I seen a clip of an article in Ebony Magazine with Taraji P Henson in it and she was saying that kids want to do reality TV then want to be taken serious in acting. She stated that acting is a craft that needs to be taken serious… (This is not her exact quote, but you get what I mean). It really had me thinking, can a reality star become a movie star?
I honestly see both sides I agree with Taraji to a certain point. If someone is lazy and thinks that just because they have a camera in front of them and they get the views they can be taken seriously as a star I don’t think so. But if you are someone who is given an opportunity to have a reality show and work hard at acting I think it can work. Acting is a difficult craft that I believes takes years to master but it can be mastered. I don’t believe many people can act that is why when you do see a good actor they are usually praised for their talent.
So Taraji is right acting is a craft you have to be willing to put in the work to master it!
