State of Washington
Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington, right, and director Robert Zemeckis pose for photographers in Tokyo on Wednesday during a news conference to promote their film “Flight.” Washington plays a cocaine and alcoholic-addicted pilot who manages to save a disabled plane from greater disaster by rolling it upside down to bring it out of a steep dive ahead of a crash landing. Washington, 58, has been nominated for a Best Actor Oscar at next Sunday’s Academy Awards. He said he doesn’t think about such things and just tries to live his life one day at a time. “I’m still a work in progress,” he said. “Flight” opens in Japan on March 1.
