Actor says SNL creator Lorne Michaels pushed him to have sex with director in reverse #MeToo

In an odd #MeToo confession that flips the attached feminist narrative somewhat, actor Chris Kattan claims in his book that producer Lorne Michaels once pressured him to have sex with a director.

And, no, we are not talking about a male director.

In his memoir, “Baby, Don’t Hurt Me,” the Saturday Night Live alum said that director Amy Heckerling came onto him and he rebuffed her sexual advances, according to the New York Post.

Heckerling, director of the teen romance “Clueless,” was slated to direct the comedy film “A Night At The Roxbury,” which Kattan would star in, and Kattan, who was 27 at the time, said Michaels called him the next day and told him she was thinking about backing out of the project.

And Michaels, the creator of SNL, was “furious,” the actor wrote.

“Paramount would only do the movie if [Heckerling] signed on as a director, not as a producer,” Michaels said, according to Kattan, who wrote he was told if he “wanted to make sure the movie happened, then [he] had to keep Amy happy.”

“Chris, I’m not saying you have to f–k her, but it wouldn’t hurt,” Michaels allegedly said.

An SNL spokesperson denied Kattan’s claims, telling the Post. “This did not happen.”

Kattan said in the book that while he was attracted to Heckerling, he “was very afraid of the power she and Lorne wielded over my career.”

Ultimately, Kattan claimed he had a consensual sexual encounter on the couch in her office.

“She thought it would be fun to have sex on Lorne’s desk,” he wrote. “Wow, what a great idea! Jesus Christ. I said a polite ‘F–k, no!’ to that, so we ended up going to her office and having sex on … yep, you guessed it, the ‘casting couch.’”

As it turned out, John Fortenberry ended up directing “A Night At The Roxbury,” and Heckerling received producer credits, according to the Post. An outcome that does not support the scenario Kattan lays out.

But, amid the left weaponizing the #MeToo movement, will there be the same outcry over a male actor saying he was pressured into having sex with a female director as we have seen in reverse circumstances?

Social media users were somewhat skeptical that Kattan’s story will receive the same support than female actresses have seen.

Where are all the social justice warriors declaring that he has a right to be believed?
