Despite predictable denials from PR flacks from all parties involved, rumor has it that Luke Wilson’s demands on the set of his latest movie, “Vacancy,” have been driving the crew and his co-star, Kate Beckinsale, crazy. From Page Six of the New York Post:
Both have fallen ill while shooting, but the real problem is they can’t stand each other. One on-set source said Wilson is often hung over and late to the set, and when he does show, insists on bragging about “all the girls he hooked up with over the weekend and how drunk he got.” The blond funnyman with the distinctive nose is also making diva-like demands. “He doesn’t want anyone on the set in his line of sight except the director,” said another spy – and that includes his leading lady Beckinsale. Wilson is “outwardly rude and awful to Kate,” the second source said. He often doesn’t show up for “reversal” shots, where he is off-camera but needs to be there for Beckinsale to relate to when she speaks. Instead, he sends a stand-in. “He is a total diva,” the second spy said.
Whether or not this is true, I’m not sure. But what I do know for a fact is that the adorable Luke Wilson of “Bottle Rocket” fame is starting to look like he was stung by bees, because that man is puffing up like a friggin’ blowfish these days. And frankly, I find that much more cause for concern.
