The actress, who got her start at 11 years old on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is starring in Toronto director Sudz Sutherland’s feature Home Again, about the plight of Jamaican deportees. We asked her four questions that had nothing to do with the film:
Q: What are you doing tonight?
A: I’m going to the premiere of my film! I’m so nervous, I haven’t seen it yet, and I always feel weird seeing myself on a big screen. [Tomorrow] I’ll be back at home in L.A., probably hanging out with my boyfriend, nothing too crazy.
Q: What’s your guilty pleasure?
A: It’s so embarrassing but I’m addicted to bad reality TV. I watch all The Real Housewives series and Basketball Wives. They’re all horrible.
Q: What will you never eat?
A: I hate bananas. Especially when they get put together with peanut butter — like, who thought of that? Both ingredients are slimy, why put them together, smooshed between bread?
Q: When is the last time you cried?
A: Oh, I think it was probably a few months ago, when I was at a James Blake concert. His music just really gets to me, I can’t help but get emotional when I hear him sing.
