老牌黑人演员摩根.弗里曼被8位女性指控性骚扰 回应:不是故意的!_最新英语新闻

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman apologized Thursday after he was accused by eight women of harassment and inappropriate behavior in a published report.


"Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would willingly offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy," Freeman said in a statement. "I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent."


The mea culpa came several hours after a CNN report in which the women — backed up by eight additional witnesses — described “a pattern of inappropriate behavior by Freeman on set, while promoting his movies and at his production company Revelations Entertainment.”

美国有线电视新闻网报道该事件几个小时之后,这位女性的陈述也得到了另外8名证人的支持—“在宣传他的电影和制作公司Revelations Entertainment时,在舞台上弗里曼确实存在不当行为。”

Among other things, Freeman allegedly subjected two women to “unwanted touching” and three said he made “public comments about women’s clothing or bodies.” “But each of them said they didn’t report Freeman’s behavior, with most saying it was because they feared for their jobs,” CNN reported.


Only two of the women accusing Freeman — including Chloe Melas, a co-author of the CNN article, who says she was harassed while interviewing the actor on a junket — were named. NBC has not verified the allegations against the actor.

其中指责弗里曼的两位女性之一包括CNN文章的合作者克洛伊梅拉斯(Chloe Melas)说,她在面试时受到了性骚扰。但是NBC没有核实对这位演员的指控。

Freeman, 80, made his mark in movies like “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Shawshank Redemption” and won the Academy Award for best supporting actor for “Million Dollar Baby.” He also made waves playing God in “Bruce Almighty.” The iconic actor has been nominated four other times for an Oscar and is also famous for his voice-over work in the Oscar-winning documentaries “March of the Penguins” and “The Long Way Home.”
