11 Young Divas on the Set

Posted by Angela on March 30th, 2010

Whether it be a ridiculous riders or an expletive-filled tirades, it’s no secret that nearly all the stars of Hollywood have acted a little snotty at some point or another. Seems like that’s just what a big break does to you! Some established pros like Madonna, Shannon Doherty, Kim Basinger, and Mariah Carey are notorious for their diva demands, but here are 11 stars of the next generation whose egos don’t make them any easier to work with on a set.

1. Blake Lively

Gossip Girl Blake Lively reportedly had two production assistants fired because she didn’t like them and gets a wake-up call for work every morning. The blonde beauty is already the star of the show, but insiders say that she continually whines about getting less exciting storylines than co-star Leighton Meester. Not only that, Blake’s bad behavior is even influencing her boyfriend and co-star Penn Badgley! We hear that the lovebirds never leave each other’s sides and won’t even show up until the other is ready.

2. Shenae Grimes

Don’t let Shenae’s All-American good looks and winning smile fool you! Page Six reports that the 90210 star is “tormenting everyone on set” and “acts rude to the cast, crew, and extras.” Show sources say that Shenae even once yelled at a guest star, “Who the hell are you?” in an outburst and makes catty comments like, “This is my show – everyone else is riding my coattails.”

3. Lea Michele

Anyone that’s seen Glee knows that Lea has the voice of the diva, but you might not have known that her attitude also rivals that of a diva. Sources say that Lea has been difficult to work with since she started out on Broadway, and is now just as unbearable on the set of Glee. Turns out that Lea is just as high-maintenance as her character, Rachel Berry, is on the show.

4. Emma Watson

Charming young British actress Emma Watson started her first year at Brown University last September, while concurrently filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow, Part 1. It seems like the distance and traveling has been getting to Emma though, as a source says that Emma has been “even more moody than usual. She’s always complaining, showing up late, and has upset both cast and crew members with her rudeness.”

5. Lindsay Lohan

It might seem like just yesterday that Lindsay played sweet twins Hallie and Annie in The Parent Trap, but she’s all grown up now. In fact, Lindsay’s supposedly so impossible to work with that she was banned from the set of Ugly Betty before even completing a guest appearance. It might have caused a few problems for the story arc the producers had planned, but a source says their biggest priority was getting rid of Lindsay, and fast.

6. Ashlee Simpson

The reboot of Melrose Place just started airing last September, but news of Ashlee Simpson getting booted off the show hit the Internet by November. A spy says that Ashlee was “a total diva on set, late all the time, and deeply disliked by fellow cast members.” While all that was bad enough, Ashlee “could barely act” and producers needed to cut someone in order to have wanted Heather Locklear to reprise her role.

7. Kristin Cavallari

We have no problem believing that Laguna Beach alum and star of The Hills Kristin Cavallari is more than a little demanding. Kristin held up a taping of Lopez Tonight last November when she took 15 minutes longer to get ready than she should have. While she was getting the finishing touches done on her makeup, an insider says that members of the crew were visibly upset and host George Lopez even called her out on the air. Considering The Hills’ final season starts in April, Kristin needs to air out that attitude of hers, or she’ll definitely be left with no work.

8. Megan Fox

Megan Fox is one of the hottest brunettes in the world, and the raven-haired beauty took extreme measures to keep it that way, at least in her movies. Megan reportedly banned producers from casting attractive brunette actresses in Michael Bay’s Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. An anonymous letter blasting Megan’s rude behavior on set was posted on Michael’s website last September by “three crew members that have worked with Michael.” The letter even goes so far as to suggest that “dumb-as-a-rock” Megan become a porn star in the future.

9. Miley Cyrus

Miley has a lot of fans, but not many on the set of her Disney Channel show Hannah Montana. Miley’s diva-esque attitude has turned off her co-stars Emily Osment and Mitchel Musso, and what’s worse is the fact that her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, is encouraging it. The problems reportedly started a year and a half ago when he decided Miley could do much better for herself as a singer. Show insiders say that he even shares his daughter’s bad attitude, having been overheard mouthing off about Disney executives himself several times. Sounds like producers will be happy to be rid of the volatile father-daughter duo as the show comes to an end next spring.

10. Paris Hilton

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton is obviously used to an extravagant lifestyle, which insiders say she brings to work with her. She reportedly shocked producers on the set of The Other Guys, starring Eva Mendes, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson and Will Ferrell. Paris had a tiny role and was only on set for one day of shooting, but a source says she demanded “live lobsters to be prepared fresh when she’s ready to eat and a bottle of Grey Goose vodka.”

11. Jonas Brothers

Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas reportedly postponed production on their Disney show JONAS for two weeks due to their high demands. A show insider described the brothers as “headstrong,” adding that high-maintenance teens demanded “high-end hairstylists who cost $500 a day.” Not only that, producers must have been annoyed that the boys were forcing the wardrobe budget to nearly $20,000 per episode. Not only that, the witness says that “they want to keep the clothes!”
