And while the Oscars were held last weekend, Morgan Freeman an Academy Award winner and ‘Best Picture’ presenter argues
“I’m not quite sure that there is a diversity issue in Hollywood. There were no Asians, either. I think if you’re going to talk about diversity in movies, let’s not talk about the Academy Awards. We need to go way way back, we need to go back to people who are making the movie: directors, producers and people behind the camera.”
Although the Oscar winner has been in his fair share of movies, he’s not shy to admit what few actors will: sometimes he takes roles for the money. He shares,
“Yes [it’s an art], but I don’t want to die a pauper.
