Orson Welles and Peter Sellers in "Casino Royale." For whatever reason, they just hated each other, and would not work in the presence of each other. So, when they had to shoot scenes of them together, they would shoot Orson with a stand-in for Peter, then Orson would walk off the set, Peter would come on, and they shoot Peter with a stand-in for Orson.

Marilyn Monroe. Because she kept flubbing her lines, during the shooting of a film.

Burt Ward. "Batman." It got so bad, that they started shooting around him, because everybody hated working with him so. Of course, he was difficult, because this was his first big role, and he was insecure.

I am sure there are, were, and will be other difficult actors to work with.

I've heard stories from the '80s of how Jane Seymour was a real b***h, but also how she's become a much nicer person to work with in recent years.

I remember hearing that Demi Moore was a b***h on the set of some movie and she had all these crazy demands. One of her demands was that they had to build a special filter in the walls of her trailer so the water that came out of the shower for her was Evain.

I just finished working with Demi Moore and she was wonderful to work with.  I too heard the stories from others who worked with her and i was a bit affraid.  But she was great.  Never a cross word...very professional...Enthusiastic about the project.
I'd work with her anytime.

Speaking of the original batman series, I heard that Otto Preminger, who played the second Mr' Freeze, was such an ahole that they got eli wallach to do freeze's third appearance.

 Also, Tellulah bankhead purportedly ragged on adam west virtually every second she was on the set.

I heard an interview on Howard Stern with Robert Duvall where they talked about Bill Murry being impossible to work with. I remember Chevy Chase saying something to the same effect.

Wow.. Joan Crawford not mentioned yet?
Strangely, the one movie I know of where she didn't play a b*tch, MILDRED PIERCE, was my favorite movie of hers!
Her problems to begin with are legendary, but her clashes with Bette Davis are really impressive.

Photobucket sucks.  Pass it on.

I've heard that Lucy Liu and Bill Murray HATE one another after shooting Charlie's angels

I'd sotra be interested in knowing why.  Bill Murray strikes me as the type that rarely seems serious even when he's trying to do something seriously, which I think could infuriate somebody who was actually trying to take things seriously.

From what I've heard and read, Bill Murray is a nice guy for the most part but if you p**s him off, he STAYS p**sed.

Yul Brenner could be difficult; he and Steve McQueen hated each other while making Magnificent Seven because they both thought they were the primary star.  Barbara Bouchet, his costar in the movie Death Rage, was so disgusted by the way he treated the crew that she sent him a big bouquet of flowers that he was allergic to.  Twirling

I've heard that Peter Sellers once refused to do a scene because someone of the crew had the wrong colour of jumper.

I would think Christian Bale if you ever heard his tirade on the set of Terminator: Salvation when he went off severely on the Director of Photography when he was trying to check the lighting while Mr. Bale was trying to get into character for a shot. Then, I read later that the two get along just fine and neither has bad feelings about the incident.

I knew an old guy who used to work for Patty Duke.  He said she was intollerable.

Christopher Lee seems like this, like when he refused to say any lines in Dracula Prince of darkness.
