10 Famous Actor Pairings You Didn't Realise Hated One Another In Real Life
5. Marlon Brando & Frank Sinatra - Guys and Dolls
It seems that singer and actor extraordinaire Frank Sinatra needs things to be my way or hes not quite as much of a gentleman as one might think. On the set of 1955s musical Guys and Dolls, Sinatra and co-star Marlon Brando were constantly at odds, with Sinatra criticising Brandos performance and musical ability (which Brando himself admitted was reminiscent of a hormonal yak) at every turn. When Brando approached Sinatra to work on their musical numbers together, a disdainful Sinatra spurned both him and that Method crap. Sinatra thought that he should have been cast as Sky Masterson, Brandos romantic lead role; adding insult to injury was the fact that Sinatra was allegedly passed over in favour of Brando for 1954s On the Waterfront, for which Brando won an Oscar. But Brando eventually got his comeuppance while filming the scene where their two characters meet in a restaurant booth with Sinatras character eating a slice of cheesecake. The story goes, Brando intentionally flubbed his lines for fun for eight takes just to watch Sinatra eat eight slices of cheesecake to the point where he was both very angry and more than a little sick. The next day of shooting, Brando said the lines perfectly. Revenge, it appears, is a dish best served nauseatingly sweet and New-York-style.
