Morgan Freeman is at the center of a weird “marriage proposal” hoax first shared on Reddit and then picked up by outlets including The Huffington Post.

On Thursday, a Redditor named Jake claimed that he had “sent a letter to Morgan Freeman asking if he would marry me,” and that, in response, he’d received a signed headshot (see below).

The picture shows a smiling Freeman and the message, “To Jake: Keep dreaming.”

Amusing.

But fake.

A rep for Freeman tells Gossip Cop the acclaimed actor has never used that picture, nor provided that quote.

The signature also looks nothing like Freeman’s.

“Someone has played a practical joke on Jake,” we’re told.
