Denzel Washington's "biggest lifetime achievement" is his wife.
The 'Training Day' star - who has children John David, 34, Katia, 32, and 28-year-old twins Olivia and Malcolm with spouse Pauletta - was honoured at the AFI Life Achievement Award gala on Thursday, June 7, but admitted he regards his best accomplishments as one achieved away from his career.
Asked ahead of the event, which took place at Hollywood's Dolby Theater, what he considered his biggest lifetime achievement, he turned to his wife and smiled as she said: "His four children".
He replied: "[Actually] I was pointing to her. That's my biggest lifetime achievement."
The 64-year-old actor admitted he felt "humbled" to have been chosen by the American Film Institute for the honour but felt very "relaxed" to be attending an event in his honour as there was no pressure on him.
