'The Equalizer' Star Denzel Washington Impersonates Beyonce's Husband Jay Z On The ‘Queen Latifah Show,’ Talks Growing Up With Ludacris’ Dad: WATCH

During his recent appearance as a guest on "The Queen Latifah Show" to promote his film "The Equalizer," Academy-winning actor Denzel Washington gave an impression of Jay Z Carter.

When host Queen Latifah mentioned how he likes to freestyle, Washington quickly said, "Don't put me on the spot now. I can't do it, I can't do it, I can't do it."

Washington still refused even after Latifah pulled out a microphone to the delight of the audience. On the other hand, he shared a story about visiting a recording studio where Beyonce Knowles' husband and Lenny Kravitz were working on music together.

"Jay Z said, 'Yeah, D, I'ma play this for you, D,'" Washington recalled and gave an impression of the rapper's signature laugh. "It was 'Change Clothes.' He's like, so what'd you think, D?' I was like, 'Play that again.' He was so nonchalant with it."

Also, Washington told Latifah that he grew up with Ludacris' father, Wayne Bridges.

"We were musical talents even back then. We played The Beatles. We went out and got some wigs and some two-dollar guitars, and acted like we were the Beatles and won a talent show," Washington said.  

"That's my story, and I'm sticking to it," he added.

Reuniting Washington with "Training Day" director Antoine Fuqua, "The Equalizer" is on its way to earning over $36 million at the box office during its North American debut, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It also stars Marton Csokas, Chloe Grace Moretz, David Harbour, Haley Bennett, Bill Pullman, Melissa Leo, David Meunier and Johnny Skourtis among others.

Earlier this month, Washington revealed he likes rapper Eminem in one of Reddit's patented AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions.

With Sia Furler, Eminem provided the new track "Guts Over Fear" to the soundtrack of Washington's latest movie "The Equalizer," Music Times reported.

"Eminem, yes, and I like Nas, and Jay-Z. Eminem and NAS are real wordsmiths. So yes, I'm DEFINITELY an Eminem fan. Where's he been? Where you been Eminem?" Washington wrote.
