Lauren London is back on the big screen and fans all over the world are commending her strength.
Lauren London takes the lead role in Kenya Barris and Jonah Hill’s “You People” which is currently the number one movie on Netflix right now.
While on a promo run for the new movie, Lauren London stopped by the Drew Barrymore show. The two discussed Laruen getting back into acting following the passing of her longtime partner, Nipsey Hussle. “I’m very apprehensive with just working right now, just grieving still and just, you know, building a new life,” said London. “So, I’m very intentional on who I work with, and Kenya just created a really safe space. And so did Jonah [Hill].”
In March of 2019, Nipsey Hussle was tragically shot and killed outside of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles.
Drew asks how Laruen found the “courage” to begin working again. “Every day is different. So, some days you don’t want to. You just want to lay there,” she answered. “My big reason is my children because they do deserve a really happy mom, and they deserve joy, and they deserve a house that has music playing and incense going and light coming in the windows. They deserve that.”
Laruen also reveals that her oldest son, Kameron Carter, encouraged her to start working again.
“You know, when you lose someone, they’re on the other side wanting you to continue life, as well,” London further stated. “So, I just always think about what I know Nip would want me to do and what I know my children deserve. And what I deserve, too!”
