The urging to go above and beyond was due to Michaels' belief that Paramount would only do the movie should Heckerling sign on as a director and not just a producer.
“Saturday Night Live” alum Chris Kattan claims in a new book that producer Lorne Michaels once pressured him to have sex with a director so she would stay attached to the 1990s comedy film “A Night At The Roxbury.”
In his memoir, “Baby, Don’t Hurt Me,” Kattan said director Amy Heckerling was slated to helm the 1998 movie when she came onto him. Kattan, then 27, writes that he rebuffed the 43-year-old “Clueless” director’s advances.
The next day, he says he got a call from a “furious” Michaels, who allegedly told him Heckerling was considering backing out of the project.
“Chris, I’m not saying you have to f–k her, but it wouldn’t hurt,” Michaels allegedly said.
