Actress Sanaa Lathan is graced the cover of Upscale Magazine as she talks about growing up in a famous family and being a celebrity. The NY native is displaying uber sexiness inside of the new issue as wears all black as the light reflects on her gorgeous face. There have been reports that she is dating rapper French Montana and that the two have been hanging out a lot.
Read some of the excerpts from the interview:
On why she chose to become an actor:
“I was a toddler on Broadway, basically. My mom was in the original cast of The Wiz on Broadway. I was always around it, behind the scenes. My father is the first black director in TV. It gets no more in your face than that.”
On why she never worked with her father:
“I’ve never worked with my father. A lot of people say that’s nepotism and part of the reason for my success.”
On being a “real celebrity”:
“I don’t feel like a celebrity until I’m doing interviews like this. I walk around in sweats. I’m not always hair and makeup ready, and I have real people around me. That’s the key. You can’t help but stay in pocket, because real people don’t tolerate anything else.”
On her next steps:
“I am moving into the behind-the-scenes aspect now. When you’ve been in the business so long, you say to yourself, “I know how to do this.” I know you can never say never, but I’ll never stop acting. I’ll just keep adding to what the word “performance” ultimately means to me.”
