Dark reason behind why Morgan Freeman wears gold hoop earrings

Morgan Freeman has played a plethora of different characters across his 50 years in the film and tv industry, but one thing that’s never changed? His gold earrings.

The 85-year-old actor is often seen wearing his trademark gold hoops, with many fans speculating as to why he has chosen to wear them throughout his career – of which he has no plans to retire from anytime soon.

Despite earning millions, Freeman has yet to trade in his earrings and it’s for a very important reason.

He first started wearing the jewellery as a young man, aspiring to be like the actors he saw on the silver screen.

Sadly though, Freeman would struggle to gain a foothold in the industry before at 49-years-old, finally getting his big break with the film, Street Smart.

After landing the 1986 role, he quickly established himself as one of the most talented actors in Hollywood and even won an Oscar in 2005.

Having since appeared in blockbuster films like Bruce Almighty, The Dark Knight Rise and Deep Impact, Freeman is thought to have amassed a $250 million (£199m) fortune, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

However, he has never swapped out his classic gold hoops.

In a lengthy Instagram post, he told fans: “These earrings. I get asked all the time about them. The truth is, these are worth just enough for someone to buy me a coffin if I die in a strange place. That’s why sailors used to wear them and that’s why I do.”
