Denzel Washington nearly tears up after hearing praise from son John David: ‘I’m speechless’

Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington got misty-eyed while discussing his eldest son John David in a rare show of public emotion on Sunday.

It came after the New York Times ranked the legendary 66-year-old ‘the greatest actor of the 21st century’ in November.

‘It’s about time,’ the 36-year-old Tenet action star told Access Hollywood last month.

‘I think he is one of the greatest to ever do it so it was a very proud moment for our entire family.’

Upon hearing John David’s praise, Denzel told the same outlet: ‘Wow. I’m speechless. I forgot what the question was but I’m speechless. You know, I didn’t know he said that.’

The former NFL running back is clearly following in Washington’s footsteps having scored a Golden Globe nomination in 2019 for his role in Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman.

The Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom producer added: ‘Watch out for his sister. His sister is a great actor. Olivia Washington.’

Denzel’s 29-year-old daughter just so happened to score the role of Amy Anders in his next film, The Little Things.

Washington is also father to 33-year-old daughter Katia and 29-year-old son Malcolm from his 37-year marriage to Pauletta Pearson.

The acting couple originally met on the 1977 set of NBC movie Wilma, and they renewed their vows in a 1995 ceremony officiated by anti-apartheid activist Desmond Tutu in South Africa.
