From everything we’ve seen over the past few weeks, Meghan Markle is clearly eager to get her acting career back on track. She and Prince Harry left their position as Royals, moved to Canada, and moved AGAIN to Los Angeles — with a baby, in the middle of a pandemic no less — all in just a matter of 3 months.
But don’t mistake that eagerness for desperation. No, quite the opposite, according to a source spilling to DailyMail.com on Friday.
Apparently Meghan already has the faking it til you make it part down, as the Duchess is already being a total diva! When it comes to the offers flooding in to her team, the Hollywood insider claims “she thinks the majority of them are cheesy and beneath her.”
The source says Meg already knows the type of project she wants to do; she’s “been telling her agents that she wants Ava DuVernay involved, and that they need to find the right script.”
Well, those seem like a perfectly reasonable demands — for someone who is in demand.
While Meghan may be an internationally famous face now, that hasn’t necessarily created a proportionate buzz for her when it comes to casting. After all her biggest role is like the fourth lead on a USA Network show. No one even knows who watches those!
The insider spells out the disconnect between Meghan’s expectations and reality, saying:
“Meghan is worried that she won’t be taken seriously as an actress. Meghan has made it clear to her team that she will only work with A-list directors, but she doesn’t understand that this doesn’t necessarily mean they want to work with her. This could end up being a very lengthy and tedious process because Meghan wants to control every aspect of whatever project she ends up doing.”
Funnily enough her pickiness could result in her having to do something many artists would consider beneath them: a commercial!
The source says Meghan and Harry “are getting lucrative offers from Japan” — ones which could solve their money woes:
“One commercial could pay for their entire security team for the year.”
But surely Meghan must be turning her nose up at the idea of foreign commercials, right? We mean, talk about “cheesy,” we’ve seen the commercials Leonardo DiCaprio and other A-listers have done.
But according to this insider…
“Meghan likes the idea that only the creme de la creme of actors are offered this type of work. She knows they need the money and is not entirely opposed to the idea.”
Wow. If that’s true we are actually pretty surprised she’s not holding out for one of those artistically fulfilling, box office friendly but still critically challenging movies.
What do YOU think of Meghan’s new attitude? Is she being entitled? Or just exuding the right amount of confidence for Hollywood??
