It’s Friday, and we just exited the last fully freezing month of the year. You likely already have a smile on your face, so allow this to widen it.

Morgan Freeman has solidified his reputation as one of the most prolific and stoic narration voices in the entertainment industry, especially after his role in Bruce Almighty, where he played the role of God so well we’re positive a portrait of Freeman replaced the blue-eyed, blonde-haired head shots hanging in the corridors of many a household.


To remind everyone of his godly vocal abilities, Morgan Freeman decided to do a dramatic reading of some Justin Bieber lyrics with Vanity Fair, and the results are as hilarious as you’d expect. The 78-year-old actor flashes that disarming ear-to-ear grin and begins his cinematic dictation of the Ed Sheeran-penned lyrics, running through the first verse and the chorus seamlessly.

In case you’re wondering, the actual “Love Yourself” appears on Justin Bieber’s most recent album, Purpose, which was released this past November.
