Den­zel: Stop call­ing me – I’m not dead

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

AC­TION movie hero Den­zel Wash­ing­ton has told film fans: “I’m NOT dead!”

The star of new flick The Equal­izer was re­spond­ing to cruel in­ter­net ru­mours that he’d per­ished in a re­cent ski­ing ac­ci­dent.

But the 59-year-old laughed: “The cra­zi­est ru­mour I’ve heard about my­self lately is that I’m dead.

“There was a story go­ing around that I’d died in a ski­ing ac­ci­dent.

“Peo­ple were call­ing my tele­phone and when I an­swered they’d be sur­prised… ’D-D-Den­zel? Is that you?!’ “I don’t even ski!” Mean­while the Train­ing Day ac­tor has taken a swipe at other thesps who bitch and moan about be­ing fa­mous.

He rapped: “An old West In­dian woman once told me, ‘When you pray for the rain and the rain comes, you’ve got to deal with the mud, too. But even­tu­ally good things do grow out of that mud’.

“This is my life – and it ain’t that bad.”
