Scarlett Johansson never made it to the Cannes Film Festival premiere of her new movie on Saturday thanks to her excessive demands, Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper reports.
The Vicky Cristina Barcelona star reportedly insisted on having her own $7,800 US-a-day make-up artist and a room at a hotel 48 kilometres outside of Cannes, while director Woody Allen and co-stars Penelope Cruz and Rebecca Hall stayed in the city in order to be close to the premiere, the New York Daily News reports.
The movie’s studio reportedly balked at the demands and left Johansson, 23, behind in New York.
“Penelope and Rebecca were going to be working very hard and it wasn’t acceptable that Scarlett would be having to come in from that distance every day, most likely turning up late and it would have thrown schedules into a lot of confusion,” an executive connected with the film said.
The executive also said Allen, who has directed Johansson in three films, was “a little upset that she wasn’t being a team player.”
The film received a 10-minute standing ovation after the screening.
