It is already difficult to surprise us with the numerous novels of actors who happened to play a couple in one film and transfer their feelings from the screen to real life. However, there are also completely opposite cases, when famous film couples terribly hate each other behind the scenes.
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams’ relationship on the court was not going well. The actors constantly swore, argued and sorted out the relationship. Gosling even demanded that the director find him a new partner. And no one knows if we would have enjoyed the wonderful film “The Diary of Memory” today if a spark hadn’t run between the actors, from which real feelings later flared up. After filming, Rachel and Ryan dated for several years, but in the end, the couple still broke up.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes
At the time of filming, Leo was 21 years old, and the young 16-year-old Claire was just starting her acting career. DiCaprio considered his partner unnecessarily tight and tense, so he constantly made fun of her and played. This behavior caused anger and indignation of the young actress, so she tried to date Romeo only on the set.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson
It is difficult to find out the truth about the true relationship of these actors – there are too many rumors and gossip around them. Some insiders claim that Dornan and Johnson did not experience any “chemistry” on the set and the crew literally had to make on-screen lovers portray at least some kind of passion.
Other sources state that the actors did not tolerate each other at all. The reason for this discord was the very jealous wife of Jamie Dornan.
Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke
Kim Basinger frankly did not like this film and after finishing work on the picture tried to forget about it forever. The actress agreed to this role out of despair – she was out of work for a long time, and “9 ½ weeks” was the only chance to return to big cinema.
Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger did not hide their dislike for each other during filming. Rourke constantly bullied his partner. Such a relationship between future stars developed largely thanks to the director, who forbade them to communicate outside of filming and in every possible way encouraged their quarrels, since he wanted Kim and Mickey to fully get used to the images of their characters.
Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray
The on-screen passions are shown on screen by Swayze and Gray also raged behind the scenes of Dirty Dancing. The fact is that the actors who played the main roles could not stand each other. Jennifer was very young and, as Patrick Swayze believed, unprofessional.
She repeatedly forced everyone to re-shoot the same scene several times, and if someone tried to criticize her, then the actress could even cry and run away from the set, which made her partner extremely angry.
Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron
When such strong personalities converge on the same set, conflict is inevitable. The first time of filming in hot Namibia, the actors terribly annoyed each other and constantly fought. Tom considered his partner too pampered and spoiled, and Charlize, in turn, called Tom crazy.
But, as is often the case, the partners eventually became friends. At parting, Hardy even gave Charlize Theron a poster with his photo and the caption: “You are a real nightmare, BUT you are just awesome. I miss you. Love, Tommy. “
Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman
The legendary drama “Kramer vs. Kramer” was received by the public and critics with a bang and brought Meryl Streep an Oscar. However, the shooting of the picture was not easy for the actress. The fact is that Dustin Hoffman clearly did not like his partner, who was constantly trying to rewrite the script and amend some dialogues and scenes.
Sometimes Dustin deliberately pissed off Streep, said nasty things to her about the deceased fiancé, actor John Casale, who died of cancer. And once Hoffman threw a glass at his partner at all, but, fortunately, he missed. It is not surprising that after that the actors flatly refuse to act together.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson
The relationship between David and Gillian was very difficult. At first, the actress was often unfriendly with her colleague, as she did not like being just the “right hand” of Agent Mulder. And Anderson’s fee was almost 10 times less. But over time, all differences were resolved and the actors became truly close friends. Many people still now and then suspect Gillian and David of a secret romance.
Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie
There were a lot of rumors around Depp and Jolie on the set of The Tourist. Someone suspected the stars of an office romance, someone talked about a bosom friendship. But be that as it may, information was repeatedly leaked to the press that during the filming the actors were simply tired of each other and tried not to intersect outside the site.
Depp, although he respected his colleague, considered her too constrained and demanding. And Angelina, accustomed to treating her work with all the professionalism, was indignant at Depp’s selfishness, who refused to cut her hair and get the appropriate shape for her role in the film.
