She won’t ever take off her sunglasses because she doesn’t want anyone to make eye contact. Jim doesn’t want his coworkers to see it, because he’s such a bigwig. He wants the staff to think that he has the upper hand but it’s obvious she wears the pants.”

During her lifetime, Lucille Ball had a lot of fans but Richard Burton was not one of them. In his diaries, he wrote about Lucille Ball claiming, “She is a monster of staggering charmlessness and monumental lack of humor…She is a tired old woman and lives entirely on that weekly show which she has been successfully doing for 19 years. Nineteen solid years of double-takes and pratfalls and desperate upstaging and cutting out other people’s laughs if she can, nervously watching the ‘ratings’ as she does so…”

Even though his nickname on the show is “McDreamy”, it seems that he was quite the diva on the set. According to some, he was very disrespectful to the cast and the crew, which is actually the reason why he was fired from the show. Shonda Rhimes, the show’s creator, head writer, executive producer, and showrunner, announced that she had adopted a “no a**holes policy.” after working with Dempsey.  It was a good call, as many actors who behaved poorly were fired, but the 15th season of the show is still running today.

That is something no one should ever do.

Other rumors say that during the filming, Seagal didn’t care about the well-being of the stuntmen. He is even known for kicking them between the legs when things don’t go as planned. Weird and rude, right?

Here Is a List of the 40 Meanest Celebrities in the Industry

During an interview, the interviewer jokingly addressed Hill as Seth. Jonah immediately got offended and responded by saying “That’s a great way to start.” It was simply impossible to continue the interview after that.

I’ve never been involved in a situation like that where one component is not in the box at all.” On more than one occasion, Willis refused to sit for promotional photos for the movie poster.
