Hollywood veteran Tim Allen has been accused of “rude” behavior on the set of his Disney+ series “The Santa Clauses” by his co-star, Casey Wilson.
The actress disclosed that it happened while filming the series, adding that Allen also exhibited a prima donna attitude towards other crew members.
Earlier in the year, Allen was accused by former Playboy model Pamela Anderson of flashing his junk at her while filming “Home Improvement.”
‘Tim Allen Was Such A B—-’
Speaking on a recent episode of her “Bitch Sesh,” Wilson opened up about having the worst of times while on the set of Disney+’s “The Santa Clauses” with her co-star Tim Allen.
She shared that he reported her to the producer for allegedly “stepping” on his lines during a scene when she was supposed to throw stuff at him. This theatrical term refers to someone interrupting or speaking over another person’s lines during a performance.
“So I’m throwing things at him. [He] goes over to the producer who is standing four feet from me and goes, and I hear him, he goes, ‘You gotta tell her to stop stepping on my lines,’” Wilson recalled, per US Weekly.
She added, “The producer turns to me with horror on his face and has to walk one foot to me, and he goes, ‘Um, Tim would ask that you stop stepping on his lines.’”
Not one to mince her words, Wilson slammed the actor, saying he was “such a b—.” She further described her time with him as the “single worst” experience she has ever had with a co-star.
‘Everybody Was Walking On Eggshells’
According to Willson, Allen was “so f—– rude” and his behavior made her feel “so uncomfortable.” She went on to highlight that Allen’s rude behavior extended beyond her, affecting other crew members on the set.
Everybody was reportedly “walking on eggshells” whenever he was on set, and he would often give off a prima donna attitude, something that his stand-in never did.
As to why she chose to talk about the incident now, Wilson explained it was because she’s “great” friends with a producer on the series and didn’t want to tank the ratings of the show just because of Allen’s attitude.
She added that her children “loved the movies,” seemingly suggesting that she did not want to spoil their memories about the Christmas movie franchise.
Tim Allen Was Previously Accused Of Acting Inappropriately On Set
In the meantime, Allen has yet to react to the accusations leveled against him by Wilison. However, this is not the first time he has come under fire for allegedly acting inappropriately on set.
Former Playboy star Pamela Anderson claimed in her memoir “Love, Pamela” that the actor flashed his junk at her while they were on the set of “Home Improvement” back in 1991. At the time, Anderson was 23, while Allen was 37.
“On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely n—- underneath,” an excerpt of her book read.
She added, “He said it was only fair because he had seen me n—-. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.”
At the time, director Ryan White also backed up Anderson’s claim in an interview with Variety.
“I totally believe Pamela because I think she’s always honest in everything — about her own shortcomings, but also about other people’s,” White told the publication.
Tim Allen Denies Ever Flashing His Genitalia
Following Anderson’s claim swirling online, Allen vehemently denied that the act ever happened.
“No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing,” said the actor who played the lead role of Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor in “Home Improvement.” The show aired from 1991 to 1999 and was one of the most popular sitcoms of its time.
Later on, Anderson came out to say that she bore no ill will toward Allen for the incident, adding that he probably never had any “bad intentions.”
“Tim is a comedian; it’s his job to cross the line. I’m sure he had no bad intentions,” she said. “Times have changed, though. I doubt anyone would try that post #MeToo. It’s a new world.”
