John David Washington Says He Had to Do Chores Again After Moving Back in With Dad Denzel!

John David Washington is opening up about moving back home during the quarantine!

The 36-year-old Tenet star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with guest host Samuel L. Jackson where he talked about living with his dad Denzel Washington once again.

“You really live in Brooklyn, but since the pandemic has happened you had to come back home. So you’re living in the house again, right?” Samuel started.

“Technically not anymore, but I was,” John responded. “I was in my old room.”

Samuel, who has been close friends with the Washington family for years, then asked John if Denzel made him do chores again, as Denzel likes “some order in the house.”

“I can’t believe we’re doing this right now,” John laughed. “There was a chore or two. My chore was to make sure I’m down for dinner in time.”

“That’s not a chore,” Samuel responded. “A chore is like sweeping the driveway, taking the garbage out, something to earn your keep.”

“How about cooking?” John added. “There you go, I earned my keep that way.”

Denzel Washington Paid for Chadwick Boseman to Study Acting at Oxford - Read His Tribute to the Late Actor

When Chadwick Boseman was a student at Howard University, one of his teachers was legendary actress Phylicia Rashad and she encouraged him to apply for a summer program at Oxford University’s drama department in London.

Chadwick was accepted, but he couldn’t afford the tuition so Phylicia found famous friends to pay for him and other students to attend the school. He later learned that Denzel Washington was the person who paid for his schooling!

It wasn’t until the premiere of Black Panther that Chadwick was able to finally thank Denzel for that gift. He told THR that he told Denzel the story on the red carpet and the actor replied, “Oh, so you owe me money! That’s why I’m here — I’m here to collect!”

After hearing about the tragic news of Chadwick‘s death at the age of 43, Denzel released a statement to pay tribute to the late actor.

“He was a gentle soul and a brilliant artist, who will stay with us for eternity through his iconic performances over his short yet illustrious career,” Denzel said in his statement. “God bless Chadwick Boseman.”

Read what Chadwick‘s co-stars from the Marvel movies are saying about his tragic death.

Julia Roberts & Denzel Washington to Reunite On Screen in Upcoming Netflix Movie!

Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington will be starring in the upcoming movie Leave the World Behind, which has been set up at Netflix.

The two actors worked together almost three decades ago in the movie The Pelican Brief and this is a long-awaited reunion!

Leave the World Behind is based on the novel by Rumaan Alam and the film will be written and directed by Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. The novel will be published this fall by HarperCollins.

Here is the film’s synopsis, via Deadline: “Amanda and Clay’s aspirational vacation with their teenage children is interrupted by the arrival of a middle aged couple who own the holiday home and who have fled an unprecedented blackout in the city. When the internet, television and radio stop working, as does the landline, they have no way of finding out what is happening. As strange sonic booms shatter the peace of the countryside, and animals start to migrate in strange ways, the physical and mental health of the families begins to disintegrate. The renters are upscale and White; the owners are upscale and Black. The issues of race and clash become distractions to the more alarming things are happening all around them.”

Julia will be playing Amanda while Denzel will be playing the owner of the home.

See the super rare photo that Julia shared with her husband Danny Moder to celebrate their 18th wedding anniversary.

Katie Couric Says She Was 'Shaken' & 'Uncomfortable' After This Denzel Washington Interview

Katie Couric is speaking out about the “uncomfortable” interview she had with Denzel Washington back in 2004.

A little backstory: Katie interviewed Denzel on Dateline back in 2004 to promote his film The Manchurian Candidate. During the interview, Katie asked if “Hollywood folks should stick to acting.”

Denzel then responded, “I don’t know what Hollywood folks are, first of all. Hollywood is a town that has some stars on the sidewalk. I don’t know anybody from there. So, I don’t – that’s like saying – calling you a ‘type’ of folks. I’m not a Hollywood folk. I don’t know who they are.”

“Are you one of those people that–” Katie said, attempting to rephrase the question.

Denzel then interrupted, “Ah, there you go. Am I one of those people? Hmmm, isn’t that interesting?” “Oh, stop, stop, stop,” Katie said.

“No, don’t stop. I heard what you just said. ‘Am I one of those people?’ No, I’m not,” Denzel said.

“No, are you an actor who would rather not —” Katie responded back. He then said, “No, I’m not that either. I’m a human being. My job is acting.”

Well, all these years later, Katie spoke about the interview on her recent “Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino” podcast appearance.

“I think he totally misconstrued a question I asked and kind of jumped all over me. It was so uncomfortable because he was doing it with Meryl Streep…” Katie said. “I don’t think I said anything wrong… I don’t know what happened.”

Katie continued, “I think he must have been having a really bad day because he later wrote a really big check to my colon cancer organization, which I thought was super sweet. I love him, I admire him so much. He’s one of my favorite actors, but I remember walking out and feeling really kind of shaken that he had kind of gone after me in a way that was completely, weirdly uncalled for.”

On that same podcast, Katie opened up about another subject everyone has been anxiously awaiting her opinion on.

Rami Malek & Denzel Washington's Cop Thriller 'Little Things' Gets Release Date

Rami Malek and Denzel Washington‘s upcoming cop thriller The Little Things now has a premiere date!

The 38-year-old Mr. Robot actor and the 65-year-old Fences star team up in the John Lee Hancock-directed film.

The movie’s official release has been set for January 29, 2021, Deadline reports.

The flick, also written by Hancock, focuses on “Deke (Washington), a burnt-out Kern County, CA deputy sheriff who teams with Baxter (Malek), a crack LASD detective, to nab a serial killer. Deke’s nose for the ‘little things’ proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past.”

It also stars Jared Leto and Natalie Morales.
