Their hit series Star Trek may have ended 45 years ago, but the decades-long feud between stars George Takei and William Shatner rages on!
During an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, George, who played Hikaru Sulu on the sci-fi drama, didn't hide his resentment for his 83-year-old former co-star, taking aim at his "self-centered" personality, which George claims kept William in the dark about his homosexuality.
"At the end of the week [the Star Trek cast would] have our wrap parties and they [the cast and crew] bring their wives and husbands and boyfriends or girlfriends, and I quite regularly brought 'a buddy,'" George explained to host Bill Maher.
"My colleagues did know but they were cool about it because they knew that if I made a public statement about it or made it very obvious, then my career would be destroyed," he continued. "But it just went right over his [William's] head. He was the only one that didn't know."
The Canadian star's obliviousness to George's homosexuality wasn't the only trait to get on the Japanese-American's nerves. The 77-year-old also maintains William was extremely difficult to work with.
"Canadians have a certain image of being even-tempered and friendly and all that. Well, he is a person who is that way with himself. He is very self-centred," George shared, adding, "We work together and we're professionals, so we get the work done, but it's with a lot of difficulty."
