Morgan Freeman on Falling Asleep in Mid-Interview: Just Beta Testing Google Eyelids!

by at . Comments

Gotta hand it to Morgan Freeman on this one.

After falling asleep during a live interview with a Seattle TV station and leaving Now You See Me co-star Michael Caine to field the questions, the snooze-fest went viral.

But the self-aware actor later told People in a statement, "I wasn't actually sleeping. I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page!"

About halfway through the interview about the film, which opens May 31, the 75-year-old Freeman nodded off as clips from the movie were shown.

When the cameras returned to the legendary pair, his head was down and his eyes were shut for a minute at least while Caine continued the Q&A.

Who knew Morgan was so high tech.
