Actress Tia Texada spoke with Chaunce Hayden of Steppin’ Out magazine and spoke regrettably about working with Mariah Carey on the film-flop ‘Glitter’, and the diva behavior the singer exhibited that ended up ruining the film. “It was a disaster from the time I got there,” she fumed. “It was just horrible. I wanted to quit, but I couldn’t because when you’re in, you’re in. I would call my manager every day, trying to get myself off the film. I was so new and I thought you had to listen to what you were told. People would say, ‘You have to wear this!’ and I would just say, ‘Well I don’t want to wear that!’ But everyone, including Mariah Carey said, ‘You have to wear what we give you or you’re fired!’ She did not want any of us to look good!” The sexy actress added, “Let me just tell you that I wasn’t allowed to show any of my body in this movie because she would not allow it. It’s too bad because she’s so beautiful and talented that she doesn’t need to be that way. But she was very insecure. Everyone else I worked with, whether it was Colin Farrell, Chris Rock, Renee Zellweger, or Morgan Freeman, have all been so generous and easy to work with. But working with Mariah was really hard. She knows that I feel this way. When you work with actors, you have to make those around you who you’re working with feel comfortable. But she tried to make us all feel horrible and it came out in the film. That’s why the film was such a flop. In fact, she cut out all my dance moves. She said, ‘Sorry, but this movie is about my singing not your dancing.’ She just ruined the film.”
