    Jessica Alba has claimed she wasn’t “allowed to make eye contact” with any of the ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ cast

    The 39-year-old actress appeared in Season 8 of the hit series - which aired in 1998 - as Leanne, a pregnant teenager who walked into a clinic where Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth) was working


    And now, Jessica has claimed she was told not to look at the rest of the cast members - including Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Joe E

    Tata, Hilary Swank and Vincent Young - during filming, or she would be “thrown off the set”.

    During an appearance on ‘Hot Ones’, she alleged: “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. 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.’ ”

    Meanwhile, the ‘LA’s Finest’ star recently claimed she was “demeaned” by Hollywood, and said her treatment within the industry pushed her to take a hiatus from acting, during which time she launched her business, The Honest Company.

    She said: "I was demeaned so much.

    "The way women were treated in many circumstances, I was just over it.

    "I'd do a lot of press, the guys did nothing compared to what I was doing. I was like, 'I'm done doing it this way.’ ”

    Jessica also suggested she had been a victim of sexual misconduct during her career and thinks her experiences made her into an "aggressive tomboy", though she declined to give the specifics.

    In the wake of the #MeToo campaign, Jessica was asked if she had experienced Hollywood at its worst and said: "I'm just gonna ... say nothing, because I don't really like focusing on that.

    "Just know that I've been through it and I guess I learned how to have a really thick skin.

    "I think that's why I was so aggressive and such a tomboy and probably cursed too much.

    "I've always approached everything with a bit of cynicism and a chip on my shoulder. Not in a bad way, in a way that drove me.”
