(Newser) – Poor Luke Wilson was forced to do lowly AT&T commercials for money, and the loss of his indie cred has apparently turned him into a huge diva. A source tells Fox that during filming Wilson would “talk back to the director,” insist that his lines be re-written, and refuse to shoot scenes with other actors: “Luke is annoyed that he has to do commercials to make money as an actor and he makes the experience miserable, because he's miserable.”

“There were some lines meant to direct the commercial in a certain way, but Luke downright refused to say the lines at all. Luke kept saying, ‘I would never say that and I will not say that!’” the source continues. “It’s unprofessional and unpleasant.” He’s not the only Wilson brother involved in drama: Owen and Andrew were recently sued by a photographer over an alleged assault.
