Rob Reiner showed a lot of cheek as a teenager — by grabbing the butt of Mary Tyler Moore!
Actor and director Rob, best known as “Meathead” on the legendary sitcom “All in the Family,” admits he groped America’s then-sweetheart on the set of “The Dick Van Dyke Show.”
“I was 14 years old and she was like 25, I guess,” Rob recalls. “The hormones were going, and I just went and grabbed.”
His father Carl Reiner, who created the hit 1960s sitcom, didn’t exactly blast young Rob for sexual harassment.
“My father called me into his office, and he said, ‘Did you grab Mary Tyler Moore by the ass?’
And I said, ‘Uh, yeah,’ ” revealed Rob.
“And he said, with a big smile on his face, ‘Don’t do that anymore.’”
