A new report suggests that actor Bill Murray may have agreed to a $100K settlement to a “much younger” female crew member from the set of his movie, “Being Mortal.”
According to the report, 72-year-old Murray kissed and straddled the woman on set, and she was “horrified” and “interpreted his actions as entirely sexual,” which led to her filing a complaint.
This comes within 24 hours of Geena Davis releasing her memoir, “Dying of Politeness,” where she blasted Murray for “insisting” on using a massage machine on her back despite refusing the offer multiple times until she relented to avoid a scene. Davis also claims Murray screamed at her on set in front of hundreds of people.
Rob Schneider also says that Murray “wasn’t very nice to us” while on SNL. “He hated us on Saturday Night Live when he hosted. He absolutely hated us. I mean, seething.” Schneider says he was confused by why Murray felt the way he did but was confident that he felt “naked rage” towards the other on-set talent, which included Adam Sandler.
Seth Green and Lucy Liu have also spoken out about Murray’s abuses while working with him, along with Richard Dreyfuss, Laura Ziskin, Harold Ramis, and Chevy Chase.
