Watch Morgan Freeman Fall Asleep During a Live Interview

Yahoo Celebrity

Update: Morgan Freeman issued this pretty awesome statement: "I wasn't actually sleeping. I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page."

Being an Academy Award winner can be exhausting!

While promoting "Now You See Me" alongside Michael Caine on the Seattle program "Q13 Fox News This Morning," it appears as if Morgan Freeman nodded off while Caine, 80, was talking about magic tricks.

Freeman, 75, can be seen closing his eyes while his head bobs up and down before jolting back awake (then the cycle repeats all over again). To be fair, this interview took place the morning after their big premiere in New York City.

Somehow Freeman managed to pull himself together by the end of the interview when he was asked to give tips on how to be a good narrator. (Maybe the actor took a shot of Red Bull as clips from "Now You See Me" flashed on screen?)

Watch the video and judge for yourself.
