Sanaa Lathan And Michael Ealy Talk “The Perfect Guy” Movie
The duo took to the city’s Time Lounge where they met with bloggers and photographers to dish on their movie that follows the romance between Leah (Sanaa) and Carter (Michael Ealy) that turns sour after Carter turns out to be a crazed stalker and sociopath.
BOSSIP was on hand for the event and chatted with the stars about real life stalkers and on set fun between Sanaa, Michael and their costar Morris Chestnut.
Sanaa Lathan on behind the scenes fun:
One day I get to work with Michael, the next day I get to work with Morris. They kept me laughing. A lot of my girlfriends never want to visit on set but this was one of the times when they would say, ‘oh hey, can I come to work with you?!’
Michael Ealy on playing “the bad guy”:
I like to think of Carter as more than a stalker. I feel like for me as an actor it’s always good to diversify your body of work, I don’t want to play a good guy for the rest of my life. I’ve been dying to play a bad guy. It was just about finding that right part. They were a couple times she [Sanaa] was really scared.
On “Fatal Attraction” inspiring the film:
That was one of our inspirations, it’s one of those classic suspense, sexy thrillers that shocked the world when it came out and it did so well.
The Perfect Guy hits theaters September 11.
