You know Morgan Freeman's deep, soothing voice as everything from the so-called "voice of God" to the authoritative, no-nonsense narrator behind your turn-by-turn directions. Now, the legendary actor has explained how he learned to speak so distinctly.
Days after shamelessly snacking on Girl Scout cookies onstage at the Oscars, Freeman sat down with Jimmy Kimmel and entertained the late night host's question about his ability to "talk like that." The legendary film star pointed to his days studying acting in college, and said, "I had a voice and diction instructor who was very good at his job." Basically, being modest never sounded so good.
