Top 10 Sets of Co Stars You Didn’t Realize Hated Each Other

10 Sets of Co Stars You Didn’t Realize Hated
Each Other 10. Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw Jaws is one of the greatest films ever made.
Okay, so it’s not quite on the level of Citizen Kane, Casablanca, or The Godfather,
but it’s maybe the greatest summer blockbuster ever conceived. And right there, smack dab
in the middle of that movie about three guys trying to hunt down and kill a massive, man-eating
Great White Shark, was the contentious relationship between Hooper and Quint, played by Richard
Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw. And according to Dreyfuss in many an interview
and documentary, that icy relationship extended to real-life, as Shaw took a tremendous amount
of pleasure in tormenting the younger actor. Dreyfuss had just had a movie come out, and
had no problem peacocking around Martha’s Vineyard and bedding as many women as possible,
and he also admits to have taken a drink straight out of the hard-drinking Shaw’s hand and
tossing it overboard. Dreyfuss speaks exceptionally highly of Shaw these days, but the stories
he and others tell paint a picture of pure hatred between the two on-set throughout the
shoot. 9. William Shatner and George Takei We hate to break it to any Star Trek fans
out there, but it turns out there was some serious dissention on the deck of the USS
Enterprise. That’s because, despite being two of the most beloved actors from the show,
William Shatner and George Takei have apparently had many, many a difference over the years.
And it’s not exactly a tension that the two have shied away from addressing over the
years either, though few people seem to realize it exists. Takei, it should be noted, has had an exceptionally
hard life. He was placed in a Japanese internment camp as a child during World War II, and obviously
has faced the arduous task of existing as a gay man in a time when that was, and continues
to be, far from an accepted lifestyle. But it’s been heightened at least a bit by his
feud with Shatner, in which Takei has said he believes The Shat got envious of Takei’s
growing popularity, while much of the bitterness seems to also stem from the fact that Shatner
was not invited to Takei’s gay wedding. 8. Bill Murray and Lucy Liu It seems hard to imagine that Bill Murray
would be anything but cuddly, considering he just gives off the vibe of being a down-to-earth,
goofy, laid back dude. After all, this is a guy around whom legendary tales spring up
about him showing up at house parties and doing the dishes, which make him seem more
like a humble comedy god than anything else. But the truth is, when you dig a little deeper,
apparently he can be a little prickly. Lucy Liu learned this the hard way. On the set of Charlie’s Angels, in which
Murray played the role of Bosley (and was later replaced by the late Bernie Mac for
the sequel), it’s come out that, apparently, Murray didn’t think much of Liu. The story
goes that Murray flat out said Liu couldn’t act, leading to her throwing punches in his
general direction. Now, Murray disputes that this is what happened, though he admits there
was tension between the two on-set. Of course maybe not as much as there was between Murray
and director McG, about whom Murray was quoted saying, “he deserves to die”. Tell us
how you really feel, Bill. 7. Steve McQueen and Yul Brynner From early on in the transcendent Western
movie The Magnificent Seven, the characters played by Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen are
virtually inseparable, with McQueen playing the right hand man to Brynner’s lead character,
and the man who assembles the titular Seven. However, behind the scenes it turns out that
McQueen wanted badly to stop being the right hand man and to start simply being The Man,
period. McQueen was infamous for being overly competitive, and according to co-star Robert
Vaughn, that extended to pretty much everything on the set and led to a very uncomfortable
vibe between McQueen and Brynner. Among other things, McQueen was jealous of
the gun that Brynner was given by the props department, as well as the fact that Brynner’s
horse was bigger. So McQueen tried everything he could to upstage Brynner and the rest of
the cast in order to put himself front and center in the film as much as possible. It
probably didn’t help matters that, while six of the Magnificent Seven stayed together
in a motel, Brynner had his own private house away from the rest of the cast. After all,
what better way to create solidarity between your cast than to have the biggest star and
Oscar winner live by himself and barely interact with anyone else? 6. Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall The premise behind Sex and the City, if you’re
one of the very few people left who is unaware, revolves around a tight knit group of four
friends as they have sex, in the city. Surprising, we know. Anyway, apparently things off-screen
didn’t really reflect the on-screen friendships, particularly between star Sarah Jessica Parker
and supporting actress Kim Cattrall. Cattrall has gotten a reputation for being a bit of
an ice queen over the years, and has been difficult to work with for some people, and
this was no different for Parker and her other co-stars. The general consensus among the entire group
of four stars is that tensions were often high on the set, which is why it seems kind
of amazing that they were able to make not one, but two movies despite their serious
differences with one another. The other amazing part about them getting two movies made is
what appears to have been a complete lack of a script or anything resembling common
sense in the production process. Anyway, much of the rift between the stars has stemmed
from Cattrall thinking she’s a massive star and demanding more money, which in turn delayed
the first movie. We suddenly wish she had held out for more cash, to spare us all from
that trainwreck. 5. Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep Life imitates art, as the old saying goes,
and for Dustin Hoffman that was never more true than when he was on the set of the Academy
Award winning film Kramer vs. Kramer, in which he co-starred with Meryl Streep as a married
couple going through a bitter and difficult breakup. The thing is, Hoffman was going through
the exact same thing off-screen, and according to the actor himself, he brought a lot of
that baggage to the set. That turned out to be bad news for Streep. Now, Hoffman is somewhat notorious for being
a prickly actor, and has a reputation for often being difficult to work with. It’s
that very idea that made his character in the film Tootsie kind of tongue-in-cheek,
because to an extent he was playing himself. In any event, add in the fact that he was
going through a divorce and admits that he was getting heavily into drugs at the time,
and he developed real resentment toward his co-star. According to Streep, she remained
largely unaware until after the fact that he was harboring what was bordering on genuine
hate for her. Because seriously, how could anyone hate Meryl Streep? 4. Kenny Baker and Anthony Daniels The most beloved gay droid couple in a galaxy
far, far away or, frankly, any galaxy, has had some serious issues, we’re so sorry
to say. C-3PO can speak millions of languages, but not a single one of them is the language
of love, it would appear. That’s in large part helped by the fact that Anthony Daniels,
the man who rocked that golden suit, apparently had little to no time for his much smaller
companion, Kenny Baker. Baker, who has played R2-D2 in every Star
Wars film and will do so again in Episode VII, has been steadfast in his refusal to
appear socially with Daniels. When the Episode VII cast photo circulated not too long ago,
you may have noticed that Baker was conspicuously absent. According to Baker, Daniels has been
rude to not just him, but virtually everyone involved with the films. This all stems from
an incident in which Baker had the audacity to say hello to Daniels in public, to which
Daniels replied with an angry reply that basically told Baker to screw off and leave him alone. 3. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson We know, we know. Mulder and Scully? Say it
isn’t so! But unfortunately, it is. Now, X-Files stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson
seem cordial enough to one another these days whenever they’re in public together, but
as the series wore on, the two developed a genuine animosity for one another. According
to Duchovny, it was a case of “familiarity [breeding] contempt” and that they would
often argue just for the sake of arguing. In fact, he said that it got to the point
where they simply hated even looking at one another. In fact, it was the strained relationship
between the two stars that ultimately got Duchovny on board for the X-Files movies.
On the surface, that doesn’t make a lot of sense since — if you can’t stand someone,
surely you wouldn’t want to be working with them for hours a day, weeks and even months
at a time, right? Well for Duchovny the opposite was true, as he has said that he wound up
doing the movie simply because he wanted to bury the hatchet. Figuratively, of course,
since as far as we know, he’s never attacked Anderson with a hatchet or any other kind
of weapon. 2. Bill Murray and Harold Ramis Yes, it’s our old friend Bill Murray again,
this time with his frequent collaborator both on screen and off, the late, great, Harold
Ramis. You would probably never guess that the guys who were so tight on camera in both
Stripes and Ghostbusters, and who made iconic films like Caddyshack and Groundhog Day together
could have been anything other than best friends, but apparently during the filming of that
latter film, they had a severe falling out, from which they only managed to recover just
prior to Ramis’s death earlier this year. According to Ramis, the friction stemmed largely
from Murray’s personal life, as he was going through some extremely rocky times in his
marriage. Ramis went so far as to describe Murray’s behavior as erratic, and the general
sense is that he was behaving like a petulant, moody child on set. Others have said that
part of the reason for the falling out is a differing opinion of what Groundhog Day
should be, as Murray allegedly wanted it to be more philosophical in nature, while Ramis
wanted to make it a straight comedy. Once filming was complete, Murray stopped speaking
to Ramis, which we can probably chalk up as a huge part of the reason he was always so
resistant to the idea of doing Ghostbusters 3. That, or he re-watched Ghostbusters 2 and
realized how much it sucked. 1. Bea Arthur and Betty White Believe it or not, things weren’t all unicorns
and rainbows on the set of the Golden Girls, the show that taught us older women still
like to have sex and that there’s nothing wrong with running half a dozen clip shows
every season. And it turns out that’s because, if Bea Arthur were to give Betty White a gift,
the card attached would actually say, “You’re something that rhymes with the word bunt.”
We didn’t think it was possible, but apparently you can hate Betty White. And by “you”,
we mean “Bea Arthur.” According to Rue McClanahan and White herself,
Arthur just could not stand Betty for somewhat inexplicable reasons. The speculation is that
Arthur, a classically trained theater actress, resented the happy-go-lucky nature of White,
who had pretty much grown up on TV and had an almost obnoxiously sunny disposition. The
one-sided feud lasted until Arthur’s death, despite White going and seeing her one-woman
show three times and attempting to reconcile at a Golden Girls reunion panel. It’s okay,
Betty White, the rest of
the world still loves you.

  1. Simon. Why don't you just google how they pronounce their names before you go and make a video about them??! I mean they're famous actors.. there are plenty of videos of them being interviewed. You spend time researching about them. Research how they pronounce their names

  2. Celebrities and Stars only exist within the weak controlled mind. None of these idiots are worth the time of day. They are only worshipped by throngs of low I.Q. morons ! HOLLYWOOD and the B.S. celebrity culture is a dying breed.

  3. I don't think it is a secret that Kyle couldn't stand Cartman. Kyle has called Cartman a selfish egoistical obnoxious anti-Semite. Cartman has openly referred to Kyle as, 'that little Jew'. Needless to say the set is often filled with tension and both stars having waddled to their respective dressing rooms during filming.

  4. I can't handle the liberal jabs that the narrator throws out from time to time. The attack on schattner. Who could possibly hate Meryl Streep? There's tons of people that hate Meryl Streep.

  5. Not Japanese Internment Camp — Japanese American Internment Camp. There is a real difference. Japanese Internment sounds like citizens of Japan. But the internment Camps were almost entirely about putting Americans (Men, Women, children and elderly) in the camps.

  6. I find somewhat humorous that Takei supports the very party that placed him and his family in an internment camp.

  7. I wonder how much of this is hype. & How Much is true. I guess if 2 egomaniacs are on a show etc. They can clash & have conflicts . Some actors can be temperamental. It sounds like typical Hollywood to me.

  8. Both Shatner and Takei were probably busy playing their cards. An oppressed Jew versus an oppressed Gay Japanese man.

  9. Going back more than a few years, one of the biggest pairs of co stars were Abbot & Costello. It was said they never spoke off camera or associated with each other. It was said that Lou Costello was extremely angry and bitter about Abbot ‘s hand in developing Costello’s on camera persona. He hated playing the stupid bombastic character through their entire career together. When they stopped performing, they never spoke to each other ever again. Sad reality.

  10. you missed off an older one the characters in uk tv show steptoe and son did not like each other but this dislike worked well in the show

  11. On what planet does being gay ‘continue to be far from accepted’!? For real? Like “Oh, poor Takei “..he has it so rough…openly talking about being gay ad nauseam-( lest we forget), marching in gay pride parades, winning GLAAD awards for being gay, giving countless interviews about his love for his HUSBAND all while being applauded by the entire universe.. except Shatner? Beam me up Scotty..💀

  12. The thing is, were smarter now. We know that sometimes, to get publicity, movie execs will make up stories about actors not getting along. It's cheap free publicity. Also, the directors, and even the actors themselves, will put forth an attitude of disdain off screen in hopes that, such animosity will flow through onto the screen. This is particularly effective for dramas and movies involving competition type stuff. Rarely do you hear about funny movies having actors not getting along. I don't believe any of theses "This actor hates this actor" b.s.

  13. I can take or leave all of them , ,,,, ,, ,, streep confirmed she is a nasty bitter whore about 2 years ago, on camera at the oscars

  14. It is not hard to be gay anymore… It was tough back a few decades ago, but it isn't even an issue any longer. Almost everyone I know, knows I am bi and no one gives it a second thought. I hang out with Trump supporting, gun totting, and truck driving guys in their 40s and 50s. No one cares anymore. My wife doesn't care either.

  15. It's certainly been absolutely NO secret that Fred Rogers and King Friday NEVER got along while on the set of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and that they were ALWAYS butting heads and some loud shouting arguments including many physical confrontations. Which explains why they never really shown together on screen…

  16. Shatner did not have conflict with Takei. The conflict was mostly one sided with Takei. He really did not have many scenes with Shatner and seems it is an issue now because the only way to promote his name.

  17. Takei is no different to any other liberal let alone a gay one. They always demand sympathy points. If they don't get it throw a hissy fit.

  18. I don't care whether or not they hated each other, or didn't get along – just as long as they do what they're hired to do, and entertain me.

  19. I wouldn't consider being gay still far from accepted honestly it's kinda flamboyant and everywhere now I could be wrong about some of the south but it's been awhile since I've been back there.

  20. It's funny. Gillian Anderson was unemotional scientific almost (for the most part) Spock like. But that smile..well.. Hello Sunshine! It's amazing how attractive a smile can make a person l

  21. Bill only did GB1 in exchange for making "The Razor's Edge", so it's not surprising he didn't want to do GB3.

    Sounds like he just got bored with that kind of comedy, and wanted to move on to something else.

  22. Bill only did GB1 in exchange for making "The Razor's Edge", so it's not surprising he didn't want to do GB3.

    Sounds like he just got bored with that kind of comedy, and wanted to move on to something else.

  23. Abbott ans Costello fell out big time in 1945 when one of them hired a guy the other had fired. They didn't speak to each other for three years despite being one of the biggest double acts in the world at the time.

  24. The narrator is irritating especially with the personal opinions that have nothing to do with the subject. Won’t listen to his narratives again

  25. From what I've heard, most of the Star Trek cast hated Shatner. James Doohan who played Scotty said he liked the character of Captain Kirk but hated Bill. He accused him of being a camera hog and told stories on how he would refuse to star in an episode that focused too much on a different character even though 75% of the episode focused on him.

  26. It's easy to hate Betty White but what surprises me is why anyone would think all these self absorbed hollywood egos would all get along all the time

  27. Incredibly, it is not required that people working on a series or film together have to be friends for life. They just have to be professional.

  28. 1:43 – I don't think I lkever knew that George Takei had been in an Internment camp as a child! (Though it shouldn't surprise me – he's the right generation for it.) This is sad!
