We previously reported about a Bill Murray production that was suspended on the film that also featured Seth Rogen and was supposed to be the directorial debut for Aziz Ansari.
Apparently, someone lodged a complaint specifically against Bill, which caused the first suspension. When an investigation was launched into his behavior, it was suspended indefinitely. Now a source is saying, “He was very hands-on touchy, not in any personal areas, but put an arm around a woman, touched her hair, pulled her ponytail — but always in a comedic way. It is a fine line and everybody loves Bill, but while his conduct is not illegal, some women felt uncomfortable and he crossed a line.”
Another source says that the “Saturday Night Live” alum, who appears to be single, “Loves women and loves to flirt, he enjoys poetry and romance, he’s always flirting, but it is always couched in comedy. It isn’t clear if he crossed a line.”
Meanwhile, this may not be isn’t Bill’s first time behaving badly on a set. According to Richard Dreyfuss’ son, Ben, a bodyguard had to be hired on the set of 1991’s “What About Bob?” Word was he got mad because the late producer Laura Ziskin wouldn’t give him a day off. He allegedly ripped off her glasses off her face. When Richard complained about it, Ben says Bill threw an ashtray at him. “My dad complained about his behavior,” Ben adds, “And Bill Murray threw an ashtray at him. Everyone walked off the production and flew back to LA and it only resumed after Disney hired some bodyguards to physically separate my dad and Bill Murray in between takes.”
