#BLACKGIRLMAGIC is in full effect as Chocolate-Covered Actress NIA LONG covers THE TRAVEL ISSUE for the April/May 2016 edition of UPTOWN Magazine!!!
Here are some interview interludes:
On still working while over 40:
“I’m a woman over 40, so thank God I’m working,” says Long, 45. “I’m not trying to be an ingénue anymore. I wouldn’t want those opportunities because then that would just mean that I haven’t grown.”
On her role in the movie Keanu:
“I think the whole point as an artist is that you want your work, in some sort of way, to reflect how you’ve evolved as a person and as a woman. The more you work, the smarter you are,” she reflects.
On putting being a great mom her number one priority:
“I think parenting is one of those things you have to get right,” Long says emphatically. “I really am accountable for who I’m creating, or who I’m helping to create.”
