Oh no. Morgan Freeman has been in a car accident. The 71-year-old was rushed to hospital and apparently is in a serious condition. An unnamed woman was in the car with him.
I hate the sickening irony of posting this story, considering what I named my blog.
I really hope Morgan pulls through this OK. He’s just one of those people that is very likeable. Like everyone’s lovable but extremely cool grandad. He was in the last two films I saw at the cinema (Wanted and The Dark Knight) and I thought he was superb in both – in fact he’s always great. He even pulled off playing God in that rubbish film Bruce Almighty.
This is definitely going to start ‘curse’ gossip about The Dark Knight though. You know, like Poltergeist and Amityville Horror, where everyone connected to the film had nasty stuff happen to them. First Heath Ledger died, then Christian Bale got in trouble with the law and compromised his reputation, and now this? If I was a cast member of that film I’d be rocking back and forth in a locked room by now.
But seriously. I was actually planning to write about the film, but in a more positive light, because Heath’s acting 100 percent blew. Me. Away. The guy has to get an Oscar. And no, I’m not saying that just because he’s dead. You don’t see people saying that Anna Nicole Smith was actually quite a good actress, so why would people say it about Heath for the hell of it? The man was seriously, seriously talented. And so is Morgan.
Please recover quickly Morgan! We’re all thinking of you.
