Pamela Anderson doubled down on her claim that Tim Allen flashed his penis at her while filming “Home Improvement.”
The “Baywatch” alum acknowledged his vehement denial that such an incident ever occurred and insisted he had no other option but to repudiate the allegation.
“He has to deny it because look at the times we’re in,” she told ET Canada. “If he said, ‘Oh yeah, I did that…’ he’d be — a lot of these stories are just the tip of the iceberg.”
Anderson, 55, first made the allegation about Allen, 69, in her new memoir, “Love, Pamela,” writing that the actor “opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath.”
Anderson claimed Allen had told her it was “only fair” he did so because “he had seen [her] naked,” most likely referring to her first Playboy cover in 1989.
“[He said,] ‘Now we’re even.’ I laughed uncomfortably,” she recalled.
The “Santa Clause” star swiftly denied the allegation, saying in a statement to Variety, “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing.”
The former Playboy model was 23 years old when she began playing Lisa the Tool Girl on the ABC sitcom. Allen, who starred as Tim “The Toolman” Taylor, was 37 at the time of the alleged incident.
Shortly after her memoir excerpt went viral, Anderson defended Allen’s alleged action.
“Tim is a comedian, it’s his job to cross the line. I’m sure he had no bad intentions,” the actress wrote in a text message to Variety, per her cover story published in January.
“Times have changed, though,” the text continued. “I doubt anyone would try that post #MeToo. It’s a new world.”
