Washington Detests Hollywood Lifestyle

Hunky actor DENZEL WASHINGTON refuses to go to movie premieres because he detests the "superficial" Hollywood lifestyle.

The TRAINING DAY star proudly regards himself as a New York actor, and only went to the ERIN BROCKOVICH premiere because his actress friend JULIA ROBERTS begged him to support her there.

He explains, "I didn't look to superficial Hollywood. We were New York actors and looked down our noses at it. What's Hollywood? People walking round looking at footprints.

"Am I looking down at myself? I don't go to premieres. the last time I went was to Erin Brokovich, because Julia is a friend. She asked me and my wife PAULETTA to come and I said, 'I'll be there, she's my girl.'"
