As more and more actors distance themselves from Woody Allen in the wake of allegations of sexual abuse levelled against him by daughter Dylan Farrow, Lily Tomlin discusses her own experience working with the controversial director in the latest edition of “Hiking with Kevin”.
Hosted by Kevin Nealon, the “SNL” alum is joined by a different celeb in each episode of his YouTube talk show as they enjoy a hike in the Hollywood hills.
Hiking with Nealon, Tomlin recalls working with Allen in the 1991 mystery-thriller “Shadows and Fog”, revealing that her interactions with him were minimal.
“I hardly saw him. He had a nursery somewhere on one of the floors… and Woody and Mia would walk to the set holding hands… so I came back and I said oh great, what a great couple they were,” she said of the then couple, who welcomed son Ronan Farrow in 1987.
“I’m totally ignorant of what’s going on and then about two days later, the proverbial.”
During the hike, the 80-year-old “Grace and Frankie” star also opens up about her on-set freakout with “I Heart Huckabees” director David O. Russell, which became a viral sensation.
“I lost it with good cause,” she says of the infamous moment.
“We were jammed into that old Citroen,” she added, admitting, “I said a lot of vulgar stuff.”
Asked by Nealon whether she regretted what she said, Tomlin joked, “I regretted it when I saw someone had videotaped it.”
The sixth season of “Grace and Frankie” debuts on Jan. 15.
