22 Costars Who Didn't Get Along in Real Life

No one likes EVERYONE they work with.

Oftentimes, costars describe each other as a second kind of family. Some of them even end up falling in love. But other times, their relationships aren't so great when the cameras stop rolling. Here are some costars who infamously didn't get along behind-the-scenes.

Jerome Flynn and Lena Headey

Despite having ample opportunity (and good plot reasons) to have met in Westeros, Flynn and Headey's Game of Thrones characters, Bronn and Cersei, have conspicuously never shared the screen. Why? Sources have said that the former real-life couple aren't on speaking terms and refuse to work together. 

"Jerome and Lena aren't on speaking terms any more and they are never in the same room at the same time," a source told The Telegraph in 2014.  "It's a pity because they appeared to have patched things up for a while, but now the word is they should be kept apart at all costs."

Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson

Though rumors that the actors outright hated each other behind-the-scenes don't seem to be true (thankfully), Luke and Lorelai's onscreen chemistry didn't translate to an awesome relationship off-camera. 

"It's fine," Graham explained to TV Guide when asked about her relationship with Patterson. "I think these characters have great chemistry and that does mirror our chemistry as people. We're not intimates."

When the reporter asked if they were "best friends," she gave a quick and definitive "no" as her answer.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall

Rumors swirled that the two Sex and the City actresses weren't great friends in real life, with claims that Cattrall had become upset when she learned that Parker earned more than her costars.

Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth

The actresses starred together on the '90s hit Beverly Hills: 90210, but Doherty left the show after Season 4, reportedly due to problems getting along with her castmates. In a 2014 interview with E! Online, Garth opened up about her own feud with Doherty.

"We were locked in this sound stage for 14-16 hours every day. There were times when we loved each other and there were times when we wanted to claw each other's eyes out," she explained.

Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano

Doherty faced costar drama again on the set of her WB series, Charmed. After several reports of behind-the-scenes drama with Alyssa Milano, Dohery left the series after Season 3. 

"There was too much drama on the set and not enough passion for the work," Doherty explained in an interview with Entertainment Tonight about her departure from the series. "I'm 30 years old and I don't have time for drama in my life anymore."

The costars have since made amends, however. In 2017, Milano told E! that they were in regular contact. "Shannen and I talk a lot on Twitter via [direct messenger] and I spoke to her maybe two or three days ago," she said. "She was on vacation and we decided that we're going to get together. That date has not been set yet."

In her memoir, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up, Rivera addressed her long-rumored feud with Glee costar Lea Michele.

The pop superstars infamously butted heads when they served as judges together on American Idol

"Mariah has been saying little things to jab at Nicki from day one of shooting," a source told People of the feud. "Mariah doesn't think Nicki can sing and doesn't think she should be judging folks. Nicki has been taking all of the jabs, but on this particular day she lost it."

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams

Gosling and McAdams had red-hot chemistry in 2004's The Notebook and it eventually translated into a real-life romance. But, early in their time working together, the costars couldn't stand one another. At one point, things got so bad that Gosling asked the director if they could bring in another actress for him to read against for his scenes. 

"Maybe I'm not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not," director Nick Cassavetes explained. "And Ryan came to me, and there's 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, 'Nick come here.' And he's doing a scene with Rachel and he says, 'Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off camera with me?' I said, 'What?' He says, 'I can't. I can't do it with her. I'm just not getting anything from this.'"

"Bea had a reserve. She was not that fond of me," she said. "She found me a pain in the neck sometimes. It was my positive attitude — and that made Bea mad sometimes. Sometimes if I was happy, she'd be furious!"

Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande

When their Nickelodeon show, Victorious, was cancelled, Grande took to social media to subtly point blame at her former costar. 

"Sweetheart the only reason Victorious ended is because 1 girl didn't want to do it," Grande wrote. "She chose to do a solo tour instead of a cast tour. If we had done a cast tour Nickelodeon would have ordered another season of Victorious while Sam and Cat filmed simultaneously but she chose otherwise. I'm sick of this bs."
