What gives Jenna Ortega the impression that she can disparage her employer in public and get away with it? That’s what: everyone and everything.
This is the world we live in—punishment-free, cringing in horror, you-do-you, be-well.
The 20-year-old star of Netflix’s huge hit “Wednesday,” who considers herself to be a national treasure, recently claimed that her behavior at work was “unprofessional” on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast.
Yet Ortega wasn’t making amends for her transgressions with a tearful apology tour. Instead, she was praising her deplorable actions as virtues.
The actress, who also stars in “Scream VI,” talked about how she improved the script for “Wednesday” like an autocratic dictator and that the genuinely paid, unionized writers, owe her a debt of gratitude for improving their mindless schlock on the podcast.
As Ortega proudly recalled, “there were occasions on the set when I even became nearly unprofessional in a way, where I just started changing lines.” Such behavior would ordinarily result in termination for anyone else in a different line of work.

“The script supervisor believed I was on the right track, but when I had to meet with the writers, they would ask, ‘Wait, what happened to the scene?’ I would then have to go and justify why I was unable to go do various things.
Some of those include: “Is [Wednesday] involved in a love triangle? It was illogical. She says, “Oh, my God, I love it,” in a phrase about a dress she must wear to a school dance. I can’t believe I just said that ugh. I genuinely despise myself. I had to respond, “No.
You play Jenna in a poor “The Addams Family” spinoff, which is best known for its flailing-arms dance on TikTok. It doesn’t make any sense at all. You have obviously crossed a line and are no longer doing your job when the authors are asking you, “Wait, what happened to the scene?
Similar to Katherine Heigl’s petulance in the early seasons of “Grey’s Anatomy,” Ortega’s conceited bullshit is annoying. When the celebrity, then 29 years old, abruptly pulled herself out of the running for an Emmy Award in 2008, she was already well known for being tough.
Here we were given some other articles of Wednesday:

“I didn’t think I was given enough material this season to merit an Emmy nomination,” the author said. Also, I didn’t want to possibly deny an actor who had been given such resources the chance to pursue a career, she added, according to the LA Times.
A.k.a Everybody else around me is terrible, but I’m fantastic. Heigl made the decision to leave the program in 2010, and her career has, very appropriately, been in decline ever since.
She portrayed Mona Champagne in the 2015 movie “Home Sweet Hell,” which I just found out about. Who could forget the more contemporary films “Firefly Lane” or “The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature”? (Reply: essentially everyone.) Shonda Rhimes, the all-knowing creator of “Grey’s,” did not cry.
Four years later, Rhimes told the Hollywood Reporter while conducting publicity for her blockbuster show “Scandal,” “There are no Heigls in this situation,” adding, “I don’t put up with bulls – – t or ugly people. I can’t because I’m too busy.
Although many in the industry appear to be only too glad to tolerate Ortega, kudos to Shonda for not putting up with any fools or divas. So if your manager found you yelling at your coworkers while seated in her office chair and told you, “You’re 100% correct. You are now in charge!
Although he isn’t working on “Wednesday,” producer Steven DeKnight, whose resume includes “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” did have the guts to sort of criticize Ortega. He called her remarks “entitled” and “toxic” on Twitter, but he later had to retract the statement in response to a fan backlash.
Ortega is “great,” and everyone can benefit from the controversy. Then, DeKnight tweeted an apology. In Hollywood, Broadway, and the opera, diva behavior is nothing new, but it used to be reserved for highly gifted individuals who had been working in the field for years.
Maria Callas’ anger was renowned. Only four years earlier, “Network” actress Faye Dunaway was tossing objects at “Tea at Five” cast members in a rage (she got canned). With the passion of Evita, Patti LuPone would lash out against Andrew Lloyd Webber, iPhones, and lack of masks.
