Denzel Washington Wouldn’t Tolerate Leto Shenanigans

The Little Things stars a trio of Academy Award winners, with Washington (Glory and Training Day), Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), and Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody). The gritty thriller follows two cops from different California counties who are on the hunt for a serial killer. Naturally, Leto plays the suspected murderer, and while this role could’ve allowed him to let his method acting ways come into the picture yet again, Washington set the record straight in an interview with USA Today.

When the subject of Leto’s previous stunts came out, Washington firmly shut it down, saying, “He didn’t do any of that with me.” It sounds like it was all for the best, as Washington went on to say that “he’d have been paid a visit. That wouldn’t happen.” It’s unclear who exactly Washington would’ve sent after Leto, but after 40 years in Hollywood, it’s probably safe to say he has powerful friends in powerful places.

In fact, Washington had nothing but kind things to say about working with both Leto and Malek. “There’s a whole crop of these younger actors, and it’s fascinating to watch them coming up behind me,” the veteran performer said. “Unfortunately, we lost one with Chad Boseman… But Jared is one, obviously, and Rami is doing great work. It’s inspiring and like a wake-up call. It’s like, I have to get my act together here. These guys ain’t playing.”

Washington doesn’t seem to mind passing the torch so to speak. In fact, he even paid to send Boseman to the University of Oxford for a theater program in the ’90s (via CNBC). It proved to be an investment very much worth making.
