Thursday, October 2, 2008 Oprah Show: The Cast of 'The Secret Life of Bees'
The Oprah Show was great today as Oprah welcomed the entire cast of The Secret Life of Bees including Queen Latifah, Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys and Sophie Okonedo.
Each woman had her chance to go up on stage and sit with Oprah herself and update viewers on their role in the film and also a bit on their personal lives. Queen Latifah went first and talked about her experience on Jenny Craig, followed by Dakota Fanning who is now 14 and shared a bit on her life as a high school cheerleader. Alicia Keys talked about relating to her character June who is an independent music teacher who has fears about getting Married. Alicia shared that she understands where her character comes from but also recognizes that marriage is both tough and beautiful. Jennifer Hudson introduced her fiance David and announced her new album has been released. Sophie Okonedo discussed her process of learning a new character, especially one who "carries the weight of the world on her shoulders."
Hearing from these amazing women and seeing clips from the film make me anxious for its release on October 17, 2008 - be sure to go check it out!
