Morgan Freeman will not have to return his 2018 Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award

Morgan Freeman will now reportedly not have to give up his 2018 Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award following the union officials' independent investigation into claims of misconduct against him.

SAG-AFTRA bosses launched the investigation in May after 8 women came forward with allegations of harassment and inappropriate behavior against Freeman, as part of a CNN expose.

The union officials announced they were considering corrective actions with regard to the honor, handed to the actor a month before the release of a SAG-AFTRA Sexual Harassment Code of Conduct, which detailed behavior deemed unsuitable and inappropriate by members. But Freeman will keep his award.

A new statement from a union spokesperson reads: Based on the results of an independent investigation and the information we have at this time, we are taking no action regarding the SAG Life Achievement Award presented to Morgan Freeman.

The details of the investigation will remain confidential.

Freeman quickly apologized after the CNN report was published online, insisting it was never his intention to intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy.

He added: I did not create unsafe work environments. I did not assault women. I did not offer employment or advancement in exchange for sex. Any suggestion that I did so is completely false.
