Actor Bill Murray said he is talking with the woman who reported he behaved inappropriately toward her on the movie set of Being Mortal.

Production of the film was suspended last week following the complaint.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I had a difference of opinion with a woman I’m working with,” Murray told CNBC. “I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t taken that way.”


He said, “We’re trying to make peace with each other. We’re both professionals. We like each other’s work. We like each other, I think.”

Murray continued, “The world is different than it was when I was a little kid. What I always thought was funny as a little kid isn’t necessarily the same as what’s funny now. Things change, and the times change.”

“It’s a sad dog that can’t learn anymore. I think that’s a really sad puppy. I don’t wanna be that sad dog, and I have no intention of it,” he said.

Murray added, “It’s been quite an education for me. I’ve been doing not much else but thinking about it for the last week or two. We’re talking about it. I think we’re going to make peace. I’m very optimistic about that. I think you have to be.”

Ben Dreyfuss, son of actor Richard Dreyfuss tweeted Sunday, “Last week when the Bill Murray news dropped, the reporter of a book that detailed his behavior on the set of What About Bob? tweeted about it & since I was there I quote tweeted it & confirmed it. According to the NYPost, this is apparently me ‘dining out.’ Bill Murray fans are very mad about the ‘allegations’ I made against Bill Murray, but I did no such thing. All these stories are already out there and I just confirmed them!”

“To be honest I used to tell the Bill Murray story all the time but I stopped a few years ago because I was like ‘ok well maybe he’s changed and it’s not nice to always bring up the past’ but apparently he hasn’t changed so I feel no guilt about sharing it. You’re still allowed to like Bill Murray movies even though he’s a prick. I like lots of Bill Murray movies.”

The story he was referring to came from veteran actor and Oscar-winner Richard Dreyfuss. In a 2019 interview, he made a disturbing allegation about Murray’s behavior on the set of the 1991 comedy “What About Bob?”

“I didn’t talk about it for years. … Bill just got drunk at dinner. He was an Irish drunken bully, is what he was. … He came back from dinner [one night] and I said, ‘Read this [script tweak], I think it’s really funny.’ And he put his face next to me, nose-to-nose,” Dreyfuss said. “And he screamed at the top of his lungs, ‘Everyone hates you! You are tolerated!’ There was no time to react, because he leaned back and he took a modern glass-blown ashtray. He threw it at my face from [only a couple feet away]. And it weighed about three quarters of a pound. And he missed me. He tried to hit me. I got up and left.”

CNN tweeted the interview of Murray explaining what led to the movie production being shutdown.

  1. If Bill Murray or any other actor behaves inappropriately to the point where he or she is making people very uncomfortable, he should be called out on it. If he apologizes, and that apology is accepted by the injured parties, and they all feel comfortable with moving forward to make the movie, then he should be allowed to do so. Infractions like this should not be swept under the rug but neither should entire careers be canceled when there are sincere apologies and a dedicated plan to change one’s behavior for the better.

  2. Men used to get away with boorish, sexist behavior which isn’t tolerated today. Many men grew up during that time and are now learning how unacceptable it is to be overbearing, especially toward women. It’s a learning curve now and some aren’t able to change, or don’t understand the need to.

  3. Bill is a show off and does a lot of wacky things just to get attention. Its unfortunate that alcohol is usually involved. I’ve had some interaction with his brothers and they make it clear they are a cut above everyone else in a smug sort of way. Bill is just outlandish and uncontrolled, IMHO.
