Morgan Freeman has no problem being the butt of his own joke.

The 75-year-old actor caught some zzz’s earlier this week in the middle of a live TV interview with Now You See Me co-star Michael Caine, nodding off and jumping right back in for the next question.

Following the video, which quickly spread around the ‘Net, Freeman released the following statement to E! News:

“I wasn’t actually sleeping, I’m a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page.”

Ha! Take a look at the video below (skip ahead to about the 1:03 mark for Freeman’s cat nap).
