Oscars 2023: Why was Morgan Freeman only wearing one glove?
Oscar viewers noted that Morgan Freeman wore a single glove during Sunday’s (March 12) ceremony.
The Shawshank Redemption Star presented a Warner Bros. 100th Anniversary Sizzle reel alongside Margot Robbie at the 95th Academy Awards.
Freeman took the stage with a black glove on his left hand, leaving some fans confused.
The 85-year-old actor previously revealed his left hand was paralyzed after a serious car accident in 2008.
Freeman had to be cut out of his vehicle and flown to the hospital by emergency responders after his vehicle overturned several times on a Mississippi freeway.
“They had to use the jaws of life [hydraulic cutters] to get him out of the vehicle,” said an editor of a local newspaper The guard at that time. “He was clear, conscious. He once chatted and joked with some of the rescue workers.”
As a result, Freeman has to wear a compression glove to keep the blood flowing in his left hand.
“I suffered nerve damage and it hasn’t gotten any better. I can’t move it,” he said told People in 2010.
“If you don’t move your hand, it will swell. Do you know that you move your hand about a million times a day?”
He also told it esquire that the condition causes pain “up and down the arm.” That’s where it gets so bad. Pitiful”.
