Morgan Freeman won’t see ’12 Years a Slave’

Oscar winning actor Morgan Freeman has become increasingly outspoken recently.

He’s weighed in on everything from the legalization of marijuana to Tea Party Republicans, who the Last Vegas star considers “racist.”

Now he’s sharing his thoughts on the critically acclaimed drama 12 Years a Slave.

Despite garnering stellar reviews and considerable Oscar buzz, Freeman intends to skip seeing the movie.

“I saw a television movie that was made a few years ago about the same character [Solomon Northup]. But I don’t particularly want to see it,” he told the Daily Beast. “I don’t want my anger quotient exacerbated, you know? Things are bad enough as they are. I don’t want to keep punching myself in the face with it.”
