10 Times There Were Fistfights On Movie Sets

Warner Bros.

Shooting either a film or a TV show can often be a stressful affair, with plenty of money at stake and a lot of egos in play. Sometimes, any combination of circumstances can combine to bubble over into an altercation and occasionally can even see punches start to be thrown.

This can stem from creative differences, from personal dislikes, or even a breakdown in what was previously a good relationship, but there have been multiple times when tempers have frayed badly enough that it has gotten physical on set.

Now, it is likely that these sorts of situations have taken place so many more times than we'll ever know, but just it has not become pubic knowledge. After all, it's almost universally in the interest of film studios and the parties involved to keep these sorts of things under wraps - and rumours of tensions on sets have been known to sink projects before they've even made it to completion.

Here are ten times that the fists (allegedly) started to fly - with the caveat that, thankfully, no-one was seriously injured in any of these altercations.
