14 co-stars who really didn't get on

Odd List Simon Brew 27 Sep 2013 - 07:49

It's not always smiles behind the camera, as this list of feuding co-stars proves. I Love Trouble, indeed...

It's a fallacy that everyone gets on together on a movie set. Just as in an everyday office, some people get on better with others. That's as you might expect. But when it comes to film, occasionally a disagreement between two stars becomes oh-so-apparent to pretty much anyone in the stalls at their local Odeon.

This isn't designed by any measure to be a definitive list (yep, Swayze and Jennifer Grey weren't best chums making Dirty Dancing), but here are some of the more interesting examples of where co-stars simply didn't get on...

Nick Nolte & Julia Roberts I Love Trouble

To date, we struggle to think of a more bizarre screen combination for a romantic blockbuster than that of I Love Trouble. The movie, a

Mickey Rourke gets into shape for Gareth Thomas biopic

Oscar-nominated actor's preparations to play 37-year-old Welsh rugby star reportedly include surgery and weight loss

The Oscar-nominated actor Mickey Rourke has reportedly undergone surgery and lost more than two stone in his ongoing effort to portray gay Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas in a forthcoming biopic.

Rourke, 59, has hired a top personal trainer to get him into shape to play Thomas, 37, and has already had work done on his eyes, says the Daily Mail's Baz Bamingboye.
