Turnoffs for Jenna Elfman: bratty stars



PASADENA, Calif. - Turnoffs for Jenna Elfman: bratty stars.

The former "Dharma & Greg" star, who's in a new comedy about a single woman that will premiere on CBS this spring, says she's definitely not impressed with the attitudes of some people she sees in Hollywood.

"A lot of my peers that I've worked with, they're not on time," she said. "They think it's absolutely OK to have attitude and treat people like crap. And they think nothing of it. They have a sense of some sort of entitlement, where I don't know where that comes from."

Maybe it has something to do with not being brought up with much discipline, said Elfman, 34.

Her comments to reporters Wednesday briefly made Rob Hanning, executive producer of their new show, "Courting Alex," panic.

"I just want to give you the opportunity to clarify that you were not referring to anyone actually in our cast," he said.

"No," Elfman replied, "our cast is truly beautiful."
