Actress Sanaa Lathan has been a Hollywood staple since the late ’90s. While she has maintained consistent work since leaving the theater world behind and relocating to L.A., Nathan has kept her private life mostly private. The 42-year-old Best Man Holiday star dated football player Adewale Ogunyele for a few years but other than that, Lathan has kept her dating life to herself. A few months ago, she shared a photo of herself and San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick out together on a romantic dinner date. No word on if the two are a couple or if it was just dinner with a friend.

Hollywood’s brightest stars may seemingly live the glamorous life that millions may dream of but everything that glitters isn’t gold. These celebs were the target of a real-life murder plot simply because they’re famous.
Since the age of 12, Miley Cyrus has been winning fans over as the star of Disney’s “Hannah Montana.” As her popularity grew, so did one crazed fan’s love for the teen star. In 2008, FBI foiled a plot a teenager had to allegedly hijack a plane and crash it into a Miley Cyrus concert. The 16-year-old was apprehended trying to board a flight from L.A. to Nashville carrying duct tape, handcuffs and rope with him. The target was a Lafayette, Louisiana stadium where Cyrus was scheduled to perform. Although the plot was downplayed, authorities acknowledged how serious the crazed teen was.
Yesterday, we gave you the beginning of our updated list of white people black folks love. Here’s the rest.
Sarah Jessica Parker
“Sex and The City,” need we say more? We ride for Miss Carrie Bradshaw and her fabulous fashion and her struggle to find a good man, and her love of Cosmos. She’s our white sister girl in our heads.
Don’t let the blonde hair and wide eyes fool you. A Columbia Pictures rep has confirmed that Cameron Diaz is going to lose the innocent act to play Miss Hannigan in Will Smith and Jay-Z’ Annie remake.
If it’s been a minute since you’ve seen the play or the film adaptations, Miss Hannigan is the alcoholic orphanage matron who can’t stand children and consistently finds ways to make Annie’s life hell.
Earlier reports claimed that Sandra Bullock was in talks to play Ms. Hannigan but apparently, she’s passed. (Can anyone see Sandra playing a meanie?)
Diaz joins Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks, the billionaire who eventually adopts Annie and Quevenzhané Wallis, the Oscar nominated actress who will play the title character.
Carol Burnett most memorably played Ms. Hannigan in the screen version of the play back in 1982.
Now, I don’t know how well Diaz can sing; but her role in Bad Teacher lets me know she’ll probably have no problem tapping into her mean, alcoholic side.
What do you think about this casting decision? Is Diaz a good fit? Will you check out the movie when it comes out?
Sometimes we can’t fathom another actor or actress starring in one of our favorite movies but believe it or not, switches are made behind the scenes all the time and stars miss out on some potentially big opportunities. Here’s a list of 15 actors who passed up roles of a lifetime.
Will Smith- The Matrix
Will Smith has played a cowboy in a western, a captain in the Marine Corp fighting aliens and an agent assigned to track down extraterrestrial alien refugees but do you think he could’ve pulled off the role of a computer programmer in the action sci-fi thriller The Matrix? Well, neither did he. The action mega star admitted he passed up the role of Neo, which went to Keanu Reeves, because he wasn’t ready as an actor. “You know, The Matrix is a difficult concept to pitch. In the pitch, I just didn’t see it. I watched Keanu’s performance – and very rarely do I say this – but I would have messed it up. I would have absolutely messed up The Matrix,” said Smith. “At that point I wasn’t smart enough as an actor to let the movie be. Whereas Keanu was smart enough to just let it be. Let the movie and the director tell the story, and don’t try and perform every moment.”

Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars have publicly battled with drug or alcohol but others have entered rehab for other underlying problems. These 15 celebs sought help for problems other than substance abuse.
Mariah Carey’s diva behavior is legendary but back in 2001, the “Beautiful” singer hit a low point in her career following the release of her semi-autobiographical movie Glitter. After the film tanked, Carey was dropped from her record label. Posting ominous messages on her website to her fans, it was clear something was wrong with Carey. Succumbing to the pressures of the industry, Mimi had a public meltdown and went into treatment. Fast forward four years and a new record deal later, Carey drops The Emancipation of Mimi, which wound up being the biggest album of that year, and returns to superstar status.

Some celebrities are known for their philanthropic work, whether it be giving back to the community or volunteering their time for a specific cause. Here’s a list of celebrities who dug deep in their hearts and wallets to donate big when a natural disaster struck:
When a catastrophic earthquake rocked the tiny Caribbean country of Haiti, it killed more than 230,000 and left millions more without a home. Former Fugees frontman Wyclef Jean was one of the first people who made their way down to his home country to help search for survivors. In addition to helping out physically, the rapper/producer used the power of social media to ask for help, raising more than $1 million for Yele Haiti with a single tweet. All of Jean’s hard work would be overshadowed a year later when his charity came under fire for allegedly squandering millions of dollars in donations. Jean has since released a statement acknowledging the organization’s mistakes and vowed to continue on. “The new and good news is that Yele, under new leadership, despite efforts to undermine its credibility and effectiveness, continues its mission to serve people in need.”

Regardless if someone is rich or poor, young or old, no one is immune from the grim reaper. Stars may live the glamorous life and seem to not have a care in the world but when tragedy suddenly struck these 15 celebrities, they learned first-hand how quickly everything could be snatched away within the blink of an eye.
Tennis star Serena Williams has dominated the courts for almost a decade but her career and life were in severe jeopardy a few years ago. Williams had to undergo emergency surgery when doctors discovered a blood clot in her lung. “I couldn’t breathe and I just thought I was out of shape, so I thought I needed to get on the treadmill or hit the gym,” the 30-time Grand Slam champion said. “It could have gotten a whole lot more serious a day or two later – it could have been really not good, possibly career-ending, but for the grace of God we caught it in time and I was able to recover.
Out of all the children of celebs in Hollywood, Louis is probably my favorite. He recognizes the amount of attention the paparazzi love to give his mother, Sandra Bullock, and that everybody wants to take his picture too–and he doesn’t like it. I’ve seen more pics of Louis frowning it up like a grown man than any other kind, and they honestly are the cutest things ever. They literally make me smile with my heart. In this particular picture, Louis and his mom were caught stepping out into the rain as little man was on his way to school. Aptly dressed for the weather, he’s decked out in a fab newsboy cap, baseball jacket and green Velcro kicks, looking funky fresh dressed to impress and ready to learn (or to get ready to kick it with his little homies).
So how would you caption this cute photo of little Louis looking fabulous? Do tell below!
