Don’t Ask Me to Play the “Sassy Black Girl.” It’s Cringe.
Ever since I watched Home Alone (1990) as a kid, I thought acting was a great career choice. You can play fun movie roles, wear pretty dresses, and walk the red carpet meeting your favorite celebrities. I didn’t care much for the fame. I was more excited about living in Hollywood or New York City. Macaulay Culkin could’ve been my next-door neighbor.
