Things aren’t looking so great for Constance Wu‘s reputation…
Following all the drama involving her social media “f**king hell” comment and apology afterÂ Fresh Off the Boat‘sÂ season six renewal, the Crazy Rich Asians actress is building herself up to be quite the difficult personality to work alongside. That’s if you believe new Page Six sources with eyes and ears inside the HustlersÂ and FOTB sets!
Pulling a fullÂ Katherine Heigl, are we now??
Insiders claim the behavior is so bad, she’s been dubbed “the most hated person” on her TV series! And Wu’s diva stance is evenÂ rivaling her film costars Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B!
The actor’s team is now apparently pleading with her to “find some humility” following ABC UpfrontsÂ after she was laughed at whenÂ Jimmy Kimmel joked:
“Only on ABC is getting your show picked up the worst thing that can happen to you.”
An ABC source divulged of her Fresh Off the Boat antics:
“Constance is the most hated person on set. She is rude to everybody, but most of all the crew.”
On set of the stripper flick, an additional source shared that while Constance plays nice with the other actors, she’s a nightmare behind the scenes:
“[Wu] is a pain in the f**king ass. She just wonâ€™t agree to do anything. She refuses to do interviews, she wonâ€™t have visitors on her sets. Itâ€™s like a clichÃ©. She is very talented â€” but all signs are pointing to a difficult diva.”
A third insider who has worked with the star backs up these claims:
“Sheâ€™s a total piece of work. She thinks itâ€™s OK to treat people badly and say out loud whatever comes to her. Sheâ€™s the new Katherine Heigl, and if sheâ€™s not careful, her movie career will go in the same direction â€” downhill.”
Rounding things out, a Crazy confidant shared the performer was “icy” to her costars — even rolling her eyes when Michelle Yeoh spoke at a promo event:
“[Wu] was standoffish and arrived to talk to reporters in a separate van from the cast, who came together. It was clear they didnâ€™t socialize .â€‰.â€‰. She was icy cold, leaving it to Henry Golding to charm everyone.”
Neither Constance or her reps have commented on these reports, BUT this does follow the rumor narrative we’ve been hearing. Following the Twitter backlash on Friday,Â journalist Yashar Ali revealed in a now-deleted tweet:
“Constance Wuâ€™s conduct today comes as no surprise to anyone who has worked with her in recent years. She has a reputation for being rude, petty, mean-spirited, and ungrateful.”
CRA costar Gemma Chan responded by actually “liking” the tweet, only to call it an accident the following day:
Just to clarify – it was an accidental 'like'. Anyone looking for drama or beef, sorry to disappoint.
