Too old for this? Morgan Freeman sleeps off during Live TV Interview



When you’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 you’ve never heard of is not one of them.

Morgan Freeman is busy making so many movies, he’s entitled to nap every now and then. Usually, though, it doesn’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 — 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 to E! News saying:

I wasn’t actually sleeping, I’m a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page.

Nice excuse. Lol!
