Constance Wu Responds To Reports That She Demanded Top Billing for ‘Hustlers’
Constance Wu is responding to reports that she has been a diva on the set of Hustlers, reiterating that she stands by her castmates and rejecting the narrative that pits women against one another.
The report in question said that the actress demanded top billing for the movie.
“Constance had no knowledge or awareness of acts on her behalf of Hustlers to have reporting mirror that of the film’s castings or contractual billings,” a rep for Constance told Us Weekly. “Representatives associated with her and the film did engage media outlets to correct misrepresentations of the film’s characters and castings in the spirit of calibrating credits to accurately reflect the guidelines set forth in standard legal contracts.”
“While Constance’s character in Hustlers is the key protagonist, any reporting that implies or indicates that she demanded or directed this recently reported initiative is patently untrue and a clear manipulation of facts,” the rep continued. “She has always been and remains a proud supporter of all her fellow castmates inclusion in the celebration of this film and telling of this story.”
