Denzel Washington is a highly successful actor who isn’t afraid to tell Hollywood elitists the bold truth or expose hypocrisies in the liberal narrative.
As pointed out by Informed Folks, Hollywood actors seem to assume their jobs are the most important, noteworthy and difficult.
During a Dec. 2016 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Washington reminded celebrities about some realdifficulties in life.
“People talk about the difficulty of making a movie and I’m like, ‘send your son to Iraq, that’s difficult,’” Washington said.
“It’s just a movie. It’s like — relax. I don’t play that precious nonsense. Your son got shot in the face. That’s difficult,” Washington continued. “Making a movie is a luxury. It’s a gift. It’s an opportunity, and most importantly it’s a gift.”
“Don’t get it twisted. It’s just a movie — it ain’t that big a deal,” he concluded.
Have a child go to war is arguably one of the toughest experiences a parent could ever go through, and Washington deserves praise for reminding celebrities they aren’t somehow America’s heroes just for being famous.
Washington’s bold answer came in response to being asked about the first job he ever had and the worst job he ever had.
The acclaimed actor said he worked as a garbageman and a postman before he was able to find success in the movie industry as an actor.

Washington is known for his hard hitting honesty.
During a press event in June for his film “Fences,” Washington was berated by a reporter who demanded Washington reveal who he supported in the 2016 presidential election.
“None of your business!” Washington said, visibly annoyed with the reporter’s aggressiveness.
The reporter then asked Washington if he believed race relations have improved in America under former President Barack Obama’s administration.
“Race relationships have to do with race relationships,” Washington said. “You’re white, or whatever you are, and I’m black, or whatever I am — we’re standing here talking now. That’s how we get things done.”
Washington delivered a brutal one-liner to the reporter: “You can’t legislate love.”
In contrast to many in Hollywood, Washington doesn’t try to pretend that he has the most difficult job in the world. Getting paid millions to act is, as Washington pointed out, a gift.
Risking your life to defend your country is a different category altogether.
Thankfully actors like Washington aren’t afraid to set these Hollywood liberals straight and remind them of the amazing opportunities they’re afforded thanks to their talent, but also because of the brave men and women who help keep our nation free.
