Morgan Freeman is backing Hillary Clinton for president, the actor told CNN's Don Lemon on Friday

The Oscar winner also narrated a new Clinton spot, called "All the good," which details Clinton's early career after finishing law school

(CNN) —  

Morgan Freeman is backing Hillary Clinton for president, the actor told CNN’s Don Lemon.

The Oscar winner also told Lemon that he doesn’t have any trust issues with Clinton.

“Not with me, she doesn’t,” Freeman said in an interview that aired Friday on “CNN Tonight.” “I can’t say that she doesn’t, because all you need in some cases for people is to say it. Just put it out there and it gets legs. The Clintons have been being beat down ever since way back, so she just was going along with that legacy that she’s inherited over the amount of time she’s been in politics, which is a long time.”

Freeman added, “I think this is just made-up stuff, just, you know, it’s political hogwash.”

Freeman on Friday also narrated a new Clinton spot, called “All the good,” which details Clinton’s early career after finishing law school.

Freeman’s unmistakable tone can be heard touting Clinton’s work on juvenile justice reform in South Carolina, combating racism in Alabama schools and registering Latino voters in Texas – part of a targeted pitch to minority voters before the Nevada caucuses and South Carolina primary.

The famous performer’s voice has been featured in movies, TV and commercials for decades – as the voice of God in “Bruce Almighty,” in Batman’s ear in “The Dark Knight,” in Super Bowl ads for Visa and was one of the narrators for the acclaimed “Civil War” documentary series by Ken Burns – among many others.

Freeman was also spotted getting dinner with President Barack Obama and actor Tom Hanks in Washington on Wednesday.
