The latest celebrity duo to engage in a public feud is newly trim Jonah Hill and "Glee" crooner Matthew Morrison. The pair, who apparently barely know each other, were both attending an event where quiet attention was required. Hill, who is new to FOX television where Morrison works, claims Zooey Deschanel was speaking with him and he was told by a third party to keep quiet. Morrison chimed in, loudly, to also ask Jonah to keep his voice down. Then, at another party, the "Moneyball" star overheard Matthew using his name in what he perceived as the punch line of a joke.
On a guest appearance on David Letterman, Jonah called out his new nemesis saying, "Matthew Morrison, you better bring your s*** next time, dude. I'd like to see you sing your way out of this one!" Matthew, not to be outdone, responded to Hill with a strong response, "You think I can't sing my way out of this? I can sing my way out of it and I can dance my way out of it," followed by a snazzy little dance.
This celebrity feud seems more funny than real. Both stars appear to be having a good time with it and a real animosity probably does not actually exist. The same might not be able to be said for the following stars that have engaged in public disagreements:
Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie
After starring in their popular television show "The Simple Life," the former besties hit a rough patch. Although an official explanation of the broken friendship was never provided, Paris said "All I am going to say is that Nicole knows what she did and that's all I am ever going to say about it." The pair did eventually end their feud, but their former relationship was never restored. When Nicole married Joel Madden, Hilton was left off the guest list.
Chuck Lorre and Charlie SheenCharlie went on a rampage criticizing Lorre after he stopped the production of "Two and a Half Men" due to Sheen's unpredictable behavior. After many months of "winning" and "tiger blood," Charlie has apparently calmed down and is working to repair his image. It is too late, however, to save his job on the popular comedy series. Lorre hired Ashton Kutcher as the new star and, in a horrific meat-exploding train accident, Charlie's character was killed off the show.
Shia LeBeouf and Frankie Muniz
While LeBeouf has appeared in many popular movies over the past few years, Muniz has been mostly absent from Hollywood. The two, however, used to often be compared to one another in the media with Shia feeling that Frankie looked down on him. Shia couldn't help but throw it in his former rival's face during a 2010 interview. Muniz responded on Twitter, "Dear Shia LeBeouf. It's getting creepy the fact that you can't stop talking about me. It's been 12 years now. I don't know you. Thanks."
Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump
The Miss USA competition brought about the argument between O'Donnell and Trump. Rosie called Donald a "snake-oil salesman" among other insults with Donald calling Rosie a "loser" and commenting on her weight. The two, however, may be leaving Miss USA Tara Conner and other recent trash-talking incidents on Twitter in the past and starting to let their feud simmer down. Rosie recently responded to a blog question and said to have found Donald "likable."
NeNe Leakes and Star Jones
While both appearing on "Celebrity Apprentice," NeNe and Star did not develop a friendship. In fact, their strong dislike for one another became one of the highest sources of entertainment of the season. The women clashed in every possible way and created lots of drama. While NeNe has bashed the former "View" host in interviews, Star has tried to refrain from sharing her opinion about her fellow contestant.
Brooke Shields and Tom Cruise
After struggling with post-partum depression in 2005, Brooke shared her story in the hopes of helping other mothers. Cruise had strong feelings and harsh words about the way in which Shields coped with her issue, which included treatment with the drug Paxil. Tom thought she could have been better treated with vitamins and dissed the actress's career. Cruise ended up giving Shield's a heartfelt apology and she accepted. Neither have changed their stance on post-partum depression treatment.
