The relationships we see on screen sometimes look too good to be true in real life. Various shows have set friendship and relationship goals for generations altogether but you might be surprised to know that some of these actors who deliver amazing chemistry on screen can’t really stand each other in real life. As heartbreaking as it may sound, their witty repartee on screen is just too believable for us to think that they might hate each other in real life.
Here are 10 of those on-screen best friends who can’t really stand each other in real life:
1. Sarah Jessica Parker & Kim Cattrall – Sex and the City
They were the best of friends on the show, Sex and the City, but weren’t too pally with each other off-screen. Though the two have never confirmed their feud, it’s said that at one point, they’d talk to each other only during their scenes.
2. Chad Michael Murray & Sophia Bush – One Tree Hill
Their characters once dated on the show but even after their break up, they were really close friends on screen. But in real life, Chad & Sophia broke up 5 months after they got married. Bush later stated that they shouldn’t have dated in the first place.
3. Marcia Cross & Teri Hatcher – Desperate Housewives
The four leading characters were shown to be best friends on the show but that act was just for the screen. In real life, rumour has it that Teri Hatcher (Susan) wasn’t close to any of them. Marcia Cross (Bree) even threatened to walk out of a magazine shoot if Hatcher was given the center spot in the picture.
4. David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson – The X-Files

6. Blake Lively & Leighton Meester – Gossip Girl
Serena van der Woodsen & Blair Waldorf were best friends on the show and while there were phases where they sabotaged each others’ lives, they still loved each other dearly.

While filming the last two seasons of the show, the two had stopped hanging out and were quite cold towards one another.
7. Lauren Graham & Scott Patterson – Gilmore Girls
The two star crossed lovers from Stars Hollow were loved on the show. Initially, Scott was just cast for a few episodes, but his chemistry with Lauren’s character was so perfect that he was retained.
