Feuds and disagreements are a normal part of life, but for some reason, when it’s about celebrities, the beef is a lot juicier! No one cares if you and your sister haven’t spoken to each other in years. On the other hand, if we’re talking about on-set dramas or pop star catfights, the gossip is much more glamorous. Stars, they’re just like us – constantly plotting the downfall of a co-worker who always steals your lunch. Except, instead of lunch, it’s Academy Awards or famous lovers. Hollywood has a rich history of celebrity beef, so buckle up because we’re taking a dive into the craziest celebrity feuds ever.
Joan Crawford vs. Bette Davis
This furious feud is one for the ages. Joan Crawford and Bette Davis’s public feud is so iconic that decades later, Ryan Murphy and FX made an anthology series on them. On top of Crawford stealing Davis’s love interest, she also overshadowed her movie career as the more established actress.
And the cycle continued. Davis played a down-trodded, fading starlet character based on Crawford and written by an ex-friend that also hated her. Then, on the set of “What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?” Davis banged Crawford’d head hard enough to need stitches. As revenge, Crawford filled her pockets with rocks for scenes where Davis needed to drag her body.
