When Morgan's not on a film set, he flies airplanes, is an avid racing fan and hits the open water in his 43-foot sailboat. When he sets sail in the Caribbean, Morgan drops anchor at the lovely island of Grenada.
Two years ago, Morgan's favorite tropical paradise was demolished by Hurricane Ivan. The fierce winds left 39 people dead and more than 18,000 people homeless. Nearly everything in Ivan's path was destroyed, causing nearly $900 million in damages.
Morgan couldn't let his beloved island suffer, so he took action. He formed the Grenada Relief Fund and called on some famous friends for help. Celebrities such as Tom Hanks, Alicia Keys and Ben Affleck submitted their favorite Caribbean recipes for a cookbook called Morgan Freeman and Friends: Caribbean Cooking for a Cause. Proceeds from the book will benefit Grenada's rebuilding efforts.
