Mariel Hemingway is baring all in her new memoir — and dishing on all her encounters with Hollywood's leading men!
In the mid-1970s, Mariel — the granddaughter of famed novelist Ernest Hemingway — moved to NYC with the hopes of making it as an actress. Soon after, the young star landed her critically acclaimed role in the Woody Allen film 'Manhattan.'
“Our relationship was platonic, but I started to see that he had a kind of crush on me,” the 53-year-old wrote in her book, 'Out Came the Sun: Overcoming the Legacy of Mental Illness, Addiction, and Suicide in My Family,' of working with the iconic director.

Years later, Mariel starred as Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten in the 1983 flick 'Star 80.' During filming, the actress claimed director Bob Fosse often went on “drug-fueled rampages” and would hit her and chase her around the set. When she turned down his romantic advances, he called her a “manipulative c**t," she wrote.

According to the mom-of-two, a "fat and unpleasant" Robert De Niro originally auditioned for the lead male role in 'Star 80,' before the part was given to Eric Roberts. During their time on set, Mariel revealed she called Robert an "a**hole" when he hit on her and Eric "turned into a monster” when she refused to go on a date with him.

“He wouldn’t look at me until cameras started, or he would stomp down on my toes just before a close-up. He even spit in my face once," she wrote.
"Eric wore me out every day. He made a difficult movie more difficult. And then like magic, his personality switched back. At the end of the shoot, he said, ‘Didn’t we have a wonderful time?'" she added in 'Out Came the Sun,' in bookstores now.
