On-screen couples who didn’t like each other on set

Ultimately, the efforts did not bear fruit, and in the 2004 film, we saw chronicles of unhappy love, including legendary scenes, in the duo’s original version. The story could have ended here, but like every successful love story, it had its twist. Two years later, Gosling and McAdams met by chance in New York, and after some time, their on-screen love began to blossom in reality. In 2007, the acting duo broke up.

Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio – “Romeo and Julia”
Director Baz Luhrmann, in his original vision of Shakespeare’s famous drama, has cast two young actors with prospects for a great career. Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes played lovers with the grace of seasoned professionals. When the cameras stopped rolling, there was resentment rather than friendliness at the forefront. The future star of “Titanic” was supposed to diversify his work by joking with members of the film crew. The fun was not appreciated by the serious Dane, who was viewed by DiCaprio as somewhat stiff and lacking a sense of humour.

Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke – “9 1/2 Weeks”

We didn’t talk for a long time. – the actress admitted. – We argued about anything. We couldn’t look at each other – Duchovny said. But today the relationship between the two seems completely different, and the actors return to the screens after many years in new seasons of “The X-Files” series.

Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly – “Singin’ in the Rain”

The process of creating this legendary music has a dark side. The subject of contention between the stars of the production – Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly – was their dancing skills. The actress, who had more experience in gymnastics than dancing, had to match the skills of the great performers on screen. Because of her mistakes, delayed shooting, and constant criticism of star and director only served to destroy Reynolds’ already weak self-confidence. She herself admitted years later that, apart from giving birth, “Singin’ in the Rain” was the hardest challenge of her life. Kelly did not hide his bad attitude: I wasn’t nice to Debbie. I’m surprised he still wants to talk to me.

Anthony Hopkins and Shirley MacLaine – “Change of Seasons”

For Anthony Hopkins to be called “the most terrible actor I have ever worked with” must be a great honor. The two-time Oscar winner said this about Shirley MacLaine, star of “Steel Magnolias,” “The Suite” and “Terms of Endearment.” Two screen legends didn’t like each other on the set of the comedy-drama “The Changing” from Seasons. Relationship traumas and abuse come to the surface when the couple and their lovers go skiing in the same country house. The opportunity to rebuild the relationship only appears on screen, especially since Years later, MacLaine spoke of her co-star in a similar tone.

Richard Gere and Debra Winger – “An Officer and a Gentleman”

The melodrama directed by Taylor Hackford tells the story of a young student at the Port Rains Experimental School, who undergoes assassin training. Debra Winger plays his on-screen love interest.

Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray – “Dirty Dancing”

There was no difference between fantasy and reality in the conversations between the stars of “The Kramer Affair.” Dustin Hoffman is famous for his acting style based on the Stanislavski method. His dedicated preparation was also reflected in his teammates. This time the victim was the inexperienced Meryl Streep. The actor allegedly used various tricks to get the best possible performance from his on-screen wife.
