The Oscars awards gala, presented by Jimmy Kimmel, has been full of exciting moments, such as John Travolta’s broken voice when presenting the ‘In memoriam’, Jamie Lee Curtis’s speech or the brilliant and applauded performances of Rihanna and Lady Gaga. There have also been surprising moments such as the appearance of Margot Robbie, who appeared on stage without having passed through the champagne carpet.
The actress stepped on the stage arm in arm with Morgan Freeman, who quickly attracted attention for a detail of her look that disturbed users of social networks. The 85-year-old actor was dressed in a black tuxedo with a white shirt and black bow tie, but what did not go unnoticed was his black glove on his left hand.
A choice that was not related to any incipient trend of wearing only one of the two gloves or wanting to attract attention, but rather that the actor from The Shawshank Redemption wore it for a reason related to his health. “What’s wrong with your hand?”, could be read on Twitter.
The use of the glove is related to the car accident that Morgan had in 2008. The actor was injured after his car overturned several times on a highway in Mississippi, United States. He suffered numerous injuries, the most serious to his left hand, which was left paralyzed.
Doctors operated on her nerve and assured her that her hand would improve, but it has been partially paralyzed ever since. “I can’t move it and if you don’t move it, it swells. Did you know that you move your hand a million times a day?” Freeman said in an interview with the magazine People.
For his public appearances, the actor usually opts for wearing a glove, but it is not just any design, but rather a compression one to maintain blood flow. Last December the accessory already caught all eyes at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar, where he wore a brown leather glove.
The other viral detail
Freeman also went viral on networks for another striking detail during the Oscars. There were many users who showed his surprise with the actor’s new look, who appeared on stage bald. “Morgan Freeman bald?” Launched a user with a circumstantial face. And it is that just a few days ago, the actor revolutionized the networks with some impressive long dreadlocks.
