Morgan Freeman is adding another lifetime achievement prize to his mantelpiece. AARP said yesterday the actor will receive its Movies for Grownups Career Achievement Award at a gala ceremony next year.



The 79- year-old actor has already received the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award, the Golden Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille Award and a National Medal of the Arts from President Barack Obama.

“At a certain point in life, if you’ve had some success, awards start to fall from the sky. But this one really means something,” Freeman said in a statement.

“I started my movie career at 50 and some of the best years happened since then.” He will accept the AARP honor at a dinner Feb 6 in Beverly Hills, California.

Previous recipients of the Movies for Grownups Career Achievement Award include Michael Douglas, Susan Sarandon, Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Robert Redford.



Freeman won an Academy Award for 2004’s “Million Dollar Baby” and has received four other nominations. His most recent film credits are “Ben-Hur” and “Now You See Me 2.” — AP
