After reading my post about Luke Wilson, my father's favorite ex-wife of mine, Carli, sent me an e-mail about her own experiences with Luke. According to her, the only bad behavior Luke is guilty of is not using the phone company he should be using.
You know, Enty, sometimes when I tire of spending your money I have to come up with other ways to amuse myself. One such way is by visiting my actor friends on sets and trying to score with the director. While this hasn’t worked in my favor yet, (as you would know given the Amex bills you’re still receiving) I happen to have a bit of insider info on the Luke Wilson report today. I was on one of those AT&T sets once and calling Luke’s behavior on said set diva-ish would be as likely as me trying to hit on a production assistant. He was very quiet and kept to himself, sure, but not in a rude, stay away from me, nobody better look me in the kind of way, in just a way a shy reserved guy would. He followed directions, was talking to the kids in the spot on set, and just seemed like any other actor that was making the normal day rate instead of the oodles of money AT&T was paying him. Of course, this could just be him behaving himself while the client was around so I got the insider scoop from my friend who was in the commercial with him. My friend said that while they were in make up Luke was very nice, chatty, and showing my friend some pictures he had on his phone. He joked about how he may never make another movie again because the commercials were paying him so well. His only “diva” behavior? He had a T-Mobile phone instead of AT&T (when a celeb endorses a product as high profile as AT&T, a car, a booze, etc. the client often makes him sign a contract saying he will only use their product in public). Though having tried to launch my get rich quick phone sex line using my iphone and failing miserably thanks to dropped calls every 30 seconds, I don’t blame him for that!! Luke can ring my (non AT&T supplied) bell any time!!
