Pictured: Actors Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman isn’t a young man anymore, but he works as if he were just 22 years old. The 75-year old actor has created some unwanted buzz for himself by falling asleep during a live interview. The interview was super early in the morning and he didn’t seem to want to do it.
Freeman was promoting a new film, “Now You See Me” co-starring Michael Caine when it all went down. The actors were being asked about the film, and Caine was giving a lively response, when it appeared that Freeman had just had enough. His eyes were closed and he wasn’t responsive, which has created a frenzy on the Internet, since none of us have ever seen an actor do something like this. But hey, if you’ve done one press junket, you done them all, at least if you’re Morgan Freeman.
Freeman has received Academy Award nominations for his performances in Street Smart, Driving Miss Daisy, The Shawshank Redemption and Invictus and won in 2005 for Million Dollar Baby. Freeman was discovered nationally for his roles on “Another World,” and “The Electric Company.” Since then, his smooth voice and amazing acting ability have graced screens for the last 40 years.
When you have that kind of star power, you can fall asleep every now and then, and nobody is going to say anything about it. We just hope that he isn’t communicating that his film is going to put audience members to sleep as well.
