Morgan Freeman dozes off mid-interview
MANILA, Philippines - Veteran Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman was caught on camera dozing off in an interview for his upcoming film, "Now You See Me," reported the Daily Mail.
The 75-year-old actor was seen dozing off while co-star Michael Caine went on about their new heist movie.
Freeman, however, coined an alibi for sleeping on the job. The actor claims to have been testing a new Google invention called "Google Eyelids."
"Regarding my recent interview, I wasn't actually sleeping," he explained.
"I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids and I was merely taking the opportunity to update my Facebook page," jested Freeman in a post coupled with a picture of himself giving a thumbs-up.
Freeman plays Thaddeus Bradley, the so-called debunker in "Now You See Me," where a group of magicians double as skilled high-profile thieves.
The film is set for release in US theaters on May 31.
