*It’s been a while since we’ve seen sweet Jurnee Smollett-Bell on the big screen, but she’s back in the latest Tyler Perry flick, “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor” which opens March 29.
Jurnee plays the role of the fly on the wall, aka the marriage counselor. Her life gets a little complicated when she falls into her own bit of temptation and has an affair behind her husband’s back.
“I honestly wasn’t concerned about how people would receive me as this character,” Smollett-Bell told theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon. “Because it’s not like she’s all bad… she’s very complex. And those are the elements that intrigue me as an artist; those shades of grey.”
When asked about Kim Kardashian’s debut as a big screen actress, she said it’s a judgment call the rest of the world should make after viewing the film.
“She was so sweet to me on the set,” Smollett says of Kardashian. “She was very open, she wanted to learn from Tyler, she was so eager to really try to make this the best that she could. Honestly her character is kind of similar to her little sassy relationship that she has with her sisters, so Tyler and I tried to draw that out of her, and just pretty much told her to think of me as one of her sisters.”
Aww, how sweet. And reading between the lines, not exactly a ringing endorsement of Kim’s acting skills, if you ask us.
