Having a little run-in with your co-workers every now and then is normal. After all, we came from different backgrounds and had to adjust to our new surroundings. However, there are just some diva attitudes that can always rub us the wrong way. This is what happened to some of these celebrities who got into fistfights and catfights on set. 

Here are some of the famous celebrity fights that happened while on the set of some of your favorite films or television shows. 

1. Lucy Liu and Bill Murray - 'Charlies' Angels'

Bill Murray has been into several conflicts on the set, but one of the most controversial was her fight with Lucy Liu while filming 'Charlie's Angels.' Murray played Bosley in the film, and Lucy starred as one of the angels. Murray and director McG has always clashed while filming. There was one time when he reportedly head-butted the director. He and Liu also got into a physical fight after he insulted her acting skills. Liu did not hesitate to punch him. Murray no longer returned for the sequel.

2. Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy- 'Lawless'

While filming the 2012 Western flick 'Lawless,' LaBeouf got into a fistfight with co-star Tom Hardy.

Director Joel confirmed the incident on Reddit, saying: "there was definitely a fight between them. It escalated to the point where they had to both be restrained."

It turns out that Shia knocked Hardy down.

“He knocked me out, sparko. Out cold. He’s a bad, bad boy. He is. He’s quite intimidating as well. He’s a scary dude.” Hardy confirmed via Den of Geek. 

3. Steven Seagal and John Leguizamo- 'Executive Decision'

Steven Seagal is not among the favorite people to have around the set, especially during the 1996's 'Executive Decision.' Seagal's character was surprisingly killed halfway through the movie. Rumors say it has something to do with his toxic set behavior. When John Leguizamo tried to play a little joke, Seagal made it clear he was not in the mood.

"He told everyone, 'I’m in command. What I say is law.' Leguizamo told AV Club.

"So I started, like, laughing. I mean, who the fuck talks like that? Who comes into rehearsal and says that shit? So I started laughing, and he slammed me with an aikido elbow against a brick wall and knocked all the air out of me. I dropped to the ground, and all I could say was, 'Why? Why?'”

4. Sylvester Stallone and Richard Gere-'Lords of Flatbush'

Sylvester Stallone and Richard Gere just can not get along when filming 'Lords of Flatbush' in 1974.

Stallone told Ain't It Cool News that Gere "would strut around in his oversized motorcycle jacket like he was the baddest knight at the round table."

Things even escalated further over hotdogs and chicken during lunch later that day.

Stallone said he was eating a hot dog in a car when Gere came in while eating a greasy chicken. "I said, 'That thing is going to drip all over the place.' He said, 'Don’t worry about it.' I said, 'If it gets on my pants, you’re gonna know about it.' He proceeds to bite into the chicken, and a small, greasy river of mustard lands on my thigh. I elbowed him in the side of the head and basically pushed him out of the car." Gere was replaced in the film by Perry King.

5. Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty on 'Beverly Hills, 90210'

Working together in 'Beverly Hills, 90210' was one of the dark moments between Garth and Doherty's career. Mainly because they hated each other but would still see each other on the set. 

“We were young and so stupid.” She mentioned an incident where, after Doherty pulled up Garth's skirt, "we took it outside.” Garth told Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. 

6. Rip Torn and Norman Mailer- 'Maidstone'

Real-life politician Norman Mailer directed this odd political drama, while Torn starred as his brother. The two quarreled during filming. 

The final scene was supposed to be a fight scene. However, the two decided to improvised. Long before everyone realized it, what was supposed to be acting turned into an actual fight as they started clawing and pounding each other. Mailer even bit Torn's ear. A lot of people may not have heard of the movie, but the fight scene is a pretty popular clip on Youtube.
