Drop dead gorgeous Denzel Washington covers GQ Magazine

I have a confession. I don't have many celebrity crushes but there is just one man that just does if for me. Yes y'all 58 year old Denzel Washington is the very definition of eye candy, swag and complete sex appeal. Ain't that salt and pepper hair just working for him? Ok enough swooning, lets get to some highlights from the GQ cover story.

Denzel on Whitney Houston
Washington still spoke somewhat regularly with Whitney Houston, his co-star in “The Preacher’s Wife,” prior to her death.

We were not “‘talk every month’ friends,” he says, “but I talked to her from time to time. And that was a monster drug that got ahold of her, it was a mean one. You can’t go back to that one.”

He adds: “You know, they made her this thing. She had a voice, obviously, but they packaged her into this whole whatever, but she was really just this humble, sweet girl. Me and Lenny [Kravitz], we were talking about her yesterday, and it's more of an example to me or the rest of us to keep it together.”

When asked how he feels about Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage, Washington avoids taking a stance.

At first he responds with, “What did he say about it?” Then, when told what the president said, he asks, “What does that mean?” Ultimately, Washington opts to stay out of the fray on the subject: “You know, I think people have the right to believe what they want to believe. And people have the right to disagree with it.”

Speaking of politics, Washington defines himself as an independent.

“In some ways I'm liberal, and other ways I'm conservative,” he says. “We get so locked in on ‘you have to be this or that.’ It's ridiculous.”

And back to Washington’s approach to celebrity:
“That's not my job to put stuff out there,” says the movie star who plays his life close to the vest. “Sidney Poitier told me this years ago: ‘If they see you for free all week, they won't pay to see you on the weekend, because they feel like they've seen you. If you walk by the magazine section in the supermarket and they've known you all their life, there’s no mystery. They can't take the ride.’ My professional work is being a better actor. I don't know how to be a celebrity.”

And there you have it! I like how he kinda side stepped the question about same sex marriage. I see you Boo! What do you think of Denzel's cover?
