After eight women came forward last week accusing Morgan Freeman of harassment and inappropriate behavior, Entertainment Tonight dug up interviews over the years of the 81-year-old actor making questionable comments about the appearance of the women who interviewed him, including author and activist, Janet Mock.
“I don’t know how you all manage to do that all the time. You got a dress that’s halfway between your knee and your… hips, and you sit down right across from me and you cross your legs,” he says. Watch as she discusses her encounter on Wendy this week at the 3:10 mark below.
Since the allegations, Mock has said her encounter with Freeman left her “deeply disappointed.”
In a statement after the allegations surfaced, the Oscar winner denied any wrongdoing, “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy,” it reads. “I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”
