THICKSATIONAL LADIES JENNIFER HUDSON AND QUEEN LATIFAH WILL STAR IN THE UPCOMING FILMÂ “THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES”.
Hudson is the caretaker of Dakota Fanning, who flees her love-barren home to live with a trio of beekeeping sisters (Queen Latifah, Sophie Okonedo and Alicia Keys).
“It’s very raw, very raw. It affected each of us in some kind of way,” says Hudson. “Like with me, I had to do research like crazy on the civil rights movement. That messed with my mind. And then I had to fight three white men because I was my own stunt double.”
“I’ve never had to be this involved in anything in my life! I had to touch a bug. I had a fit, honey. I nearly lost my mind! It was a beetle, but luckily, it was beautiful.”
The Secret Life of Bees will be in theaters Oct. 17.
Civil rights movement and beetlesÂ huh?Â I don’t know about this movie but since two of my favorite thickettes, one of my favorite singers (Keys), and little FanningÂ areÂ in the movie I will definitely support.
