Constance Wu isn’t taking it anymore. She’s denying the latest in a seemingly series of negative reports characterizing her as a diva.
The latest came from Page Six which reported that she insisted that she get top billing over Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B for her upcoming movie, Hustlers.
The studio has reportedly contacted media outlets to make sure that happens.
“She’s a total piece of work. She thinks it’s OK to treat people badly and say out loud whatever comes to her,” Page Six quoted an anonymous source as saying.
Wu is firing back through a statement from her publicist to ET.
“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,” her rep says in a statement to ET. “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.”
The negative reports followed Wu’s ill-timed profanity-laced tweets in which she expressed anger at the renewal of season six of Fresh Off the Boat. She later apologized to her fans and fellow cast mates, saying the production of season six would prevent her from taking a project she was really passionate about.
Hustlers is due out September 13.
