Constance Wu has already been labeled a difficult diva with an evil bunny sidekick who leaves a wake of bunny poo destruction everywhere they go. She threw a hissy fit on Twitter after learning that the show that made her a star, Fresh Off The Boat, got renewed (because she wanted to do another project) and there’s already been talk that she was a menace on the set of Hustlers. Now there’s a rumor that Constance Wu demanded top billing over Jennifer Lopez, who is a bigger star and produced the whole thing. Err, if Constance Wu actually won a diva-off with JLo and made it out alive, then she deserves that dumb top billing win.
According to Page Six:
After being dubbed a more “difficult diva” than Jennifer Lopez or Cardi B by those on the set of their stripper movie “Hustlers,” actress Constance Wu is proving her prima donna proclivities by insisting she get top billing on the new movie.
Then, on the NYC set of “Hustlers” this spring, Wu Made enemies anew with her diva demands. One on-set source told Page Six that Wu was “a pain in the f–king ass. She just won’t agree to do anything … It’s like a cliché. She is very talented — but all signs are pointing to a difficult diva.” Another insider added, “She’s a total piece of work. She thinks it’s OK to treat people badly and say out loud whatever comes to her.” To make a sticky situation stinky, Wu even let her pet bunny poop all over the Chelsea penthouse rented for her by the “Hustlers” production.
The source claims that Constance and JLo didn’t have a diva-off involving who could make an assistant cry first while giving their Starbucks order. A source claims that JLo agreed to give Constance Wu top billing months ago because, “Constance is in the unique position of being a part of projects that are breaking through Asian-American representation in Hollywood.”
But Constance’s rep denied it all to UsWeekly:
“Constance had no knowledge or awareness of acts on her behalf of Hustlers to have reporting mirror that of the film’s castings or contractual billings. Representatives associated with her and the film did engage media outlets to correct misrepresentations of the film’s characters and castings in the spirit of calibrating credits to accurately reflect the guidelines set forth in standard legal contracts.”
Possible translation: “We’re using a lot of big Hollywood talk to confuse you and to get you to think Page Six’s story is all crap, but it’s true.” And since Constance Wu may have beat JLo in the Diva Hunger Games, I want to see her battle Faye Dunaway next. May the odds ever be in your favor, evil bunny.
