Denzel Washington rewards 24 students with $1,000

May 7 2014, 5:28am CDT | by

Denzel Washington generously gave $1,000 each to students who were competing for a scholarship.

The 59-year-old star awarded 24 finalists, from select US cities, who were competing in the August Wilson Monologue Competition a cash prize.

According to the New York Post newspaper, the actor said: "Just don't spend it all tonight."

Competition judges included his wife Pauletta Washington and Stephen McKinley Henderson - who he worked with in famed playwright August Wilson's production 'Fences.'

Boston student Ashley Herbert won the contest after beating regional competitors who traveled to the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to participate in a weekend devoted to the late American playwright, who died on October 2, 2005, before competing in the final round of the competition.

Denzel previously revealed he feels fortunate to have gone to college and then later acting school because both provided him with the early foundations for his successful Hollywood career, which has seen him win two Academy Awards.

He revealed: "I wanted to carry on with my education, because I realized how important it was. I went to university and acting college. I was in my mid-20s before I started work as an actor. It was something I enjoyed but it was hard to make a living. That's the thing about acting. To be an actor, all you have to do is say you are one. That is perhaps the saddest thing about it. That is why there a lot of angry, frustrated people walking around Hollywood without any training or any work."

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 after he was first announced a ...

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 w ...
