Denzel Washington loves his fans but thinks Drake may have taken his love for the actor a step too far.
Appearing on “The Tonight Show” Wednesday night, the “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” star was informed by Jimmy Fallon of a tattoo Drake recently got of his favourite actor’s face.

Fallon showed a picture of the tattoo, which depicts Washington as he appeared in the Spike Lee film “Mo’ Better Blues”.
“I just don’t know what body part this is from on Drake,” the late-night host added.
“You’ve got me wondering now,” Washington said. “Where is that? That’s crazy.”
Washington did say he believes Drake also got tattoos of other people he admires. “Maybe I’m on there,” Fallon joked.
During the show, Fallon also got Washington to relive his old basketball-playing days by competing in a “Random Object Shootout” using objects like a bowl of cranberry sauce and a VHS tape of the film “He Got Game”.
As an added surprise, Fallon then brought out NBA star Steph Curry to take a shot. Washington was so shocked he had to put on his glasses just to make sure it was really him.
Offered the chance to shoot first, Washington said, “Out of respect, I want to let the young buck go first.”
