Actors will say the darndest things when promoting a movie. Case in point, Oscar-winning legend Denzel Washington said he was a vegetarian, but not really considering he indulges in chicken from time to time.
The star told WENN, ”I’m a vegetarian now.” Although, he’s a new vegetarian so he’s not perfect yet. He continued, “But sometimes I’ll cheat and have chicken.”
Chicken was probably the last piece of meat I gave up before becoming a vegetarian, so I feel him, but I sure didn’t alert anyone to my veg status until I was over that yard bird.
He said about his lifestyle change, “When I did the play Fences (on Broadway) it just kind of woke me up to this idea of getting back to the basics in every way, and I made a commitment to just work harder and eat good.”
But whatever works for the star whose movie, 2 Guns, opens up Friday nationwide.
“From personal experience I can tell you that the actor has always had to watch what he eats. He told me back in 2004, “I just look at a Krispy Kreme and I gain weight.” Doesn’t everyone?
