Some have even called him “unbearable” to work with. Despite this reputation, Chase has had a successful career in Hollywood and is still considered a comedy icon by many. However, his behavior has caused some to question whether his talent is worth the trouble.
“Chevy Chase is pretty notorious for being insufferable.”
“I love all of the vacation movies too (and the Three Amigos!) I actually think he’s hilarious but there are just too many awful stories about his crappy behavior.”

“I worked on a film set for a movie James Franco was producing, directing, and staring in back in 2012 and he was creepy and off-putting the entire time .”

Katherine Heigl is known for being critical of scripts and storylines. She has spoken out publicly against her own projects, causing tension with directors and other cast members.
