Actor Morgan Freeman sleeps off during a Live TV interview

Give him a break, he's 75...:-). The actor was caught sleeping on live TV during an interview with Fox News promoting his latest movie 'Now You See Me' with fellow actor Michael Caine, 80.

Michael Caine was answering a question when Morgan Freeman fell into a deep sleep...but woke up moments later and fully joined the early morning interview.

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.
LMAO! Nice comeback! He was actually sleeping, the statement is just a play off of Google Glass, a device which is supposed to allow users to update their social networks through a pair of glasses and access the internet through voice commands.

Linda the pappy don dey age na make una free but still him and Micheal caine and sean conrey and Clint east wood are the few legends remaining in Hollywood they are first class actors
let Morgan sleep after all he has Micheal caine to lean on and do all the talking about the new film am sure he was not asleep he was just having a telepathy with chinua Achebe they were good friends as a matter fact he told chinua to turn down the 1 million dolls fifty offered for the title things fall apart which Curtis Jackson wanted to use for his new flick
