Mariah Carey’s Diva Antics Got Her Cut From New Will Ferrell Movie
Mariah Carey is WAY too old to be acting like this and her colleagues on a recent movie set are letting it be known.
Yesterday, Will Ferrell confirmed that his new film, The House, was SUPPOSED to feature a Mimi cameo, but that ain’t happening anymore.
According to TooFab, actor Cedric Yarbrough took to Facebook to set fire to Mariah’s diva attitude in a lengthy post describing her ugly behavior.
“Okay since Will Ferrell is talking, I’ma talk-ing,” he started his post. “Yeah, a real funny cameo was SUPPOSED to happen in the new film #TheHouse with the superstar Mariah Carey. But it was ruined by superstar Mariah Carey.”
“The film takes place in a suburban home but is made into a ‘Casino’. Why not have Mariah be an act in the casino? Funny idea,” Yarbrough’s post continued. “It’s rumored that she eventually showed up to set. This is true. But after waiting for her for 3-4 hours! While we waited the director & team had the idea of doing a stunt that Mariah’s body double would do now & bring in Mariah to match it. They do the stunt. All goes well. When Mariah finally showed up she refused to match the stunt. ‘Darling, I would never do it that way…’. I heard her say those exact words.”
“She then requested a large fan for her hair to be blown around and a camera that would be above her, basically a crane shot. This lady was unprofessional & borderline abusive to our director, who tried his best to appease her every wish,” he went on. “In the acting community, it’s not very good form to ‘tell’ on your fellow actors. They could be having a bad day, going through some personal things, & maybe Mariah was, I don’t know. But I do know that our crew didn’t deserve that, our director didn’t. Hell, I’d just come off shooting 10 HOURS on ‘Speechless’ just to get there and wait. This kind of behavior just isn’t cool.”
Cedric then said that this story wasn’t even the worst part, but he opted not to go into further details.
We’re sure some folks will give Mariah a pass, “that’s just Mariah being Mariah”, but apparently neither Cedric nor Will Ferrell are with the sh!ts.
