Actors Who Hated Working Together

You don’t have to like someone to work with them.  And that’s just as true in Hollywood as it is anywhere else.  Here are some examples of co-stars who did NOT get along:

1.  Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep,  “Kramer vs. Kramer”.  They were playing warring spouses, but Meryl felt Dustin “overstepped” when he ad-libbed a SLAP that made it into the movie.  Dustin later apologized.

2.  Winona Ryder and Gary Oldman,  “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”.  Winona says they got along fine during rehearsals, but things changed when they started shooting, and she, quote, “felt like there was a danger.”

3.  Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy,  “Mad Max: Fury Road”.

They were already not getting along when Tom showed up to the set three hours late one day.  Charlize let him have it, and he got right in her face.  Charlize felt threatened, and requested protection for the remainder of the shoot.

4.  Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn,  “Four Christmases”.

Reese is pretty meticulous about rehearsing and learning lines, while Vince likes to ad-lib. The tension it caused was bad enough that they cut a sex scene from the movie, because Reese didn’t even want to pretend to be intimate with him.

5.  Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams,  “The Notebook”.

Sure, they ended up dating for two years . . . but they couldn’t stand each other at first.  They had to work out their issues in a meeting with the producer and director where they, quote, “started screaming and yelling at each other.”

6.  David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson,  “The X-Files”.

Gillian once said, quote, “There were definitely periods when we hated each other . . . We didn’t talk for long periods of time.  It was intense, and we were both pains in the [butt] for the other at various times.”
