On Thursday, it came to light that eight women have accused actor Morgan Freeman of sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour.
CNN reported that the behaviour was allegedly towards female members of on-set production staff and reporters.
One alleged that Freeman often touched her without permission and made comments about her appearance.
“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.'
