Hollywood is famous for feuds, but usually, they are not public even though paparazzi observe for stories such as these through camera lenses. Sometimes, actors just don’t get along on the set, and they hate each other, but you cannot see that on screen. Also, studios avoid hiring actors who have big egos because being involved in a feud is not beneficial to anyone around. Usually, the disagreement between two actors is described as “creative differences” or “scheduling conflicts.”
Top 8 Actor Feuds
Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson
The Fast and Furious franchise is probably the best and biggest movie franchise which involves cars, but its star Vin Diesel has “creative differences” with Dwayne Johnson. They have had a poor relationship for years, and it is all about Fast and Furious. The problems were reported on the Fast 8 set as they were consistently arguing during the production of the movie.
Jerome Flynn and Lena Headey
Jerome Flynn and Lena Headey are starring in HBO’s biggest TV show of all times – Game of Thrones. Interestingly enough, Flynn and Lena were a couple in the early 2000s, but they are not speaking to each other now. Rarely will you see the two of them in a scene together (better say never), so something serious must have happened since they absolutely despise one another.
Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic
Castle was one of ABC’s successful TV series which consisted of eight seasons filmed between 2009 and 2016. It was all great at first, but it appeared that two lead actors Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic had their share of differences. The ninth season was officially announced, but the show had to be canceled completely because Stana Katic left due to her disagreements with Fillion. Even though this show solidified their careers, the feud was serious enough for one of them to walk away from such a project.
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan
Millions of people worldwide were enchanted with the chemistry on screen between Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey. However, things are different behind the screen, and two stars have little love for each other. You can see that they were acting weird when they were together, and they promoted Fifty Shades Darker individually. Unfortunately for them, they will have to cooperate for Fifty Shades Freed scheduled for 2018, but they will be glad to part ways once the franchise ends.
Drake Bell and Josh Peck
Drake Bell and Josh Peck were in Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh which was popular in the 2000s. They were not eager to work with one another on the set and ever since the show ended in 2007 both of them were trying to shoot for the stars individually. Drake released three studio albums and voiced Spider-Man in cartoons, whereas Josh has also voiced in the Ice Age franchise.
Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese Gibson
Johnson is a loveable man, yet this is his second feud we are talking about. He wants to create Fast and Furious spin-off that features his character Hobbs which angered his Fast and Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson. The reason for his dissatisfaction is the belief that the spin-off would cause the original Fast and Furious movie to be postponed. Gibson bashed Johnson via Instagram saying that he should respect his co-stars and the fans of the franchise.
Cara Delevingne and Richard Madden (Including Suki Waterhouse)
Richard Madden (Rob Stark in GoT) had an exchange of words with Cara Delevingne after her awkward interview during the promotional tour for Paper Towns. He called Cara “unprofessional” and “ungrateful,” and she responded: “I have no idea who you are, but I think it’s little desperate for a grown man to be bad mouthing someone they don’t know.” To make things more complicated, Suki Waterhouse, Bradley Cooper’s ex-girlfriend, and Cara’s close friend started dating Richard Madden. We won’t get into details.
William Shatner and George Takei
Star Trek marked the last decade, and it featured William Shatner as Captain Kirk and George Takei as Lieutenant Sulu. According to the various reports, these two actors dislike each other even though they have been trying to work on their relationship. George Takei claims that William Shatner is self-asserted behind the scenes, which was the reason why many people had issues with him on set.
