Gilbert is still most famous as little Laura Elizabeth Ingalls Wildersaid on Little House on the Prairie but reported a sordid scene a million miles away from that wholesome show.
Congress as a Democrat in Michigan's 8th congressional district before dropping out due to health issues.
Her audition scene was an argument with Kilmer and ended with the actor slapping her and knocking her to the ground.
He Stone wrote this special scene that he wanted me to do for him physically in the casting room, and it was humiliating and horrid.
In 2009, her autobiography Prairie Tale: A Memoir, was released.
This backs Stone's rebuttal that no such scene was written purely for Gilbert's audition.
However, a version of the original script available online does contain the scene.
