Why we love Morgan Freeman

  • Morgan Porterfield Freeman Jr. was born on 1st June 1937 in Memphis, USA. He is one of Hollywood's best-loved actors. He has starred in many box office hits including The Shawshank Redemption (1994), Batman Begins (2005) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), for which he won an Oscar® for Best Supporting Actor.
  • Freeman is famed for his authoritative voice, narrating several documentaries and movies. He has even been the voice of God – twice, in Bruce Almighty (2003) and Evan Almighty (2007). In 2008 Morgan Freeman was in a serious car accident on a Mississippi highway but emerged with only a broken arm, elbow and shoulder. He stayed calm even while he was being cut from the wreckage – even joking with some of the rescue workers!
  • He was working as a mechanic in the United States Air Force. In 2002 he made a private pilot's license and some years later he bought himself a private jet and flew halfway around the world.
