Director's claim hurts actress

BLIND ITEMS: How true is it that an award-winning actress felt so hurt when the director of her recent movie wrote on social media that he is the reason why she won an acting award? Someone close to the actress told us she felt it’s so rude of the director to do that, claiming that he changed her teleserye style of acting for his movie.

“In fairness to the actress,” says her defender, “even before she did this movie with that director, she has already won so many other acting awards, so to claim that he’s the reason why she won is so presumptuous of him.”

The actress is said to be annoyed that she has now talked to a more prestigious and acclaimed director to do a movie with him. She wants to prove that she does not need the “presumidong direktor” for her acting to shine in any movie that she would do.

In the meantime, another director got disappointed when the producer of a prestige movie he’s supposed to do suddenly told him that she does not have the budget yet to finance his project about poverty porn. “Nagtataka lang si Direk,” says our source. “Kasi nagpa-presscon na ang producer for the movie at nakumpleto na ang cast, nai-present na sa press ang lead actress and lead actor na parehong award-winners, tapos biglang hindi pala tuloy ang project. Tinatanong ngayon ni Direk ang producer kung bakit gumastos pa siya sa presscon, e wala pa naman pala siyang enough funds to finance the whole movie? Nakakahiya tuloy sa mga artistang nag-commit na sa kanila.”
