Morgan Freeman has become the latest big name to be involved in a sexual assault scandal, as eight women have accused the 80-year-old actor of inappropriate behavior.
CNN reported that eight women have accused Freeman of sexual misconduct while filming Going In Style back in 2015. A production assistant, who was among the eight women, claimed that the actor attempted to lift up her skirt, and reportedly asked if she was wearing underwear.
Another woman, who worked with him on 2013 film, Now You See Me, also spoke out against the actor. She said that the females on set knew “not to wear any top that would show our breasts, not to wear anything that would show our bottoms” when Morgan Freeman was around.
Morgan Freeman has now responded to the allegations, stating that he never “intentionally” meant to make anyone feel “uncomfortable”…
“Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy,” he said in a statement.
“I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”
We wonder if anyone else will come forward with allegations against the actor…
