Geena Davis is a towering personality in Hollywood. She has played a variety of memorable roles over the years, from housewife-turned-outlaw Thelma in the feminist classic Thelma & Louise to her Oscar-winning performance as a funny dog trainer in The Accidental Tourist. Davis is now opening up about her uncomfortable experiences in the industry.

Davis, 66 appeared for an interview with i magazine and spoke about her unpleasant experience with Bill Murray. She described a TV interview she did with Murray to promote his 1990 movie Quick Change as “awful”.

In the interview which is still available to watch online, Murray took down her dress strap and repeatedly touched her arm. Davis said her audition wasn’t any different from this and it was “a lot like this in fact.” The actress revealed Murray unbuttoned her shirt and began tickling her stomach.

I did have to audition. It was a lot like this in fact. Yeah, I swear, The first thing he did was take my shirt out of my pants and start tickling my stomach. I forgot that. Telling it that way, just as a humorous anecdote, I must have thought, ‘Well, it’s ultimately funny, or makes a good story,’ when in fact it was so devastating.

Murray is at the center of public attention as he is now facing an avalanche of similar new accusations from people he has worked with in the past. Davis recently also talked about inappropriate advances Jack Nicholson made towards her.
