TV Couples Who Disliked Each Other In Real Life
Based on their TV performances, we would've never guessed that these couples actually disliked each other in real life! Are you as surprised as we are?
It's normal that actors sometimes have creative differences. That's good, that's healthy. However, it's also pretty difficult when you have to play a couple on screen. Would you have guessed that the following TV couples actually disliked each other in real life?
Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson aren't as close when the cameras aren't rolling as their characters in Gilmore Girls. In the incredibly popular show, they play Lorelai and Luke, a couple with many ups and downs but in the end, they finally get married. According to screenrant.com, Patterson replied to the question, whether he and Graham are friends in real life with a "'no' that was a little too loud and long." We're a bit saddened about this revelation, we must admit!
That '70s Show
Had you told young Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher that they would get married one day, they would've probably laughed right into your face. Back when they were part of the cast of "That '70s Show", they avoided each other when the cameras weren't rolling.
Which couple comes next?
The Big Bang Theory
The "The Big Bang Theory" couple "Penny" and "Leonard" started dating irl a few years back. However, the relationship didn't last long. Why? Kaley Cuoco allegedly behaved more and more like a diva, which apparently didn't only upset Johnny Galecki on set.
You have to be strong for this one: Apparently, David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston aren't close in real life! Even though they played the couple on "Friends" (were they on a break or not?), they don't seem to be that interested in each other's lives behind the scenes. Back in 2010, Aniston confessed that she didn't even know who Schwimmer was engaged to. She also didn't invite him to her wedding. For us, this won't take their on-screen spark away, though!
According to an insider, Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic completely ignored each other on the set of "Castle". The only times they spoke to each other were during scenes. Any attempts to find the slightest sign of a friendship between the two will be in vain.
What about the next couple?
Sex and the City
Believe it or not, but Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker are only best friends on screen! They apparently couldn't stand each other in real life when SJP received a higher salary than Cattrall did. However, it seems that the tabloids exaggerated the extend to which the two didn't get along. In an interview with Howard Stern, SJP said: "Was every day perfect? No, but this is a family of people who needed each other. This sort of narrative, this ongoing catfight…it used to really confound me and really upset me." However, in 2017, Cattral complained that Sarah Jessica Parker "could've been nicer. I don't know what her issue is."
Fans of "The X-Files" have to comfort each other now: Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny were anything but good friends behind the scenes. They were fighting so much that they couldn't be in the same room on set as long as they weren't doing scenes.
For six whole seasons, Blake Lively und Leighton Meester made us believe that they're in fact best friends, despite several ups and downs. However, behind the scenes of "Gossip Girl" the two apparently despised each other - the situation escalated when Leighton didn't congratulate Lively on her engagement!
The show itself was full of intrigues, but in the end, the "Desperate Housewives" stuck together. Nicollette Sheridan supposedly had quarrels with everyone on set which is why the producers decided to part ways with her.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Will Smith and Janet Hubert, who played his aunt on the show, didn't like each other at all. She once called Smith an egomaniac and said she would never want to work with him again, unless he apologized for his behavior.
Mischa Barton and Ben McKenzie were not fond of each other in real life, which is apparently due to Barton's escapades on set. While they were the couple on the show for a long time, Barton's "conflicts" with the law were a point of contention on set.
Further, Barton supposedly put on airs which regularly rocked the boat.
One Tree Hill
Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush were very close at the beginning of the show - they soon started dating and even decided to get married after five months! A year later, Sophia Bush asked for the annulment of their marriage. When the court declined her request, both filed for divorce. After that, neither of them was too crazy about working together any longer - especially as a couple.
The Vampire Diaries
Elena and Damon were the perfect couple in "The Vampire Diaries". They also dated in real life for three years! However, after the real-life couple broke up, Ian Somerhalder started dating again. When he had a new girlfriend, working with him became increasingly difficult for Nina Dobrev. 2015 marked the end of Dobrev's time on the series, however, she did return for the final season in 2017. At least Elena and Damon got their happy ending! By now, the ex-couple is supposedly on better terms again.
