Actor: Mariah Carey Was A Total Diva In Film Cameo
Mariah Carey acted like a total diva while making a cameo appearance for Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s latest comedy “The House,” an actor on the film said Wednesday.
Ferrell’s co-star Rob Huebel told SiriusXm’s Entertainment Weekly radio show that Carey was only on set for a day. (RELATED: Mariah Carey’s Topless Billboards Banned At Two Southern California Airports)
“We did some reshoots with a pop star named Mariah Carey,” Huebel said. “It did not go well. F–ing what is going on with her? It was bananas.”
Huebel went onto claim that Carey showed up “four hours late” to the shoot and had requested that her trailer be filled with stuffed lamb animals and “all white roses.”
“She [Carey] was hired to sing one song, and she was like, ‘You guys, I don’t want to sing that song,'” Huebel claimed. “They’re like, ‘We hired you to sing this song.’ So then they were going to do this bit where they shoot her, I think, and they kill her — in the movie. Not in real life. But she didn’t want that.”
“She was like, ‘I don’t think my character would get killed by bullets. What if I deflected them like Wonder Woman?'” he added. “They were like, ‘Mariah, we don’t have time for [this]. You’re getting paid so much money. We have you for one day. We don’t have time to argue with you. Just do it.’ She just didn’t want to do what they wanted her to do. Anyway, why am I talking trash about her?”
“Just know, if you see her, they had to work for it,” Huebel said when pressed if Carey would appear in the final film out June 30.
