"[He] Was The Most Unprofessional Dude In The World" And 17 Other Comments Celebs Made Bashing Their Costars

1.Freddie Prinze Jr. hated working with Kiefer Sutherland on 24 so much that he almost quit acting altogether — and spent years taking on voice acting roles instead of on-set ones.

"Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face, I think everyone that's worked with him has said that," Prinze Jr. said. He also slightly knocked the actor's height, saying he was required to take his shoes off to do scenes with him and saying he was only 5'4.

2.T.J. Miller recently called Ryan Reynolds "horrifically mean" on the set of Deadpool — he did it in character, acting like Miller was also his character, but then seemed to insult Miller directly by saying, "You know what’s great about you, Weasel? You’re not the star, but you do just enough exposition that it’s funny and then we can leave and get back to the real movie.” Miller also called Reynolds "kind of an insecure dude," and said the uncomfortable comment left him not wanting to work with Reynolds again.

However, Reynolds reached out to Miller after the fact, and Miller later referred to the awkward on-set experience as a "misunderstanding." So...all's well that ends well, I guess.

3.Speaking of Miller...his Silicon Valley costar Alice Wetterlund once called him a "bully and petulant brat," describing working with him as "kind of a nightmare" and saying his male costars enabled him. Miller had left the show at this point, in what was said to be a mutual decision.


4.While starring in the film I Love Trouble, Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte struggled to get along. Roberts said they got on each other's nerves from the start, and called him charming but "also completely disgusting. He's going to hate me for saying this, but he seems go out of his way to repel people."

Nolte later acknowledged his own fault in their feud, but also blamed Roberts a bit: "Julia got married at the beginning of that film and it was one of those things where I just approached it all wrong.” Uh...okay, so he was offended that she was taken?

5.Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey also struggled to get along while filming Batman Forever. The problem, according to Carrey, was that Carrey was the star of the production. Apparently, about halfway through filming, Carrey ran into Jones at a restaurant. Jones hugged him and said, "I hate you. I really don’t like you" then followed up with: "I cannot sanction your buffoonery."

6.Succession actor, Brian Cox, once said that actor Steven Seagal (his costar in The Glimmer Man) is "as ludicrous in real life as he appears onscreen," adding that Seagal acts like he's "on a higher plane to the rest of us." He continued, "And while he's certainly on a different plane, no doubt about that, it's probably not a higher one," and said that Seagal thinks he's "far more capable and talented than he actually is."

7.He's also called his Succession costar, Jeremy Strong, who he's still co-starring with, by the way, "fucking annoying" in his commitment to his Method acting technique. Though, he did acknowledge it garners good results and called him a "very good actor" and "fucking gifted."

8.Tim Gunn is more a TV personality than an actor, but he did appear (as himself) on the fictional show Gossip Girl in 2010 when Jenny, played by Taylor Momsen, had an interview for Parsons. Years later, Gunn revealed he had a negative experience with Momsen, calling her a diva: "She was pathetic, she couldn't remember her lines, and she didn't even have that many. I thought to myself, Why are we all being held hostage by this brat?"

9.Not quite as biting, but Kim Cattrall has made her feelings on former Sex and the City costar Sarah Jessica Parker pretty clear. “I think she could’ve been nicer. I really think she could’ve been nicer. I don’t know what her issue is," she said in 2017, pointing out that none of her costars called her when it was rumored she was having contract issues with Sex and the City 2.

Later, after Cattrall's brother died, she posted: "I don't need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker" and followed it up with: "Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona."

For her part, Parker denied that she was in a feud with Cattrall. "I’ve never uttered fighting words in my life about anybody that I’ve worked with ever. There is not a ‘fight’ going on,” she said, though she expressed sadness over Cattrall's comments.

10.Another famous Hollywood feud is between Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. While shooting Fate of the Furious together, Johnson wrote on Instagram, “There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. My female costars are always amazing and I love ’em. My male costars, however, are a different story,” he wrote. “Some conduct themselves as stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken [shit] to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.”

While Johnson never named Diesel, many assumed he was speaking about him in the light of Diesel's response, which “I think some things may be blown out of proportion. I don't think that was his intention. I know he appreciates how much I work this franchise." and referred to himself as Johnson's big brother — which Johnson replied to, saying he wasn't.

11.Diesel also seemed to critique Johnson's acting ability, saying he had to give Johnson "a lot of tough love to assist in getting that performance where it needed to be."

12.Another actor who dissed his costar's acting was Bill Murray, who allegedly derisively called his Charlie's Angels costar Lucy Liu a "television actress." While Liu never confirmed this exact comment, she said Murray used "inexcusable and unacceptable” language and was "hurl[ing] insults."

13.Bette Davis similarly dissed longtime foe Joan Crawford — with whom Davis costarred with in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? — by saying, "Miss Crawford is a movie star, and I am an actress."

14.Ray Liotta said that out of all his costars, Sigourney Weaver was the worst kisser. The two starred together in the 2001 film Heartbreakers.

15.Jay Thomas made a similar comment — which actually may have gotten him kicked off of Cheers. On a radio show, he was asked about guest starring on the show, and said, "It's brutal. I have to kiss Rhea Perlman," though he later said he was joking.

16.And Tony Curtis once said that kissing Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot was like "kissing Hitler," though he later said they were having an affair at the time, and it's unclear if he was serious.

17.Sally Field also called Burt Reynolds her worst onscreen kiss many years after appearing with him in the 1977 film Smokey and the Bandit (and its sequel, along with the film Hooper). This is especially surprising because Field actually dated Reynolds for four years. Clarifying the problem, she said there was "a lot of drooling."

18.And finally, Millie Bobby Brown spoke about her negative experience kissing Finn Wolfhard for Stranger Things, saying it made her go "kissing sucks!" Later, when asked about these comments in Variety's lie detector test, Brown agreed with a question calling Wolfhard a lousy kisser and revealed he hadn't gotten better — with her, at least.

Honestly, I don't think we can really blame Millie for this one, since she was hooked up to a lie detector test and all.
