The funnyman admitted that he was nervous when he ordered around Weaver on the set of his directorial debut film 'Crazy on the Outside', comparing her as Ellen Ripley.

Funnyman was nervous ahead of his directorial debut "" because he was intimidated about ordering around on the film set. The comedian recruited Weaver for the crime drama, but kept imagining her as tough "Aliens" character Ellen Ripley.

He says, "She's big, she's tall, she's scary. She's Ripley for crying out loud! She stabs aliens!" And Allen admits he's embarrassed looking back at his attempts to prove his directorial skills, comparing himself to a young girl, saying "My voice (would) get in that (high octave), 'Um, you know, it would be great if... I don't know why I'm talking like a little girl'."

On his first time to helm a film, Tim Allen previously said that has helped him. He shared, "I've got a lot on the line here. I financed this thing - private financing. I used Kevin Costner's model. He helped me through this - on how to direct it, how to put it out."
