According to an excerpt obtained by Variety from her upcoming book, the actress, 55, claimed that Allen, 69, exposed himself to her on the set of Home Improvement when she was 23 years old. Anderson portrayed the Tool Girl Lisa in the 1990 sitcom for the first two seasons of the show.
“On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably,” the excerpt read.
Allen, who was 37 at the time of the alleged incident was presumably referring to Anderson’s modeling photos from Playboy.
The outlet reached out to the actor for a comment and he denied the accusation.
“No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing,” he said in the statement. Anderson has yet to respond to Allen’s comment.
The actress appeared in Home Improvement from 1991 to 1997 for 23 episodes. While the sitcom went on to become the top-rated TV series in the United States, she ultimately left to focus on the Baywatch film series, which became a global phenomenon back in the ’90s.
Love, Pamela takes fans through Anderson’s life from everything involving how she got her start in the industry—going from a small-town girl in Vancouver Island to one of the most recognizable faces in the world.
In the memoir, Anderson also addresses the Hulu series Pam and Tommy, which premiered in Feb. 2022 and was made without Anderson’s permission. The show dug deep into the sex tape she made with ex-husband Tommy Lee that was stolen from her home.
