New video footage of Morgan Freeman making suggestive comments to a reporter have surfaced only days after eight women accused the actor of sexual misconduct. The reporter featured in the video opened up about her experience interviewing Freeman over the course of a decade.
CNN reporter spoke with Chicago WGN-TV entertainment producer Tyra Martin said that the 80-year-old actor "always made sexually charged comments."
While Martin claimed she was always "in on the joke," she did feel like Freeman crossed the line when "he asked her not to pull down her skirt as she stood up to leave the interview."
In an interview of Freeman being interviewed by Martin, the actor said, "You've got magic written all over you, child" while promoting the film Now You See Me.
The video, obtained by HLN, showed Freeman saying, "I am enjoying bachelor life immensely. I get to look at you and drool," after Martin inquired about the actor's dating life.
Morgan Freeman recently spoke out about the allegations in a statement saying, "Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy.”
The Oscar-award winning actor continued, "I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”
