For his latest movie

The Book of Eli

, Oscar winner 55-year-old Denzel Washington has learnt martial arts from a student of the late Bruce Lee.



He teamed up with Jeff Amata, a disciple of Danny Inosanto who was Bruce Lee’s student, to learn martial arts. “Jeff Amata trained me and I worked with Danny a bit. And after five, six months, we started stretching, moving and doing stuff with our eyes closed and got into the whole vibe,” Washington said.



He also denied studying other post-apocalyptic movies for this one. “I usually take that approach — not to look at them — so that whatever I come up with, I know I came up with on my own. I don’t want to start looking at other films and go, ‘Oh, I can’t do that’,” he said.
