Morgan Freeman appears to be on his way back to his sonorous old self again.
According to the actor’s rep, the Oscar winner suffered several broken bones Sunday in a single-car crash in Mississippi that authorities described as a “typical accident”—albeit one which necessitated the jaws of life and required Freeman and his passenger be airlifted to a nearby hospital.
But things are looking up.
“Morgan has a broken arm, elbow and has minor shoulder damage but was in good spirits when I spoke with him a short time ago at the Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center at the Med, a Level 1 Trauma Center at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis,” publicist Donna Lee said in a statement released this afternoon.
“He is having a little bit of surgery this afternoon or tomorrow to help correct the damage. He says he’ll be OK and is looking forward to a full recovery.”
(Collective sigh of relief.)
Mississippi Highway Patrol said that Freeman was behind the wheel of his friend’s 1997 Nissan Maxima when the accident occurred. Per authorities, the 71-year-old actor lost control of the vehicle and then overcorrected, causing the compact car to roll over several times.
Both Freeman and passenger, Demaris Meyer, apparently were wearing their seatbelts at the time and there is no sign that alcohol was involved.
“I think it’s safe to say no charges are planned,” MHP spokesman Officer Ben Williams told E! News.
Freeman and his wife, Myrna, have a home just a few miles from the accident site.
The actor’s rep also said that well-wishers are welcome to leave messages on the website of the hurricane-preparedness charity Plan!t Now, the Dark Knight player’s pet cause.
The Dark Knight has retained its top spot at the US box office for a remarkable third week in a row, consigning the new Mummy film, Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, to second spot on the latter’s debut.
Christopher Nolan’s Batman sequel pulled in another $43.8m (£22.2m) against the latter’s $42.5m (£21.5m), and now stands at No 8 in the all-time box office chart for highest grossing US films, with a Bat-tastic $395m (£200m). To put that in perspective, Sam Raimi’s hugely successful Spider-Man film, stands just above it at No 7 with £403m (£204m), a haul amassed over 15 weeks on general release; The Dark Knight was only released 17 days ago.
Analysts are now wondering if The Dark Knight can overtake the all-time champ, Titanic, which took $600m in the US. Much of that will depend on fans returning to see the film for a second and third time, which could keep the film in cinemas until November or longer.
The news is disappointing for the makers of The Mummy, as they would have considered themselves in with a good shout of downing The Dark Knight. Studio bosses had hoped for a much bigger opening, and the series which has now spawned three films (and a dubious spin-off) may have reached the end of its run.
The top five was rounded out by the previously released comedy Step Brothers at third place with $16m in its second week, the Abba musical Mamma Mia! was fourth with $13m in its third week, and the adventure tale Journey to the Center of the Earth, which, like the Mummy film, also stars Brendan Fraser, in fifth, with $6.8m in its fourth week.
Elsewhere on the chart, the only other new entry was the comedy Swing Vote, the tale of a presidential election which comes down to one man’s vote. It stars Kevin Costner, Dennis Hopper and Kelsey Grammer, and took $6.3m for sixth place.
However, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor did manage to beat The Dark Knight to the top spot outside the US, after opening at No 1 in 26 of its 28 markets over the weekend. It took an estimated $59m against The Dark Knight’s $37m in 51 countries.
Maggie Gyllenhaal says being by the ocean makes her felt sexy. The “Dark Knight” actress – who has a 20-month-old daughter Ramona with fiance Peter Sarsgaard – admits there is something about the “wildness” of the sea that has a profound effect on her.
She said: “Being around water, and in water, makes you feel so good. The ocean is really sexy, and the wilder and wavier the better!”
Maggie, 30, also claims every man should spoil their lover with expensive gifts. She added: “I think it’s the job of your lover to adorn you. My boyfriend gives me jewelry and it always looks great. Think about it – this person adores you. This is how he wants to see you.”
“This is what he wants to see on your neck, your hand, your ear. A man sometimes can see what you can’t. What is unconsciously beautiful or sexy about you if often the most compelling.”
