When one legendary actor has something nasty to say about another, you don't want to get in the way

Katherine Hepburn on Sharon Stone

“It’s a new low for actresses when you have to wonder what’s between her ears instead of her legs.”

Bette Davis on Joan Crawford
“Joan Crawford—I wouldn’t sit on her toilet!”
“I wouldn’t piss on Joan Crawford if she were on fire.”
“Joan Crawford—Hollywood’s first case of syphilis.”
“She has slept with every male star at MGM except Lassie.”
Joan Crawford on Bette Davis
“Bette will play anything, so long as she thinks someone is watching. I’m a little more selective than that.”
“She may have more Oscars … She’s also made herself into something of a joke.”
“Miss Davis was always partial to covering up her face in motion pictures. She called it 'art.' Others might call it camouflage—a cover-up for the absence of any real beauty.”
John Wayne on Clark Gable
“Gable’s an idiot. You know why he’s an actor? It’s the only thing he’s smart enough to  do .
Walter Matthau on Barbra Streisand
“I have more talent in my smallest fart than you have in your entire body.”

Ava Gardner on Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra
“I always knew Frank would end up in bed with a boy.”
Frank Sinatra on Shelly Winters
“A bowlegged bitch of a Brooklyn blonde.”
Shelly Winters on Frank Sinatra
“A skinny, no-talent, stupid Hoboken bastard.
Sir John Gielgud on Ingrid Bergman
“Dear Ingrid—speaks five languages and can’t act in any of them.”
Dean Martin on James Stewart
“There’s a statue of Jimmy Stewart in the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the statue talks better than he does.”
Barbara Stanwyck on Marilyn Monroe
“Her body has gone to her head.”
Marlon Brando on James Dean
“Mr. Dean appears to be wearing my last year’s wardrobe and using my last year’s   talent."
Richard Burton on Marlon Brando
“Marlon has yet to learn to speak. He should have been born two generations before and acted in silent films.”
Bill Murray on Chevy Chase
“Medium talent.”
Susan Sarandon on Mel Gibson
“Mel Gibson is somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun. He’s beautiful, but only on the outside.”
Bette Davis on Cary Grant
“He needed willowy or boyish girls like Katharine Hepburn to make him look what they now call macho. If I’d co-starred with Grant or if Crawford had, we’d have eaten him for breakfast.
Cary Grant on Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift  and James Dean
“I have no rapport with the new idols of the screen, and that includes Marlon Brando and his style of Method acting. It certainly includes Montgomery Clift and that God-awful James Dean. Some producer should cast all three of them in the same movie and let them duke it out. When they've  finished each other off, James Stewart, Spencer Tracy and I will return and start making real movies again like we used to.”
