37. Denzel Washington
We’re all familiar with those overbearing sports dads that try to get their children enthusiastic about sports, and turns out acclaimed actor Denzel Washington is one of those parents! The actor married his wife Pauletta Pearson in 1983, and the two have four sons together, the oldest a former football player. After so many years of marriage, and although his kids are no longer kids, but adults, they manage to maintain the spark in their marriage as well as their firm hand in parenting.
Washington believes in old school parenting, including the formal “yes, ma’am” and “no, sir.” He is a very loving and supporting father, but when it came to his son’s football career, it’s safe to say he was too supportive. He was his son’s biggest fans, and while it’s nice to have your parents support you and cheer you from the court side, in this case, the actor admitted he might have pushed the line, and his son, just a bit too much. We can’t say for sure, but this might be one of the reasons why his son is no longer in the field of sports.
