Where Every Woman Has A Voice


Fine Man Friday-Denzel Washington

Posted September 21, 2012 by Casey The Lady in Featured

Wine might be the only thing that ages better than Denzel Washington. Gracing one of the 3 iconic GQ covers this month, the actor, 57, has a full spread where he dishes about all types of interesting things from family life to politics.

On staying out of the public eye: “Sidney Poitier told me this years ago: ‘If they see you for free all week, they won’t pay to see you on the weekend, because they feel like they’ve seen you. If you walk by the magazine section in the supermarket and they’ve known you all their life, there’s no mystery. They can’t take the ride.’ My professional work is being a better actor. I don’t know how to be a celebrity.”

On Whitney Houston: “Whitney was my girl, and she had done so well in recovery. And that is the toughest part about addiction. …That was a monster drug that got a hold of her, it was a mean one. You can’t go back to that one. Nobody beats that. I look at people — and I don’t think I’m speaking out of line — Sam Jackson, I’ve known for thirty-some-odd years, he was down at the bottom. And he came all the way back. And when he cleaned up, he never looked back. But he can’t have that beer, because it might lead to the tough thing.”

On the code he lives by: “I read from the Bible every day, and I read my Daily Word. I read something great yesterday. It said, ‘Don’t aspire to make a living. Aspire to make a difference.’”

If you are looking to sneak a peak, he can be found on set in New Orleans of his 42nd movie 2 Guns with Mark Wahlberg.
