In a movie that includes Alex Rodriguez's girlfriend, an NFL celebrity minority owner and a tennis star's pin-up model wife, it's the stand-up comic who's being called out for his near constant need to be pampered on-set.
Chris Rock has been showing some serious diva-like qualities during shooting of "What to Expect When You're Expecting," according to the New York Daily News. The paper reports via on-set sources that Rock's list of demands include a black Escalade to take him from one filming location to the next. Normally stars are driven around in standard transportation vans.
The hilarious comedian has a posse that must make LeBron James proud, including a personal hair stylist, makeup artist and bodyguard. His outrageous demands include that his entire brigade of handlers "are always within 10 feet of him." Standard show business etiquette has a star's hair and makeup artists in a different tent altogether during production.
A-Rod's girl Cameron Diaz, Miami Dolphins limited partner Jennifer Lopez and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker (wife of Andy Roddick) have thus far been able to avoid prima donna tabloid reports about their on-set activities.
J. Lo did get some attention earlier this month showing off a dolphin tattoo, which the Daily Mail says may be for the film, or could be in honor of the team she has a limited ownership stake in.
The films cast also includes Dallas Cowboys star Tony Romo's buddy and brother-in-law Chace Crawford.
"What to Expect when You're Expecting," is a look at the lives of four couples as they prepare to become parents. The Kirk Jones directed Lionsgate film is set for a 2012 release.
