During the appearance, she revealed that a former co-star (she did not identify the star) once asked her to apply Neosporin antibiotic ointment on her lips before their kissing scene.

“Even before COVID, I had a scene partner who I had to kiss with, and he was such a germaphobe, he would put Neosporin on his lips and ask me to put it on mine, too, before he would kiss me,” she revealed.

Allison explained that she wasn’t sure how to respond, but it didn’t feel great to get the request.

“I didn’t know [what it would do,] but I took it very personally, though. I thought, What does he think I put in my mouth? I don’t know. It kind of unnerved me, but people are germaphobes.”

She also confirmed it was not known germaphobe Howie Mandel.

“You might think so, but no, it was not Howie Mandel. I will not say who it was.”

She recently made headlines with a shocking outfit she wore while renovating a home!

Wentworth Miller Talks About His Career After Saying He's Done Playing Straight Characters

Wentworth Miller Talks About His Career After Saying He's Done Playing Straight Characters

Wentworth Miller made headlines last year when he said that he is done playing straight characters and now he’s opening up about the roles he will take in the future.

The 48-year-old actor just returned to Law & Order: SVU as ADA Isaiah Holmes, the first LGBTQ district attorney on the show.

“I have things in common with Isaiah but we’re not the same person. Obviously. I had things in common with [Prison Break's] Michael Scofield too. What feels more truthful maybe, more authentic about Isaiah is I don’t have to spend time servicing straightness. Straight relationships,” Wentworth said in an interview with ET. “Acting is investigating. For me. Mapping new territory. Articulating things I don’t get to articulate in my day-to-day. Mapping straightness, at this point… feels like a dead end.”

Wentworth was also asked if he’s interested in telling any specific stories in the future.

“Sure. I’d like to tell — to watch — more stories where gay characters are informed by their struggles, but not defined. Not getting sacrificed so straight characters can enjoy some kind of epiphany,” Wentworth said. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.”

He added, “It’s so important queer audiences — queer kids — see stories that don’t center suffering. See us empowered, in positions of authority. Moving through the world with purpose. Confidence. Dignity. It makes it easier to imagine those things are available to us in real life too.”

Wentworth recently reacted to fans wanting his Prison Break character to be gay.
