No other Hollywood feud is quite as legendary as Bette and Joan's. Their feud was based on a variety of factors, from career competitiveness to even fighting over a man. The feud turned uglier when Bette was nominated for an Oscar over Joan for her performance in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.
When they weren't fighting over Oscars, they were trading public insults with each other.
“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," Joan had famously said.
And Bette had insults of her own, once saying that “[Joan] has slept with every male star at MGM except Lassie."
The feud lasted a lifetime, and even after their deaths, is still a much-heated topic.
