Speaking on her podcast not qualifiedThe actress revealed that Reitman “slapped me on the butt” during production and on her first day “yelled” at her, causing her to feel “angry, hurt and humiliated.”
During a candid conversation with actress and director Lena Dunham, Faris said, “One of my most difficult cinematic experiences was with Evan Reitman. I mean, the idea of trying to do a comedy under this, like Reign of Horror, was screaming. He would take someone down every day… and it was my first day. ”
During an extensive discussion with Dunham about the various behaviors on the set, Faris said she had to fight back tears during her turbulent first interaction with Reitman, who passed away in February, having been late for her appointment due to an accident.
In response to Faris’ claim that Reitman slapped her behind her, Dunham said, “I don’t think you were the first person to report it. And I’m so sorry you had this experience. And no one stepped in and said ‘No?”
“No. It was 2006,” Faris answers.
curb your enthusiasm exec Gavin Polone, one of the producers at My ex girlfriend is supershe told Deadline this morning: “I’ve never seen this incident, or heard of it, but I have no reason to object to Anna’s account either. If Anna said this happened, I believe her. If it had happened in front of me, I would certainly have confronted Evan about it.” I am sad to think that Anna was humiliated in this way.”
Fares described the incident in the past, but did not reveal the name of the director previously. Back in 2017, in the early days of the #MeToo movement, the actress said of the experience, “I was doing a scene where I was on a ladder and I was supposed to take books off the shelf slapping me…in front of the crew so hard. All I could do was laugh. “.
Faris said she didn’t know how to act, so she turned to humor as a defense mechanism.
“I remember looking around and I remember seeing crew members like, ‘Wait, what are you going to do about that?'” That seemed strange. This is how I refused. I was like, “Okay, that’s nothing. Like, it’s no big deal. I love you knight. Like, just giggle. But he made me feel small. He wouldn’t have done that to the main guy.”
At the same time, the actress also claimed that the director told her agent that she was hired because of her “big legs”.
Faris revealed, “I remember the same manager said to Lukele, who told me, that my legs are big and that was one of the reasons I hired.” “And listen, that’s a great compliment. I love my legs. But that kind of communicated my entire experience with this whole project. I don’t think the champ was hired because he had great legs. So I felt like an employee because of these items – not because of [talent]. “
Reitman is famous for hitting hits like the first two Ghostbusters Movies, twinsAnd the Kindergarten And the junior. Produced on films including animal houseAnd the crowded place And the private parts. The distinguished Czech-born Canadian filmmaker passed away this year at the age of 75.
