Number 10- He considered getting out of acting
At one point, Morgan Freeman actually thought of joining the US Air Force as a fighter pilot, as he was already involved with the force, but decided to keep on pursuing his acting career instead.

Number 9- It hasn’t stopped him getting his wings
In spite of Freeman concentrating on his acting, it didn’t stop him earning a private pilot licence in recent years, so he couldn’t fight the bug to get in the air completely!
Although he joined the Air Force as a mechanic, Morgan Freeman didn’t learn to fly until he was 65 years old. According to Fox News, Freeman owns a Cessna 414 and a Citation 501, but the aviation item on his bucket list is a Sino Swearingen SJ30 business jet, which costs a whopping $6.9 million. The actor has also lent his recognisable voice to marketing materials for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.

It’s not just a love of the freedom of flight that Morgan Freeman loves, he also has a boat that he owns in the Caribbean, but his busy schedule means he often only gets to spend time on it once a year. Freeman once said in an interview: I’ve always been interested in the sea. I was an avid reader as a child and a young man, and I was fascinated by books about the sea. Then, one day, when I was 30 years old, a man gave me a boat. It was in a reservoir in Vermont and I learned to sail it. Then I was hooked on sailing. That was in 1967 and I’ve been doing it ever since
