It looked like Olympic diver Tian Liang was getting some practice at being a celebrity while in Hong Kong recently.

We saw him smiling for the cameras and answering awkward questions about fellow diver and rumoured one-time girlfriend Guo Jingjing (pictured). But CitySeen has found out that Tian was also working on that most important aspect celebrityhood - the temperamental attitude.

A source told CitySeen that Tian, during the middle of a styling session for a recent photo shoot, 'got into a huff all of a sudden and ran off into his changing room'. He eventually came back out to finish the job, but only after he was calmed by his minders.

Our little birdie didn't explain what it was that got Tian all worked up, and one incident doesn't necessarily reflect his character. Maybe it was after Tian found out he had been kicked off the national team.
