[ad_1]

Though celebrities arguably live fancier and more exciting lives, there’s one thing that they have in common with everyone else—being respectful, polite, and easy to work with is highly valued in Hollywood just as much as everywhere else. 

Redditor u/TheG00DESTBoi sparked a discussion after asking people who have worked on movie sets about the most difficult and entitled stars they’ve claimed to have met. The responses were eye-opening and we’ve collected the most shocking ones to share with you. It just goes to show how much an actor’s behavior behind the scenes can affect their reputation, even years down the line.

Bored Panda reached out to entertainment, pop culture, and lifestyle expert Mike Sington, who’s known as Hollywood’s Ultimate Insider, to hear his thoughts on how actors can make themselves easy and pleasant to work with. Be sure to check out his insights as you scroll down.

Entertainment expert Mike, from LA, was kind enough to share his insights on what stars should keep in mind if they want to leave a good impression on those they work with and create a positive atmosphere in the workplace.

For one, maintaining a high level of professionalism on or off set, as well as having a strong work ethic, is vital. “Arrive on time, be prepared, and respect your colleagues’ time and effort,” Mike told Bored Panda. “Show dedication to your craft by putting in the necessary effort and taking your work seriously. Continuously strive to improve your skills and deliver your best performance.”

It also helps if the talent embraces collaboration with their colleagues, from the director and their fellow actors to the entire production team. The celebrity expert suggests that the actors should be open to feedback and be willing to adapt to the needs of the project. The more flexible you are, the better. “Your ability to roll with the punches can be invaluable.”

AnonTvPerson added:
Can confirm. He has this thing where he won’t talk to anyone bar the most senior crew. He treats everyone else like cr*p. Once witnessed him have a meltdown because the script supervisor (who’s job is partly to ensure continuity and keep dialogue true to script) spoke to him directly when the Director was occupied (script supervisors normally filter issues via the director). He thinks he’s above everyone.
Just can’t compute people like that – we all started somewhere. Just be nice to people, particularly when they’re working hard to make you look good.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members I used to work in the industry for a while. Asked some colleagues about the worst people they’ve worked with. More than one said Steven Segal was a grade A douchbag.

Celebrities should strive to keep open lines of communication with their coworkers. If they have any ideas or concerns, it’s important to voice them constructively. Meanwhile, it’s also essential to actively listen to others’ perspectives, too.

Directors and production teams also value stars who can keep their ego in check. “Remember that the success of a project depends on the collective effort of the entire team, not just one individual,” entertainment expert Mike reiterated to Bored Panda.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members I used to work in the film and TV industry… Tyra Banks legitimately will fire some people if they look her in the eye when passing in the hallway, mostly interns. Ugh.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Not me and not on a set but my mom was a cashier at a famous local inn and a number of celebrities have visited. Billy Ray Cyrus, Michael Jackson, etc. One day Bill Cosby had showed up and asked for a specific cup of coffee with a bunch of weird s**t in it. Long story short, my mom politely said we don’t have that, got yelled at, and was basically forced TO GO BUY HIS COFFEE FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE just so management looks good.

On top of that, you have to remember that many of the details related to your work projects probably shouldn’t be revealed in public or to anyone privately. The expert pointed out just how important it is to respect the confidentiality of the scripts, and the info related to the production. “Avoid sharing spoilers or behind-the-scenes details without permission,” he added.

But above everything is respect. “Treat everyone on set with respect and kindness, regardless of their role. A positive and respectful attitude can go a long way in creating a harmonious working environment,” Mike said, adding that showing gratitude to the people who support you in your career goes a long way. It’s also not only about you: “Recognize the contributions of the crew and fellow actors to the project’s success,” he noted.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Faye Dunaway, Faye Dunaway… and I cannot stress this enough… FAYE DUNAWAY. I’ve had dealings with her personally and can vouch for her entitledness, and nastiness, but my friend who works on movie sets has horror stories.

Extremely demanding, and also picky. She brings her scales with her everywhere and will make anyone catering weigh it up in front of her. She has a no eye contact rule, which must never be disobeyed, and she also yells and screams when things do not go her way.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members I have a story I’m telling second hand. This was in a hotel, not a movie set, so sorry for breaking the rules. Apparently Sylvester Stallone had been angering the cleaning staff because he was leaving [turds] in the shower. When the manager complained to his “people” about this behavior, his publicist explained that they had to understand that Mr. Stallone was a very busy man.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Not that it’s any surprise to anyone, but Michael Cera is a huge f*****g a*****e.

I watched so many young musicians come up to him during the Sex Bob-omb tour come up to him to talk about music or gush about how he inspired them, only for him to either brush them off completely, ask them why they’re talking to him, or just have security come take them away.

Total d**k.

It’s absolute common sense, but it’s essential to treat others like you’d want to be treated. The Golden Rule doesn’t go out of fashion, after all. However, common sense isn’t as common as you’d think, even among the _crème de la crème_ of Hollywood.

To put it bluntly, no matter how skilled and talented you are, if you treat others like garbage, eventually, nobody will want to work with you. What good is talent if you don’t have the soft skills to back it up with? ‘Regular’ movie and TV industry employees deserve to be treated with the same dignity and respect that celebrities would offer other stars.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members My moms friend did security for concerts, she always told us about how nice the bands were BUT Adele was a nightmare, her fans started to line up before her concert outside of the Stadium and Adele REFUSED to do sound check because she didn’t want anyone to hear her for “FREE” and you couldn’t look at her when she spoke to you.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members I got hired in for 4 days for a Netflix original film and Chris Pine was a massive douchebag. All the crew were completely fed up with him

beardy_col , Gage Skidmore Report

You won’t have a quality movie without a large team of dedicated, hard-working people. A star can’t do a hundred jobs at once—even they need support. Which you won’t get if you’re constantly throwing your weight around, showing off how much more important you are than everyone else. You need to stay grounded even when the entire world is chanting your name. And being optimistic about the project when things get tough can only help.

Now that’s not to say that all celebs are nasty and mean. That’s far from the case! There are plenty of A-listers, from Keanu Reeves and Tom Hanks to Paul Rudd and Dwayne Johnson, who are an utter delight to be around. What you see is what you get: smiles, charisma, and genuine care. 

But it’s not like these beloved actors are perfect either. Everyone has a bad day once in a while. The stress of starring in projects that cost hundreds of millions of dollars can really get to you. Even Hanks, many people’s icon and Hollywood’s sweetheart, has admitted to this.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Back in my days of doing Background work, I specifically remember on the set of “Bones” where they had very specific rules about not looking David Boreanaz in the eye and to keep a distance from him. You would hear stories about extras who would just walk by him, look up and smile, and then they would immediately get fired and sent home.

No other set I worked on had that strict rules about their lead talent.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Not a movie set but has to do with entitled actors. I waited on Kirsten Dunst at Uma Thurman’s sister engagement party out in the Hamptons. I went from having a celebrity crush on her to not being able to stand her by the end of the night. She ran out of cigarettes at one point and made a huge ordeal over the fact that when she asked staff for one no one had her brand (yellow american spirits). To be fair she was drunk as hell at this point. She demanded that someone go out and get her her cigarettes, and my manager made me oblige. I had to leave my entire section for about an hour to go on some crazy hunt during the peak of summer in the Hamptons to find her her yellow american spirits. After I finally went to give them to her she didn’t say thank you or even make eye contact. She just reached out, took them out of my hands and pretended like I didn’t exist.

Uma Thurman on the other hand was a delight. Very polite and respectful.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Lisa Kudrow was the biggest surprise to me. She was a stone cold b***h when I’d see her at work (not on a film set, but she’d come in to a spa I worked at), very demanding, very rude, very curt, and snappy like an angry chihuahua. She seemed really stressed and tired. I totally expected more from Phoebe tbh.

“Not everybody is at their best every single day on a motion picture set. I’ve had tough days trying to be a professional when my life has been falling apart in more ways than one and the requirement for me that day is to be funny, charming, and loving— and it’s the last way I feel,” he told the BBC in an interview.

What Hanks does pride himself on is his punctuality. “What cannot occur on a motion picture is that someone cannot monkey around with the timing or the length of the shoot or the budget. That is a cardinal sin in the motion picture business. You will be amazed at how many people know that they can get away with it, and are told they can get away with it, because they are carrying the movie on their shoulders,” the actor opened up to the BBC.

In his new book, ‘The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece,’ Hanks referred to some actors who are “cry-babies, psychological train wrecks, on-the-wagon alcoholics, off-the-wagon addicts… and more than a couple of feuds between the Talent.”

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members From a friend who’s a movie director:

Daniel Radcliffe – really down-to-earth and genuinely nice guy

Michelle Williams – incredibly difficult to work with, once made them reshoot the scene four times because “her hands looked ugly”

Russell Crowe – super arrogant and self-important

Keira Knightley – nice and quite down-to-earth but rather demanding

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members If you want to know the most entitled person I had to deal with, it was hands down Michael Bay. He is an a**hole of the first order and anyone associated with him (his bodyguard/assistants), his two huge-ass dogs, and some of his other staff are all straight-up entitled jerks.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Jeremy Renner is on top of a frozen mountain at night and demands chili with no specifications. The crafty then sends the chili with a cart of topping options.

Edit: It takes at least twenty minutes to get to the top of the mountain, no matter what. When it arrives, Renner chews out the crafty assistant, saying he expected chili in five minutes. The crafty assistant fires back at him, telling him nobody’s getting anything from basecamp to the top of this mountain in five minutes without a helicopter. The crafty assistant is banned from talking to or looking at Renner for the rest of the shoot.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members I was a production assistant back in 2004–05, and I noticed mainly European actors were very humble and low maintenance, and it was US talent that was the opposite (with exceptions of course). On the films I worked on, Scarlett Johansson was very high maintenance. It was her first tentpole film, and I think it went to her head a little bit. She kept demanding extra things left and right, and it was a miserable experience for most of the PAs on set.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Not an actor but a director, David Fincher. He is a a pain to work with and he is beyond eccentric. Did some work as an audio PA (production assistant) for awhile. If anyone wore anything red on his set they were fired on the spot.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members A friend of mine from college asked her PA sister this same question, then in turn my friend told our group. Friend’s sister told her that Edward Norton was the biggest, whiniest baby she’d ever had to deal with and she would turn down a job in the future if she found out she’d have to work with him. Again, this is fourth hand, but I guess he would throw tantrums at least daily over nothing.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members My BF works in the movie studios (and concerts) where we live and has done small to major movies and met some pretty big movies stars because of it – Johnny Depp, Jason Mamoa, Chris Hemsworth, Matt Damon etc etc

The worst person hes ever had to deal with was Blake Lively. Said she was the most entitled, snobby and rude person to deal with threw tantrums on set and she treated literally every single person like a POS except for the director. Said if theres another movie and shes in it, he will refuse. Other than her, every other star hes dealt with hes said are pretty easy going, chilled out and will talk to literally anyone if you dont make a huge fuss about them.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Brian Callen (most famous from Mad TV) is a major douche bag. He had a meltdown and screamed at everyone because a PA didn’t get his coffee fast enough. He gave me dirty looks during filming and I couldn’t tell if he was into me or was pissed at me but it made me uncomfortable.

28 Of The Most Entitled Actors Ever, According To Movie Crew Members Martin Kove. (Kreese, in the original Karate Kid).

PA had to pick him up at 9am sharp, he stared at the kid through a locked glass door for an hour laughing and reading the newspaper. Fully dressed, ready to go, laughing as the PA’s supervisor screamed audibly at the kid through a walkie to get him to set. The PA was in tears when he finally came out, terrified he had already lost his job.

Same PA was assigned to take him home after the shoot. Kove says he wants to go to McDonald’s on the way back, apologizes. Kid says production didn’t give him any money. Kove says, “I’m buying. Sorry about this morning. I don’t know what got into me. Go ahead. Order whatever you want.” PA’s so pissed, he says he wants nothing. Kove convinces him to get something. “Get a cookie. At least a cookie. My treat,” says Kove. PA says, “Alright, fine. I’ll take a cookie.” Kove buys the cookie at the drive through, gets nothing for himself.

As they pull away, Kove eats the cookie while staring at the PA in the rear view mirror the entire way back to the hotel.
