Tim Gunn on Taylor Momsen: ‘What a Diva!’
“What a diva! She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself ‘why are we all being held hostage by this brat?'”
Momsen’s biggest transgression, as far as Gunn is concerned? Her incessant BlackBerry use, which he opines might be affecting her ability to do important actress stuff such as remembering her lines and getting along with the crew:
“I’d say, ‘You know young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you. Why are you acting like this show is a huge burden on you?’ She was on her phone during every break, I wanted to tell her, ‘If you weren’t on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff.’ I learned from teaching to stick with the topic, I don’t get involved in character appraisals. I’d just ask her, ‘Do you want to share with me why you’re always on your phone?’ At one point the director leaned in and whispered to me, ‘this is day in, day out, my life.’ She annoyed the entire crew.”
Perhaps the tart-tongued fashion guru should just be happy that Momsen busied herself with her BlackBerry on set, and not other electronic gadgets that she seems to be fond of.
What do you think? Is Momsen truly a terror to work with, or is Gunn pouring on the drama? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
