She's one of the biggest divas in entertainment - and she's a pig. Yes, according to her Muppets co-stars, Miss Piggy can be incredibly difficult to work with. But Piggy is just one of several Hollywood animal actors with reputations as troublesome, demanding, selfish, and difficult-to-please creatures.
Animals on set can be notoriously troublesome, but there are also lots of stories about pleasant pet thespians. The horse from Mr. Ed was apparently a pro who practically learned to talk himself. Jennifer Aniston has said the dog in Marley & Me was a pleasure to work with. Robert Pattinson reportedly developed a strong bond with his elephant co-star in Water for Elephants.But this is a list about those other animals, the difficult animal actors: the diva dogs, the megalomaniac monkeys, the cocky cockatoos. We're talking about animals that had their own on-set demands. These animals in movies and TV pooped wherever they pleased or generally held up production. On this list, you'll find the most demanding and troublesome animals, including animal actors that attacked if they were not getting enough screen time (and no, we don't mean Charlie Sheen).
