15 Times Actors Refused To Be In Scenes Together

Being an actor is just like any other job in a lot of ways. Sometimes actors are asked to do things that make them uncomfortable and sometimes they have to work with people they don’t like. If you’ve ever had a job where you had a particularly annoying co-worker we’re sure you’ll understand. Now imagine that you had to pretend to like that person, or even do a love scene with them – it would be pretty difficult, right? So it’s not hard to understand why some actors just flat out refuse to work alongside each other.

In some cases, the actors might have a history together and this causes tensions between them on the set but in other cases, they simply can’t stand the sight of each other. You might see them smiling together on the movie poster, but that doesn’t mean things went smoothly on the set. We’d like to think that all actors are professionals who don’t let their personal agenda’s get in the way but that’s just not the truth. With all those big egos flying around a celebrity feud is always right around the corner. The stars on today’s list took things to the next level when they refused to be in scenes together…

13 Bill Murray Told Lucy Liu That She Couldn’t Act

Apparently, the comedy veteran told the Kill Bill actress that she couldn’t act and she didn’t take it well.

Baldwin claimed that Shia appeared “scattered” when he showed up for rehearsal and although he had all his lines memorized he quickly grew frustrated when the other actors couldn’t “keep up with him”. According to Alec, Shia verbally attacked him in front of the entire cast saying, "If you don’t say your lines. I’m just going to keep saying my lines.” Baldwin reportedly offered to quit the production, but the executives chose to fire Shia instead. Could this be one of the reasons why Shia decided to “quit” Hollywood completely?
