What do you see when you look at me?
A man believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and has dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when he meets a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can't stand idly by - he has to help her.
(on having to do publicity) I`m an actor, so that`s the bottom line. I`m not a marketing whatever. My strength does not lie in marketing a product called `Denzel.` That`s not what I do. My strength lies in playing a part and hopefully entertaining and affecting people on some level. Now I`m not being naive. I know that marketing comes into play when you`re spending 50 or 60 million dollars of other people`s money to make a film. You have to be involved in marketing that product. But the publicity gets to be boring. How many times can I tell the same story? I understand the importance of doing publicity for a film, so I`m willing to do that, but I don`t want to sit around talking about myself. That`s not a great day for me. That`s not my idea of fun.
That ain`t fair, really. Michelle Pfeiffer hasn`t been finding a lot of work recently because she doesn`t like what a woman her age is offered. That`s a real double standard. You get Sean Connery, who gets older and older, still playing opposite young ladies, but it doesn`t work the other way around. - on working with young female co-stars

It was the tabloid story of the past half-year: sexy, blue-eyed soul hitmaker Robin Thicke and his wife, film star Paula Patton, split a few months after he twerked onstage with Miley Cyrus and her foam finger at MTV’s Video Music Awards, and was then caught in a “reverse mirror selfie” cupping the buttocks of a fan.
