But sometimes when they are under pressure or tension, they just lose their temper. There are so many incidents popping up of celebrities being filmed taking their anger out on innocent by-standers. Celebrities like Rosie O’Donnell, Christian Bale and Nicki Minaj have all been caught on camera spitting up words of hatred.
Let us see those stars who lost their tempers on set.

She appeared in 1985’s “A View to a Kill”, which marked star Roger Moore’s seventh and final James Bond movie. For the franchise’s 25th film, to be released 25 years after “A View to a Kill”, Jones was brought in to reprise the role of criminal henchwoman May Day in the 2020’s “No Time to Die”. Reportedly, the producers had pulled out all the stops to entice Jones to return, even offering her a luxury residence near the studio. “Grace’s 007 homecoming was meant to be a real crowd-pleasing moment. Bosses were really excited about landing her”, a source stated, adding, “Of course, she comes with a reputation, so they organized premium accommodation and rolled out the red carpet on set to make her feel welcome”. But, Jones received a shock when she arrived on set and found that her role in the movie was just a small cameo. Expecting to play a larger role in the movie, the source said that Jones took her brief cameo as a slight, and quickly stormed off before a single frame of the movie was shot.
