Epic Photos of World-Famous Rivals Getting Friendly

Some people you just don’t expect to see photographed together, which is why these famous adversaries socializing has to be seen to be believed.

The Bride and O-Ren

The on-screen battle was intense, but Thurman and Liu managed to share a smile or two on set.

One of the most spectacular rivalries ever on the big screen is between the Bride and O-Ren Ishii from the epic Kill Bill Volume 1.

The Bride, played by Uma Thurman, had one goal only: to take revenge against those who ruined her life and murdered her baby. O-Ren (Lucy Liu) was the first one on the Bride’s hit list.

The Bride scalped off O-Ren’s head, but that didn’t stop the two from taking this photo right after the fight.

The Predator and Dutch

The Predator, on the right, and Schwarzenegger, on the left. In case that needed clarifying.

While he was hunting an alien intruder better known as the Predator, in the jungles of Central America, Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer (Arnold Schwarzenegger), the leader of a U.S. Army Special Forces’ elite rescue team, probably didn’t think about politics and running for elected office, nor did shaking his mortal enemy’s hand as an option.

Some 15 years later it all happened, and Ah-nold became the Governor of California with the endorsement of the Predator himself.
