Morgan Freeman Feeling ‘Real Good’ After Hospital Release

Morgan Freeman has been released from a Tennessee hospital – and says he is glad to be on the upswing.

“I left the hospital today just after 12 noon, Memphis time,” Freeman said in a statement released by his rep to people. “I’m doing very well. I feel real good. I just really, I thank the staff at ‘Elvis Presley [Hospital]’ and many, many thanks to my many well-wishers. It’s great to know people care about you.”

Kathy Stringer at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis confirmed on Thursday that the Oscar winner has been released.

Freeman, 71, was driving in Mississippi’s Tallahatchie County late Sunday when the accident occurred and his car flipped over. Extracted from the wreck by emergency crews using the jaws of life, the Dark Knight actor was said to be “in good spirits” Monday after being airlifted to the medical facility.

Also on Thursday, Freeman’s lawyer confirmed that the actor and his wife since 1984, Myrna Colley-Lee, were divorcing.

Freeman will have to wear a neck brace for six to eight months, according to attorney Bill Luckett, who added: “The doctors have said it will be six months to a year before he plays golf again. He hates that.”
