Yesterday, we brought you confirmation that Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer pretty much couldn't STAND each other while on the set of Magic Mike. 

But it seems hese two are not the first and most definitely not the last on co-stars to fall out behind the scenes. 

We usually hear about celebrities falling in love on the set of movies, but it seems that it is just as common for celebrity co-stars to fall out.

1.  Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in The Notebook 

The Notebook is almost 10 years old (we know, we feel old too!) but it was only last year that the film's director actually revealed that the two on screen lovers just did not get on in real life. 

Yep, the pair may have gone on to date for nearly four years after the film, but while on set Ryan wanted Rachel to be fired! 

Apparently throughout the filming process, Ryan complained about Rachel and their lack of chemistry. We wonder what changed his mind? 

2. Claire Danes and Leonardo Dicaprio in Romeo + Juliet 

Despite their perfect performances on screen, insiders from the movie reported that Claire Danes got very frustrated with the young Leonardo throughout filming. 

She found him so immature that she would do her best to avoid him when not doing a scene together. However, in hindsight Claire noted that the friction may have been caused by more than just Leo's boisterous personality. 

"There was definitely a spark, but I don’t think either of us knew how to handle it. So, we sometimes sort of ignored each other. It was too big for us to really accept." So that chemistry was REAL. 

3. Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrell in Sex and the City 

Despite playing the ultimate in best friends on screen, this pair were far from it in real life. Apparently these two did not get on from day one of filming the popular Sex and the City franchise. 

Though they decided to be civil towards one another, these two were defo not out getting cosmos after a long day at the office. 

4. Lea Michele and Naya Rivera in Glee 

There is not room for TWO divas on one show as this feud demonstrates. Back in April 2014, it was reported that these two actresses simply did not get on while filming Glee. 

Apparently Naya was sick of Lea being a total diva and the young actress is planning to spill all the beans in an upcoming book. We wait with bated breath.


5. Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing 

Patrick's wife let us in on all the goss in his posthumous biography and the actor revealed that there was a lot of tension between these two stars while on the set of Dirty Dancing. 

It seems he got more than a little impatient with her. 

"She seemed particularly emotional, sometimes bursting into tears if someone criticised her. Other times, she slipped into silly moods, forcing us to do scenes over and over again when she’d start laughing.  I didn’t have a whole lot of patience for doing multiple retakes."

6. Blake Lively and Leighton Meester in Gossip Girl 

These two started out as bosom buddies just like their on screen characters. But also like Serena and Blair, Blake and Leighton were not immune to the odd off screen altercation. 

It has been reported that these two cut friendship ties for good when Blake failed to reach out and congratulate Leighton on her engagement to Adam Brody. 

We assume she didn't get a wedding invite so… 


Jennifer Grey is experiencing some serious eighties nostalgia, as are all Dirty Dancing fans, as she promotes her new series Red Oaks.

Set in the 1980s, her new series for Amazon's streaming service is quite reminiscent of the legendary film and that dance scene.

Almost 30 years since the dramatic lift first grabbed viewers’ attention and went down in cinematic history, the 55-year old actress is reflecting on the dance scene.

"I only did it on the day I shot it,” the actress told The Guardian.

"Never rehearsed it, never done it since. I don't know how all these people who re-enact it have the guts to throw themselves into the arms of anyone other than Patrick Swayze. It's insane!"

Having the time of our live does not require months of gruelling rehearsals? Apparently not.

So, does that mean Jennifer would be tempted to recreate the moment again, seeing as it didn’t take much preparation the first time?

Nope, "it’s a non-starter," she added.

"It happened, enjoy it, watch it over and over again but never ask me to do it again because I’m too f*cking old … I have a family and I want to live longer."

Fair enough, Jennifer. Although that probably has something to do with a doctor telling her that her spine was “literally falling off.”

When Jennifer appeared on Dancing With The Stars, she risked “complete paralysis” from just one wrong turn said Dr  Robert Bray, a spinal specialist.

 We’ll just be over here watching the video and wondering how something looks this flawless when done on a whim.


As a former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, his wedding guests must have expected big things when Mark Wright took the the dancefloor with his new wife Michelle Keegan.

The pair married in an opulent ceremony on Sunday – and apparently they wowed their friends and family with an expertly-executed Dirty Dancing routine.

The Mirror reports that the 28-year-old groom happily took on the role of Johnny Castle, made famous by Patrick Swayze, while Michelle, 27, was perfect as Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman.

To facility her energetic moves, the bride sensibly changed into a shorter version of her ivory lace wedding dress – complete with Dirty Dancing-appropriate ruffles on the skirt. She also reportedly carried white pom-poms and wore Sophia Webster shoes.

The pair’s official first frolic was to Whitney Houstin’s I Have Nothing – an emotional-charged song that prompted Mark to burst into tears, though Michelle remained composed.  

And while the newlyweds were in bed at a respectable 12.30pm, according to The Sun, their guests partied into the early hours of yesterday morning – with the venue having to turn off the power in a bid to get them to clear off and go home.

An insider told the paper: “They were having the time of their lives. They wouldn’t leave and had drunk a lot.

“In the end, staff just pulled the plug and they had to move on.”

If Twitter is an indicator, there were certainly a few sore heads the next morning: actress Brook Vincent said hers was "banging" but that she had "amazing memories".

Meanwhile, Nicola McLean said there had never been "a more stunning bride".



Is Dirty Dancing one of your all-time favourite films? Do you delight in its romantic storyline and wish that you could find your very own Patrick Swayze to dance the night away with?

Well, this clip from Dirty Dancing without the music will put an end to those fantasies! Dancing without music, it turns out, is just plain dirty. And creepy. And should never, ever, be done!

We will NEVER set foot in a silent disco again!
