Actress TARYN MANNING was extremely worried when she starred alongside EMINEM in the hit movie 8 MILE - because she feared he'd mock her for having previously worked with BRITNEY SPEARS.
Manning appeared onscreen with pop beauty Spears in the critically-panned film CROSSROADS before landing a role in Eminem's gritty drama.
But after celebrating her casting in the latter project, Manning became deeply concerned that Eminem would look down on her for having worked with Spears, who has been the subject of much mockery in the rapper's music.
Manning says, "I asked Eminem, when I was working with him, if he cared that I just did a movie with Britney. He was like, 'Britney's cool. I just kinda make fun of her for fun.'"
