Denzel Washington is celebrating his 58th birthday in style, jetting out to tropical St. Barts in the Caribbean with his wife Pauletta to join other celebrities already partying there.

Witnesses saw Denzel lounging on the beach in St. Barts, the Yahoo! News blog OMG reported. Denzel and his wife were later seen boarding a yacht for an afternoon on the water, then went to a restaurant.

From Us Weekly:

"The couple, who have been married for 29 years, held hands as they walked along the beach before boarding a yacht for a fun-filled day in the sun. Washington stayed covered up in a gray shirt, shorts, hat and sunglasses. His wife showed off her legs in a short beach cover-up."

The 57th year was not too bad for Denzel Washington. Voters in Quigly Publishing Company's Annual Poll of Motion Picture Exhibitors named him the "Top Money-Making Star" for 2012, meaning he is seen as the biggest box office generator of the year.

After Denzel Washington is done celebrating his 58th birthday on St. Barts, it's right back to work. The busy actor has signed on to star in director Nicolas Winding Refn's The Equalizer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
