Denzel’s currently promoting his new movie, ‘2 Guns,’ but he used a July 29 interview on the ‘Today’ show to defend his marriage and refute any claims that he allegedly cheated on his wife of thirty years, Pauletta.

Denzel Washington was shockingly accused of cheating on his wife, Pauletta, less than three weeks ago. While the A-list star has kept relatively quiet since then, the 2 Guns actor couldn’t escape Savannah Guthrie’s curiosity on the matter while promoting his new movie on the Today show on July 29.

Savannah mentioned how Denzel, 58, and his wife were recently featured on the cover of the July 2013 issue of Ebony magazine. Having been married for over thirty years, the Today show co-anchor asked Denzel what their secret is.

“Do what she says,” Denzel joked.

While Denzel didn’t flat out deny cheating, his response appeared to dispel the report, which claimed he was spotted cozying up to a blonde at a house party in Malibu.

Pauletta, 62, spoke about their marriage in Ebony magazine. She 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 stability in me as his wife. That’s what gives him strength, regardless if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.

This is not the first time that Denzel has been accused of cheating on his wife. In 2003, there were reports that the actor was having an affair with his Out of Time co-star Sanaa Latham.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did Denzel do a good job at defending his marriage?
