Denzel Washington, the Oscar-winning actor named America’s Favorite Movie Star last month, took time to tell young actors last summer that whatever “itch” they have is proof of God working in their lives.

Washington, moved up from No. 7 in last year’s Harris (Nielson) Poll – making it the fifth time he’s been America’s favorite, previously being recognized in a 3-year spot from 2006-2008. He gained the honor again in 2012 and landed in the No. 2 spot in 2013.

In a four-minute motivational speech on a darkened stage with perhaps two dozen young actors, Washington told the actors, “That itch you have to be whatever it is you want to be – behind the camera, in front of the stage, behind the stage – that itch, that desire for good is God’s proof to you, set beforehand, to indicate it is yours. You already have it; claim it.
