Cuba Gooding Jr.

Morgan Freeman Honored At AFI

One of my favorite actors was honored last night in LA and I guess I’m not the only one who thinks Morgan Freeman is great, a whole host of A-listers turned out in support too.

Freeman was the recipient of the The AFI Life Achievement award and was joined by the likes of Dame Helen Mirren, Forest Whitaker, Matthew McConaughey, Cuba Gooding Junior and of course his very proud family.

With 93 acting credits to his name, Freeman is totally deserving of this award. Amongst my favorite movies with Freeman have to be Seven and Shawshank Redemption, both quite serious films. He’s not only terrific in those but brilliant in a quiet comedic way in Bruce Almighty.

Congrats Mr Freeman!

Cuba Gooding, Jr. Hangs Out in LA

Cuba Gooding, Jr. went out in Los Angeles last night, and he’s got a certain look in his eyes that brings back memories for me. Memories of frat parties in college, when the Steelers won the Super Bowl and that one time I put my bra in a blender after a few too many cups of Gatorade and vodka (fade-orade is what we called it). I’m not insinuating that Cuba here was drunk, I’m just saying I get that same look from time to time (and it usually takes at least two days to recover).

On another note, what is that on his shirt where the heart is supposed to be? Is it a lamp? A gun? An upside down four-poster bed? I know a lot of people read this, I’m sure at least one of you can tell me in the comments section.
