Morgan Freeman Facts you may not know:

Since 2008 he has continued his profession regardless of living with the “excruciating” pain of fibromyalgia. Like many of us with FM, he doesn’t like to show his pain, So he always tries to hide his agony; he frequently reveals himself “acting” to conceal his ache. But he also admits that there are times when he fails to cover up what he is feeling.

Morgan’s life changed in a 2008 traffic accident wherein the car he was driving flipped and rolled over, causing intense accidents. This marked the onset of ongoing pain, followed by a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Although he avoids complaining about his situation, he has occasionally shared what it’s like to live with FM and the lifestyle changes it has forced upon him.
