Agents don't like to learn things about their celeb clients from the tabloids, and they especially don't like to find out that their biggest client -- whom they've been selling all over town for feature film roles -- is pregnant.
"Frustration" is a word being used around the offices of William Morris, the agency that reps Britney Spears. "It came as a shock," said one insider.
Spears' agents have become increasingly frustrated about how to handleAmerica's favorite popstar. "She doesn't need the money. So there's not theusual desperate drive on her part," the source said. "She's constantly changingher mind. One minute she wants to be an actress, the next minute she wants tofly to Maui to record a new album."
A W.M. employee told TMZ: "It seems like she's not sure she knows what shewants to do, which makes being her agent frustrating."
People in the agency are saying that Spears' pregnancy has derailed a lot ofplans. Sources say now that Spears is pregnant she's not pursuing her actingcareer with the same fervor, even scuttling her bid to land the role of alifetime -- playing Janis Joplin. One source said: "She really wanted to do itbut she knows she can't."
We're told the Joplin role was offered to Lindsay Lohan but she passed, and nowproducers are eying Kate Hudson.
