He is a typical dad.

Washington ran errands and took his four kids to all sorts of sports and school events. He said that family was life and entertainment was fantasy. Being famous is not his focus, taking care of the people in life are.

He battles with wanting to be a preacher sometimes.

Washington always had the nagging thought that he compromised by choosing to do entertainment. “A part of me still says, ‘Maybe, Denzel, you’re supposed to preach. Maybe you’re still compromising,’” he said during an 1999 interview.

Denzel Washington has always been good on the eyes, and we look forward in watching him for years to come. We will leave you with some sage advice from Washington. “You pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too. That's a part of it.” Maybe this is why he has succeed so much. What makes him fascinating is his faith as well. He credited prayer guiding him in selecting projects and in every day decisions. Reading the Bible has continued to be an important aspect for him in life as well. “I don't know how many years ago, just reading the Bible from cover to cover. And started with the New Testament and went back to the Old Testament, and went back to the New Testament. In fact, today I just finished the Book of Acts, where Paul is back in Rome and living in Rome and preaching, teaching. So that's how I start my day every morning,” he said in an interview with Beliefnet.
