Oscar winning actor Morgan Freeman has become increasingly outspoken recently.
Now he’s sharing his thoughts on the critically acclaimed drama 12 Years a Slave.
Despite garnering stellar reviews and considerable Oscar buzz, Freeman intends to skip seeing the movie.
“I saw a television movie that was made a few years ago about the same character [Solomon Northup]. But I don’t particularly want to see it,” he told the Daily Beast. “I don’t want my anger quotient exacerbated, you know? Things are bad enough as they are. I don’t want to keep punching myself in the face with it.”
