Morgan FreemanMorgan Freeman is still unable to move his left hand after damaging nerves in a 2008 car crash. The actor broke his arm and shoulder and suffered nerve damage in the accident, which happened near his home in Mississippi in August 2008.

Freeman was wearing a supportive glove during a red carpet appearance in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and the 72 year old admits he's yet to fully recover from the accident.

He tells People.com, "I suffered nerve damage and it hasn't gotten better. I can't move it. If you don't move your hand, it will swell up. Do you know you move your hand about a million times a day?"

In November, Freeman settled a lawsuit filed by Demaris Meyer, the woman he was travelling with when he crashed. She sued him, alleging he was driving under the influence of alcohol.
