Idris’ Experience With Bey “Your Team Needs To Sit Down”

- By Bossip Staff

Obsessed hit theaters on Friday, and Idris Elba says that although the film ended up being great, Beyonce’s controlling team hindered their progress in the beginning:

Connecting With Beyonce…
“I think this was a very important role for her, because it was the first time she wasn’t playing a singer. But when we first started taping, it was difficult for us to really connect as artists because she has such a huge machine behind her. So in the early going it felt divided … almost like it was her and her team on one side, and everyone else on the other. But once the cameras started rolling, she really opened up and those walls began to fall. As a result, I really saw her grow as an artist, and I think you’ll be able to see it as well when you watch the film.”

Elba’s take on the film receiving a PG-13 rating …
“The process of making a movie with Beyoncé was unique, just because she’s such a huge superstar. So when I first looked at the script, I thought the film could have and probably should have received an “R” rating on subject matter alone. But Beyoncé has such a responsibility to her younger fans that I believe it was necessary for them not to try certain things because of that responsibility.”

Damn. Even sexual chocolate referred to her team as a “machine.” Who’s planning on going to see Bey kick some pseudo ass on Friday?

Check out this surprisingly good performance of like 50 chicks in Piccadilly Square in London doing the “Single Ladies” routine. Apparently they were shooting for Trident.

  • Me No Likey

    I think Idris is being shady by discussing her team. All BIG stars have a machine/team around them to look out for their best interests.

    She talks so stupid to me. She sounds so stupid when she talks. Yuck
    After she sang at the Inaguration Ball, she did an interview. SHe said that the President makes her want to be smater. That was teh dumbest thing I have ever heard. So are you saying, I am dumb and I want to understand what he is talking about?

  • Smoovee Sayz

    I think Beyonce messed up because she allowed herself to be “typecast”…She only played one type of role before and that was a singer. A singer always playing a singer cant be a good look especially if you are trying to become a “serious” actress. A lot of ppl just arent buying it. But who knows she might suprise us…on dvd that is.
    Idris is looking nice as usual.

  • Telly

  • jb_1030 (.35 seconds is like a lifetime in the 40)

    Remember Bey made $80 million last yr.. and who knows how much this yr she doesnt need the attention she is already getting it
    What does this have to do witht he fact that she can’t act? SHe didn’t make all that money from acting did she? I mean did I miss something, is she up in the Julia Roberts price range, $20 million per film?

  • Missunderstood

    @ luv-lee

    The Wire, go cop seasons.. oh hell, go cop them all. You will see Stringer Bell, I mean Idris Elba :), and how he got his start, and his fame, AND his following…. One of the best dramas EVER on TV…

  • MsStarStatus82

    lol @ jb1030, not u didn’t miss a thing. her money came from her tour, product endorsements, ring tones, having witters credits(even tho we all kno some of that she didn’t deserve cuz she wasn’t the writer) and her cd being multi-platinum. Acting will NEVER give her that kind of wealth, she’ll never be a Halle or a Julia.

  • undressingHER

    well if they’re holding back for Beyonce….then they should have got someone else. Kerri Washington??!!!
