Morgan Freeman is NOT retiring.

The future of the celebrated actor’s career was the subject of bogus tabloid rumors this week, with many outlets picking up a story that claimed Freeman was leaving show business.

Just like some death hoaxes involving the star, the rumor is 100 percent false.

Freeman himself has addressed the phony story.

“To once again paraphrase Mark Twain, the news of my retirement is greatly exaggerated,” he tells Gossip Cop. “I have no intention of retiring now or any time in the next several decades.”

There you have it.
