Denzel Washington: 'My wife turned down my proposal twice'

WEDDED BLISS: Denzel Washington and wife Pauletta

HE MAY be the most sought after man in Hollywood, but actor Denzel Washington has revealed he had to propose to his wife three times before she said yes.

The two-time Oscar winner, 58, said he popped the question three times to the future Pauletta Washington, 62, after she rejected the first two.

"[I proposed] Twice!" He told Access Hollywood when they inquired about the storied three proposals at the LA premiere of his latest film 2 Guns.

"It was three times," Pauletta confirmed. "I know with age sometimes things [go], the mind [goes]," she joked.

"Why was it twice...Why would I have to ask again?" her befuddled hubby wondered.

"Because I said no," Pauletta fired back.

"You heard it here first," Washington said. "She turned me down, she said no. And since it was three times, that means she turned me down twice."

The couple, who marked their 30th wedding anniversary on June 25, have four children together.
