Morgan Freeman Falls Asleep In The Middle Of An Interview!

May 24, 2013  |  

There’s a lot that goes into promoting a new movie, including crazy work hours and early morning interviews for the flick’s starring cast. While out promoting his latest film Now You See Me, with co-star Michael Caine, 75-year-old actor Morgan Freeman dozed off in the middle of an interview with Q13 Fox News!

As Michael went on and on about the amazing CGI special effects used in the filming of Now You See Me and many other popular action films, Morgan can be seen seated next to him with fluttering eyelids in an apparent battle with the Sandman. Unfortunately, the Sandman won because only seconds later Uncle Morgan drifts into a quick nap. As the interview ensues, he briefly awakens from his slumber, but it doesn’t last long. Q13 Fox cuts to a brief clip from the movie, then the camera cuts back to Morgan, who has fallen back to sleep and is slouching to the side like a deacon trying to sneak in a nap before work on the last pew of a church! Towards the end of the video, Morgan wakes up and begins nodding in approval of his co-stars film technology explanations.

He later joked that he wasn’t sleeping, but testing a new Google product.

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

Oh Uncle Morgan, you slay us!
