Actress Esther Williams was asked to leave the Los Angeles Country Club because she wore pants to a charity function, though she was the guest of honor.
Williams, 67, said a man told her she could don a skirt kept handy for dress-code violators - or leave. "I thought he was kidding," she said.Williams, MGM's "Bathing Beauty" of the 1940s, said she told the crowd, "I haven't done anything to offend anyone here tonight, except that I have silk on my legs and they want my legs bare." Then she left.
The country club declined comment on the incident.
