Pantene Pro-V spokeswoman Sanaa Lathan has been keeping quite busy. With a new endorsement, successful TV show (The Cleveland Show) and upcoming movie under her belt, she’s going full steam ahead in 2012.
On Best Man 2…
“Nothing has been confirmed yet regarding Best Man 2, but it is a great script that we have all read. Itâ€™s all on the studio and them deciding to do it. I know a lot of people are excited and anticipating the movie, but we all just have to cross our fingers and hopefully it will all come together. Everyone in the cast is excited and on board, and I think people will be really pleasantly entertained to see where these characters have evolved over the twelve years.”
On the Kobe Bryant rumors (Lathan tweeted:
“Anybody who pays attention knows Iâ€™m not
his typeâ€¦ Blank stare. #blackgirlsrock
I probably shouldnâ€™t have said that because I donâ€™t discriminate when it comes to dating. I have dated all races and I believe you should be free to do whatever you want. But I was so annoyed because I was having such a great time at the concert and Kobe happen to be standing next to me, and then all of a sudden I was tied to his break-up. Thatâ€™s absurd, and I tweeted that in the moment, and I regret it. But to each its own. Itâ€™s just funny that if itâ€™s written people believe it, and even though I have said I have nothing to do with him, people are still saying when is the baby due?
On her upcoming movie…
“I have ‘Vipaka,’ butÂ they are thinking about changing the title. Itâ€™s a physiological thriller with Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie. We shot it in New Orleans last August. Itâ€™s scary, sexy and tense. They are still editing it, so Iâ€™m not really sure when it will be out.”
