Lady Luck: 15 Actresses Who Hit The Jackpot With Their Leading Men

November 28, 2012 ‐ By M A


Some women have all the luck. If it’s not enough that they’re world famous actresses, they have also scored big-time in the leading man department. No nerdy, unfortunate costars for these stunners. So due partly because we’re incredibly impressed by their choice of projects and partly because we are crazy jealous of their penchant for scoring some truly amazing eye candy, we salute 15 lovely, talented ladies whose string of costars have left us weak in the knees.

    I’m sorry but how is Gabby Union not on this list tho??? LL,Will, Morris etc the list is long

  • Sweetie

    It seems to me that the CASTING DIRECTORS did a great job in matching up the leads in these movies, not the cast.. This article is lame…

  • Susan Marchi

    Olivier Martinez is a dog….woof!!

  • JoJack

    How dare they forget Larenz Tate who starred with Nia Long in “Love Jones”

  • Taz

    1st, gotta do it: ‘Mrs. Robin Thicke certainly has lived QUIET a life.’…??? 2nd, A-Rod is not only finewith those cheeks, but that walk and bow legs also.

  • Nutella’s Baby

    Taraji was Andre 3000’s love interest in Four Brothers.

  • natural_beauty

    Tyra Banks did play Omar Epps fiance in “Love and Basketball”. It was a small role, but she did! Oh yeah, She was with him in “Higher Learning” too. Yeah, and Taraji wasn’t with Mark Wahlberg in the “Four Brothers”, she was the wife of Andre Benjamin (Andre 3000, OutKast)

  • debtay

    meant to spell fiancee

  • debtay

    Tyra Banks played Omar Epps finance in Love and Basketball!!!

  • Bobby

    Nia Long can’t be satisfied with average guy. She wants them extra long.

  • Mr. JD

    Ahm…is it me, or did somebody make a mistake with Tyra Banks starring opposite Omar Epps in “Love and Basketball?” I’m pretty sure that was Sanaa Lathan.

    • xxdiscoxxheaven

      Tyra played his fiance!! After him and Sanaa broke up and he went pro

  • Mel Belle

    this is the dumbest article and the most pointless article I have ever read on here

  • Me

    Ok….Tyra Banks did in fact star in Love and Basketball along with Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan, so let’s ax that debate. However, Mark Wahlberg was NOT Taraji P.Henson’s love interest in Four Brothers. She was Andre 3000’s boo thang.

    • Phoenix Bound

      Thank you. I was thinking the same thing!

  • Shawndrea Rachelle

    Tyra is so pretty

  • chy

    no one mentioned Jada Pinkett

  • Bey

    you forgot Brandy.

  • Ifuaskme2

    OK MN. You got me. I’m thinking relationships you come with acting roles. WTF? Seriously??? Isn’t that what ‘acting’ is all about?

    • Nutella’s Baby

      Yes me too!

  • Meagan DuShea

    Yeah…That was Sanaa Lathan in Love & Basketball with Omar Epps!!!

  • chamoola

    Tyra Banks was NOT in Love and Basketball, that was Higher Learning. SMH

    • TheArtist

      Tyra WAS in Love and Basketball… she played Omar’s love interest once he and Sanaa broke up. Remember the hospital scene?

      • Lisa Bedford Carter

        Thank you because I was on my way to Google that. I forgot about that. 😉

    • Ericka James

      Tyra Banks played Omar Epps’ fiance’ and she did visit him in the hospital scene after his knee injury.

      • Vannnnnnnnnn–

        O, somebody don’t no what their talking about, I’m not saying any names, Ms. Ericka James

        • Phoenix Bound

          Maybe you should watch the movie again. She was Omar Epps’ fiancé who played a flight attendant and like Ericka said, she did visit him in the hospital after his knee injury.

        • Guestest

          The person who doesn’t know what they’re talking about is you. Like Phoenix said, you should watch the movie AGAIN.

    • Nutella’s Baby

      Girl you know better than to misquote scenes from a Black staple movie such as Love and Basketball.

    • Taz

      Tyra was the evil gf in Love & Basketball.

    • JoJack

      Yes she was. She played Omar’s fiance (right before he left her for Sanaa)

  • Justme

    Whaaaaaaaa??? Are “all” these men supposed to be good catches? The bar is so low here that someone’s going to trip on it. There is more to a man than his appearance. Am I too old to be at this sight? Somebody talk to me. LOL. Seriously, this is a great site. A beautiful site. But this article is lame.

    • Gina Jackson-Powell

      Perhaps we are too mature for this slow, sluggish website. Please update your servers–the speed it takes to upload is horrible!

  • rick

    Tyra was also in Higher Learning with Omar Epps. Her role there was MUCH more significant than Love and Basketball

  • JaneDoe

    Adam Rodriguez is a fine man.. That smile ooo wee
