Actress on finding herself, Michael Ealy and All those love scenes
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 14, 2014
Joy Bryant has that lethal combination of beauty, smarts and an assured sense of self. The actress made her breakthrough in the 2002 drama Antwone Fisher and landed major roles in other high-profile projects like Honey, The Skeleton Key, and Get Rich Or Die Tryin. Shes now paired up with heartthrob Michael Ealy in the romantic comedy About Last Night.
When I found out they were doing a contemporary funny remake [of the film], it was a no-brainer for me, Bryant tells New York-based writer Todd Williams. Equally important was being able to work with Kevin [Hart] and Mike and Regina [Hall].
The film is a frank and funny look at sex, one-night stands, and relationships and Bryant was well aware that the original never shied away from intimate moments.
Its pretty easy to understand why Joy Bryant doesnt get intimidated very easily. Bryant began attending a private school in Connecticut, worlds away from the South Bronx that she knew so well.
Joy excelled at the school and went on to Yale before she dropped out to pursue modeling. Now, looking back, she feels as though all of those experiences helped thicken her skin as well as expand her worldview.
When I dropped out of Yale and started modeling, having had exposure to a world outside of my neighborhood was great, she says.
