Morgan Freeman is being accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by 8 women over several years on the sets of his movies or during media events related to his projects.
One of the allegations comes from a production assistant who worked on Freeman’s movie in 2015, “Going In Style.” She told CNN Morgan repeatedly tried to lift up her skirt to see if she was wearing underwear, and commented on her figure. She says costar Alan Arkin saw it happening and told Freeman to stop.
Another woman who worked on “Now You See Me” claims Freeman also made comments about her body and another female staffer’s. She says women on set knew to cover up whenever he was around.
A CNN reporter said she too was subject to Freeman’s misconduct. She says during a 2015 media junket, Freeman told her she looked ripe, and he wished he could’ve been there when she gave birth. She was 6 months pregnant at the time.
In all, CNN says they spoke to 16 people — 8 who claim they were victims, and 8 who witnessed Freeman’s misconduct.
We’ve reached out to Freeman’s reps for comment.
