According to a report in CNN , a young production assistant has reported a first-hand account of what happened with her. He reportedly kept trying to lift her skirt and touch her inappropriately. Another woman who worked on the sets of ‘Now You See Me’ spoke for herself and another assistant on set saying, “He did comment on our bodies… We knew that if he was coming by … not to wear any top that would show our breasts, not to wear anything that would show our bottoms, meaning not wearing clothes that [were] fitted.” With an experience that spans over 50 years, the actor enjoyed a highly reputed stature and respect in the film fraternity and amongst his fans. Lately, rumours of him having an affair with his step-granddaughter had been doing the rounds.
