Denzel Washington has one of the smoothest names in entertainment. The Award-winning actor is known to the world on a first-name basis and DEN-ZEL rolls of the tongue of fans and admirers worldwide.

An old clip from 2013 has resurfaced with Washington explaining to British talk show host Graham Norton the right way to pronounce his name: It’s more like DEN-ZIL than DEN-ZEL. Why you may ask? Washington carries the same name as his father. In order to not get the two confused, Washington’s mother would pronounce his name DEN-ZEL.
Comedian Kev On Stage took to Instagram to share his surprise.
