Easing into filming, becoming too emotionally involved in a role, and the pros and cons of playing a fictional versus real person -- acclaimed American actor Denzel Washington shared Sunday how he approaches acting.Oscar-winner Washington was at the Toronto film festival for the premiere of "The Equalizer," director Antoine Fuqua's adaptation of the 1980s television series that starred Edward Woodward.Washington last collaborated with Fuqua on "Training Day," which premiered in Toronto and went on to earn Washington a best actor Oscar in 2001 for his performance as a rogue cop in Los Angeles.Washington spent the first day of filming "The Equalizer" folding napkins over and over for a scene.Best known for heavy roles, Washington said he would gladly try a lighter comedy or a children's movie.The role went to Brad Pitt and became a box office smash hit.Fuqua confided that he handed off directing "Prisoners" with Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman to Quebec director Denis Villeneuve, because as a parent he felt uncomfortable spending a year on a film about child abduction.
