Bill Murray says that unlike what the media says about him, his film “Being Mortal” was canceled because of “differences of opinion” and not because of complaints about his conduct.
“I had a difference of opinion with a woman I’m working with. I thought it had been funny, but nobody took it that way,” the actor said in an interview with Becky Quick on CNBC on Saturday.
“I haven’t done anything else but think about what happened a week or two ago… the world is different from when I was a little kid,” he said.
“What I always thought was funny when I was little isn’t necessarily as funny now. Things change and time has changed. So it’s important for me to think about that.”
Murray did not reveal the identity of the other person with whom he had the problem, however, he assured that he is trying to “make peace with that person.”
“We are both professionals, we like each other’s work, I think,” he added. “If we can’t get along and trust each other there’s no point in moving forward, working together or making the film.”
