‘Obsessed’ Producer Will Packer: Would Beyoncé Think She’s ‘All That’?

Before he’d met her, Hollywood wunderkind Will Packer wondered if Beyoncé might cop an attitude.

"She's really a sweet human being inside and out," Will tells us of Beyoncé (above).

"She's really a sweet human being inside and out," Will tells us of Beyoncé (above).

And who could blame him?

The Naughty Girl singer has won seven Grammy Awards, six Billboard Music Awards, six MTV Music Video Awards and six Soul Train Music Awards.

What’s more, according to the lastest Forbes figures, between her music, fashion and endorsement deals, last year she raked in a whopping $80 million.

Interviewed on Inside Urban Hollywood, the 34-year-old Rainforest Films chairman discuss- es working with Beyoncé on her new thriller, Obsessed, which he produced – and she executive-produced.

“We’d already begun shooting the film before Beyoncé’s first days, and it was one of those things where we didn’t know how it would be when she showed up, because everything was going really, really smoothly,” Will, whose other big-screen credits include Three Can Play That Game, with Vivica Fox, and This Christmas, with Delroy Lindo and Mekhi Phifer, tells host Tanya Kersey.

“So it was like, ‘OK, are we going to have Beyoncé show up with 50 people and fans and paparazzi and ‘diva’ attitude – and is it going to rock the boat of what we got going?’

“And she didn’t at all. She came in ready to work. Tremendous work ethic,” he adds.

“For her, it was about elevating the material. She didn’t shy away from some of the more challenging aspects of the role in terms of emoting.

“Nor did she shy away from the physical aspects of the role. Nor did she shy away from the work she had to do with the other actors.

“She came in ready to play.”
