In brief…

  • Wilson had a minor role in "The Santa Clauses" pilot before exiting the show
  • The actor says Allen complained to producers about her interrupting his lines
  • The feud reminds other epic Hollywood on-set conflicts over the years

The latest Hollywood feud has erupted between Tim Allen and his “The Santa Clauses” co-star Casey Wilson, who accused him of “bad behavior” on set on an episode of her “Real Housewives” themed podcast. Wilson claimed Allen was “such a b——” and “so f—-ing rude,” never making eye contact or saying anything after yelling “Leaving!” and dramatically dropping his Santa cape on the floor. She also said the producer had to gently tell her to stop interrupting Allen’s lines, Variety reports.

While filming a scene where Wilson throws objects at Allen’s Santa character, she says “He goes over to the producer who is standing four feet from me and goes, and I hear him, he goes, ‘You got to tell her to stop stepping on my lines.’” The tense environment made everyone “walking on eggshells,” she recalled. A crew member told her “You’re seeing him on a good day.”

The latest feud recalls other epic Hollywood conflicts like Charlize Theron vs. Tom Hardy on “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Harrison Ford confirming his clashes with Brad Pitt on “The Devil’s Own,” and the still-icy relations between “Sex and the City” stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall.
