What words did Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry find to ease tensions when Will Smith was furious after slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars?

Well, against all odds, the trio prayed.

The reason ?

According to the

Equalizer

star , his co-worker really got screwed over by "the devil," and that's no joke.

"There's this line that goes, 'When the devil ignores you, then you know you're doing something wrong.

The devil will say "Oh no, leave him alone, it's my favorite".

Conversely, when the devil comes to you, maybe it's because he's trying to do something good.

And for some reason, the devil got his hands on that circumstance that night,” Denzel Washington confidently explained to

Variety

.

The actor had been joined by director Tyler Perry and we could see them confer just after the slap inflicted on Chris Rock.

Consultations, it was actually "a few prayers" said by the filmmaker.

"I'm not going to say what we talked about, but by the grace of God, it might as well have been one of us."

Who are we to judge?

I don't know all the ins and outs of the situation, but I know the only solution was to pray, as I see it,” he added.

From Scientology to “mega churches”

If Hollywood was, a few years ago, the favorite playground of the Church of Scientology, with Tom Cruise as spokesperson of choice, for some time now, the evangelical movement has obviously made a successful takeover of the city of angels and its illustrious inhabitants.

Jada Pinkett Smith had also admitted to having moved away from the Church of Scientology to have taken courses there.

The actress and Will Smith had even set up a school close to the movement.

But today, from Chris Pratt (who met his second wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, in the pews of Hillsong Church) to Justin Bieber (who ended his addictions, he says, thanks to the same parish), all have their reference steeple.

Few actors denounce these churches.

Only Elliot Page had ventured there.

Denzel Washington adheres to the Church of God in Christ, of which his father was one of the pastors, a Pentecostal church.

Tyler Perry, meanwhile, believes he owes his success to God, a faith that he explores in his artistic creations, as his official website explains.

He too is to be classified among the evangelicals.

Like Kanye West shortly before launching his presidential campaign, he passed through the pulpit of Lakewood Church, led by televangelist Joel Osteen, which posted a net profit of $ 59 million in 2017.

For the little anecdote, last year, a plumber who came to do some minor repairs in this "mega church" saw "about 500 envelopes fall from the wall" which he had just broken in the toilets, containing hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and checks, as CNN reported in December.

The money is believed to be linked to a robbery dating back to 2014, when a church safe was broken into - $600,000 was stolen, representing a week's worth of donations from worshippers.

No doubt a miracle.
