Melissa Gilbert Recalls Being Sexually Harassed By Oliver Stone During An Audition

Melissa Gilbert
Another woman is accusing Oliver Stone of sexual impropriety.
As you may remember, former Playboy playmate Carrie Stevens called out the director for groping her at a party when she was 22 years old after his response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Now, Melissa Gilbert is saying Carrie isn’t the only one.
In a new interview on Andy Cohen‘s satellite radio show, the 53-year-old revealed Stone sexually harassed her during a disturbing audition for his 1991 film The Doors.

The Little House On The Prairie alum said:

“I’m actually sitting here telling you this story, afraid to say his name, because I’m worried about backlash … Oh fuck it! It was Oliver Stone, and it was The Doors.”

She added:

“I never really talked about it ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and it was all because I had said something and embarrassed him publicly. He wrote this special scene that he wanted me to do for him physically in the casting room, and it was humiliating and horrid. He got me back and it hurt.”

According to Gilbert’s account, Stone forced her to perform a scene he wrote specifically for her where she had to get on her hands and knees and say, “Do me, baby.” She recalled leaving the audition in tears, and the part went to Meg Ryan.
So far no response from Stone, but Gilbert followed up her story on Twitter, saying:

Thank you for bravely sharing your experience, Melissa!
