Queen Latifah – Rappers Who Became Movie Stars

Even in small roles in movies like ‘Jungle Fever’ and ‘Juice,’ Dana “Queen Latifah” Owens caught audiences’ attention, with her combination of confident attitude and refreshingly “normal” physicality. But after playing Cleopatra Sims in ‘Set It Off,’ she showed audiences that she was capable of more serious fare, which at the same time could be truly entertaining. She deservedly received multiple nominations for her turn in the film adaptation of Chicago, and after that went on a tear, playing hilarious characters in films like ‘Bringing Down the House’ and ‘Last Holiday,’ while injecting them with intelligence and just enough sophistication to teach audiences while she kept them laughing.
