Morgan Freeman has been accused of inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment by eight women who alleged a pattern of misconduct that occurred on movie sets, during film promotions and at his production company, Revelations Entertainment.
Production assistants, reporters, former employees and others spoke with CNN, though only one went on the record with her name, for a report published Thursday.

The 78-year-old actor, who’s the subject of the new documentary “McKellen: Playing the Part,” railed against the industry when recently asked by Time Out London what he thought of so few gay characters appearing in blockbusters.
