Many people have a coworker they just don’t like. Sometimes, it’s an issue of personalities not clicking or an out-and-out difference in interests and ideologies. But what happens if you’re forced to like that coworker? Like, it’s literally your job to pretend you adore that person? This was the dilemma faced by famous TV couples who hated each other off-screen.
All cherished TV twosomes give their best impression of being happy, lovey-dovey partners. While there are some TV couples who got together in real life, there are plenty of other actor pairings who hated each other in reality. Many people look to television for entertainment and escapism, so it’s easy to forget that the actors you’re watching are actually working their jobs right there – and not every job, work environment, or colleague is going to be a cakewalk.
These professionals, who had to pretend to like someone they despised, had to take their acting abilities to a whole new level. In most cases, they were successful in making fans believe they loved their TV partners. However, off-screen coffee breaks, holiday parties, and downtime were probably pretty brutal – just ask these TV co-stars who hate each other.
