By Krystal Brown

Navigating a room for more than five minutes with someone we’re not fond of can be a challenge in itself. Now, envision having to collaborate with that person and feign affection while truly harboring dislike. It’s quite the ordeal. These famous individuals found themselves cast as on-screen partners, yet supposedly hated each other.

During a kissing scene in ‘Silver’ it was reported that Sharon bit Wiliam’s tongue and they hated each other from the beginning. The director, Phil Noyce, told his biographer, “I ended up having to shoot many of their closeups with only one of them in the room at a time, because they didn’t want to look at each other.

The Notebook is known as one of the most romantic movies of all time. However, the director, Nicolas Cassavetes leading lady, Rachel McAdams stated that she and Ryan Gosling would scream and shout at each other one set. They did make it through though because they ended up dating for three years after shooting. 

Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn

Reese supposedly took a dislike to her co-star Vince Vaughn during the filming of Four Christmases. The acting styles of the pair just did not match, and this made filming unbearable for everyone involved. Vince would reportedly turn up to filming 5 minutes before things were getting started, and this drove Reese insane.

You might be disappointed to learn that Patrick and Jennifer fell out before they began shooting. This occurred during their previous movie together, Red Dawn. Swayze said that he found it difficult to work with Jennifer and in his autobiography, he said, “We did have a few moments of friction… she seemed particularly emotional, sometimes bursting into tears if someone criticized her”. 

Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte

During the filming of ‘I Love Trouble’ , the two had to reportedly shoot some scenes separately. Julia later went on to describe Nick Nolte as “completely disgusting” and she told the NY times, “he seems to go out of my way to repel people”. Nick replied to this comment by saying, “she’s not a nice person, everyone knows that.”

This proves that 007 doesn’t always charm the ladies. Pierce stated that he wasn’t a fan of his ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ costar Teri Hatcher. In fact, during Italy’s Vanity Fair, he said, “She was always keeping me waiting for hours. I must admit I let slip a few words which weren’t very nice.” It was later revealed that she was pregnant and suffering from morning sickness.

Tony compared kissing Marilyn Monroe in ‘Some Like It Hot’ to kissing Hitler. His famous words were, “It was awful. She nearly choked me to death by deliberately sticking her tongue down my throat into my windpipe”. These two were actually in a relationship before the making of the film, but by the time filming came around, things had turned sour. 

Richard Gere and Debra Winger

Debra had admitted that she didn’t like anyone whilst on the set of ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’. She hated making the movie and compared co-star Richard Gere to ‘a brick wall’. She even called the director, Taylor Hackford, ‘an animal’. 

Sean Young and Harrison Ford

The 1982 sci-fi was a hit, but there was a love scene in there that was difficult for Sean and Harrison and it became better known as ‘the hate scene’. The actress said later, “When you’re twenty and you’re insecure, you hope that your leading man will be like, ‘It’s okay, you’ll be fine’… and Harrison wasn’t particularly generous in that way.” 

Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes

Even though this movie is based on romance and love, Leonardo and Claire just weren’t star-crossed lovers on set. There were rumors that the Homeland actress found Leonardo irritatingly immature and became agitated by him playing pranks on the crew and cast. However, he also thought that she was reserved and uptight.
