Denzel Washington Birthday: Actor Turns 58 Today

Happy birthday to the Oscar award-winning actor, producer, director, screenwriter, philanthropist and all-around Hollywood hottie, Denzel Washington!

The "Flight" star has continued to keep our hearts ablaze with his catalog of blockbuster films and devastating good looks. And like a fine wine, he seriously only gets better with time.

Between acting on Broadway and the silver screen, Washington has also devoted considerable time and money to organizations close to his heart. He continues to support the Boys And Girls Club, which he credits for helping him through his youth and gifted an incredible $2.25 million to the theater department at his alma mater, Fordham University.

Even though he has said he doesn't know how to be a celebrity, we're pretty sure he's an effortless pro. So, as we wish Denzel another fabulous year of life, here's a little present for you--a slideshow of the superstar actor (and sex symbol) over the years.
