Denzel Washington wears mask to get pizza to-go in Malibu… ahead of his 37th

67


Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington stopped by the celeb-favorite Malibu Country Mart on Wednesday to pick up pizza to-go from Italian restaurant Tra di Noi.

The 65-year-old legendary actor protected himself with a surgical mask, which California Governor Gavin Newsom made mandatory for all public outings last Thursday.

Mayor Eric Garcetti extended the stay-at home order indefinitely due to the 89K confirmed COVID-19 cases in LA County, which has led to 3,207 deaths as of Wednesday – according to Johns Hopkins University.

Denzel’s street sighting came the day before he and his wife Pauletta (born Pearson) celebrate 37 years of wedded bliss, which is practically unheard of in Hollywood.

The acting couple originally met on the 1977 set of NBC movie Wilma, and they renewed their vows in a 1995 ceremony officiated by anti-apartheid activist Desmond Tutu in South Africa.

‘I do what I’m told. I keep my mouth shut,’ Washington joked to People in 2018 about their secret to longevity.

‘What pops into my head: security, food, a beautiful home. The difference between a house and a home, it’s a big difference. You can buy a house, but that doesn’t make it a home – and not to say a man can’t make a home a home.

‘But my wife has made our house a home, and raised [our] beautiful kids and protected them and sacrificed for them. She did the heavy-lifting.’

Olivia played Margaret in The Public Theater’s all-black Shakespeare in the Park production of Much Ado About Nothing last year at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.
