There is an awful lot of tension on the set of this remake of a classic movie!
The female star doesn’t seem to be doing anything specifically wrong or horrible… but, for some reason, the cast and crew can’t stand her!
She showed up the first day with gift baskets for everyone “important.”
Some were gift baskets with cakes, other had cigars.
We were laughing because we had just seen this same scene in that TV movie “Feud” and it was like she thought she was Joan Crawford in real life!
Another crew member had some insight as to how she interacts with the Director and the DP (Director of Photography):
The DP really seems to hate her.
Every time she turns around he rolls his eyes, like “What an idiot!”
He has no contact with her at all unless she is shooting a scene.
He hangs out with [The Director].
They are best friends, and the two of them sit with each other but not with [The Actress] at lunch.
Another crew member characterized The Actress as “awkward”.
She is professional in that she shows up on time and has her lines memorized, but she seems to have trouble just having a normal conversation with real people.
Just awkward and fake and weird.
Most people are just steering clear of her.
