Morgan Freeman has apologized to “anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected”, after eight women told CNN the actor had sexually harassed them, mainly with his comments.
The famous 80-year old actor told The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday that “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.”
Eight women told CNN that Freeman made inappropriate comments about their bodies and touched them, mainly on their lower backs.
A production assistant at CNN told the outlet that Freeman harassed her for several months while working on the 2015 set of “Going In Style.”
She said Freeman made comments about her body almost every day and would rub her lower back.
