However, this is often not the case. There are many examples of actors refusing to work together and things going wrong. The magic of cinema is in finding a way through all of these circumstances.
To give you an idea of what can go wrong during production, Brightside gathered these examples of actors who have crossed the line.

Despite the advices, Zendaya and Tom opened up about their relationship in November 2021, being officially together.
2. So did Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
The producer that advised Tom and Zendaya did the same thing with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, also during the production of one of the Spider-Man movies.
