John Boyega Reacts to Denzel Washington Comparisons Amid Release of ‘Breaking’


John Boyega knows that people are comparing him to Denzel Washington, but he’s not here for it.

The 30-year-old actor stepped out this week for the premiere of his new movie Breaking on Wednesday night (August 24) at The London in West Hollywood, Calif.

John was joined at the event by co-stars Nicole Beharie, Connie Britton, and Selenis Leyva, as well as writer and director Abi Damaris Corbin.

The movie, which also stars the late Michael K. Williams, follows a Marine war veteran who faces mental and emotional challenges when he tries to reintegrate back into civilian life. The film is getting comparisons to Denzel‘s John Q and the phrase “John is Denzel” was recently trending on Twitter.

John told Yahoo, “I’m not involved in that conversation, man. If that’s what they see then that’s all a blessing. Denzel is one of the best actors in the industry. And I just started out. So for me, I haven’t got the time or the stripes to be able to even involve myself in such a conversation. I will definitely thank God for such an opportunity.”

The movie is being released this weekend.
