8 On-Screen Friends Who Despised Each Other Off-Screen

When actors have on-screen chemistry that gives the appearance that they are best friends when the cameras are off, it might just be that they have passable acting skills. Indeed, it is often the case that the biggest stars of TV and cinema don’t get along at all, but also realize those Beverly Hills mansions and luxury cars aren’t going to pay for themselves, so they do their best to fake it. Here are 8 well-documented cases where best friends on-screen feuded in real life.

Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

When it was announced that The Rock would join the “Fast and the Furious” franchise for 2011’s “Fast Five” as agent Luke Hobbs, fans were excited that Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto would finally meet his match. They played buddies for three subsequent movies and then things went south, with Johnson taking to social media to say some not-so-nice things about his co-star. Diesel seemed to take the high road, at least in public, although he reportedly tried to prevent the Fast spin-off “Hobbs & Shaw” featuring Johnson and Jason Statham from happening. He failed, but The Rock didn’t return in 2021’s F9.

Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley

Although things are fine between the two stars of “Vampire Diaries” now, on the “Directionally Challenged” podcast in June 2019, Dobrev confessed she did not care much for Wesley during the first few months of filming. She eventually warmed up to him and regarded him as her closest fellow cast member, which is a good thing considering an essential plot of the show called for the characters to date… for 3 ½ seasons.

Teri Hatcher and The Rest of the Desperate Housewives Cast

It’s no secret that there was tension between the ladies of Wisteria Lane, and it all pretty much came down to Teri Hatcher’s ego. She regarded herself as the lead of the show, although technically all four actresses were equal co-stars. Nicolette Sheridan declared her to be the “meanest woman in the world,” there were all sorts of squabbles over where Hatcher should be positioned on the May 2005 cover of Vanity Fair, and Marcia Cross even walked off the set because screw…Teri…Hatcher! The good news is that everything is peachy between the cast now. Just kidding! During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2018, Eva Longoria hinted that Hatcher would remain in the dog house where she belongs for all eternity.
