The Hollywood actress is the cover star of the latest issue of Allure magazine and on the cover she channels her inner Diana Ross with a huge head of curly hair.
The 44-year-old diva shares quite a lot with the magazine – from her personal life to her professional one.
Read excerpts below:
On dating in the public eye: I always wanted to be known for my work. Not who I dated. Not who I slept with. … I have a gift, and my gift is acting. I started in the business at 26 with a kid, so I was smart enough to know reality from fantasy. I didn’t want to blur the lines. This is a job that I have to do. I cannot get caught up in it. And if I sleep with these guys, why would they want to work with me again?
On Terrence Howard’s ongoing legal battles with his ex-wife: Let’s pop the trunk to your life and see what’s dysfunctional and what’s bad… At the end of the day, we’re all human and we got flaws and we got s***. I just know him. We trust each other.
On getting to where she is: I’ve had so many false starts. ‘If it’s easy, what story are you going to tell? Nobody wants to hear about how easy it was. That doesn’t inspire anyone.
