From “The Best Man,” “Love & Basketball,” and “Brown Sugar” to “The Best Man Holiday,” and more, Sanaa Lathan’s professional resume has expanded more than two decades. However, according to the veteran actress, her Hollywood experience hasn’t been all good.
During the New York City premiere of Netflix’s new movie Nappily Ever After, Sanaa Lathan took the time to discuss working in Hollywood’s less-than-friendly atmosphere.
“Just coming up in the business, I have been treated just horribly by some women that you may know. I won’t call any names,” she said, “but when you’re working with somebody who’s maybe a little older than you— now I’m the older one— you don’t expect to get competition, and jealousy, and weird vibes on set. And I was very hurt, very early on in my career by a couple of different women.”
The New York native has worked with some of Hollywood’s A-list actresses so she could be talking about any one of them.
We’re sure fans will be working tirelessly to try and crack the code.
She also shared that she appreciates her relationship with co-star, Lynn Whitfield. She described Ms. Whitfield as a “light”.
“You can tell that. She’s so beautiful inside and out,” Lathan added.
Who do you think Sanaa could possibly be talking about? Let’s hope whomever it is they have made amends.
