The 57-year-old, who plays an alcoholic pilot in 'Flight', said that his spouse Pauletta was a little disturbed by his character, reported People magazine. "After a scene where I'm drunk and arguing the whole day, the last thing I want to do is any of those things so it was therapeutic.
But my wife was a little disturbed by this one to be honest," he said. Washington's character fights with his son in the movie but in real life the actor said that his sons are more physically powerful than him these days.
"In basketball I used to be able to beat them, then it got to the point where they could beat me. My oldest is a football player, so he's strong," he added.
Washington is currently filming upcoming crime-drama movie '2 Guns' alongside Mark Wahlberg and Paula Patton. The motion picture tells the story of DEA agent and a Naval Intelligence Officer investigating each other because they believe each other is stealing money from the mob.
