But Allen has denied the allegation, saying to Variety: "No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing."

Anderson, who was 23 at the time of the alleged incident, claims she arrived on set on her first day of filming the show back in 1991, when her new co-worker 'introduced himself' by flashing his penis.
