There are plenty of nice, good-hearted actors out there, and then there are some mean, difficult, downright rude ones as well. This video will focus on the latter type, and some of the names on this list may surprise you. From a Christmas vacationer to a versatile, ever-changing, morphable method actor or two, these actors are some of the most challenging to work alongside. Sit back, get comfy, and get ready for our list of Actors No One Wants to Work With!

4. Dustin Hoffman
Much like Edward Norton, Dustin Hoffman is reportedly a perfectionist and insists on doing things the way he sees them being done. The actor shot up to fame way back in 1967 with The Graduate, but that was nowhere near his first acting gig. Hoffman had been a stage actor for some time before the role came along and even tried to suppress his own fame following the critically acclaimed movie. He turned down multiple roles and directors in order to ensure his star wouldn’t get too big; however, not long after, he got a bunch of parts in successful films, and his star became bright anyway. It’s been said that Hoffman can be difficult and a “chore” to work with as his perfectionism got in the way of rationality. He would apparently demand scenes be reshot if he didn’t like them and there were shouting matches between him and director Sydney Pollack, which is pretty common knowledge. He’s a great actor, but even the greats can lose respect by being difficult to work with.

3. Russell Crowe
Good old Rusty has starred in and made appearances in a slew of great movies since he began acting way back in the 1970s. Think A Beautiful Mind, Gladiator, and Les Miserables. But this New Zealander is pretty notorious for not being the nicest guy in the business, although it hasn’t seemed to affect his career all that much. He once reportedly called producer, Branko Lustig, in the dead of night and said some not so very nice things. He’s belittled interviewers, had outbursts, and supposedly gotten into spats on set; however, there’s no tangible proof to back the claims. He did once treat a new interviewer terribly on the red carpet of a movie premiere—an interviewer who just so happened to be a young Giuliana Rancic. She opened up about it and let it be known that Crowe was her meanest celebrity interview ever.

2. Alec Baldwin
Well, this is no big surprise to anybody. Alec Baldwin has made headlines for what seems like forever for being quite the mean guy. He’s another one of those celebs that seem to survive their bad reputation and continue to get work, though. He’s done many things off set that should have derailed his career, like freaking out on a flight attendant when she asked him to shut off his phone. Or the time he threw insults at a photographer and hit another. Or when he told a reporter he’d like to choke her and hit another reporter with his bike. Maybe the drunken voicemail he left for his young daughter comes to mind? He’s also reported to be pretty bad on set as well. While filming 30 Rock, he would complain about pointless things, yell and berate the cast and crew, and show up late without a care in the world. He’s hard to work with, and many don’t like him, so how has he survived so long?

My friend is a heli pilot flew Kevin Costner to some locations . Said the guy is it complete azz. On the other hand, he said Kurt Russell was the nicest, most down-to-earth actor he has flown around.

The best movie that Steven Seagal made was Executive Decision. And the best part of the movie was when he was sucked out of the tube and his part ended.
