8 different women have accused Actor, Morgan Freeman of sexual harassment over a span of several years. The women claim Morgan was sexually inappropriate with them on the sets of his films and during media/press events.
One of the women claimed that while on the set of ‘Going in Style’, Freeman repeatedly attempted to lift up her skirt to see if she was wearing underwear. Another woman claimed that during the filming of ‘Now You See Me’, she knew to be covered up around the actor, as he would make inappropriate comments about her figure. Chloe Melas, a reporter of CNN, came forward and claimed that during an interview, while Melas was pregnant, Freeman told her she looked ‘ripe’ and that he wished he could have been there when she’d gotten pregnant.
Freeman has since issued an apology. He told TMZ, “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected. That was never my intent.”
