She’s About To Be Everywhere: Nicki Minaj Lands Her First Feature Film Role Alongside Cameron Diaz In “The Other Woman”
Just when you thought she couldn’t get anymore jobs, Nicki Minaj is going from your radio, to your TV screen, and now the big screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Minaj has just nabbed a role in the Cameron Diaz-led film, The Other Woman, where she will play Diaz’s character’s assistant. This assistant will of course be sassy, aka “opinionated,” and will be a woman who is trying to make her third marriage (yes, THIRD) work.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot will follow a woman, played by Diaz, who uncovers that she is actually the other woman in an affair. To get back at the cheating man, who is married (and played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Diaz will team up with his wife (played by Leslie Mann) to exact some proper revenge. The movie will be directed by Nick Cassavetes, who is behind The Notebook and My Sister’s Keeper.
This isn’t Minaj’s first time in a movie actually, it will just be the first time she actually physically appears in one. Minaj contributed her voice to the film, Ice Age: Continental Drift, playing Steffie. And while you might try and side-eye her film endeavors, she actually was acting before she was rapping. She was even cast in an off-Broadway play in 2001 and studied drama in high school. However, when she graduated, her film career didn’t blow up like she thought and she ended up becoming more interested in music. Funny how things are coming back around full circle. Congrats to her!
But real talk, would you go see her in this film? Why or why not?
