I’ve been blogging for a while about the new Winnie Mandela biopic which is currently being shot in South Africa. I’m so excited because I think Winnie Mandela is a largely misunderstood woman. Just put yourself in her shoes. She was expected to be a freedom fighter, provider, mother and wife to a prisoner, all at the same time. And, like most women, she was expected to be perfect. I salute Winnie Mandela for her strength and courage in the face of stuggle.
The above photo is from Winnie and Nelson’s wedding day. I think she looks beautiful. Pop the top to see a pic of Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard recreating the moment. (more…)
As I had already told you, Jennifer Hudson will be playing Winnie Mandela in the new Winnie biopic. The big news, though, is that Nelson Mandela will be played by none other than Terrence Howard!!! How excited am I! Although I don’t really know if he’s well suited for the part. So used to him looking all pimped out and smooth They are both great actors though and I’m sure they will do their absolute best coz I love me some Winnie!
