Denzel Washington Struggles with his weight

Jul 30 2013, 11:30am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Denzel Washington admits he struggles to control his weight - because he loves eating ice cream so much.

The 58-year-old actor has a sweet tooth and has a weakness he struggles to control for calorie-laden Häagen-Dazs ice cream.

During an appearance on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' last night (07.29.13), he said: "Actually at one point I got to 247 lbs. I was directing a movie and I was editing the film so I was very nervous about it and I'm in the dark in the editing room for five or six months and I'm just eating."

Denzel's next movie is action comedy flick '2 GUNS' - in which he stars opposite Mark Wahlberg.

The Oscar winner had to get in shape for the stunt-filled film and he insists there's no quick fix to get fit.

When asked how he lost the weight by Letterman, he replied: "There's no easy way, you just work out but I'm not going back there."

Denzel used to regularly go to a boxing club to keep fit but after he started suffering headaches while preparing for his role as a pugilist in 'The Hurricane' he quit the sport.

He recalled: "I remember I was with Michael Spinks, the ex-light-heavyweight champ. I was preparing for the film 'The Hurricane' and we were actually sparring, not me and Spinks but me and another guy ... and I started getting a little slower and headaches and I said to Michael, 'I'm starting to get headaches,' and he said, 'Oh you'll get used to that.' And that's when I stopped. I don't want to get used to that."

Not Quite Bond, Pierce Brosnan Is Back In Action In 'The November Man'

Aug 29 2014 11:45am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Sean Connery was 53 when he downed his last vodka martini as James Bond (though he'd previously walked away from the role and been lured back twice). Roger Moore was 57 at the time of his last mission on Her Majesty's Secret Service (though he didn't look a day over ninety). Pierce Brosnan was a spry 49 in his final Bonding session, and his departure was bittersweet: He'd started later than he'd wanted, almost a decade afte ...

Denzel Washington partied too hard during his vacation, so he went to rehab

Aug 17 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’ve always thought Denzel Washington had everything in his life in order, you know? You never hear about him on the gossip level (except for all of the people who say he’s unpleasant in real life). He’s happily married, his kids are grown and they’ve all gone to college and seem to keep on the straight and narrow. Denzel works consistently in film and theater and no one is every like, “This dude is a mess.” But every year, Denzel and his wife rent a ...
