Oscar-winning bombshell Moâ€™Nique opens up about the backlash she has received over the last few months about being a difficult actress to work with.
In a new interview with magazine Rolling Out, Moâ€™Nique clarifies that sheâ€™s simply not difficult to work with, sheâ€™s just outspoken on certain issues most people would rather remain silent on.
â€œSo when you say â€˜backlash,â€™ I donâ€™t buy into that. There are just things that happen that we donâ€™t want to really take responsibility for and itâ€™s easier to say â€˜Oh well, they were being a diva. They were being difficult.â€™â€, Moâ€™Nique points out.
â€œNo one wants to tell the whole story. People can say â€˜Moâ€™Nique is difficultâ€™ just because Iâ€™m simply holding you to your word and asking you to be respectful. I understand why people say it, but we donâ€™t always know the truth. How do I feel about the backlash? I donâ€™t. Because Iâ€™ve never been afraid of the truthâ€.
The 47-year-old actress/comedienne attracted controversy recently after revealing that she believes sheâ€™s been â€œblackballedâ€ by Hollywood following her Oscar win. She and â€œPreciousâ€ director Lee Daniels were drawn into a media firestorm, offering opposing views in regard to exactly what happened.
