The Office actor also revealed the obsession he has with mod fashion, dating back to his childhood.
When asked by Shortlist magazine whether he cares about his appearance, he admitted: "Yeah, I am [image-conscious], I suppose, but I'm not too cool to go skydiving; I just don't fancy it. It would ruin my hair, though. But, yeah, I like clothes."
Freeman added: "I've been into what I've been into since I was about nine years old [the mod style]. And I've always loved clothes. Even before I had money, I went charity shopping. So I've always had an eye for clothes.
"People see me walking around town and I look a certain way. I don't expect other people to be into it. If everyone became a mod, I would probably become a rocker. Because that's the mod thing to do. It's about being an individual. It shouldn't be about a uniform."
Freeman recently finished an 18-month stint filming new movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which premiered in the UK today (December 13) and opens in the US tomorrow (December 14).
