Morgan Freeman Calls Will Smith Movie ‘Stupid’ & Wants Marijuana Legalized
You always know when an older person is in that stage of life where they just don’t really give a damn and speak their mind. Morgan Freeman has firmly planted his flag in the land of IsaywhateverIwantville and will not be moved. He recently was interviewed by Newsweek about his upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises and a host of other topics. One topic they brought up was rumors that Black Panther, a Black superhero, just may become a movie. Morgan quickly reminded us that there WAS a superhero movie starring a black actor, Will Smith. And he was not entertained:
Marvel’s talking about creating the first Hollywood film centered on a black superhero, Black Panther. Symbolically, it could be a big deal for black actors.
Well, if the movie is done well. Will Smith did one [Hancock] that was kind of silly. I don’t know why they even did that movie. But if they do Black Panther with some class and some creativity, I think it would go over big-time.
He basically said Will just wasted some movie film. DAMN. Morgan also went on to talk about the criminalization of marijuana and how it was just a horrible, horrible idea:
You’ve also been a big proponent of the legalization of marijuana.
Marijuana! Heavens, oh yeah. It’s just the stupidest law possible, given history. You don’t stop people from doing what they want to do, so forget about making it unlawful. You’re just making criminals out of people who aren’t engaged in criminal activity. And we’re spending zillions of dollars trying to fight a war we can’t win! We could make zillions, just legalize it and tax it like we do liquor. It’s stupid.
Personally, I think he DOES have a good point there. It’s not a synthetic drug, it’s a natural plant. And it’s even prescribed by doctors as a medical treatment. Points to you, Mr. Freeman!
