27 Co-Stars Who Couldn't Stand Each Other

Jason Alexander and Heidi Swedberg in 'Seinfeld'

Jason Alexander and Heidi Swedberg in 'Seinfeld'

None of the cast of the sitcom Seinfeld much cared for Heidi Swedberg. She wasn’t rude or mean, she was just terrible to work with. Nobody could figure out what she would do next, and that made their jobs miserable. Jason Alexander was the only one affected for a while, but that changed after she shared screen time with the other actors on set.

The cast decided something had to be done about her. They made a joke, and one thing led to another. Her character died fairly abruptly after licking poisonous envelopes. Alexander claims that although she was a great person, she was also a terrible coworker.

When Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe were filming the 1959 comedy Some Like It Hot, Monroe was going through rough times. She was pregnant, and her professionalism was dropping considerably.

Of course, this led to difficulties with her co-workers. Curtis once said that kissing Monroe was “like kissing Hitler,” but he now claims that was sarcasm.

Despite their love onscreen and their later real-life romance, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams couldn’t stand each other on the set of The Notebook.

Sir Anthony Hopkins and Shirley MacLaine in 'A Change of Seasons'

Maybe it’s because the characters they played had a terrible relationship, but Sir Anthony Hopkins and Shirley MacLaine hated acting together in A change of Seasons. Hopkins could barely put up with her overbearing acting style, calling her, “the most obnoxious actress,” he’d ever worked with.

She said she didn’t like him either, and they seemed content to leave things as they were.

Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Romeo + Juliet'

Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Romeo + Juliet'

He was irritating. She was uptight and prudish. Sounds like middle school all over again. Claire Danes claims that, although she was 6 years younger than him, DiCaprio was an immature prankster.

And since she wouldn’t go along with his jokes, he didn’t care for her much either.

Bill Murray and Lucy Liu in 'Charlie’s Angels'

Bill Murray thought Lucy Liu was a horrible actress, so he called her out on it in the middle of a scene.

She threw punches, and after they were physically separated, they continued to verbally abuse each other. No wonder Murray couldn’t smile on set.

Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett in 'Hollywood Homicide'

Perhaps it was simply the age gap, but Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett did not get along on the set of Hollywood Homicide.

Ford called Hartnett a “punk,” and Hartnett thought Ford was “an old fart.” It’s no surprise that the film didn’t do well.

Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf in 'Lawless'

The details are fuzzy, and so is Tom Hardy’s memory of the incident. Shia LaBeouf is rumored to have hit his co-star so hard he knocked Hardy out. While we may not know exactly how conscious Hardy was, we do know that they both had to be restrained.

It’s fitting, considering the fight happened while filming the violent movie Lawless. You have to wonder if LaBeouf was too into his role.

Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth had a back-and-forth relationship. After being locked on set for 14 or more hours a day, everybody was strained.

Strahan’s departure from the talk show Live was a surprise for everyone, including himself. When he got the opportunity to host Good Morning America, he took it without hesitation.

Desperate Housewives left everybody feeling disheveled. Nicollette Sheridan’s co-stars claim that she could never remember her lines, which eventually lead to a fight between Teri Hatcher and her.

After the fight was broken up, Hatcher told the show’s creator that Sheridan was, “the meanest woman in the world.” If I had to guess, I’d say it's probably hard work with the meanest person in the world.

Life seems to happen all at once, and Tyrese Gibson can certainly attest to that. At the same time that his home life seemed to be imploding, he found out that the Rock was negotiating a Fast and Furious spinoff without him.

Gibson responded by saying he wouldn’t do another Fast and Furious movie with Johnson. They have since made up, and Gibson took back what he said.

Money has caused an unimaginable number of fights, and the set of Fresh Prince was no exception to this rule. While undergoing salary negotiations, Hubert asked Smith to help the rest of the cast get better pay.

He left them to look out for themselves, and he’s had to watch his back ever since.

Naya Rivera said it was blown up too much, but she definitely had problems with Lea Michele on the set of Glee. As Michele’s role on the show grew, she became jealous Rivera, eventually giving Rivera a cold shoulder.

Well, that was Rivera’s side of the story. Michele has stayed surprisingly quiet about it all.

Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

It seems the wasteland they drove in was as harsh as the two actors. Looking in on Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, co-star Zoe Kravitz said that they all went a little crazy after being in the desert for six months.

Add in Hardy’s intense method acting, and you don’t have much room for a good relationship.

Alex Pettyfer will admit that Channing Tatum does not like him and that it’s mostly Pettyfer’s own fault. Because of Pettyfer’s rough history, Tatum didn’t trust Pettyfer before the filming of Magic Mike even began, but Pettyfer’s standoffish attitude on-set didn’t help anything.

Then Pettyfer forgot to pay Tatum’s friend rent, so Tatum lashed out. Pettyfer is regretful, but the situation has not improved.

Selma Blair and Charlie Sheen in 'Anger Management'

While the two co-stars initially had on-set chemistry, Charlie Sheen heard enough about how Selma Blair talked about him off-set to propel them into rocky water.

Add in some severe unprofessionalism, and Sheen felt forced to fire her. She made a mistake, and he wasn’t about to give her any grace.

Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte in 'I Love Trouble'

This relationship is a prime example of how poor off-set chemistry can carry itself on-screen. Julia Roberts is known to have described Nolte as “completely disgusting,” while Nolte claims that everyone knows Roberts is not a nice person.

The tension got so bad that they ended up shooting some scenes separately, and the movie ended up being odd to watch.

Sellers was unhappy with the 1960’s movie Casino Royale when he started, but things only went downhill for him from there. He was forced to play a role he found humiliating, and then he had to act with an actor he found exceptionally frustrating.

While it’s unclear what the source of the drama was, the co-stars eventually chose to film with a mannequin rather than have to put up with each other.
