Three’s Company alum Suzanne Somers is defending accused sexual harasser Morgan Freeman, calling him a “big flirt” and saying she hopes the #MeToo Movement doesn’t end the art of seduction.
Speaking to Fox News host Laura Ingraham on The Ingraham Angle Tuesday, she addressed how she hopes the #MeToo Movement changes Hollywood—but not too much.
“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. 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.”
She continued: “I hope the dance doesn’t stop. It’s seduction. It’s flirting. All those things are really fun. So I hope there’s a way we can find a nice medium with that.”
In May, eight women accused Morgan of misconduct... he denied the allegations.
In a statement following the report Freeman said he was “devastated" that "80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye" by news reports of misconduct."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," he added. The 81-year-old Freeman won an Oscar for his supporting role in Million Dollar Baby.
