Like we promised, this is the follow up to African American Actors Then and Now. Enjoy seeing your favorite actresses from their younger years and how they look now. All are beautiful either way.
People forget that Whoopi went into film acting after her very successful one woman show which included dates at New York’s famed Radio City Music Hall.
Hot does not begin to describe Ms. Fox!
And she just won an Emmy for her incredible contributions to the small screen which is a big achievement. First African American woman to win for her lead role.
Ms. Williams with her Miss America crown which they stripped from her because nude pictures of her surfaced. Undaunted, she became a recording star and a TV and movie Star. And guess who came knocking on her door for her to appear on their show.
Vanessa A. Williams
Do y’all see how fine Vanessa A. Williams looks? I can’t wait for all woman to get older if age has that affect on everyone. (I know I’m suppose to write like a professional scribe but I can’t help it!)
Tyra was chosen to be the first African American woman to appear on the cover of Sports Illustration’s popular swimsuit edition. But they threw her a curve ball (pun intended). She appeared on the cover with a white model. There was an uproar from everyone that she should have been hired to appear on the cover by herself. The uproar came from everyone except Tyra Banks. The next year she did appear on the cover solo and the above picture is the one they used. Tyra is beautiful and classy. Keep doing you girl!
My celebrity crush.
Yes, the legendary Tina Turner is an actress. You can see her in the original “Mad Max”.
Tia and Tamera Mowry
How cute were they. Now, it’s, how beautiful are they.
Tatyana aint no little girl no more.
Everyone’s favorite mean girl.
Taraji P. Henson
Ms. Dash caught a lot of flack because she endorsed Mitch Romney instead of Barack Obama. Come on y’all. Can’t the lady chose who she wants without us coming down on her? And look at that smile. That should make you forgive her.
Sheryl Lee Ralph
She played the sassy African American girl in a Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier movie. Her now picture shows how timeless she is.
Sanaa Lathan is my celebrity fantasy. She once said it takes a strong man to date an actress who has to have love scenes with leading men. Sanaa, you can kiss all the actors your job calls for. As long as you come home to me. And no you can’t go wrong with a LBD. You couldn’t go wrong with a potato sack.
Robin Givens has a reputation as a gold digger. If that’s the case, hand me a pan and point me to a stream ’cause I’ve got some work to do.
From child star to gorgeous woman. She done good!
Fellas, remember when Shaun Wayans had a sex scene with Regina Hall in “Don’t Be a Menance to Your Hood . . .”? Don’t you wish that was you?
People are calling for Ms. Simone to be fired from “The View”. Producers have said she is in no danger of being let go for comments she’s made.
During her rap days!
Kevin Hart’s crush on “. . .Hollywood Husbands”.
Paula Jai Parker
Every guys fantasy in the 70s, 80s, 90s . . .you get the picture.
I just wanna say Damnnnnn for that Now pic!
The ultimate Diva.
Ms. McCoy says she’s not a gold digger. That was high school. She says she’s up to platinum. You gotta love her!
Ms. Bonet’s daughter, Zoe, is acting and I bet if I had put her daughter’s pic up as Lisa Bonet’s then pic you guys would not have known the difference.
Remember Sunshine from “Harlem Nights”? Thank God those cheek bones aint going nowhere.
Ms. Fields is more behind the camera now but she began as an actress.
Fellas, I bet y’all want her to cause a scandal with you. I know I do.
Keke has certainly shaken up the industry with her Maxim pics!
Keisha Knight Pulliam
Beauty is not measured in pounds but in grace which makes Jennifer beautiful no matter what the scale reads.
And she married a billionaire. I wonder if he has a sister.
If you think her now pic looks good you should see her mother in a two piece!
Remember when Halle grabbed Jamie Foxx’s member at an award show? Some guys have all the luck.
I’m pretty sure gay guys wanted to hit Garcelle Beauvais!
Too bad fellas, Dwayne Wade got that on lock.
Essence Atkins met her husband on Match.com. I’m signing up as I write.
One of the original Divas.
Now you see where Tracee Ellis-Ross got it from.
Ms. Tyson is 90. It’s all in the genes.
Brandy once had a teacher to tell her she wasn’t pretty enough to make it. Whoever that lady is, she’s stupid! Thank God Brandy didn’t listen to her.
Jay Z is a lucky dude. I’m gonna work on my metaphors.
