‘I Did Something I Thought Was Funny, And It Wasn’t Taken That Way’

Bill Murray reportedly paid $100,000 to settle a complaint a woman made about him allegedly sexually assaulting her on a film set.

Back in April, Murray was accused of “inappropriate behavior” while on the set of a film called Being Mortal; its production was shut down the same month, The Guardian reports.

The woman claimed the 72-year-old actor straddled a young female production assistant when the two were in “close proximity” to a bed on the set. He then allegedly kissed the girl on the mouth; both of them were wearing masks. While Murray said his actions were made in jest, the woman says the situation was horrifying and took it as him being sexual towards her.

“I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t taken that way,” said Murray during an interview with CNBC, describing the incident as a “difference of opinion.” “The movie studio wanted to do the right thing so they wanted to check it all out, investigate it, and so they stopped the production.”

The woman’s complaint was accompanied by another worker who saw the alleged assault take place. While production was paused, Searchlight Pictures didn’t release Murray’s name while the two settled the issue. The woman was paid $100,000 with the agreement to keep the incident confidential in addition to forging her right to make a legal claim against Being Mortal producers, The Guardian reports.
