Eliza Dushku once slayed vampires on TV but now the actress wants to put a stake through the guys of One Direction! The ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ actress is furious she was booted from her hotel room to make space for the boys of 1D. Rude!
Eliza Dushku, 34, took to her social media to call out the boy band for taking up an entire floor of the hotel she is staying in, one that unfortunately includes her room! The actress is currently shooting the upcoming season of the Cinemax original series Banshee and has been living out of the Pittsburgh hotel room during filming. But One Direction is coming to town for a show Aug. 2, and they need LOTS of space!
The feisty star ranted “Don’t worry @OneDirection. It was super chill movin outta my hotel room so u can have the ENTIRE FLOOR I’ve been staying on for 2 months” on both her Twitter and Instagram on July 31. She even included a photo of all of her stuff packed up on a hotel dolly cart as she had to move floors. The “Dollhouse” star also made her feelings known with a series of hashtags, including “#OnLocationLife #HotelWars #ActorProblems #WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately #OneDirection Took 2 hrs this Friday afternoon before work.” She also hash tagged “Drag Me Down” but not in reference to the band’s new smash hit that dropped earlier in the day, but the drag for Eliza who had to spend her morning packing up her temporary home.
One Direction will be playing to a massive crowd of 65,000 fans at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Sunday Aug. 2. But apparently they need plenty of lead time to get their temporary housing in place. The band isn’t even in town on the day poor Eliza had to pack up as they’re performing a show that night at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
But while Eliza may be angry with the band, she’s probably the only one at the moment. The 1D nation rejoiced en masse after the guys just dropped a surprise new single “Drag Me Down,” their first new music since Zayn Malik abruptly left the band in March. The song set a new record on iTunes, going to number one less than an hour after it’s release July 31.
Don’t worry Eliza, it’s only temporary. The guys will be out of there by early next week as they move on to play at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford New Jersey on Aug. 5. Hopefully whatever New York City hotel they stay in won’t have any displaced celebrities as a result.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Eliza has the right to complain?
