DANNY GLOVER was such a hound dog while filming “Lethal Weapon” that co-star Darlene Love still refuses to speak to him!
Sources say Darlene, 72, has been down on Danny, 66, ever since he hit on her when she played his character’s wife in the 1987 blockbuster.
“Danny’s nickname on the set was ‘Dirty Danny’ because he flirted with so many women and tried to get into their pants,” a source told The ENQUIRER. “Darlene was married at the time and kept telling Danny that she wasn’t interested, but he didn’t think she meant it. Back then, sexual harassment wasn’t taken as seriously as it is today, and no one filed a formal complaint because they wanted to work.
“Danny has sent Darlene flowers many times since then with a card saying he’s sorry, but she’s never responded.”
Darlene – a famed backup singer in the ’60s and ’70s whose journey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is chronicled in the documentary “20 Feet from Stardom” – admits she’s still angry with Glover.
“He wanted to sleep with me, it was a big problem,” said Darlene, who nevertheless went on to play Glover’s wife in the three “Lethal Weapon” sequels.
“Once he called me at home and said, ‘I’m looking at a picture of you right now. You don’t know what I’d like to do with you.’” When a reporter asked if they’re still in touch, Darlene snapped: “I don’t speak to him. Keep that man away from me!”
Friends are advising Darlene to accept Glover’s apology, but the source said: “For Darlene, it still stings.”
