Bill Murray discuss allegation of “inappropriate behavior” against him in a group being deadly Saturday for the first time.

Talking to CNBC At Berkshire Hathaway’s 2022 annual shareholder meeting, the actor spoke at length about the situation that halted production of the film amid an investigation into the crash.

“I had a different opinion of a woman I was working with,” Murray said. “I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t taken that way.”

He continued, “The company, the film studio, wanted to do the right thing, so they wanted to check everything, investigate, and so they stopped production.”

Murray did not detail what motivated the “inappropriate behavior” allegation, nor did he reveal which female co-workers had filed the complaint.

“But so far, we’re talking, trying to make peace with each other. I think that’s where the real issue lies, between our peaces,” Murray said. We love each other’s work. We love each other, I guess, and if you can’t really get along and trust each other, then there’s no point in moving on together or making a movie either.”

Murray added that he was “very optimistic” that he and the woman would “make peace” that would allow them to resume working together on the film directed by Aziz Ansari.

“It was a good education for me,” said the contrite Murray. “And I feel like if I didn’t see it, you know the world is different than it was when I was a little kid. What I always thought was funny when I was a little kid isn’t necessarily the same funny thing now. Things change, times change, so it’s important for me to find out That. And I think the most important thing is that it’s best for the other person. I thought about it, and if it’s not better for the other person, it doesn’t matter what happens to me.”

“I really think he’s a really sad puppy who can’t learn anymore,” Murray said. “I don’t want to be that sad dog, and I have no intention of that. What makes me happiest is to put my shoes on and for both of us to go back to work and be able to trust each other and work on the work we spent so much time developing a skill, hopefully we will Something that’s useful for more than just two people, but for a whole crew of people, a whole crew of filmmakers. And the movie studio too.”

“I feel like I’ve learned more in the last year or two than I’ve learned in a decade of my life before,” he added.
