Denzel Washingtons directorial inhibitionsDecember 30th, 2007 - 4:34 pm ICT by admin
Melbourne, Dec 30 (ANI): Denzel Washington has revealed that he had many inhibitions about wearing the directors cap for the first time.
In a recent interview, the 54-year-old recalled the fear he felt before shooting his directorial debut, Antwone Fisher, in which he played the role of a psychiatrist.
I was so petrified that I had to go to a chiropractor like a week before. I was lockin’ up asking myself: What have I gotten myself into and I don’t know what I’m doing, Moviehole quoted him, as saying.
However, the actor said admitted the experience of directing a movie was invigorating and exciting.
But it’s invigorating and exciting. I think maybe sometimes actors and entertainers develop bad habits because they’ve had so much success and they need to find a way to tear themselves down or to be normal or something, well, I found it through directing, he said.
Antwone Fisher, released in 2002, was very well received and even got Washington the Best Director Award at the Black Reel Awards. (ANI)
