AceShowbiz - "Stranger Things" actress Grace Van Dien opens up about her bad experience while working on one of her last movies. The 26-year-old star also announced that she would take a step back from acting.
During a live stream on Twitch, she claimed that she's turned down at least four movies in the last two and a half weeks after a producer allegedly asked her to join her in a threesome. Instead, Grace shared that she'd rather spend time on Twitch, where she can control her own environment.
"Here's the thing: I've 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 some of the people I had to work for," the Chrissy Cunningham depicter on the hit Netflix series, continued. "And with streaming, I get to choose who I hang out with, who I talk to, etc., etc."
She revealed, "In 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 like, that's my boss. I didn't [do it] and I cried and I was so upset, but it's like, when people are like, 'How is streaming better for your mental health?' That's how."
"I get to stay inside my home and play video games and I don't have my boss asking me to have sex with him. That's how this is better for my mental health," she further divulged, per IndieWire.
The actress then concluded her live stream saying, "That's why I'm going to stick to streaming for a little bit, and I hope that's not a huge wrench in your plans for me, but I'm happy here. And I'm developing my own projects and I'm hoping that someone decides to fund them because then I can be in control of my own set and I'm not going to ask my actors to sleep with me, so that's cool, right?"
