Morgan Freeman’s hand still not fake -- chill, people, OK?

So last year after a serious car accident, Morgan Freeman had surgery on his left arm, elbow and shoulder -- and now while he’s out doing press for ‘Invictus,’ people aren’t seeing the hand on that arm do very much at all.

And he’s wearing one glove. Which nobody’s ever done before.

Especially after surgery.

So that must mean it’s a fake hand?

Funny -- in January, he told Access Hollywood that his hand was still paralyzed ‘until the nerves get down there’ after all that damage.


Then people ran this drill again in February after the Grammy Awards. And the rumor keeps popping up on discussion boards Internet-wide, mostly accompanied by words we can’t repeat and astute observations about human nature.

Patience, people, patience.And don’t believe everything you read on the Interwebs, OK? Though most of this next part is true:

Hugh Laurie‘s hand was following the Ministry’s personal Twitter feed for a stretch earlier this year, but it seems to have lost interest and hasn’t tweeted much lately.

We were crushed, but perhaps Hugh’s hand is hanging out with Morgan’s now, and the two just want some privacy?
