“Girls Trip” Is Available On Demand, Blu-ray & DVD
Kofi Siriboe said even he’s surprised by what seems like his overnight success in Hollywood.
He’s become one of Black Twitter’s all time favorite panty-melters, enjoyed a love scene with Jada Pinkett-Smith in “Girls Trip” and gained a cult following as Ralph Angel Bordelon on “Queen Sugar.”
“I’m still processing it all,” Siriboe told BOSSIP, adding that since he’s been shooting back to back – first “Girls Trip,” then season two of “Queen Sugar” – he hasn’t had time to take it all in. “I’m one of those people who really likes to take their time,” he said. “I’m still computing it all.”
Nevertheless, Siriboe said he appreciates the love from the ladies, and hopes he can use his eye candy status to spread positivity.
“It’s an honor,” Siriboe said. “Anytime people show you love you have to appreciate that…I genuinely believe my purpose is to make people’s minds flutter and hearts flutter, but to also let people pay attention to the messages that are bigger than me.”
The 23-year-old stars in this summer’s smash hit “Girls Trip,” which is now on digital and available on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand. He said he couldn’t believe his luck when he got to make out Pinkett-Smith, his childhood crush, for the film.
“That was crazy because I’ve been crushing on Jada since I was a kid,” he said. “Jada is just THE figure. She and Will represent so much.”
