At the movies, we can make you believe what we want. That in Paris everyone plays Piaf on the accordion, that we hear the sound of ships in space and that two people love each other. The actors play so well that they can give the impression of loving each other on the screen when they cannot feel themselves in real life. It’s fortunately not always the case, but it happens regularly, and between two scenes of kissing (or fucking) we can have the right to arguments worse than those you have with the person who shares your life (yes I’m talking about your cat.)
1. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in “50 Shades of Grey”
The two actors had a lot of sex scenes to shoot together, it could have brought them a little closer, but no. Apparently they couldn’t stand each other during filming, and it even shows a little in the promotional interviews. When we ask them if they hate each other, we feel a huge wind of unease. Today would be much better. I am relieved.
2. Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in “Mad Max: Fury Road”
I’m personally in love with these two people, but they didn’t get along super well on the set of Fury Road. Tom Hardy was a bit difficult to live with according to Charlize Theron, but everyone agrees that it only made the film better, since the two characters they play are not really friends. Like me and my co-workers throwing blunt objects in my face every time I speak.
3. Pierce Brosnan and Teri Hatcher in “Tomorrow Never Dies”
The filming of this James Bond was a little tense: Teri Hatcher was always late, so Pierce Brosnan yelled at her regularly. We can understand. Except that the actress later revealed that she was in early pregnancy and had morning sickness, hence the frequent delays. I used the same excuse for work but no one ever believed me. Weird.
4. Leonardo Dicaprio and Claire Danes in “Romeo + Juliet”
It’s disappointing. The day I heard this news I cried for seven hours straight. Leo and Claire weren’t madly in love like in the movie. It must be said that she was 16 and he was 22 and that he did not stop making very heavy jokes on the set. And since it didn’t make her laugh too much, Dicaprio found Danes cold and arrogant. Big love story.
5. Sharon Stone and William Baldwin in “Sliver”
In the film it is Baldwin who has the upper hand, but in reality it is Sharon Stone who tortured her partner. During a kiss scene, she wanted to hurt him by biting his tongue. He couldn’t speak for a week. He wasn’t very happy.
6. Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray in “Dirty Dancing”
Ah, the beautiful love story. Apparently Jennifer Gray had nothing to beat about love and preferred to ask to redo all the scenes 50 times, which got on Patoche’s nerves a bit. And impossible to blame Baby, otherwise she would start crying in her corner. And we don’t leave Baby in a corner.
7. Harrison Ford and Sean Young in “Blade Runner”
In the film, Sean Young and Harrison Ford have a nice kiss scene, but during this one Ford pushed his partner a little too hard against the wall. She started to cry and resented him a little, especially since they already didn’t support each other too much at the base.
8. Diana Rigg and George Lazenby in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”
At the time of filming this James Bond, Diana Rigg was a renowned theatrical actress while Lazenby was inexperienced and a bit of a jester around the edges. So logically she hated him directly. He banged all the girls on the set except his main partner, and that’s a great proof of his beauty, we applaud.
9. Marilyn Monroe and Tony Curtis in “Some Like It Hot”
Kind of like a mix of Teri Hatcher and Jennifer Grey, Marilyn Monroe was always late and unmanageable on set. We often had to do about sixty takes for a single scene. And that, Tony, really broke his balls.
10. Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte in “The Accomplices”
The classic thing, the two toured together then started to throw small spikes at each other through interposed interviews. Each agreed to say that the other was unpleasant, and that, me, it saddens me because I don’t like when people are not happy.
