Anna Faris claims late director Ivan Reitman ‘slapped my a**’ on set after not identifying him

Anna Faris has finally revealed the identity of the director who sexually harassed her on set after choosing not to do so in the early days of the #MeToo movement.

The 45-year-old actress has claimed that the late Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman punched me during the first day of production of the 2006 romantic comedy My Super Ex-Girlfriend.

She also claimed that Reitman — who died in his sleep at his home in Montecito, California, in February at age 75 — “screamed” at her, leaving her feeling “angry, hurt and humiliated.”

On Wednesday, Deadline reported that Faris is making the reveal in an upcoming episode of her podcast unqualified during an interview with Lena Dunham.

Faris said, “One of my most difficult movie experiences was with Ivan Reitman. I mean, the idea of ​​making a comedy under this reign of terror, he was a screamer. He would take someone down every day… and my first day it was me.”

She explained that she had to fight back tears during a not-so-great first interaction with Reitman because she arrived late on set due to an accident.

Dunham (pictured in LA on Saturday) responded to Faris’ claim: “I don’t think you’re the first to report that. And I’m sorry you had that experience. And no one intervened and said, “No?”

Faris replied, “No. It was, like, 2006.”

In October 2017, at the very beginning of the #MeToo movement, the House Bunny actress shared her personal story about sexual harassment in Hollywood.

one more time on her unqualified podcast Faris was joined by Arielle Kebbel of UnREAL to discuss sexual harassment and how men can help stop it in the workplace.

Anna recalled one time she was made to feel uncomfortable by a film director, who said, “I did a scene where I was on a ladder and I was supposed to get books off a shelf and he hit my ass in front of the crew so hard.

“And all I could do was giggle.” said the mother star.

“I remember looking around and I remember the crew members saying, ‘Wait, what are you going to do about that? That seemed weird.’ And so I rejected it.

“I was like, ‘Well, this is nothing. Like, it’s not that big of a deal. Buck up, Faris. Like, just giggle.’ But it made me feel small, he wouldn’t have done that to the chieftain.’

At the time, Faris (pictured in April 2019) said, “I was like, ‘Well, this is nothing. Like, it’s not that big of a deal. Buck up, Faris. Like, just giggle.’ But it made me feel small. He wouldn’t have done that to the chieftain. We’re conditioned to giggle’

“We’re conditioned to giggle,” she said.

“But also, if we did anything else, we’d be labeled a bitch or difficult. That would be the best circumstances. I think I’m laughing. It puts everyone at ease. That’s the defense mode you go in.”

Anna also revealed how she felt inferior to the director when she got the part.

“I remember that same director telling my agent, who told me I had great legs and that was one of the reasons I got hired,” she recalls.

Role: My Super Ex-Girlfriend played Uma Thurman and Luke Wilson (pictured center) and grossed $22.5 million in the US and a worldwide total of $61 million

“And listen, that’s a great compliment. I like my legs. But that kind of informed my entire experience with that whole project. I don’t think the male lead was hired because he had great legs. That’s why I felt I was hired because of these elements – not because of [talent].’
