Every so often someone emerges in a field and manages to not only revolutionize it, but do so several times. Steven Allan Spielberg (born December 18, 1946) is one of those people, with a career that has gone uninterrupted since the mid-70's and is one of the most influential powers in Hollywood.

** In a reversal role, Spielberg has considered Creator/JohnLandis and Creator/MeganFox this to him, at first treating them was fellow innovators to have a healthy working relationship, only to realize their true colors. During the production of ''Film/TwilightZoneTheMovie'', Spielberg [[WeUsedToBeFriends ended his friendship]] with Landis after realizing his irresponsibility that claimed the lives of Vic Morrow and two child actors, while Landis blamed everyone for the accident, [[NeverMyFault but himself]]. You cannot blame Spielberg for falling out with Landis. Then, Fox, who had worked on the initial installments for the ''TransformersFilmSeries'', acted like an UngratefulBitch despite the films' financial success and compared Creator/MichaelBay to UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, enough of a BerserkButton for Spielberg, especially since he is Jewish and having made movies featuring UsefulNotes/NaziGermany as the antagonistic force such as ''Film/SchindlersList'' which prompted Spielberg to stop satirizing the Nazis in future genre projects, to order Bay to fire her, leading to her career slump from that point on. Even though it became a CreatorKiller for Landis and a StarDerailingRole for Fox for their fallouts with Spielberg, it was their own fault rather then Spielberg's for their careers phasing out afterwards.

** Creator/CrispinGlover had worked on Spielberg's produced work ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', but when he learned Spielberg was part of a production conspiracy against him by using his likeness without his permission and pay on TheOtherDarrin for his character George [=McFly=] in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'', Glover successfully sues Spielberg that changed Screen Actors Guild privileges form that point on, while [[ThisIsUnforgivable never forgiving Spielberg for doing that in the first place]], [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown leading him years after the lawsuit to later write]] TheReasonYouSuckSpeech critique [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown that derides his films lacking depth and not taking risks]].

** Creator/ShiaLaBeouf started out feeling like a dream come true when working with Steven on ''Film/{{Transformers}}'', however he has gradually become disillusioned with him following his experience on ''Film/TransformersFilmSeries'' sequels, ''Film/{{Disturbia}}'', ''Film/EagleEye'' and ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', realizing how much of an creativity-wise inept filmmaker and SellOut he has become at that time, with the first ''Transformers'' film being the only Spielberg project he liked. He also viewed Spielberg as a failure of a human being when after the reception to ''Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'' he gave Shia advise not to read about himself in the media, but [=LaBeouf=] felt irritated by what he perceived to be non-advice and a lack of understanding, saying "Thereís no way to not do that. For me to not read that means I need to not take part in society. The generation previous to mine didnít have the immediate response [of the internet]. If you were Creator/MarkHamill [in Film/StarWars], you could lie to yourself. You could find the pockets of joy, and turn a blind eye to the shit over there." Shia also implies he blames Spielberg for one of the factors of his [[StarDerailingRole acting career going south]], [[NeverMyFault besides his own off-screen]] HairTriggerTemper NiceCharacterMeanActor antics reported by the media.

* AuthorAppeal: In most of Spielberg's films, fathers or father-figures are either [[DisappearedDad absent]] or [[ParentalIssues aloof]]. [[http://voices.yahoo.com/steven-spielbergs-daddy-issues-manifested-film-1499577.html Several]] [[http://www.hollywood.com/news/movies/42791504/how-steven-spielberg-s-daddy-issues-influenced-every-film-from-e-t-to-lincoln?page=all essays]] have analyzed this as a manifestation of Steven's childhood getting projected into his art (his own father strongly disapproved of his interest in movies, though he admitted he was wrong after Steven's incredible success).

** Subverted with Creator/BenStiller, while he accounted the time when his hero Spielberg grabbed the JerkassBall towards him and went PrimaDonnaDirector on him during the production of ''Film/EmpireOfTheSun'' when Stiller messes up and says "cut," only for Spielberg to give out an angry WhatTheHellHero lecture towards him for not being in the position of saying "cut" which only the director can say. However, that did not stop him from working on two films for Spielberg's company Creator/DreamworksPictures, ''Film/TheRuins'' and ''Film/TropicThunder'', later when he became an established star.
