Grace Van Dien, perhaps best known in the acting world for playing Chrissy Cunningham in Season 4 of “Stranger Things,” revealed that she’s quit acting to focus on streaming after a producer asked her for a threesome. Taking to her Twitch channel, where she has more than 300,000 followers, she opened up about her terrible experiences in Hollywood and what led her to change careers.

“The fact of the matter is the last few projects I’ve worked on I didn’t have the best experiences with some of the people I had to work for. And with streaming, I get to choose who I hang out with, who I talk to, etc etc,” she said.

“One of the last movies I did, one of the producers hired a girl that he was sleeping with, and then he had her ask me to have a threesome with them. So like, that’s my boss. And I didn’t, and I cried. I was so upset.”

Being propositioned for a threesome isn’t the worst thing Grace Van Dien has experienced

In addition to being propositioned for a threesome, Grace Van Dien’s co-star Joseph Quinn said “Stranger Things” fans have also trolled her relentlessly. During a live Q&A at London Comic Con on March 4, he was asked what he thought about the harassment Van Dien received for playing his love interest.

“I was talking to her about it. The internet is a very unforgiving place,” Quinn said. “It’s a place where people can show a lot of support, or where people can rally around hatred and misinformation. It’s indicative of where we are culturally – just through association she was getting lambasted. It’s disgusting. I don’t know what to say other than it sucks.”

It seems Grace has plenty of fans who are happy to catch up with her on Twitch. However, it’s a shame she had to stop pursuing her passion because of perverts in Hollywood.
