Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon and Tichina Arnold were seen working that catwalk swagger at the "10,000 BC" premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theatre last night. Rashida Jones attended the grand opening of Steven Alan's Hollywood store.
Speaking of which, Rashida recently had a few words about her racial identity significance. I understand where Rashida is coming from as I argue literally everyday about where I'm from exactly. Anyhow, here's what Rashida had to say...
"I definitely learned my lesson. I'm back to that place were I'm like, 'You know what? I'm black, I'm white, I'm Jewish, I'm Irish, I'm Portuguese, I'm Welsh, what the f**k ever.' To me it's so inconsequential. "People still say things to me like, 'Oh my god, you're black? I would've never guessed that.' And I just think, I can't help your ignorance. There are bi-racial people who look like me or who look like Alicia Keys or who look like Halle Berry. I'm so proud to be so many things." [quote via Pop-Junkie]
Garcelle's 1988 film, "Coming to America" will celebrate its 20th anniversary this June! Click here and here to watch my favorite scenes from the movie.
