“Leonardo DiCaprio told me one day, he says ‘You know what pal you know who I am scared of? Denzel, buddy. Because he looks like he really knows this sh*t, he looks like he’ll fu**king tear your trechea out or some sh*t.'”

This earned a laugh as even Washington couldn’t counter this claim. Well, DiCaprio isn’t entirely wrong for even though Denzel Washington is an amazing actor and an even amazing human being off-screen, watching his dark and intense characters could make anyone run for their lives whether they have done something bad or not.

“You was at Roxbury one day, back in the day… you don’t remember this. But I literally ran across the street and tried to hug you. But you did some kind of move (illustrating the elbow strike block technique)… I’m like ‘Man, I’m just trying to give you your props, D.'”

To which Washington just laughed and tried to defend himself while at the same time exclaiming that he tends to do this when people approach him. This just proves that the American Gangstar actor is a force to be reckoned with.
