Denzel Washington wife go for romantic vacation in Italy
They got married 29 years ago, but they are still going strong together. Denzel Washington and his wife Pauletta Pearson are happier than ever.
Unlike Britney Spears who once staid married for a less than a week, Denzel has managed to keep his marriage alive and happy for almost three decades.
The 57-year-old actor and his 62-year-old actress were spotted as they holiday in Portofino, Italy. The two were seen enjoying a stroll on Tuesday, October 2. They were seen laughing and joking as they chatted to locals in the Luguria fishing village. After the stroll, they took an alfresco dinner at a restaurant.
Denzel was seen wearing a zip-up cardigan with a pair of jeans. Pauletta wore an yellow sweater and a floral skirt. She accessorized the outfit with high platform sandals. After dinner, the Oscar winner signed autographs and posed for photos with fans.
Talking about his marriage, Denzel once said: “It’s a marathon, not a sprint”. Very wise indeed.
Denzel married Pauletta 29 years ago. But they began dating in 1977. 35 years that is! They met in 1977 while the actor was filming his first TV role in ‘Wilma’, which she was also starring in. They got married in 1983. In 1995, they renewed their wedding vows in South Africa.
The couple has four children: 28-year-old son John, 24-year-old daughter Katia, and 21-year-old twins Olivia and Malcolm.
The actor won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for ‘Glory’ in 1989. He also won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2001 for his role in the film ‘Training Day’. He also won a Golden Globe award for ‘Glory’ and for ‘The Hurricane’.
Denzel is such a serious role model. He’s a very good actor and a wonderful husband and father. Young people should learn from him.
