You’ve probably seen Luke Wilson in AT&T commercials recently. I was surprised to see him there myself, but I thought they were pretty descent. Well apparently Wilson doesn’t think so. Rumor has it that he hates doing the commercials and has become a total diva on set according to Fox411.
Wilson is “awful” on set and even talks back to the director, a source told the site. “He refused to say lines and wanted them re-written. There were some lines meant to direct the commercial in a certain way, but Luke downright refused to say the lines at all. Luke kept saying, ‘I would never say that and I will not say that!’ The staff and production teams were shocked.”
The snitch also said that the Old School star would not be shot with anyone else and all actors appearing in the commercials had to be shot separately and a double was used for Wilson…which when I think of some of the commercials that sounds true…but I’d have to look again. Overall the source claims Wilson is “unprofessional and unpleasant.”
I was surprised to hear this rumor, I thought he gave off such a nice-guy impression. But looking back in the Socialite Life files the same kind of diva rumors dogged Wilson on the set of his film Vacancy back in 2006. Here’s the alleged diva grabbing coffee with friends in Santa Monica.
