Sometimes it’s the recognition from the ones closest to you, that means the most!
In an interview last month, Denzel Washington’s son, actor John David Washington responded to The New York Times naming his father the best actor of the 21st century.
“I think he is one of the greatest to ever do it so it was a very proud moment for our entire family,” said David.
Once the clip was shared with Denzel Washington, he was overtaken with joy.
“Wow. I’m speechless,” said the 66-year-old actor during his appearance on Access Hollywood. “I forgot what the question was but I’m speechless. I didn’t know he said that.
Denzel also used the moment to let the world know that the talent in the family runs deep!
“Watch out for his sister,” he continued. “His sister is a great actor. Olivia Washington.”
Olivia is the producer of John David Washington’s latest project, “Malcolm & Marie” which also stars Zendaya.
