Denzel Washington Was Honest With His Kids About the Business Of Hollywood, But It Sounds Like It Didn’t Matter

It’s far from uncommon for kids to want to follow in the footsteps of their parents when it comes to their careers and it seems that is the case even when your dad is Denzel Washington.  One of the most successful and well regarded actors ever has four kids who all work in Hollywood, despite their dad making sure they knew just how tough the business would be.

Speaking with Today about his new film, The Tragedy of Macbeth, Denzel Washington says that he did talk to his kids about their potential careers, and even had his daughter Olivia audition for him so he could see what she would be doing. While he never tried to talk her out of her dream, he did try to make sure she understood how tough it could potentially be, even being the child of a famous actor. Washington says… 

I had Olivia audition for me, show me her audition piece. I told her I said, you know,, ‘No. 1 you’re very good, but it’s going to be tough, tougher for you.’ I just tried to be honest with them about the business.
