As reported by Decider, Andy Rooney was in almost every way imaginable a far cry from the honest and innocent characters he played in his movies. In addition to the questionable personal behavior already mentioned, he was “blisteringly bombastic,” as well as “abrasive, nasty, curt, and rude,” according to those who remember working with the star. His poor professional behavior even continued after the production was finished.

After co-starring with Elizabeth Taylor in “National Velvet” in 1944 (above) and taking advantage of the teenager while filming, Rooney didn’t have many nice things to say about the young star, calling her “entitled,” adding she lacked talent, per Daily Mail. Based on revelations following Rooney’s death, he was unkind and spoke poorly of many people he worked with all throughout his career. In retrospect, Andy Rooney never really was the nice guy we thought he was — just another example of classic Hollywood’s grand illusion.
