Morgan Freeman pays tribute to Nelson Mandela
Morgan Freeman has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela on the Former South African President's 94th birthday. Freeman is in London on a press junket to promote his latest movie, Batman: The Dark Knight Rises.
Freeman noted that more than Madiba himself, he "finds his story and thought processes very inspirational" before revealing that he was going to read to school kids while he's in London as part of a campaign called 67 minutes for Madiba. He also spoke about portraying Mandela in the 2008 movie, Invictus.
He was speaking to James O'Brien on London's LBC97.3. The full interview is here (subscription required).
