In a resurfaced clip of a candid interview on Jamie Foxx’s Off Script With Jamie Foxx series, Denzel Washington opened up about a story from the 1988 Oscars, detailing what happened after the ceremony.
“Let me tell you a Sean Connery story,” the Training Day actor said. “He was up forThe Untouchables, I was up for Cry Freedom, and he comes out to present an award and got a three-minute standing ovation --- for presenting an award.”
“I went to get the coats,” he added while bursting into laughter with Foxx. “Cause I know I ain’t winning tonight. So I’m leaving without the Oscar, but as I’m leaving, I see them in the back getting the food ready for the governor’s ball. I see a big tray, I’m like ‘I’m leaving here with somethin'. I’m from around the way, I’m leaving with something.”
In true Twitter fashion, fans jumped in to add hilarious memes to enhance Washington’s story, making it even funnier.
