Ava DuVernay, who’s directed films like I Will Follow and Middle of Nowhere recently spoke with Uptown Magazine, alongside actor Omari Hardwick. DuVernay, who became the first black woman to win Best Director at Sundance for Middle of Nowhere, chatted about the lack of black love stories for directors to study and learn from, what it’s like working with the fineness that is Omari Hardwick, (She didn’t mention his fineness, the two share a more brotherly/sisterly relationship.), and what she gets from each of the actors she works with.

    For the life of me I couldn’t think of his name last week, but he should have been on that ‘short brothers that can get it’ list (my words not MN’s) instead wasting clicks on Ray-J and Neyo. Omari is scrumdiddlyumptious!
