Denzel Washington isn't prepared for his upcoming 35th wedding anniversary to his wife Pauletta Washington.

The 62-year-old actor is celebrating the milestone with his wife Pauletta - with whom he has John, 33, Katia, 29, and twins Olivia and Malcolm, 26 - in June next year, and although the date is some way off yet, he's already starting to panic about the big day, as he doesn't know what sort of gift he's going to give her.

When asked about his upcoming anniversary, Denzel simply told People magazine: "Don't put no pressure on me now, don't put no pressure on me! Go on, interview is over! Gotta go!"

The 'Fences' actor does have time to plan something special for his wife, and now that his brood have all grown up, he won't have to worry about getting them out of the house, and could even call upon them for advice when it comes to the gift.

Last year, the 'Man on Fire' star revealed his secret to lasting love was to find someone who could teach him all the things he doesn't already know.

He said: "I didn't know everything there was to know about love, but I married a woman who did and how to share that."

Meanwhile, Denzel previously gushed about the "beauty" of having twins with Pauletta, as he dubbed his two youngest children as "miracles".

When giving advice to George and Amal Clooney - who welcomed twins Ella and Alexander earlier this year - on becoming parents to twins, he said: "Sleep now! Because you won't be sleeping then! Sleep now! I'm not talking to George, I'm talking to his wife. Sleep now!

"He's gonna need support, and not from an actor. It's going to be a real performance. He'll see, but it's beautiful. We have twins and they're grown now, but it's a miracle."
