In the report, two people, including a production assistant on Going In Style, said they were subjected to unwanted touching. The production assistant claimed he made “comments about her figure and clothing on a near-daily basis,” and that he would “rest his hand on her lower back or rub her lower back.”

She also said he “kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear.”

In another instance, an entertainment reporter and member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said that he “made comments about her skirt and her legs during two different junkets.”

As with several other women featured in the article, she said “Freeman’s fame and power kept her from speaking out.”

CNN reported that they reached out to Morgan‘s spokesperson for comment “and then, at his request, emailed him a detailed list of the accusations against Freeman. The spokesperson did not respond to multiple follow-ups by email seeking comment on the accusations.”

    He is a major creep. On the other hand, actors can’t harass reporters because press is not working for them nor with them. It’s a free world and everyone is entitled to flirt with hot reporters. It seems that people are confusing “ugly, old dude is making a pass at me which totally grosses me out” with sexual harassment.
