ACADEMY AWARD-winning Actor MORGAN FREEMAN covers the February/March 2017 issue of AARP Magazine!!!
Here are some interview interludes:
On his younger days as a Lady-Killer:
“Was I a lady-killer in those days? Big time. Big time. Tall and good looking, what was my secret. We went to 14 cities. A lot of the places were colleges, so it was a feeding ground. But then the show ended, and there was no work. The magic wore off. I got a job and Nedick’s, which was like McDonald’s before McDonald’s caught on.” The lady-killer? He started selling hot dogs.”
On getting the Stamp of Approval from legendary Actor SIDNEY POITIER:
“I’m 50 years old, playing off-Broadway opposite the incredible Dana Ivey. Driving Miss Daisy changed everything. We heard Warner Bros. was making the movie, but they never hire New York actors. When the movie’s director, Bruce Beresford came backstage, I said, ‘So, do I get the job?’ he said, ‘You’re kinda young.’ He wanted Sidney Poitier. But when they went to Sidney, Sidney said, ‘Go with the kid.”
