Megan Fox's public dissing of Michael Bay, which later led to her getting fired from 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon,' is hardly the first time an actor and director have clashed on- or off-set. When big budgets and big egos are at stake, major blow-ups are almost inevitable.

While some of these famous players go head-to-head, the results are often just as explosive as any blockbuster, but very few of these run-ins actually do permanent damage to either star or filmmaker.

For example, David O. Russell was involved in two infamous incidents, then bounced back with 'The Fighter.' But how weird is it that on a film called 'The Fighter,' starring another notorious tantrum-thrower (Christian Bale), the results were Oscar nominations all around and no blow-ups at all?
