Denzel and Pauletta met in 1977 while the actor was filming his first TV role in Wilma – which she was also starring in. These two have been inseparable since then. On marriage, and how Hollywood couples always break up, here is what Denzel had to say during his interview on the T. D Jakes Show :
“I don’t know if it’s show business that has a monopoly on divorce, it’s just that you hear about it,” explained Denzel. “I just think that you have to work at it. Not give up on each other. It’s a commitment. It’s not all the honeymoon, it doesn’t last forever, so you work at it.And hopefully you’re good friends first, that might help!”
He also couldn’t stop complimenting his better half.
“She has done the heavy lifting. She has been the consistent one. She has given the daily religious instruction. She was the one taking them to school, while I was out providing.”
