Denzel Washington Reveals Bizarre Recurring Flying Dream As New Movie 'Flight' Soars
Denzel Washington plays an alcoholic pilot in his stirring new movie Flight that has one of the most incredible plane crash scenes ever.
And the handsome Oscar-winner revealed that even before working on the moving drama and learning how to become a pilot for his role as Captain Whip Whitaker, he had a recurring flying dream that he's never quite understood.
"I've had it for most of my life," Denzel told okmgazine.com. "And somehow I always end up near the city and I go underneath bridges, like these low bridges that will either be over a train or like the Conrail trains or water, a small body of water."
"Then I would have the other part of the dream it would be this takeoff that goes on forever, and I would be like, 'Oh I've got to stay below the street wires.'" And then I'm starting to go back up, but then, you know, I've got to get back below the wires. I have no idea what it means."
The movie, directed by Robert Zemeckis, has already been getting Oscar buzz and Denzel says he had a blast working on the film which was "an adventure."
But there have been some films, names of which he didn't mention, that weren't so fun for him to do.
"Tough spots for me are pictures I don't want to be on," he laughed. "When the people say, 'What's the hardest part of a movie?' You know, if you're on a movie and it's like the third day and you go, 'How many days have we been shooting?' 'Like three.' 'How many more have we got to go?' '117.' That's a tough movie for me, but this was an adventure."
"I had to be a part of [this movie]. And it was a process for us once I got involved, and working with different people. But it was on the page, the guts the pain, the tears."
Flight is in theaters now.
