During the ‘90s, we had some of biggest and brightest stars – who had some of the most unbelievable demands when they were on set. These mega-stars were paid really well for their work, a little too well some might argue, and they called the shots. The studios gave in to any and all of their requests for more money and more perks. Many of these powerful stars have faded from the public eye and we think that this might be because of their over-the-top demands. This should be a warning all of the young, entitled celebrities out there. Here are 7 high-cost demanding mega-stars from the ‘90s!
7. Kevin Costner
Kevin Costner’s career peaked during the ‘90s and so did his demands. He reportedly once joked that he only works with Warner Brothers because they paid for his private jets. We doubt that it was a joke. On set, he expected a lot. He would have a personal trainer/nutritionist, which cost Universal Studios $4,500 per week and a personal driver, trailer, hairstylist, wardrobe assistant and makeup artist for the cost of $50,000.
Costner’s on set demands didn’t stop there. For “The Love of the Game,” he brought in a special effects team to add fake follicles to his receding hairline. He also exercised a lot of control over post-production. A source said that, on “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” he spent hours trying to change scenes in the cutting room because he wanted to make sure that he had more screen time than Alan Rickman’s character, Sheriff of Nottingham.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
