Hollywood Feuds: Actors vs. Directors

14 of 20

Tippi Hedren vs. Alfred Hitchcock

Nothing causes an on-set feud faster than unrequited love. Alfred Hithcock plucked Tippi Hedren out of obscurity and made her a star in "The Birds," but his obsession with her caused the eventual demise of her Hollywood career. Hendren told The Times that Hitchcock threatened to ruin her career after she rejected his affections. “And he did,” Hedren said. “He kept me under contract – $600 a week. I didn’t make any movies. I was, as you’d say back then, 'hot' and later found out how many directors and producers wanted me. It was very frustrating." - Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
