Zitat des Tages von Sanaa Lathan:
I was working straight for nine months and I'm exhausted. I'm ready to relax for a little while and read. I don't want to work for work sake; I have to be excited about it.
I wouldn't want anyone to destroy the earth.
I got nominated for a Tony, which was a complete surprise. It was an experience that I will always cherish.
To make a movie is very grueling at times. Long, long hours and cold weather.
Some of us just have to work harder to stay in the game.
I think Hollywood is so driven by money, the people who are making the decisions are not necessarily reflective of the melting pot, so what stories are you going to want to tell? You're going to want to tell stories about yourself.
People make jokes about how black people are the first ones to be killed off.
The Alien is gross, scary. There is something in a human being that looks at them and sees it as a cockroach. You can never feel nurturing towards the cockroach.
I had never picked up a basketball before. I went through a grueling audition process. It was almost as if I was learning to walk. It would be like teaching somebody to dance ballet for a role.
I have dated all races, and I believe you should be free to do whatever you want.
As different as me and Sigourney look is as different as these two characters are. I'm not filling her shoes. I'm doing a part that has the same monsters, but it's a completely different movie.
I didn't get to see Predator until halfway through shooting. It was great to get an education while I was shooting because it made me excited to be part of this legacy.
I liked the fact that there were so many different representations of black women and black men in the movie. It wasn't like we all had the same agenda.
If you're in love and there's that chemistry, that's what it's all about.
I look forward to going to work. Everybody is at the top of their game. It was like we just got to play.
When you have a play, you have to be on every night.
Good storytelling appeals to me - good writing.
I think I'm a character actress in a leading lady's body, but the industry doesn't really see me that way.
Sometimes when you don't care, people are attracted to that.
I come from the theater, and I've done a lot of character work in the theater, but Hollywood stuff in film and TV, they've been more leading lady/ingenue type roles.
When you're on a set it can be very tedious and slow. It's just not as big as when you see it on film.
I'll eventually go back to theater because the feeling of being on stage where you have the audience right there, you can't replace that with anything.
I've never gotten any complaints about my headscarf from a man. You can be sexy with a head wrap!
You would never expect a black woman to be the hero.
Kelsey Grammer is one of the best actors I've ever worked with.
In terms of facial creams or lotions, I try to switch it up and stay as natural as possible. l like Le Mer facial cream for when I have an event. It's very rich and sometimes too rich for some people, but I like it.
I really prefer the actual experience of being onstage and living the character from beginning to end with the energy of the audience. There's nothing that beats that feeling, and yet I really have trouble with the eight shows a week.
