Amy Heckerling blasts ‘nut’ Chris Kattan over sexual coercion claim

Veteran Hollywood director Amy Heckerling dismissed Chris Kattan as a “nut” in a recent interview, where she totally sidestepped the “Saturday Night Live” alum’s claims that Lorne Michaels pressured him to have sex with her in the late 1990s.

In his autobiography, “Baby Don’t Hurt Me,” Kattan alleged he hooked up with the Bronx-born “Clueless” director on her casting couch more than two decades ago.

The tryst allegedly happened after he got a call from Michaels telling him to “keep Amy happy” so she would stay on the 1990s comedy film “A Night at the Roxbury,” Kattan claimed.

When asked about Kattan’s book in a wide-ranging Daily Beast interview published Sunday, Heckerling, 65, scoffed.

“Ugh, I didn’t read it. He’s a nut,” she said. “You know, I don’t comment about that, because basically I have no interest in helping his book sales. I don’t even want to know or hear the dumb s–t he came up with.”

When pressed on the claims, she said: “No, I have nothing to say about him or his idiot book. I don’t feel like helping him at all.”

An SNL spokesperson previously denied Kattan’s claims to The Post saying, “This did not happen.”

Show reps have also said that the publisher never contacted them to verify the claims from the book.
