Morris Chestnut Covers UPSCALE Magazine
The much-anticipated “Best Man Holiday” film debut is just around the corner and leading male man candy Morris Chestnut is giving the ladies a taste of what they will see in the film on the latest cover of UPSCALE Magazine.
In addition to gracing the cover with his handsome Hollyweird face, Morris also sat down for a quick chat where he dished on playing such an emotional character this time around and how he feels about marital roles.
Check out a few excerpts from the interview below:
On his role in The Best Man Holiday:
“This movie, this was the most challenging thing that I’ve ever had to do. I was just so emotional. The character was just so emotional—way more than the first one. When we did the first movie, the scene where I was at the altar and I had to cry when I was getting married, that shook me. For, like, years, I would think about that scene. It would give me chills.”
On marital roles:
“I let my wife be the woman. You know? I let her be the woman. And she, in turn, when it comes down to it, she lets me be the man.”
On keeping his relationship strong:
“With my wife, I’m always letting her know what the deal is. ‘It’s you. Ain’t nobody else. It’s you.’ And I think, conversely, that’s what a woman needs to do for a man.”
We’d imagine his wife does get tired of women thirsting over her man at some point, so it’s great to hear that he likes to keep her reassured that she’s the only one for him. Clap for ’em.
