For decades, Whites actors and actresses have been cast to play people of color in Hollywood, making whitewashing a very nasty habit in Tinsel Town. But these Black actors managed to turned the table and were selected to star in traditionally White roles.
Michael B. Jordan
Comic book fans everywhere were in an uproar when Michael B. Jordan was selected to play Johnny Storm in the reboot of The Fantastic Four. But Chris Evans, who first played the role a decade earlier, gave Jordan his stamp of approval in hopes to appease loyal fans. The film tanked anyway at the box office and studio executives hope the sequel, which had already been announced, can salvage the franchise.
According to Vogue Magazine, “There’s only on September issue, and there’s only one Beyoncé.” So it makes sense that the fashion bible of style and sartorial enthusiasts snagged the leader of the Beyhive to grace their popular September issue. A historical moment in itself as Beyoncé is the third Black woman to cover their September issue, following Naomi Campbell in 1989 and Halle Berry in 2010.
Amongst the trio, there have been a handful of other Black beauties spreading their #BlackGirlMagic on the cover of Vogue and it’s various international editions.

When you say the title Monster’s Ball, you’re liable to get a few reactions. Some people will immediately and only remark on the sex scene with Halle Berry and Billy Bob Thorton. Others will tell you how, aside from all the hoopla, it was actually a really good film; and others think it was completely overrated. Everybody’s got an opinion. It’s something like a polarizing film, particularly in the Black community. But we’ll get into that later. Check out some of the lesser known facts behind the making of this movie.

Badmouthed: 15 Actors Who Bashed Their Own Movies
Don’t know if you noticed but the Oscars didn’t exactly have that much for Black people. With the exception of Common and John Legend performing and winning the Academy Award for their song “Glory,” the show was a sea of White faces. It’s the reason we didn’t live tweet the show like we usually do. Instead, we simply showed you what our faves were wearing on the carpet. So in honor of our disappointment and in anticipation for tonight’s BET Honors, we’re highlighting some of the Blackest moments from award shows in the past decade or so.
At 48 years old, Halle Berry is just as stunningly beautiful as she was when first emerged on the Hollywood scene. But the mom of two says although that she has never undergone cosmetic surgery and insists that she probably never will, it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t feel pressured to do so.
“It is pressure,” she confessed to Yahoo! Beauty. “When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, ‘To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?'”
However, the beauty adds that the pressure doesn’t simply come from within. Apparently, she is frequently asked to get work done.
“I won’t lie and tell you that those things don’t cross my mind, because somebody is always suggesting it to me,” she said. “’You know if you just did a little bit of this and that, lift this up, then this would be a little bit better.’ It’s almost like crack that people are trying to push on you. That’s what I feel like.”
As for how she combats this pressure, the Academy Award-winning actress had this to say:
“I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self. Aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us. I think of those women that I thought aged so beautifully, like Lena Horn. Even how Jane Fonda is aging — I don’t know what she has or hasn’t done, but she looks beautiful as she’s going about her way. I just want to always look like myself, even if that’s an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way.”
According to Berry, her peers and women in general should simply learn to embrace the aging process and work with what they’ve got.
“We have to stop wanting to look like that decade before,” she said. “We have to stop coveting that. Let it go and embrace it now and really be okay. It’s easy to say, I guess, but that’s the goal.”
It’s refreshing to know that this iconic beauty is continuing to embrace the skin she’s in–despite external pressures.

Sick of It!: 15 Celeb Fights With Paparazzi
Does Olivier have a problem keeping his hands to himself or do people keep testing the wrong one? We all remember the beat down he gave to Nahla’s father and Halle’s ex, Gabriel Aubry, a few years ago. Brutal.
That could have very well been warranted. Who knows?
And though it’s been a while since Olivier’s hands have caused him to make the news, recently when the family was walking through LAX, an airport employee caused him to pop off once again.
From the video, it’s not entirely clear what happened but we see Olivier take a baby carseat and shove a man, knocking him to the floor.
Halle looks back at the man briefly but the family keeps walking toward the car. And that’s when things get a little crazy. The paparazzi and other videographers start yelling things like “assault” and asking the police escorts why Olivier was able to get away with such a thing.
Olivier says something to one of the photographers, they tell Halle to call the police on her man and say they hope he doesn’t put his hands on her at home. (Low blow.)
By this time, the airport employee has gathered himself and tells a videographer that he plans on pressing charges.
This same man was treated at the scene and taken to the hospital later. He complained of abdominal pain and he’s also filed a battery report.
I’m kind of on the fence about this one. It’s quite possible that this airport employee was an opportunist attempting to incite Olivier with a camera phone or a slick message as he ran up on him. But Olivier also needs to do a bit better than this. If not, he’ll always be a target.
What do you make of this situation?
