Kontrol Magazine wasn’t playing when they nabbed Sanaa Lathan to be the latest cover girl for their brand new Fall 2015 issue! Inside the issue the 43 year old actress gives the run down on how she juggles her success and being a black actress in Hollywood. With her recent success in the movie The Perfect Guy and also landing a lead role in a film adaptation of the book Flyy Girl, Sanaa makes it clear that although it has gotten better, there is still a lack of roles for black actresses. Sanaa states “The solution can be to produce our own projects, as we did with Perfect Stranger, and then we need audiences to support them. At the end of the day Hollywood is a business and numbers do talk. They are going to go with what’s successful and making money.”
She also took some time to shed light on rumors of a Love and Basketball sequel adding “I’ve heard the rumors and I feel like that [Love & Basketball] was a story to itself. I mean how could you go about making a sequel to it? I feel the ending was pretty finite”
