In a recent interview that left us in splits, the iconic Morgan Freeman spilled the beans on his thoughts about none other than Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce. The 86-year-old Oscar-winning legend, who happens to be a massive Kansas City Chiefs fan, was faced with some unexpected, but highly amusing questions.
Gayle King from CBS Mornings dove right into it, asking, “You’re a big Kansas City Chiefs fan, is that true?” Morgan’s response? A resounding “Yes.” But that was just the tip of the iceberg.
Gayle, ever the inquisitive soul, went on, “So how are you feeling about Taylor and Travis? Is it keeping you up at night? Are you in favor?” Vladimir Duthiers chimed in, adding, “Are you a Swiftie, Mr. Freeman?” The questions were coming faster than a touchdown rush!
Amidst this whirlwind of pop culture curiosity, Nate Burleson weighed in with, “Travis is playing better than ever.” But the moment of truth arrived when Gayle pressed further, asking, “So what are you thinking, Morgan Freeman, about this?” And here’s where the hilarity peaked.
Morgan Freeman, with a look of sheer bewilderment and an incessant headshake, delivered a response that was as blunt as it was honest. He said, with an enigmatic smile, “I don’t… think about them… at all.” The collective reaction? Vladimir echoed, “I don’t… think about them… at all.”
Morgan, true to his Chiefs-loving spirit, emphasized, “All you care about is the touchdowns and wins.” To which Nate brilliantly chimed in, “Yeah, are you winning? Great, OK.” And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Morgan raved, “Now, it’s great to watch [quarterback Patrick Mahomes] run. He’s got a rifle for an arm, so that’s all good. So that’s what I’m interested in.” Touché, Mr. Freeman, touché. The world might be talking Taylor and Travis, but Morgan’s heart belongs to the game!
