“It was constant comments about the way I looked,” she told CNN.

Another woman claims that that actor tried to lift her skirt up and asked her if she was wearing underwear. 

In a statement to People, Freeman said:

'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.'
