Washington Let Himself Go For Inside Man
DENZEL WASHINGTON had to play down his good looks for his latest part in the movie INSIDE MAN, because he had to be a convincing "regular guy". The Oscar-winner had to shave his head and pack on some extra weight to play a cop who negotiates with a master criminal played by CLIVE OWEN. He explains, "He's a regular guy. He's in over his head. He's been accused of stealing $140,000, his girlfriend wants to get married yesterday... "This is the biggest case he's ever had, so he's got a few issues." The TRAINING DAY star insists his wife of 22-years, PAULETTA, had no problems with her husband letting himself go for the role. He adds, "(She's fine) as long as I buy her something."
