14 Co-stars Who Reportedly Did Not Get Along, Despite Playing Best Friends In Movies And TV Shows

People often can’t stand some colleagues at work. Regardless of their job, getting in trouble with co-workers is sometimes unavoidable when things don't go as planned or ego gets in the way. As a result, some people refuse to keep working in that situation. That sounds OK because they certainly might not give 100% in their performance when cooperating with who they don’t get along.
But when people can’t stay out of trouble, what will they do? In other words, there’re some cases where people can’t leave the job and have to get it done. For example, movie casts who were chosen by directors, normally wouldn’t be changed only by simple “personal issues”. These actors will continue to work with the haters with no choice if they don't want to cause more trouble for the crew or even for themselves. And here is the thing, some actors, who didn’t get on well with each other, played best friends in Movies and TV Shows. How would these actors feel when not only keeping working with the one they hate but also pretending that they are one of the most important people to each other on-screen? That would certainly bring them complicated emotions.
Below are 14 actors who could get along with their co-stars, and have to play best friends on screen. Let’s scroll down and check them out!
