Denzel Washington: “I think that I had to be naked in a sense, and you couldn’t pretty it up. He was a slob, he was.”

One of the great American actors, two-time Oscar winning Denzel Washington, 57, stars in Flight, about an investigation of a pilot’s emergency landing which saves everyone on board, but leads to the discovery that he had alcohol in his system during the flight.

Off-screen, Washington has been married to Pauletta Washington (nee Pearson) since 1983 (and renewed their vows in 1995) and the couple raised four children. A devout Christian, he had considered becoming a preacher before he fell into acting.

In person, Washington is not always an easy interview, and evidently this afternoon is no exception.
