Check out Sanaa Lathan on the cover of Rolling Out Magazine. She sat down and talked to Rolling Out about her personality, social media and “The Best Man Holiday”. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:
Recently, you’ve opened up a bit more and really gravitated toward Instagram.
Well, this is definitely a new thing for me. I was very resistant to social media at first, and actually just a couple months ago when I was on [The Best Man Holiday] set, I started having fun with it. At first, it was just a creative thing for me, and then I got encouraged by everyone from my agent to the studios, to keep it up. It’s really interesting to me how involved social media can be from a business perspective, so I’m interested in exploring where it can go as it relates to my career.
Let’s switch gears and discuss the film. Tell us about your character.
Well, I play Robin, who is now married to Take Diggs’ character, Harper, and we have been married for over 10 years now. She’s a chef at a very fabulous restaurant in Harlem, and she’s also nine months pregnant
Overall, how was your experience on set?
We had so much fun. I mean, we’re all kind of like family now. We kept in touch after the first movie, and I’ve done other movies with Taye. Regina Hall and I are best friends; Nia Long and I are great friends, so we just had a blast to the point where I think the director would occasionally get mad, because we were having too much fun in between takes. But I think the genuine love for each other really translates to what you’ll see, and feel with the movie. I honestly think that the people who loved the first movie will not be disappointed.
