Meagan Good’s star is shining bright lately, with her recent lead role in the movie “Think Like a Man” and her recent nuptials to Seventh-day Adventist pastor and Sony Pictures executive, DeVon Franklin.
According to Upscale magazine the actress shared, in a interview, that she felt like she was being stereotyped because some of the roles she has played have been promiscuous.
The 30 year old spoke about wanting to show movie directors other aspects of her acting skills that did not have to include sex appeal.
Good says that she has had auditions where a director told her ‘We really like you, but you’re a little bit too sexy,’ and that even if she tried to dress differently it would not help because it’s just something that she “gives off”.
The actress does not necessarily agree with the directors, saying,
”I believe that people, when they have a preconceived notion of who you are, and things you’ve done in the past, sometimes they forget that as an actor you’re able to shut off whatever you need to shut off, and you’re able to turn on whatever you need to turn on.”
Even though, Good has to listen to directors and others tell her what they think of her and what she is capable of as an actress, she still firmly believes that it’s important for her to define herself and what power means to her.
She defines it as:
“…being able to move, and live, and do the things that you aspire to do and that you believe are part of your purpose to do, without letting other people’s opinions or judgements manipulate your direction, without getting discouraged when a door closes, and just kinda having a good sense of self, and knowing who you are, and being strong in your walk with God. All of that, to me, is what power is.”
The actress is currently working on filming for “Infamous,” the new series on NBC that she will be starring in. She shares that she has had to adjust to being a pastors wife, saying that she has noticed that people tend to sensationalize her life more in that role.
Good claims that the most appealing thing about her husband is that he “loves the Lord”.
