Just in case anyone was wondering whether Denzel Washington was a top chap or not, we can now officially put that to rest.

He is.

Thanks to an Imgur user called OpenFaceSandwich, a rather lovely tale has emerged, involved Denzel and a librarian on her 99th birthday.

Over to OpenFaceSandwich:

“Ok so my grandma is from Mt. Vernon, NY where she was a librarian at the Mt. Vernon Public Library for 50 years.

“She ALWAYS tells the story of how she gave Denzel Washington his first library card and how she remembers him for his unique name. And ‘he was the cutest thing’.

“So for a while several parties have tried contacting Denzel to no avail. But the nursing home where she lives set out to make her 99th Birthday Party very special.

“For her birthday she spoke on the phone with him, and said he would be near her in December, so he stopped by to say hi.”

Perhaps best of all, as a keen knitter, she made him three scarves, one of which he’s sporting in the picture.

And he seems very happy indeed about it too.
