The most bitter Hollywood feuds
Stephen Baldwin Vs. Kevin Costner
Never go into business with your friends. Or Hollywood movie stars.
Baldwin clan member Stephen is currently up to his eyeballs in litigation papers in a dispute with Kevin Costner. Baldwin is saying that Costner tricked him into selling out shares he owned in a company that make machines that clean up oil spills, a company which went on to make millions. Baldwin wants up to $20 million in damages from Costner.

Zach Galifianakis Vs. January Jones
Not so funny now... Zach Galifianakis and January Jones (Copyright: PA)
Most likely no one was more surprised than the portly, hairy comedian with the long Greek name when he was asked by the blonde bombshell with the month-based name to join her for a drink. When told Jones deemed him fabulously funny, he told this tale: “If I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. I was at a party - I’d never met her - and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so f***ing be nice,’ and I got up and left. And she thinks that’s funny?” It would seem so.
Bette Davis Vs. Joan Crawford
Davis and Crawford's hatred of each other was legendary. The rival stars fought for years over various issues. It's said that Davis rebuffed sexual advances from the bisexual Crawford, and that Crawford purposely stole the love of her life, the actor Franchot Tone, who became her second husband. The bitterness famously spilled onto the screen in 'Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?'. A violent scene where Davis was supposed to feign kicking her repeatedly resulted in a real blow to Crawford's head, causing blood and three stitches. Davis maintained it was an accident, but the animosity between them might suggest otherwise.
Megan Fox Vs. Michael Bay

No one likes being compared to Hitler. But Megan Fox did just that to Michael Bay, who launched her career by casting her in 'Transformers'. She also called him a 'nightmare to work for' and added that he had 'no social skills at all'. Bay hit back, saying: “She says some very ridiculous things because she's 23-years-old and she still has a lot of growing to do.” The tirades went back and forth, but with an underlying sense that there might actually be some fondness between the pair, despite the public barbs.
