“I couldn’t even make eye contact with any of the cast members, which was really strange when you’re, like, trying to do a scene with them,” the 39-year-old actress claimed during an episode of Hot Ones that debuted earlier this month. “It was like, ‘You’re not allowed to make eye contact with any one of the cast members or you’ll be thrown off the set.’”
“I had all the scenes with her. If anybody didn’t want to have their eyes looked into, it would’ve been me, but I don’t remember ‘cause I have the world’s worst memory,” Garth, who starred on all 10 seasons of the drama, quipped in the “9021OMG” podcast teaser on Sunday, October 4.
“‘Don’t look at the stars of the show’ was never an edict that came down on our show. I don’t know who told Jessica Alba not to look at us,” Priestley, who also directed 15 episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210, said on KiSS 92.5’s The Roz & Mocha Show on Tuesday, October 6. “We never thought we were MC Hammer.”
Priestley, 51, added that Alba’s “story line” had “nothing to do with” his character Brandon.
“I’m sorry that that happened to her,” he added. “It seems really incongruous with everything else that happened on our show, so I don’t know what her experience was.”
