Mike Myers is a diva with a side of bitch

Oooo, it seems Mike Myers happy-go-lucky reputation has caught up to his ego. “The Love Guru” is opening in theaters and is reportedly painful to watch. Critics are unapologetically ripping the movie apart with bad reviews. Despite a decent level of star power present in the film, you can’t buy class. To add insult to injury the notoriously funny Myers is said to be a demanding diva. After making an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show the workers backstage felt the wrath of his “crazy” requests.

The comic made an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” Wednesday to promote ‘‘The Love Guru,’ but he drove backstage staffers bonkers while he waited to go on. ‘He sent a team of interns on a wild goose chase for Silk nondairy creamer, Twizzlers and raspberry seltzer,’ said our witness. ‘Then he sent one of the interns back out to get him a new drink when he realized his seltzer was not the brand he requested.’”

The casting for the film was even all about Mike and his demands. In order to score a role in the film you had to either be a good friend or have a friend that is tight with Myers. Jessica Alba and Ben Kingsley were both cast thanks to a “mutual friend.” Justin Timberlake and Verne Troyer had worked with the “Austin Powers’ creator before. Del Close was a former teacher (who was mentioned in the interview done with Sports Illustrated for some unknown reason being that passed away 1999. Thanks guys!). He also sent out the script to some Hollywood BFF’s to score some more star power.

Myers: “It was the same with Austin Powers. I sent a script out to Steven Spielberg, Tom Cruise, Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito, John Travolta and Gwyneth Paltrow and they all said yes and all arrived on the same day. It was an embarrassment of riches.”

Hmmmm. Other than Danny DeVito and Spielberg, the set could have collapsed and I wouldn’t miss any of them. Although there would probably be a Scientology uprising at the loss of their commander and his lieutenant. Who would Xenu phone home to?

Picture note by JayBird: Here’s Mike Myers at the premiere of ‘The Love Guru’ held at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on June 11th. I was really confused about what he was doing with Mariska Hargitay. Apparently there’s some joke in the movie about her name – I think it’s that it’s magical or something. But there’s no way in hell I’d subject myself to watching it in order to find out. Images thanks to WENN.

    Del Close is not alive. I’m not too sure why he’s mentioned.

  2. Ron says:

    He is a well know diva here is LA. Esp since he divorced. Nothing new.

  3. Jen (the other one) says:

    Mariska looks so pretty when she’s not making her patented “I think Elliott just pooped his pants” face on SVU.

    :-)

    He uses it in one of his mantras while meditating. He uses real words and other silly things instead of an actual chant. It is a very original joke :roll: . I didn’t see the movie, I read it in a review some where. I don’t have any desire to see for myself how bad it really is.

    I love the quote frome the NY Times review “makes you wonder if you will ever laugh again.” If he made all these demands even after the EW article came out, he doesn’t really care what the public thinks of him.

    I don’t know who I dislike more him or Katherine Heigl. Both seem to have built big egos with little talent. He could turn to her for advice on how to admit it was a flop and then blame other people for it.

    I love Mariska!

    And Mike Myers (HA! Just like the Halloween monster!) has hard, mean beady little eyes.

    Even when he is smiling, you can see he’s nasty. The eyes never lie.

  6. MISSY says:

    I never found him so talented enough to be in Hollywood. People who act like that are not happy, so they make other people’s lives miserable

    I have heard for years what a diva bitch he is. As long as one gets away with it……

    It’s too bad, I really enjoyed Wayne’s World when I was a kid. Ditto for So I Married…!

  9. Kat says:

    He hasn’t had a good movie since 1992 (Wayne’s World.) Maybe it’s time to retire, eh Mikey? :roll:

    After all, no one likes a failed diva. Just ask Britney.

  10. silly lilly says:

    I don’t really think any of those requests are divaesque…asking for SILK which is a soy milk and available in ANY NYC store (I would know)…asking for a specific brand of flavored seltzer…this is diva? Uh oh then someone better hook me up with my own Diva card because I must be one too.

    Everyone is all hatin on him now but yet everywhere I go, someone is quoting this dude’s movies.

    I guess Eddie Murphy’s new movie is out in a few weeks so everyone is practicing their whipping action for this one?

  11. paris herpes says:

    That tight-lipped control freak! Could he be any less gay? I hardly knew he was till recently, then wasn’t really surprised. He sure looks those tight outfits. He barely has the figure for it, looks like a short peen!

  12. lola says:

    Why do people’s egos get so inflated after a while? I am not a huge fan of flase modesty but people like this get so tiring. I still hate Katherine Hiegl more, because I never liked her even when she was humble. I saw it coming.

    Now I can’t wait for Eddy Murphy’s movie. Can’t stand him either.

  13. vdantev says:

    and his movie tanked !! A fourth place opening. Ouch !!

  14. anonymous says:

    You need to see So I Married an Axe Murderer…that one was funny and not too over the top…

  15. bekah says:

  16. grots says:

    Don’t ya just love it when another scientologist bites the dust? Scientology must have classes on how to be an arrogant pompas asshole. Diva lessons at 7:00.
