She visitor starred within the pilot, an episode of tv titled “Good to Ho” that aired in November 2022. Wilson performed the grown-up model of a child character from the unique 1994 movie. “Tim Allen was such a bitch,” Wilson mentioned on the podcast, saying that she had beforehand “buried this” story as a result of a producer on the sequence is “an amazing buddy” and since her children “cherished the films.”
The actor then broke down the scene she filmed with Allen, through which her character begins throwing issues at his Santa, pondering he’s a burglar. “[He] goes over to the producer who’s standing 4 toes from me and goes, and I hear him, he goes, ‘You gotta inform her to cease stepping on my traces,’” Wilson mentioned. “The producer turns to me with horror on his face and has to stroll one foot to me and he goes, ‘Um, Tim would ask that you just cease stepping on his traces.’”

After Wilson accomplished one shot of her close-up protection, she mentioned, Allen promptly left the set with out alerting his fellow co-stars or crew members. “It’s the top, and Tim Allen goes, ‘Leaving!,’ takes his Santa cape, picks it up and drops it on the ground and walks out,” she mentioned. “And so they hustle in his stand-in; beautiful man, who was a lot nicer to behave towards. Persons are scurrying to select up his velvet Santa coat. He’s a bitch. And that is the perfect… I can’t say who mentioned this. This was somebody that I have no idea, maybe within the crew. [He or she] breezes previous me and simply goes, ‘You’re seeing him on day.’”
This isn’t the primary time Allen has discovered himself on the naughty checklist for alleged on-set misconduct. In January of this yr, his House Enchancment co-star Pamela Anderson alleged in her memoir that on the primary day she filmed the ABC sitcom, Allen “opened his gown and flashed me shortly—utterly bare beneath. He mentioned it was solely truthful, as a result of he had seen me bare. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.” In an electronic mail to Self-importance Honest on the time, Allen denied the allegation through his publicist, saying, “No, it by no means occurred. I’d by no means do such a factor.”
