Costars who hated each other-And it showed

Costars hate each other all the time, that's not new. But they can usually pull it together long enough to pretend in front of the cameras. Any examples of costars who weren't professional or talented enough to disguise their contempt for their costar?

I imagine this happens on soaps a lot where they aren't the best actors and they don't have time to screw around, they have to get thru their scenes on schedule. And not exactly the same thing but co-hosts/anchors seem to hate each other a lot too and since they aren't actors they aren't as good at hiding it.

I don't know if they truly hated each other, But Kirk Douglas (in his first movie) disliked Barbara Stanwyck for ignoring him off camera in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers. I need to hear the entire story in Vol 2 of Victoria Wilson's bio if I'm still alive when it comes out. I have a feeling that not everyone was fond of Stanwyck or her "one of the boys" reputation. I think her being dismissive of Douglas is obvious beyond the role. Then again the whole thing could be just a male ego that can't take being ignored by the star.

Excalibur, the guilty pleasure of 1981.

Boorman cast Nicol Williamson as Merlin and Helen Mirren as Morgana, precisely because they utterly loathed one another. He wanted that animosity to bleed through into their roles and onto the film. The story goes that when each of them learned that the other had been cast, they pleaded with Boorman to change his mind. To their credit, it is reported that they behaved with impeccable professionalism on the set, but in those scenes where they had dialog together, the intense dislike is palpable.

The reason behind the hatred is allegedly down to a play they were in some years previously, which got panned by the critics. They both took a professional knock after that, and each of them blamed the other for it. Hell hath no fury like a luvvie scorned.

R46, James Dean was an out-of-control punk who spent as much time shitting on his talent as making it pay through his craft. He was spoiled so fast and so needy that his histrionics and misplaced "emotions" ruined many scenes he was in. Hudson and Taylor and everyone else who dealt with the "East of Eden"/"Giant" phase of his late adolescence suffered for it. He was, except in "Rebel Without a Cause," a selfish and rather hateful actor, at least in character.

His masochism in his "real" life may suggest some of the torments he faced, and even Brando (who fucked him) avoided his calls and pleas. Not. Fun.

Ethel Merman and Fernando Lamas.

During rehearsal of HAPPY HUNTING, Lamas interrupted the proceedings to ask director Abe Burrows 'Excuse me. Is this how it's going to be?'

Burrows nervously replies 'How what is going to be, Mr. Lamas?'

Lamas : "I am addressing my lines to Miss Merman and Miss Merman is addressing her lines to the audience'. (a trait or hers, BTW, that other co-stars had not appreciated in earlier shows).

Dead silence.

Merman: 'Mr. Lamas, I'll have you know I have been playing scenes like this on Broadway for 25 years.'

Lamas: 'Miss Merman, that doesn't mean you're right. It just means that you're old.'

Lamas also has the trousers on his white suit recut to accentuate his famously large endowment. At the first performance in Philadelphia, his initial appearance in those pants drew gasps from the audience. Merman was livid (no way was she going to be upstaged, let alone by a penis).

During the entire run of the show, they only spoke to each other on stage.

Well the whole show was a mess by the end so it wasn't just their lack of chemistry you noticed. Cybill took time off to have a baby so there were episodes where she was barely there or they had no scenes together. It's been years since I watched but there was definitely a tonal change to the show by the end. It lost the fun, light-hearted spirit of the first couple seasons and Willis clearly didn't want to be there.

Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey have disliked each other since working on fantasy dragon epic Reign of Fire, 20 years ago. Bale was in his early unmedicated "I am and ACTOR" phase and McBongo was, well, McBongo. Polar opposite personalities, they weren't friendly during filming. There's a scene where MM's character coldcocks Bale's, during the take McConaughey wound up and actually knocked Bale completely out cold for a few minutes. The crew wasn't displeased.

Flash forward years to the Oscars where both are nommed for actor, the live camera nicely catches Bale's muted reaction when MM's name is called.

What happened on the set of 'Charmed?' Shannen Doherty is what happened. She's always been a problematic actress, even when she was on 'Beverly Hills 90120.' She's known for bringing out the worst in her castmates. I remember when she used to get into fights at clubs and was on bad terms with all her exes. Will never be able to figure out how she consistently got work. Her asymmetrical face alone should have been enough to make casting agents say, "um, no."

Noel Coward and Claudette Colbert in the television version of Blithe Spirit (1956). He said he'd wring her neck -- if she had one.

Peter Fonda was so appalled by Warren Beatty's treatment of the seriously ill Robert Rossen, director of Lilith (1964), that he wanted to round up some crew members and teach WB a lesson in civility.

Joan Fontaine disliked Cary Grant on the set of Suspicion (1941) and found him a terrible fraud for playing polished gentlemen when he was a barely literate boy from Bristol. She was probably working off anger against the polished British cast of the previous year's Rebecca, when the whole cast -- but especially Laurence Olivier, who wanted the part of "I" to go to Vivien Liegh -- treated Joan patronizingly. Hitchcock allowed it because it made Fontaine nervous and reticent, just like the second Mrs. De Winter.

"Although the Moonlighting co-stars had a highly publicized feud on set, they apparently had enough chemistry to have a quick fling off camera. Back in 2000, Cybill admitted that the tension became so strong, she eventually turned to Bruce one day and said, "Are we going to do something about this or what?" Bruce later visited her house with a bottle of wine, but after a heated makeout session, they both decided to not take things further because of their careers. "Maybe Bruce likes the chase better than the catch," she wrote in her book. "We never did finish what we'd started in private, but any time we had a kissing scene, he stuck a big camel tongue halfway down my throat."

Cary Grant was a character played to perfection in front of the camera, the real man was grouchy, insecure, and the kind of perfectionist who drove his co-workers nuts.

One time he drove his costumer so crazy with his endless nitpicking about the fit of his cuffs and collars and the other details of tailoring, that the costumer went to the film's director to complain. "But that's what we're paying for!", was the director's response. "We want him to LOOK like Cary Grant, so let him nitpick all he likes".

He knew that his success was legitimately achieved and was very much the result of his own effort and skill, he was an extremely intelligent and hard-working man, and earned everything he ever had.

However, he must have felt as lonely and isolated as all hell, since the secret of his success was hiding his true self, and creating a new identity that everyone on earth preferred to the real man.

R33 In a rare instance of actors mending fences, Mirren said she and Williamson eventually became friends.

Q: I heard that Boorman cast you and Nicol Williamson, who played Merlin, because the two of you didn’t get along, and it generated a very specific kind of tension on-screen.

A: We had done a production of MacBeth prior to that, and our relationship was horrendous. Nicol is a very brilliant, but very dark, troubled man. He has so much talent in so many different directions, but he just…he couldn’t bear me, and was very nasty to me. I don’t think I was nasty to him at all, but he just hated me. When I went to see John about the film, he said “I’m thinking about Nicol for Merlin,” I said I didn’t think I could do it then, because we had this horrible relationship. John convinced me that he would help to make it work, and of course, being greedy and wanting the role, I said ‘Fuck it.

Winona Ryder & Angelina Jolie on the set of Girl Interrupted. AJ wanted to stay in character between scenes, i.e., be the alpha female.

[quote] In accordance with Lee Strasberg's method acting, Jolie preferred to stay in character in between scenes during many of her early films, and as a result had gained a reputation for being difficult to deal with. While shooting Gia, she told her husband, Jonny Lee Miller, that she would not be able to phone him: "I'd tell him: 'I'm alone; I'm dying; I'm gay; I'm not going to see you for weeks.'"

No one I can think of bad mouths Robert Redford, but for all of his nice guy unaffected by stardom reputation, his acting style and prep is that of a grade-b TV actor. Wouldn't rehearse because it ruined his "spontaneity," couldn't do more than three takes. This did not go over well with trained actors he worked with, and that includes Paul Newman. Add in - extremely vain, always late, disappeared for hours or didn't show up. Redford was on the outs with the director he worked with the most, Sydney Pollack, for years because of his "movie star behavior." This info is in the Redford biography - that he cooperated with - by Michael Feeney Callan.

Redford was supposed to play the lead, Frank Galvin, in "The Verdict", but he kept insisting that he wanted the character changed so that Galvin was not an alcoholic.

When he didn't get his way, Redford left and Paul Newman took the role and got an Oscar nomination. Years later Newman said that Galvin was a character that he would like to revisit to find out what had happened to him.

After hearing this story about RR, I began to realize how many of the Redford roles cast him in this "perfect" image. His insistence on this kind of character makes me see that he's not very bright. How could anyone fail to see that Galvin's alcoholism is a key, important point in painting his flawed character? For Redford to insist that that be removed reveals his own severe vanity.

I've heard he insisted on similar changes (removing character flaws) in other movies - "The Horse Whisperer" for one.

Too bad, really, because Redford's portrayal of a real SOB in "Downhill Racer" early in his career was very good. RR probably had no power then to insist on changes.

The irony is, R147, as a director, Redford said he wouldn't like to work with an actor like him. I take that to mean, flighty and undisciplined, unwilling to rehearse.

R149, Redford had a problem with alcohol for decades, perhaps that's why he didn't want to play one at that time. He was a huge movie star and could at least try to make them change The Verdict to suit him, ha ha.

Before he was a mega star, Redford played several shallow movie characters - in Downhill Racer, as mentioned, The Candidate, The Way We Were (yes), a motorcycle movie and a western I can't remember the titles. He started in TV playing heavys, even a Nazi. After The Way We Were* when he was introduced to the female audience as a romantic idol, he focused more on producing and chose only to act hero characters to suit the image of a movie poster boy. I will cut Redford some slack because he was consuming too much alcohol and involved behind the scenes of movies like All the President's Men.

If Redford had moved away from hero roles and let his hair grown dark (and grey) he could have gone on for years as a character actor like say Robert Ryan or Richard Widmark was. Paul Newman let his looks go if it suited a character.

R152, James "where's my coke dealer" Caan hated Ray Stark, not Streisand. Streisand was kind of uninvolved in Funny Lady because she hated it, so Caan was not fully exposed to her megalomania - because there wasn't any.

Perhaps Redford wasn’t so much a diva as he was insecure about his limitations as an actor.

R157, I get what you mean, but playing an alcoholic or the alcoholic part of a character is very easy. And at the level of stardom Redford was at the time, he probably believed he could play anything, it's an ego thing.

Here's something funny about The Way We Were. Redford thought Streisand was a singer, he didn't know she was also an actress - that's one of the reasons he was hesitant to do the movie and NO ONE ever mentions it (it was in the Callan book). He knew she had been on Broadway in a musical, probably heard a record of hers on the radio, saw her on a magazine cover. That's it. Even when Streisand and Redford appeared on Oprah together a few years ago and they talked about the movie, Redford mentioned his worrying that Streisand may not be up to the role. It was said subtly, like is she willing to work hard on it as if she was this singer suddenly required to read lines. Streisand looked confused.

He doesn't sound like much of a TV watcher or someone who instantly went to the entertainment section of a newspaper. But mostly, I don't think he had much if any interest in Streisand as a singer, actress or whatever.

Streisand likes to say that Redford is very complex, he "has something going on behind his eyes." That's supposed to mean he's not the cold, vapid introvert he appears to be so often on screen. This is from 1969 - notice Redford, far away, not interacting, looking like he wants to go home.

Ken Levine, a Cheers and Frasier writer, gave a great defense of Long:

Now let me say a few words about Shelley’s behavior. She could be difficult. She could be obstinate. She could over-think something to death. But it was never out of spite. It was just her very exacting process. At times I will admit it was frustrating. And exhausting. But Shelley has a good heart. She is a sweet person. And in her defense, she had an incredibly complex difficult character to play. To make Diane Chambers loveable and funny while still maintaining her haughty attitude took a very special actress. It would be so easy to just hate Diane. Shelley did an extraordinary job. I can't think of a single actress who could have done the role better... or even as well. So if it took her longer to find the moments and just the right shading then tough. The results were on the screen.

I'm glad to hear the defense of Shelley Long from her former co-workers. I remember Ted Danson defending her and saying, like the writer at R170, that yes, she was difficult and her process could be annoying and tedious, but damn if she wasn't almost always right. Danson said he got to the point where he'd tell the cast to just let her work through it because they always came out with a better scene. I have read she and Ncholas Colosanto got along very well and she was devastated by his passing, as were the rest of the cast and crew. He also saw that he process worked.

The proof is indeed in the pudding. When I watch Cheers back, I get all the way through the Diane years and love re-watching the show, but when I get to the Kirstie Alley years, you can see the drop in quality. It wasn't a bad show, but it wasn't as good as it had been. The rest of the crew and cast were happy when Kirstie Alley came along because they got to knock off work earlier and Alley did her scenes with no multiple takes. But the drop in quality is evident. Still, it didn't affect the popularity of the show, which remained a huge hit until it bowed out when Danson quit, and it's only season as #1 was a Kirstie Alley season. But the Diane years are still the best.

Found the NYT review of the Redford biography, R171:

But (the author) has a tendency to highlight Redford’s pretentiousness rather than deflate it. For instance, he stands by mutely as Redford explains his initial reluctance to appear in “The Way We Were,” opposite Streisand: “What I was really worried about was the whole concept of basing a movie on Barbra as a serious actress. . . . She had never been tested.” Callan might have pointed out that Streisand had already been “tested” in pictures like “The Owl and the Pussycat” and especially “Funny Girl,” and that perhaps what Redford was actually expressing was misguided disdain for comedy — or maybe just plain old snobbishness.

I won't turn this into a soap thread. But the problem in that genre is that they film so much in so short a time, and if you and your onscreen partner have great chemistry and become popular, then you are stuck with someone you loathe.

Also, weirdly, hating someone and/or the tension of it all can actually read as passion on screen. Soaps have also been filled with two actors who either got together or got married while coupled onscreen, and they become boring as fuck once the tension is gone.

The real trick with these feuds lies with who was actually trying to tell the story they were brought into to help tell and the one who disrupted the flow or didn't want to do something everyone else was on board with.

With someone like Shelley Long, it doesn't sound like she was demanding rewrites to make her character nicer, omit swear words, or reshoot takes where she looked less attractive. It seemed to come from an actual interest in trying to tell the story. Her biggest crimes was not reading the room and caring too much about a fucking sitcom.

With Cybill, she clearly wanted to be seen in the best light even if it was at an injustice to the story or character. That's not someone who was on everyone else's team. Those are the ones who become the real problems.

The point the writer was making was that the story purposes of Diane were so varied and important to the show that they had to be spread around to three characters when she was gone. It was not that Diane was literally replaced in season 6 by 3 new characters. (It was probably Owen Gleiberman in EW.)

Shirley was always a professional - on time, knew her lines, and delivered a great performance.She might have been a lousy mother, wife, partner, neighbor, friend, etc. but she's not one to cause a lot of drama on a set. Debra was the one who caused the issues on the set and acted unprofessionally. The reason she kept getting work for so long was that, at the end of the day, she turned in a great performance. Still, even if you keep turning in wonderful performance after wonderful performance, if you haven't grown enough as a person to stop being a self-absorbed cunt, people aren't going to want to work with you anymore.

The best actors sign on to a script having understood what's being asked of them and do the job without being a pain in the ass. Now, if the script is abruptly changed on the set, I think they have every right to speak their mind and have their concerns addressed since that's not the script they signed on for, but I have no respect for the spoiled actors who take up valuable time reshooting scenes because they didn't like they way they were lit or because they suddenly decided they didn't want to do the sex scene they agreed to that was in the script. That's just being a pain in the ass.

Accept no substitutes - no Sharon Stone instead. Sarah refused to cop to that. For her it was all about the audience and the team, meanwhile her flying monkeys were trashing Kim. They wanted her to make the movie to give them a paycheck. Sarah would have script control, the story would be about her, she'd be paid the most, but the movie couldn't be made without Kim. That's what they all can't stand. And the fact that the rest of them probably need the paycheck and she doesn't.

If she wants her character written in a certain way then she will get it. It's different to say one of the Friends cast demanding funnier lines over their co stars. That would not go down well. The producer and titled star wanting funnier lines in their own show? Not a surprise. I think in the end it was to the detriment of the show itself but it was basically Cybill's show to ruin.

While I'd say what most of these troublemaking people have in common is that they have very little talent (after all, you don't see Meryl Streep demanding more lines or to be lit in a certain way), I wonder how you can explain someone like Faye Dunaway who seems to bring trouble everywhere she goes, but who is legitimately talented. Same with Debra Winger. I love watching them on screen, but I'd never want to work with them. With them, it must be legitimate mental illness or drug problems.

The general rule of thumb is that, if an actor demands rewrites to make their character more likable or have more to do, new lighting to make them look prettier/younger, or another actor to be replaced because they're getting more laughs/attention than them, they're probably not a very good actor to begin with. Only people with zero self-esteem would do that.

While that is true, Cybill didn't understand the dynamics of the show. She was supposed to be the "straight man" on the show. She sets up the joke so somebody else can land the laugh. Cybil was not a comic actress. Had she wanted to be the one to land the laughs, she should have had the show set up differently from the beginning. You can't set up the premise of a show and then get mad because you aren't getting laughs. She should have studied Mary Tyler Moore's show to figure out how to be the glamourous lead and yet land a few laughs. And Valerie Harper was also an excellent case study. On MTM, Valerie was excellent at getting the laughs. When she was spun off on her own show, she had to cede laughs to Julie Kavner and Carlton the Doorman.

R307 Speaking of Meryl and Faye and their varying degrees of professionalism, a few years ago, Rutanya Alda, who played Carol Ann in "Mommie Dearest" and John Savage's wife in "The Deer Hunter," gave an interview at a screening of "Mommie Dearest."

She talked about how Faye Dunaway would never be on set when it was time for Rutanya's closeups. Instead, some lackey would stand in and read Faye's lines while Rutanya played to that person for her closeups. She even talked about the scene where Carol Ann cries when she sees Joan Crawford in the casket at the end of the movie. Rutanya walks onto the set, and Faye has put a picture of herself in the coffin for Rutanya to play to!

Then she talked about how on the set of "The Deer Hunter," Meryl Streep would always be on set during the closeup scenes for the other actors and would read her lines and act just like she was on camera, even if she wasn't. She had nothing but nice things to say about Meryl. She said she always wondered what had caused Faye to be such a miserable person on set and often wondered why Faye was even in the movie business at all, since she genuinely seemed to hate everything about it.

R312 oh I completely agree, her situation was just different. Cybill was actually great in the first season with Christine. Genuinely good chemistry and they were believable friends but when Christine was stealing the show and Chuck Lorre left you could see the tone change. In the end though that was Cybill's choice and shot herself in the foot. I did see an interview with a few years ago when Big Bang Theory hit some milestone. The interviewer asked her if she regretted Chuck Lorre leaving her show as it could've ran for much longer and she said she'd rather the show had ended after season 1 if she was forced to continue with him. She maybe said that to save face but I really wish Chuck Lorre would write a tell all. Cybill would probably get off the lightest compared to some of the nightmares he's worked with.

So many characters in film and television were based on Cybill. Sharon Stone, Annette Bening, Catherine O’Hara and Katey Segal have all played a character based on her. And Annie Potts played a version of her on stage.

What makes it even more interesting is that both Segal and Potts has worked with her previously, so I doubt they would have agreed to play an unflattering version of her if they actually liked her.

There must be performances based on Faye Dunaway too? Cybill sounds like a royal pain but nothing in comparison to batshit crazy Faye!

Cybill is the classic case of a fairly unremarkable and untalented actress who didn't understand her range. Everything she ever did was to make herself look good, not to tell a story or suit a character. Sometimes, she got lucky and her ideas matched the creative team's, but she never really had "it." She was pleasant to watch in an aesthetic way, but her acting always reminded me of that overeager Baptist pastor's wife in the spring musical at some community theatre somewhere, especially on Cybill where she's constantly seem to be about to crack up at her own jokes as if to tell the audience "see, this isn't really me? Can you believe I said something so bawdy?"

Re Merman, you can see it in the clip of "Annie Get Your Gun" from the Ed Sullivan Show in 1965. The entire chorus is focused on Merman, but Merman - even though she is blocked to move to various chorus members and sing to them - refuses to look at anyone and just focuses straight out. Apparently the only show where she didn't do this was "Gypsy." Unfortunately, Ethel learned from a bunch of old vaudevillians, and that style of acting was archaic even by the end of the 1930s.

No. The script of GYPSY is a real script, and real acting is required, whether Rose is a self-centered character or not. As it happens, both Sondheim and Laurents talked about being proud that their show was the only one where Merman actually related to the other actors. Jerry Robbins basically let her know that he was expecting something different from her usual schtick, and Merman was smart enough to know she needed to respect him and work her acting ass off on this one. It wasn't another "Happy Hunting," it was the highlight of her career, and she knew it.

Bella Darvi was an actual concentration camp survivor who became Darryl Zanuck's mistress and hence an actress. When Mrs Zanuck found her Bela (who she had befriended) was fucking hubby that ended their marriage. He gave her a big role in The Egyptian which was to star Marlon Brando.

[quote] Marlon Brando was originally scheduled to appear opposite Darvi in the Technicolor epic The Egyptian (1954). During the script read-through before filming began, the pair disliked each other at first sight. Bella, cast as the courtesan Nefer, was also jeered by more experienced star Jean Simmons who laughed with other cast members that Darvi was "an actress who 'nefer' was." Just as filming was to start, Brando refused to make the film, his agent telling studio head Darryl F. Zanuck: "He doesn't like the director, he doesn't like the role. And he can't stand Bella Darvi!" Edmund Purdom was cast in the role.

I actually like the film but would fast forward through Bela's scenes.

The way Jimmie Walker describes his relationships with the Good Times co-stars is not unusual for most shows. They don't lunch together, they do not call each other after work, they don't socialize outside of work. In other words, a TV family is not a real family no matter what bullshit they spew in from of the cameras. Walker probably doesn't know this because he never got another regular role on a sitcom.

Nick Nolte and Jessica Lange hated each other during the making of "Cape Fear," and it bothered young Juliette Lewis so much that she went to director Martin Scorcese to express her concern.

R377, I've seen a few bits and pieces on t'Interwebz about the Cheers cast, and Kelsey Grammer seems no better or worse than most of them. They were all pretty dysfunctional at one time or another. I don't think he has a problem with gay - he's played gay before, and he was by all accounts very close to John Mahoney (who played his father in Frasier), and was deeply upset when he died. Mahoney is widely-believed, at least by DL, to have been gayer than the gayest gay who ever gayed. He and David Hyde Pierce have also said that they are as close as brothers.

Grammer deserves to be put in a blender (set to puree) for supporting Trump, but that's another story.

It's always funny that it's frequently people who aren't that talented who are problems...or, more accurately, people who THINK they're enormously talented but they're not.

Robert Redford was VERY pretty and had some charisma but he was never much of an actor. He was good playing vain pretty boys who were actually very weak but that really didn't require much acting.

And, I only really know Tom Bosley from his TV work but I find it hard to believe he was a brilliant stage presence, yet he seems to have a very high opinion of his supposed talent while looking down at others. He was fine on Happy Days (not really a role that required much from him, tbh...."genial dad" isn't that hard to play) and frankly he was TERRIBLE on Murder She Wrote...his Maine accent was embarrassingly awful.

As for Rhea Perlman, that bitch got lucky with a role she could do well (bitchy little troll) and she has attitude about other actors? Piss on her.

He won the 1960 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical. There was a lot of controversy about his being nominated in the Featured category as his was the title role and the largest part in the show. The show was Fiorello! about the famous former NYC Mayor La Guardia. The show itself shared the Tony Award for Best Musical with The Sound of Music that year and won the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

Frawley: "She's one of the finest gals to come out of Kansas, and I often wish she'd go back there. I don't know where she is now and she doesn't know where I am. That's exactly the way I like it."

Vance: "I loathed William Frawley and the feeling was mutual. Whenever I received a new script, I raced through it, praying that there wasn't a scene where we had to be in bed together."

William Frawley died in 1966 at the age of 79, after seeing a movie and walking back to his hotel. When she heard the news, Vivian Vance was dining in a restaurant. Her reputed reply to the news was: "Champagne for everybody!"

The Andrews Sisters weren't speaking to each by the end of the run of their Broadway musical Over Here! The planned national tour was canceled because of the feud.

The reason according to the mainstream media was that Patty had negotiated a much better deal with the producers than had Maxene, with all kinds of perks like free limousine service. The sisters had negotiated their contracts separately, not together. Maxene was indeed very upset.

But only the National Enquirer, years later, posted the rest of the story. During the run of the show, Maxene quietly came out as lesbian and regularly went to girl bars after the show. Uptight fundamentalist Christian Patty was livid and stopped speaking to her. Maxine spent years trying to reconcile with Patty and they were at least finally on speaking terms at the time of Maxine's death.

Robert Mitchum and Katharine Hepburn on the set of Undercurrent

by Anonymousreply 45605/12/2020

Jane Fonda has talked about how greatly she was disliked by Katherine Hepburn and the friction it created on the set of "On Golden Pond." Not sure it shows in the movie, because Hepburn always seemed to hold everyone in contempt.

Betty Buckley was escorted off the set of Simply Irresistible right before the lunch break at Silvercup East Studios in NY. She’d been a cunt from the very beginning of production. She was late to set because she kept the driver waiting a half hour in front of her building. She proceeded to blame the costume designer for keeping her up too late for an emergency fitting at her apartment the night before but it was SHE who showed up for it an hour late because she was partying. Final straw was while working in a scene with Sarah Michelle Gellar just before lunch she insisted they shoot from the other side of her face. A make-up gal told me “She made Sarah Michelle cry at one point. Big mistake.” Sarah Michelle was a silent producer on the film. Bye, bye Betty. And she looked like shit in the remaining footage of her which ended up in the final cut. All departments went all out to sabotage her looks onscreen.

R465. Barbara Bel Geddes left either due to health reasons or because the producers wouldn't meet her salary demands (depending on who you ask). So she was replaced with Donna Reed. But after one season, Bel Geddes wanted back on the show because she couldn't stand to see somebody else play Miss Ellie. Reed, however, refused to quit and threatened to sue. The cast and crew, lead by Hagman, wanted their beloved Barbara back, so they treated Reed poorly, hoping to drive her out. Producers finally fired her during the off season and brought back Bel Geddes.

Some good stories. Keep them coming.

I've often wondered why Betty Buckley didn't have more of a film/TV career. She was always photogenic. Until she put on weight in recent years, she had matured into a handsome, appealing older woman, and she's a better actress than Blythe Danner and some other women her age who seem to score a lot of supporting work in TV and films.

OTOH, Blythe Danner isn't batshit crazy.

Betty and Mandy Patinkin should have done a tv series where they played a Broadway couple like Lunt & Fontanne. Each of them could have sang on a couple of episodes, Mandy's personality would be perfect for a bombastic theater actor who is eyeing young chorus girls on the side and Betty's steely demeanor would have been great for the calculating leading lady who gets the supporting actress fired. Throw in Paula Pell as the mouthy personal assistant and John Slattery as the smarmy agent. That's what Smash should have been.

The Lee Majors - Barbara Stanwyck story sounds very plausible, but I always thought she seemed the most maternal with him. They had a nice chemistry. Maybe because in the early shows her character went out of her way to show Heath that she viewed him as one of the family, even if he was not technically her son. I still catch it in repeats occasionally. Some of the episodes have held up pretty well. It was not a bad show and seems like it could have gone on a few more seasons.

I remember watching the Tonight Show after the Cheers finale. Most of the cast, except Danson I believe, was visibly drunk and acted like they were twenty year old college students. I can see them not being happy with someone trying to work hard to get her character right.

I just watched the first season on Netflix. Carla is a good foil for Diane, but is not really that funny of a character (I was also surprised to find how a little Coach goes a long way). If I remember correctly Carla just gets meaner as the series continues. By the last season, all of the characters seem to truly hate each other or at least view each other with contempt. The actors on set might have gotten along at that time, but the fictional bar itself seemed like a pretty toxic place.

by Anonymousreply 47605/18/2020

R485 and R486, Hagman did not like Donna Reed from day one. Barbara Bel Geddes left because of health issues, not money. The strain of working long hours on a series took its toll on her. The producers would not accommodate her, so she left the show. Donna Reed just did not click as Miss Ellie. Surprisingly, she lacked the warmth mixed with steel spine that Bel Geddes brought to the role. She just never fit in. I'm sure it didn't help that Larry Hagman hated her right away.

After having a lot of time off, Bel Geddes began to heal. Hagman and Linda Gray started to reach out to Bel Geddes to entice her to come back. Hagman pushed the producers to give Bell Geddes more money AND to accommodate her request for a reduced work schedule. I mean, everyone could see Donna Reed just didn't work in the part. For the first and only time, Dynasty beat out Dallas in the ratings that season, and many blamed it on Donna Reed, which probably isn't fair. Everyone jumped at the chance to get the "real" Miss Ellie back, especially as they were losing Patrick Duffy that year, too. Reed did sue but died and it went nowhere. Apparently she was bitter about getting fired until the end.

Buckley is more known for her stage work, but I find her to be usually far less mannered on film than on stage. I've seen her a handful of times on stage and always walked away thinking that she was one of the coldest performers I'd ever seen. She used to have a fantastic voice, but as that's diminished over the years, her lack of charm and charisma have become more and more abundant. Casting her in a role like Dolly only put a spotlight on it.

It's odd, because she was incredibly warm and appealing as the gym teacher in Carrie. I know she has it in her, but maybe it takes the right director to bring it out.

I loved those "Sally Field Programme" threads! There was a recap for just about every new episode of B&S. (Back when DL had real trafffic! Sigh.)

I do recall that (allegedly) everyone hated Rachel Griffiths, who was notoriously difficult and unhygienic (smells bad and chain smokes). Yes, Balthazar Getty was a druggy (and untalented) disaster and basically written off the show. The series became a power grab between the original team (writer/producer Jon Robin Baitz, fired from his own show; Calista Flockhart, who was supposed to be The Star and more central to the story) and newbies like Greg Berlanti (new showrunner) and director Ken Olin and his wife, Patricia Wettig who played Holly.

If Stanwyck had had her way, the Lee Majors character would have been HER illegitimate son, not her dead husband's. Stanwyck said that in a book interview. But this was the 1960s, and plot lines were not allowed to be that interesting contrary to popular opinion.

R477 untrue. Bel Geddes wanted more money and a lighter work schedule. Her manager overplayed his hand. Hagman confirmed this when he was alive. He thought she should’ve gotten Larry involved to get what she wanted but relied on her manager. She tried to get her job back, but the producers decided to recast.

by Anonymousreply 53805/25/2020

Well R477, to be fair, there are differing versions. Larry's was one, but Barbara Bel Geddes narrowly avoided a heart attack during the 1982-83 season, and had open heart surgery during the 1983-84 season and missed 11 episodes. She was not well. It may very well be that her agent overplayed their position negotiating for the 1984-85 season, but given the loss of Jim Davis a few years before, it just doesn't make sense they'd send her packing and hire someone new without further negotiations. Plus Bel Geddes knew the power Hagman had on that show, so her not approaching him to help just doesn't ring true. I've also seen and/or read other interviews with other former cast members who said Bel Geddes really was worn out after her health difficulties. According to them, she quit when they wouldn't accommodate a reduced work schedule for the 1984-85 season.

Whichever story is true, we can all agree on the following: Bel Geddes had health difficulties related to her heart, something happened in the negotiations for the 1984-85 season that led to Bel Geddes leaving the show, Donna Reed didn't click as a replacement (even the critics described her as wooden), and it all led to Hagman lobbying successfully with both Bel Geddes and the producers to get her back on the show.

Dallas had Larry, Victoria, Linda and Patrick, so they felt the audience wouldn’t care if they poorly recast. It just doesn’t work with prime time shows. Considering how little Miss Ellie had to do this season, I’m unsure why they just couldn’t accommodate her.

[quote]Robert Mitchum and Katharine Hepburn on the set of Undercurrent

How apt!

R561 Mitchum denied it in an interview I saw and was very adamant. He was like, "Believe me, I would have remembered it if that happened. BELIEVE me."

Or maybe he just didn't want to admit to being an asshole

Did he ever admit to letting Clifton Webb give him blowjobs?

by Anonymousreply 56406/06/2020

R564 Robert Wagner said, "Clifton was a homosexual. But he never made a pass at me."

Sure, Jan.

It was supposedly Hepburn who was nasty to him. “You know you can’t act, and if you hadn’t been good looking you would never have gotten a picture." When asked about this he said it didn't happen.

r566, or maybe he didn't want people to know that other stars thought he was talentless.

The L&S Intro is awful---it's obvious they're on a soundstage and the lighting is all wrong for winter, and the gags are all really wared over.

R531 I wonder if that was really true - seems like they got along afterward, for sure

Yeah maybe, maybe, I'm just telling you what he said, he denied it.

Hepburn was a wizened, resentful, mean old cunt. Now and forever.

Mackenzie Phillips was on Valerie Bertinelli's cooking show for the first time today on the Food network. They didn't talk much about the old days, they just ate........😁

On the final episode of The Lucille Ball–Desi Arnaz Show* - the hour-long version of I Love Lucy - in 1960, guest star Edie Adams said they weren't speaking to each other. And of course Frawley and Vance always hated each other.

R548, I think Galecki was sad looking because Leonard hated living with Sheldon.

I'd play straight man to anyone if it meant having a great long lucrative run like everyone on that show had.

Exactly R576 the leads of that show all have FUCK YOU money. Who gives a shit which character is popular when you can wipe your ass with $100 bills?

And I believe the original cast members even took a pay cut so the newer cast could get a raise. I doubt they'd have done that if there was animosity on the set.

Because the only reason people become actors is to make huge money? They wouldn't be in that profession if that was their only goal, because they could also have been poor. Chances are they want to be playing a popular character and getting the attention.

It could be that just playing that particular whiny sad sack character year after year was depressing, regardless of the money.

8 is Enough OWNS this thread. The Fug Sisters resented Dianne Kay. Betty Buckley antagonized everyone when she slammed the lame scripts.

Sammi Ware and shit in her wig Lea Michele, although Lea would never consent to calling Sammi a costar.

Bob Denver and Tina Louise loathed each other and were not on speaking terms. Denver spread around that Louise often had noisy visits with male guests in her dressing room. No one liked her very much but the enmity between her and Denver was noted.

^^^ by "visits" I meant "trysts".

R585 Thanks for clarifying.

As mentioned much earlier, Patti LuPone and Bill Smitrovich hated each other on the set of “Life Goes On”. Predictably, each holds the other responsible for this. In her memoir, Patti claims it was “oil and water” between the two of them from the first audition, and that Bill soon proved himself a bully who tried to direct other cast members and caused huge blowouts. LuPone says she spoke to others who worked with him, and they confirmed he could be a real asshole.

Smitrovich, however, claims LuPone showed up with the expectation that the series would be “Patti LuPone Starring in ‘Life Goes On’” and was bitterly disappointed at winding up with essentially a supporting role. She never liked her character, the writing or the hours, and became so unhappy that she went out of her way to make everyone else miserable as well. He labeled her a very “guileful” woman.

The truth is probably in the middle. Both come across as huge finger pointers who don’t accept personal responsibility for anything going wrong.

To be fair to Hepburn, Jane stunk up On Golden Pond with her hideous acting. Probably the worst performance in her career.

[quote]Roy Rodgers and his horse. True story. The horse wanted top billing. When Roy heard about this he exclaimed “horseshit!” And horse did shit..... right in Roy’s trailer.

Rogers actually loved Trigger so much that when the horse died, Rogers couldn't stand the idea of burying him in the ground. Instead, he had Trigger mounted (stuffed) by a professional taxidermist and for years the horse was the most popular exhibit at the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum. True story.

^ And forgot to mention that Trigger was actually housebroken so Rogers could take him practically anywhere when they toured together!

Mackenzie: "I love the salad you made."

Valerie: " I can't believe you used to fuck your dad. That's literally all I can think about when I look at you."

Mackenzie: "Um, the soup is good too."

Valerie: "I mean Jesus Christ you used to fuck your dad! I'm sitting here feeling grossed out and uncomfortable just being near you."
