Morgan Freeman is one of my favorite actors. Winner of an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors Guild Award, he is one of the most popular actors of our time. It turns out he’s even more significant—at least in his own mind.
In a recent interview, Freeman was asked, “Do you think there is a God?” His answer: “Do I think there’s a God? Um (pause) yeah.” “You paused,” the interviewer noted. “I paused because I am God.” “Because every man is created in God’s image,” the interviewer replied. Freeman: “Yes or God’s created in my image.”
