4 Actors who refused to have contact with other actors

You'd be surprised to find out how many actors have asked not to share the set with other fellow actors. Find out who they are and why they didn't want to have contact with their co-stars.

  • Some stars can get picky about their co-stars, but others simply cannot stand them!
  • There are many reasons why actors decide not to share a scene or a film set. Whether it may be for racial motives or due to a bad breakup, here are four stars who gave producers a hard time!

1. How I Met Your Mother stars, Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel were the perfect couple for nine seasons. Everybody wanted a relationship like theirs, but did you know Hannigan refused to kiss Segel? Apparently Segel was a smoker. "I cannot stand cigarette smoke. It's like kissing an ashtray, and he's trying to be polite by having gum or mints, but it doesn't help," she said in 2008 to Digital Spy. Segel asked Hannigan to help him quit, unfortunately for the actress he never quit completely. However, their characters Lily and Marshall will always be an example of partnership.

Lily and Marshall are one of the most loveable on-screen couples ever!

2. In 1993 Denzel Washington turned down a few love scenes with his co-star on The Pelican Brief Julia Roberts. Apparently the actor refused to have any interracial love scenes in loyalty to his African-American fans. Washington said he knows how his fans react to those contents. He also said he turned them down because he said Black women are usually not seen as an object of desire on films. At least not in 1993! Julia was very disappointed.

3. Julia Roberts also a complicated time filming  I Love Trouble in 1994 with her co-star Nick Nolte.  According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, Roberts couldn't stand Nolte's "macho attitude" on set. Nolte would get so annoyed that he would act out his machismo even more. They had to use doubles for most of the scenes. The movie was not a success, no surprise! Roberts said of Nolte "He's going to hate me for saying this, but he seems to go out of his way to repel people." And Nolte responded "she's not a nice person. Everyone knows that."

Nolte's and Roberts' on-screen chemistry was not believable.

4. Game of Thrones characters Cersei Lannister and Ser Bronn of the Blackwater never actually appeared together. Producers had to organize the shooting schedule so the actors wouldn't have to share the set. The reason behind this? They were actually involved romantically in 2002, but did not end on speaking terms. Actress Lena Headey asked if they could orchestrate her schedule, so she would never see actor Jerome Flynn.
