It’s been a year for Mo’Nique!
Nearly two years after calling for us to boycott Netflix for them offering her a measly $500,000 for a stand-up show, the Oscar winner has slowly risen. From snatching Steve Harvey’s eyebrows for telling her to play the game to performing in her Vegas residency this summer to recently filing a lawsuit against Netflix for gender and race discrimination, Mo is proving that you better not ever count her out of the game.
She’ll always come back swinging.
That, and according to Variety, it was announced that she has been cast as the lead in the upcoming film Mother Trucker, an indie action film set during the Congressional impeachment hearings to remove President Richard Nixon from office.
Mo’Nique will portray a mother, struggling with anger management issues, who is forced to steal her suddenly deceased husband’s trucking haul to provide for her daughter.
“I knew this was unique from the jump, because of the countless scripts we’ve read together, the only other time my husband said ‘this is special’ was for a little movie named ‘Precious,’” she told the entertainment trade publication.
But even better: Today, December 11 is the actress’s 52nd birthday! This is the fittest and the flyest she has ever looked!
She can thank all of her workouts with her trainer and her raw diet for that SNATCHED WAIST!!!
So to celebrate the gray-haired beauty here are all the times that Mo’Nique proved that her 50s are most definitely fab:
