Morgan Freeman says he can never tell if his movies are going to be hits when he is shooting them and insists the audience are always the judge

Morgan Freeman never knows if a movie is going to be a hit.

The Oscar winner has starred in numerous critically acclaimed films such as 'The Shawshank Redemption', 'Invictus', 'Seven' and 'Million Dollar Baby' - which earned him a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award - but he insists he can't tell how a movie is going to be received by cinema goers until it comes out and he can never predict what will warrant a sequel.

The 78-year-old actor - who is reprising his role as Vice President Trumbull in the 'Olympus Has Fallen' sequel 'London Has Fallen' alongside Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart - told website HeyYouGuys: "I have no idea shooting a movie that, 'Oh man, this is going to go really big and they're going to make a sequel.' There's no way to know, the proof is always with the audience."

Morgan is excited for people to see 'London Has Fallen' - which sees the UK capital attacked by terrorists - although he admits he isn't doing anything out of the ordinary on screen.

He joked: "Let me see did I do anything in the sequel? Not that I've never done before. It's not a musical, I have done musicals on the stage."

'London Has Fallen' will be released on March 4.
