“I was a homeless man, a cab driver, a trucker”: Morgan Freeman is 85

"I was a homeless man, a cab driver, a trucker": Morgan Freeman is 85

Morgan Freeman was born June 1, 1937 in the family of a teacher and a hairdresser. He waited a long time for recognition in Hollywood – the first big role Freeman was entrusted only in 1980.

Many remember the actor from the films “Escape from Shawshank”, “Seven” and “Bruce Almighty.

Freeman won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in the film “Million Dollar Baby”, and in his career there were five nominations for the prestigious award.

Freeman is far from a bad actor, and his films are quite enjoyable without in any way endorsing his political leanings.

85 years old is a serious age, and learning something new at such an age is difficult.

So let’s wish the birthday boy to be at least at peace with himself, if he fails to do so in his relations with the world around him.
