Queen Latifah Refuses to-Be-Dead Character in Movie Contract
Queen Latifah has a no-death clause in her movie contract, which prevents directors from killing her characters off. The rapper-turned-actress admits she insisted on the addition to her filming paperwork after characters she played lost their lives in "Set It Off" and "Sphere".
The "Chicago" star says, "It occurred to me, 'Wait a minute, you can't do the sequel if you die in all these movies.' I was like, 'Randy - my agent - no more dying, OK'."
On another news, Queen Latifah has been honored with the Power Award at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon on Thursday, March 4. During the event, the actress was prompted to head to the stage as Jada Pinkett Smith, who presented her award, suddenly broke down in tears over the recent death of her father. When Latifah stood behind her, Smith says, "This is what I'm talking about. I don't see her a lot, but she's my girl."
