Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman has lost interest in awards shows in recent years and says he’s now just happy to spend time at home away from the limelight.

The Hollywood icon, who has won numerous awards throughout his career, including an Oscar and a Golden Globe, explains: “I don’t look at them anymore and I don’t know who’s there.

“I haven’t seen all the movies (nominated). I’m kind of a recluse now, so… (there’s) not quite the same fascination I remember with the prizes. All of them,” Morgan says.

Morgan Freeman starred in 1994’s ‘The Shawshank Redemption’, as a contraband smuggler.

While he wondered what it would be like to reprise the role, he also thinks “what happened next” should remain a mystery.

He told Sky News: “I think it’s best to do it in your mind. I really don’t think I would be that interested in going back and trying to recapture that. Although Tim (Robbins) and I are still very good friends.”

Earlier this month, Morgan Freeman admitted he is now “too old” to travel the world.

The acclaimed actor has no desire to fly around the world in his advanced years as he has already visited the places he wanted to see.

He said, “I’ve been all over the world once. I’m too old. I’ve done all the traveling that I especially want to do. There’s no place I want to go that I haven’t been before.”

Freeman also said he wouldn’t be able to escape prison in real life – despite his role in “The Shawshank Redemption.”

He said: “I don’t have the courage. It would take a tremendous amount of physical labor to dig your way out of a prison, so I would be in prison for life.”
