SNL alum Chris Kattan has sensationally claimed that he felt compelled to sleep with the director of a proposed comedy in an attempt to keep her tied to production.
In his new memoir, Baby Do not Hurt Me: Stories and Scars from Saturday Night Live, Kattan accuses SNL boss Lorne Michaels of pressuring him to have sex with A Night with Roxbury's then director Amy Heckerling.
The comedian, who played alongside Will Ferrell in what is considered the golden generation of SNL talent, says he initially refused but eventually had sex with Heckerling in her office about what he described as the & # 39; casting couch & # 39; .

& # 39; I was attracted to Amy, but at the same time very scared of the power she and Lorne exercised in my career, & # 39; said Kattan, who suffered from drug addiction after a neck injury on the set of SNL.
However, according to Decider.com, according to one source, Kattan & # 39; s version of the events is incorrect.
The memoirs tell how Kattan and Ferrell started pre-production in 1997 at A Night at the Roxbury, a feature film based on their popular sketch,
At that time, Clueless & Heckerling was attached to immediately and one evening while she was working late, she asked him if they wanted to have sex.
& # 39; I was shocked. Was she joking? & # 39; excerpts from the book state.
The next day, Kattan said that he received a phone call from Michaels, who had signed to produce the feature, but said that Paramount would only do Heckerling's production as a director and that he wanted to make sure the film would take place. he) had to keep Amy happy. & # 39;
According to Kattan, Michaels added: & # 39; Chris, I'm not saying you should fuck her, but it wouldn't hurt. & # 39;
& # 39; That seemed crazy, & # 39; said Kattan about Michaels' warnings. He added that he was also warned about the suggestion of co-star Ferrell & # 39; or someone else & # 39; hold.
Kattan eventually had sex with Heckerling and wrote: & # 39; The last thing I wanted was someone Lorne & # 39; career career & heard about me. To this day, when I think of that conversation with Lorne, I still feel disgustingly pathetic. & # 39;
He claims that a few weeks later, after they shared a kiss with her at a postal party, the couple finally had sex on her office desk.
According to Kattan, Michaels added: & # 39; Chris, I'm not saying you should fuck her, but it wouldn't hurt & # 39;
& # 39; She thought it would be nice to have sex on Lorne & # 39; s desk, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; I said a polite & # 39; F ***, no! & # 39; that & # 39 ;, so we finally went to her office and had sex on … yep, you guessed it, the & # 39; casting couch & # 39;. & # 39;
Elsewhere in the memoir, Kattan discusses his addiction to opioids, fueled by breaking his neck on the set of SNL.
& # 39; It was embarrassing, & # 39; he admitted. He said that his arm muscles were atrophy and that his nerve endings were so badly damaged that several operations were needed to repair.
& # 39; Years ago it was a different era and a faux pas to tell about things, & # 39; he added. & # 39; I wanted to keep working. & # 39;
Kattan & # 39; s injury also led to his opioid addiction. & # 39; It was a tough fight, & # 39; he said. & # 39; You feel blessed as you get through it. I hope the reader gets out of the book that life is worth it. & # 39;
