It turns out that Morgan Freeman and his wife of 24 years, costume designer Myrna Colley-Lee, have been separated since December 2007 and are currently in the process of divorcing.
Perhaps that explains why Freeman was out past his bedtime — at 11:30 pm — driving female passenger Demaris Meyer to his house. It’s been rumored that Freeman fell asleep at the wheel, causing the accident.
It’s so disappointing to see long-term Hollywood couples split up. Does marriage work for absolutely no one these days?

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward – 50 years as a married couple.
ironically, paul newman left his wife and small children for joanne woodward, so people on this site would lambaste them.
He fell asleep at the wheel!?
Old people should not be driving.
That’s too bad he’s getting divorced after all that time. I feel sorry for him and his wife.
I thought it was an open secret that he was always cheating on her? I also read it recently in Bruce Beresford’s book. Guess it wore a little thin..
These are HOLLYWOOD marriages. Key word. Marriage works for loads of people who aren’t celebrities.
Finally Morgan.. you’re famous dude. It was about time you traded up. JK.. always sad when a marriage fails
