The Academy Award-winning actor was caught on tape making creepy comments towards Entertainment Tonight reporter Ashley Crossan in 2016, while Freeman was promoting his film London Has Fallen.
In the footage, Freeman is seen asking Ashley Crossan whether she would “fool around with older guys”.
“Are you married?” Freeman asked Crossan.
After she replied no, Freeman asked if she would fool around with an older man.
“I’m just asking,” he said.
As the interview finishes up and they shake hands, Crossan tells him it was a pleasure.
Freeman responded: “Mine. Look at yourself.”
In another clip shared by Entertainment Tonight, Freeman makes further uncomfortable comments in an interview with ET author, activist and special correspondent for ET Janet Mock, who he spoke to in 2015 while promoting his film 5 Flights Up.
During the interview, Freeman told Mock, “I don’t know how you all manage to do that all the time… You got a dress halfway between your knee and your hips, and you sit down right across from me and cross your legs.”
Speaking to ET about the 2015 interview, Mock said: "This interaction is an exhibition of the casual nature at which men in positions of power believe that everything belongs to them, including women’s bodies as they’re merely just trying to do their job."
“I was deeply disappointed that someone who was seen as America’s grandfather was susceptible to such disturbing behaviour and felt comfortable enough to do that as cameras were rolling, and that he could take claim of my body and look at it before even looking into my eyes," she added.
