PRECIOUS STARS IN VANITY FAIR
Lee Daniels, Mo’Nique and Gabourey Sidibe are featured in the new issue of Vanity Fair, which many are criticizing for its cover. According to the magazine:
Daniels may be the best thing that has happened to actors since Robert Altman. His unforgettable Precious, a harrowing but ultimately hopeful domestic drama, gets its power, in large part, from the brave performances turned in by newcomer Sidibe and the multi-talented writer-comedian-actress Mo’Nique…Together Daniels, Sidibe, and Mo’Nique have given voice and form to characters who might otherwise be invisible.
As we mentioned earlier this week, the trio earned Oscar nominations for their contributions to the film.
