Denzel Washington never watched cowboy films

Los Angeles, Sep 22 (IANS) “The Magnificent Seven” actor Denzel Washington never watched cowboy movies when he was younger.

The 61-year-old may be one of the stars of the Western remake, but he never saw the original and being brought up by a Pentecostal minister father meant he didn’t really watch many movies apart from religious epics, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I grew up with ‘King of Kings’, ‘The Ten Commandments’. I never went to see any cowboy movies,” Washington told Metro newspaper.

“We didn’t go to movies. I saw ‘Bonanza’, some of those TV shows, but I wanted to be outside, I didn’t want to be in the house. I didn’t want to watch cowboys, I wanted to be one,” he added.
