19 Behind-The-Scenes Feuds That Almost Ruined Movies and Shows

Making movies is already hard enough without stars with big egos.
19 Behind-The-Scenes Feuds That Almost Ruined Movies and Shows

Nobody said making movies was easy. Well, maybe Roger Corman said it, it would fit his style. But making movies or TV shows really isn’t. You have to get a bunch of people together, set schedules, get the budget, and you gotta cram some explosions in there, obviously. That’s hard work. But what makes it even harder is when its creative minds, whether in front or behind the camera, butt heads. It can be over creative differences or just good ol’ ego. After all, everyone has their own idea of what the final product should be — or of what their own talent is worth. Add to that a bit of workplace tension, and you got yourself the potential for some legendary feuds.

Following the Cracked tradition, then, we once again turn our attention to behind-the-scenes feuds. And we’re focusing on some truly great ones, the sort of rivalries that make us wanna grab our time machine and be like “guys, guys, please… please hurt each other much more so Cracked’s behind-the-scenes feud articles are even juicier”. But then they’d probably get angry at us, and we’d have to include ourselves in the articles in what would make them a tight, Inception-like bundle of non-Euclidian feuds — and trust us, you don’t want to have to deal with our narcissism, Hitch. What’s that? Why Alfred Hitchcock, you ask? Oh, he knows what he did, he knows. We’d just be more cruel than he was and with some jokes you can’t say in 2022, but then he’d get all sad and never make Frenzy, which would really mess up the space-time continuum. So really, forget we said anything about our time machine, let’s just get back to the Pictofact.
