SEE IT: Morgan Freeman's dramatic reading of Bieber tune

Posted on Mar 3 2016 - 4:02pm by

Morgan Freeman has lent his legendary vocal cords to many a project — he’s taken on the thunderous voice of God, he’s guided us through the deep dark universe, and most recently, he’s redefined the once mundane trip to the grocery store as a gripping quest for milk and bread.

Now, he’s taking on The Beebs.

The smoothest voice in show business has given a heart-wrenching, dramatic rendering of Justin Bieber’s tune “Love Yourself” for Vanity Fair – and it’s pretty incredible.

Morgan Freeman dramatically reads Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.” 

“And I never like to admit that I was wrong. And I’ve been so caught up in my job, didn’t see what’s going on. And now, I know, I’m better sleeping on my own,” Freeman says as he looks into the camera — and into our souls.

The Oscar-winning actor’s gripping monologue manages to make Bieber’s cheesy melody sound like an excerpt from a piece of classic literature, causing the listener to revisit their deepest point of heartbreak.

“And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’ — you should go and love yourself,” he says with brooding eyes.

Maybe Bieber could see if Freeman is available for voice coaching lessons after the release of his new movie “London Has Fallen” this weekend.
