Actress Nia Long covers the April/May issue of Uptown magazine, and in the mag the Uncle Buck, actress says,“I’m a woman over 40, so thank God I’m working.” “I’m not trying to be an ingénue anymore. I wouldn’t want those opportunities because then that would just mean that I haven’t grown.”
Long has grown up with us and has transitioned from a Gen X hip-hop honey, into a mother, wife and regularly working actress. As she navigates her 40s, she has managed to carve out an enduring representation of black womanhood through her impressive body of work.
“I think the whole point as an artist is that you want your work, in some sort of way, to reflect how you’ve evolved as a person and as a woman. The more you work, the smarter you are,” she reflects.
