[News.com.au] Cheryl Cecchetto has crafted the biggest parties in show business over the past 25 years, including official celebrations for the Oscars and Emmy Awards, and a host of famous weddings.
[One year at a major event] she came face-to-face with an Aussie actor who she describes as one of the most difficult stars she has encountered.
“I don’t mention any names because that’s not who I am,” she said.
But the story is one she’s willing to share. After nearly 100 phone calls between her company and the unnamed celebrity’s people, working out his many and varied demands, he finally agreed to appear in order to accept an award.
As well as demanding a big supply of M&M chocolates in his dressing room, with the green ones removed, he showed up extremely late and refused to take his seat in the audience.
When he did collect his award, the arrogant actor demanded to leave early — and was only coaxed back to the party when his brother pointed out how rude he was being.
