“Stranger Things” star Grace Van Dien (Chrissy Cunningham) says she has been turning down movie roles after she experienced sexual advances from a movie producer.
In her own Twitch stream, Van Dien explained, “Here’s the thing, I have seen that some people are upset with me for turning down acting projects and deciding to stream more, but the fact of the matter is the last few projects I’ve worked on I didn’t have the best experiences with I had to work for.”
She continued, “one of the last movies I did, one of the producers asked me to…like, he hired a girl that he was sleeping with and then he had her ask me to have a threesome with them. So, that’s my boss. And then I didn’t and I cried and I was so upset. But when people are like, ‘How is streaming better for your mental health?’ That’s how. I get to stay inside my house and play video games and I don’t have my boss asking me to have sex with them.”
While Van Dien is sticking to streaming for now, she does eventually want to get back into show business. “I’m hoping that someone decides to fund [my own projects] because then I can be in control of my own set, and I’m not gonna ask my actors to sleep with me.”
