Denzel Washington: 'I Don't Want Movie Star Friends'

Denzel Washington hits the stage at the premiere of his film Flight on Thursday (February 21) at Marunouchi Piccadilly in Tokyo, Japan.

The 58-year-old Oscar-nominated actor revealed in a recent interview that he has no interest in being friends with movie stars.

“Even within the industry, I don’t have any actor friends. My friends are old friends,” Denzel told The Guardian. “One’s an ex-music guy, the other’s a restaurant owner and the other’s an ex-pro ballplayer.”

“Because I don’t make friends! Maybe I’m not a butt kisser. Maybe I’m not a schmoozer. I’m not about to go to a party to try to get a job,” Denzel added on why he doesn’t have many Hollywood pals. “And then when you have children, the other friends become other parents. We’d coach baseball or basketball. My wife and I were raised right.”
