In the know: MO’NIQUE SPEAKS WITH W MAGAZINE ABOUT HER ROLE IN ‘PRECIOUS’
Mo’Nique has been the talk of the film festival for months now for her STAND-OUT role in the upcoming dramatic film, PRECIOUS. She recently sat down with W Magazine and spoke about the film and the audience reaction to it.
ON WHAT IT MEANS TO THE FILM THAT OPRAH WINFREY SIGNED ON AS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER… “What do you think it means when the person under God says the movie is good? Oprah might be right there with the Lord! She done gave the whole world free chicken! That’s godly, baby. That’s called a miracle. So what does it mean when Oprah Winfrey
says, ‘This is good’? Then the world – not just America, the world – says, ‘It’s good.’”
ON WATCHING A SCREENING OF PRECIOUS ALONGSIDE THE “TINSELTOWN ELITE” AT THE SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL…“None of those people looked like us. And it was mind-blowing when it was over, to have white men in their 60s coming up to us, crying. It killed the myth. It killed the myth that a white man couldn’t possibly enjoy two big black women onscreen.”
