One of the great things about the internet is that everyone wants to contribute gossip. Last week we got the great Ry Ry hissy fit from Ryan Reynolds in Boston, and this week we get Jake the Diva in South Carolina.
On Wednesday Jake was filming a scene in the South Carolina State House. This was going to be one day of filming. Had to get done, because the producers had not made any arrangements for any other days inside the building. Everyone was on their very best behavior and knew they would have only one chance. But someone forgot to tell Jake.
“He was complaining that the room was too small, complaining about the temperature, complaining about his chair,” our source says. “It was like watching a two-year old have a meltdown every five minutes.”
He complained so long, and so often that the crew was forced to shut down early, and the producers had to arrange for an extra day of filming. I'm just guessing that Jake has maybe found some southern loving and just wants to do everything in his power to stay a little longer. To be fair to Jake, the director of the film is the same guy who directed I Heart Huckabees and caused Lily Tomlin to almost kill herself. Word has it that James Caan who was also starring in this film quit after being abused by the director.
On the other hand, the person you would think would be more diva has actually been a joy. Jessica Biel has talked to anyone and everyone. She has posed for hundreds and hundreds of photos and even was seen turning cartwheels on the grounds of the State House. It seems that everyone in the town has fallen in love with Jessica Biel. And why not? She has her dog with her and her “trainer” and best of all, no Justin.
