Watching Ole Miss lose to Kentucky on Tuesday night likely didn’t dim the spirits of Academy Award-winning actor and Mississippi resident Morgan Freeman, who was on hand for the game.
Prior to tipoff, Freeman happily posed for photos with three Ole Miss cheerleaders. Some have commented on how it’s an awkward and/or creepy photo op, but then again, it’s not often that celebrities grace Rebels basketball games with their presence. It’s understandable if Ole Miss fans, players and cheerleaders want to make the most of that opportunity.
And it’s understandable if Freeman wants to enjoy it, too. After all, one of the more famous lines he’s delivered in a movie is, “Get busy livin’, or get busy dyin’.” Which is exactly what he’s doing in this photo.
