Do you think that if we memorized the dictionary, minded our Ps and Qs, and professed our undying love for Tim Gunn, he’d adopt us? Fashion’s most honest icon has offered up some advice for hater-of-all-things-pants-related Taylor Momsen. Gunn recently filmed a cameo on Gossip Girl where he found Momsen’s behavior on set “pathetic” and “sad.”
Gunn told E!, “What a diva! She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself, ‘Why are we all being held hostage by this brat?'”
Yikes. But apparently Gunn isn’t alone. “At one point the director leaned in and whispered to me, ‘This is day in, day out, my life.’ She annoyed the entire crew,” he added.
Ever the teacher, Gunn said if he had the chance, he’d have offered her some constructive criticism.
“I’d say, ‘You know young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you. Why are you acting like this show is a huge burden on you?’ She was on her phone during every break, I wanted to tell her, ‘If you weren’t on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff.’
