I like this one.

 

Tallulah Bankhead on Bette Davis: “Don’t think I don’t know who’s been spreading gossip about me. After all the nice things I’ve said about that hag. When I get hold of her, I’ll tear out every hair of her mustache!”

 

I love the word hag.

They are hilarious, speedy ! I went straight to your link and read every one of them. And there must be a lot more, besides those.

 

It was especially funny when the article had a nasty comment by one star about another, and then the other star commenting on the first one immediately afterwards. Oh, that makes no sense. Here, I'll demonstrate:

 

William Holden on Humphrey Bogart: “I hated the bastard.”

 

 Humphrey Bogart on William Holden: “A dumb prick.”

 

How disillusioning !  (but funny.)

I heard that Ginger Rogers apparently had an unusual amount of peach fuzz on her face, which she was very self conscious about.

 

I believe after Rogers was cast in Judy Garland's part in "The Barkleys of Broadway," Garland sent her a shaving mug and brush with a passive aggressive "congratulations."

 

Mean, but hilarious.

I just read this article about actors insulting one another.  Hilarious! I especially loved Bette Davis' barb against Cary Grant and Carole Lombard's against Vivien Leigh.  Lol.

Can guys be "catty"? If not, what is the word when guys act like that? Doggy?

I love this kind of stuff.

 

Sadly, I don't know of any examples to give, so I'll enjoy reading what y'all come up with...

 

I can only think of something someone said of KATHERINE HEPBURN, although I don't think another actress said it.  If it was, then I regrettably don't know who.  But I've always heard it was attributed to writer DOROTHY PARKER---

 

"She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B".

I read that a group of people were discussing an actress who was reportedly a nymphomaniac to which Judy Garland contributed: "When you can calm her down." I don't think the actress's name was confirmed, but it was rumored to be Vivien Leigh.

 

Oscar Levant reportedly commented on Garland's singing style during her last sad years: "A vibrato in search of a voice."

 

I remember reading in a book of movie quotes the title of a critic's review for the 1976 Barbra Streisand version of A STAR IS BORN: "A Bore Is Starred." Another review read: "A Star is Stillborn."

 

Walter Matthau, who reportedly had a very stormy working relationship with Streisand during the production of HELLO DOLLY!: "I'm number 6 at the box office. Right below Barbra Streisand. Can you imagine being below Barbra Streisand? Someone get me a bag, I may throw up!"

 

Ava Gardner on Frank Sinatra's 1960s marriage to Mia Farrow: "Ha! I always knew Frank would end up in bed with a boy!"
