Mo’Nique is truly a very special and unique person. Seems like most people that win an Oscar probably have it displaying in the foyer for everyone to see as soon as they walk in…
NOOOOO! Not Mo’Nique!!! According to her recent interview in the latest issue of Ebony, Mo’Nique says there is no need to look at it everyday because all you’re going to see is it collecting dust… SMH!!!
Ebony: Last year, you won a best-supporting-actress Oscar for your role in Precious. Where is it?
Monique: The Oscar is in what’s considered to be a butler’s pantry. It’s a small hallway that has a counter in it. It’s across the hall from the kitchen and the bathroom.
It’s not in plain view?
You would have to look for it. You couldn’t just walk in my house and see it, I would have to show you where it is. It’s not hiding but you’d have to be looking for it.
Is that not wanting to look at it every day and not wanting to become complacent?
You can’t look at it every day, because you’ll look at it collecting dust. You’re appreciative of the trophy, and you know keep it movin’. Everybody wants to know how the Oscar changed my life. My life was amazing before they called my name on that stage that night, and my life is still amazing since they called my name on that stage that night.
Gotta love her for always breing soooo down to earth. Plus…. she did just start shaving legs at the age of…. EXACTLY!!!
