Morgan Freeman Hit With Sexual Harassment Accusations By Multiple Women
Morgan Freeman has now been accused of inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment by multiple women.
According to a report by CNN, eight women have come forward saying they have experienced misconduct from the 80-year-old actor. Eight other interviewees claim to have witnessed such behavior.
In one instance, a young production assistant says Morgan subjected her to unwanted touching and comments about her body on set of Going In Style back in 2015. She claims that Freeman “kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear.” At one point during the encounter, she says, “Alan [Arkin] made a comment telling him to stop. Morgan got freaked out and didn’t know what to say.”
Similar accounts have been brought forward, with one senior production member of the 2012 movie Now You See Me saying:
“He did comment on our bodies. We knew that if he was coming by ├óΓé¼┬ª not to wear any top that would show our breasts, not to wear anything that would show our bottoms, meaning not wearing clothes that [were] fitted.”
The alleged behavior is said to have occurred in public while on set, at his Revelations production company, and even with reporters at press junkets. None of the women reported Freeman because they said they feared losing their jobs.
All of the accounts pretty consistently accuse the legendary actor of unsolicited touching and comments that forced them to stop wearing form-fitting clothing when he was around.
The investigation began when CNN reporter Chloe Melas allegedly had an uncomfortable encounter with Freeman where he made inappropriate comments about her while she was pregnant. He supposedly told her remarks like “I wish I was there,” and “You are ripe,” while looking her up and down. She is the co-author of this report.
