Mo’Nique Chats with Ellen about her role in Precious


When the hilarious comedian took on the role of an abusive mother in the film Precious ( Based on the Novel Push By Sapphire) the actress set her current contentment aside and recalled a much harder time in her life. 

Check out the clip below as she chats with Ellen about her role in the movie.

Mo’Nique says playing the role was rewarding.  ” It was exciting.  It was challenging because I love to laugh, baby, I love to laugh.  But it was appreciated because I don’t know of any other director that would have given two fat, black women the opportunity to do what we did.  The world needs to see it because guess what…Mary Jones exists, baby.  So does Precious.”

Kudos to you Monique!
