Michael Ealy speaks about Taraji P. Henson letting him know he had a certain smell while taping “Think Like A Man 2.”
During a recent interview, Michael explains, “we’re doing a scene in ‘Think Like A Man 2’ and I had just had a kid so I didn’t get a chance to really like, you know, workout and prepare for this role and stuff. So right before this scene where I’m like shirtless in the bed with her and stuff like that I did about 250 pushups, right? Not in a row.”
The actor continued, “pump up the muscles, you know, make it look, get the blood flow going. That’s a trick that everybody does. It makes you a lil’ moist and sweaty too. Glistening, yeah.”
“I was glistening and I’m laying down with her. We were like in between takes and she’s like, kind of like in here, ‘cause I’m kind of like on top of her and we’re just sitting there between the take and she says to me, she goes ‘hmm, you kinda ripe.’”
“She was like Michael Ealy is not perfect. I was like ‘I mean Taraji you saw me doing the push-ups come on. You know what I’m going through.’ She was like ‘I’m just telling you.’”
