Denzel Washington Wants To Don A Sadomasochist
Denzel Washington, who is an Oscar-winner, wishes to play a character who is bearing the physical and mental suffering due to his partner.
The Hollywood star said that he is very much inspired by the concept of 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.
"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 Washington.
