They used to be the best of friends
. They would do everything together. Two acting couples that would meet up once or twice a week for dinner or movies or just drinks. One is an A+ list couple consisting of an A+ list mostly movie actor and his actress wife. The other couple consists of straight B listers. It didn't matter because they got along and you could not get the couples to not hang out, they were that close. At one point, the two couples decided to work on a movie together. The A listers took charge of the project even though it was the idea of the B lister. She had never worked on anything like this or her new capacity so was willing to let them take the lead. Everything was great during filming and the movie became a big hit. Huge. The B listers assumed they were going to get rich and get to work on a bunch of other personal projects. One tiny problem. The A listers had structured everything so they cleaned up and made most of the money to be had. Something like 75%. Our B listers had to settle for about 5% and they were told it should have been way more, but they signed things the A lister told them to sign. Since that time, the couples never speak. Not a word. If they run into each other at a red carpet, it is a grimaced expression and they move on. Apparently this is something the A listers do frequently with other people who have good ideas.
