Denzel Washington expressed his support for soldiers and police officers who put their lives on the line so Americans have the freedom to complain about what they do.

The Oscar-winning actor declared his support for the military and law enforcement in an interview in which he called out people who "put down" the men and women for whom Washington says he has "the utmost respect."

"I have the utmost respect for what they do, for what our soldiers do, that sacrifice their lives. I just don't care for people who put those kind of people down. If it weren't for them, we would not have the freedom to complain about what they do," he told Yahoo Entertainment.

Washington was promoting his latest film, The Little Things in which he stars as a Los Angeles County Sheriff who hunts down a serial killer (played by Jared Leto).

Denzel Washington urged late star Chadwick Boseman to hurry up and marry his wife, Taylor Simone, before someone else did.

In a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning, the Oscar winner opened up about working with Chadwick on his final film, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, and recalled offering the young star a little relationship advice.

Chadwick and Taylor were only dating when the Black Panther star was shooting the Netflix movie. Denzel, who co-produced the film, saw something beautiful between the couple and suggested Boseman should act upon it.

"They weren't even married yet, and I used to watch how she took care of him, and I actually said to him, 'Man, you know, you need to put a ring on that finger', cause she kept her eye on him and she watched him," Washington explained.

"I'm like, 'Man, she loves that guy'. But I didn't know what we know now."

Boseman lost his secret battle with cancer in August at age 43, and Washington, 65, reveals no one on the Ma Rainey's Black Bottom set even knew he was sick.

"Credit to him; he kept it to himself. It was nobody's business. He was there to deliver and he delivered," adds Denzel, who is pictured with his wife of 37 years, Pauletta at the Oscars in 2003.

Chadwick and Taylor were married in a private ceremony earlier in the year and many people didn't know he was married until after his death.

Migos rapper Offset went shopping with his entourage in Hollywood, Calif., while his wife, rapper Cardi B, stayed back at the hotel with their infant daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus. Cardi and Offset registered the child's name so no one else can make a profit from merchandise with the baby's name on it.
