Hollywood Drama: 15 of The Most Difficult Female Celebrities To Work With!

Celebrity divas are nothing new to the industry or the fans that read about them. Although a lot of celebs try to pride themselves on being humble and down-to-earth, there are others that just don’t care. They have demands that need to be met! Go figure. Whether they are rattling off laundry list for the décor of their dressing rooms or not talking to co-stars on their sets, these celebs have really ruffled some industry feathers. Check out 15 celebs who may have invisibly branded the word “brat” before their name.

Nicki Minaj never forgets to thank her fans for making her the performer that she is today, but what about the people that work with her on an everyday basis. What do they think of Ms. Minaj? According to co-host Mariah Carey, who worked very closely with her on American Idol, Nicki can be quite a handful to deal with on any set. With rumors that she felt Mariah was getting more attention than she was on set, Nicki eventually became irate during the gig, even making threats toward Mariah’s family. Wow, real cool Nicki!

    KH i totally believe. There were rumors about her attitude way back during her Roswell days

  2. says:

    Nicki had to serve the entire young money crew to get to were she is today. She probably can’t even look at herself in the mirror so that is the reason for her antics especially not wanting others to look at her in the eye. I actually feel sorry that she wanted fame so much. As far as the demands what many don’t realize is the managers be behind those demands and the star may not even know. I remember a few years ago an A list star fired her agent cause she found out the ridiculous demands her queen of an agent was making behind her back. A lot of times the agent lives through the star they represent.

    How does Jennifer Aniston rushing to grab her lunch and not sitting with the other cast members translate into being difficult to work with?

    • says:

      I eat my lunch alone, because I love to read, does that make me hard to get along with?

      • says:

        Well, the “writer” of this article would say so. I would disagree.

      • says:

        Hey, she’s probably a great kid, but her tit’s are starting to sag, but we all go south at a certain time. Hang in there Jennifer…

        • says:

          That’s a sexiest and unnecessary remark Jer. Besides, your ballsac is starting to sag. Hang out there….

          • says:

            jeronimo and queen–keep your vile remarks in your head, not necessary to the conversation.

          • says:

            I’ve seen many of YOUR comments online and you are NO ONE to police what anyone else has to say. You’re just another one of those RepubliTHUGS. For any man to say of an actress “her **** are starting to sag” is a sexist remark. As a woman, I have a right (some would even argue a DUTY!) to point this out. So stop trying to control me. You’d have better luck tilting at windmills, Don Quixote.

    • says:

      She’s a stuck up anti social snob. And ugly too.

    • says:

      Most of this stuff is made up.

    • says:

      Doubt they wrote everything they found, but not eating lunch is a little skimpy on reasoning.

    • says:

      I don’t believe that one. I read an article years ago that said she and Courtney would share a salad at lunch during the show almost everyday. I remember it because I would laugh at the thought of sharing a salad.

      • says:

        That is PROBABLY how they stayed so thin; LOL
        Three of us would shared a LARGE pizza most Fridays! (No one a size zero.)

    • says:

      I was wondering that. I hate eating lunch with my coworkers daily. You need some time to think! Plus I hate people watching me eat. That was a petty one…

    • says:

      Who can blame her. That show sucks

    • says:

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I like to eat alone, or take a nap, or read during lunch. Is that evil?

  4. says:

    Gwyneth Paltrow is also a pretentious jerk, who “can’t wait to get back to Europe” where peoples are so much more refined.

  5. says:

    I am not surprised by any of these women being called divas. In my book, every one of them is a pathetic, laughable, jerk that is full of themselves. How can they really take themselves so seriously? It is a joke. Why people take them seriously is beyond me. Lets see how they stack up to other women who truly have sacrificed and who are heroic? Get over yourselves, girls. You really are nothing special.

  6. says:

    So, Aniston did not eat lunch with her fellow actors. This makes her difficult to work with?

  7. says:

    This entire set of supposed “sins” by the aforementioned celebrities reads like it was written by a catty subpar jurno who got his a.s handed to him on a platter a couple of times by a famous so and so, and is now crying in a corner somewhere. Just because someone can’t be bothered to be interviewed by a gossip columnist doesn’t make them difficult to work with: they just don’t care about you, and what you do. It’s their right. I read it front to back because i actually work with celebrities on movie sets every day and wanted to know if they are even close. NOT!

  8. says:

    I find it hard to believe that of all of the people in Hollywood, the most difficult celebrities to work with are all women. There are plenty of stories of men that are difficult too.

  9. says:

    They all have to drop their pants in order to take a crap. No different then the rest of we poor folks.

  10. says:

    Interesting that no men were mentioned.

  11. says:

    “Doesn’t Jennifer Aniston seem so down-to-earth during all those red carpet interviews and comedic characters she plays?”

    No, her characters seem very self-absorbed.

    • says:

      Skytag… don’t say characterS’, she is a lousy actress. She is the same character no matter what show or movie she is in. She always plays a flustered pain in the butt yenta. She just plays her real self.

    • says:

      Its a character on a set where the directors most likely told her the kind of attitude and personality the character should have.

  12. says:

    I know people who work in the film industry. My roommate worked on a recent Gwyneth Paltrow movie and she told me that she was never happy on set and complained the whole time while shooting. I guess it is true, money can’t buy you happiness or class.

    • says:

      So sad, I don’t care how talented you are, you should be allowed to treat people like they’re the dust beneath your feet. She’s a moron.

    • says:

      I would love to see a director create a movie starring all 15 of these celebrities. Obviously, the movie will never get done, but they should secretly tape all the backstage drama and air it as a reality show.

      • says:

        Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come. ~Robert H. Schuller

    • says:

      I’ve heard that about Gwyneth as well from crew members in London when she was shooting there. They said she was bitchy, cold and demanding, and couldn’t wait till the shoot was over.

  13. says:

    Interesting – since she is the Godmother of Courtney Cox’s daughter.

  14. says:

    Really? Then how did Courtney Cox get to be one of her best friends? And just because she didn’t eat lunch with everyone else doesn’t make her unfriendly. Maybe she did something else on her lunch break, like work out or learn her lines.

  15. says:

    Where are the dudes?

    • says:

      Obviously you didn’t read the title of the article. Guess they had a hard time finding any “dude” female celebrities….

  16. says:

    I would imagine that Gwenyth Paltrow treats journalists like “has-beens” because people who make their careers by writing about acting celebrities are our civilization’s lowest form of professional leech.

  17. says:

    We should remember these celebrity monsters are ones we created. If you stop paying attention to them and giving them your money, they cease to exist.

  18. says:

    Rushing in to grab her lunch makes Jennifer Aniston “difficult”?? not in my book.

  19. says:

    I wonder how many of them are sick of being stalked by said journalists.

  20. says:

    Not surprised about any of them except for Mila Kunis. I didn’t think she was snotty like that..but I guess being a celebrity, for some, will eventually do things to the brain. Sad…

  21. says:

    This article is one of the most ridiculously unfounded accusatory article I have read in a while. It consists of your own “stories” which appear to be totally unfounded. On top of that, there are so many spelling, grammatical, and just plain old errors in the writing that I find myself wondering if you wrote the damn thing on your cell phone. The trash we accept now as being press and the hacks that call themselves journalists is a joke. Consider yourself a proud member of that group.

  22. says:

    Nicki Minaj, has stones to act like a diva, and no talent to back it up. Sad……

  23. says:

    Lindsay Lohan, talented but no brain or perception……

  24. says:

    Ashlee Simpson, really? What is this world coming to….NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO TTTTTAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNTTTTTTTT!

  25. says:

    Why was this list segregated just for women and not “15 of the most difficult celebrities to work with”. I’ve heard horror stories about demanding, too big for their britches men too. So what gives? It doesn’t surprise me that these women you list are difficult to work with, most of which are very open about how demandly diva-ish they are; but I’m terribly disappointed that it’s only women that you list. It just goes back to the same biased opinion this world has of women AND it alienates your readers! Shame on you.

    • says:

      Yeah, I have heard Tom Cruise is not always the easiest guy to work with, Bruce Willis has one hell of a mean streak etc. I don’t think celebrity ego is gender limited.

  26. says:

    Ashlee Simpson and Celebrity does not equate.

  27. says:

    I was a volunteer at the California Womens Conference a few years ago and J-LO was one of the speakers. After receiving her lengthy list of demands they realized they did not have the right “brand” of bottled water she requested. Everyone was so terrified or her reaction (from past experience) they sent someone to purchase it to avoid a meltdown.

    • says:

      I don’t understand that. Why not just give her whatever water they had on hand. If she doesn’t like it, she doesn’t have to drink it or she can bring her own. The reason these “celebrities” act like that is that people let them.

      If they decide to cancel or leave a commitment, the host has every right to say “well she pitched a fit that we didn’t have her favorite water”. The overdemanding celebrities need to get over themselves

      (I refuse to call them Divas. A TRUE diva is reserved for opera, not women with whiny demands)

  28. says:

    i was on another article when i saw a link to this and for a second i thought gwyneth paltrow was anna torv and i flew into the sun screaming “IS THAT MY OLIVIA DUNHAM” and then i was so confused

  29. says:

    Lisa Kudrow shared that she and Courtney Cox ate lunch with aniston everyday and had the same salad, created by aniston every day. How is that not having lunch with co-workers?

  30. says:

    I remember something about the Friends cast having lunch together all of the time, but even if one of them chose to not eat with other cast members, how does that make one difficult? Everyone needs a break.

  31. says:

    I never realized Nicki Minaj was a real person… I always thought she was a computer generated tart designed to concentrate every possible abrasive quality into a simulated metaphor of “difficult” combined with deliberate ugliness.

  32. says:

    This list was interesting but some of the “decisions” on the person being difficult came from ONE example, Mila Kunis was in a rush and late one time? Someone apparently saw Jennifer Aniston in a rush at some point? Others are a given, it just seems obvious that Gwyneth is a horrible human being and that the “divas” think they have to act superior because of their belief of the definition of the word Diva. And Naomi Campbell, well… imagine working with violence all day long? ;)

  33. says:

    Are any of these commenters ACTUALLY acquainted with any of the above mentioned celebrities? There appear to be several “posters” with opinions regarding these people and I do not believe they know of what they speak of. In other words, if you cannot prove your celebrity-slams, then STFU!

  34. says:

    Where’s F. Murray Abraham?

  35. says:

    Shannon Doherty obviously still bitter about having one eye on her cheek and the other on her forehead.

  36. says:

    All women notice that !

  37. says:

    Newsflash: Beautiful celebrities are bitchy & spoiled!

  38. says:

    They forgot Justin Bieber.

  39. says:

    there is nothing wrong with that. She’s her own person.

  40. says:

    G Paltrow has always led a very privileged life. If it were not for all of her parents’ money when she was growing up, the blonde scarecrow looking person would be nothing.

  41. says:

    Um, Izzie Stevens (Heigl’s character) wasn’t killed off the show… Simple research before writing an article is generally a good idea…

  42. says:

    Glad they said celebrities and not stars. Most of these aren’t, but a couple used to be.

  43. says:

    What do you expect from people who get the asses kissed constantly? If the people in charge told the Prima-donnas to go F$%^ themselves over stupid demands and fired them for treating staff and crew like dirt then they might learn something.

  44. says:

    funny how all these self absorbed people have a vagina….

  45. says:

    Ahh, so the difficult Ms Barton was killed off on Gossip Girls was she? Kind of undermines the credibility of the reporting, IMHO.

  46. says:

    Oh, Yeah!! News flash nikki minaj is not, I say not a celebrity…

  47. says:

    lindsey LoHo is not an actor..she’s a drug user…

  48. says:

    Madonna is the Queen…All hale the Queen…She’s gotten where she is in the man’s world by working her butt off…

  49. says:

    beyonce is a straight up Fakecunt an lier, she never was pregnant…

  50. says:

    OMG..J.Ho is a SuperCunt… We all know that…

  51. says:

    mariah is fat old and ugly…go away all ready…

  52. says:

    This article is very upsetting, I probably won’t be able too sleep for weeks..

  53. says:

    Funny, how all these celebs that are hard to work with are female. Nicki Minaj is nothing but Garbaj. In other words, pure trash.

  54. says:

    That Nicki Minaj is one ugly biatch…

  55. says:

    I’m trying to figure out the logic of some of these actresses being rated most difficult to work with.

    Jennifer Anniston: Evidence provided is that she doesn’t have lunch with costars. So? You’re difficult to work with if you demand coworkers bring you lunch and wrap their schedules around your schedule, not because you didn’t hangout.

    Mila Kunis: Evidence given is a single day where she orders things to be snappy, balanced against a reputation (something built on many points of evidence) of being a nice person. I’m getting the impression author Alexis Webb doesn’t understand basic statistics: you need multiple data points to really establish a trend.

    Gwynneth Paltrow: Not my favorite actress, but the proof is that she’s a difficult actress to work with comes from her treatment of non-actors (reporters) who are not involved in her acting performances? Sure, and I’m a bad driver because I leave the toilet seat up. No, these points are not related.

    Katherine Heigl: Has the artistic integrity to tell off her boss (to the point of saying she doesn’t like her own character) and suffers for it. Again, this gives no indication of how difficult Katherine is to work with.

    Someone who is difficult to work with is someone who doesn’t consider the needs of coworkers, regularly obstructs filming, and is otherwise a pain in the butt on a repeated basis. The snippets provided for Paltrow, Kunis, Anniston, and Heigl don’t show that. Instead, they’re out-of-context bits of gossip that do not demonstrate any trend of being difficult to work with.

    Look, maybe those 4 actresses are evil witches. Maybe they need to drink the blood of virgin kittens before they show up on the set. But, Alexis, you did a poor job of making your case.

  56. says:

    Sounds like a lot of lies out here. Never have heard anything negative said about Mila Kunis by anyone that she has ever worked with. Directors and actors have nothing but positive things to say about her. She has gone out of her way to be nothing but nice on or off stage. She has handled adversity very nicely, also. The woman is all class. Until proven differently she will keep that title up.

  57. says:

    So since Jennifer Aniston doesn’t eat lunch with the rest of the cast it means she is unbearable to work with? Maybe she had other things to do at lunch on her free time. I don’t eat with my co-workers, that is when I make phone calls, go for a walk, etc.

  58. says:

    Like it or not these people worked hard and earned their rights to be douches.

  59. says:

    That outfit Jennifer Anniston is wearing in that pic does nothing for her…

  60. says:

    Look at all the jealous little nobodies posting lol. Ok, get off the library computer and go back to your minimum wage McJobs.

  61. says:

    this article is completely ridiculous. the fact that the author thinks katherine heigl’s character was killed off grey’s anatomy tells me all i need to know about the validity of the information she’s citing….

  62. says:

    Reading about the diva behavior reminded me that two of the greatest female singers who ever sang a note:Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan,got on stage and blew everybody away,but managed to be down-to-earth singers,not impressed with themselves at all.These new”singers,” none of whom can hold a candle to the aforementioned true superstars, will last as long in the memory of those of us who loved them.Divas make me want to PUKE.

  63. says:

    I wouldn’t believe one word Maria says. Its PROVEN that Mariahs the one who’s hard to work with. She is so self-centered.

  64. says:

    This is kind of a stupid article. While there are people in Hollywood who are difficult to work with on a regular basis (I worked in Hollywood and I can name a few), some of the actors in the list above only have one incident charged against them, and everyone has bad days.

    As for how they treat Journalists – often they treat these same actors with disdain, and will write anything horrible about them they can find, true or not. What is surprising about a few of them not wanting to give a media hound the time of day?

  65. says:

    Most of this is creative speculation and exaggeration.

  66. says:

    It’s still a huge mystery how Naomi Campbell became a supermodel. She’d be more at home in a zoo than on a runway.

  67. says:

    Who’s Mila Kunis?

  68. says:

    Who’s Katherine Heigel?

  69. says:

    I really wouldn’t give too much credence to this article. You can’t please everyone all the time.

  70. says:

    Happy to report I didn’t recognize most of these names/faces. Long ago I decided to forgo television and most movies. No need to subject myself to such people.

  71. says:

    maybe we need out “divas”. Shannon Doughtery and Naomi Campbell are some of my favorites….

  72. says:

    This website sucks with all its creepy pop-ups and jumping to the ads section so you can’t even read what you cam here for. Done and donner.

  73. says:

    If their men there fighting for artist integrity. If their a woman there difficult.

    Don’t stop being difficult Ladies.

  74. says:

    this website has more pop ups then info about what you are really trying to read. #wannabesellout

  75. says:

    this website is a waste of time websites like this make anything up that might sound true. No one cares what Africa Miranda has to say, if you have to tell people what you are from then that means no one knows you.

  76. says:

    Garbage infested website

  77. says:

    I hear the writer of this article is a diva

  78. says:

    I love my Gwynnies! <3

  79. says:

    Self-absorbed twits, the whole lot of them.

  80. says:

    Lindsey looks good!

  81. says:

    Um, honestly…. I’m not a big fan of being social with people I work with. I’m nice. I do my job. Once people start talking religion/politics/personal tastes… basically, once “emotions” get involved, problems happen. Just keep it friendly and keep it generic.

  82. says:

    Dude, there’s so many grammatical errors in this piece.

  83. says:

    Who writes this stuff? How’d they get a job? Did they actually graduate college? Just read through the commentaries… it’s painful.

  84. says:

    Uhh…if Madonna and Beyonce are in that list, then it renders the list worthless. Beyonce’s half time show was the best half-time show EVER. Madonna’s rise to success was phenomenal. Most people are mediocre and are deathly afraid of claiming what they want lest be labelled that blackest of all labels – arrogant. I haven’t gone past Beyonce, I have a life, but I am sure if this were an older list, Sting would be in there too.
    Excellence drives action. Those actions usually drives normal people nuts.

    • says:

      Beyonce and Madonna put everything on the line every time they walk on stage. That takes guts and talent. They work hard for their millions, unlike Lohan and many other celebs without any real talent or courage.

      • says:

        Yeh. However I do like Lohan as an actress though. She is a natural. Folk take acting for granted. It is not an easy talent to foster. I really don’t care what she does with her body. She is good as what she does – just as Charlie Sheen is.

  85. says:

    I am so “happy” that folks can complain about people who make them money. This is a no prob..except it is gossip

  86. says:

    Who writes this crap, children? Quote from this article:
    “Needless to say Heigl was eventually killed off the show,…” What show? You never mentioned it in your paragraph.

  87. says:

    No surprise to see arrogant elitist “I’m Gwyneth Paltrow and you’re not” on this list

  88. says:

    Where are the guys?

  89. says:

    Meow. Scratch Claw Hiss. You’re lying and as Bey’s new album would say you’re “JEALOUS”!

  90. says:

    I’ve always been a bit mystified by Gwyneth’s fame. I know she’s known for having a rock star hubby and famous well-connected parents.

  91. says:

    Actually her character Izzy Stevens is still alive, she just ‘Moved Away’ so perhaps you should get your facts straight…

  92. says:

    Madonna’s arrogance along makes her ugly and I never understood the appeal, always thought she was gutter trash!

  93. says:

    Nicki Minaj will be forgotten in 5 years

  94. says:

    Ack! What a dumb article! I bailed quickly! It’s the list of usual suspects. And maybe not many people would go on record, so they just have these vague bits of evidence…
    Two things I know – ANYONE can have a bad day, and be vilified for not signing autographs, or getting there time. And – fame often brings out the ugly inside of us. I was a very minor personality, with very little ego… but after a few years, it changes you! It’s the way the system works. These stars are worth millions, needed their egos to get where they are, and have those egos fed every day. They get paid too much, get pampered too much, and live lives of fantasies. Few can remain normal under these circumstances! I hope Jennifer Lawrence can maintain her grounded uber-sweetness!

  95. says:

    They’re human too in a high stress occupation often dealing with the personality inadequacies that propelled them into the business in the first place. And then there’s the paparazzi chewing at your soul whenever you step outside.

  96. says:

    And yet people keep meeting their demands!

  97. says:

    When they say “Gossip Girl” in regards to Mischa Barton, do they mean “The OC”? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t recall Mischa Barton on Gossip Girl (I haven’t watched all of the last season yet, so I could be wrong), and I certainly don’t remember he being killed off. I remember her being killed off in The O.C. though!
