Morgan Freeman believes in Barack Obama.
So much so that he just donated a whopping $1 million to his re-election campaign because the actor believes the president did "a remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances."
In a statement explaining his charitable gift to the Democratic super PAC, Priorities USA Action, the Dark Knight Rises star said:
"He ended combat operations in Iraq, put in place sensible reforms of Wall Street, saved the auto industry and protected the health care of every American. He has led our nation to be more tolerant and placed impressive, accomplished women on the Supreme Court. In return, he is the target of hundreds of millions of dollars from right-wing sources. I am proud to lend my voice - and support - to those who defend him. Priorities USA Action is doing a great job of protecting the values I believe in. I am happy to help them and I hope others will join me."
Freeman is not the first to donate such a large sum since Bill Maher gave the same figure, while DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has handed over $2 million, but we're sure Democrats are hoping that he won't be the last either.
