In a surprising revelation, actress Casey Wilson has openly shared her not-so-pleasant experience working with Tim Allen on the set of ‘The Santa Clauses,’ the sequel to the beloved ’90s classic ‘The Santa Clause.’ Wilson, known for her transparency, didn’t hold back in expressing her frustration with Allen, describing it as the “single worst experience” she’s ever had with a co-star.
During an episode of her podcast, ‘Bitch Sesh,’ Wilson candidly stated, “Tim Allen was such a b*tch. It was truly the worst experience I’ve ever had with a co-star.”
Wilson went on to recount a specific incident during a scene where she and Allen were supposed to interact. In the scene, Wilson’s character, mistaking Allen’s character for a burglar, throws objects at him. However, according to Wilson, Allen took issue with her performance and expressed his dissatisfaction to the producer, who was just a few feet away.
“He goes over to the producer, who is standing four feet from me, and says, ‘You gotta tell her to stop stepping on my lines,'” Wilson recalled. The producer, with a horrified expression, had to walk merely one foot to relay the message to Wilson, saying, “Um, Tim would like you to stop stepping on his lines.”
The uncomfortable atmosphere on set was palpable, with Wilson revealing that Allen’s demeanor made everyone feel like they were “walking on eggshells.” She mentioned an incident where Allen, after filming, exhibited rude behavior by avoiding eye contact and remaining silent. The discomfort reached its peak when Allen abruptly left the set after a scene, leaving his stand-in to take his place, who, as Wilson noted, was “much nicer to act against.”
To add a humorous yet telling detail about the aftermath of Allen’s departure, Wilson shared, “People were rushing to pick up his velvet Santa coat. He’s a b*tch. And here’s the best part… I won’t reveal who said this, but it was someone I don’t know, possibly a crew member. This person breezed past me and simply said, ‘You’re seeing him on a good day.'”
