It’s safe to say that Casey Wilson and Tim Allen won’t be exchanging any Christmas presents this year. While speaking on her Bitch Sesh podcast, Wilson said that working with Allen on The Santa Clauses was “the truly single worst experience I’ve ever had with a co-star ever.” Yikes.

Casey Wilson made a guest appearance in the first season of The Santa Clauses as Sara, the grown-up version of the little girl Tim Allen encountered in the very first Santa Clause movie, but it wasn’t a very festive experience.

So I’m in a scene. It’s just me and Tim Allen and I’m supposed to throw things at him,” Wilson recalled. “I think he’s a burglar. So he’s coming down the chimney, obviously as Santa, and I am woken up thinking there’s an intruder, basically like a home invasion scene. So I’m throwing things at him. [He] goes over to the producer who is standing four feet from me and goes, and I hear him, he goes, ‘You gotta tell her to stop stepping on my lines.’ The producer turns to me with horror on his face and has to walk one foot to me and he goes, ‘Um, Tim would ask that you stop stepping on his lines.’

Casey Wilson added that “everybody was walking on egg shells” around Tim Allen on set, and “when he was done, he was so f**king rude. Never made eye contact, never said anything. It was so uncomfortable.

It’s the end, and Tim Allen goes, ‘Leaving!,’ takes his Santa cape, picks it up and drops it on the floor and walks out,” Wilson said. “And they hustle in his stand-in; lovely man, who was much nicer to act against. People are scurrying to pick up his velvet Santa coat. He’s a bitch. And this is the best… I will not say who said this. This was someone that I do not know, perhaps in the crew. [He or she] breezes past me and just goes, ‘You’re seeing him on a good day.’” She added that she hadn’t spoken about the story until now because a producer on the series is a great friend of hers and her kids “loved the movies.

The second season of The Santa Clauses is now streaming on Disney+.
