Morgan Freeman insists retirement is a "foreign word" to him.
The 75-year-old actor has enjoyed a lengthy career in Hollywood and won a host of awards. Although some men his age may be thinking about reducing their workload, Morgan has no interest in winding down.
"Retirement? That's a foreign word for me. I am always desperately searching for new roles same way as I did as 25-year-old whippersnapper," he told German TV station Tele 5. "Whoever quits is already done - that's the way I see it. I need a reason to get up in the morning."
Morgan likes to keep in shape so he can cope with the demands of his career.
The star also swears by a specific eating regime, which sees him eat one main meal and then stave off any hunger pangs with healthy snacks.
"I only eat once a day that has to be enough," he explained. "In the evenings there are some grapes and nuts at the most."
