More bad press for Constance Wu. Just after emerging from allegations that she was "ungrateful" after grumbling on Twitter (she tweeted "F–king hell … Ugh. F–k") after she learned that her ABC show Fresh Off the Boat was renewed, Wu's reps are putting out new fires. Page Six is reporting that Wu demanded top billing in stories about the film she stars in with bigger names Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B.
Her reps allegedly demanded that Wu is listed as star of the stripper film Hustlers, which also features Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart and Lizzo.
Other sources tell Page Six that in addition to displaying "diva" behavior post-shoot, she was no picnic on-set either.
They spilled: "She wouldn't agree to do anything," adding "She's a total piece of work. She thinks it's OK to treat people badly and say out loud whatever comes to her."
Her reps immediately pushed back against the report that she was demanding top billing, telling Us Weekly: "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. While Constance's character in Hustlers is the key protagonist, any reporting that implies or indicates that she demanded or directed this recently reported initiative is patently untrue and a clear manipulation of facts. She has always been and remains a proud supporter of all her fellow castmates inclusion in the celebration of this film and telling of this story."
