Vin Diesel acts like a diva on movie press tour

fast furious at nrj 190309

Vin Diesel was on the cusp of becoming a mega star when his career suddenly tanked. He walked away from the �Fast and the Furious� franchise that made him famous, then did the same for the �XXX� movies. After a few disastrous films, including a turn in a Disney movie, Diesel returned to his roots with a new �Fast and Furious� sequel - but don�t expect a big star like Vin to actually show up on time to his press interviews or anything.

Vin Diesel is such a prima donna, his own publicity company can�t even deal with him anymore.

Diesel was scheduled to do a long press junket for his upcoming flick Fast & Furious on Sunday, but he infuriated the event organizers when he decided to show up late and act like a diva.

�No one could get a hold of him,� an insider told Page Six. �He didn�t pick up his phone and it wasn�t until a Universal executive called that he finally picked up and used the lame excuse, �I�m sick.� �

Four hours later he showed up to the press junket and �didn�t look sick. But he did do a couple hours of press.�

Apparently his publicist at 42 West was so annoyed by the incident, the firm no longer represents him.

You would think someone like Diesel, whose star is quickly burning out, would be more open to doing press and getting better recognition, but it sounds like his ego has become bigger than his triceps.

4. In 1999, J.Lo released her first album, On the 6. During that time, she was dating Sean "Puffy" Combs, and also donned this unforgettable Versace gown to the 2000 Grammy Awards.

5. In the early '90s, Lopez got a sweet gig as a member of the Fly Girl dance troupe on Keenan Ivory Wayans' (center) sketch comedy show, "In Living Color." In case you didn't know, "Dancing With the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba (bottom right) was also a Fly Girl

6. Jennifer Lopez was born on July 24, 1969, in the Bronx, New York. The middle of three daughters, "Jenny From the Block" dreamed of becoming a performer

Britney and Jason Get Domestic

The pop star reportedly stocked up on household items such as brooms and picture frames. Hope she brought some 20%-off coupons!

What do you think of Britney going back to brunette? Is it just us, or does that look like a wig?

Britney sure seems happy since she started dating Jason. Maybe next time they go to Bed, Bath & Beyond, it'll be to sign up for the wedding registry!

Britney Spears and manager/boyfriend Jason Trawick went shopping at Bed, Bath & Beyond on Sunday.
