16 Of Your Stars That You Will Be Shocked After Knowing Their Married Partners And How They Get Engaged

12-Denzel Washington & Pauletta Pearson

Denzel Washington says he takes his job very seriously, and it shows when you see him portray his characters perfectly. At home, however, his wife is in charge, if the actor is to be believed.

His wife’s name is Pauletta Pearson and the couple have been together for over 40 years already! Pauletta is the woman of his life, since they met three times “by chance” following the shooting of a film, in 1977. The Washington have four children, the eldest of whom is over 30 years old, and they are still as attached as ever, to each other.
