Evan Rachel Wood's Rep Slams $30 Million Lawsuit as 'Preposterous'

Evan Rachel Wood is being sued by the producers of the film 10 Things I Hate About Life for $30 million for allegedly backing out of the project and now her reps are slamming the lawsuit.

The 26-year-old actress was paid $300,000 upfront for the film back in November 2012 and then on January 14, after four weeks of shooting, production was abruptly shut down.

“The lawsuit is preposterous and simply a bullying tactic from financially troubled producers,” her rep told Deadline. “The production shut down in February 2013 when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in Nov. 2013 by which time the producers said they would have cleared up their issues. However, the producers still could not get their act together, nor did they pay Evan money that was owed. Repeated subsequent promises by the producers to resume production and pay Evan also turned out to be false. Enough is enough. The producers, not Evan, have breached contract.”

    Why are they suing for 30 mill? The movie looked dreadful in the teaser trailer. It probably wouldn’t have even been released in theaters it was so bad.

    So they ran out of money, they stopped production, she found out she was pregnant while she was waiting around for THEM but still agreed to do the movie when they were ready, they never got enough finances, they didn’t pay her, but they’re asking for 30 million? I definitely agree with the rep. They’re out to get her money to fix their own problems, and they breached contract. Hope this lawsuit gets thrown out.

    It sounds like she abandoned the project but what a piece of **** role. Why did she take this part in the first place? Are the good roles that hard to land if you’re not Jennifer, Shailene or Lupita?

    @Selita Gomez:
    You are a terrible person to say things like that about someone you don’t even know! They shut down production and then she was pregnant! She agreed to continue after the baby was born and they still didn’t have the money to continue. This is horrible and they are trying to ruin her career by bullying her. Horrible people.

    Producers are scum bags. There are countless cases of movie and music producers messing up and blaming the talent. @Selita Gomez: I swear, you are the biggest idiot on this site. Quit writing moronic bullsh!t and go back to frying burgers.

    Why do you come here to post about her if you hate her so much? Nothing better going on in your own lives? Is this just Mean Girl entertainment for you? Get a life.

    @Cate: Definitely. Her schnoz was much bigger when she was little but her chin keeps growing for some reason.

    I changed my mind: Evan is the most beautiful & talented actress in Hollywood.

    beats Says:

    Why would anyone think a movie with this C lister as the lead would gross anywhere near $ 30 million? The producers should be sued for claiming that amount.

    beats Says:

    She probably did have a nose job. When she was a kid on that show, her nose was much bigger. As for the chin, maybe a chin implant?

    Average-looking chick who had a nose job. Not uncommon in HW.

    She needs to start choosing better roles or at least stuff that gets released beyond limited run & DVD.
