Heather Locklear Says First Wives Club Costar Wasn't at Fault for 'Gross' Onscreen Moment
31st July 2020



Naughton's rep told Yahoo Entertainment the moment was written in the script and provided a copy of the script's 1995 draft. In a statement to the outlet, his rep said, "James remembers shooting this scene as written in the script. He completely understands that Heather would have felt uncomfortable shooting this scene, as he felt uncomfortable as well."

Locklear clarified her comments on Instagram Wednesday, writing, "Oh no, I didn’t mean James Naughton did anything wrong. The script called for him to touch my breast. I was surprised that he circled my areola. We had not discussed the scene prior to filming. To be clear, I was never upset with James, just surprised. Love you James."

The actress told Braff and Faison during the podcast that she was originally intended to film several scenes, but that her time onscreen had been shortened.

“There was a couple of scenes that they cut out of me and then the only scene that I had, I had no lines and one of the actors — we were at a funeral — and he was supposed to take his hand and touch my breast,” Locklear said. "And they showed that.”

The scene went further, with Locklear adding, “He actually touched more than that. It was kind of gross. So I just said, ‘Can you just take my name off the credits since now I don’t have any lines?’ So it was creditless.”

The First Wives Club starred Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Maggie Smith and Stockard Channing.

It centered on three best friends, each going through their own breakup, who unite to get back at each other their exes.
