Morgan Freeman fell victim to death hoax. The "Oblivion" actor is alive and well despite reports circulating on Facebook that he suddenly passed away. A page has been created on the social network and gained more than 60,000 "likes".

A representative told E! Online in a statement, "Morgan is alive and well, and joins the long list of actors who have been victimized by this hoax." Upon closer look, the "about" section of the Facebook page also said, "He's still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet." The 75-year-old actor is no stranger to death rumors. He was hit with the same claim two years ago on Twitter.

Another rumor about him has also been debunked. Morgan is not the voice narrating a "Fifty Shades of Grey" clip. Rather, it was actor-comedian Josh Robert Thompson who has impersonated Morgan and other actors for years.

It shock me to hear about the death of Me. Freeman. That is a real mean thing to do. I thank God it was not true and to bless Mr. Freeman with health so he can live many more years. We here in the U.S. Virgin Islands love you & admire you Mr. Freeman.

not really, the site did at least tell the truth, if viewers actually bothered to read it all. there are far worse things on the net im sure. its a good lessen that many do need to learn-not to believe everything they read on the net, and nowadays, just about every other form of media too. its almost all lies, LOL
