Here we will disclose the celebrities notoriously difficult to work with.

Norton is the type that takes his work so seriously he finds it impossible to break character and mingle with cast-mates. The Avengers did not welcome him back to play the role of Bruce Banner, and stated: “Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members.” Ouch.
