Morgan lends his presence to opening night of Frances' movie

3 MARCH 2008
Morgan Freeman gave a friend a boost when he stepped out to a New York film premiere recently. The Hollywood heavyweight, who has a reputation as one of the hardest working actors in the business, spent his night off helping promote his pal Frances McDormand's latest movie Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day.

The two Oscar winners will have been spending plenty of time together as they're in rehearsals for a Broadway play due to open in April.

In the Noel Coward-style movie, Fargo star Frances portrays a straitlaced governess who finds herself unexpectedly helping Amy Adams' dizzy character out of a scrape.

At Sunday's event Frances was in an upbeat mood as she laughed and joked with her co-stars. The celebrated character actress has been riding high since the Oscars, when her husband Joel Coen scoop three gongs for his thriller No Country For Old Men.
