Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
Thought these romantic co-stars had amazing chemistry? Get ready to be disappointed because they secretly hated each other. From Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes, to Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, find out which iconic on screen couples actually couldn't stand each other.
'The Notebook' might be one of the most romantic films of all time but according to director, Nicholas Cassavetes leading lady, Rachel McAdams and her co-star, Ryan Gosling resorted to screaming and shouting at each other on set. They must have made up though because after shooting ended the pair dated for three years!
Fans of 'Dirty Dancing' will be disappointed to hear that Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey had fallen out before they'd even started shooting, having argued on the set of their previous film, 'Red Dawn'. Swayze reportedly found Grey very hard to work with, revealing in his autobiography: "We did have a few moments of friction… she seemed particularly emotional, sometimes bursting into tears if someone criticised her."
Proving that 007 can't always charm the ladies, Pierce Brosnan wasn't a fan of his 'Tomorrow Never Dies' co-star, Teri Hatcher. The 61-year-old told Italy's 'Vanity Fair': "She was always keeping me waiting for hours. I must admit I let slip a few words which weren’t very nice." It later came out that the Bond girl had been pregnant and suffering from morning sickness. Opps! Picture: Rex
Debra Winger apparently didn't like anyone on the set of 'An Office And A Gentleman', according to co-star, Louis Gossett Jr. She reportedly hated making the film and likened co-star Richard Gere to “a brick wall” and called director, Taylor Hackford "an animal". Eek!
Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes weren't exactly star-crossed lovers on the set of Baz Luhrmann's 'Romeo + Juliet'. According to rumours, the 'Homeland' actress found her older co-star irritatingly immature and became fed up with him playing pranks on the cast and crew. He in turn thought she was annoyingly reserved and uptight.
Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi may have been a hit but it was nutritiously difficult to make with the love scene between Sean Young and Harrison Ford becoming know as 'the hate scene'. The American actress later said: "When you’re twenty and you're insecure, you hope that your leading man will be like, ‘It’s ok, you’ll be fine’… and Harrison wasn’t particularly generous that way."

Tony Curtis famously compared kissing 'Some Like It Hot' co-star, Marilyn Monroe to "kissing Hitler", saying: "It was awful. She nearly choked me to death by deliberately sticking her tongue down my throat into my windpipe." They'd actually been lovers before making the film but by the time they'd been cast things had gone sour. Picture: Rex
The feud between Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte has lasted longer than most celebrity relationships and started on the set of 'I Love Trouble', where they reportedly had to shoot some scenes separately. Later the 'Pretty Women' star described her co-star as “completely disgusting”, telling the 'New York Times' "he seems to go out of his way to repel people." The 74-year-old actor replied via 'Flavor Wire' saying: “she’s not a nice person, everyone knows that.” Picture: Rex
The well-rehearsed Reese Witherspoon reportedly took issue with her more spontaneous co-star, Vince Vaughn on the set of 'Four Christmases'. The pair's acting styles did not mix, making filming unbearable for all involved. The 45-year-old actor would apparently turn up 5 minutes before filming, which drove the 'Wild' actress insane.

It's rumoured that Sharon Stone bit her co-star's tongue during a kissing scene in 'Sliver' and the pair opening hated each other from the beginning. Director Phil Noyce told his biographer: “I ended up having to shoot many of their close-ups with only one of them in the room at a time, because they didn’t want to look at each other.” Picture: Rex
