When chemistry between characters is great on-screen, it's easy to believe that the same is true for the actors in real life. Sadly, this is not always so. Whether the relationship is doomed from the start or the many hours spent together on-set finally drive the actors apart, co-stars who hate each other are much more common than you'd think.

'Grey's Anatomy' is one of the longest-running shows on TV and many actors have passed through the halls of Seattle Grace Hospital. Not all of them got on well, as you might expect, but over the years a number of the show's stars have spoken about bad blood and toxic behavior on set. In 2021, it was revealed that Patrick Dempsey became very difficult to work with and created a bad atmosphere on set. Now, co-star Isaiah Washington has made a shocking claim that Ellen Pompeo was paid off by producers to keep quiet about Dempsey's behavior. In a podcast interview with Tavis Smiley, Washington claimed that she "took $5 million under the table" during the height of the #MeToo Movement "to not tell the world how toxic and nasty Patrick Dempsey really was."

This isn't the first time Isaiah Washington has spoken out about his 'Grey's Anatomy' co-stars. Want to know more? Check out this gallery to find out which co-stars can no longer stand each other.
