Stories of Celebs who are Nasty Cunts

I used to be a bartender at a hotel, and Vivica A. Fox came in with a guy late one night after an event. He ordered a drink for himself and a house red for her, so I turned to her and asked if she preferred cab or merlot. She gave me the DIRTIEST look, like, how dare I address her directly, and flounced off to a table without answering. The guy said, 'Just give her red, whatever...' and didn't leave a tip (they ordered four rounds, and no tip each time). They also complained that someone else came in and sat at a table near them and tried to get me to make them move. The other guests didn’t even try to approach her or anything — she was just mad that they dared to sit at a neighboring table.

I sat next to Jamie Lee Curtis in first class on a flight. she had the window seat, was wearing a baseball hat and sunglasses. She turned to me once everyone boarded and said, "I know you know who I am, but I am really trying to get some rest on this flight so nice to meet you but please don't bother me." I smiled politely and went back to my book.

Ha I have a JLC story, not cunty, but very self aware- it was the late 90's, and I was heavy into rock climbing at the time. I was at Adventure 16 (the Neiman Marcus of outdoor equipment), waiting to pay for something, when she comes up and starts yelling at the top of her lungs, "LOOK AT YOUR ASS! IT'S AMAZING! EVERYONE LOOK AT THAT ASS!". It startled me, and I was befuddled, gamely saying, "But you're JLC, you have an amazing body (and she did at the time). She kept on ranting about my ass until I paid for my stuff and got the hell out of there.

I would have said (and it would have been the absolute truth), "I'm sorry madam, but I have absolutely no idea who you are".

One time my friend, a famous celebrity (who inexplicably was in the middle), and I were peering through a glass at items for sale in a store. I said to my friend, "are these good prices?" -this was all high-end camera stuff, Hasselblad, etc. She just turned and looked at me. I said, as a joke, "I'm sorry, I was addressing his Grace". She turned and looked at him, and got red-faced. Thank goodness she knew what that kind of address meant. It would have went totally over the heads of most Americans.

Kim Fields was an uppity cunt when she came into a store where I worked in the 90s. She had found her roots and was dressed in African chic attired and sunglasses (indoors). Kim got all pissy when the security guard (who was this very friendly black guy) approached her and told her how much he respected her work. After she snubbed him and walked away, he came over to me and said "Damn! Tootie's a bitch!"

Another day Mindy Cohn came in. Mindy was flirty and sweet, but the person she was with (who happened to be Cloris Leachman's daughter) was an absolute cunt. I knew it was Cloris's daughter as she was using her mom's credit card to pay for stuff she was buying. When I asked to see her ID she went full-on Karen. Mindy ended up just paying for it and apologized for her friend's rudeness.

Years ago I had dinner with a friend and his visiting friend from New York who was a producer for the ABC Evening News. He worked closely with Peter Jennings who had the passive aggressive habit of making him wait in his office in silence for 15-20 minutes before he got around to addressing him and the matter at hand. This was regardless of whether he was summoned, had a scheduled meeting, or dropped in impromptu with a pressing concern. It wasn't for chit chat. Underlings time was not valuable to him.

I saw Prince Harry at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

Another classic Faye encounter, courtesy of [italic]Broadway World[/italic] ...

[quote]I was working alone in a very ritzy boutique in West Hollywood/Beverly Hills. I had only been working there a few weeks, so I was very conscious of making sure I made a good impression on all the celebrity clients who came in.

[quote]As I said, I was alone in the store (the owner and manager were downtown on a buying trip), and she came in. She was looking for a suit. We carried lots of suits. She started pulling things, handing them to me, until I had a very large and heavy pile of clothes in my arms, and she said, "Hold these for me." I assumed she meant to put them "on hold" for her while she went and ran another errand, so I started to lay the things down on the counter and organize this huge pile of clothes so I could neatly hang them and hold them for her. She noticed what I was doing (she was about 20 feet away at this point), and literally screamed at me, [bold]"I SAID HOLD THEM FOR ME! WHILE I WALK AROUND THE STORE! ARE YOU STUPID?"[/bold]

[quote]So, being young and new to the job, I did. I followed her around the store like a human coat rack, as she threw more and more clothes on top of me. Then, after about 2 hours of dealing with just general unpleasantness as she tried things on, she finally bought one suit. Not a great sale at all, but whatever ...

[quote]As she left, I went into the dressing room, which of course was an utter disaster—not one thing on a hanger, everything crumpled all over the floor—and as I was cleaning up, I noticed she'd left her sports bra on the bench in there. So, being nice, I ran out front (her Mercedes was parked directly in front of the store) and gestured to her through the passenger side window, being sure to be discreet about the bra.

[quote]Well, she got all angry again and started very aggressively gesturing for me to come around into traffic so I could hand her the bra through the driver's side door instead. Yes, that's right, her power trip is so extreme that she refused to roll down the passenger side window to let me hand her her bra and made me walk into traffic to hand it to her through the driver's side.

[quote]The kicker is, after all that, the owner returned to the store, and I told her that Ms. Dunaway had been in, and before I could go on she said, "Oh god, we hate her. You don't have to help her if she ever comes in here.” So I'd been scraping and bowing for no reason. HA!

In walked Karen Black, who was filming a movie in Austin. She proceeded to get tipsy after a couple drinks and walked up to the piano and grabbed the microphone from Ms. Wright and addressed the singer and the crowd.

"I know Burt Bacharach and he would not approve of the way that you are singing it. Your interpretation is all wrong."

She then instructed Ms. Wright to accompany her on the piano while she sang it in the correct manner. Karen slurred her way through the song and everyone politely applauded. Karen the left the bar and went up to her room.

In the late 80s she had to meet David Letterman at the airport and ride in a limo to a studio for a show - she was supposed to brief him on the show.

This involved my partner. He was sent to do a big TV piece on Annie Liebovitz, which she’d agreed to participate in.

After they arrived at her studio, she immediately started snapping at them as the crew set up (and they weren’t at all in her way). There was eye rolling and harrumphing and nasty asides. She was being aggressively rude and cunty and looking to pick fights over imaginary inconveniences. Usually, entitled celebs just need to throw a hissy to get it out of their systems and then, after some coddling, calm down. Not so here. She was just getting nastier and the cameras weren’t even rolling.

Finally, my partner went over to her and said, “I don’t want to be here any more than you do. So let’s make everyone happy. We are out of here.”

The puff piece on Annie as Legendary Photog for a major outlet never aired. But we do have that story to dine out on.

The gate agent said "On the 2:00 Atlanta flight?" and he seriously just stood there not speaking. She then said "ID Please?" and he basically just threw his entire wallet at her. She handed it back and said "I just need the driver's license." He was furious, and basically stuck his license in her face. She had no idea who he was, and I don't think she even realized it after she looked at his ID. Total asshole. She finished checking him in then said "I hope your day improves." She was only about 25 yrs old, so when I got up next to the counter I just said - he thinks he's super important - so I told her who he was - not a clue. Side note - he was way taller than I'd expected.

When Faye Dunaway was married to Peter Wolf and lived in Boston’s Back Bay, she frequently shopped at Lord &Taylor.

She was notorious for returning expensive items of clothing after having obviously worn them.

After a while, it became a game among the store employees. Those who spotted Faye entering the store first would scatter and hide and whoever was the last to notice her had to wait on her.

I worked at Tower records in NYC in the late 80s/early 90s. Waited on tons of celebs. Biggest cunts- Steve Martin, Maureen McGovern, Patti Smith. Nicest people- Joshua Bell, Howard McGillin, Dianne Reeves and Keith Richards, who did an in-store and spent time with us in the back room holding court after the signing.

Whoopi was a minor bitch at first. If we were working the floor instead of the registers, we had to go up to every customer in our department to ask if they needed help. I approached Whoopi and before I could open my mouth, she said- Please don't ask for an autograph. If I have to do it for you, I have to do it for everyone.

I responded, completely over it, "Actually, I work here and we have to ask everyone if they need help finding anything." She looked at me and burst out laughing, embarrassed. I told her I hated going up to strangers and bothering them as much as she hated to be bothered and then I left her alone, so she was okay with me.

A few times I got called down the street to sub in at Tower Video when they were super busy or short handed. Lauren Bacall terrorized that place and everyone was afraid of her, so they always stuck me with her since I was the outsider. I never had a problem with her. I don't know if it was because I wasn't afraid of her, or I had been warned so much about her that I was more prepared, but I wasn't nice to her, I wasn't rude to her, I was just polite and crisp and didn't take her shit. Not that there was really any shit to take.

I stopped subbing in after a few months because I went to part time when school started, until one day I was at the record store and a call came in for me- Hurry up and get down the block. Lauren Bacall was there and wanted the only person in the store who knew anything about movies- me. So I ran down there and helped her out. Of course, no thank you or any kind of gratitude for pulling me in there, just entitlement that of course she should have the employee she wanted.

I wish I could remember what she wanted, but I really was one of the few people there who knew about films. I used to call my mom after every time I waited on her and tell her about it. My mom would always say- Play your cards right, maybe she'll adopt you. Can you imagine? *shudder*

[quote] [bold]David Fincher: ‘I wanted the new Faye Dunaway for Gone Girl’[/bold]

[quote] Moviemaker David Fincher cast British actress Rosamund Pike as his leading lady in new thriller Gone Girl because she reminded him of movie veteran Faye Dunaway. The director admits he would have cast the Chinatown star as the missing wife of Ben Affleck’s character if the film was shot 40 years ago, and he set about trying to find a modern-day equivalent.

[quote]Fincher tells Playboy, “I wanted Faye Dunaway in Chinatown, where you think, ‘This person has experienced avenues of pain that no one can articulate. Or Faye in Network, where it’s, ‘You’re never going to get to the bottom of this, so just stop’. It’s crazy how much Rosamund reminds me of Faye.”

Actress: Della Reese

Place: Hamburger Hamlet restaurant (Sunset Blvd). This restaurant was a popular lunch/dinner catch-all for anyone filming at CBS studios which was nearby. I waited on many celebs during the year+ that I worked there. There was also a much smaller neighborhood HH not far from there that I'd work occasionally, and that one also had celebs in and out all day.

Time: Some time in the mid 70s.

We were having a rather busy lunch shift. She entered the restaurant like a diva on steroids, arms flailing around, sneering at the patron-peasants as she made her way to a (demanded) center of the room (look at me!) table. She was wearing some sort of African dashiki getup with a large headdress (so she could remain low-key and not draw attention to herself of course). She was accompanied by two or three harried looking black males who silently screamed of Help. we are slaves!. She held court there for the next two hours. Nasty? You know it. Vile, ugly human. Her entire demeanor was horrid as she swore a ghetto mile. I caught her eye one unfortunate time. If looks could kill I'd be dead. She had a mouth on her like a longshoreman. She really did believe she shit chocolate ice cream. Nothing was right, nothing came quickly enough. It was a constant game of "One-thinging", where when you bring something there is always another request for something else ... then you bring that and there is yet another request for something else, and on and on and on. I don't recall if a tip was left. I just wanted her to leave. She was not nice and this confused me, as she always came off as pleasant during interviews. She was a total Fakir from Dashiki-Acre.

Assorted Faye fuckery from various old threads ...

[quote]Best Karening by Dunaway story I've ever heard was told right here, probably back in the late 90's, by a guy who worked in a hotel where she had an extended stay while in town for some show that was here. Masterclass or something, maybe. Anyway, she calls to the restaurant in the MORNING, demanding to know: "What is the fish of the day?". The poor guy who posted it described an all-day saga of having to explain to her that the fish hadn't been caught yet and that he couldn't predict the catch and that he was the morning crew and couldn't help her out with the dinner menu. It was escalated to his manager, among many others. To everyone, she demanded an answer to "What IS The Fish of The Day?!". She'd become unhinged, basically being a pest and insulting all hotel staff, with all of them sarcastically screaming to each other "What IS the Fish of The Day?!". The poster himself was a scream. It became a classic Datalounge thread within a thread. Back in the day, the line became a standard message with my friends and family for missed phone calls whereas if you ended up in someone's voicemail, instead of saying "hi, it's mee...yada yada yada...." you'd scream "This IS Miss Dunaway. What IS the fish of the day?!" and then hang up. That Dunaway thread was priceless. Wish I could find it.

[quote]I remember a story here of someone who was a neighbor when she lived off Melrose. He said he would pass her house each day on his way to work. One day he passed her house and rounded the corner only to see Miss Dunaway out back by the alley punching, kicking and cursing a derelict refrigerator that had failed her.

[quote]She was staying at the Georgian Terrace hotel in midtown Atlanta while filming a movie. She had a PA that was provided for hire by the hotel and was not a PA that travelled with her. She asked for the PA to buy her "plum tomatoes". The PA, not understanding, brought her a bag of plums. When she arrived back at the hotel and was handed the bag of plums, Faye got irate and threw the plums--one at a time--at the PA in front of hotel staff. "These are PLUMS! These are NOT not plum TOMATOES!"

This is not a “Faye Dunaway is a CUNT” story, this is a “Faye Dunaway is INSANE” story. Back when I lived in LA, I went to A Votre Santé on La Brea (now closed) for lunch. Just as I was leaving, Dorothy Faye Dunaway waltzes in to pick a to-go order. I walk around the corner, get in my car, and make a right on La Brea. Faye pulls out right in front of me, driving a white convertible. She makes a right on Beverly Blvd, as do I, as I’m heading home to WeHo. Her car suddenly starts swerving back and forth, and her head is bobbing up and down. My first thought is, she’s drunk. I pull into the left lane to avoid rear ending her, and she suddenly slows down and I find myself driving directly beside her.

Then I see that she has strands of linguini hanging out of her mouth, and had moved her takeout food onto her lap, not being able to wait the FIVE MINUTES to get home to Spaulding Ave to eat.

Our eyes met, she realized she was busted looking like au utter pig, and she floored it to get away from me.

[quote]There was at least one person whom even Dunaway was intimidated by. While filming the 1987 movie “Barfly,” co-starring the actress and Mickey Rourke, the notorious Charles Bukowski — who’d written the script, derived from his memoirs — was sometimes on set. “Bukowski was a pugnacious alcoholic and would get into a fight with anyone at the drop of a hat,” said Jonathan Hodges, who was an assistant prop-master on the film. “So she never messed around with him.”

[quote]A New York media insider recalled walking through Times Square in 1981 and seeing the actress and her parents gawking at the lines of “Mommie Dearest” theater-goers that were “literally around the block . . . It’s one of the nicest things I ever saw, a prideful daughter with two very proud parents. “Years later, I find myself sitting with her at the Hollywood Improv. I told her how she gave me one of my favorite moments, when I saw her standing in Times Square with her parents. She cursed me out. Turns out she didn’t like talking about her [now-deceased] parents anymore — how dare I remind her of them.”

Dunaway’s autobiography is interesting, partially because she’s one of the few performers in a memoir like that to go into specifics about acting technique. She goes on and on about acting choices and approaches … which is really quite admirable. Miss Dunaway is a [italic]professional![/italic]

She’s kind of oblique about her long history of substance abuse but acknowledges that food was another addiction of hers. In college she was homesick for the south and gained 20 lbs. miserably eating a lot of fried clam platters alone at Howard Johnson’s.

I think part of her notorious harpy-dom is due to constantly being starving and on a diet. But she’s certifiable due to other issues as well, of course.

Time: Late 70s

Actress: Lauren Bacall

Ms Bacall, accompanied by her agent who told me the story, walks up to a shopgirl and announces, " I'm Lauren Bacall. Do you have anything for me?" This was not a one-off for her, he said. It was customary.

I told this before. My old manager worked in a hotel Cher was staying at while she was in town on tour.

Anyway, the chef worked hard at preparing some fruit salad especially for Cher my old manager served it to Cher. Cher was taken aback like what is this shit and wanted to send it back. My manager didn't play that celebrity catering game and said curtly "sorry, that's all we have" and proceeded to walk away.

Cher said Bitch! Threw the salad bowl at her and it hit her in the back of the head. The manager was shocked and Cher's bodyguard apparently ran over asking if she was ok.

She didn't sue or anything. I asked why not make a better salad for Cher but she said nope, the chef already went out of their way and she doesn't play that celebrity better than thou game. This was a city of about 400k population.

If I remember this was in 2007. French quarters New Orleans(yeah I live here). Brad Pitt and Angie who had bought a mansion in the quarter after Hurricane Katrina. Clover Grill around 0200. I work night shift at a hospital and it was my night off with a few co workers. And we had a few drinks ending up at the Clover. Brad Pitt came in with a dude we think was his bodyguard. We see a lot of the famous here and try not to bug them. Well he looked like he had a few alcoholic drinks in him. As we did. We started talking about the hamburgers and then moved on to other fun things and Brad joined us. Mr. Pitt was as nice as could be and we laughed till we cried with him. And he was super nice to the staff.

AND THEN a big guy comes in and says to Brad "she's been looking for you". And "you need to come back right now". And Brad says "fuck her I'm having fun" and we all cheered. Big guy says something like she wants you home now! Brad gets up and tells us I better get back to the "ball and chain or she will make my life hell" "she can be a real bitch" as I remember. We all assumed it was Angie. And yeah Brad was wasted but fun.

She was nearly killed when she was sliced by the broken shards of glass so badly that she lost most of her blood and required a thousand stitches to close her wounds. When she crashed through the glass, she fell on top of the jagged bottom pieces. The more she tried to change position, the deeper the glass cut. A split second before the top glass fell, she was able to pull herself off the bottom pieces of glass.“

As I approached her and asked to do my pose she stared at me blank faced. I continued talking "you saved my life" I say. "You're the reason I'm alive today". She looks me dead in the eye and says "you'll die soon enough, fatty" and then whispered "obesity." I started crying I had never felt pain like this and she started laughing and said "Are you crying? Stop it. Stop it now" and she flicked my vagina. The photographer took the picture and I headed out of the M&G section and that's when Demi started speaking whale to me.

Yes, R299, but neither is announcing what is not revelatory or worth sharing. And you're literally (in its correct meaning) sharing what you say is not worth sharing all over again.

Perhaps, while it wouldn't be so for others on here on the DL, it may be a revelatory point for you. I share my thoughts with no expectations about their worth or revelation, since the location practically is free and revelations on an anonymous site are usually as unpleasant as that last book in the appalling Christian Biblical Testament.

I told this when we had the Marsha Hunt thread after she died. I interviewed her once and she changed from being friendly to a nasty cunt. She seemed impressed that I had prepared for the interview by watching some of her movies, particularly her Gone with the Wind test, one film where she sings, and her Outer Limits episode. But when I asked her about Frances Farmer and if she knew her when they were both at Paramount in the 1930s she got nasty. I thought you were interested in ME? This interview is OVER. I was shocked as she had a reputation as being a great humanitarian. No amount of back-peddling could save me. Please escort this person OUT.

Darren Criss, if you can classify him as a celebrity in this day and age. I was eating at a pizza parlor in Chicago around 2011 when the Glee tour was going on. He cut an entire line of people waiting and nearly pushed a young girl away from the cash register to order and had 2 bodyguards literally put their hands up to keep anyone away that got within 5 feet of him.

No clue what he was yapping about, but he had a distinct bald spot on the back of his head that was shining under the lights.

I found a J-Lo story. Someone above or on the other threads wrote they had never heard a bad story about her.

While staying at the luxury hotel Melia Duesseldorf, Jennifer Lopez got one of the maids fired from her job. The maid requested an autograph from the superstar and not only was she denied but also was later fired after Lopez complained to management. The maid told the German newspaper Bild, "I cleaned on her floor. And I am an incredibly big fan so I took all my courage and rang the bell to get an autograph. But I was rejected by two assistants at the door. A day later the cleaning company that employed me at the hotel called and said that Ms. Lopez had complained. I was fired right there on the phone! Because of an autograph!"

I have a Shemar Moore story as well lol I've always had a habit of ignoring celebrities so he came into a barbershop/beauty salon I was exiting with a friend. My friend became completely starstruck, I on the other hand, ignored him. Shemar was with a friend of his who kept staring at me, they both had on biking gear and had their bikes with them. Shemar talked to our barber/stylist and I just wanted to get out of there, which bothered my friend because they were really trying to get Shemar's attention. Shemar acted like he didn't notice my friend, so I felt pretty bad which was another reason why I was motioning for us to leave. Not exactly cunty, although Shemar noticed them imo yet acted like they didn't see my friend like completely fawning over their ass lol

Another J Lo

Jennifer Lopez is said to have a long list of demands that must be met if she is going to appear in a film, at a hotel, or at an event, like the World Music Awards in 2010. She reportedly requested having a helicopter kept on standby, a custom-fitted speed boat, and diamond-encrusted headphones to “drown out the sound of the boat’s motor,” as well as an entire floor of a hotel. She is known to throw fits if she doesn't get her way, for example, reportedly losing it at hotel staff if they don't have her favorite grapefruit and lime blossom candles by Jo Malone, which cost around $500 each.

Staff is also not allowed to speak to her, with a flight attendant once saying that when she simply asked Lopez what she would like to drink, she turned to her assistant and said, "Please tell him I'd like a Diet Coke and lime." The attendant added that the actress "wouldn't even look at [them]. It was sad, she seems so sweet in her movies."

An associate was working at a shoe store when singer Angie Stone entered. Angie was very rude, saying that she had to catch a flight and was ordering my associate around, complaining about each pair that my associate brought out. My associate grew tired of her and snapped back at Angie, informing her that she was not that famous especially not famous enough to display such diva behavior. Angie walked out after that with even more of an attitude then when she walked in. Not surprisingly, she didn't leave with any shoes.

Another associate was at a waffle house with a friend and they ran into Da Brat, who was with a friend of hers. While the associate wasn't impressed, their friend was, which led them to approach Da Brat, asking for a picture. Da Brat claimed that they don't take pictures on personal time. Da Brat's friend tried to get them to reconsider, while Da Brat stood by their decision. The associate's friend slightly went off on Da Brat, and walked away no longer a fan of theirs lol

R320 these are second or third hand tabloid stories. It's interesting that someone posted saying J-Lo frequents a store their sister works at and is nice and friendly, because that's what I usually hear too, from people who have *actually* met her. She comes off as moody and snippy and a bit whiny sometimes in documentaries, but I don't think I've ever seen anything of her that made me think she was a bad or a cruel person. She seems very guarded and full of herself but relatively well intentioned and good hearted. I've seen her in person a few times and she didn't give off bad vibes the way some people do.

Shut the fuck up. She was on job duty. She was being paid to work, not seek autographs. And if she didn't "have much of a savings account built up" then she should have thought of her bank account and keeping her job when she purposefully and willfully went to the room to seek an autograph on work time. She was breaching protocol and would have been aware that this kind of behaviour has repercussions. She was also using her position at work to gain access to J-Lo. That's a conflict of interest which is a no-no in pretty much every job. I work at a film festival and we are not allowed to ask for autographs. And yes, there is a risk of dismissal if we are caught doing it. Do your fucking job.

I don't believe the maid thing even happened, but the people defending the maid are ridiculous. It doesn't matter how much you're paid, you don't bother people who are trying to relax in their hotel room. I've worked in hotels and one of the first things we were told was not to bother famous people. They are also human beings and they deserve to enjoy their downtime like anyone else, without entitled fans disturbing them or even potentially making them feel unsafe.

R365 I meant more the general culture of entitlement to celebrities. People feel entitled to their time, their attention, no matter where or when, no matter what they might be doing. When celebrities aren't working, they're regular people. They have the right to expect to be left alone without being called mean or a cunt. If you can't relax in your own hotel suite, when can you?

by Anonymousreply 366March 23, 2023 11:17 AM

But by that logic, R366, shouldn't you be able to be anywhere when you're off the clock without interruption? After I posted R365, I got thinking is it really so different than seeing a celebrity on the street?

Look at all the stories on both threads. Most people feel perfectly entitled to interrupt a celebrity in public to gush. But because they are saying something nice and (believe they are) only doing it briefly, they feel entitled. (When for all we know it's a terrible moment.) What's the difference here... a door? Because the celebrity had to pass from a private space to a public space they're suddenly free game because they're recognizable? Look at the Jamie Lee Curtis reaction. She... stated her boundaries and she's judged as terrible. It's so inconsistent. The maid should be ground up and jobless because she knocked at the door but JLC, purely as an example, is a total bitch for closing one. Makes no sense.

I don't think the problem is with them, it's with the fans. On the offence scale: going to their house 10/10; going to their hotel room less outta/10; going up to them on the street 1/10. But it's all the same offence.

by Anonymousreply 367March 23, 2023 11:30 AM

R367, celebrities travel so often that for them, a hotel often IS home. It's their place to relax and feel safe and not have to be "on." Ringing a bell to ask for an autograph is akin to going up to the door of their house. Totally stalkerish, entitled behavior.

I also don't think it's acceptable to bother celebrities in public, but I think doing it when they're trying to rest in essentially their "home" is exceptionally shitty.

The whole stan culture thing is just weird. Celebrities don't give a fuck whether or not you're a fan. They don't want to hear that their music changed your life when they're trying to pick their kids up from school or grab something at a pharmacy. They don't care. They're people trying to go about their lives like everyone else.

I have worked in PR in Hollywood for 24 years and I can tell you this. Starting out, that first time someone recognizes you out in public is a rush.

Usually, these are people who have been told all their lives they will be a star and a lot of times, nepo babies. Kids who grew up with their mom or dad going through it. The ones who are truly appreciative are the ones who came from nothing and got a break. Dolly Parton is the perfect example of this.

I think I told this before, so apologies in advance, but I had a roommate who used to drive for a series of TV shows recorded in NYC in the 1980s including Letterman and SNL.

He said that Paul Shaffer was hands-down the nastiest piece of work he ever had to work for - whiny, always late for pick-up, always trying to funny with "cutting remarks".

Letterman was cold and quiet to the point of weirdness. He was also unpleasant to the people he traveled with, regardless of who they were.

He drove RDJ to the airport several times during his time with SNL. RDJ started out as ebullient and talkative and then got quieter and quieter as the weeks went on. The last trip he burst into tears just as they reached the airport, choked out "sorry" and staggered out of the car.

His most nervous moment was ferrying Lauren Bacall and Jodie Foster to an awards show from some pre-event reception. He kept on imagining Lauren whipping out a pot of instant coffee and insisting to Jodie that it had flavah and was afraid he'd start laughing. But the trip passed without incident.

His weirdest assignment was driving a couple of soap opera actresses around while they screamed insults at each other - it was a scene from the show and they hired him to drive as they were supposed to be stuck in traffic during their on-screen fight. He said they were both very nice and tipped well for the work but his ears were ringing for days.

Years ago, I had a neighbor who was a 'lighting tech' (I think he called himself 'the main lighting architect') for major concerts in the Northeast. His territory included Madison Square Garden, Foxwoods Casino, Mohegan Sun Casino, TD Garden Boston. This was back in the early - mid 2000s.

I recall him telling me that the female artists were worst than the male artists, by far. The female artists who stood out to him for their kindness to him and his crew included Olivia Newton-John, Barbra Streisand, Donna Summer and Cher. He mentioned all three ladies were wonderful to work with, and his crew loved them as well. He called each woman a professional and let the lighting crew do their job (though he did say Streisand did work more closely with them, and she really knew her stuff and what lighting /hues worked best with her). I also recall him saying he wished every artist he worked with could be like Donna Summer and ONJ - both polite and engaging with all. (He firmly judged a star on how they treated his 'crew' more than they treated him).

The women he thought were the worst back then included Madonna, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross and Bette Midler. These are the women who were impossible to schedule for for 'light testing' before the show, who were demanding, pushy and rude. When I asked him who he thought was 'the worst' he said it had to be Whitney - no one in the industry wanted to work with her.

Of the guys, he said Bruce Springsteen was the best. One of the nicest / kindest men in the business. Took care of his crew (the same way Summer and ONJ did). The only two he singled out as being 'prima donnas' were Billy Joel and Prince.

It doesn’t surprise me that Streisand with her background in legit theater would be knowledgable about lighting and aware of the hazards of pissing off the people responsible for making her look good during a live show.

Christmas Eve in a very busy, very popular restaurant. I'm waiting on the entire Gyllenhaal family including the uber-bitch mother of the clan and her equally narcissistic daughter Maggie. Jake is there with a "friend" and Maggie's husband Peter is also in attendance with their baby. The baby is the nicest one in the entire group. At one point, as we're serving food, I see Peter changing the baby's diaper on the banquette. It's done very surreptitiously so other diners can't see. We of the waitstaff do notice the stink. A couple of hours go by, we're super slammed, and the family gets up and leaves. We rush over to clear and reset the table, and lo and behold, under the table are two dirty, stinking diapers filled the brim. Maggie and her gay husband never came back to the restaurant after that night. They were asked not to.

industry... comedic multi-talents (i.e. as much writers, producers, as actors) tend to be the biggest assholes and cunts. . . lost somewhere between severe autism and addiction, and not keen on boundaries, more inclined to say fuck-it to execs and go do their own thing; success or fail.

Jennifer Saunders tops anything that could be said about Cybill Shepherd or Chevy Chase, even. She's more akin to Chevy in having a low tolerance for her audiences. . . while playing out to fuzzy accounting practices like Shepherd with productions she's in control of . But generally, just the sort of person upon meeting it reveals exactly why so many people hate her when they first meet her. Just extremely anal. . . and ever so obnoxious about it.. She tends to be paranoid that everyone is like her (cutthroat, backstabbing, always looking for someone to use) while at the same time, not believing anyone could do it better.

Comedy seems to bring out the worst in everyone that's involved in it. Pure performers aren't so bad, they're usually at the pathetic end... the comedic relief type characters. That is until they become hasbeens.

No entourage, no bodyguards, just her. She had sunglasses on, knew I knew who was, and said "what's up" and smiled (I later found out she was in a pitch meeting for a movie, never found out which one or what it was). I thought when is the next time I will get to talk to Madonna, so I just said "I'm from Detroit too," and smiled. She said "Oh yeah? Where from? I told her Allen Park and she smiled. "So you really are from Detroit and not just bullshitting me," she said. I laughed guessing a lot of people try that and never know the areas to say. She asked me what I did, told her, She asked me if I knew hers, Liz Rosenberg,' which I did by name only never worked with her. She was pretty cool and seem interested in my responses. We hit the lobby she smiled I as let her go first and said see ya. Like a normal human. I am sure there are plenty of Madonna is a cunt stories but this one time at least she was nice to nobody me.

A-Rod's ex was born into wealth and then had an easy ride marrying him and getting child support. I can imagine Jennifer being resentful as hell. I think it was the same reason she had issues with Shakira when they did the Superbowl together - Shakira was also born into wealth and had an easy ride to fame while Jennifer got thrown out of the house after she turned 18 and was homeless for some time, doing random music videos and gigs in sketchy clubs.

Ann Jillian. A healthcare nonprofit in my city contracted with her to be the featured speaker at their annual fundraiser.

Contract terms included doing pre-event media interviews scheduled by the nonprofit in coordination with her manager’s assistant. Several interviews were on the calendar.

Imagine the nonprofit’s surprise when her husband, who was also her manager, which may explain the current state of her career, started to verbally berate and threaten the nonprofit’s volunteer, but very experienced, rep who was donating their services and booked the interviews.

Regarding the contractually obligated morning show interviews, when calls were placed to her number prior to the first live interview, he started screaming at staff “you don’t wake the star! You don’t wake the star! This is ANN JILLIAN!” All of this was followed by threats of coming to this city to physically assault the person on the other end of the phone.

The rep put the call on speakerphone. Witnesses to the phone call were concerned not only for the volunteer’s safety but for Ms. Jillian’s personal safety, he was that volatile.

The kicker? Ms. Jillian was paid $15,000 to deliver a speech about her life experiences and encourage women to get mammograms. BUT, the speech she was reading from was from an event conducted four years prior, which had her age woven throughout. She would read a sentence with that age mention and say, “guess I should have updated this” or “I’m way older now.” For $15,000 plus airfare, lodging, meals, car service and extras she couldn’t even be bothered to read the speech beforehand or prepare.

The karma? Ms. Jillian and her charming husband had sent 8x10 glossies (converted to digital files for them, which they were shocked at) that they insisted be the ones used in the media and event promotions. The photo — at their direction — was displayed prominently throughout the venue. Imagine her surprise when she walked up to the podium with the CEO, stood next to her, was introduced and received absolutely no welcome applause. Everyone in the room was dead quiet. Bless her heart, the charming woman had gained so much weight she bore absolutely no resemblance to the woman whose picture was plastered around the room. “No really, I’m Ann Jillian,” was what brought people in the room out of their stupor.

It was a delicious moment for everyone who had been dealing with this has-been and her unhinged spouse/manager.

R475 I wasn't excusing it, I was explaining it. I think Lopez has a specific complex about people, especially women, she deems privileged and/or gold diggers. Of course she shouldn't have done that. It's something to work out in therapy, not take out on other people.

I'd say she's probably still on her best behavior with Garner, though. It's in her interests for the stepkids to like her.

After seeing the footage of Carolyn fighting with John in public, I always wondered if some domestic dispute went down on the plane. Maybe she attacked him in the cockpit.

Or maybe he was just like "fuck it Carolyn, you want to crash the plane? Let's crash the plane" and he lost control.

She shot me a cold-ass look and goes "I am talking to him." My friend said it was a small crowd and they should be pretty chill, it was beer-bust night. She tried to make a joke, "Well we like beer and we have busts!" and again my mouth worked on its own. "well one of you does," and the redhead laughed. Rosie looked at me and said, "I don't like you." This was before the Rosie O show. Cut to a few years later and her bookers are calling me for guests.

Now she's best known for Romy & Michelle. Personally, I think that film was her career's death knell more than anything else but my opinion matters none. It wasn't a stretch of his talents and he often confused his roles with life, it gave him an inflated local flavor. A heightened celebrity in a handful of neighborhoods... while she was more soho than lower manhattan (or lsay more type-a socialite than jersey shore or a mafioso wannabe). and that was part of the problem with her attitude... I kept thinking snob wouldn't be the right word for it because of it's association with class, from what I've heard, she would dismiss most reactions as just being a New Yorker. She's more transparent now about being a social climber, particularly with the other celebs she aligns with... other even more obnoxious nepobabies.

I was abused as a child, and seriously. I would never, with or without the years of therapy I navigated to lead my own life, expect anyone to "warm" to me over my unfortunate past. In fact, the kind of cunt who would think that way mistakes "compassion" with "sick greedy need," and no one wants that kind of wreck marauding through the countryside self-justifying such a badly patched psyche.

He wasn't cunty to me in my encounter, but was definitely off-putting weird with a cunty reputation that preceded him. All Chicago based:

The "alleged" rapist William K. Smith had my friend's boyfriend barista fired from Seattle's Best Coffee on Oakdale & Broadway about '98 or so for saying "Oh, wow. You look like WKS" while never saying or alluding to the charges.. Gone before 9.

Several years later, I was visiting a friend on Oakdale in a Plus Four right next to WKS's white brick townhouse. We were walking my friend's pug and came upon him and his small, blonde female cousin. He was tall, lumbering, blubbery for his frame, and *painfully* awkward. He could not maintain eye contact or even engage in small talk over a pooch. The cousin was outgoing and friendly, but not effusive or weird. He was just kind of black-eyed, weird and reticent if you could manage some eye contact for a second. He couldn't/wouldn't read a cue if it came up and put a hole between his eyes.

Creepy beyond belief and he was a physician who saw patients.

There were also stories of how he treated fraus that setup conventions specifically for him and their fandom of his tv character, which the major one was his refusal to sign any photos from The Partridge Family while also on top of exuberant appearance fees for a hasbeen, unbeknownst to planners, charging like 50 bucks per signing. Which they were willing to cop to the charge if he'd sign the damn photos but he threw a tantrum and he walked out.

I worked at one of the Kim's Video stores in the East Village in the early 90s while in college. We had a lot of celeb customers, and most were fine to deal with. You just treated them like everyone else and pretended you didn't recognize them (or didn't care, which I didn't) and sent them on their way.

The one exception was Michael Musto, who was a massively unpleasant cunt. He acted like he was doing us a favor by patronizing the store and always gave us withering looks when he approached the counter as if to say- Don't you DARE recognize me! Like any of us cared. He was a hideous troll even back then. And all I ever saw him rent was gay porn.

Our particular store was a strange shape, as it was in an apartment building. The storefront was on St. Mark's, but the entrance to the apartment building was on 2nd Ave. The store itself was on the 2nd floor. The store kind of wrapped around in a very long semi-circle so that you could not see the other side of it if you were at the counter. The porn section was all the way around the corner in the back (and was gigantic).

One time Musto came in to return some movies with his usual sour puss, dismissive attitude. I took his films from him and then yelled to my colleague who was headed towards the back- Hang on, I just got two gay porns returned. Take them back for me. That withered raisin face looked about ready to explode.

Tim Robbin was so qt. Only when he was young and nerdee, thoughs.

by Anonymousreply 569March 26, 2023 6:24 PM

Wasn't Robbins known for asking young playwrights to dinner, fawning over them, and asking about their works? And then pretended the bill wasn't his until the young, embarrassed writer obligingly picked it up, even though invited by Robbins?

Major GOP shit pretending to be a Democrat.

Partner had to interview Elvis Costello for a major outlet.

He asked Elvis a seemingly benign question and Elvis lost his shit. He ripped off his mic and threw it at his interviewer and that was the end of things.

It was a soft piece. Partner wasn’t trying to grill him or put him on the defensive in any way. Elvis’s reaction left him a bit shaken. He’s interviewed lots of major newsmakers and it was bizarre.

He also interviewed and hated Sarah Ferguson. She was in the midst of a ton of promotional stuff. His camera crew followed her around as she made appearances for Weight Watchers, Royal Doulton (she signed plates people bought), etc. When they sat down, he asked her about her evolution into a pitchwoman of sorts and she immediately went ice cold. “Excuse me?!” And it was downhill from there. But, I mean, she was a fucking pitchwoman! She was selling herself to whatever brands would pay her rate. He tried to countered, “Well, what would you call it?” She didn’t thaw, or give a good answer.

And what interview subjects need to realize is turning against your interviewer is rarely smart. They get to edit the piece together and you’ve now given them filmed demonstrations of shitty behavior.

I met Bob Denver at a convenience store in St. Pete Fl around 1984 . He was appearing in some dinner theater and he still had stage make up on. I was a little tipsy ,so when I realized who he was I screamed "OMG! Its Gilligan! " . He seemed a little irked but then he started talking to us and he was cool as shit. When I apologized for calling him Gilligan he said he really didnt mind but he had heard it about 80 million times . He was buying wine,and seemed a little stoned. I had his autograph for years after but lost it somewhere along the way.

I don't believe the Lauren Hutton story at all. I was working the ticket booth at a small theater in Hollywood (The Complex) and she sat next to me and we had a great conversation. She also went into the bookstore that my husband worked at quite often and sought him out every time she went back.

A bit of shoving to get their 'good side'.

[quote] E! News correspondent Giuliana Rancic: "I think she [Ariana Grande] does have a little bit of a diva thing going on," the TV host revealed. "I remember, I think it was at the AMAs, she came up on the platform, and normally I stand on this side [her left side] to the camera. I had to fight 13 years to get this side to the camera, it's my good side, but I fought 13 years for this, OK? Little Ariana comes over, I feel like 'bing,' elbow in my side, I'm like, 'What's going on?' And they push me to the other side."

I've posted in two threads over the years about how sad, bitter, and nasty Judy Collins was to me in an art gallery in London in the mid-nineties. After others have informed me of her troubles with drink over the years, it made more sense to me how she could be so very toxic and cruel. I do believe she was indeed a bit squiffy at the time.

I did not make a big to-do about recognising her, in fact, I simply was as pleasant and friendly as I would normally be. I wasn't even certain it WAS Judy Collins until she handed me her credit card... perhaps that was my mistake?

When I told her I loved her music, she said I was too young to be a fan. I was born in the sixties, and mentioned I had fond memories of hearing her music throughout my life. My mum listened to her all the time when I was young. She said "your parents were fans". No graciousness whatsoever on her part. She did spend a great deal of money, which I was grateful for, but she insulted me more than a few times, and I honestly was completely crestfallen. Her music meant a lot to me. I thought she was genuinely cool as well up until our meeting.

What stuck in my mind the most was how she was pestering someone on her mobile to provide her with the addresses to which her gift purchases were to be shipped. Cantankerous would be a good word. I can no longer take pleasure in her music. Sad.

Kathy Griffin about Jon Hamm:

[quote]"You'll never convince me to like Jon Hamm," Griffin wrote in 2016, before recounting an alleged tale of an ill-fated dinner party (via Us Weekly). "Hammy showed up. ... He even said to me, 'What are you doing here?' I said ... 'What are you doing here?'" If you're not cringing yet, she explained that while talking to Jack Nicholson later on, an intoxicated Hamm reportedly started whispering in her ear: "First it was, 'You know your Emmy isn't a real Emmy' ... then he whispered, 'You're so o-o-o-old.'"

I don't believe that story for a minute. As if Jon Hamm would know who Kathy Griffin was.

She told the story on Stern and I believe every word of it. She said he's one of those hot people who's really mean but thinks he's funny. Pretty common, I've found.

Hamm's college stories only reaffirm that he is an asshole. I believe Griffin. You know Hamm would look down on her if she was attending a party he was at.

R581 he is an English comic, $imon A$tel. (I just know he googles himself and I refuse to give him any satisfaction in adding to his internet interest score). He and his boyfriend come in to where I'm shop bottoming, and I approach them to get things started and see if I can help them. The boyfriend is lovely, and the cunt gives me his best withering up and look. It was eye-rollingly cunty. I sent a telepathic message to the boyfriend 'you can do much better than him'.

I'm not surprised, R592. Was this when he was somewhat better-known (i.e. while he was on Never Mind the Buzzcocks)?

Re.: R584 - no-one was watching that show for Giuliana Rancic. I barely know a thing about Ariana Grande but I know that she takes precedence over Giuliana Rancic.

Alice Waters…

She was at the UNION Sq. farmer’s market, for what looked like a simple meet and greet. I had just been out to Berkeley a month earlier…and visited CP for dinner. As I walked from a vendor’s stand and saw her in front of me, I started to mention my recent trip out west. She looked st me and just said: “are you buying the book?” I said no, just a hello. Without saying anything else, she just turned her back to ignore me. 🤑
