, Hartnett and Ford reportedly bickered constantly when doing press for the film. It got to a point on-set when Ford would reportedly shut out Hartnett completely. However, when you’re Han Solo/Indiana Jones, you’re able to be selective with your friends.
Claire Danes vs. Leonardo DiCaprio

According to multiple reports, Danes was not fond of DiCaprio’s incessant pranks on set. DiCaprio would often joke around with the cast and crew members. When trying to focus on her role as Juliet, Danes would be distracted. This would cause her to get angry. Though they were lovers on camera, it certainly didn’t appear to be the case off of it.
Ryan Gosling vs. Rachel McAdams

The Notebook is one of the most revered romantic films ever made. As such, it may pain some to hear that Gosling and McAdams weren’t exactly on the best of terms. It’s ironic considering the two did date once the movie finished. However, during filming, director Nick Cassavetes recalls some tension between the two:
“Maybe I’m not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not. And Ryan came to me, and there’s 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, ‘Nick come here.’ 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.’ Later, we went into a room with a producer. They started screaming and yelling at each other.”
Nick Nolte vs. Julia Roberts

Nolte and Roberts were two of the biggest movie stars during the ’90s. The film I Love Trouble starred both of them. Neither are known to be easy to deal with — and this ended up being the case during the filming of this movie. Allegedly, the two had to film scenes separately due to their distaste with one another. When appearing on David Letterman’s late night talk show, Roberts offered a wild, out-of-control impression of an old co-star. This is rumored to be Nolte.
The Women of Beverly Hills, 90210

Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty, and Tori Spelling all starred on the hit show Beverly Hills, 90210. Though friends on the show, filming behind-the-scenes didn’t always go as smoothly. Garth wrote a book about her life in Hollywood. She detailed the contentious relationship between the three actresses. It included moments where — according to Garth — the group wanted to claw each other’s eyes out.
Bill Murray vs. Lucy Liu

Liu and Murray worked together on the film Charlie’s Angels. The word ‘worked’ is a loose term — as the two quickly fell out on set. One story even has Murray berating Liu in front of the entire crew over her acting ability. Liu didn’t take too kindly to the alleged verbal bashing. Interestingly enough, Murray’s character was replaced in Charlie’s Angels 2 by the late Bernie Mac.
Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey

One simple search on YouTube will show you all you need to know. The two were co-hosts on American Idol for a spell. To put it mildly, the duo would butt heads repeatedly on camera. One could sense the tension whenever discussing a potential talent. While entertaining to watch on screen, fellow co-hosts Randy Jackson and Keith Urban certainly looked uncomfortable.
Bea Arthur vs. Betty White

Fans of the The Golden Girls will be sad to hear about the rift between Arthur and White. In fact, there are some claiming that Arthur viewed White as her nemesis. In an interview with Joy Behar, White had this to say about Arthur:
“She was not that fond of me. She found me a pain in the neck sometimes. It was my positive attitude, and that made Bea mad sometimes. Sometimes if I was happy, she’d be furious!”
David Duchovny vs. Gillian Anderson

Mulder and Scully did not always see eye to eye. In fact, there were many times which reportedly captured discontent between both Anderson and Duchovny. This may have stemmed from the fact Anderson failed to mention Duchovny in her Emmy Award acceptance speech (though Duchovny did mention Anderson in his the year prior). The two didn’t talk for years — though have since rekindled a relationship based upon the show’s revival.
Jennifer Grey vs. Patrick Swayze

The chemistry on camera between Grey and Swayze was undeniable. Dirty Dancing showcased romance to the highest degree. However, Grey and Swayze didn’t always get along. In his memoir, Swayze recalled times in which Grey was difficult to work with — largely stemming from her penchant for being overly emotional and silly. However, the two did reconnect and become friends after the filming.
Alyssa Milano vs. Shannen Doherty

Charmed is a very popular cult television show. Doherty and Milano starred on the program for three seasons before Doherty left. Rumors have been swirling for years over the discourse between the two actresses. Each made veiled comments about one another through the media — with Doherty even commenting about the drama on set. In recent years, the two have slowly begun rebuilding their relationship from the past.
Joan Crawford vs. Bette Davis

This is one of the most high profile feuds when it comes to iconic actors. In fact, Crawford and Davis were recently portrayed in Ryan Murphy’s anthology series Feud, starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange. Davis and Crawford starred together in the film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? During this time, the feud was stoked at a crazy level — ultimately reaching its zenith during the film’s publicity tour.
Tisha Campbell vs. Martin Lawrence

For nearly 20 years, the former Martin co-stars didn’t speak to one another. During the final season of the show, Campbell accused Lawrence of sexual harassment. She left the show momentarily — though she returned to film her scenes (without Lawrence present). In February of 2018, the two were seen on Instagram together. It appears as if the rift has been mended.
Melissa Gilbert vs. Melissa Sue Anderson

Despite being sisters on Little House on the Prairie for years, Gilbert and Anderson did not get along. In fact, antagonist Nellie (played by Alison Arngrim) was close friends with Gilbert. It’s quite interesting to think about this wholesome show featuring two siblings with real-life distaste for one another.
Isaiah Washington vs. T.R. Knight

The former Grey’s Anatomy co-stars no longer work for the show. Washington was implicated in an alleged verbal altercation with fellow cast member Patrick Dempsey. Washington was alleged to have used a homophobic slur — which then was reportedly used in reference to Knight (who happens to be gay). After multiple public apologies, Washington was fired from the show. To this day, Washington continues to deny using a homophobic slur towards Knight.
