Being an actor involves having an ego. How else can someone endure rejections before landing a breakthrough part? Some elite Hollywood actors, however, let their egos get the best of them. We’ve gathered this list of the most difficult actors to work with. One Oscar-winning actor is notorious for annoying film crews (page 10).
1. Charlie Sheen
Sheen’s hard partying made him increasingly difficult to work with on the set of Two and a Half Men, reports People Magazine. In a letter to Sheen’s lawyer, Warner Bros.’ counsel described the troubled actor as having “a series of well-chronicled and increasingly erratic outbursts.” The studio also noted that Sheen lost weight, missed rehearsals, and directed “inflammatory comments” at Chuck Lorre, the co-creator of Two and a Half Men.
Although the studio claimed it gave Sheen multiple chances to clean himself up in rehab, the actor failed to continue those efforts. So they fired Sheen and replaced him with Ashton Kutcher for the show’s final four seasons. Sheen later told Matt Lauer that he “regret[s] ruining Two and a Half Men.”
