Actress Pauletta Pearson was born September 28, 1950; she is currently 62-years-old meaning she is 4 years older than her famous hubby actor Denzel Hayes Washington Jr. In 1970, she was the first black contestant in the Miss North Carolina Pageant, a preliminary to Miss America. She was the 2nd runner-up at only 20-years-old.
The actress married fellow actor on June 25, 1983 after meeting on the set of the 1977 TV film “Wilma.” Pearson and Washington have four children together, son John David born July 28, 1984, who is a football player; daughter Katia born November 1987, a Yale student; and twins Olivia and Malcolm born April 10, 1991. In 1995, the couple got to renewed their wedding vows in South Africa with Archbishop Desmond Tutu officiating. How romantic is that a second ceremony!
Pauletta althoug not as famous as her husband of 30 years also has some small TV roles under her name; in 1977 she appeared and debuted in “Wilma” as Mae Faggs then in 1981 she appears in “Purlie” Unknown Role and we also have a 1998 film also made for television “Beloved” she was one of the “thirty women”
Pauletta decided to stand behind her man once she got married five years after meeting the actor she transformed into a housewife and mother supported her husband throughout his ever-blossoming career.
Denzel and Pauletta recently revealed the secrets behind their long-lasting marriage in an interview with Ebony magazine. Pauletta said:
“I live with this man. I see the down part. I see the sad part. I see every part,” “He has and knows he has that stability in me as his wife. That gives him strength, regardless of if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.”
“There’s no magical mystery. We go through up and downs like any couple.”
In another interview when asked the same question he said
“Do whatever my wife says, and keep my mouth shut!”
So what do you think change from one cold answer to the other? Think one of Hollywood’s golden marriages is having problems? It’s been reported there are pictures of Denzel kissing a younger woman but nothing has been confirmed yet. In the past he’s been accused of cheating but it doesn’t seem to have affected their marriage before. Think Pauletta is being practical and just prefers to ignore her famous hubbies flings or should she do something about it?? Her recent comments to Ebony mag already seem to imply that she is aware of it but doesn’t seem to mind doesn’t it??
Pauletta’s Oscar award winning hubby was said to have cheated on her for years with PR of the stars Marvet Britto as well with Out of Time co-star Sanaa Latham. Now the infamous images show Denzel Washington kissing a blonde woman on the lips. The photos are being shopped to numerous media sources.
