Attack the Block star John Boyega has been compared to Hollywood icon Denzel Washington and he has responded by hinting that he is not a part of that conversation.
The Nigerian-British actor attended the premiere of his new movie Breaking on Wednesday night (August 24) in California and said that it is a blessing to be compared with Washington.
“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", he stated to Yahoo.
Breaking co-stars the late Michael K. Williams and centres on a Marine war veteran who must deal with mental and emotional issues when he tries to live a civilian life.
