If you had an opportunity to ask Morgan Freeman one question, what would it be? Seriously, think about it. Now that you’ve taken a moment to contemplate, if your answer is, “Can you record my voicemail?”, you are not alone.
Apparently, fans ask Freeman this very question regularly and according to the actor, it gets exhausting.
During Wednesday night’s appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the actor revealed, “You know, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said, ‘Hello, this is so and so … is not willing to come to the phone right now.”
Morgan did, however, record a message for Zac Braff after losing a bet to him. Turns out, losing a bet is the only way to now get Freeman to be the voice behind your answering machine. “I have to lose a big bet. It gets exhausting,” he said.
Meanwhile, Morgan doesn’t have his own voice on his own voicemail. Instead, the actor enlisted that of a Southern man with a Mississippi draw. The man says on the 79-year-old actor’s answering service, “Hello, leave a number.”
