“Stranger Things” star Grace Van Dien said she’s done with acting after a film producer allegedly propositioned her for a threesome.

In an online video, the 26-year-old actress alleged that an unnamed producer on “one of the last movies” she starred in asked her to sleep with him and his girlfriend, the Daily Mail reported Friday.

“The last few projects I’ve worked on I didn’t have the best experiences,” Van Dien shared. “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,” she added. “And I didn’t [do it], and I cried and I was so upset.”

“But when people are like, ‘How is streaming better for your mental health?’ That’s how,” the actress continued. “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.”

The actress, best known for playing Chrissy Cunningham in the fourth season of the hit series “Stranger Things,” said that becoming a streamer on Twitch will allow her to be “in control.”

“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,” Van Dien explained.

“My cast mate, she was there with me and was like, ‘Did I just hear that correctly?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah,'” she added. “And she was like, ‘You want to go take a walk?’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ And we just had a miserable time. We cried a lot on that shoot.”


The actress said she thought she “handled it in the right way” when she notified her management of the alleged incident.

The outlet noted that the last films Grace was in — that have yet to come out — include horror movie “Alaska,” and comedies “Aaah! Roach!” and “Silver Star,” according to IMDb.

At the time of this publication, there was no public response to Van Dien’s allegation.
