Bette Davis Vs. Joan Crawford
It’s considered one of the most notorious feuds in Hollywood. Joan Crawford and Bette Davis’ lifelong feud ignited after Joan stole Bette’s love from her in the 1940s. The actresses remained enemies until their deaths.
It’s been called ‘Hollywood’s Greatest Love Triangle.’ Elizabeth Taylor and Debbie Reynolds were close friends when Liz had an affair with and then married Debbie’s husband, Eddie Fisher. They rekindled their friendship in 1966 after running into each other on a cruise ship (Eddie was no longer in the picture).
Are you serious? Betty and Bea’s characters may have loved each other in ‘Golden Girls,’ but off screen, the actresses could not stand to be around each other! Bea the introvert was a “professional actress” and considered happy Betty to be a television celebrity.
Although they played mother and daughter on screen, they are real-life rivals. In 1984, Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger were both nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for their roles in ‘Terms Of Endearment.’ At the end of her Oscar acceptance speech, Shirley held up the award and said, “I deserve this!”
Sophia Loren basically invented the side-eye glare, as Jayne Mansfield stole the show (and nearly spilled out of her dress) at Sophia’s first Hollywood bash.
Sisters at war! Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine had a lifetime family feud (apparently, Olivia didn’t like to share their parents’ attention), only fueled by Joan’s victory over Olivia as Best Actress at the 1942 Oscars (both were nominated).
After their work together on ‘The Prince and the Showgirl,’ Laurence thought
Marilyn was just one giant pain. Marilyn was too silly, and well, typical Marilyn, for the serious British actor, resulting in mutual hatred.
What? Who would have thought that such a famous on-screen duo could despise each other so much! Kenny Baker (R2D2) even called Anthony Daniels (C3PO) the rudest man he had ever met, despite starring in all seven ‘Star Wars’ movies together.
