In 15 days, the highly anticipated sequel, Best Man Holiday, is scheduled to hit theaters. The film’s stars have been pretty busy doing press interviews to promote the upcoming theater release—including mancandy Morris Chestnut. The 44-year-old heartthrob appears on the November cover of Upscale Magazine, looking as dapper as ever. Inside, he opened up about his latest film project.
“This movie, this was the most challenging thing that I’ve ever had to do. I was just so emotional. The character was just so emotional—way more than the first one. When we did the first movie, the scene where I was at the altar and I had to cry when I was getting married, that shook me. For, like, years, I would think about that scene. It would give me chills,” Morris said.
He also dished on how he keeps his marriage to wife, Pam Byse-Chestnut, thriving after 18 years of marriage.
“I let my wife be the woman. You know? I let her be the woman…And she, in turn, when it comes down to it, she lets me be the man…”
One can only imagine how difficult it can be at times to be married to a sex symbol such as Morris, but the Best Man Holiday actor says that he frequently reassured his leading lady that she is his one and only.
“With my wife, I’m always letting her know what the deal is. ‘It’s you. Ain’t nobody else. It’s you.’ And I think, conversely, that’s what a woman needs to do for a man.”
