Denzel Washington responds to online comparisons between himself and Will Smith with a tongue-in-cheek comment, with many fans praising him for his good humor and commenting on his hilarious response.

Denzel Washington responds to Will Smith comparisons

Speaking to Two Bees TV during an interview at the premiere for his movie A Journal for Jordan, Denzel Washington was asked “what are your thoughts on the comparisons to Will Smith? That’s a constant online debate, everyone’s always like ‘Denzel or Will’, how do you feel?”

Washington then laughed in response, saying: “He has a whole lot more money than me.”

Two acclaimed actors

It is unclear where or how the debate between Will Smith and Denzel Washington came about, but both actors are industry juggernauts and legends in their own right. Both Smith and Washington have vastly accomplished careers but more noteworthily, their careers have developed in very different ways and at different paces.

Many fans, however, have acknowledged Will Smith’s impact on the industry but highlighted that Denzel Washington is on another level. But with that being said, no amount of money or awards can adequately account for the incredible footprint that both legends have left behind on American entertainment, with Smith having a similar career path to Washington’s but also branching out with success in music and more recently, YouTube.

Both actors also started out at a time when opportunities for young Black actors were few and far between and their success has paved the way and opened doors for young Black actors who are coming up.

A Journal for Jordan is Denzel Washington’s latest movie where he acts as both the director and producer, while Will Smith produced and starred in the Williams sisters biopic, King Richard where he played the tennis sisters’ legendary father, Richard Dove Williams Jr.
