Another high profile actor is being caught out for allegedly engaging in improper with co-workers.

Morgan Free is now being accused of sexual misconduct by about eight women over different years who have come in contact with the actor on movie sets.

According to CNN, they spoke to 16 people, eight witnesses, and eight victims. CNN’s entertainment reporter Chloe Melas is the only person who revealed their identity.

A production assistant claims the actions accured in 2015 while on set of Going in Style. She accuses him of touching her without permission, rubbing her lower back, and making comments about her figure. Freeman is also being accused of going one step further and in one incident  he involutarily tried to lift up her skirt.

“He kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear,” she said.

Another woman who worked on the film Now You See Me also recalled her experience. He did comment on our bodies. … We knew that if he was coming by … not to wear any top that would show our breasts, not to wear anything that would show our bottoms, meaning not wearing clothes that [were] fitted.”

Melas who was six months pregnant at the time says that Freeman told her she looked “ripe” and was hinting that he wished he was there when she got pregnant.

No word from Freeman as of yet.
