Being a movie star may seem glamorous, until you see this interview Michael Caine, 80, and Morgan Freeman, 75, gave to Fox’s Seattle-Tacoma affiliate TV station, Q13, on Wednesday.
As anchors Kaci Aitchison and Bill Wixey discussed magic tricks with Caine to promoteNow You See Me, Freeman showed he was in serious need of a nap. His eyes closed at times. And when the camera came back from showing a clip, his head was drooping way down on his chest.
It didn’t prevent Caine from merrily explaining the tricks in the film. Freeman woke to nod now and then. And when he asked the question: “What is the key to being a great narrator?,” Freeman responded with, “Uh, probably just being a good reader.”
UPDATE: Freeman sent USA TODAY a statement about his interview: “I wasn’t actually sleeping. I’m a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page.”
