Aaron Eckhart and Nicole Kidman Weren’t Exactly Besties on the ‘Rabbit Hole’ Set

Aaron Eckhart has done something very rare, you guys. He was honest about the working conditions on his new movie with Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole. You know how co-stars always act like they were instant BFFs with an unbreakable connection for like, the sake of selling their on-screen chemistry? Aaron was like, “Fuck that noise,” and came clean about how tense things got between him and Nicole while they were filming the movie.

Aaron told E! News:

“She was irritated with me and I was irritated with her but that’s the way movie-making is. For one day, are we not allowed? For half a day even?…It’s so surprising to me when people are surprised that movie making is sometimes tense and uncomfortable because inherently it’s going to be. You’re around tens of people or hundreds of people working on things that are imaginary and that come from the soul. You could be dealing with subject matter like prostitution, death, drugs, blah, blah, blah. How could you expect that not to be uncomfortable?”

Would I be devastated to hear that this is how say, Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer felt about one another while filming Friends? Probably. But I respect that Aaron’s keeping it real about the mood on set. It’s not like anyone would truly believe that working with Nicole Kidman and her stiff-ass face is a delight, anyway.

While we’re on the subject of on-screen couples we never really bought, can you think of any other co-stars who probably hated each other’s guts while filming?
