The Magnificent Seven star Denzel Washington says he never watched cowboy movies as a kid.
The 61-year-old may be one of the stars of the Western remake, but he never saw the original and being brought up by a Pentecostal minister father meant he didn’t really watch many movies apart from religious epics, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I grew up with King of Kings, The Ten Commandments. I never went to see any cowboy movies,” Washington told Metro newspaper.
“We didn’t go to movies. I saw Bonanza, some of those TV shows, but I wanted to be outside, I didn’t want to be in the house. I didn’t want to watch cowboys, I wanted to be one,” he added.
