When you watch a movie or TV show, chemistry is always important. You want to really believe the people on your screen are friends, partners, siblings, whatever. For the most part, this chemistry comes across on screen because in real life the bond was just as close.
However, some of the best on-screen duos didn't actually get along on set, which makes their chemistry that much more impressive!
Here are some co-stars who had a hate on for each other. Were you able to tell?
1. Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, Dirty Dancing
Swayze recalled working with Grey in his memoir, admitting he didn't have the patience for her antics and constant goofing around. In his opinion, she wasted too many takes by goofing off. In the teaching montage, you can see Grey laughing and Swayze looking annoyed. That wasn't acting. It was a real moment from the set.
2. Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, The X-Files
“Familiarity breeds contempt,” Duchovny stated. “We used to argue about nothing. We couldn't stand the sight of each other.”
3. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, The Notebook
Though they ended up dating in real life, McAdams and Gosling both admit to having bickered and fought throughout the filming of The Notebook.
4. Leonardo DiCaprio and Clare Danes, Romeo and Juliet
Danes was not shy about her disdain for her co-star, calling DiCaprio "very immature." Sources from the set say the two were never close unless it was necessary for filming.
