Grace Van Dien said turned down acting projects after this incident
The 26-year-old revealed she quit her acting career as she wanted to control her own environment. She shares via IndieWire, “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. And with streaming, I get to choose who I hang out with, who I talk to, etc., etc.”
Talking about this disgusting moment, she revealed, “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.”
Van Dien added, “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.” However, she didn’t reveal the name of the accuser she did inform her agency about this incident.
The actress who also acted in V for Vengeance, Julius Caesar, Live!, What Comes Around, and The Fix, among others, currently wanted to keep her distance from acting.
