Denzel Washington is now among the Hollywood elite and one of the most well-known actors in the world. Considering his international fame and success, it’s hard to imagine Denzel as a regular 7-year-old boy living a normal life that most of us can relate to.
But Denzel Washington wasn’t always the widely successful actor he is today. Back when he was a young boy growing up in New York, he had more mundane things on his mind. Like most of us did as children, Denzel got a library card at a local library. The woman who handed it was Connie Mauro, a woman who spent 50 years working as librarian.
When she met young Denzel, there was no way she could have known she met a major star in the making. But after almost five decades, Connie still remembered his name.

Denzel Washington paid her a visit at the nursing home where she currently lives.
