Denzel Washington admits he doesn't like taking breaks in his career and loves taking on new movie roles to stay busy
Denzel Washington enjoys keeping busy with movies.
The '2 Guns' actor admits he doesn't like taking breaks in his movie career and likes occupying himself with continuous acting work.
He said: "I didn't make any [movies] last year. It's not good for me [to take a break]. I need to stay busy. A man needs to get up in the morning, go to work, have something to do."
The actor stars opposite Mark Wahlberg in the new action comedy and he reveals that they got on incredibly well right off the bat.
He added: "He's got a heart of gold. He's a sweetheart; he's a really good dude."
The movie required Washington to do some stunt work, and he admits there were some "stupid" moments on set, particularly when he came face-to-face with an unfriendly bull.
He explained: "We did some stupid stuff, like hung upside down being gored by bulls. This was beyond that 'too much' part, it was not comfortable. They definitely didn't schedule a stunt bull - we had the real bull there. He was not nice. He didn't know he was in a movie."
