Most Difficult Actors to Work With

The Top Ten
1 Marlon Brando Marlon Brando, Jr. was an American actor, film director, and activist. He is credited with bringing a gripping realism to film acting, and is often cited as one of the greatest and most influential actors of all time. He died on July 1, 2004 at the age of 80.

I am shocked at how difficult he is despite being in the best movies of all time.

His arrogance and his voice make me ill...

2 Charlie Sheen Carlos Irwin Estévez, known professionally as Charlie Sheen, is an American actor. Sheen has appeared in films including Platoon, Wall Street, Young Guns, Eight Men Out, Major League, Hot Shots!, and The Three Musketeers.

Poor Charlie...aliens sucked out his brain.

3 Edward Norton Edward Harrison Norton is an American actor, filmmaker and activist. He has been nominated for three Academy Awards for his work in the films Primal Fear, American History X and Birdman.

Yeah, he was so hard to work with that the mcu literally got rid of the actor after one role, and at the time he was the second main face in the mcu.

An ounce of pretention is worth a pound of manure! Who does this guy think he is? I can't STAND actors like this! Hey Ed, you're playing dress up, not curing cancer!

Considering he played an actor who's hard to work with in the movie Birdman, I think he knows he's difficult to work with.

Why do you think Mark Ruffalo is now the Hulk?

4 Gwyneth Paltrow Gwyneth Kate Paltrow is an American actress, model, writer, businesswoman, singer, and author. She has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including an Academy Award, an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award.

What a twit. Keep your pompous arrogant mouth shut for once in your privileged life.

She thinks she's brilliant but most of what spews from her mouth is ignorant drivel.

5 Shannen Doherty

Anger issues, control-freak... If she really never made it big ( she was even kicked out of the " Charmed " series after the third season because of her bad attitude ) it's herself who's to blame.

6 Mike Myers Michael John "Mike" Myers is a Canadian actor, comedian, screenwriter, director, and film producer, who also holds British and American citizenship.
7 Val Kilmer Val Edward Kilmer is an American actor. Originally a stage actor, Kilmer became popular in the mid-1980s after a string of appearances in comedy films, starting with Top Secret!
8 Lindsay Lohan Lindsay Dee Lohan is an American actress. She is also a model, singer, songwriter, director, and producer.

Pretty much an idiot

9 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

I know someone who worked with her and said she was absolutely the worst person to work with. Total diva and rude to the staff. You weren't even allowed to look in her direction when she walked by.

It's not that hard to work with Megan Fox, but working with J. Lo is the hardest thing to do because one time she stole one the producer's wallet! Better hold on to my pockets!

She is a backup dancer gone Actor. The worst Actress in Hollywood. It proves that talent is not a requirement to be a Actress or Singer. She sucks as a mother too!

You can't even look at her when she's on set, we where all asked to look away anytime she enters our area!

10 Sharon Stone Sharon Vonne Stone is an American actress, producer and former fashion model. She is the recipient of a Primetime Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award, as well as having received nominations for an Academy Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Who publicly puts down the people writing a show that made you a star! Really!

12 Christian Bale Christian Charles Philip Bale (born 30 January 1974) is an English actor. He has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.

Bale is an arrogant, talentless clown. If I were the grip that he yelled at, I would have called his punk-ass out and physically destroyed him. In fact, I would have taken great satisfaction in making him apologize. His movies suck, his attitude sucks, and he sucks. Two words: Terminator Salvation! He couldn't even act a part that was specifically created for him. In summary: huge ego-small acting ability!

I can't get over what he did on the set of Terminator: Salvation. TNZ got a tape showing in audio how hard he was to work with. I can't see him the same way again.

he always must have his way even though the director is the one who makes the choices and his attitude SUCKS! Listen to what he said to a staff member in the film of Terminator Salvation on Youtube.

I don't know something tells me that he's really hard to work with. He has a snobby attiude as well.

13 Megan Fox Megan Denise Fox is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the Hope & Faith television sitcom.

Don't invite her to your party. Her ego won't fit through your front door.

May be difficult to work with but at least she is pretty (Meryl Streep ew! Snap).

14 Casey Affleck Caleb Casey McGuire Affleck-Boldt is an American actor and director. He began his career as a child actor, appearing in the PBS television film Lemon Sky and the miniseries The Kennedys of Massachusetts.
15 Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie is an American actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian. She has received an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. She has also been cited as Hollywood's highest-paid actress. ...read more.

Has been actress. Stick to adopting kids, everyone is tired of you.

16 Bruce Willis Walter Bruce Willis, known professionally as Bruce Willis, is an American actor, producer, and singer.
17 Judy Davis

I met her and her husband Colin Friels in the Sydney city David Jones store. To the astonishment of my girlfriend and I, we witnessed how insulted and scolded a sales assistant for no good reason. Colin commented that this behaviour was not abnormal and could often be worse. I consequently have taken the decision to never purchase any film she acts in, even the David Lean classic "A Passage to India", due to her discussing fowl-mouthed conduct.

Just sued someone publication for $140,000 because they called her heartless and other things she didn't like. She's a foot faced moon cricket anyway. Who cares what she thinks.

I don't see how anyone could ever watch her again, after the way she treated River Phoenix, I can't stand the woman... She's not beautiful at heart, if you see her now,she is old and ugly also. nothing going for her.

Worst reputation of all Aussie actors. Only those who hire her are those who don't know what she's like.

18 Sean Young Mary Sean Young (born November 20, 1959) is an American actress. Her film appearances include Stripes, Blade Runner, Dune, No Way Out, Wall Street and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective among many others.

She'll be the least-known actress on the list, but she can only thank herself for that. After starring in "No Way Out" and "Stripes", apparently Young thought she was the second coming of Bette Davis. She walked off sets, threw tantrums, yelled at co-stars, grips, assistants, make-up artists, extras, (you get the picture). Apparently she pissed off the wrong person and was never heard from again.

She had an affair with james woods, and after it ended she would NOT LET GO, stalked him, THAT'S the wrong person she pissed off.

She dressed up as Catwoman and forced Tim Burton to give her the part. She still didn't get it.

19 Steven Segal

He's unfunny un talented, a bully (example: he likes to kick stuntmen in their privates if they do a stunt he can't do). He's a lire, a sexiest, he has a habit of founding and harrasing the females on the sets. If you prove to be be better or to laugh at him you get bullied or fired (a stunt man (who was at least twice Seagals age) choked him out causing him to crap his pants after Seagal challenged him, he fired the entire crew that saw this, and had a gag order placed on the crew).

20 Meryl Streep Mary Louise "Meryl" Streep is an American actress. Cited in the media as the "best actress of her generation", Streep is particularly known for her versatility in her roles, transformation into the characters she plays, and her accent adaptation.

Dustin Hoffman said in an interview about the movie " Kramer VS Kramer " that Meryl Streep was a real pain in the ass to work with. She wants Always to change the script, telling orders to actors, no-actors and even the director. Many say that she's some kind of snob who thinks that a movie is " HER " movie just because she's in it.

Huge ego. No humility. Acts as if she cured cancer, when all she's done is play pretend for tons of $

21 Dustin Hoffman Dustin Lee Hoffman is an American actor and director with a career in film, television, and theatre since 1960. He has been known for his versatile portrayals of antiheroes and vulnerable characters.

Would not spend my last dime to see him... But he is OK. One of the better actors from the 70's.

22 Rip Torn
23 Lea Michele Lea Michele Sarfati is an American actress, singer and author. She began her career as a child actress on Broadway, appearing in productions of Les Misérables, Ragtime, Fiddler on the Roof, and Spring Awakening.

He first gained exposure on Saturday Night Live, for which he earned his first Emmy Award and later went on to star in comedy films, including Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Scrooged, What ...read more.
