Denzel Washington fails to impress his kidsFebruary 16th, 2012 - 3:35 pm ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, Feb 16 (IANS) He is an Oscar winning actor, but Denzel Washington’s children aren’t impressed by his body of work and have other people they look up to.
Denzel has four kids with wife Pauletta Pearson.
Femalefirst.co.uk reports that when he was described as a “legendary” actor, Denzel replied: “Am I? I’m legendary? So when I walk past mirrors I should stop and just look at myself and say, ‘You’re a legend?’
“You don’t hear about it until you do interviews and things. I’m not legendary in my house - I still put the trash out.
“One day my youngest son, I was talking to him and I said ‘I know there must be tremendous pressure on you - me being your father.’
“And he said, ‘No, the pressure is from my brothers and sisters.’ Because his eldest brother is a professional football player, and then his eldest sister graduated from Yale, and so it was more sibling pressure. So I was like, ‘So I don’t mean anything?!’ ”
The star insists the family leads a very normal life.
“They’re used to me, they’re used to their dad being an actor, that’s what I do. And we don’t lead a movie star kind of life - we don’t have a lot of handlers around the house and all that kind of stuff. A lot of mirrors though,” he told British TV show “Daybreak”.
