Heather Locklear has claimed she was “groped” by an actor whilst shooting a scene for The First Wives Club
The 58-year-old actress held an uncredited role in the 1996 movie, and has slammed one of the actors – whom she didn’t name – for doing more than he was directed to do during a scene in which he was supposed to touch her breast.
Heather says the actor was only supposed to put his hand on her chest, but he instead “outlined [her] areola with his finger” – something she insists wasn’t “in the script”.
Speaking during an appearance on Zach Braff and Donald Faison’s ‘Fake Doctors, Real Friends’ podcast, she said: “There was a couple of scenes that they cut out of me, and then the only scene that I had had no lines. One of the actors, we were at a funeral, and he was supposed to take his hand and touch my breast, and they show that.
“It was agh – gross. So I said: ‘Can you just take my name off the credits since now I don’t have any lines?’ So it was creditless.”
Zach jumped in to ask: “So, wait, you’re in ‘The First Wives Club’ but the only thing that happens is a man grabs your breast?”
And Heather responded: “He doesn’t grab it. He actually outlines my areola with his finger. It didn’t say that in the script. I was like [gasps]. I’m so glad they’re following his hand down because my face, my mouth is fallen open and I can’t believe it and don’t do it again. One take and let’s go.”
The Melrose Place star also insisted she was supposed to have a bigger role in the comedy movie, but they were cut from the final version
She added: “There was more to the part [than being groped]. I had filmed the bigger, bigger scenes. They just thought, I don’t know, maybe I was bad in it.”
