» Morgan Freeman friend defends actor after misconduct allegations, speaks out against accusers
“We will be reaching out to Visa to discuss further.”
Eight women, including a reporter and a production assistant, accused Freeman of sexual harassment in an expansive CNN article published Thursday.
One woman, who worked on the set of “Now You See Me” in 2012, said the 80-year-old actor would frequently harass her and a female assistant.
“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 told CNN.
Freeman said he never intentionally harassed anyone.
“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,” he said in a statement to the Daily News.
