Neither Lars von Trier nor Bjork seem like the most stable people, so it isn’t a huge surprise that these two eccentric artists clashed. The two joined forces in 2000 to film "Dancer in the Dark." The shoot quickly turned into a war zone. After weeks of small spats, the tensions between the two finally came to a head.
Trier told GQ, "I met Björk one day and instead of saying hello she spat on the ground." Trier was surprised hours later when the singer asked if she could compose a song in his honor. He added, "It was so absurd, because of the violent hostility that we had been through. It was so completely crazy." Bjork addressed the fight on her blog, saying, "[Trier] needs a female to provide his work soul. And he envies them and hates them for it. So he has to destroy them during the filming. And hide the evidence." - Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
