Making a movie can be a very stressful undertaking. Sometimes people lose their temper and other times some actors are just plain nasty to play with. If you ever make it to Hollywood, you may want to think twice before working with this list of artists.
This troubled actor reportedly walked off the set of his first job. It was a commercial for hamburgers when he was only 12 years old. Kilmer famously came head to head with director Joel Schumacher, who told him that his poor treatment of the crew was unacceptable.
Long ago, Val Kilmer was a promising actor in the Hollywood arena. And yet, every director he has ever worked with has something very nasty to say about him, which has likely led to the state of his career being barely a career nowadays.
He has his friends, fans, and defenders, of course – those who still believe he was once truly and honestly dedicated to his acting. They assume his bad temper has manifested,and later escalated, only as a result of his frustrations with many incompetent filmmakers.
He also might be slightly insane, given his flamboyant spirit and going a bit wild and loud in interviews, which certainly hasn’t helped his image.
Furthermore, there are all those ex-wives and ex-lovers who have gone on the record to let everybody know how crazy this guy can be.
His most famous outburst happened during the making of Batman Forever, where Kilmer allegedly had a very serious fight with Joel Schumacher. Whatever the cause for this meltdown was, judging by the movie, we may say we are on Kilmer’s side here.
“There’s a dark side to Val that I don’t feel comfortable talking about,” said screenwriter Kevin Jarre.
Did you know that he turned down Patrick Swayze’s role in Dirty Dancing (1987) because he didn’t want to be seen as a “hunk”?
