While Penelope Cruz bathed in the spotlight at Cannes, Scarlett Johansson was conspicuously absent from the premiere of their new Woody Allen film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, this past weekend in France.
Why was the newly engaged actress M.I.A.????
Because she was a diva!
According to reports, ScarJo was demanding much more than the studio releasing the film was willing to spend.
Scarlett reportedly refused to stay at the same hotel as Cruz and Allen, and she also refused to share a makeup artist with Penelope.
Johansson was demanding her own exclusive hair and makeup people, which would have cost an additional $5,000 a day for her four-day stay.
ScarJo's decision to stay at a hotel 30 minutes away would have also likely caused many delays in the film's promotion schedule.
"While Woody's terribly fond of Scarlett, he was a little upset that she wasn't being a team player", says an executive connected to the film.
Who would pass up an opportunity to go to Cannes????
Some skanks - like her - show up and they don't even have a movie in the festival!!!!!!
