While actors get a ton of fame and fortune for their work, it is not always an easy job. While shooting they not only have long and stressful hours but a number of other potential stressors as well. They could be dealing with a tight budget or even a very limited timeline to deal with. While those in itself can cause actors to get worked up, dealing with the potentially sensitive egos and personalities of the other actors can put them over the edge. Here are 18 actors that have feuded with one another, with #4 on the list getting particularly dirty.
#18 Robert Downey Jr. and Terrence Howard
This dispute took place on the set of Iron Man. It began once Howard was removed from the film, and questions began to come up as to why. Howard claimed that their offer to him was incredibly low, while Downey’s pay went through the roof. Howard claimed Downey pushed him out. Howard ended up getting replaced in the Iron Man movies by actor Don Cheadle.
#17 Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj
“American Idol” is a show that has seen a lot of feuds between judges and even contestants, but none bigger or more volatile than Nicki and Mariah. Their feud exploded all over the media and viewers even got to see the tension on TV. Off-screen, the two said some truly horrific things about one another that will probably mean they won’t working together again very soon.
#16 Bill Murray and Lucy Liu
Bill Murray is such a lovable guy it is hard to think of him being in a feud. But in Charlies Angels, he and Liu feuded throughout. Murray was apparently unhappy with her acting talents and there were rumors Liu punched him. Both said the physical aspect never happened and that the whole thing was blown out of proportion. For another feud that was reportedly blown out of proportion, check out the 10th entry on this list.
#15 Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre
The creator of Two and a Half Men and Sheen had a mutually amazing agreement for years. But once Sheen had his breakdown, things went south. Sheen called Lorre a “contaminated little maggot” with Lorre responding that he would be pissed if Sheen outlived him.Make sure to check out the 12th entry on this list, where two more co-stars shared some rather unflattering words about one another.
#14 Sylvester Stallone and Richard Gere
During the filming of The Lords of Flatbush, things got so bad that Gere actually had to be replaced. After Gere dropped some grease on Stallone, Stallone respected with an elbow to the head, and the tensions could not be eased without removing one of them. The next feud on the list is one where the two co-stars also came to blows.
