"I couldn't get anything done all day long. I was just walking around the hotel room just forgetting everything, toothbrush, phone, watch, couldn't find anything."

Bill added, "It was a lot of nerves to get here, but it's sure fun now. I had a really big smile on my face earlier. My jaw was hurting."

The actor is currently in production for Being Mortal after he was accused of sexual misconduct on the set in April 2022. At the time, Bill spoke to CNBC, saying he "had a difference of opinion" with a woman working on the production. Other actors, including Lucy Liu, Geena Davis and Seth Green, have since spoken out and shared negative experiences of working with him on set.
