When youâ€™re Morgan Freeman, i imagine that there are few things you are obligated to do in life. Staying awake during a live television interview for a local news program youâ€™ve never heard of is not one of them.
Morgan Freeman is busy making so many movies, heâ€™s entitled to nap every now and then. Usually, though, it doesnâ€™t happen on live TV.
The Oscar winner was beside his Now You See Me co-star Michael Caine for a satellite chat with KCPQ in Seattle â€” but was too sleepy to keep his eyes open.
Awkwardly the presenters never actually tried to wake Freeman – and instead just continue the interview with Caine who seemed oblivious.
After the video went viral, Morgan released a statement toÂ E! NewsÂ saying:
I wasnâ€™t actually sleeping, Iâ€™m a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merelyÂ updating my Facebook page.
Nice excuse. Lol!
