Costars Who Really Hated Each Other

See which A-list actors made a bet over who'd bed her first back in the day -- and her "gross" interaction with Trump.

Kathleen Turner's interview with Vulture began with her slamming Elizabeth Taylor's voice as "awful" and only got better from there.

The "War of the Roses" star sat down for a lengthy chat with the outlet, where she spilled some '80s Hollywood secrets, dished on her unpleasant experience on the set of "Friends" and had some choice words for Donald Trump, Nicolas Cage and Burt Reynolds.

The whole piece is worth the read, but check out just a few of the highlights below.

Not-So Friendly "Friends"

Turner played Chandler Bing's (Matthew Perry) transgender father on the show, appearing in just three episodes of the sitcom, but it wasn't something she looked back on fondly.

"I didn’t feel very welcomed by the cast," she recalled. "I remember I was wearing this difficult sequined gown — and my high heels were absolutely killing me. I found it odd that none of the actors thought to offer me a seat. Finally it was one of the older crew members that said, 'Get Miss Turner a chair.'"

"The 'Friends' actors were such a clique — but I don't think my experience with them was unique," she continued. "I think it was simply that they were such a tight little group that nobody from the outside mattered."

She added that she did "respect the camaraderie they had," which she said was also apparent on screen.

More Behind the Scenes Drama

Burt Reynolds threw some shade towards Turner on "Watch What Happens Live" earlier this year, calling her the most overrated actor of the '70s and '80s and admitting the two didn't get along when they worked on the 1988 movie "Switching Channels." From her new interview, it's clear they both feel the same way.

"Working with Burt Reynolds was terrible. The first day Burt came in he made me cry. He said something about not taking second place to a woman. His behavior was shocking," she said. "It never occurred to me that I wasn't someone's equal. I left the room sobbing. I called my husband and said, 'I don't know what to do.' He said, 'You just do the job.' It got to be very hostile because the crew began taking sides. But as for the performance, I was able to put the negativity aside. I'm not convinced Burt was."

She also said Nicolas Cage was "very difficult" on the set of "Peggy Sue Got Married," which was directed by the actor's uncle, Francis Ford Coppola.

Trump Grossed Her Out

Turner was asked whether she ever crossed paths with POTUS back in the '80s and he certainly didn't leave a good impression.

"Yes. Yuck. He has this gross handshake," she answered.

"He goes to shake your hand and with his index finger kind of rubs the inside of your wrist," she added. "He's trying to do some kind of seductive intimacy move. You pull your hand away and go yuck."

That was it ... but yeah, yuck indeed.

The Most Wanted Woman In Hollywood

After the release of the 1981 film "Body Heat," Turner had all eyes on her -- including those belonging to Michael Douglas, Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson.

"I understood later, from Michael Douglas, that there was a competition between him and Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty about who would get me first," she said. She added that she didn't like "being thought of as a trophy," adding that "there was an unspoken assumption that women were property to be claimed."

As for whether any of them won the sexist bet: ""None of them did, by the by."
