— Actor Morgan Freeman has been accused of inappropriate behavior and harassment by at least eight women, CNN reported Thursday.
A woman who worked in 2015 as a production assistant for the film "Going in Style," starring Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin, told CNN that she was harassed for several months by Freeman. She was not identified.
The woman said that in one incident, Freeman “kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear."
She told CNN he stopped after Arkin commented about his behavior.
“Morgan got freaked out and didn’t know what to say,” she said.
Seven other women told CNN that Freeman, 80, acted inappropriately or harassed them. The alleged incidents took place in public and at least one happened in front of Lori McCreary, who co-founded production company Revelations Entertainment in 1996 with Freeman, CNN reported.
A majority of Freeman's accusers said the 80-year-old actor "repeatedly (behaved) in ways that made women feel uncomfortable at work." Two women, including the production assistant on "Going in Style," told CNN that Freeman “subjected them to unwanted touching.”

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — A judge in Seminole County, Florida, has granted George Zimmerman a public defender to represent him in his latest legal battle.
Zimmerman told the judge that he’s indigent, unemployed and has $2.5 million in debt and liabilities, according to court documents.
Zimmerman is facing a misdemeanor stalking charge that was filed by the Seminole County State Attorney’s Office earlier this month.
A sheriff's report said an investigator, Dennis Warren, contacted Zimmerman in September on behalf of Michael Gasparro, who is making a documentary on Trayvon Martin. The series is being produced by rapper Jay-Z.
Zimmerman allegedly told Gasparro, "Help Dennis out and give him a heads up. I'm going to find him. And I'm bringing hell with me."
He allegedly texted Gasparro and said, "Dennis is a (expletive) who bothered my uncle in his home. Local or former law officer, he's well on his way to the inside of a gator as well. 10-4?"
WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said the indigent applications are rarely scrutinized by the court because they are done under oath.
“As long as you can show your liabilities outweigh your assets, you are maybe entitled to a public defender and you are maybe entitled to the cost of defense,” Sheaffer said.
Zimmerman is scheduled to be in court May 30.
