OSCAR-winning actor Denzel Washington has admitted he wet the bed as a child.

The 50-year-old actor spoke candidly about his experiences of mistaking bathroom dreams for reality - but was keen to reiterate the mishap only happened during childhood.

Washington explains, "Guys, you all know what I'm talking about. You're dreaming, you think you've gotten up and gone to the bathroom but you really haven't, you're still in the bed.

"No, it's true, you think you're getting up. In the dream you're up, you're on your way to the bathroom.

"You're dreaming you're in the bathroom. Now it's warm, now it's warm in the bathroom and you wake up. This is a kid, when you're a kid."
