    In a candid confession, Bill Murray, the 71-year-old Hollywood stalwart, has opened up about an incident that led to the abrupt halt of the production of his latest film, 'Being Mortal'. The actor calls the occurrence a "difference of opinion" which wasn't perceived as he had expected. This has since led to a tumultuous period for Murray and the unnamed woman involved.

    "I did something I thought was funny and it wasn't taken that way"

    Murray's confrontation with changing humor standards stands as a testament to shifting societal norms. His attempt at a joke, he admits, was not seen in the same light by everyone, leading to a complaint that resulted in the suspension of the film's production. "The movie studio wanted to do the right thing so they wanted to check it all out, investigate it and so they stopped the production," Murray told CNBC.

    He is now engaged in an ongoing dialogue with the woman, seeking reconciliation. "We're both professionals. We like each other's work. We like each other I think, and if you can't really get along and trust each other, there's no point in going further working together or making a movie as well."

    The production house, Searchlight Pictures, confirmed the halt but did not provide any further details due to an ongoing inquiry. According to Deadline, the complaint against Murray was lodged a few weeks prior, and the production was brought to a standstill shortly after.

    "It's been quite an education for me"

    The Ghostbusters and Caddyshack comedian alluded to a steep learning curve amidst changing humor paradigms. Murray believes it is a testament to the changing world. "The world is different than it was when I was a little kid. What I always thought was funny as a little kid isn't necessarily the same as what's funny now. Things change and the times change, so it's important for me to figure it out."

    Staying relevant and understanding the shifting societal landscape has now become Murray's mission. "I think it's a sad dog that can't learn anymore. I don't want to be that sad dog and I have no intention of it."

    As reported by The Guardian, 'Being Mortal' features Murray, Seth Rogen, and Aziz Ansari, with the latter also donning the hats of writer, director, and producer for the movie. The future of the film's production, however, remains uncertain.
