Co-Stars who Never Met: Shocking Revelations from 14 Actor Duos

Los Angeles, CA: Despite working on the same movie or being cast in the same project, there are some actor duos who never actually crossed paths in real life. These actors may have shared scenes on screen, but due to various circumstances, they never had the opportunity to meet each other.

For instance, in the movie “Love Again,” actor Sam Heughan had several scenes with Celine Dion. However, the two never actually met during filming as a result of travel restrictions and pandemic-related limitations. Instead, their scenes were filmed using a green screen.

Another example is John Krasinski and Elizabeth Olsen, who co-starred in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” Despite having a fight scene together, Olsen revealed during a lie detector test that she had never met Krasinski.

Will Smith and Jared Leto also fall into this category. While they were both in “Suicide Squad,” Leto’s commitment to staying in character meant that Smith never had the chance to interact with him. Smith mentioned in an interview that he had never actually met Leto.

Even actors from the same franchise can sometimes miss the opportunity to meet. Tom Holland, who played Spider-Man, never met J.K. Simmons, who reprised his role as J. Jonah Jameson in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” Despite being in the same movie, Holland never had the chance to meet Simmons.

Sometimes, the lack of interaction goes beyond a single film. Jack Black and Jackie Chan worked together for a decade on the “Kung Fu Panda” movies but didn’t meet in person until years after their collaboration had ended. They joked about never having been within 100 yards of each other.

In some cases, actors may record lines together but never have a chance to meet in person. Billy Eichner, who voiced a character in Disney’s live-action “The Lion King” remake, revealed that he never met BeyoncĂ©, despite both of them lending their voices to the same songs.

These examples show that even in the world of Hollywood, where actors come together to bring stories to life, it’s not uncommon for some to never have the opportunity to meet their co-stars. Whether it’s due to production logistics, being in character, or other circumstances, these actor duos missed out on the chance to meet face-to-face.
