Morgan Freeman Recalls Nearly Flunking Acting Class on 'Regis and Kelly' (VIDEO)

Morgan Freeman may be a consummate, Oscar-winning actor, but you wouldn't necessarily know it from his college transcripts. According to Freeman, he nearly flunked acting class, earning himself a barely passing grade, he said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

"I got a 'D.' I don't know why. Well, I do know why. I wasn't paying attention," Freeman admitted. Still, the sheer range of acting classes that Freeman took greatly impresses Regis Philbin.

"My acting days got by me," Philbin said. "I just shied away from it because I didn't think I'd ever have the talent to get in front of a camera ... So, when I hear a guy rattle off all these courses he took, [which] made him a multitalented person, I envy you."

But Freeman seems to place more emphasis on natural acting ability. "I don't think anything makes you multitalented," he said. "I think ... you are and you can enhance it."

A minor correction about Morgan Freeman's marriage to his step granddaughter. There's actually a 45-year age difference between them. He was 72 and she was 27 when they got married. She was 17 and he was 62 and married when their "relationship" began. After his wife divorced him, he married his granddaughter.

So I guess Morgan Freeman didn't talk about marrying his step-granddaughter ..... Granted, this is not as bad as an incestual relationship with a blood relative, but it's seems incestual and just a little sick (actually, a lot sick). There's only a 31-year age difference between them, but that may not be unusual for Hollywood relationships -- but it's the granddaughter-grandfather relationship that seems so sick.
