Is Sarah Michelle really a bitch?

Almost as much as the legions of fans who camped out for hours (some overnight, we’re told) in hopes of getting into the Cinerama Dome for Thursday’s marquee Paley Center event. In a gracious gesture, shortly before it was time to go on stage, Sarah Michelle Gellar corralled the troops to go outside and sign autographs for some of the stalwart Buffy-ites.

Ok so this isnt to big of news but i know alot of people on here think Sarah is a snob/diva/bitch. So when I read this article id thought i'd post it, it basically saying she made everyone go outside and sign for the people who had been in the stand-by line and couldn't get in =)

i don't know why but she still seems like a bitch and i like btvs
nereem 22nd-Mar-2008 04:57 pm (UTC)
Why is she a bitch? Why do people assume she is?
afireinside27 22nd-Mar-2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
yes, idk why.
osnapitsrj 22nd-Mar-2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
stupid rumors.
tube_fiend 22nd-Mar-2008 05:02 pm (UTC)
It's a long, involved story, centering on her relationship with Alyson Hannigan and some comments made by a fired and disgruntled stunt coordinator.

Honestly, though, a lot of the fans just decided to hate her because they felt she thought she was "too good" for the fans because she never showed up for fan conventions. But the girl worked like crazy hours and a lot of it was intense physical training. Most stars don't have to show up for fan conventions. But to sci-fi fans, this is a big deal. Add to that a rumor that she was overheard calling the Buffy fans weird, and people went apeshit on her.

It was really a lot of ridiculousness and fandom overreaction, imo/
nereem 22nd-Mar-2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
I read in SFX magazine once that Alyson did not get on with Julie Benz and that she wasn't particularly nice to Alyson. I didn't know that Alyson and Sarah didn't get on?

I was a huge Buffy fan and I go regularly to cons, and to be honest- there are a lot of wierd fans out there ^_^

Fandom overreacting? Oh that NEVER happens ;)
radaya 22nd-Mar-2008 05:06 pm (UTC)
well, buffy fans are kinda weird. i'm proud to say it.

i mean, i love sci-fi, but some people get way too into it and just assume the actors should be at everything! i think that's crazy.

also, i love your icon. aly needs to have a cute little red haired baby ASAP
neaira 22nd-Mar-2008 05:06 pm (UTC)
Buffy fans ARE weird. lol
icedteabb 22nd-Mar-2008 05:11 pm (UTC)
all sci-fi maniacs are crazy
carrie1982 22nd-Mar-2008 05:42 pm (UTC)
lol there are some crazy ass people in fandoms.
dorkgirl_ 22nd-Mar-2008 05:40 pm (UTC)
Because any women who's professional about her job, speaks her mind, and isn't best friends with the rest of the cast automatically gets dubbed a 'bitch'.
afireinside27 22nd-Mar-2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
ilu smg.
untoldsarcasm 22nd-Mar-2008 04:59 pm (UTC)
hot icon!
pink__sparklies 22nd-Mar-2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
I can't stand her and I'm not sure why. I can't even watch things that she's in.
tube_fiend 22nd-Mar-2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
Eh, I don't know.

I mean, I don't think she is a bitch, but I don't think this blurb is quite right.

It seems like someone is taking Trent from Pink is the New Blog's report on the night, and fudging the facts a bit. Because it sounds exactly like what he wrote. Except for one little detail - he said he didn't remember who corralled everyone into going outside, but that SMG did go outside with everyone else.
charmedoks 22nd-Mar-2008 05:00 pm (UTC)
ikr. i'm pissedddd
osnapitsrj 22nd-Mar-2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
im guessing maybe they had to be working, they both are leads in shows.
tube_fiend 22nd-Mar-2008 09:37 pm (UTC)
David Boreanaz was never scheduled to come, and they could have easily fit this into his Bones schedule back when it was first announced. Supposedly, he said he had a "family engagement," but that could easily have been made up by the fans. He is very well known for wanting nothing to do with his vampire past.
Alyson Hannigan was scheduled to come, and HIMYM was not filming this week. No one knows why she bailed. :(
tube_fiend 22nd-Mar-2008 09:34 pm (UTC)
David was never schedules to come. There were rumors that he videotaped a message to fans, but that proved to be false.
Alyson, however, was scheduled to be there. No explanation was given for her absence - or for Eliza Dushku's, who was also scheduled to be there.
Neither Aly not Eliza should have been working. Ausiello @ TVGuide said How I Met Your Mother had the week off, and Eliza's new show doesn't start production until April. So it's a bit odd they didn't show. Still, we know Eliza is still very tight with Joss (since they are doing a new show together), so presumably she didn't skip because of bad blood. Might as well presume Alyson didn't skip due to bad blood, either.

David Boreanaz, however, is VERY well known for trying to distance himself from all things Angel. TV reporters mention all the time how he gets nasty if they bring it up.
Supposedly, he had a "family engagement" and that's why he didn't come. But that sounds like another fandom originated rumor. It seems far more likely that he just said no.
charmedoks 22nd-Mar-2008 05:00 pm (UTC)
she is not a bitch.
bussineskitty 22nd-Mar-2008 05:03 pm (UTC)
im gonna go with yes she is most likely a bitch
bangkokladyboys 22nd-Mar-2008 05:03 pm (UTC)
idk she never seemed like a huge bitch to me. Not overly friendly but not Edward Norton either.
captaintrash 22nd-Mar-2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
I think she's probably grown up a lot since Buffy. I never thought she was a mega-bitch or anything, but there was always something about her that seemed a little "I'm too good for you weird nerds". Obviously, she's gotten over any snobbery she may have had regarding embracing her fanbase.
ontheqt from an acting perspective22nd-Mar-2008 05:13 pm (UTC)

it's probably not snobbery..but when you're just barely starting out, and now can't get work b/c of one role you did..you probably would be a little annoyed.
captaintrash Re: from an acting perspective22nd-Mar-2008 05:19 pm (UTC)
Um, I think you may be forgetting her stunning turn as Katheryn Merteuil in Cruel Intentions.

Seriously though, I get what you mean. I meant more that she was perceived as bitchy/snobby before, but that in general it seems that the fans are accepting her and giving her more of a chance now.
rabbitncavylove 22nd-Mar-2008 08:13 pm (UTC)
I don't know .. she started on All My Children and got an emmy. She always spoke positively about being on a soap when some others won't talk about it.
nodisrespect 22nd-Mar-2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
idk whether or not she is a bitch but ive always felt she cannot act for shit
larrylurker 22nd-Mar-2008 05:06 pm (UTC)
lol at the "Is she a bitch, N/Y?" poll in this post
watermeloncholy 22nd-Mar-2008 06:01 pm (UTC)
Seriously, so fucking dumb.
bizarrre 22nd-Mar-2008 05:09 pm (UTC)
idk is SMG is but as i keep saying, emma caufield is
captaintrash 22nd-Mar-2008 05:31 pm (UTC)
omg spill
yumesuke 22nd-Mar-2008 05:58 pm (UTC)
My friend told me that, no specifics she was at one of those convention things and Emma was really weird and bitchy.
714daze 22nd-Mar-2008 05:11 pm (UTC)
no offense but during the reunion it was quite apparent that the rest of the cast sans james seth and michelle did not care for her
watermeloncholy 22nd-Mar-2008 05:53 pm (UTC)
lol no it wasn't. Amber Benson for example, gets along great with her etc. Nicky has always gotten on with her as well.

Way to assume shit...
714daze 22nd-Mar-2008 05:57 pm (UTC)
yes it was! i didn't assume anything. you can just tell. do you have to stick up for sarah for everything? you are so fucking stupid. one can't have an opinion about how it LOOKED in front of their face? and you were there?
tube_fiend 22nd-Mar-2008 09:43 pm (UTC)
According to Nicholas Brendon's red carpet interview, SMG is the only one he sees from time to time. They certainly seemed fine with each other.

Even presuming she really doesn't get along with everyone else - and I think that's a bit of a leap, because, by all accounts she does get on just fine with Joss and Amber - that still gives us NB, James, SG, and MT. 4 of the 7 other actors there.

I don't think not getting along with every single one of your coworkers makes someone a bitch. It just makes them a normal person.
go3x 22nd-Mar-2008 11:41 pm (UTC)
Oooh, you 'can tell', how did you do that? were you privy to their conversation beyond the convention?
arcadiaego 23rd-Mar-2008 01:26 am (UTC)
Maybe they're the ones with the problem then, you never know. (Not that I have ever heard tell that Nick and Amber are anything but friendly with her, for example.)

Why don't we ever get these stories of DRAMA for shows with mainly male leads?
opusdeihohoho 22nd-Mar-2008 05:12 pm (UTC)
i miss michelle when she was harriet.
captaintrash 22nd-Mar-2008 05:21 pm (UTC)
omg me too :(
