Black and Sexy
Your new movie, A Good Day to Be Black & Sexy, has a promising title, but I get the feeling it might be a Tyler Perry flick in disguise.
No, it's definitely not a chick flick. It's six scenes that explore love and sexuality. It's a really good couples movie. It opens up a very good venue to talk about sex.
What types of bedroom antics are uncovered?
Infidelity, interracial relationships, oral gratification, virginity.
All my favorites. What is your scene about?
It's called "Her Manâ€ and it's about infidelity.
Infidelity, huh? Is that a topic you're familiar with?
When I originally read [the script] I didn't want to do it, because you're not supposed to judge the characters that you play. She's a mess, but it made me challenge myself and go out of my comfort zone to explore who she could possibly be.
Speaking of comfort zones, you spend most of your scene in bed. Do you show any skin?
I do have nudity in my vignette. When my scene opens up we're in the bed and it's hot and heavy. You get to see the side of my butt and the nice side boob shot.
Is it strange seeing yourself naked on the big screen?
Of course, I'm the only one with no clothes on! All the other girls are in the bed with T-shirts. The first time I saw it I was like, "Hey, I didn't get the memo that we could wear a shirt."
At least it'll get people into the theater. Where can they check out the film?
We were lucky enough to get a week run at the Bridge in L.A. at the Howard Hughes Center. It starts Friday, December 5 and runs to December 11. You can go to theblackandsexymovie.com for showtimes.â€”Ryan Murphy
