Dune: Part Two star Rebecca Ferguson has revealed that she refused to work with a former co-star after they exploded in anger while shooting a scene, and, as you might expect, speculation is running rampant online.

While being interviewed for the Reign with Josh Smith podcast, Ferguson was asked when she feels she's been "proudest of using her own voice." The Mission: Impossible actress then recalled working with an "absolute idiot" who grew frustrated while filming a scene and took it out on her by "screaming" and saying, "aren't you supposed to be an actor?"

The next day, Ferguson told the individual to "F-off," and made it clear to producers that she would only act in a scene with them if they turned around so she could see the back of their head.

“And then I remember the producers came up and said, ‘You can’t do this to number one. We have to let this person be on set.' And I said, ‘The person can turn around and I can act to the back of the head.’ And I did. I was so scared. I feel it now when I’m saying it.”

Ferguson didn't specify whether this was a male or female co-star, but the internet believes it's narrowed down the possibilities to: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Grant and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The Rock, who worked with Ferguson on Hercules, shared the following response.

Funny coming from him given that most people thought he was the one that she was talking about.
Personally I think it could be anyone on the list of possible divas, no one is as fake as actors.

I love the craft and have many friends in that space but actors tend to be the worst coworkers on set.

"Hate seeing this but love seeing her stand up to bullshit. Rebecca was my guardian angel sent from heaven on our set. I love that woman. I’d like to find out who did this."

Hugh Grant has been kinda of a diva shows on Willi Wonka set he didn't have a good time.
newhire13 - 2/28/2024, 11:16 AM
Hugh Grant for sure. He’s not hidden the fact that he’s a dick.
CaptainMexico - 2/28/2024, 12:04 PM
@newhire13 - Hugh Grant is actually a super nice person. My money is on Jakey boy.
TheVisionary25 - 2/28/2024, 11:16 AM
The Rock immediately be like…

Going by the potential candidates listed above , definitely seems like Hugh Grant is the most likely one…

Dude just seems like kind of an asshole now from some interviews I have seen.

She's got the crazy eyes where it's clear nothing is behind them but madness.
ShellHead - 2/28/2024, 11:20 AM
@Scarilian - man you're a bag of hot takes aren't you
Scarilian - 2/28/2024, 12:15 PM
@ShellHead -
In context:
• She kept fricking up multiple scenes, over and over again with this individual forcing them to do retake after retake, wasting time
• Someone got annoyed with her for this, she proceeds to label them as 'insecure and angry' for claiming she should be an actor and a better caliber than this
• She breaks down and tries to kick up a fuss, telling them to 'frick off' and expected the crew to have her back but they didn't because she's wasted all their time and the other actor has higher billing
• She returns the next day and directly says she won't work with the actor, bringing her personal issues onto set and proceeds to demand to work with a 'tennis ball', that its 'her set', try to send them off the set and that they need to 'turn around' for her to do her scenes
• Then rather than handle this matter professionally, she blasts them in an interview and kicks up a controversy when the film is about to release

This isn't her being a strong person, this is her being incompetent in her role and then having a tantrum when someone expresses frustration once. You don't prove yourself as a qualified actor by having a rant at a co-star and trying to kick them off the set. Noting she was also dropped from the Mission Impossible Franchise, I think it's safe to say that she may be the issue as opposed to her co-workers.

It's totally Hugh Grant. He's taken over the mantel of grumpy old actor from the late great Sean Connery.
TheUnworthyThor - 2/28/2024, 11:18 AM
It was Meryl Streep.
BreakTheCode - 2/28/2024, 11:19 AM
Could be Ewan McGregor. Hope it’s not but it could be Doctor Sleep.
TheVisionary25 - 2/28/2024, 11:26 AM
@BreakTheCode - the number 1 on the call sheet thing is what throws me off

The movie that had Hugh Grant had Meryl Streep in it who was the title character so I feel like she would have been number 1 (she never specifies if it’s a male or female) while Ewan would be no 1 on Doctor Sleep since he was the lead.

I hope not , dude seems like a genuinely nice guy.
Polaris - 2/28/2024, 12:43 PM
@TheVisionary25 - If Meryl Streep wasn't in the scene then Grant would be number 1. Also that was earlier in her career so it's easier for an actor to feel like they could be assholes to her with no consecuences
TheVisionary25 - 2/28/2024, 1:08 PM
@Polaris - oh I see

I didn’t know that’s how it went in regards to the call sheet

Thanks 😊
JoeInTheBox - 2/28/2024, 1:51 PM
@TheVisionary25 - I hope it wasn't Ewan, but their characters also did not interact much in Doctor Sleep. Not only but he has a nice public persona, but he did do his ex-wife and children dirty while getting with Mary Elizabeth Winstead(and her with her ex-husband).
TheVisionary25 - 2/28/2024, 4:21 PM
@JoeInTheBox - oh damn

That’s messed up
RolandD - 2/28/2024, 5:53 PM
@JoeInTheBox - He got with MEW and her husband? What a freak! 😉
JoeInTheBox - 3/1/2024, 7:58 AM
@RolandD - Haha, I mean...if that's what he's into?
RolandD - 3/1/2024, 8:29 AM
@JoeInTheBox - I couldn’t resist. Lol.
mgeoff88 - 2/28/2024, 11:20 AM
Definitely Hugh Grant. Guy is a prick. I never understood his appeal.
