When watching movies we often tend to believe that the actors get on just as well as their characters do. And while sometimes that’s true, and it probably makes playing the part easier and more fun, there are cases when actors just don’t get along at all. It’s a bit disappointing for us, but at the same time it’s even more impressive because you’d never be able to tell on screen. So let’s take a look at 12 co-stars who didn’t actually get along.
1. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling
They might’ve played sappy lovers in the Notebook, but when they weren’t filming they would constantly bicker and fight. The director of Notebook said it was the strangest thing, they had great chemistry on screen, but as soon as the cameras stopped rolling they reverted back to hating each other. We all know that eventually they got over their differences and even dated briefly, before reverting back to hating each other’s guts.
2. Alyssa Milano and Shannen Doherty
Did you watch Charmed? Then you’re probably familiar with the three sisters who were also witches and their powers only grew stronger when they worked together. Well, turns out it wasn’t all love on the set. Alyssa Milano and Shannen Doherty didn’t get along at all. In fact, Alyssa Milano later said that being on set felt like being back in high-school, with how Shannon was behaving. It got to a point where Shannon left the show and it’s still unclear whether she just left or if she was fired.
3. Blake Lively And Leighton Meester
These two played best friends on Gossip Girl. Sure, even on the show their characters occasionally had some fights and misunderstandings, but they always ended up sorting out their differences and staying friends. Well, unfortunately GG fans, Blake and Leighton had no such luck in real life. They didn’t get along, and rumor has it they haven’t even spoken to each other since the show ended.
4. Sarah Jessica Parker And Kim Cattrall
Everyone watched Sex and The City, that show was incredible. But did you know that in real life, the lead ladies weren’t as tight as their characters? In fact, there’s always been rumors that SJP and Kim Cattrall don’t get along. Apparently it all started because SJP was earning more than her co-stars, but we’ll never know the truth, since both ladies have either stayed mute about the matter, or denied the rumors.
