During Oscar Roundtables, where Hollywood directors met to discuss their experience in film and directing, Denzel Washington scoffed at the idea that making a movie is a difficult job.
Washington recalls some of the first jobs he had before becoming a movie star – like being a garbage man and working in the post office.
“They weren’t bad jobs,” he said.
He mentioned that union people say making a movie is a difficult job, but there are other things that are much harder to do.
“It’s like the union people saying: ‘Oh the difficulty of making a movie’. I’m like, well send your son to Iraq. That’s difficult. It’s just a movie. It’s like, relax,” Washington said. “Making a movie is a luxury.”
