You’d Never Guess Which Celebs Hated Working Together

Becca Van Sambeck
Becca is a recent Fordham grad, a former German beer hall girl, and a new Brooklyn resident who used to read the dictionary for fun as a kid. She has only gotten slightly less lame since then. She loves pugs, chicken fingers, reading and Game of Thrones.

Everybody loves watching a good feud, which is why we were super excited to hear that Ryan Murphy, the man behind American Horror Story and American Crime Story, is bringing another anthology series to FX called Feuds. The new series will follow some of the most notorious fights in history, starting with the legendary hatred between Hollywood legends Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. In that spirit, here are other costars who secretly loathed each other when the cameras stopped rolling.


Claire Danes and Leo DiCaprio

The two played star-crossed lovers in Romeo + Juliet, but in real life Danes thought DiCaprio was immature while he thought she was cold and stuffy. Considering he had a group of friends called the Pussy Posse at the time, she might not have been far off. 




Scott Patterson and Lauren Graham

One of the most exciting aspects of the Gilmore Girls revival is seeing whether Luke and Lorelei end up together, but in real life there wasn’t much love lost behind the two — both politely claim that they didn’t interact much behind the scenes, but rumor has it that it was a little frostier than that.



Naya Rivera and Lea Michele

The two Glee stars stuck out from a crowded cast thanks to their strong vocals and their diva behavior. There were always rumors about Lea Michele being unpleasant and Naya Rivera keying one boyfriend’s car and inspired Big Sean’s “I Don’ Fuck With You,” giving the impression that she’s not exactly a charmer herself. Unsurprisingly, two divas is one too many, and their fighting got so bad that Lea got Naya thrown off the show.



Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams

The two brought to life one of the most iconic love stories of all time with The Notebook and even dated on and off in real life. However, their own personal love story didn’t start until the movie wrapped. The director admits the pair couldn’t stand each other and Ryan would request to have someone else stand in for her while he delivered his lines. But hey, hatred is a great way to start a good romance story, isn’t it?



Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall

Sex and The City is a show all about female friendship, but Samantha and Carrie didn’t take that camaderie offscreen. Kim Cattrall was pissed about SJP making so much more than the rest of the cast, and their feud even held up the making of the Sex and The City movie (although that might’ve been a blessing, seeing what an abomination that movie ended up being).



Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey

Another iconic movie couple admitted to hating each other in real life. Swayze wrote in his memoir about his dislike for his Dirty Dancing co-star, calling her “emotional” and “silly.” Real sweet of him.



Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson

Everybody was talking about Fifty Shades of Grey, and fans were dying to see the smoking chemistry between Ana Steele and Christian Grey in real life. Then we saw the movie. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson don’t have a ton of chemistry, sure, but even more telling was their press tour, which was the equivalent of Eeyore sitting in the rain. The two hilariously struggled to say even one nice thing about the other.



Blake Lively and Leighton Meester

Gossip Girl is all about drama, so it actually makes sense that there’d be so much behind the scenes. Blair and Serena may have been frenemies on the show, but behind the scenes they never got to the friends part. They never bothered to like each other and while rumor has it that they got along better in the later seasons of Gossip Girl, Leighton reportedly took note that Blake never offered her congratulations on her engagement to Adam Brody or the birth of their baby.



Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is now well-known for licking doughnuts in stores and insisting she be carried everywhere like a baby, but before that she was simply stirring up problems with Sam + Cat co-star, Jennette McCurdy. The fighting — which played out with a lot of thinly veiled social media shade and was apparently instigated by pay differences — got so bad that the hit show was canceled. And then McCurdy made a web series that featured an obnoxious pop diva with a super-high ponytail named Glorianna. Take a wild guess where she got the inspiration from.
