Scarlett Johansson snubbed the premiere of Woody Allen’s latest movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona at the Cannes International Film Festival after movies bosses reportedly refused to cater to her diva demands.
The blonde beauty – who stars in the new movie alongside Penelope Cruz – was expected to grace the red carpet at the French festival on Saturday, but missed the prestigious premiere amid rumours movie bosses at the French arm of Warner Bros Films – the production’s distributors – reportedly denied her extravagant hospitality expectations.
According to the Daily Mail, the Lost In Translation star made a string of demands to ensure her appearance at the renowned festival – including a $8,000 a day make-up artist.
Reports also suggest Johansson was unwilling to stay at a luxurious central Cannes hotel with director Allen and co-star Penelope Cruz, preferring a suite at a hotel 30 miles away.
A source told the paper; “While Woody’s terribly fond of Scarlett, he was a little upset that she wasn’t being a team player.”
Johansson’s male-star, Spanish Oscar-winner Javier Bardem, also missed the movie’s Cannes premiere on Saturday, citing personal family reasons for his non-appearance.
