Screen and stage star Suzanne Somers, 71, defended Morgan Freeman in an interview on Tuesday when asked about the multiple allegations of sexual harassment levied against the 81-year-old actor.
“Well, this probably won’t be real popular, but I think that women … I totally understand the Weinstein and Bill Cosby, that’s like, of course. But you know, like Morgan Freeman’s a big flirt,” Somers said on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle. “I know him really well. He sees you and he’ll like your dress and he’ll like your hair, and he’ll like a lot of things.”
In May, a CNN investigation brought forth accusations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour from multiple women who came into professional contact with Freeman, including those who worked on his film sets, at his production company, Revelation Entertainment, and even the CNN reporter who spearheaded the investigation.
