While Denzel does not make it a large part of his public persona, Oprah says she heard that he "runs a faithful household."
"That's how I was raised, but my wife, Pauletta, has been the one who's been there every day while I was off doing Malcolm X or The Oprah Show or whatever," Denzel says. "They pray, they know their prayers, they say grace, they say, 'Yes, sir.' 'No, sir.' 'Yes, ma'am.' 'No, ma'am.' She's done a brilliant job. She raised them the way we were raised. ... She's the one who's there. She's the consistent one."
