In the world of film and Hollywood, it’s great to see characters portrayed by actors we can relate to or have seen in movies we love working together.
We’re all fully aware that their on-screen persona will likely be different to what they are like in real life and that the actors may not like each other off-camera or may delve too deep into their role they forget they’re actually acting.
Here are 12 movie stars that took things a little too far on and off set when working on the latest movies.
12) Scarecrow, Tin-Man and Cowardly Lion bullied Julie Garland
Who would have guessed that lovable actors Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, and Jack Haley spent the entire shoot picking on Judy Garland?
The three male leads, who played the Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, and the Tin-Man, refused to be nice to Garland and would frequently shun her, convinced that she was upstaging them all.
It’s rather upsetting knowing that the incredible chemistry that the four actors shared on screen was fake. Funnily enough, Margaret Hamilton, who played the Wicked Witch of the West, was the one left to comfort Garland on-set.
11) Tommy Lee Jones relentlessly berated Jim Carrey
When filming Batman Forever, Tommy Lee Jones played Two-Face, opposite Carrey’s Riddler. They’re both pretty entertaining in the roles, especially in their scenes together, though Jim Carrey later recalled that his time on set with Jones was a rather unpleasant affair.
“I was really looking forward to working with Tommy, but he was a little crusty,” Carrey explained, citing the fact that Dumb and Dumber did better at the box office than Cobb, a middling Tommy Lee Jones film released at the same time.
The actor reportedly told Carrey that he “hated” him and didn’t want to work on the film, and continued to make life on set difficult for the duration.
