It appears that Bill Murray traversed a rough spot while making that film. He told the Times of London that director McG “deserves to die” (for accusing him of a head-butt). To the point, the comedian clashed with Lucy Liu on set, who he accused of ineptitude. She fought back with fists flying. During the entire filming, the two stars gave each other the cold shoulder.
But that was nothing compared with the time Murray burst out, “What in the hell are you doing here? You can’t act!” The spat sealed the deal. Murray refused to be Bosley in the sequel.
Bruce Willis and Kevin Smith
Bruce Willis and Kevin Smith’s ego battle extravaganza blew up making Cop Out. The two will never be friends. At the wrap party, after a tenuous production effort which nearly came to blows, Kevin Smith said, “I want to thank everyone who worked on the film, except for Bruce Willis . . . "
Willis wasn’t there. He had a prior, more important, engagement. Willis finally said, “Sometimes you just don’t get along.” Smith, whose childhood dream was to work with Bruce Willis, called the experience “soul-crushing.”
Leo DiCaprio and Claire Danes
Claire Danes was not intimidated by her 22-year-old heartthrob love interest, even though she was just 16. In fact, she considered him irritating and immature while filming Romeo + Juliet.
She found his incessant pranks annoying and they rarely spoke once cameras stopped. Unable to impress the girl, DiCaprio decided she was uptight and annoying.
Katherine Heigl and Judd Apatow
Who knew that calling a movie named Knocked Up “a little bit sexist” would explode in someone’s face? That it would cause another to “expect an apology” and go so far as to say he can “respect the fact that perhaps she realizes that it has hurt her career.”
Well, that’s what happened. To be fair, her full statement includes, “It paints women as these shrews, who are humorless and uptight, while the men are seen as loveable, goofy, fun-loving guys.”
LL Cool J and Jamie Foxx
Their famous tiff happened during the filming of "Any Given Sunday" in 1999. A little too much method acting on the football field led to a fistfight.
LL tells his side, “I’ma keep it 100 with you. You want me to keep it 100—I’m gonna keep it 100 He punched me in the face.” But the tussle ended with Jamie Foxx completely knocked out.
