Denzel Washington Is America's Favorite Movie Star
02.02.09 by REELZ
We are not joking. You may, however, be scratching your head, trying to remember the last Denzel Washington movie you saw. Us too. And yet according to The Harris Poll, an online survey of 2,388 U.S. adults conducted in December 2008, Denzel Washington is our favorite movie star. For the third year in a row! Conclusion: Someone must actually be watching The Bone Collector, which seems to be playing on cable every time we turn on the TV. Certainly Washington didn't achieve favorite status at the multiplex. Out of the nearly 40 movies he's appeared in, only three have topped $100 million at the box office. And only one has topped $130. Even in a bad year, Will Smith does better than that.
