Morgan Freeman 'Devastated' by Reports of Sexual Harassment: 'I Did Not Assault Women'
Morgan Freeman is speaking out again amid reports of his allegedly inappropriate sexual behavior towards women.

“I am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye, by Thursday’s media reports,” he said in a statement. “All victims of assault and harassment deserve to be heard. And we need to listen to them. But it is not right to equate horrific incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humor.”

The actor, 80, added, “I admit that I am someone who feels a need to try to make women — and men — feel appreciated and at ease around me. As a part of that, I would often try to joke with and compliment women, in what I thought was a light-hearted and humorous way. Clearly I was not always coming across the way I intended. And that is why I apologized Thursday and will continue to apologize to anyone I might have upset, however unintentionally.

Harvey Weinstein Arrested on Sex Crime Charges in New York City
Harvey Weinstein was arrested on Friday in New York City on charges of rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct stemming from a months-long investigation by the NYPD into accusations by multiple women.

In a long-ranging interview with The New York Times, most of the male Arrested Development cast members repeatedly shoved their feet in their mouths when the conversation turned to the sexual assault allegations against Jeffrey Tambor, who was also present at the interview. Jason Bateman, David Cross, and Tony Hale attempted to excuse his abusive onset behavior over and over again throughout the interview, even when Jessica Walter - who plays the delightfully sardonic Bluth matriarch Lucille - broke down in tears recounting a past incident with Tambor.

When Walter began speaking about it, Bateman immediately tried to brush it off, saying that the cast "is a family and families, you know, have love, laughter, arguments - again, not to belittle it, but a lot of stuff happens in 15 years."

Walter, still crying, responded: "Let me just say one thing that I just realized in this conversation. I have to

All the Dashing Royal Wedding Pictures of Prince Harry and His Best Man, Prince William
After months of excitement and anticipation, Prince Harry wed Meghan Markle on May 19 at Windsor Castle with his older brother by his side. Prince William was more than ready to support Harry during the royal wedding, having gone through the whole experience himself once before - in case you somehow forgot.
