“He opened his robe and flashed me quickly—completely naked underneath,” she wrote.

“He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked,” she added.

“Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.”

“No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing,” he told the tabloid.

Anderson also wrote in a text to a Variety journalist that she believes Allen had “no bad intentions” by allegedly flashing her.

“Tim is a comedian, it’s his job to cross the line,” she wrote.

“Mr. Nicholson had two beautiful women with him,” she wrote.

“They were all giggling and kissing up against the wall, sliding all over each other.
