Drunk Denzel makes wife uneasy

Comment on this story
IOL DenzelPilot AP Denzel Washington in a scene from Flight.

Denzel Washington's wife wasn't impressed by his latest role.

The actor plays an alcoholic pilot in 'Flight' and he admitted his spouse Pauletta was a "little disturbed" by his character.

Denzel said: "After a scene where I'm drunk and arguing the whole day, the last thing I want to do is any of those things so it was therapeutic. But my wife was a little disturbed by this one to be honest."

Denzel's character fights with his son in the movie but in real life the 57-year-old actor admitted his sons are more physically powerful than him these days.

He added to People magazine: "In basketball I used to be able to beat them, then it got to the point where they could beat me. My oldest is a football player, so he's strong."

The Academy Award winner is currently filming upcoming crime-drama movie '2 Guns' alongside Mark Wahlberg and Paula Patton. The motion picture tells the story of DEA agent and a Naval Intelligence Officer investigating each other because they believe each other is stealing money from the mob.
