WHY MORGAN FREEMAN WORE A GLOVE ON HIS LEFT ARM ONLY
Written by Lola Narawa on March 14, 2023
Freeman was involved in a car crash back in 2008, when he swerved off a Mississippi road and flipped over.
The actor had to be cut free by the emergency services and badly injured his left arm.
A local newspaper editor said at the time: “They had to use the jaws of life [hydraulic cutters] to extract him from the vehicle.
Despite being told that the pain would subside and he would see some improvement by 2011, Freeman is still unable to use his hand properly.
He now has to wear a compression glove in order to keep the blood flowing.
Speaking previously about the injury, Freeman said: “I suffered nerve damage and it hasn’t gotten better. I can’t move it.
“If you don’t move your hand, it will swell up. Do you know you move your hand about a million times a day?”
During an interview with Esquire a few years ago, Freeman was experiencing some pain in his left arm.
When asked about it, he told the reporter: “It’s the fibromyalgia. Up and down the arm. That’s where it gets so bad. Excruciating.”
