Actors are good at, well—acting. And so, on-screen relationships aren’t always what they appear to be. You’d be surprised at how many co-stars who appear to have good relationships, actually hate each other. Here are ten co-stars that have feuded against each other. These co-stars acted like lovers, best friends and even neighbors on both the big and small screens, but in real life, they were anything but. Some of these celebs are known for being difficult to just about anyone and others are known for being nice to just about everyone…. well, almost…
10. Ariana Grande and Jenette McCurdy on Sam & Cat
Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat is currently scratched, allegedly due to the feud between co-stars Arianna Grande and Jenette McCurdy. Although they play friends on the show, in real life, it’s the complete opposite. So, why the hate? No one can really say for sure, but it has been rumored that Grande’s budding (and now blooming) singing career made her quite the diva. However, in the third episode of McCurdy’s web series, What’s Next for Sarah? where she essentially plays herself, a character named “Gloriana,” who is a singer and a major diva, makes an appearance. Grande clearly wasn’t thrilled with this. Hopefully, one day, someone will let the cat out of the bag and we can find out what really happened.
9. Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Catrall on Sex And The City
While they played best friends on the hit show Sex And The City, in real life, co-stars Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker are more like frenemies. So why the hate? It’s all about the money. Sarah Jessica Parker wasn’t just an actress playing Carrie Bradshaw, she also executive produced the series. So, because of her extra job, Parker was always paid more than Cattrall, Kristin Davis who played Charlotte and Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda. Catrall reportedly demanded an equal salary to play Samantha, and Parker was none too pleased. There were also fights about wardrobe and threats of on-set walk outs. At least fans can hope for a Sex & The City 3…
8. Lea Michele and Naya Rivera on Glee
Glee isn’t so gleeful for co-stars Naya Rivera and Lea Michele. On April 15th, 2014, the girls reportedly had a huge on-set blow up and it ended with Rivera having a fight with producers. So, they booted her off for the rest of the season because we all know, Lea Michele is the bigger star. What was the fight about? The girls aren’t talking about it. In fact, Michele went on David Letterman and denied the whole thing. Rumor has it, the reason involved backstabbing and boys.
7. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in The Notebook
While Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling may have played on-screen lovers in The Notebook, in real life, they didn’t always love each other. At one point, things reportedly became so contentious on the set, that Gosling asked that McAdams be removed. The two actors had a meeting with producers and ultimately got along for the rest of the shoot. In fact, things went so well that the two dated for about a year and a half off-screen. Or maybe they just had a really good sexual connection…
6. Will Smith and Janet Hubert (Aunt Viv) on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Remember on Fresh Price of Bel-Air, when a different actress suddenly played Aunt Viv one day? That’s because of a huge Hollywood feud between Will Smith and Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv for the first three seasons of the sitcom. In an interview, Hubert said ” … I felt demonized and beaten up and crucified for many many years, no one came forward in my defense. [Will Smith and Alfonso Ribiero did] some heinous, horrible things to me — they were like bad kids, especially Alfonso. He said that I was crazy and nobody wanted to go to lunch with me.” Hubert also said that it was Will Smith’s idea to fire her and replace her with actress Daphne Reid. So, maybe the fresh Price was just a little too fresh for her liking…
5. Bea Arthur & Betty White on The Golden Girls
Life on the Golden Girls set wasn’t apparently always so golden for co-stars Betty White and the late Bea Arthur. Apparently, the actress that played Rose was just too rosy for Bea’s liking. White said that Bea just didn’t like her, “Bea had a reserve. She was not that fond of me. She found me to be 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!” The late Rue McClanahan, who played Blanche on the show, had allegedly said for years that Bea called Betty a certain word that started with C and ended with T.
4. Bill Murray and Lucy Liu in Charlie’s Angels
Everyone likes Bill Murray… expect for Lucy Liu. Apparently, Murray wasn’t too nice to Liu on the set of the first Charlie’s Angels movie. During a scene, Murray said to Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu (in this specific order), “I get why you’re here, and you’ve got talent … but what in the hell are you doing here. You can’t act!” Liu was so upset that she tried to punch Murray in the face. The two eventually had to be separated. Because of this, Bernie Mac replaced Murray for the sequel. Talk about on set tension!
3. Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre on Two and a Half Men
So, technically, they weren’t co-stars, but Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre worked almost as close, when Charlie starred in Lorre’s show Two and A Half Men, from 2003-2011 for 178 episodes. Charlie wasn’t exactly the model employee, coming to set hung over and being argumentative. Sheen ultimatly had a meltdown and publicly bashed Lorre and the show. The whole thing ended when Sheen was fired and replaced by Ashton Kutcher. Sheen went on to star in Anger Management on FX.
2. Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on American Idol
Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey (who was paid $18 million big ones for her work) were both judges on American Idol, but their reign together didn’t last long. After an argument regarding a performance on the show, Minaj pointed a Q-tip at Mariah Carey and said, “Clean your ears out, clean your ears out.” Carey replied with class, saying to the performer, “Darling, let me express this to her as a singer. Just sing from your heart every time and your notes will continue to shine regardless of the dirt that gets splattered around you.” Minaj continued to bash Mariah in the press and on Twitter, calling her a diva and insecure about her age, among other things.
1. Teri Hatcher and Everyone on Desperate Housewives
Things got pretty desperate on the Desperate Housewives set because of Teri Hatcher, who played Susan Delfino on the show. Even Nicollette Sheridan called Hatcher the “meanest woman in the world,” under oath, in her trial against show creator, Marc Cherry. When the show ended, Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman, Vanessa Williams and Marcia Cross gave all the crew members luggage as a parting gift, but Hatcher’s name was left off the card. But Eva Longoria paints a different picture of the story and said in an interview, “You know, Teri was just a loner. Me and Marcia [Cross] and Felicity [Huffman] were a lot closer because we are just girlie girls who like to be in each other’s company. Teri didn’t. There was no bad blood, I think that was just the way it was.”
