15 TV Couples That Actually Despise Each Other

The good actors are con artists. They’ve tricked us into believing in their chemistry. The very best of these had us buying into the on-screen love story when, behind-the-scenes, the actors hated each other. These off-screen feuds make up just over half our list. The other half are the bad actors or, at least, the bad storylines. These on-screen couples are part of a love story that no one buys into. We haven’t for one second believed that there could be real feelings there. In fact, we’re convinced that these couples hate each other, as the title of this list suggests. They could never work in real life. So, let’s take a closer look at these two groups. Here are 15 TV Couples That Actually Despise Each Other.

 

#1. Ryan and Marissa – The OC

Early on, Ryan and Marissa’s story was arguably the most interesting in The O.C. Ryan was the new kid on the block from the wrong side of the tracks and Marissa was the rebellious rich kid. It was a match made in TV trope heaven. The problems all started once they got together though. In an effort to keep things unstable and interesting for viewers, the writers turned the couple into something laughably dysfunctional.

Marissa was always leaving Ryan for someone badder and crazier and Ryan was always beating these guys up. Then they would get back together and pretend they were star-crossed lovers from the beginning. After a while, these two became so predictable that even the fun we found in their dysfunctionality was stripped away.

 

#2. Mulder and Scully – The X-Files

The sexual relationship between Mulder and Scully always took a backseat in The X-Files. It’s part of what made the show so refreshing and fun to watch at times. Even still, the chemistry between the two actors, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, was undeniable, regardless of whether their relationship was platonic or not. Yet, while these two stars looked so comfortable with each other on-screen, it wasn’t always as pleasant when the cameras were off.

It wasn’t always bad either, but Duchovny tells that there were long periods during filming that the two hated each other, saying, “Familiarity breeds contempt… We used to argue about nothing. We couldn’t stand the sight of each other.” Damn. If you’re like us, you probably wish you didn’t read that. We want to believe.

 

#3. Brooke and Lucas – One Tree Hill

For a long stretch in One Tee Hill, Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) and Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) were involved in a turbulent love affair. The on-screen story soon bled into reality as the actors got involved off-screen, first dating, then getting engaged and then marrying. Sadly, the relationship didn’t last long, as rumor has it that Chad cheated on Bush with Paris Hilton while they were filming House of Wax together. Bush must have got wind of the infidelity and filed for divorce. During all this, the two stars had to still pretend to be into each other on screen.

Thankfully for them, the One Tree Hill writers found a way to split them up to lighten the awkwardness a touch. When asked about their relationship, Bush said, “my mother once said to me that if you don’t have anything nice to say, not to say anything at all.”

 

#4. Lorelai and Luke – Gilmore Girls

Most fans of Gilmore Girls wanted Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Luke (Scott Patterson) to be the ones who were together in the end, but Graham never wanted it this way. Even though neither of the two stars behind this on-screen couple ever explicitly stated that they didn’t get along, people have assumed that Graham had an issue with Patterson because of her comments in a couple of interviews. Basically, she said that they were never intimates and that she wanted her character to end up with Christopher.

From this, plus the fact that Patterson has been accused of being a troubling co-star in the past, and the eye-rolling that Graham has given when she was told Patterson had a crush on her during the early seasons, people have drawn the conclusion that Patterson and Graham don’t get along. We buy it.
