"Another birthday, and you look happier, sexier and in better shape than ever…bitch."

Denzel Washington turned on the dramatics during his visit to The Tonight Show on Monday.

The actor, currently on a press tour for his upcoming film Fences, joined host Jimmy Fallon for the segment "Greeting Card Monologues," which saw Fallon and Washington take turns reading holiday, birthday and other types of greeting cards in over-the-top fashion.

Fallon tasked Washington with showcasing the same "emotional depth" during the game as he does onscreen, and he delivered, turning on a British accent, putting on his reading glasses and pretending to hold back tears.

"Another birthday, and you look happier, sexier and in better shape than ever…bitch," one of Washington's (dog-themed) greeting cards read.
