After more than 40 years of film career, Bill Murray continues to chain film shoots. But this prosperity could well be threatened by the behavior of the actor. Indeed, while he was shooting Being mortal, a film directed by Aziz Ansari, the latter was the subject of a complaint from a colleague for “inappropriate behavior”. A twist that led to the suspension of filming, the time that the production investigates what had happened. This Sunday, in an interview with CNBC, Bill Murray broke the silence on this matter. “I had a difference of opinion with a woman I was working with. I did something that I thought was funny and it wasn’t taken that way. The producers wanted to make it right and check, investigate and they therefore stopped production”, explained the actor, without saying more about this “joke” which had drawn a blank. He nevertheless clarified that discussions were underway to try to “make peace”. “We are both professionals, we love each other’s work and we appreciate each other I think. If we can’t get along and trust each other, there’s no point in continuing our collaboration. or make a movie,” he said.
Bill Murray: ‘Things have changed’
Bill Murray then spoke about the evolution of mentalities, recognizing that we had to adapt to the changing times. “What I thought was funny as a child isn’t necessarily funny today. Things have changed and so have the times. So it’s important for me to understand that and I think the most important thing is that it’s better for the other person,” he concluded.
