Morgan Freeman has been accused of sexual harassment. Of the 16 people who spoke to CNN about the investigation, 8 of them said they were victims of harassment and inappropriate behavior by the Oscar-winner. 8 others said they witnessed the misconduct by Freeman.
One woman, a production assistant on his 2015 film Going In Style, said that on one occasion Freeman "kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear." She said that Freeman "subjected her to unwanted touching and comments about her figure and clothing on a near-daily basis," according to CNN. The unwanted touching included rubbing on her lower back.
Freeman's alleged inappropriate behavior was not limited to that one movie set, according to other sources who spoke to CNN. A woman who was a senior member of the production staff of the movie "Now You See Me" in 2012 told CNN that Freeman sexually harassed her and her female assistant on numerous occasions by making comments about their bodies.
"He did comment on our bodies... We knew that if he was coming by ... 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," she said.
