(Newser) – Since divas always want to be the center of attention, The Frisky devoted an entire list to them. Eight ladies with bad on-set reputations:

  • Paris Hilton: Played herself—for just one day of shooting—in The Other Guys, yet still had three pages of demands including live lobsters prepared fresh and a bottle of Grey Goose vodka.
  • Courteney Cox: A Cougar Town crew member says she once yelled at an assistant who prepared her ham and cheese sandwich incorrectly.

  • Ellen Pompeo: Was such a pain during the first season of Grey’s Anatomy, she was nicknamed “Pompous Pompeo”—she even insisted on being interviewed separately from the rest of the cast .
  • Faye Dunaway: She also earned herself a nickname—“the dreaded Dunaway”—on the set of Roman Polanski’s Chinatown. Supposedly, tantrums were involved.
For the complete list—including the not-entirely-surprising news that Lindsay Lohan was once banned from a set—click here.
