Interview by Gary Thomas
Having a beautiful spirit, a lot of love, and advocacy of major movements are qualities most people aspire to have. These same qualities are naturally exuded by comedian and actress Mo’Nique.
If you couldn’t get enough of her humor, versatility, or genuine personality, Academy Award winner Mo’Nique is back on screen with even more to offer viewers. In The Parkers she gave you love and happiness. In Precious she gave you disgust and disdain. Mo’Nique is again on the big screen giving you faith and strong will as she plays the role of Claire Rousseau in the indie film “Blackbird” directed by Patrik Ian Polk. Mo’Nique and her husband, Sidney Hicks, also executive produce the film.
Bleu Magazine gets a chance to catch up with Mo’Nique and talk about her career, acting and the new film.
