Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Vin Diesel aren't the only co-stars who have clashed on set.

The feud between the two action stars was made public a few days ago when Johnson took to Instagram to blast some of his "candy ass" male co-stars on the set of Fast 8 (It's since been revealed he was referring to Diesel).

Here are some others:

RYAN GOSLING AND RACHEL MCADAMS

They ended up dating for four years, but when the two stars first met on the set of The Notebook they did not get on at all.

In 2014 the film's director, Nick Cassavetes, told VH1 about just how strained things were between the pair.

"Maybe I'm not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set," he said.

"And Ryan came to me, and there's 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, 'Nick come here!' He's doing a scene with Rachel and he says, 'Would you take her out of here and bring in another actor to read off camera with me?' I said, 'What?' He says, 'I can't. I can't do it with her. I'm just not getting anything from this'."

The director summoned the two stars to his trailer so they could settle their differences which helped ... a little bit.

"They started screaming and yelling at each other," Cassavetes said.

"I walked out. At that point I was smoking cigarettes. I smoked a cigarette and everybody came out like, 'Alright, let's do this'. And it got better after that, you know?

"They had it out ... I think Ryan respected her for standing up for her character and Rachel was happy to get that out in the open. The rest of the film wasn't smooth sailing, but it was smoother sailing."

JAMIE FOXX AND LL COOL J

The police were called after the two stars came to blows on the set of Any Given Sunday.

Foxx later addressed the punch-up in one of his stand-up comedy shows and said tensions flared when they were filming a scripted argument.

"I'm doing it (the scene) and in my mind I'm thinking, 'This motherfu**er is really, really doing a great acting job or he's mad for real'," Foxx said.

"We get to arguing so much and the next thing you know he hauled off and hit me!"

The punch definitely wasn't in the script.

According to The Smoking Gun, Foxx filed battery charges against LL Cool J that were later dropped.

SHIA LABOEUF AND TOM HARDY

The two stars had a dust up on the set of Lawless with Hardy claiming that LaBeouf knocked him out.

"He just attacked me," the actor said to Den Of Geek.

"[It was] behind the scenes. He knocked me out sparko. Out cold. He's a bad, bad boy. He is. He's quite intimidating as well. He's a scary dude."

The 2012 film's director, John Hillcoat, shot down Hardy's claim in a Reddit AMA that he was "knocked out" by LaBeouf but he did confirm the two fellas brawled.

"There was definitely a fight between them," he said.

"It escalated to the point where they had to both be restrained. But I was very pleased to hear it didn't go that way because I would hate to see the outcome."

JAMES FRANCO AND TYRESE GIBSON

The two clashed because James Franco is a method actor and he refused to throw fake punches during a boxing scene with Tyrese Gibson.

The two clashed because Franco is a method actor and he refused to throw fake punches during a boxing scene with Gibson.

"I respect method actors, but he never snapped out of character," Gibson said to Elle magazine.

"Whenever we'd have to get in the ring for boxing scenes, and even during practice, the dude was full-on hitting me.

"It felt very personal," Gibson said to Playboy, "It was fu**ed-up."

Franco later accepted "full blame" for the issues between the pair and admitted he was "probably a jerk".

"I was not purposely cruel to him, but I was probably so wrapped up in my performance that I was not as friendly as I could have been," Franco said in GQ.

BILL MURRAY AND LUCY LIU

The two stars had a heated clash on the set of Charlie's Angels which later admitted was a big misunderstanding.

"We began rehearsing this scene and I said, 'Lucy, how can you want to say these lines? These are so crazy'," Murray explained in 2003.

"She got furious with me because she thought it was a personal assault, but the reality is she hated these lines as much as I did. But for 15 or 20 minutes there, we went to our separate corners and threw hand-grenades and sky rockets at each other."

The legendary actor addressed the on set spat again in 2009 when he spoke to The Times.

"Look, I will dismiss you completely if you are unprofessional and working with me," he said.

"When our relationship is professional, and you're not getting that done, forget it."

PIERCE BROSNAN AND TERI HATCHER

Pierce Bronson and Teri Hatcher weren't exactly best buds on the set of the 1997 Bond film.

The two actors weren't exactly best buds on the set of the 1997 Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies.

"I got very upset with her," Brosnan later said to the Daily Mirror, "she was always keeping me waiting for hours".

"I must admit I let slip a few words which weren't very nice."

Awkwardly, Brosnan later found out the reason Hatcher always kept him waiting was because she was battling morning sickness.

"It came out one morning that Teri was pregnant and she hadn't been feeling very well," he said to Vanity Fair.

"Still, these things happen."

TOM HARDY AND CHARLIZE THERON

Theron admitted to Esquire that her and Hardy "fu**in' went at it" on several occasions as they spent months six months working side-by-side in the Namibian desert for Mad Max: Fury Road.

The film's director, George Miller, told the Wall Street Journal that tensions were running high between the stars during filming.

"I'm not saying that they were seething right through," he said, "but the trajectory of the character can't help but seep into the work."

Theron was reportedly frustrated that Hardy refused to break character in-between scenes.

"From what I hear, he's not like that on every movie," she said to the Wall Street Journal, "I hear he's had good experiences.

"Maybe the movie is what it is because we struggled so much with each other, and those characters had to struggle so much with each other. If we were chum-chum, maybe the movie would have been 10 times worse."
