Denzel Washington Rips Self-Righteous Hollywood Hypocrites

Denzel Washington

It seems like everyday we’re bombarded with another Hollywood celebrity who thinks they have the duty to lecture America on their ultra-liberal political positions.

This week it was Meryl Streep. Before that it was a bunch of actors making a bizarre video about rejecting Donald Trump in the Electoral College.

So it’s refreshing to hear an actor who actually lives in reality. Denzel Washington is one of those guys who recently had something enlightening to say.

Daily Wire reports:

During a roundtable interview for The Hollywood Reporter, actor Denzel Washington was asked about his worst jobs. He replied:

“I was a garbage man…you get eight hours of work, but you can do it in three. So you can go home as soon as you finish. Post office, you get three hours of work, and you make it last eight. I did both. I liked being a garbage man better.”

Then Washington made a salient point about the film and television industry:

“They weren’t bad jobs. Just like people say: ‘Oh, the difficulty of making a movie.’ I’m like, listen, send your son to Iraq–that’s difficult. It’s just a movie. It’s like, relax. I don’t play that precious nonsense. It’s like, oh, a movie. Get outta here. Your son got shot in the face? That’s difficult. Making a movie is a luxury; it’s a gift. It’s an opportunity, and most importantly, it’s a gift. Obviously, everybody here is talented enough to do that, but don’t get it twisted. It’s just a movie. It ain’t that big a deal.”

That’s a refreshing point of view.

Here’s the video of the interview:
