It's bad-behavior time on the sets of a trio of movies now being shot.
Chris Tucker, the star whose large paycheck and ego have been well-documented, has been demanding script changes in "Rush Hour 3."
"He won't come out of his trailer until the script is up to his standards," giggled one spy on the set in Santa Ana. "What, $25 million isn't enough to just do your job and act?" A rep for Tucker didn't return calls.
On the same set, horndog director Brett Ratner "sends an assistant named Scott around to every female extra, collecting phone numbers in a too obvious, not-so-suave way," the source said. "Scott commands these $150-a-day actress-hopefuls to give him their phone numbers simply because 'the director wants it.' "
A rep for Ratner, who has dated Rebecca Gayheart and Serena Williams, said, "That's ridiculous. If Brett wants a phone number, he'll get it himself." (source)
