Sometimes the backstage drama that occurs during the production of some of our favorite films and television shows is more entertaining than what is captured on camera. We are all human, we all have our unique traits and tics about us, but what happens when you're forced to intimately interact with someone whose tics do not match up with yours? Our beloved Hollywood stars are no exception. Many actors and actresses find themselves involved with a costar that they just simply cannot get along with. Although most of the films or shows end up being completed and released, there is usually a very noticeable lack of chemistry when the stars are paired up as on-screen lovers. Stars are just like us in that sometimes- they just can't stand their coworkers! We hate to believe that some of our favorite on-screen romances are really just a facade; a mask to hide the animosity between the actors portraying the fictional lovers.
Some of the pairings on our list may come as a surprise, while others have a serious lack of chemistry, and the obvious hostility between them cannot be hidden. Even some of the greatest actors have a tough time concealing their hatred toward someone that they must force themselves to pretend to lust over. Here are the top 12 examples of on-screen lovers that actually hated each other during filming.
12 Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale - Vacancy
11 Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey - Dirty Dancing
10 10. Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty - Mallrats
9 Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams - The Notebook
8 Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman - Kramer vs. Kramer
7 Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray - One Tree Hill
6 Sharon Stone & Billy Baldwin - Sliver
5 Nick Nolte and Julia Roberts - I Love Trouble
4 Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn - Four Christmases
3 Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe - Some Like It Hot
2 Kirk Cameron and Julie McCullough - Growing Pains
1 Claire Danes & Leonardo DiCaprio - Romeo and Juliet
This one is my favorite because of the irony- Romeo and Juliet actually could not stand each other off camera! Talk about shattering the very foundation of romance... In the 1996 rendition of the classic tale Romeo and Juliet, tensions ran high between the fictional love birds while the cameras weren't rolling. Apparently, Leo's constant "goofing off" and on set shenanigans had Danes in an uproar. It was reported that anytime the two were not in the middle of filming a scene together, Danes would avoid DiCaprio altogether, as she could not stand to be around him. To this day, Danes chooses to actively avoid working with DiCaprio. I'm sure it's safe to say that he doesn't lose sleep over it. With his recent Oscar win, it's a pretty safe bet he's doing just fine.
