It was only a few days ago when Morgan Freeman was slammed with sexual harassment claims by multiple women in Hollywood.

The "Shawshank Redemption" actor was accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by eight women over several years on the set of his movies or at related media events.

This time he's claiming that the "incidents" in question were simply confused by "misplaced compliments or humour" and not sexual assault.

Freeman says, "I am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined in the blink of an eye." He continues, "It is not right to equate horrific incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humour."

Freeman continues by saying that he would try to make women and men feel more comfortable around him on set and that's why he would often "make jokes with or compliment" women in a lighthearted way.

He stated that "Clearly I was not always coming across the way I intended," He continued, "And that is why I apologized Thursday and will continue to apologize to anyone I might have upset, however unintentionally."
