Anna Faris Made Allegations Against Ivan Reitman
In an interview with Lena Dunham on her podcast titled the unqualified podcast, Anna made allegations and some revelations against the late Ivan Reitman. According to her, these allegations happened in 2006 when they were filming My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
In the interview, Anna told Lena that she had had experience filming with Ivan in 2006. Anna said, “One of my hardest film experiences was with Ivan Reitman. I mean, the idea of attempting to make a comedy under this reign of terror … He was a yeller. He would bring down somebody every day, and my first day, it was me.”
Anna also said she was subjected to sexual harassment by Ivan on set. “I was doing a scene where I was on a ladder and I was supposed to be taking books off a shelf and he slapped my a– in front of the crew so hard. And all I could do was giggle.” She told Lena. She further describes the time that he slapped her butt, leaving her feeling “angry, hurt, and humiliated.”
When asked how the crew responded, she went on to say, “I remember looking around and I remember seeing the crew members being like, ‘Wait, what are you going to do about that? That seemed weird.’ And that’s how I dismissed it. I was like, ‘Well, this isn’t a thing. 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 lead male.”
On October 19, 2022, Gavin Pole, an executive producer of the movie told Deadline that “I never saw that incident or heard about it, but I would not have any reason to dispute Anna’s account, either. If Anna says it happened, I believe her. If it had happened in front of me, I certainly would have confronted Ivan about it. I’m sad to think Anna was demeaned in that way.”
