According to Morgan Freeman, the surest way to lose is to quit.
“Showbiz is my life,” the 80-year-old actor said in the SAG Awards press room Sunday night after being honored for his life achievement as a working actor. “The inference might be to get off the stage, you’re done. It might, you don’t know. My hope is that that’s not the case, that they’re saying, ‘Congrats so far.’”
Freeman noted that since his first performance — he was Little Boy Blue in a pageant when he was 8 — success has been far from assured. He thought his 15 minutes were up after he finished shooting the TV movie “The Marva Collins Story” with Cicely Tyson.
