Rumours of the Dark Knight Rises actor's demise gained traction on Thursday (September 6) when an 'R.I.P. Morgan Freeman' Facebook page attracted thousands of 'likes'.
Freeman's spokesperson was quick to respond to the death hoax, telling Gossip Cop that the Golden Globe winner is alive and well.
Bill Cosby was the subject of a similar death scam last month, while Russell Brand recently joked about his death hoax on Twitter.
Other celebrities who have been falsely reported as dead in the last few months include Kris Jenner, Eddie Murphy and Madonna.
Freeman next appears on the big screen in the thriller Now You See, opening on March 15 in the US and March 27 in the UK.
