Pamela Adlon has spoken out about Louis C.K. and those sexual misconduct claims, admitting the whole thing was “so devastating.”
Adlon, 52, who frequently collaborated with C.K., 51, until she severed ties with him after the allegations came to light, told Vanity Fair of her comedy “Better Things”: “All of a sudden, he’s gone, my show is dangling from a precipice.”
“It was so huge. And it was so devastating.”
She added that “[t]here were an extraordinary amount of people who were affected” by the claims, before she continued to say of having to work on the show from that point by herself, “I’ve never been in a writers’ room, let alone run a writers’ room.”
“Sitting down, meeting writers, reading their stuff — how do you do this? Is this person going to get along with this person? It’s like making a table at a f**king Bar Mitzvah. My mind was being cracked open every day in a new way.”
Adlon’s latest comments come after she released a statement about the disgraced comedian admitting to the sexual misconduct.
She said back in November, “I have to say something. It’s so important. My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behaviour by my friend and partner, Louis C.K.”
“I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward. I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family. I am processing and grieving and hope to say more as soon as I am able.”
