3. Mel Gibson & Joe Eszterhas

While working on a script about heroic Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee, Joe Eszterhas claimed Mel Gibson had made outrageous anti-Semitic comments against him. Eszterhas wrote Gibson a 9-page memo describing his insensitive comments, and Gibson fired back with a letter of his own. Gibson asked why he didn’t back out of the script if he felt so offended by the slurs. In the end, Eszterhas refused to work with Gibson, bring their working relationship to an end.
