    "Ballers" star John David Washington visits Steve Harvey

    It’s not as easy being Denzel Washington’s son as you might think. John David Washington joined Steve Harvey on Tuesday’s show to discuss his character on the show "Ballers." But when Harvey mentioned that Washington’s character having a way with the ladies, Washington noted in reality he struggles with his love life.

    "It’s hard out here, Mr. Harvey," Washington said. "I have trust issues thinking that [women] pick me because of who my father is."

    Washington said that he used to even lie to people about his famous father’s occupation, referring to him in the past as having the actual occupation that his father played in acting roles. But now, in the "Google era" as he referred to it, the truth is inescapable.
