Jason Priestley has taken aim at his former Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star Shannen Doherty in his new memoir, criticizing the actress for her allegedly bratty behaviour.
The actor has spilled all about the behind-the-scenes drama on the set of the hit teen series, revealing Doherty began behaving badly before the 1990s show had even begun to air.
In an excerpt of his book Jason Priestley: A Memoir, published in Us Weekly magazine, he recalls taking a private flight with her from Los Angeles to New York to meet with advertisers, only for Doherty to reportedly complain during the whole journey.
He writes, “I could not believe my ears at Shannen’s very first words after she boarded. Her butt had barely hit her seat before she said loudly to the PR person, ’Really? A town car? You send a town car to take me to the airport, not a limo?’ She sighed a very put-upon sigh. I laughed, as I couldn’t really tell if Shannen was kidding or not.
“But that was just the beginning. I looked on, becoming more uneasy by the minute as she began bitching about the short notice and the food on board and the temperature in the cabin and everything else.”
Meanwhile, Priestley has also lifted the lid on his encounters with other big celebrities, revealing he received romance advice from Bradley Cooper while shooting 2004 film I Want to Marry Ryan Banks, and once shared a marijuana joint with Sir Mick Jagger at an awards show afterparty in Dublin, Ireland back in 2000.
He recalls, “Mick Jagger and (ex-wife) Jerry Hall (were) lounging on a bed, passing a joint back and forth... (My friend) said, ’Hey Mick, pass it around.’ ’So sorry, love,’ he said. Then he got up and handed the joint to me I took a drag and passed it.”
