Crazy Rich Asians Star Constance Wu Slams “Diva” Allegations
"We won’t be knocked down."
Another day, another claim that a female lead is being a "diva" and another attempt to pit women against each other.
Look, we get it. We imagine that when you're a Hollywood actor, it could be easy to feel a little entitled at times. We're sure both women AND men in the industry have been guilty of this.
The latest claim is Constance Wu, who reportedly overstepped her boundaries and edged into the diva category. According to Page Six, she has been dubbed as a more "difficult diva" than Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B in her latest film with the pair, Hustlers, where she reportedly insisted she get top billing on the new film.
Now this isn't an allegation you want next to your name *cough* Katherine Heigl, Kanye West *cough*.
Thank gawd Constance's reps are working overtime to clean up this report. They contacted Us Weekly to deny the actress’ involvement in the billing demands, claiming:
"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."
Constance also made a comment herself in the statement:
"We made this film with an incredible spirit of sisterhood and love. Any reports otherwise have felt like an age-old attempt to pit us against each other and knock us down when, in truth, we had the best time making this! We won’t be knocked down. We will continue to share and celebrate this story together, as sisters. Thank you to all the fans for believing in us and supporting this film."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
The claims came after an on-set source went to Page Six saying Constance is "a pain in the f***ing ass. She just won’t agree to do anything … It’s like a cliche. She is very talented — but all signs are pointing to a difficult diva."
