UPDATE: Freeman has responded to the allegations and apologized:
“Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy,” Freeman said in a statement. “I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”
According to CNN, eight people are accusing Morgan Freeman of sexual harassment, including unwanted touching and inappropriate behavior.
In the detailed report, 80-year-old Morgan Freeman allegedly committed these acts of unwanted advances on women while he was on movie sets and with his production company, Revelations Entertainment.
One story comes from a former Production Assistant on the 2015 movie “Going In Style” which starred Freeman alongside actors Michael Caine and Alan Arkin. The young lady describes the incident to CNN saying, Freeman,
“kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear.”
He never successfully lifted her skirt, she said — he would touch it and try to lift it, she would move away, and then he’d try again. Eventually, she said,
“Alan [Arkin] made a comment telling him to stop. Morgan got freaked out and didn’t know what to say.”
Chloe Melas, a reporter for CNN also accuses the actor of reckless behavior saying he told her “you look ripe” while she was 6 months pregnant.
Melas is also the co-author of the article accusing Freeman of this issues.
