Denzel Washington Is An Investigative Journalist
Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington says that he would like to play a character who has to bear physical and mental suffering due to his partner.
The Hollywood star has revealed that he is intrigue by sadomasochism, but would rather play a character who likes it than be exposed to violent sexual acts himself.
"Oh, I've been very bad. Do you think you should punish me? I don't know anything about sadomasochism, but there must be that aspect about it -- powerful people wanting to be humiliated. Maybe I get it out of playing someone who is humiliated, being reminded of what that is," said the actor.
Meanwhile, the 54-year-old, who starred alongside John Travolta in the upcoming thriller "The Taking of Pelham 123", says he doesnot think of himself as an actor despite working on dozens of Hollywood blockbusters.
"I firmly believe I'm an investigative journalist, that's what I do. I investigate characters. I don't write it, just talk it. My journalism work, and even my history work, prepared me to dig deep, to look, to find, to contextualise," said Denzel Washington.
