It’s an unfortunate product of Hollywood to have these kinds of actors, but who are the absolute worst? Here are 25 Most Difficult Actors To Work With.

Jennifer Aniston for years has been known as a diva who isn’t approachable and likes to be alone. On one set, she had her trailer a mile away from the set. She would go eat lunch there every day, indicating she didn’t want to be with the other cast and crew.


Lea Michele

During her six-episode guest appearance on Glee, Kate Hudson didn’t mince words about Lea Michele, calling her a diva and a “nightmare to work with.” Michele supposedly snapped her fingers and snapped, “Let’s go! I have plans!” during a technical delay.

Though a famous rapper, calling Kanye West an actor might be a stretch. It didn’t take much for his short stint on the set of Anchorman 2 to make him a reputation of being hard to work with. During his time on the set, he played his own music really loudly and completely annoyed the cast and crew. Even when he finished his parts and was asked to leave, he refused, sticking around anyway and getting into fights with people.
