Chris Kattan revealed in his book Baby, Don’t Hurt Me that he felt pressured to have sex with director Amy Heckerling by both Amy and Lorne Michaels during the pre-production period of A Night At The Roxbury’s. Chris wrote that after he rejected the idea of having sex with Amy, Lorne told him that Paramount would not make the movie with her as director, and it “wouldn’t hurt” to fuck her. (Amy ended up not directing A Night At The Roxbury but stayed on as producer.)
Amy’s daughter Mollie Heckerling (who happens to be the love child of Harold Ramis and Amy Heckerling) defended her mom saying that “the affair” started well into the movie’s production and her mom broke off an engagement to Bronson Pinchot (aka Balki from Perfect Strangers) to be with Chris. Mollie also stated that her mom is a very private person and would never comment on this messiness.
Well….Amy Heckerling has decided to not be a “very private person” anymore to comment on the claims we all heard a couple of months ago. And I guess it took her a couple of months to figure out how to eloquently respond in an eloquent way and she did just that by calling Chris a nut with an idiot book.
According to The Daily Beast Amy had this to say about the Chris Kattan and his “idiot book.”
So I know this is a little awkward but I have to ask about a story that recently came out, Chris Kattan claims in his memoir—
Ugh, I didn’t read it. He’s a nut. You know, I don’t comment about that, because basically I have no interest in helping his book sales. I don’t even want to know or hear the dumb shit he came up with.
Well he claims that Lorne Michaels pressured him into having sex with you so that you would stay on A Night at the Roxbury.
No, I have nothing to say about him or his idiot book. I don’t feel like helping him at all.
I am still waiting to hear from Amber from Clueless, who Mollie claims Chris cheated on Amy with. We need to get them all in a room together to hear the truth, and it could also double as the most 90s convention ever.
Chris has yet to respond to Amy calling what he had to say “dumb shit” and Lorne Michaels will probably never comment. Lorne seems like the a shit stirrer that never wants to get his hands dirty. I mean, according to Chris Kattan’s version, Lorne pressured him to sleep with Amy and in Amy’s daughter version Lorne made fun of Chris for dating an older lady. Either way, this is not a good look for Lorne so it’s probably best for him to just do what he does best: lurk in the background with a stern and disapproving face.
