Celebs talkin’ trash on each other is nothing new in Tinseltown (just ask Paris and Lindsay), but when a big ol’ movie star disses his costar on set (behind her back, natch), that’s something else. But let’s back up. Seymour Slim-Bum first worked with Darlene Deviant a few years ago on a dramatic thriller. Both babes had somethin' goin' on and got props for their badass acting chops. The flick did very well at the box office and received accolades from critics and fans alike. So, it only made sense that, years later, these two good-looking honeys were both tapped to play in a flick again.
Now, this particular project was a little more romantic and a little less randy than their last turn together, but it smelled of box-office gold. It’s an adaptation of a rather popular property, and with Seymour and Dar attached, studio types figured they couldn’t go wrong. But then, some equally bright-minded execs also greenlighted the densely literary Love in the Time of Cholera, so what the ef do these suits know?
And then add not-necessarily translatable dynamics with a lotta nervous Nellie neurosis. See, recently when the flick was under way, Darlene-love started being very peculiar. She’d disappear into her trailer for hours at a time, with no explanation. No one was exactly sure what D2 was up to. Arguing with her hot-tempered partner, perhaps? D.D. and her man have had quite the tempestuous relationship, to say the least. Regardless of the reason, it was only a matter of time before SSB got fed up with his costar’s very regular disappearing act.
“That woman has problems,” he was overheard saying (many times) on set. And perhaps SSB’s newfound dislike for Darlene came across in the dailies or something, because now sources close to the hugely hyped project are saying it’s been shelved indefinitely. As for how this will affect both stars’ paychecks and reputations, guess we’ll have to wait and see.
