Among the rest, the 2023 Oscars will definitely be remembered by the big winner Everything Everywhere All at Once, which received seven awards on a landmark night.

The list of attendees consisted of a number of legendary actors, including Morgan Freeman and Margot Robbie who walked the stage together to commemorate Warner Bros.’ 100th anniversary.

As always, Robbie looked stunning, and Freeman was certainly dressed for the occasion, wearing a dapper black tuxedo and rocking a fresh new bald hairstyle. However, what many people noticed was the black glove on his left hand. And as those unaware of the real reason for it believed it was just a stylistic preference, Freeman’s fans knew the actor was wearing the glove because of the bad accident he was involved in years ago.

Namely, back in 2008, Freeman injured his arm while driving home late one night when his car veered off the road and flipped several times before coming to an eventual stop in a ditch.

Paramedics arrived quickly and he was conscious but needed to be transferred to a Memphis hospital located over 100 miles away from the scene of the crash.

Freeman ended up with a couple of broken ribs and was forced to undergo a four-hour long surgery for his hand.

Though he mostly recovered, the Shawshank Redemption star was left with a lasting physical nerve damage in his left hand known as fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, his arm was left paralyzed.

Back in 2010, two years after the accident, Freeman spoke to People magazine and shared how he never fully recovered from the injury. “If you don’t move your hand, it will swell up,” he explained. “Do you know you move your hand about a million times a day?”

Ever since the accident, he needs to wear a compression glove to keep the symptoms in check. Back in 2022, the actor was also spotted wearing a similar compression glove during the opening ceremony FIFA Qatar World Cup.
