Casey Affleck was left red-faced after a confrontation with Morgan Freeman on the set of their latest film Gone Baby Gone - because he turned up late for work.

Affleck claims a time miscalculation brought Freeman to the set earlier than required - and he then had to wait for the younger star.

He told chat-show host Larry King: "Morgan was fantastic. He is Morgan Freeman. The first day he came to work, everyone was a little on edge.

"And I guess they brought him in a bit early. They thought he might need a haircut. But Morgan didn't.

"So he sat in his trailer for half an hour, waiting for everyone else to show up. Morgan had been told I was late. No one wanted to admit they had brought him in early.

"I went to his trailer, and knocked on the door . And I thought, I'm going to introduce myself to Morgan Freeman.

"And he gave me a lecture for 15 minutes about being late and being professional.

"And I had to live with that." - Wenn
