According to a recent report, eight different women have now accused legendary actor Morgan Freeman of sexual harassment. They have all come forward claiming that they experienced various types of harassment from the 80-year old actor. What’s even more interesting is that there are eight other people who have supposedly witnessed Freeman’s misconduct. According to one of the women, a young production assistant, on the set of 2015’s Going in Style, the actor touched her inappropriately and made comments about her body.
According to her, the actor kept trying to lift up her skirt and asking whether or not she was wearing underwear. Another man who was present during that encounter made a comment about Freeman’s actions. At that point, he started freaking out and didn’t know what to say. Another supposed victim of his harassment is a female senior production member on 2012’s Now You See Me. According to her, Freeman kept making comments about women’s bodies. Moreover, they were instructed to not wear anything that would show their breasts or bottoms every time he came around. No skirts, cleavages, or fitted clothes.
Women accuse Morgan Freeman of sexual misconduct
According to all of these women, this inappropriate behavior that Morgan Freeman was allegedly displaying often happened in public, while on set of various movies. Moreover, it would happen at his production company called Revelations, and even with female reporters during press tours and interviews. It seems that nobody came forward with reports about his behavior for fear of losing their jobs.
It’s interesting that all of these accounts talk of Freeman’s unwanted comments and touching. Also, about the need to stop wearing fitted clothes around him to avoid it. CNN reporter Chloe Melas is one of the first to come forward with her story, after Freeman made inappropriate comments on her while she was pregnant.
