Denzel Washington is an American actor, screenwriter, producer, and director who has a net worth of $220 million. Every year Denzel Washington earns $60-$80 million dollars. Washington was born and raised in the New York metro area, the son of a beauty salon owner and a Pentecostal minister. He earned a B.A. from Fordham University and won a full-ride scholarship to the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, though he returned to New York after a year to pursue acting professionally. Washington began in Summer Stock Theater, slowly working his way into minor film and made-for-television roles, but in 1982, he landed a spot on the successful medical drama St. Elsewhere and remained there until the show’s final season in 1988. The same year, he received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in the anti-Apartheid film Cry Freedom, and in 1989, he won that same award for his performance in Glory.
In 1992, he received a Best Actor nomination for his performance in Malcolm X, and in 1999, he was nominated again and also won a Golden Globe for The Hurricane. The following year, he finally won Best Actor for his role in Training Day, becoming only the second African-American actor to win Best Actor; that year, he also appeared in the Disney football drama Remember the Titans, which earned over $100 million at the box office. In 2002, Washington stepped behind the camera to direct Antwone Fisher; he has since directed The Great Debaters and produced several more movies, including The Book of Eli and several television programs.
Denzel Washington was born in Mount Vernon, New York, on December 28, 1954 to parents Denzel Hayes Washington, Sr. and Lennis ‘Lynne’ Washington. His parents divorced when he was a teenager and Denzel was sent to Oakland Military Academy in New Windsor, New York. For high school he attended Mainland High School in Daytona Beach, Florida.
After graduating, Denzel attended Texas Tech University, but didn’t stay. He earned a bachelor’s degree in drama and journalism from Fordham University in 1977. Around this time, Denzel worked at a summer camp as a creative arts director. He participated in a talent show and wowed co-workers who insisted he should be an actor.
Hearing this during a time of indecision pushed him to pursue the idea. He enrolled at the Lincoln Center campus to study acting. From there he landed a role in The Emperor Jones and Othello and decided to go on to graduate school at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, California. He stayed for just a year before returning to New York to start acting.
Denzel’s first serious role was in 1981’s Carbon Copy. After that he was cast as Dr. Phillip Chandler in the TV-drama St. Elsewhere and films like A Soldier’s Story, Power and Cry Freedom. The latter role landed him his very first Academy Award. His second came in 1989, when he won best supporting actor for his role in Glory.
He continued this trajectory through the 1990s and 2000s, during which he starred in Spike Lee’s Mo’ Better Blues, the 1992 film Malcolm X, Crimson Tide, He Got Game, Remember the Titans, Training Day, Man on Fire and more. He won several awards during this time, including Golden Globes and another Oscar.
Denzel has returned to doing some theater, though he is largely known for his on-screen work. He starred opposite Viola Davis in Broadway’s Fences, which then led to a role in the film adaptation.
