So last week, I went to this screening of this movie Cover, which was a really good drama! Good eye opener!! Definitely worth checking out and its good to support a film not only starring Black actors, but financed by us as well. So after the screening, the next day I participated in this phoner interview with Vivica Fox and a few other media outlets. Well, today while searching my beloved Bossip (my fingers are crossed a certain love of my life gets a job there), what do I see but the responses to two questions I asked Ms. Fox.
When I clicked the link it went to an interview on OK! Magazine. I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I guess I asked some good questions out the bunch since out of all the questions she was asked, my two were the ones that made it to the piece:)
CJ to Vivica: Now girl, at the end of this movie we see another woman about to go down the same road of being lied to and cheated on by a man on the down low. So what should women get out of this film on protecting themselves?
“I tell women to always be inquisitive and always follow your first mind,” the 43-year-old actress says. “If your woman instinct tells you ‘something ain’t right,’ girl, check it out. Sometimes we have a tendency to trust if you’ve been with him for a long time or he’s taking care of everything. Sometimes you’ve just gotta follow your instincts to make sure that everything is all right. Don’t ignore it because he’s taking care of the bills. I hope this film teaches everyone not to trust anybody and practice safe sex. Look out for you first, at all times. ”
CJ to Vivica: Also in this film we have someone in the entertainment industry who is on the down low. Is this something you have seen up close working in the industry?
“Oh, sure. I have a lot of friends in the fashion industry and the entertainment industry in general. The reason I like having my gay boyfriends is because they can tell you which ones be playing for both clubs. Mmhm. You appreciate that. He’ll be like ‘suspect, suspect!’ over there.”
Now read the OK! piece if you have a sec. . .
And I totally agree! Every girl has to have a gay bf.
Charanna would be proud to know Motives II was mentioned in the interview. And who knew "Two Can Play That Game" now has a sequel? Can't wait to check that out . . .lol
